My son gave me his system without the input 1 and 2 cables. Do the jacks look like IPOD jacks or are they a single jack for each one with a joined single for the computer? Is there a model number or any idea as to where tjey could be purchased here in Edmonto, Alberta, Canada?

Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your
computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini
plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red
to red and white to white.
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory
speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER
jack on the powered speaker.
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A.
2. Connect the other end to your computer's AUDIO OUTPUT jack.
We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card
offers more than one option.
3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat
steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers.
1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker.
2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet.
3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.
The connection you made is wrong. You have to connect the phones form the IPod to any available line in of your amplifier - audio system using a cable like this
This cable is common known as 3.5mm male jack to 2 male RCA.

Your Logitech MM50 has an auxiliary input that accepts industry standard 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo cables. The Macbook's headphone out jack with the icon of a small set of headphones is the audio out. You will need a male to male cable which is available from Radio Shack for a few dollars.
The Boston Micromedia speaker set comes with two speakers (right and left),a subwoofer, and a complete set of cables to connect everything up.
1.) Position the speakers. The two small speakers typically are spaced equal distance apart on a desk/table top to the benefit of the listener. The sub-woofer typically rests under the surface, on the floor for example.
.) Connect the cable sets to the back of the two small speakers along with the speaker feet. Note: the small speaker with the volume control knob will have three cables coming from it. This will be the "right" speaker. The other speaker will have a single cable and will be the "left" speaker.
2.) The cable ends will be color coded to match the jackson the sub-woofer. Match up the color coded cables to the respective colors on the subwoofer as follows:
(a) White cable end (left speaker) to white jack on sub-woofer. (b) Red cable end (right speaker) to red jack (c) Purple cable end (input) to the purple jack (d) Green cable end (computer out) to the computer's microphone output jack.
Note: if any of the cables are too short to reach their jacks for whatever reason, an extender cable with a female and male end can be purchased relatively inexpensively to make up the difference in distance.
3.) Power up the system (plug in power cables to the sub-woofer and wall), play some music, and adjust the sub-woofer sound (control knob) to suit listening pleasure.
A nice little set of speakers, I had mine for some years now and continue to enjoy them. Good luck!
If your TV has audio output jacks, then yes, you can connect your speaker system to the TV. Run a stereo RCA cable from those output jacks to the audio input jack on the Altec system, using whatever adapter required. You will probably need to convert from RCA jacks to a 1/8-inch stereo plug for the speaker input. Or you can pick up a cable from Radio Shack that has the RCA plugs on one end and the stereo plug on the other, and omit the adapter.
If the TV doesn't have audio output jacks, there isn't any easy way to hook up the Altec.

Hi, I have these. Always unplug the Sub before changing the wiring around. You should have a dual cable. Plug one end into the Sub's Audio In and DC Out (the one that looks like a power plug goes in DC Out, the one that looks like a headphone goes in Audio In). The other end of the dual cable goes to the Satellite that has the volume control. Plug into DC and Sub. Plug a cable with headphone plugs on each end into the SPKR jack on each Satellite. Plug another cable with headphone plugs into either Input 1 or Input 2. The other end goes to your computer's audio out. I don't have the original of these two cables so I can't tell you what they look like. If one is longer or thicker it should be the one to go between the speakers. Set the level control on the Sub about 1/4 up. Plug the Sub in and play some music. You can adjust the Sub level and the Bass and Treble to your liking. I have my Bass & Treble straight up, Sub at 1/4. You can use one of the inputs for your computer and the other input for another device like an iPod without having to unplug things.
Ok i looked further into your problem. Let me try and explain something to you.
When i look up the specifications for your speakers, it says you can plug them into an ipod or or any audio device, (including your computer) , and then they will work. You cant install audio drivers for the ipod, but! they will still work with the ipod. Therefor you dont need a driver for these speakers. Now what the problem MAY BE is your sound card. I can possibly help you if you can give me some specifics as to which sound card you have and what Operating system are you using ( windows xp, windows 98, windows vista etc etc..) please let me know iw ould like to help!
