How should i connect my subwoofer- is it directly to the speakers or amplifier?t


I'm assuming that you are using a standard amplifier with L and R speaker outputs if a stereo Amp.... or L and R and SUB standard RCA output jacks. If it is a more complicated setup, having surround sound speaker jacks, then look for a SUB OUT jack or plug.
Some Subwoofers are self-powered, having their own, built in amplifier especially designed for that model. Sometimes they require a SUB connection and a power supply to the 110V AC house power too. These sometimes need a connection to a standard 3.5 mm HEADPHONE jack output plug. If it's this type, then the front of your amplifier could have one. Either way, the musical signal from amplifier to the subwoofer must be available on your Amp AND be received by the type of subwoofer you are using.

The power supplies / ac adapters for my AW-871 speakers were both lost in a recent move. The speakers show input of 15v center + but no power spec. Do you have a suggestion for replacements? Thanks for...


Higher voltage then required is not so recommended, internal circuit may over voltage driven. some power amp max limit may fall within 18V only. See this link If your speaker power less then 30w you can choose 15V 2A will do or else select higher spec.

There are three wires coming out of one of the speakers. One is connecting the speakers, one is green and plugs into the computer, and the third one is a short wire that I can't figure out where it goes....


Normally there will also be a wire that goes to a power supply / adapter.

You are probably missing the the part that plugs into the electrical wall outlet.
The third wire coming from one of the speakers will likely fit into a port on that power supply adapter. Just find the power adapter that goes with it and plug them in and they should work.

The speakers need a power supply in order to drive the amplifier circuit which makes them louder.

See the image at the following link to see an example of a complete system with power supply:

Do these speakers require a specific driver?


No never, Speakers never requires drivers. But the sound card is.
Think this is helpful !

My speakers are not working. just plugged them in for the first time


well a couple things. First, does your speakers require a power source (do you need to plug it into the wall)? If it does, then make sure it's plugged in. Okay, now step two; I'm not sure what you are plugging your speakers too, so I will assume the computer since the picture associated with your post are computer speakers. Make sure the audio plug is going into the GREEN audio port on the back of the computer. If still no sound, check your speaker volume, and your computer volume (lower right speaker icon in your task bar.) If this still doesn't work, I would suggest replacing or exchanging. :D

I dont know how to set it up. I put the green cord in the computer..but theres one black cord and i dont know what to do with it.


There should be ONE stereo miniplug to be connected to the headphones output of the computer, and one power supply plug to be connected to the AC adapter. These speakers do need a power supply, since they have an internal amplifier.

I lost my GE Ultrasonic 2.1 Speaker power adapter and i need need ones but i dont know what to buy, the voltage it requires..6 or 9 volts?


at most electrical stores you can buy a universal power adaptors with a selection of socents to fit most connections. and which has a selector on it for various voltages settings.
take one of the little connectors and see which one fits. then checking the polarity on your device set the polarity the same when plugging the connector into the power supply cable. adjust voltage as needed.

Warning: when connecting a variable power adaptor alway connect on the lowest voltage setting and work up as too high voltage can distroy your appliance.

Lost my power supply


Having some trouble finding any info online about them. Did they have a large power pack that plugged into the wall? If so, there might be some information either right around where they plugged in (im assuming on the sub) or possibly on the product info sticker on the speaker. Make sure if its a round plug in that you look for the tip information (whether if is a positive tip or negative). You might be better off buying a new set, depending on the price of a new adapter, compared to the price of a new set. Let me know if this helps.

Jim, just about any generic power supply will work, so long as you match the output and polarity.  There should be a label on the old supply with the voltage and Amps (milliamps, actually), and a circle-in-a-circle with a + or - that tells you the polarity. 
If you're not sure enough to just buy one from Target, spend an extra buck or two at Radio Shack.  Bring in the old one and ask for a replacement.  You may end up with an adjustable adapter with interchangeable tips, but it will work just fine.  Sometimes the mA are a little different, but that should be okay, so long as it meets the minimum requirement on the label.
I have a pair of these running my WSP 250's.
