BA7500g speakers won't work with my mac

My speakers don't work with my new iMac, and I want to know if I simply need to download something, or if i'm not setting it up correctly within the mac...because the speakers are functional, i've tested them time and again.

I have the same problem except i'm using a macbook and i'm trying to connect the speakers. My macbok accommodates optical digital audio output, but you have to buy a  a standard toslink cable with a toslink mini-plug adapter.  Since the speaker input is a digital coaxial (not fiber, optical) you have to buy a Digital Fiber Optical (Toslink) to Digital Coaxial (S/PDIF) Converter.  good luck. hope this helps

Boston BA7500G Speakers with no sound.


Well we have eliminated the laptop as a problem,.. that is very good. As far as what the problem with your BA unit is,.. we only know that it does not function with an external device (laptop and mp3 player). you already mentioned that a sound test from the unit plays through all the speakers,. right? With that lets start with the most basic item that will cause this problem,.. the cable that comes from the BA unit and plugs into the laptop or mp3 player. Is the cable plugged into the right place on the BA unit? Does the cable disconnect from the the BA unit? if so, do both ends of the cable look the same or is there 2 ends (maybe red and white) that plug into the BA unit? Please let me know when you can and we can continue troubleshooting this.

Need to know how to use Apple Pro Speakers with Apple iMac Comp.


Does your iMac have a headphone jack, this is an output source that can be used to input to other amplified sources. I'm not sure what type of connector that is on your Pro speakers but if it has a universal jack then plug this in the headphone jack on your computer.

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?


Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

My BA7500g digital speakers don't work with my iMac


They only work for a digital signal. Mac's like nearly all other normal speaker outputs, put out an analog signal. So they'll work with a computer that puts out a digital signal.

How to hook up a boston acoustic ba7500g speaker


you can connect the BA7500G speakers to a regular digital coaxial output by using a cable that has an RCA plug on one end and a stereo minijack on the other. However, the pole of the RCA must connect to the tip of the stereo minijack and the shield of the RCA must connect to the middle ring on the stereo minijack. Also set your soundcard to output at 16bit and 48khz.
