Are these powered speakers? If so you my have blown a fuse or amp inside speaker needs work, such as a blown capacitor. It coild be wire on plug, if you have a miltimeter you can use it to figure out if plug is at fault. Also just check for broken wires do the simple things first.

SOURCE: BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.

this should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.

SOURCE: Had a old Gateway computer with Boston Digital

You can't, at least not with the integrated sound. The speakers only take digital input, and the Gateway had a digital sound card installed. That new board of yours has PCI slots available. You might be able to use the old Gateway sound card. I've never tried it, but XP might recognize the card and have native drivers. If not, you might be able to find XP drivers at Gateway's site. Otherwise all you'll be able to do is buy a new set of analog speakers.

3250hd


How have you connected the audio cables to the TV? The 3250HD has component, DVI, and composite video out. There is also two analog audio outputs (for the component and composite video) and a digital audio output. Make sure that you are using a TV and not a monitor. Many monitors do not have built-in speakers. (In that case, use external speakers.)

If you use the digital audio output, make sure that your audio receiver audio input is connected to the set top box audio out. Then make sure to set the correct source for that audio signal. (Note the TV may have a digital audio port; that is an audio out.)

If you are using one of the analog audio outputs directly to the TV, make sure that you are using the correct set of audio IN on the TV and audio out on the set top box. (If you are on the Component input, your audio won't be heard if you are using the Composite audio output.)

Next try different audio cables. Make sure that the TV speakers are on. (Some TVs have an option to disable the speakers if you use external speakers at times.) Try connecting the audio output to a receiver and speaker system (or speakers with aux in). You might need an RCA F/F to 3.5 mm M adapter for some devices. If another set of speakers do not work, then the set-top box probably has a broken audio output. If another set of speakers work, then the problem is with the TV audio. This could be a problem with the jack or the speakers.

I hope this helps.

No sound. Tried disconnecting/reconnecting all input/output HDMI cables. Only computer is connected via RCAs (for sound only). No sound at all. Audio works on HDTV, which is going from cable box,...


Did the speaker relays light up ? and did you hear the third speaker relays ON clicking sound? If both no, DSP problem. If both yes, DIR problem. If the speaker relays lit up but NO speaker relay clicking sound, check relay driver +24V power supply.

Trying to connect BA735 speakers to a MacBook? No sound? Are they compatible?


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

Won't work with new computer


I would suggest going to START>Control Panel>Sound HQ(or something similar, like Sounds and Audio Devices etc). From this point youll want to make sure, under the Sounds or Output tab, that your Boston Acoustics are selected. If theyre not listed, try to pick whatever it is your plugging into(Say a jack thats on the computer, look for something like "Internal Port" or "Dell Ports" for your computer name.) Please PM or send me an email if the problem persists

What do I need to purchase to use these speakers with my new HP HPE-137c PC (was originally used with a Gateway PC)?


My clarification request was supposed to be a solution. I thought I'd clickedt the right place but maybe not. I see the link I included also didn't work. So let's try it again. You need a PCI sound card like this one which has both analog and digital outputs. Enable the digital output and you'll be able to keep using those BA speakers.

I have a Dell Inspiron 630m computer with these speakers


Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Use the dongle that came with your Inspiron. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.

I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.

I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.

To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.

I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

I'd like to connect my HP laptop to Yamaha 663 receiver


Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.

Zone 2


I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
