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.

Since Logitec Z-5500 is a 5.1 Speaker System you need to purchase a Sound Card to be able to connect it with your pc. You can get a Sound card starting with a price tag of 20 Pounds.
Hope this will help you solve your problem Best Regards NextDoorNerd

Sound only comes out of 2 out of 5 speakers. I've had a previous set of these and they also had the same problem.


Do all of the speakers plug into the bass, then from the bass to the computer? Seems like the multimedia controller you have right now is either not working or was never meant for that many computer speakers. In this case, you might want to get a sound card. Sound cards will let you plug the sets of speakers (Front, Rear, Sides, etc.) into each of the inputs on the sound cards. The jacks and inputs will be colour coated so you know which one to plug into which one.

How to hook up Philips mms 321 to a laptop via usb


Hi,

I don't know of any interface that goes from speaker wires to USB. I think that we should go another way. You know soundblaster has many cards that will let you hook those speakers right up and its a very easy installation. I myself have Bose speakers hooked up to my soundblaster card and its wonderful. You can peruse the soundblaster cards here.
Its really easy to do and it will allow you to have great sound that you can configure for very high quality stereo.

I hope this helps. please remember to rate me.

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

Front and rear speakers do not work


Hi,

My connection dropped for a second and lost you on the live session. Thereafter I keep on getting errors.

In any case, have you tried:
1. disabling the built-in sound in your CMOS/BIOS?
2. Verify that your Creative drivers are all installed correctly with no red or yellow marks in your Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers;
3. Are all the connectors/plugs wired to the right jacks. Iknow the sub operates wirelessly but all others are still wired.

Post back pls how things are so we can figure other things out.

Good luck and kind regards.
