Re: I lost my adaptor for Boston BA 265 Speaker, 12 V in...
Do not worry about the milliamp. As long as you use an adapter thats the correct voltage (you stated 12 volts), the end connector fits into the speakers and the polarity is the same, then you wont have any trouble.

Hook your green and orange wires off the speakers into green and orange inputs on the back of your tower. Hook the round black cable off the a/c adaptor plug into the black input on the back of the right speaker. Then plug into an outlet. There is no software for these speakers.
Boston Acoustics Media Theater HUM. The problem may be the power source. Find another DC power source for the 12 volt. All I had was a 14.5 volt 4.5 amps source Model PS6 power source which fit the plugin socket. Absolutely no hum now and still great sound. However, I would recommend a DC 12 volt source with at least 3 amps output.
Yes, but so far I can only get the 2 front speakers and subwoofer to work.
You need a wire that converts a headphone-style jack (like the green one with the Boston speakers) into a red and white AV connection (typical CD/DVD, etc. connection). I've had this connector for a long time and I'm guessing it's under $15. You connect the green Boston speaker connection to the converter end (mine connects to the back end of the headphone-jack (which has a hole for the connection) and the red/white AV connectors to your TV.
I'd been trying to solve the problem too for a long time. Only problem is that I can't get all 5 speakers to work because I think the red/white connector doesn't work with all 5 speakers. I have yet to figure out how to make all 5 work, but the system gives great sound anyway. You will have something like a 5.1 system with your computer speakers, the Boston speakers and subwoofers.
One more issue is that if you connect it directly to the TV, you have to manually turn the Boston speakers on and off.
