I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?


Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

Hook mz506 surround sound to my Samsung tv


Typically surround sound is run through a receiver or stereo. The sound from the tv is carried to the receiver by cables (hdmi or Audio-Video connected to input area of receiver). Then the speakers are connected to the output area of the receiver.
If you are not using a receiver, then the speakers must be able to connect directly to the tv and you have to see what kind of cabling your tv supports.

On AUX connection not all the speakers work


Below is a review of the T7900 which I've copied to provide info on the system setup. For Surround Sound to work properly,Computer Sound Cards and Home Theater receivers will have speaker outputs for front, rear, side, subwoofer speakers.

"This is a set of 7.1 speakers designed to be connected to your PC's
sound card. 7.1 means that you get 7 speakers with the .1 referring to the sub woofer which generates the bass. The sub woofer is the large box that connects to the mains and is designed to be kept out of sight under your desk. The speakers are relative small which allows you to have three on your desk and the other four discretely placed around the room. Finding some where to put the side speakers can be a pain though however you don't have to use them all. The unit has a switch on the back which allows you to either use 5, 6 or 7 speakers - this is useful as gives more flexibility dependant on the shape of you room. The number of speakers does mean running lots of cables around the room and this is the main disadvantage. Although the cables are fairly thin and can be tacked to the wall (I have hidden them under the carpet though). The unit connects to the three outputs on your sound card. The leads are colour coded but its worth sticking labels on them to correspond to the connectors on the sound card as if you ever unplug them it can be a pain to get them back in the right order. The sound quality is excellent especially in a smaller room - the bass in particular can be very powerful (this can be controlled via the wired remote). It works better for games than movies though but overall you are unlikely to get better sound quality for the money. Highly recommend."

Ive got creative inspire T7900 7.1 speaker system attached to my pc.one of the speaker connections in sub-woofer is faulty ? the sub-woofer seems to be a sealed unit so cant take panel off to have a look...


Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?

If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one

If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up

Setup problem


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
