Hey, I just got my new speaker set. After I plugged everything up I turned the power on the right speaker (one with the little power dial) and nothing, no light, no sound nothing. Its as if there isnt any power going to the speakers. Can someone please help me.. A few things to know.:
1) Im in the Uk and yes the voltage etc is all correct, got it from a amazon.co.uk
2) I tested my old creative inspire 2.1 set right speaker (power dial) as I know it works, but again no power.. Thus I can assume that the right speaker itself isnt the problem.
3) The adapter becomes hot when plugged in..just like it normally should.
Am I missing something? a on button or something silly?
Please could I get some advice.
I have the same problem with the Creative Inspire t6100 system. I am 100% confident that everything is plugged in correctly however I can not get any sound from the speakers and no indication that there is power getting to them. I have recently bought a sound blaster x-fi 5.1 sound card which I have the speakers plugged into which works fine if I plug anything else into it, so I know that that isnt the problem. Any suggestions please?

Definitely need more info - such as type of amplifier or receiver, how many speakers you are running, whether the subwoofer is powered or not.
As a simple test procedure: Disconnect all speakers and plug in a pair of headphones. Get a strong audio signal? Good, move on. No signal or week signal, you have an amplifier issue before the audio even gets to the speakers.
Next: Disconnect all speakers, turn the volume down, and connect one speaker to the left output channel. Slowly increase the volume. If that works, do the same on the right channel. Everything OK? You're putting out enough gain on both channels. Sometimes one channel goes bad. You can still listen to your sound in mono moder, or drive two speakers from the single working output. Not stereo, but dual mono. Move on.
Connect left and right speakers but not the subwoofer. Repeat the test. Whatever is left is probably the problem. If the subwoofer is powered, check the power supply or incoming voltage. If the other speakers are driven off the subwoofer or powered from there, that's likely the problem.
the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit
Unplug the speaker plug and the power plug. Let it sit for a minute. Plug the speakers in and then the power and try again. Hope this helps.I have seen this many times and this is usually the solution.
Having some trouble finding any info online about them. Did they have a large power pack that plugged into the wall? If so, there might be some information either right around where they plugged in (im assuming on the sub) or possibly on the product info sticker on the speaker. Make sure if its a round plug in that you look for the tip information (whether if is a positive tip or negative). You might be better off buying a new set, depending on the price of a new adapter, compared to the price of a new set. Let me know if this helps.
First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be. It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine. Let me know how it goes.
