Pin connections on Spkr out jack

Anybody have the pin configuration and identifier for the speaker output jack on the subwoofer module? Also, are the 1/8" input jacks T.R.S. (balanced)or Mono (unbalanced)? I am going to use the sub and internal amps for a custom set-up. Thanks!

How do i connect a set of Harmon Karden HK695-01 speakers to a Macbook Pro Mid 2010

HI Marc
Follow the steps below
Step 1:
Connect the green connector from the subwoofer into the headphone jack on the laptop, the black connector is not used, leave the rubber cap on the black connector to prevent static from the pin grounding on the system.
Step 2:
Plug the orange connector from the right/control satellite into the orange jack on the subwoofer.
Step 3:
Plug the brown connector from the left satellite into the brown jack on the subwoofer.
Step 4:
Plug the AC plug of the HK 965 into the wall outlet
Step 5:
Turn on the speaker set and adjust the volume accordingly.
PS: Do not Forget to adjust the Laptop volume also to minimize Distortion. Enjoy!

I don't know how to install my logictech Z523 speakers; they are hooked up but no sound and not installed; computer doesn't recognize them and my fiance threw out the instructions so I don't know how or...

Your "line in" from speakers should be plugged into the green (output) port on the back of your tower or the headphone jack on laptop. You will need to hook the 9 pin connector from the right speaker to the subwoofer. The yellow line from left speaker plugs into port labled "subwoofer" on subwoofer. Plug your power cord from speaker system into an outlet. Turn them on, adjust volume. There is no software for this product.

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?

First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.

JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.

Hope this helps

How to connect unpowered subwoofer to receiver with RCA sub out?

In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

ATP3 intermittency problem

I've had intermittent speaker problems with these models and it was caused by slight abuse, ( stress on the speaker jacks at the main board located in the main subwoofer cabinet). The problem can lead you to believe its the speakers or the wires but in my case it was a loose solder joint on the main board in the subwoofer. I had to take the subwoofer apart and carefully re-solder the connections of the speaker jacks. I've had no problems since. I've also been a little more careful not to push the jack side of the connection against the wall, kicking with my feet etc..
