Question about Altec Lansing Computer Speakers

Open Question

Replacing the front left and right speakers of a surround system.

I have several computers set up in my home. One of which I have the Altec Lansing ACS54 Multimedia Computer Speaker System attached. It seems that the front left and right speakers have been damaged to the point that when I listen to music I get that scratchy sound that seems that they have been cracked. Other than that the rest of the system works just fine, and I do not wish to throw it out. My question to you is if it possible to simply replace the above mentioned speakers and go on my mery way? If so, as this speaker system is no longer on the market can I replace the damaged speakers with another brand?

Hello there!! jlee432
The 4.1 speakers you has, and output sound , depend on the sound card you has on your laptop. If you has inside the laptop a sound card 5.1 you whould not have problems get it sound, BUT you have to set on multimedia and sound for 4.1 according.
you only have one output sound on your laptop, so you have to use 2 speakers or buy a splitter and get 2 speakers sound.
you also, can buy a pcmcia sound card, 5.1 from creative labs, to solve this. but check if your speakers of course sound of.
good luck

SOURCE: I have Altec Lansing AVS 300 multimedia speakers with no power

Unfortunately the subwoofer supplies the power to the amp on the speakers, Once again I have the solution,
These speakers are factory molded so that the only way to open them is to break the factory seal
this can be done by sharply rapping the seam at the bottom of the speaker with a heavy screwdriver handle or something similar.
Now you need to supply power to the amp...If you do not have the subwoofer you will need a 4.5volt power supply, after removing the board from the casing find the red white and black wires connecting
the orange plug wire to it, Personally I removed the entire cord from the unit, shough you can splice in at this point if you desire.
Connect the white lead to your posative on your power supply by either splicing or soldering, connect the ground to the heat sink using the screw that is already there holding the chip to the sink. reassemble the speaker.....super glue... and you are now in business.

I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

Connect Altec Lansing ADA745 to HD TV RCA output for home theater


It won't work like this due to this being a computer only speaker system. It requires the drivers to work with a computer & a Home theater does not recognize the format. Sorry.

Altec Lansing ADA 885


Hi,

Thanks for posting direct. As you posted, the Sony XBR has only left & right (white/red) outputs whereas your Altec ADA has multiple INputs. This leaves us with no other option but to used just the green INput of the Altec as the black and the S/PDIF has nowhere to be connected to in the Sony.

You would need to use a phone stereo to RCA cable/connector as shown below. Additionally, you would have to set up your speakers as suggested here.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Compatability with TV


Hi,

Yes but you will not enjoy all the features of the Altec ADA 885 speaker system and if the TV's features will allow you.

Most TV's do not have audio out and if ever they do, chances are that it will only be left/right. Your Altec ADA 885 speaker system is capable of getting multiple inputs other than just left & right; main, front, surround & S/PDIF.

Hardware wise, the standard audio connector to the audio outputs of your PC are baby phone plugs, while those in the TV are RCA. If ever you will push through, you would need to get hold of a stereo RCA to baby phone cable. Am not sure if the yellow dongle cable that came with your package is long enough.

Additionally, here is a link to the normal installation instructions for an Altec ADA 885 speaker system should you be interested.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

How to repair atp3 altec lansing


Best bet would be to just strip the wire with a wire stripper or utility knife and twist the bare ends together to fix the connection. A little electrical tape around those wires and you should be almost good as new. Of course you might notice some difference in quality but I'm pretty sure the only way round that would be replacing the cable.

Try it out and let me know how it works out for you. If you know how to solder it might be a good idea to solder the connection as well.
