Question about Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.

I have the BA735 connected to a Creative SB Audigy sound card. Cable has mini-jack at computer end and RCA like phone plug at speaker end. No sound with BA digital speakers, but sound card works fine with analog speakers. How can you diagnose if problem is with sound card or with speakers not converting output from the sound card?

    The BA735 only accepts a digital in signal and would not work on an analog output on the sound card so it is not possible to substitute the digital BA735 and another set of analog speaker to isolate the problem. The only real solution seems to be to find someone I know that might have a computer with a sound card that has a digital signal output and see if my speakers work. I can think of no stand alone solution to test the BA735 (digital) speakers.

This should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.

I had a similar problem with a used set of BA735 speakers hooked to my Mac. I plugged a stereo 1/8" cable into the analog port on the back of the subwoofer. Presto! My speakers worked.

The solution is that you cannot use those speakers on a system that does not support digital only.. because the speakers are strictly digital which cuts down the possibilities immensly.

Not enough jack


You need to buy an external sound card, without which you will not be able to get much from your speakers. It will not produce surround sound.

The sound card will give you required jacks and will produce real good sound. You may try audigy cards from creative.

Connecting BA735 digital 3.5mm plug with S/PDIF coax jack


The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.

Boston Acoustic BA735 wont play on my computer


The cable with 2 rings is stereo, a single ring is mono, you have to make sure that you are using the right cable/speaker combo. The speaker output is usually lime green, hope this helps, more info perhaps?

Boston Acoustics Digital BA735 Speakers with no Analog input.


I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.

I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.

To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.

I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

Need a wiring diagram for connecting KOSS HD 50 COmputer speakers


Hello there! lellya
First,
1) you have to tell , what kind of sound card you got? on board audio? A7, or Creative Audigy? 5.1 or regular.
2) then, you have to connect one speaker to the other, one two way connector cable, for the 2 KOSS speakers.
3) another cable that goes in back of your koss and from the out of your KOSS Speakers to the input of your sound card, at back of your PC, this input is your sound card jack.
4) its supose to work like so.
good luck
