Question about Bose Companion III Computer Speakers
Hi, I have an iMac and I just recently installed the Companion 3 speakers. I checked every cable, double-checked with the manual to see if I did anything wrong... But everytime I try to plug the speakers in, nothing happens; as in, the sound works fine without them but when I plug them in the sound just dies. I am not using any cables that didn't come with the speakers. Please help!
It should also be noted that I plugged the system into the Headphone slot. I wondered if this was the problem but I see no other slots for speakers or sound-related hardware.
The speakers seem to be muted by default - you'll see that the LED is yellow/amber. Tap the control pod - the LED will turn green and speakers will work. I felt like such an idiot after I spent almost an hour trying to figure this out. (This feature should be more prominent in the manual.)

Use the cd that came with the speaker system to install the drivers. If it didn't come with an install disc then check the Bose website to see if they have driver downloads for this system.
