The Smartphones I know about have headphone jacks that can only supply microscopic amounts of power to speakers.

Nope, FMW is telling you like it is - you need an amplifier. A lost cost (ca $20-30 ) T-amp might do the job, depending. But don't get tricked into spending a lot of money on the T-amp approach because you can get a full-function 5.1 AVR for change from $100 these days.
