Sound is coming out like broken speakers when using stereo input
I'm a court reporter. The software I use has to run with stereo input. I have a separate box that a live mic plugs into, as well as a USB cable which also connects to the computer We've been able to get it to record but the sound comes out staticky and like broken speakers. When testing the sound, everything else sounds normal. The owner of the software suggested I get an external sound card, Audigy 2 ZS notebook which is discontinued. Any suggestions?

Stereo is actually two identical amplifiers which when the left and right of a stereo signal is fed into the respective inputs will reproduce the stereo sound through the left and right speakers.
Mostly there is a mono/stereo switch so if only a mono signal is available it is reproduced through both speakers.
You don't make it clear whether the playback is in mono or half a stereo?
If playback is in mono it will emerge from both speakers but the directional element will be absent. If the playback is in half a stereo the sound will emerge from one speaker only or mostly one speaker.
Most common problem is the failure of one of the amplifiers which could be electronic or the failure of any of the various switching usually used in such things.
The amplifiers can be tested by injecting a signal into each amplifier input and will be found satisfactory if the sound emerges from each speaker in turn at a similar volume.
The key to running the Bose 901s is to have the equalizer inserted into the tape monitor loop. Most 'old school' stereo receivers have tape monitor inputs. On an AV receiver, the VCR or CD analog inputs/outputs could be used but you will be limiting your listening to stereo sources. Please be aware that some AV receivers will not allow you to select different audio and video sources. The Marantz NR15xx, SRx004 receivers are pretty flexible, and allow you to pair up a component audio input with an HDMI (or other) video input. (No surround sound in this type of setup...)
Hello.... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. The reason for this is that since you have a stock stereo, the shop (or person) whom installed the amp and subs used a line out converter. What this part does is allows the connection of RCA cables to the factory head unit. Almost all bass signals are always in stereo, so since you were only hooking an amplifier for just subs, you can actually just connect to just one of the rear speakers instead of connecting to the right and left. Just makes the install a little quicker. There is nothing wrong with this as I usually do the same thing in our shop. However, if you are going to be using the balance control, then you will need to go back to the shop and have them hook the converter up in stereo (to both rear speakers). Hope this helps!
Be sure you plugged the plugs into the right ports on the back of the stereo.
From the computer: ensure you plugged the cables into the Auxilary Out, or Out jacks of the sound card.
On the stereo: ensure you plugged the cables into any open set of Auxilary In jacks.
Once you verify your cables are plugged in correctly, verify the input on the stereo is set properly. Set your stereo's source or input to "Auxilary" or "Auxilary 1 or 2." This allows the stereo to pull input from the cables running into the appropriately selected Auxilary source.
That should help hopefully.
If you still can't get sound, double check your computer's sound card settings and be sure the sound card is working properly.
When you switch your Sound Field to 2 Channel it should use all the speakers (although you'll notice it doesn't sound as loud as normal coming out of the center speaker). Auto Deco actually sounds good in this mode, in my opinion.
