Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers

3 Answers

3 of 5 speakers not working.

I have everything hooked up right,  the front 2 speakers and the woofer work fine, but no sound out of the others.  i know this problem has already been solved but I dont think its the same.  I have a laptop with an external soundcard that should be able to support the surround sound.  its a creative sound blaster.  when i take a back speaker and plug it into one of the spots for a front speaker i get music, so the speakers and functional.

Re: 3 of 5 speakers not working.

Normal stereo sound its not 5.1 if your hearing music its stereo and not in 5.1 channels, you need to activate the Creative Sound EAX sorround mix, check on the EAX console, there you can simulate 5.1 or clone the 2.1 channels to the rear speakers, i like more the simulation works better... simply sends some freqz to the rear speakers

To make the logitech x-530 work with all speakers you must have at least a 6 channel sound card, will work with 7 and 8 channel too

Sound only coming from 3 of 6 speakers

A 5.1 sound card will give output in all channels only if the audio being played is also 5.1.

Normally out of 6 Speakers only 2 front and sub woofer will play sound, in case of a DVD or Movie which has 5.1 encoding, all 5 will come alive.

Also, Dolby Prologic II and Dolby Digital will convert a 2 channel input into psudo 5.1 enviornment but Dolby has to be in hardware or speakers or Receiver.

mcdevito75 here, The HP speakers that came with your computer work fine, the bose speakers work fine on your other computer, the plug on the Bose speakers is a little shorter than the HP speakers, and only the right Boss speaker is working, HMM, Check the Bose speakers, both of them for a volume control 1 of them may need adjustment on this particular computer. If that"s not it, I would speak to a Radio Shack, Staples etc.

Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times.
The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program.
I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.

Front right speaker is not working

This may sound obvious, but have you plugged in all the plugs?a 4-channel sound system has two plugs that plug into the sound card.One is for the front speakers and part of the subwoofer, the other is the rear speakers and the other part of the subwoofer. AC97 audio normally supports only 2-channel.s your sound on-board?how many sockets does it have.A common AC97 normally has a green plug (for 2.1 speakers), a blue one for line in and a red one for a mic.A four-channel one will have a black socket for the other two speakers.and 5.1 has a yellow socket for the 5th speaker and woofer.
If your AC97 audio does not have the black socket, then you will need to buy a special card, like the Sound blaster 4.1 Digital (around £20-30).Or, if you want a 5.1 card, the Creative Audigy is considered the best, as the Audigy 2 is still expensive, and there are cheaper cards for 4.1.
Hopefully this should sort out the problem.I also have Creative Inspire M4500 4.1 speakers, and they have 2 plugs.

My speakers only work one at a time...

Check you have plugged them into the correct socket on the back of the PC ..

Chances are you have 3 sockets - first = 'front' (or pair), middle = 'back' (for 4+ speaker sets) and last = 'center & sub-woofer' ..

Sounds like you have plugged into the 'center & sub-woofer' socket :-)

No sound out of woofer

Hello sparkie102
Happy Holidays
you have to check if all the cables are well connected, and in the right inputs. 2) check your software for sound that is enable, fine.
turn up the sub volume , if got it independent.
other that this, is a failure sub. if got warranty, use it! or RMS your sub.

Speakers not working proprerly

This may be in the sound card settings itself. Even though you may have adjusted the Windows settings {if thats what your using} the sound card needs to also be set up for surround. Some sound cards do not support 4 speakers or surround sound systems. Go to Device Manager and find your sound card and manufacture then check there technical support page for info.
