Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?

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?

    Thank you for all your input! My TV is a Toshiba Model #57H83. The DVD is a COBY DVD-R1280.

    Is it better to have this hooked up to the DVD player or the TV?

    Thank you again.

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 :)

    Here is the user manual for your tv;
    http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerP...

    check page 15 on the top right - those are the connections for an un-amplified audio output signal - if you get the appropriate adaptor for these RCA plugs then your system should work fine but you will not get true surround sound - each speaker will be giving the same sound.

    In order to get true surround sound, you will need an A/V receiver or amplifier with that function which will probably come with its own speakers

    Unfortunately coby do not have a manual online for your dvd player - contact them direct if you want more info but i suspect that the tv is the best bet as described;

    Hope this helps you out :)

How to hook up my dvd player to the t.v.


Hello
You haven't given any specifications about your tV here. Anyway, you can hook up the DVD player to TV using an AV cable. The AV cable will have three cables together with two RCA connections at each end of each cable. Look at the colour of them. Usually one Red, one White and an other will be yellow. Just connect them to the sockets of both DVD and TV accordingily, and switch ON both devices, select the tV input to AV1 or AV2. If all the connections are correct, you will see the logo of Mitsubishi on TV screen. This is the picture of AV cable. OK.

The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

Connecting Panasonic DVD to TV


What kind of cables are you using to hook up the DVD to the TV? Are they they composite, component, or S-Video? What are the connectors you're plugging both ends of the cables into labeled? Are you plugging the audio cables into the TV or directly into the sound system?

Hooking DVD Player to TV


go to Wal Mart and buy a cable, its the cable with a red end an yellow end and a white end. Your TV does NOT support stereo sound, so you only need the white cable for sound, the yellow is for video.
