Logitech X-530 speakers

Hi all, when i plug in all three cables into my computer, sound is only coming out from the subwoofer and centre speaker (the orange cable). Can any one help me as to why this is the case when it was fine before my computer died and i had to reformat it? thanks in advance!

Re: logitech X-530 speakers

Go to start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices. in the volume tab, speaker settings area click advance. make sure the speaker setup is 5.1 .if not, select 5.1 and click ok. now cilck advance in device volume area. u should c a volume slider for rear and front speakers. if u dont c the volube slider, click options-> the show the volume controls section put tick on the rear and front boxes. clik ok. and check weather they are not mute and increase the rear and fron volume to a decent lavel. there may be also sound card specifi settings that might need to be re-configured if this does not work let me know the name and model of ur sound card. Good Luck Julian Leonardo

Re: logitech X-530 speakers

I had the same problem, most of the time it's just a fawlty connections. Make sure all the cables in the back are in, try turning them around in their sockets, the same with the jacks to your computer, it sometimes works for me!

Hi .. i have just bought a logitech x 530 speaker and only 2 of the speaker parts work .. can you please give me some solution advice?

Hi names Rui i like to help you by giving you step by step instruction in propely hocking up your logitech speakers:


1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.

2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.

3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.

4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.

5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.

6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.

7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.

8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.

9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.

10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...

hope this will help you solve your problem.

You need to change the sound profile from 2 speaker system to surround sound. You will find this in the control panel area program.
Hope this helps.

You'll only be able to get true surround sound utilizing all the speakers if you have a sound card with multiple outputs (usually color coded as Green, Black, and Orange). Plug the satellite speakers into the subwoofer and run the three input wires (Green, Black, Orange) to your multi-source output.
If you only have one output on your PC (common), you should just connect the green wire and press the "matrix" button on the system. This will just duplicate the sound output into the other channels but is not "real" surround sound.
Hope that helps.

Humming noise coming out of the subwoofer

sounds like a bad cable, or a loose connection between the pc and the speakers, or from the main speaker to the subwoofer.

check the connections, or try reinserting the cables to ensure a tight fit. then check the cable from the pc to the speakers. possibly replace 1 cable and see if the problem stops.

When connecting the leads to the sound card do i plug one into the pc. and should all the speakers work straight away,I only have thee woofer and the centre speaker working.. LOGITECH X-530

There are leads that need to be connected to your computer for the Front, Rear, and Subwoofer speakers Not all motherboards have all of these connections Your Logitech manual shows how to connect the speakers correctly if you do not have all of the connections on your motherboard

Yellow plug problem

Yes, this is easily fixed. Take the cabinet apart, it'll probably be obvious what needs to be done. Need help, let me know.

I just bought new speakers (logitech x-530) which is 5.1. sound only comes out of the front 2 speakers and the sub but not the back 2 and the centre. any ideas? computer specs are: motherboard - asus...

Sorry just doublechecked your board specs. Go to the sound properties in control panel. Click on the configure speakers option. If everything is plugged in right then windows should configure it for you to a 5.1 config. Hope this helps.
