Re: Connection to Mixer

I am not sure about that brand but on my Roland Speakers, the TRS jack lives inside the XLR. I first missed it. Take an XLR and try to connect. I can't imagine that they would not have XLR especially for studio monitors. Also are your speakers passive or active, that is something that I would seriously at. No amplitude, low signal, no active.

Lights but no sound

check that they are connected up correctly and are plugged into the correct socket.
go to control panel, or the utility that controls the sound card attributes, such as realtek mixer, soundblaster mixer control, and ensure that sound output is set for speakers.
go to volume control and ensure that sound is not muted.
With some modern motherboards it is far less straightforward to set up speakers than it used to be.
In your system devices/device manager check whether the sound / video codecs are installed and are not listed in the "other devices " list. If they are that means the driver will need to be installed.
The way to check whether the sound card is functioning at all is to plug a pair of headphones into the appropriate socket and check whether sound is produced.

It is fairly straightforward but is made difficult when you have 6 sockets on the soundcard.

How to connect behringer ms16 monitors to a xenyx q8o2usb?

Hello, i've read and watched the manual and the xenyx itself and what. there is to understand if you just read everything. Your speakertje come at the output of your xenyx and that thing you can use as audio source or put your soundsources in your mixer and just play it.
  • Built-in stereo USB/Audio Interface to connect directly to your computer. Free audio recording, editing and podcasting software plus 150 instrument/effect plug-ins downloadable at
So just use the mixer as your audio interface and your ready. The xenyx is nice for the money, the ms-16 which they call 'studio'-monitots is offcourse nonsens. Nice sounding laptop speakers are they, but in a home studio you need at least speaker 400euro/piece , but you can play with this nicely.

How to connect Behringer qx1200 mixer with pc and pc/speaker? I tried all solutions but i didnt' get any sound. Earphones works great

the mixer connects to the pc via usb or analogue i/p's
the mixer does not connect to the pc speaker
this has to be done with the software you're running on your computer
the easiest way is..plug the headphone o/p into any amplifier line i/p
( amp and speakers or powered monitors ) and forget about the pc speaker ..they're sh!te period ..or you can plug the headphone
o/p into the mixer then the mixer into an amp but this is more complicated and you will need to read up on it
but do yourself a favour and get some small multimedia speakers
similar to these for starters

How to i connect my bose companion 2speakers to my computer and get sound

hi, first Identify what computer you have. Is It A Mac or PC?

If it is PC
There should be 2 small 3.5mm coloured sockets on the back,front (or both ) of the main box (tower/desktop unit). You should find that they are coloured Green and Red. Green is for sound output (Headphones/speakers or hifi) and the Red is for sound input or Recording. Used for things like microphones. Some will accept line sources such as mixers and Ipods pr cassette players, but please check your sound manager, mixer settings in your opperating system to make your you have an adjustable input setting for Mic and Line input attenuation as not all do and you may end up with a distorted mess. You may also find there is a small diagram of headphones or a microphone to indicate sound "in" and "out" ports.

If you have a mac

Appart fom me being envious :-) there are two sockets. On laptop types, on the side or on the tower types on the front,back or both. They have a diagram of a microphone and headphones. Hadphones is for audio output to headphones, speakers, hifi, dj mixer. The Microphone is a sound input. Please read above for microphone port usage. Hopefully this answers your question. Please also bear in mind that if you have no sound once plugged in, you may need to adjust the audio properties in the system in the system and/or program you may be using

My Dell A225 Speakers do not play audio- just the computer sounds.

Test this setup with your walkman/ipod.

The most likely problem is in your computer's mixer selection.

Put a CD into your computer drive and play this CD.

If the CD audio output is low then dial up the mixer CD output.

If you do not has audio via CD at all then the CD drive to sound card audio cable is disconnected.

I just bought these speakers one month ago and they already don't work. The one speaker works, with the green line. The one with the red line doesn't.

Often the cab;es aren't quite plugged in all the way or get broken.

ALSO check your mixer panel in the computer that the "pan" control is set to the middle for the speaker output. Usually right click the speaker icon to get to the mixer panel.

Stereo speakers not working on my lap top

Fixed this problem finally. This solution is for Vista. It's quite a process getting them connected! Make sure you've paired the speakers and that went fine. Turn the speakers on. Click the bluetooth icon in the Task Manager. Click on the "Bluetooth Settings" tab from the menu. A dialogue box called Bluetooth Radio Properties opens. Click the Audio tab. If you've paired your speakers right you should see them in the list. Highlight them and click the "Connect" button. The speakers should then connect. Make sure they are set as the default device (use the Volume Mixer from the Task manager to do this) and you should be right as rain.
