Question about Boston Acoustics MicroMedia Computer Speakers

Why won't my speakers work??

I got these speakers as a gift. No instructions. I'm not sure if I have all the wires or they are not hooked up properly. Does the woofer(bass) need a power cord?? They don't work, I tried through the troubleshooting but no luck. Any help would be great. Forrest

I've hooked up all the speakers. NOTE: I didn't read the instructions, as they are lost and I recently moved. I'm sure everything is right, I've read on here about this problem. I have the pea-green,...


Lime green (pea-green) is front speakers.
Orange is for center speakers and sub-woofer.
Black is for rear speakers.

Pink is for microphone in.
Blue is for line in (MIDI or similar).

My Right port isnt working and i have no idea about these knds of things

The way computer speakers are hooked up, is you take your 1/4" main jack from the power speaker, and plug it in to your computer's adio out jack. Then you have to hook up the other speaker's 1/4" plug to a jack in the back of the power speaker (by power speaker, I mean the speaker that has the volume adjustment and on/off switch). Plug the power speaker's power supply in to the wall outlet, turn it on, adj the volume, and you should be in business. If the other speaker isn't working, it might have a pinched speaker wire or another problem may exist, but usually it's either a pinched wire or incorrect hookup.
Oh, one more thing to check, make sure you hook the other speaker to the right jack on the power speaker. There are two jacks on the power speaker, and one is for the left or right speaker only. Good luck, and hope this helps.

I need an instruction manual to hook the speakers to my computer

There are no manuals for speakers. Speaker wires are color coded. Computer sound cards are likewise color coded.
the light green sound card mini plug port is where the green speaker wire is plugged in.
Pink is for microphone.
Black and orange sound card ports are for additional speakers.

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

I hav the x530 but the large speaker is not working. there is n bass and if you wiggle the cord in back of it, it comes on for a second but not to the extent when i first got it

There possibly could be an open in the speaker wire. Most speaker wire is braided wire (multiple wires wound together inside of insulated outer jacket) and the wires could be broken inside of the jacket. Take another wire from another speaker and hook it up to the big speaker (which sounds like a subwoofer) to see if you get anything out of it. You will not get the bass because it is a different channel. If it works, then your problem is the wire and should be replaced. If you have the same sort of problem after hooking up the other wire, the may be a problem with the connection on the sub woofer itself. Take a closer look at the connections on the sub woofer and make sure your connections are stripped long enough (not too long) to make a proper connection. I hope this helps.

No sound from speakers

If you buy a 1/8 - 1/8 male on each end of cord and plug it into your stereo headset plug on your computer (probably the front of tower) and the other end to the analog in on the back of your ba735 will work great....... Good Luck,
