Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

Open Question

Connect x-540 to ipod and laptop

We are able to get some sound by using 2 (orange & green) plugs into one hole (using single reducer), but black one dangles along side. Tried with matrix button selected and not.

Result is not all speakers produce sound.

How do we get maximum use of this system using all 3 plugs with devices that only have one hole?

Is there a component we can purchase, or should we exchange this 5.1 system for a system with fewer speakers/plugs?

SOURCE: Connect DVD Player to logitech X 540 Surround System

Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

Hi .. i have just bought a logitech x 530 speaker and only 2 of the speaker parts work .. can you please give me some solution advice?


Hi names Rui i like to help you by giving you step by step instruction in propely hocking up your logitech speakers:

Instructions

1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.

2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.

3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.

4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.

5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.

6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.

7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.

8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.

9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.

10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...

hope this will help you solve your problem.

I got a new motherboard, and the back only has a pink, green, and blue color for the jacks. However, these logitech speakers have a green, pink, orange, and black. i have the green and pink in and my...


PINK -- if you have a microphone, connect it here

GREEN -- if you have a headset, or you have external speakers, connect it here,
to get 2-channel stereo output ("left" and "right").

BLUE -- if you have an iPod (or iPod Touch), or audio-cassette player, and you want to feed the "audio-output" from those devices into a program that will record the sound on the "line-input" port on your computer, then you need to connect this port.

Since your new motherboard does not support 5.1 audio-output, you need to purchase a sound-card that has GREEN and PINK and ORANGE and BLACK sockets, so that you can get sound into the "middle" and "back-left" and "back-right" speakers.

Or, just connect the GREEN, to use your speakers in two-channel mode.

You'll also need to access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, to download the correct device-drivers for the audio-hardware embedded onto the new motherboard, in order to get _ANY_ output out of your sound-card.

How does Logitech X-540 speakers connect to a laptop?


You connect the green cable from the subs (the green one of the three, the other two being black and yellow) to where your headphones or speakers go into your laptop. Then you make sure the matrix button is activated on the x-540. This will make sound come from all of the speakers and it will use the sub, i.e. virtual surround sound.

To do it properly without using the matrix mode and trying to enable actual surrond sound (with centre satellie being mostly vocal, front two being instrumental/music, and back two being sound effects) then you need to buy an external sound card for your laptop that supports 5.1. I'd recommend the creative x-fi external usb, but only if you have xp. If you have vista, forget about getting an external sound card that supports real 5.1 for now because there aren't really any good and truly compatible ones.

No sound


Hi,

To my knowledge, a Logitech X-540 does not need a driver to operate. However, it is the sound card in the PC that would need drivers. Further, the sound card should be capable of 5.1 surround sound system and should have three (3) sound output which includes. All of these would have individual jacks to match the different plugs of the X-540 (green, black and orange plugs). The X-540 in turn would output the 3 inputs to front pair, rear pair, center and sub woofer. The green goes to the front L/R, the black to the rear L/R and the orange to the center/sub.

Perhaps you can post back with the brand/model of your PC , and your soundcard or motherboard. Knowing your OS would also be helpful.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
