You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.
The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.
Depends on the complexity of your home theater system, but if you are just wanting to get sound from your tv to a generic souround sound, this is very simple. On the back of your tv, there is a audio output with 2 rca connectors. One is white and one is red. Also on the back of the sound system is the same colored inputs. Get the needed cable to connect the 2. You should have surround sound. Given you tv doesnt have audio outputs, your media player ( dvd, vcr, blue ray, sattelite) should have an audio output. Connect the electronic the same way as stated above.
Best Buy replaced them with a lower watage model, mine were the NS-3099 model 40 watage, that Best Buy was out of so they traded mine for the NS-3006 model 14 watage. Believe it or not the 3006 was $10 more and sounded like **** on my system. I further read the specs to realize the difference. I drove back up to Best Buy and replaced with a Logitech system of 50 watage for $20 more. Although these do sound better than the 3006, they are in my opinion not as clear as my $30 Insignia 3099 model. None of this makes sense to me. All I can deduct is that Best Buy wanted folks to buy their system at a cheaper price to get a taste of what they can do, and then screw you into buying something else when they falter. And I had limited choice on the shelf. There you go. Thanks for your reply just the same. Terry
On the logitech speakers, connect all the colored cables to their coordinating colors on the back of the subwoofer EXCEPT the green one..you need the special Y connector that came with the speakers. (the red, white and green little one). Connect one end of the green cable to the subwoofer, connect the other end to the Y connector. Now you just need to correct the red and white cables from your tv or dvd player into those red and white cables and MWAH!!
Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output
You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue -
z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd.
If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible.
"Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier.
Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier."
Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
