Don't know if you've solved this yet but just in case ...
There is nothing to install with loudspeakers - they are independent devices and have nothing to do with your computer.
Check the little lights. There should be one on the back of the subwoofer (by the power switch) and one underneath each of the satellites. If you haven't got the lights under the satellites then you probably have a faulty subwoofer. Check thought that your connections are solid.  Remember the two satellites' connectors are keyed and may not be fully home, rotate them slightly until they click completely in.
Theses are excellent speakers and should be deafeningly loud.

Check that you are fitting the connectors into the subwoofer correctly.
Each plug is keyed (the plug is shaped so that it will only fit into the correct socket).
It is very easy to think you have plugged them in when in reality they are just 'located' in the holes.

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?


First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.


JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.


Hope this helps

Still sounds like my speakers are in mono


Make sure that the speaker config is set to stereo or surround, depending on speaker capabilities. Once you run the speaker config in sound devices you should be all set. Hope this helps.
