Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers
I do not want to hook the system to my computer but would rather have it hooked to my DVD or big screen TV. The ends of the cables are not the correct kind to fit in the DVD or TV. Can I purchase a cable to convert the cable to fit?
You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
