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.

    I've hooked up the X-530 system correctly, and have adjusted the audio system to handle 5.1 surround sound with 5 speakers and a woofer, and only 2 speakers and the woofer work. I can either get the front or back working , but not both. The system is not adjusted to stereo. Any ideas to get the five speakers 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

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

How to hook up Panasonic SB PM19 speakers to SA-PM23 reciever


yes you can. these are called "bi wired" speakers which means there's a hook up for the woofer and the tweeter individually. If your amp have just 2 speaker hookups it's no problem to hook the woofer/tweeter wires of each speaker together. If your amp had 4 speaker hookups, you could put the tweeters in 1 and the woofers in the other but it will still work fine with 2 speaker hookups.

I want to install a self powered woofer and tap it to the rear speakers. Can you please tell me what are the colors and polarity of the rear speaker wires for 2006 Honda odyssey right hand drive


FIRST OF ALL --- THERE IS A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HOOKING UP
A WOOFER LIKE THIS ---- IS THIS A STORE BOUGHT POWERED SUB WOOFER ? DOES IT HAVE IT'S OWN CROSSOVER BUILT INSIDE ?? I WOULD GUESS IT NEEDS TO BE HOOKED
UP TO A SUB WOOFER OUTPUT FOUND ON THE BACK OF THE IN DASH PLAYER ..
THE WOOFER NEEDS TO RECEIVE ONLY LOW FREQUENCY AUDIO WHICH MOST OF THE NEWER CAR STEREOS PROVIDE BY AN RCA JACK ON A SHORT WIRE COMING OUT OF THE STEREO ...
IF YOU TRY AND TAP IT TO FULL RANGE SPEAKERS THAT ALREADY ARE CONNECTED TO AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL THE SOUND WILL BE DISTORTED .......
POWERED SUB WOOFERS NEED A LINE LEVEL INPUT WHICH IS MUCH LOWER THAN SAY
SPEAKERS ALREADY RECEIVING AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL.
POWERED WOOFER WILL ALSO NEED TO HAVE A 12 VOLT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AND A GROUND WIRE TO OPERATE THE AMPLIFIER BUILT INSIDE.
IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TYPE OF HOOK UP I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND SOMEONE WHO DOES [ CAR AUDIO SHOP ]

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...


Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

I recently purchased a new Denon AVR-391 receiver and am having a problem hooking up my subwoofer. It seems that the Denon has a pre-out RCA looking output and my subwoofer uses conventional speaker wire. ...


Hi,
Your sub-woofer apparently does not have an amplifier built into it. This type requires you to use your front left and front right speaker output to got through it to your regular speakers. It is called a passive sub-woofer for that reason.
To set it up, Connect your front speakers to the "output" of the sub. It should say "to speakers" on it.
Then connect the Speaker Outputs for the left front and right front on your Denon AVR-391 directly to the Sub. It should say on the back of the Sub "to amplifier".
Here is some theory you should know, if you don't already know it, that will help you get a satisfactory result in setting up this system.
There is a condition on setting up all speakers and subs that not everyone know. It's call "phase alignment". Phase alignment (A Good Thing) refers to all of the speakers in a system moving in the same direction (in and out) at the same instant in time. This gives you much clearer sound and better response from your sub-woofer.
Phase Cancellation (a bad thing) is when some of the speakers are moving out and other moving in during the very same instant in time. It causes problems in sound.
IN A SUB-WOOFER, IT CAN CANCEL OUT THE LOW NOTES.
Here is how to handle it:
On the back of the receiver the speaker terminal outputs are colored Red and Black. Black is considered negative and Red is considered positive. On the back of the Sub woofer and on the speakers the same colors apply. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS GO BLACK TO BLACK AND RED TO RED WHEN CONNECTING UP THE SPEAKER WIRES.
The system will work either way. But you will have severe bass loss if the woofer wiring is out of phase because of phase cancellation.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Could a ground stop your woofer from working?


First check the speaker wire from the amp to the sub, see if it's connected right. Second check the rca cables that goes from your amp to the back of the deck. I f both wires are still connected fine try to replace the rca cables. If it still doesn't work the rear out put at the back of your deck, where the rca's are connected are bad. FYI deck is bad.

SA-AX720 no subwoofer signal?


THIS UNIT HAS NO SUB WOOFER AMP IN IT. THE ONLY WAY TO OVER COME THIS IS TO HOOK THE LEFT AND RIGHT FRONT SPEAKERS STRAIGHT TO THE SUB WOOFER AND THEN GO FROM THE SUB WOOFER BACK TO THE INPUTS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR THE FRONT SPEAKERS. THE SUB WOOFER THIS WAY WILL EXTRACT THE BASS AND THE FRONT WILL RECEIVE THEIR PART. THIS SOUNDS CRAZY AS HELL I KNOW BUT THAT'S HOW I GOT MINE TO WORK. THE OUTPUT FOR THE SUBWOOFER IS USELESS AND PUT THERE FOR YOU TO HOOK UP AN AMP FOR A SUB WOOFER. EVERYTHING HAS SHORT COMINGS, AND THAT'S THE ONE FOR THE AX-720.

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.
