I have an older set of speakers but I have a newer computer. The plug end on the speakers is too big for the headphone outlet. Is there any way to modify the plug to fit?

You can buy an adapter for a couple of dollars at a music or electronics store.

How do i hookup the what i think is the power cord to the computer its a round plug in


If it's a power cord, it doesn't plug into the computer; one end goes in the wall, the other into the speakers.

For most speaker pairs, there are 3 wires:
1) The wire that connects the speakers to each other. That's often fused into the back of the left speaker, and gets plugged into the right speaker (it's usually pretty well marked where to plug it in).
2) The wire that connects the right speaker to the computer. Usually it's pretty well marked where to plug this into the speaker. On the computer, that wire will fit into 2 ports. Usually those ports are marked with microphone and headphone icons. You want the headphone jack. If they aren't marked, try them both or check your manual.
3) The power cord. One end of that will plug into an electric outlet on the wall (or into an extension cord or power strip). The other end will plug into the right speaker; it should only fit into one hole (which will probably be marked with "12V" or "0.5A" or something like that).

It would help if you told us what kind of speakers you have, and what kind of wires you're seeing.

What you need is a splitter and not an adapter. Forget the colors yellow, green, black. They are not relevant. The business end of those colors occur inside the box. Dell manufactured these "bass ackwards". You need a 3-way headphone splitter and that will solve your problem. I bought a RadioShack Headphone Splitter Cable model 42-2458. Hope this helps. Just plug into headphone outlet

Can I add speakers, there are no outlets in the rear.


Hi,

If your desktop computer can have speakers plugged in, there will usually be a set of soclets on the back, same size as a headphone socket, there are usually three together, a pink one, a blue one and a green one. The one for the speakers is the green one. (see image below for an example, circled in red)

If this is a laptop, there may be the same three sockets somewhere, or you may just be able to use the standard headphone socket on the laptop.

Hope this helps.

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?


I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

No sound!!!


Check your computer sound volume. Make sure it is not muted or the volume is set low. Try the speaker into a music player like ipod or mp3 player that will support the speaker jack. See if it works..

They wont give out sound there plugged into the front of the computer and in the outlet plug in BUT IT WONT WORK :( help


Be sure to plug into the "green" socket on the front of the computer, not the "pink" (microphone) or "blue" (headphone output from iPod) socket.

Try the speakers in the "green" socket on the back of the computer, to ensure that the speakers work, and the volume control is "high", and that you have not "muted" your speakers.

Some motherboards have a small "jumper" to enable/disable the front audio-output sockets.

Try the speakers when connected to the headphone-output from your iPod, to confirm that they work -- they could be quite quiet.

Try plugging in earphones to see if the problem is the speakers or the output from your computer. Also, your computer output may be low power output for powered speakers and your speakers are not compatable. You may also be plugged in to the wrong output on your computer.

Headset setup


Hello,
Generally your headset will have a green plug and a pinkish plug at the end of the cord. The green cord is for headphones/sound output and the pink cord is for the microphone/sound input.
Look in the back of your computer case, not the screen. The case is the box the screen/keyboard/mouse is connected to. behind the case you should see the pink/green/purple round outlets in a row. Green plug goes into the green outlet and same with the pink. Please rate me well if this helped.

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers


I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.
