    My Centre and rear speakers aren't working on the logitech x-540. In matrix mode i get the rear speakers working so I know they aren't broken, but the centre speaker won't work ever. I tested all of them and know that the centre speaker and the others aren't broken though.

The system comes with l remote which provides controls for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have the ability to do so.
I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting

Logitech X-540 limited sound


why dont you have them all hooked up? I have the same speakers but I the model that only has 2 speakers. Try pluging your audio cable in the front where you would plug head phones in. Assuming that this is a desktop.

Can I have my Logitech X540 Speaker system thru my tv


HERE is a link to the Z-540 manual. It should help. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to the "line out" jack on your TV. Do NOT use the black or orange plugs. WIth a 2 channel card like your TV's you will not get sound from the rear speakers unless you enable matrix mode through the remote.

Hope that helps!
