Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Something isn't right

I bought the Z-5500 speakers... problem.... my sound card is a soundblaster x-fi xtreme gamer... the jacks you plug into from the back of the speakers has the three colors and my sound card only has the green one. I only get sound from the front left and right. after messing with the control unit and switching it to music I get sound out of everything but it isn't true surround sound. Another wierd thing is when I watch movies I hear the background noises and explosions but when people talk I can't hear them... I think that is very odd help anyone?

You have a 2.1 sound card. (Wont work) You need at least a 5.1 sound card. Go to Tiger Direct and they sell lots of good 5.1 sound cards. Excellent custormer service. Best Buy has sound cards also. I love logitec speakers, sounds as good as my 700 watts system. I use ATI sound cards.

    Turtle Beach are really good sound cards. I have use them several time and never no trouble.

  • butch welch Oct 21, 2008

    Right, Just want to add is that I have used several Turtle Beach sound cards, with ATI vidio cards with really good results. You get tons of software with both companys free with the product. Check out tiger Direct. I feel they have the best service of all. I have built several gaming computers using Tiger Direct and have never had a problem, even when the problem was my fault.

Want to connect JBL platunum series speakers to Dell Inspiron 560 with Windows 7. There is no sound coming from theses speakers on this system. They worked with HP compac.


Hello there,

here is the sound card for the DELL
Sound Card Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio up to Creative SoundBlaster® X-Fi Xtreme Audio (D)†

that means you have a sound card and the port should be in the back and should be green.

Audio front panel - one headphone and one
microphone connector

This is for a headset .


Here is what i would try make sure the speakers are powering by turning on the right speaker the LED should light up if it is then it has power, Next i would try the back of the PC speaker port , if you have everything connected correctly we move onto the next step.

Ok go to
Control panel
Hardware and sound
then click on the green sound link that should pop up a window to configure the speakers, you should see the devices in the list and be able to configure them if you do not let me know and i can help you with the next step.

Directing Creative Soundblaster X-Fi synths to SPDIF


I have researched this same problem with my SB X-FI Fatality Gamer Edition and the answer I came up with is that you cannot output sound ( at least not 5.1 surround sound ) through the SPDIF out. Supposedly, this port is used for " some other reason " that I could never clarify. The only solution I ever uncovered was to buy the breakout box for the sound card.

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.

Well you have some options, you can either live with 2 speakers and change the settings back to default. Im assuming the colors you have are orange black and green. black= the surround sound speakers. orange= center and subwoofer. green=right left front

Now if u want true surround sound then you need to buy a new card that had all the ports for your speakers.

Driver


there are no drivers for the speakers, you need an audio driver installed for you sound card.

http://support.dell.com

Your system will either have an on-board sound card (Sigmatel normally) or a soundblaster expansion audio card. (If the audio jacks are in an expansion slot below the video card, then you have a soundblaster.

Soundblaster drivers are found at http://www.creative.com
