I just installed an azuntech 7.1 sound card and i only have front speakers working.I'm using logitech X-530 5.1

You need to connect the Green wire, the black wire and the orange wire. The Green is front speakers the black is rear speakers and the orange is for a center channel. After you have done that you need to go into sound settings for your sound card and make them that way.

Only the front left and right + sub woofer work. the front center and two rear speakers do not work. when i set the options to speaker fill all the speakers work but the bass suddenly goes very weak. why?

This is your surround sound system they should work when you are watching a movie with surround sound. make sure that you polarity are correct on all speakers.

I have a HP computer and I Installed a set of Multi Media speakers and only get sound from the left speaker the one withoou the controls , can you help?

First thing make sure the wire is plugged all the way in on the computer. And if that doesn't work make sure the balance control on the speakers is centered. If that doesn't fix it, it could be the wire connecting it to the comp., or the right channel is blown in the right speaker itself. I hope this helps.

X-540 speakers no sound rear speakers

rear speakers are not designed to put out the same output as fronts. They are for supplemental sound only, to make it seem like there's something happening behind you.

Setup problem

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. 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 source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also 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.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

Sound not coming out of the rear or center speakers

Sort of confused a bit I understand you buying a new system you say the sound does not come out the rear and centre speakers does the sound come out of any spearkers other than the two you mention if it is then your wirings are wrong if the sound is not coming out of any speakers then its the sound card BUT you will know this immediately you disconnect that system. The sound would be coming out of the laptop ordinaryly? which is it?
