I think it it the x540 system My sound card won't support the additional jack plug. It only has 2 plugs connection sites and so 2 of my speakers don't play any sounds. What is the best sound card to purchase to support this speaker system and whom do I order it from online?

I believe you have something connected wrg since your pc only requires one jack from sound card. to you subwoofer then its seperated to he others. read the book on *********** board to see if you can change your options on the sound configuration.

I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?


Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

How do I connect a Logitech z506 surround sound system to an LG 50LS4000 TV


It will never fit because that surround system was made for an audio card for desktop computer. Green is main, tan is surround and black is bass or woofer. There hasn't being any adapter yet for this type of configuration, sorry.

There is a knocking noise in two speakers now no volume


Best guess - you have blown what are called the "electronic crossovers". These distribute power to the different speakers within the enclosure, tweeters, midrange, and woofers. The truth is simple: Logitech speakers are made of junk. Sorry, but it's true. The safest thing that you can do is get amplified speakers, that is the power amp is built into the speaker enclosure and run it out through the headphone jack. If you go to eBay you can get a pair of M-Audio AV-40s for $145 and free shipping. I've owned these for four years and I am VERY FUSSY about sound quality. If you do that you'll have to connect the left speaker to the right speaker with coaxial cable. Don't skimp on this. I bought a six foot length of 8-gauge coax for about $10. You would probably be happy with 10 gauge and it would be a lot easier to work with. You're also going to have to buy a headphone jack to RCA stereo connector. Get a Bose - I did! For a little less than $200 you'll have a system that will blow your mind!!

On AUX connection not all the speakers work


Below is a review of the T7900 which I've copied to provide info on the system setup. For Surround Sound to work properly,Computer Sound Cards and Home Theater receivers will have speaker outputs for front, rear, side, subwoofer speakers.

"This is a set of 7.1 speakers designed to be connected to your PC's
sound card. 7.1 means that you get 7 speakers with the .1 referring to the sub woofer which generates the bass. The sub woofer is the large box that connects to the mains and is designed to be kept out of sight under your desk. The speakers are relative small which allows you to have three on your desk and the other four discretely placed around the room. Finding some where to put the side speakers can be a pain though however you don't have to use them all. The unit has a switch on the back which allows you to either use 5, 6 or 7 speakers - this is useful as gives more flexibility dependant on the shape of you room. The number of speakers does mean running lots of cables around the room and this is the main disadvantage. Although the cables are fairly thin and can be tacked to the wall (I have hidden them under the carpet though). The unit connects to the three outputs on your sound card. The leads are colour coded but its worth sticking labels on them to correspond to the connectors on the sound card as if you ever unplug them it can be a pain to get them back in the right order. The sound quality is excellent especially in a smaller room - the bass in particular can be very powerful (this can be controlled via the wired remote). It works better for games than movies though but overall you are unlikely to get better sound quality for the money. Highly recommend."

When I do a noise test I get no sound out of the woofer. I am getting no bass from the woofer


These are "decent" quality 5.1 speakers, usually without any trouble.

Now, to your question, you will not have 5.1 "surround sound" effect with standard sound card, standard sound card will provide only three speakers sound, rear speakers will not connect but bass should be hear. Please switvh power off to the speakers and disconnect all cables from spaekers and connect them for best quality as follows:

1. Audio from PC, orange, green and black connecting to front right speaker.
2. DB15 (D-SUB) connecting to subwoofer, subwoofer is serving as mixer, power board, amplifier and connection box, control pod is just cable connection to it
3. Connect all cables to they respective speakers

Establish location of the speakers, from experience, in ideal world:

1. Sub should be on about your knee level or below, about twice your hight from you.
2. Front centre speaker should be about some distance as sub or bit closer on front and slightly above your head.
3. Front left and right speakers should be at about 45degree from your axis, at distance of about 1.5 your hight and on the level of your head or slightly below.
4. Rear left and right speakers should be located similiary to front speakers, on they level or slightly above them, again, about 45degree from your axis.

Location of the speakers is more actually important than it is assumed, total sound immersion is not possible without proper speakers installation. Head in these instruction meant a location of your head while you are listening to your music or recording not while you are standing.

In reality... hang them higher than your head in four corners of your room, front centre higher than sides, woofer lower than sides and below front centre, if they interfere with each other - increase the distance. I hate reality...

After speakers are connected:
1. Plug power cord in,
2. Turn all sounds totally down, including subwoofer
3. Increase sound on PC to maximum, let play any known to you music, tufftuff or bach, whatever, do not bother with metallica as you cannot discredit on it correct levels.
4. Increase subwoofer volume, holding one hand on the front of the grill till you get some vibration from it
5. Increase sound on centre speaker, then on sides front speakers till you achieve equality of the sound
6. Decrease sound volume on your PC to about 60% - 70%
7. Increse subwoofer volume till you feel sound on your hand in front of the speaker.
8. Increase sound volume on front/rear speakers as required.

Hope that short intro solved all your speaker problems, enjoy! if you require any additional help, do not hesitate to answer to this post with request.

Question on allowable use


Hi sheawm. You can use your speakers as long they have the mini-plug connector such as ipods, blackberrys, laptops, desktops, etc. so it won´t matter. I hope this helps.
