Trying to connect BA735 speakers to a MacBook? No sound? Are they compatible?


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

Can i use my boston 5.1 speakers with a powered sub with my new computer system.it used soundblaster software?


The speakers themselves don't care what you have them connected to. They just take an audio input from the computer, which is a function of the computer's sound card and drivers. As long as the computer hardware is working properly, the speakers will too.

There is one possible problem, though. If these speakers came with your computer as part of a Gateway system package several years ago, they may be a digital-input version only. Gateway supplied these speakers and a Creative Soundblaster card that had a digital output was installed in the computer. The way to tell on your speakers is to look at the plug on the end of the cable. Which of the two below looks like yours?

pgh_pa_guy_6.jpg

If it's the one on the left, you can use the speakers with any analog sound source (computer, iPod, etc.). But if looks like the one on the right (a mono plug), you have the digital speakers. Unless the sound card in your new computer has digital output available, the speakers won't work. In the past, I was able to put the original sound card and drivers into someone's new computer and it worked, but the original software is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7.

Hope this helps you get it figured out. Thanks for using Fixya!

Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital BA735 speakers using XP. Upgrade computer to a N68PV-GS motherboard and have analog output for the speakers. How to I get the old speakers to work?


You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

I recenttely hooked up my old gateway compute with the boston speakers and cannot get them to work.. is there some software i need to reinstall to get them working?


on your gateway computer, check to see if you have the volume icon in the bottom right hand corner. If you do then raise the volume up.

If you don't see an icon then that means the sound card drivers are not installed and they need to be to get sound going thru the speakers.

www.gateway.com and go to there support section to get the sound card drivers. I would go there and download the sound card drivers for your computer and then just to make sure you have the speakers hooked up properly go read the manual for the speakers located here:

http://www.bostonacoustics.com/Assets/pdf/manuals/735setup.pdf

Make sure you have adobe reader installed to read the manual.

If you install the sound card drivers and the speakers are hooked up right and your still not getting sound, then that means either the sound card is bad or the onboard sound chip on the motherboard is bad.

Gateway Computer 710X Speakers are crackling/popping


It sounds as if the card itself may be physically bad. or you may have a microphone connected/something in your mic jack and you are picking up noise.
