Re: Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System

Hi, Based on your post/description, the Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System is a basic external speaker that plugs into your PC's speaker/headset output (green jack). It is supposed to get its power from the +5VDC supplied by the USB port. Some USB port have current limiting therefore it can be anywhere from 10 - 500 mA. The power requirement of your external Durabrand speaker maybe beyond what the PC's USB ports can supply. It does not need to be recognized by the OS since it only connects to the USB to get power but there is no data interaction. Perhaps what you can do is get an external +5VDC power supply whose output is in USB type connector. The current rating would depend on the requirement of your speaker. Offhand, if the speakers are not that big, probably a 1 Amp would do. This is of course assuming that the Durabrand speaker system is fully functional. If with an external power supply it is still a no go and you have verified that sound do come out of your green jack (with the use of an ordinary headset), then the Durabrand is defective. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Sony tv that I have my new firestick attached to currently. But my xfinity x-1 box is plugged into my marantz system where my speakers are connected and controlled.

You should have an optical audio output jack on your tv that you can connect to your receiver to output audio through your speaker system.

Connecting a single 4 ohm speaker?

Gotta be careful here....the headphone output won't drive a speaker - if you already have all other speakers connected on the back as designed, you really don't have anywhere to connect a 4ohm speaker. The "front" speaker jacks have an "A" and a "B" section but they appear to be in parallel so you really shouldn't connect a 4ohm speaker to "B" for example if you already have speakers connected to "A". The combined impedance would be too low for the amp design.

In regard to my Marantz AV Surround Receiver, Model number SR5005, I cannot get the Zone2 speakers to play. I have followed all the instructions, and nothing works. Does anyone know what I need to do...

have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...

I have no sound coming out of my speakers when I connect the receiver to my tv and ps3.

There's really not enough info here to answer your question. What outputs are you connecting to what inputs on your receiver? 1. Does the receiver produce sound from other inputs? If yes, then receiver to speaker is OK. 2. Do you have sound at a headphone jack but not speakers? This would indicate bad speaker wiring or blown output fuses.
A bit more info will help - maybe gathering it will lead you to where the connection is not correct.

Speaker wire for subwoofer

Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.

I just bought them today they work fine. You do have to have a high speed 2.0 USB port to plug them into.
