Because of the extra tier on the 3.5mm jack/hub that connects the 3rd Gen. iPod Shuffle to other appliances, to connect the iPod to anything but the specific headphones that come with or similar compatible headphones you need an adapter.
If you look under the Apple Store for iPod Nano Accessories you will find the Belkin Headphone Adapter. This will allow you to harvest the audio signal and still maintain control over the iPod's basic operations (Pause, Play, Skip Songs, Select Playlists, Use Voice Over, etc.).
Once you have isolated the audio signal from the control functions of the iPod it is simply a manner of running a 3.5mm cable through whatever jack size adapters are necessary and into an amplifier with the necessary amplification requirements to reach the OHM level your' external speakers need to distribute your' audio signal.
