SOURCE: Can the Altec Lansing VS3251 5.1 work with a Xbox?

Because this system is made to work with the PCs, it has a 3.5 mm stereo input. The 360 has rca cable outputs. Fortunately, the signal is the same and all you need is a 3.5 mm to rca y adapter that you can find at radioshack or any local electronics store.

to get 5.1 you need to have an optical/co-axal/hdmi input in to the speakers to get 5.1 and then the dvd player must have one of them as an out put

Philips DVP 3256 has 6 outputs which takes in RCA connectors
Altec lansing VS3251 has 3 STEREO outputs.
Buy 3 nos of STEREO (female) to RCA (male) cables
1. Connect the Altec's green wire to first stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Front left and Front right
2. Connect the Altec's black wire to second stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Rear left and Rear right
3. Connect the Altec's orange wire to third stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Centre/Sub woofer. Interchange RCA ends if the Subwoofer sounds dull.

Good Luck

SOURCE: connecting an Altec Lansing ADA995 subwoofer system to a stereo

I have this exact Altec Lansing speaker system and I'm currently just using it with my Dell computer. But, I know you don't have to install these speakers to any high powered receiver for good sound quality. The subwoofer has two separate 200 watt RMS combined amplifiers built in for it's single knob controlled dual 6.5" bass drivers and 2-way magnetically shielded satellites, which are amplified together by any source that has an analog or digital volume control. The speakers act as a preamp receiver to any volume or frequency tone level controlled audio source. These input sources can also equalize the speakers receiving input signal for bass, treble or mid-range adjustments. You only need to obtain the proper adapter to hook up all the speakers to your desired component or device. Besides a computer, for example a TV with a variable audio out function or a mp3 player will work. The adapter that i am referring to is similar to what is included with certain 5.1 Logitech brand computer and multimedia speakers specifying gaming console and TV connecting. It has all three color coded 1/8" connector inputs on one end and RCA jack outputs on the other. This can be purchased more easily online then offline at stores such as Ebay for a fairly inexpensive price. However this adapter will not decode true 5.1 surround, but instead give a 5 channel stereo effect. I guess if one was looking for an inexpensive alternative solution to purchasing traditional high end home entertainment audio equipment, the ADA 995s are one of few computer speaker models in my book that can do a decent job.

Can I connect this to my tv? If so how-can't figure out how.


Sure, if your TV has some kind of audio outputs (and volume controls) for the "audio 5.1 inputs" you see in this picture.

You COULD adapt the probably-present stereo audio from your TV for use with the front channels . Stereo.

Altec Lansing VS3251 rear left channel not working


Sounds like you "blew" the left channel. Make sure your connections are good, and all positives and negatives hooked up the way they are meant to be. If it still does not work, take it to be repaired. Call around first, with the AND serial number. Get repair estimates, ask about the "bench charge"
