Connecting AVS500 to Desktop computer

There are two stereo male plugs one pale green which matches into the "audio-output" at the back of the PC. The other similar size plug is colored "Black". Where should this be inserted ? The remaining Female connectors available on my sound card are "Microphone in" and "Audio-in"

The black thing is for Audio as well and it should be going directly to the speaker. Green to the back of the PC.

Try to use this connector, so you can insert it on the same input.

Missing cord to speaker to speaker, what dose it look like?


According to the owner's manual, the 'speaker to speaker' cable is not removable. The speaker to computer cable is.
It's a 6' 3.5mm stereo to 3.5mm stereo cables such as this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Link-Depot-AUDIO-6-35MM-Link-Depot-3.5mm-Male-to-Male-Audio-Cable-6/15779608

How to connect digital home surround sound to analog tv


Analog TV will probably have at best 1 output: a headphone jack.
Most older analog TV's had no outputs at all, only inputs for vcr's.
If you are lucky enough to have an output, get a 3.5mm stereo (male) plug to red/white RCA (male) adapter cable.

Can i connect juster speakers 675 to my dell laptop?


Plug the power transformer into the bottom jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. This is the speaker with the on/off knob on the front. 2 Plug the audio cable attached to the left-channel speaker into the audio jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. The jack is immediately above the jack for the power cord. 3 Plug the audio jack attached to the back of the right-channel speaker into the headphone jack on a laptop computer (usually located along the left edge), or to the audio output jack on the back of a desktop PC. 4 Plug the speaker transformer into a surge protector and the surge protector into a wall outlet. 5 Turn the on-off and volume control knob clockwise on the front of the right-channel Inspiron speaker to activate the stereo speakers and adjust the volume.

What are the black and green plug wires on the


The green plug goes into the "Audio Out" of your soundcard. That plug recepltical is usually also green. Unless your soundcard supports 5.1 or higher the black cable wont be used, otherwise plug it into the black receptical, which should be located right next to the green one

Hello i have a medion 5.1 active sound system and i am trying to install it to an acer 5335 laptop but for some reason it will not work. i am using the usb method can you give me some advise and help...


hello Paul,

I understand that you wish to connect an laptop computer that has a standard stereo out(2 channels), earphoe jack or adio out to an active stereo system that supports the dolby 5.1 multichannel souround sound.

That is where the problem starts.The active sound system has more input channels than the two stereo channels given by the laptop, so connecting them via adaptor (audio out from laptop, earphone-like, 3.5 mm' male' jack to red and black chinch plug,'male' version to stereo L(left) and R(right) channel in at the active system) may provide you with extra stereo sound enhancement(like any other amplifier would), but no real surround sound..

To solve this, you would need a stationary desktop PC with an extra surround soundcard
that has all the multi channel out in it, as there is no chance to upgrade your laptop with such devices I am sorry to tell you that you perform an impossible task to get surround sound from your laptop.

I five klh speakers and bose amplifier, how can i connect it to my home hp pc


Perhaps you can specify which Bose amplifier you have. Presumably it drives the 5 speakers. Can you specify which computer you have? Do you have an add-on sound card? Does your computer have a 4 or more channel output? That is a different matter. Do you want the highest possible audio quality?

I'm going to assume the simplest configuration here.

1) There are two likely auxiliary input jacks for the Bose amp. One is a single 1/8" stereo jack. This jack would fit your ear bud headphones. Try this with it turned off. The other option are dual RCA jacks. These have a center opening around a cylinder about the size of a pencil. The center opening is about the size of that ear bud plug, but don't try and put it in there. The cylinder outside will have a metal ring.

2) Determine the output of your computer sound card. It is most likely a 1/8" stereo jack, so try your ear buds with it turned off. Many computers have a headphone jack and then a speaker jack. The speaker jack may be color coded green. You should be able to drive off of either of these but you will want to control the volume on your computer appropriately because the speaker output may drive too strongly for your Bose. Turn the volume up slowly.

So, then you need to go buy a cable. Here are two likely possibilities:

a) 1/8" stereo male to dual RCA male
for example: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3449316
b) 1/8" stereo male to male
for example: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102949

Need instructions to hook up Logitech X-350 systen to computer or other devise


I take it you mean a Logitech X-530? There is no X-350...
It is designed as a PC speaker system. It has three 3.5mm plugs that plug into the three matching sockets on your computer.
If you don't have three audio sockets on your computer, it is because your computer is not 5.1 compatible. Just plug the green plug into your PCs audio output.
You can buy a 5.1 audio card relatively cheaply.
To hook up other devices: Use the green 3.5mm plug - you will only get stereo, not 5.1

Connecting BA735 digital 3.5mm plug with S/PDIF coax jack


The male mono plug (from the left small speaker) should be connected into the right speaker (small speaker with controls) . After plugging the multi pin cable from the control speaker to the sub-woofer you need to plug in a signal source from your computer (or any other digital signal) into the sub-woofer. This digital input looks like an ordinary RCA plug but carries many channels of audio. That connects to the enabled digital output of your computer. Some computers output digital through a 3.5mm jack others look just like an RCA phono jack. If you are lucky some BA735 sub-woofers have a second input that is a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it will take analog audio from computer, DVD, MP3 player or the like. I have three sets of these speakers that I love because of their big volume considering such a small size.
