Question about Ozaki DT-500 3-Piece Speaker System w/Subwoofer&Wired Remote (Silver) Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I don't have a speaker connector on my computer!

I just had a new computer built for me by a local tech. I just realized that I don't have anywhere to plug in my speakers. My tech is out of town for two weeks. Anyone know what I can do to get some sound. I do videos for a living, and it is hard to do my job without music. I'm using my old computer in the meantime, but it is soooo slow.

Thanks!

I assume this is a Windows based machine. And the reality is that your tech didn't put a sound card in it or you would have a way to connect sound. There is a good possiblity that he did and it has a unique arcithecure to it that isn't the norm, which means you would need to feel with your hands for any doors that slide open to reveal a mini (head phone) or RCA jacks ( the ones that are usually on the back of a DVD player for audio) then you would just need to plug your speakers in to that jack. If there is none, you are out of luck and need to wait for him or take it into a Fry's or some other local computer shop to have them install a card for you ( i assume if you had someone else build it for you, your not the kind to open it and install one yourself).

I have old Boston BA735 digital speakers that I am trying to get to work with a new HP PC. Do I need drivers? There are 6 places to plug in speaker cables on the back of the PC. Which ones do I use?


Many of the new sound cards and especially sound cards on OEM do not support digital speakers without buying additional connectors. (Not sure why. I have these same great speakers for years and they are wonderful.
- Check if your sound card ha an SPDIF connection option. - Check the speakers in the device manager to see if you can toggle the "digital" option. - I also have read that some versions of the BA 735 have an analog option on the back of the subwoofer if you need to bypass digital. (mine don't, so I don't know if this is accurate)

I have new computer. My Yamaha speakers Model YST-M7 are older. There is power to the speakers but no sound is coming out. Not sure which hole to plug them into. My choices are: rear l/r surround...


Use the "line-out" connector (usually it's light green in color), and if there is an audio control panel application, make sure the sound circuitry is set for "two-channel" or regular stereo speaker operation. It can be confusing on newer computers which have surround-sound capability built in. Depending on how you set up the sound, the jacks can have different functions. But the line-out jack is what you'll use with basic speakers such as yours.

I have an acer cpu connected to my hp monitor with built in speakers...but I have no sound?


That is a common problem. You need to purchase some new speakers from your local Radio Shack or computer store.Plug them into your cpu. Very cheap fix about $10. The mix and match connection of the HP and Acer never seems to work. The HP monitor will work with the Hp computers but not others.

I have logitech speakers for my computer. I need a new cable that goes from the bottom of the bass speaker to the two smaller speakers. A couple of the pins are broken on the plug that plugs into the bass...


logitech rarely has replacement parts. and for this model is not for the u.s. distribution so youcan not even call u.s tech support for help. try ebay or craiglist. if the connector is not proprietary you might be able to get a electronic repair shop to repin the connector.

Speakers crackling and making a 'clicking' sound when volume high


The cable you are using to connect to the speakers could be duff or the connectors could just be dirty.  clean the connectors and push it in and out of the socket repeadedly to ensure you have a good connection.  Or you could try a different cable.

I had the same problem. After numerous calls to Altec Lansing they sent me out a new one. The new one doesn't have the same connector on it. I called tech support only to hear that they discontinued the 621 and don't make parts for it. Sorry, you are probably out of luck.
