You'll only be able to get true surround sound utilizing all the speakers if you have a sound card with multiple outputs (usually color coded as Green, Black, and Orange). Plug the satellite speakers into the subwoofer and run the three input wires (Green, Black, Orange) to your multi-source output.
If you only have one output on your PC (common), you should just connect the green wire and press the "matrix" button on the system. This will just duplicate the sound output into the other channels but is not "real" surround sound.
Hope that helps.
Go through systematically and check all connections. Start at your PC. Is the soundcard set-up correctly? Is it set to 5.1, stereo? Next, look at the wires. Are each of the wires plugged into the correct places? (you may need to refer to an instruction manual for this) At the other end of the wire, are they plugged into the right places on the back of the subwoofer? Are the front satellites plugged into the right places? After this, are the speakers themselves functional?
Usually, I find it's a connection along the way, nothing more serious.
You may have a more serious problem, in which case it would be difficult to fix, but for now, there's a simple check for you.
HI , this means that your soundcard is not 5.1 Channel , and the speakers are , and 5.1 = Surround Sound , without a 5.1 Channel Sound card you will only be able to obtain Stereo out of it... Sound cards are cheap these days , look for one and it will work perfectly.
Hi , Just to clarify is your Sound Card that you are connecting it too , a 5.1 Channel Sound Card?? if not then that is the problem as it is a 5.1 Surround Sound System..Reason for it only coming out of 2 speakers when you connect it too an ipod , is the Green Cable Doesnt Comply with all the Speakers , you need a 5.1 CHannel Sound Card to connect all the Cables into.A 5.1 Channel Sound Card looks like this http://www.dclstore.co.uk/images/products/genius-soundmaker-value-5.1-channel-sound-card-16-bit-pci-31720009100-l.JPG
A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed
I installed my soundcard which is the sound blaster SE audigy but when i try to test the sound i see that it does not sound separately.What i have to do to make them sound saperately when i'm testing it ?
Right, I am not technically minded at all, and all this talk about updating software and plug-ins baffled me. I bought my Logitech speakers 3 days ago, and happily plugged them into the soundcard, only to be puzzled that only my front speakers and subwoofer worked when I played music or video. I then had a brainwave. Using the 3 in 1 port that logitech provided me with, I got myself a phono to mono lead, which you can get at all good electrical stores, (take the three way box with you if you are stuck) Then proceed to plug the three speaker outputs into the box, colour co ordinated, then the phono end of the phono to mono lead in the box at the other side. Then using the single input, plug it into the input of your Soundcard. My soundcard has 8 inputs, so I just kept trying them all until sound came out through my speakers. A much less technical answer than changing all your drivers, creating profiles, fiddling with the deep insides of your PC. Hope this is of some use to you guys!
