Connections without soldering it does not give proper conductance to the speakers and the integrated audio is good enough for headphones but to get good sound you need an amplifier to increase the output. Alternative is to add a good sound card like 'Aureal' or Yamaha or Creative plus so many available mow in the market and neither are they expensive...........sodeep

You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?


You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.
