Need hookup diagram for Altec Lansing ACS 52 speaker set.

The set I have came with a computer I bought--it had been unhooked and I can't figure out how to hook it up.

The set has 4 speakers plus a bass (woofer).

I tried the company and they say they don't support that model any longer.--some support!

Ther is a popping sound on my speakers that does not change with the setting of the volume level. It sounds like discharge noise and is constantly the same level. Is there anywhere I can get a schematic...


what you are geting is called "Line feed" sound, happens then the boardboard is not grounded right on the motherboard inside your computer. It's a screw loose next to the sound card/hub. Also might be other wires touching in the back of your computer next to the, line in audio jack.

Wish you the best of luck

P.S. you sound you hear will also be heard on other sets of speakers.

Permit Fix: Buy a sound card like this and have it installed.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

I have 7.1 speakers attached to my receiver, I am using 16 guage wiring and yet I still find the sound in some movies is very inaudible..almost tinny unless I change the audio to 7 channel stereo. My two...


There are a multitude of user settings that can affect the apparent loss of bass you describe. Since you mention it is relevant to a soundfield choice that sort of eliminates hardware problems.

Find the SET Menu and set everything under SOUND according to your actual speaker configuration. For the purposes of set up, consider the word LARGE to mean "CAN handle substantial low bass" and SMALL to mean "would distort or be destroyed by substantial low bass".

Under LFE/Bass Out, the Front/Both setting addresses the sharing (or not) of Low Frequencies with Large Front speakers. I recommend BOTH if your front speakers have large woofers or are otherwise bass-capable (since physical size isn't everything).

Run through the speaker Distance and Level adjustments. The LFE/Level will have a huge effect on perceived bass so check it out.

Check the Dynamic Range. It's vague about what optimim is, but avoid using MIN. I'd try MAX or STD for expected loud listening.

Run Low Freq Test to match the sub to your other speakers.

There are lots of opportunities in this beast for MALadjustment. It's your responsibility to understand the settings you select.

Hello i just recently bought alpine speakers for my eclipse 2003


mostly because the subs in the back are probley using more amps than the ones in the front in the front should be used mostly for vocals and your bass in the trun so maybe trying to unhook the ones in the front from the sub and just leave then hooked up to the cd player where you can hear the vocals really good and leave your subs in the back hooked up to the amp
