From my speakers when I connect them to the audio output and then connect the usb, they'll turn on and make a crackling noise. The box says they are compatible with macs, why no sound?

My speakers are plugged in and connected but there is no sound and it says there is no audio device. how do i fix it

Check that the speakers are powered on (assuming they need power) and that the volume control is set at a mid-level.Next check that you have the speaker 3.5mm jack plug inserted into the correct speaker socket on the audio card - there are normally three sockets, one each for a microphone, speaker or headphone output and for line output - these are often colour coded on newer systems and if so, match the colour of the speaker jack plug to the speaker socket.If the speakers are connected by USB instead of an audio jack plug, then check to see if the USB device has been recognised automatically - if not, then you may need to find any software that came with the speakers and install this before the system will recognise them.Finally, open the system audio controls and check what device is selected for audio output - ensure that this is the same as the speaker device you are wanting to use.One further test, if you have the speakers powered on and they have a standard audio jack, you should hear some feedback sound if you touch the contacts at the end of the jack plug with your fingers.

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...

To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.

Speaker will not work. Cannot adjust the volume.

Make sure you can see the small LED light on the speakers. If I remember correctly, those speakers are USB powered, and need to be plugged into the USB port for power, and the green audio output port for sound signal. If they are plugged in, and you cannot turn them on, you have broken speakers. If you CAN turn them on, then ensure that the audio cable is plugged into the green audio output jack (sometimes it has a headphone icon by it) and make sure your computer has not muted the audio.

Hooked up to my Mac computer but not working help no sound light on help

What sort of speakers are they, USB connected or Line-out connected?
On your Mac, open System Preferences (from the Apple Menu or from the Dock), locate Sound (normally the last icon in the second row) and it will list all the available audio outputs available to you. Mine lists "Internal Speakers - Line Out - Digital Out - Soundflower". If I had the HK Soundsticks with the USB connection they would be listed as well.
Select the output that is appropriate to the speakers you have and check that the volume is set away from zero and that should be that.
If you have USB connected then check USB, if they are normal speakers with an iPod headphone type connector then check line out.
Make sure that any lights on the speakers are on and the volume know is set half way.
If there are no lights on the speakers (and I don't know of any that don't have at least one indicator light) then the problem lies with the speakers.
Report back and let us know what happens.

Bose Companion 3 series II speakers aren't producing sound (imac)

from what I've read, the imac has a 3.5mm (.138) jack while the Bose jack is 1/8 (.125). very small difference in size (.013), but enough to cause problems.

Speakers not listed in sound output options

I would try un-installing the driver/ application that controls the speakers and re-instaling.
