Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers
I have just hooked up the creature 2 speakers to a portable tv and dvd player using the white and red jack, leads but cannot get any sound coming out of the speakers when the tv or dvd player are on.Any suggestions for this?
If you do not have 3.5mm earphone jacks so you can use this same RCA jack but this you had to connect with the audio amplifier and after that you will get sound.

I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower.
I decided to take it the speakers apart.
I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again!
I hope this helps someone!

Thanks to cagamba for his discovery. I thought for a while I had bought a lemon. Touch the audio plug outlet at the back of the computer with one hand and touch the volume control with the other hand. It really works.

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...
I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).
This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.
JBL Creature 2 are a computer
speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two
satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system
connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a
laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the
sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable
connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the
matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The
connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is
shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is
firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's
audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is
pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights
on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is
still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the
right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio
playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of
the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a
red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.
Hope this helps
