Question about Logitech Z-540 Speaker

Rear left speaker not playing

Hi, my rear left speaker stopped playing, but the speaker itself is all right, it works when plugged into another output from subwoofer, and also the output from soundcard is good because my headphones work fine when plugged instead of rear speakers. So I'd like to know how can I check the wires between soundcard and subwoofer? I didn't figure out how to dismantle the speakers, they look like they're made of one piece of plastic.

Re: Rear left speaker not playing

If the speaker itself is working then the problem will most likely be the connection point where the speaker plugs into. If you dont know how to check for this problem, i dont really want to tell you just in case you hurt yourself. Take it to a shop and have it looked at by someone thats knows what there looking for.

Hi i, recently bought new philips hts 3510 but it aint having enough sound in both right and left rear speakers when comparing to front speakers which means only very low sound as well as effect in rear...

I can't find the manual. Hopefully you have it and can follow the setup procedures. These things aren't plug and play and we can't assume you have done so.

Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...

In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

Left Speaker Stopped Working

I think I had a similar problem. My speakers were brand new and after a while I lost my front left and rear left speaker. I'm not sure about you guys but after fiddling around with the settings it worked after I changed the "S/PDIFoutput sample rate" from 48 to 96 khz. I have no clue what I did, but it worked for me. I am running logitech something or rather speakers with VIA HD audio deck drivers

Connecting Durabrand SA51AR to computer

Each "red and white" represent a stereo pair (Right and Left respectively. What type of connectors are on the SA51AR? I will guess TS (tip sleeve) or Phono for the sake of this answer.

It sounds as if the PC's outputs are stereo TRS (tip, ring sleeve) 1/8" female connectors, which is normal. TRS connectors carry both the Left and Right signals whereas Phono and TS only carry one signal each.

Radio Shack has converters which will allow you to plug a "red and white" connector in one end (either TS or Phono) and will provide a TRS output on the other which will plug into your PC's sound outputs. That way, the Red/White pair for "Side Speakers" (front L/R) can plug into the one grey jack and the Rear (rear L/R) can plug into the black-jack, etc.

4 speakers with games

For the rear surround speakers to work, the sound must be encoded in surround sound, and most games, if any, are not. The amp doesn't 'see' and information encoded in the sound signal for the rear speakers, therefore you get no sound.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

Both rear speakers on my z540 system play only the left side rear

Hmmm, this sounds like either a driver issue, or a card/compatibility issue. you might try reverting to old drivers(last resort), making shure you have 4.1 enabled in sound control pannel(do this first), triple checking connections/connectors on both the speakers and the card(remember, you only have 5 speakers, not 8) and if you have the headphone-type phone plug for your speakers, you might try making shure that they are compatible with the jacks on your card, although, I would have to know more about your setup to be completely shure.
