Question about Spherex Xbox 5.1 Surround Sound System Computer Speakers

1 Answer

DVDs are ridiculously loud

I have my xbox plugged in with the digital and the analog connectors. When I put in a DVD and attempt to play it using either the standard xbox dash or XBMC it is ridiculously loud. Turning the Spherex volume all the way down has no effect. I thought it was the digital in so I unplugged the optical connector and switched to analog. No effect. I don't know of any way to adjust the volume in the xbox dash.

My speakers will not play on my computer


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

Spherex Xbox 5.1 Surround suound..USB does not work


If the xbox is not able to recognise the usb, it is most likely that the product is not compatible with the xbox i would look for an adapter which would take the usb connection to the xbox's analog connection, or if your speakers have a stero 2.5 connection then you can easily find an adapter to connect to the xbox's analog connection in the back, the analog connection is the red and white ports at the back!.

I have a Dell Inspiron 630m computer with these speakers


Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Use the dongle that came with your Inspiron. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.

I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.

I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.

To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.

I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Some Dell computers come with a proprietary s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers. If not then you can buy a cheap device that can give you digital out unless you want to mess with third party drivers and enable digital out over SPDIF on your computer.

Setup


Good Morning:


Hope that you are wellJ

Connecting the speakers correctly seems to be the biggest issue.

Try this diagram: http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2913&p_created=1125714076&p_sid=gel419fj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9OCw4JnBfcHJvZHM9ODQ0LDE3LDY0MCZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9My42NDAmcF9jdj0mcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1OTyBTT1VORA**&p_li=&p_topview=1

Be sure that you are not set to stereo

You must have at least a 6 channel card.

Also:

After verifying that the connections are made correctly, the sound card needs to be checked to make sure it is setup correctly. There are many sound card manufacturers so we cannot possibly cover every make and model. We recommend contacting the manufacturer of the sound card to make sure the sound card is setup correctly for use with analog 5.1 speaker systems.

When a software DVD player is being used to watch a DVD, the audio output needs to be set to surround sound mode. Please refer to the user manual for the software DVD player to check the settings.
Many DVDs have more than 1 sound format available. Just as the sound card and the software DVD player, the DVD itself has to be set to the correct sound format.

Finally you can test to see if the speakers are working correctly by plugging the front channel cable coming from the sound card to the rear channel connector on the subwoofer. If sound comes out of the rear speakers, then there is no problem with the speakers. The problem could be with the software DVD player, or the audio setting on the DVD.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful morning.

Rear Speakers do not sound, other 2 do, and boofer.


There are several reasons why there is no sound coming from the rear speakers.
  • Improper connection of the signal cable is a possible reason why there is no sound coming from the rear speakers.

7949.jpgGreen connector is for the front left and right channel. Black connector is for the rear left and right channel. Orange connector is for the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) subwoofer and the center channel.

The connectors for the Logitech products are color coded as explained. The connectors on the sound card may not be color coded or a different color coding maybe used depending on the manufacturer of the sound card. Check the manual for the sound card to make sure the correct connector is connected from the Logitech speaker to the sound card.
