Go to Control Panel, open device manager, and and check for any yellow checks for your sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external--be sure your laptop speakers are plugged in.

My Soundsticks suddenly produced no sound at all. I did all the obvious things to no effect. I then went to "System Preferences" on my Macbook Pro, clicked on "Sound" under the Hardware category and found that my "Output Volume" had the Mute box checked. I unchecked it and the problem vanished. I have NO idea how the box got checked since I didn't do it and the speakers worked fine until today.....

I have a similar problem, the satellites can't play as loud as they used to.

Should there be a blue light in the satellites too, just as the subwoofer?

Try adjusting the 2 side speakers stands, I found that I had a very low level of sound but as soon as I discovered that the base's tilted the sound improved. (like on the picture on the box) Also in I tunes, try selecting 'get info' in 'file', then select the volume option and move to 100% and select the relevant pre set graphic equaliser eg. classical. This sounded great to me but my side speakers are not lighting up? Any suggestions appreciated?

Majooloo
ps. I have a mac book!

My soundsticks are not playing sound from youtube just sound from my windows sound anyone know why ?

Posted on Dec 25, 2012

This was me just being an idiot....i thought I had the same problem after just moving my speakers around on the desk, i thought I had jarred a lead or something.
I didn't even know that these speakers had touch sensitive volume control on the right satellite! Little silver bits at the front. I had accidentally turned mine down. Idiot.
Hope this is of help to someone!
I felt dumb when I realised :S

My MacBook's audio still on even when harman Kardon speakers are connected to the computer.(Original version with USC connectors).


As I seem to recall the very first version was powered by the computer and as such may not be compatible with your Mac. I may be thinking of Apple's Clear speakers though? Do your HK Soundsticks have a power adapter or AC cord?

How can I get my Harman Kardon Soundsticks 1 to work on my PC?


The USB version of the soundsticks was specifically designed for the mac and they worked just by plugging them in and then telling the system to use them instead of the analogue outputs. Unless someone has produced drivers for Windows XP for these speakers I think that you will probably not be able to use them.

WRONG IDEA, YOU CANNOT MAKE AN OUTPUT SOUND ON YOUR MP3 THROUGH USB, THE BEST THING THAT WORKS IS ... REPLACE YOUR HEADPHONE WITH A CORD [AUDIO JACK] AND CONNECT IT TO YOUR PC SOUND CARD THROUGH AUDIO INPUT HOLE. .. THIS REALLY WORKS... PLEASE VOTE FOR MY POSTING

Hi, Kazim
Firts things First:
1) check connector for 2 way sound. you can use a headphone for this.
2) you also buy Ipod dock sound speakers, there is Ihome speakers, great ones, for less than 25.00 dollars.
3) you have to see balance on those speakers.
good luck
