Re: Z-560

Yes they can, and would probably sound good. keep in mind the power rating of the speakers,as the output of a stereo/hts amp may excede this if the volume is to high. D-Dan

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Dell Inspiration 560 with Windows 7 and if so how do you hook them up and install

since they are stereo they should have not issue. just connect the 3.5mm jack to your output port typically the green audio jack.

How do i connect to laptop? i can only hear 2 of 4!

If your laptop hasn't a 5.1 surround card you can't connect them in a true 5.1 surround system way. But if you have a stereo sound card and if you don't care about true multichannel and want just to hear sound from all the speakers you neet to connect the adapter that came along with your speaker set-just plug and match the colors from the speaker plugs with the adapter and buy a jack stereo to 2 rca cable and plug the rca connectors to the adapter and plug the stereo jack to you laptop.

Hello i have a medion 5.1 active sound system and i am trying to install it to an acer 5335 laptop but for some reason it will not work. i am using the usb method can you give me some advise and help...

hello Paul,

I understand that you wish to connect an laptop computer that has a standard stereo out(2 channels), earphoe jack or adio out to an active stereo system that supports the dolby 5.1 multichannel souround sound.

That is where the problem starts.The active sound system has more input channels than the two stereo channels given by the laptop, so connecting them via adaptor (audio out from laptop, earphone-like, 3.5 mm' male' jack to red and black chinch plug,'male' version to stereo L(left) and R(right) channel in at the active system) may provide you with extra stereo sound enhancement(like any other amplifier would), but no real surround sound..

To solve this, you would need a stationary desktop PC with an extra surround soundcard
that has all the multi channel out in it, as there is no chance to upgrade your laptop with such devices I am sorry to tell you that you perform an impossible task to get surround sound from your laptop.

Is it possible to connect my Altec ACS48 speaker system to my TV?

If your TV has audio output jacks, then yes, you can connect your speaker system to the TV. Run a stereo RCA cable from those output jacks to the audio input jack on the Altec system, using whatever adapter required. You will probably need to convert from RCA jacks to a 1/8-inch stereo plug for the speaker input. Or you can pick up a cable from Radio Shack that has the RCA plugs on one end and the stereo plug on the other, and omit the adapter.

If the TV doesn't have audio output jacks, there isn't any easy way to hook up the Altec.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if it has helped you. Thanks for asking here!

How can i plug in my logi tech speakers on my new dell computer,

  1. 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 M3D button on the controller unit (if you own a z-560 or z-540) or use the source selector switch (if you own a z-5300 or x-620). If you do not have any of the models above, you can 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.

Loss of sound to Logitech Z560

I repaired Z-560 speakers with a defective left front channel by chopping off one of the input leads close to the 3.5 mm stereo jack that goes into the PC and joining on the leads from a new one. At first I thought the fault lay in the main amplifiers in the sub woofer unit but I was wrong and it turned out to be far simpler to fix than I anticipated.
