I just replaced my old Harmon/kardon speakers with some new Bose Companions 3s. And needless to say they produce no sound. I have a more than adequate sound card with my Sound Blaster X-Fi Fata1ity, so Im quite puzzled as to why I can't get these to work. The sound controller lights up so I know it's getting power. And I've tried a lot of things to no avail. My know-how is exhausted, can anyone help me out?

Check first that you have connected the speaker to the right output. For example on many computer there is an aux output marked in blue that can give you this problem.
If the problem does not depend from the source, then that sounds like an internal fault on your Bose system.
Bose unplugged from power and from computer for one hour, to get rid of
electrostatic charges accumulated inside capacitors. If that does
not get rid of the problem, then there is an internal fault, either a
short on speaker wiring, or a fault on the internal amp circuit board.
I bought a set of Bose companion 3 speakers and the darn RCA jacks are cheap and wiggling loose. The cost to send back and repair out of warranty is about $125!! BOSE companion speakers may sound good, but for my money, I'd rather go with more reliable computer speaker systems like Creative or Logitech. BOSE IS WAY TO OVER-RATED, but HEY....they suckered ME out of $275!!!
First things First:
1) check cables, and the input cable to your PC.
2) Check for right voltage, may be somethings is chargind a lot**
3) Power regulator on the Speakers is damage.
4) RMS your Spks, for replace. or warranty.
5) try in another computer. ( if apply)
Hi, I came across a similar problem with an old Altec and the the solution was to only replace the defective side. Actually, what was replaced was only the speaker itself inside the enclosure which was cheaper rather than replacing the entire assembly. An electronics technician (not necessarily a computer tech) can do the job since some soldering might be involved.
