After formatting my PC the subwoofer has never worked. I've tried the audio settings on the PC,the connections, the cable to the PC and I've even tried to see if the problem could be solved by connecting the speakers to an MP3 player (I thought perhaps the computer had problems!). NOTHING!!!! Please help!!

Try pulling the power from the unit for a few minutes, the reconnect. Make sure you've got the surround settings correct. If that doesn't do it, you've likely popped the amp or the amp's power supply in the sub box.
Conected via. 6x cinch? Most of audio signals actualy are not 5.1 - so that is IMAO why your sub is not working. Try search your audiodevice control for something like LFE. Or try playing DVD which has 5.1 audio (check player settings).
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!
In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.
It is my hope that I can help. This applies to the type of sound card on your PC.
- If you have a 2-channel sound card: Select 2 on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to tyhe front jack on your PC sound card. With this input setting, your speakers will upmix the 4-channel signal and create a center signal for your speakers.
- If you have a 4-channel sound card: Select '4' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.
- If you have a '6'-channel sound card: Select '5-1' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.
Your sound card is located on the back of your PC Tower.
UNPLUG THE GREEN WIRE FROM THE COMPUTER AND PLUG IT INTO A CD PLAYER IF IT WORKS BETTER ON A CD PLAYER THAN THE COMPUTER IT SELF THERE MAYBE A PROBLEM WITH THE SOUND CARD AND ALSO TRY THESE STEPS I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU I AM SURE ONE OF THEM WILL WORK.
1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected. 2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player. 3. Ensure that the SoundTouch
remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer. 4.
Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another
single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage
regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead
of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house. 5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up. 6.
Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote
control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will
produce audio that will be played from the audio device. 7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio
