Question about JBL Audio Players & Recorders
Plugged them in. Is there something I should click in, say, system preferences to end my misery?
Below is the review from a jbl jembe 2.0 owner that may provide a clue for your problem. I am providing the link to the page also, but it may not work.
Irritating to own
I'm going to concur with the other reviews. These speakers would be nice, if only they would stay on. For whatever reason, they've included some kind of auto shut off that doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. Presumably, it's when it gets too quiet, and doesn't think it needs to be on. But I've had it go quiet on me where there was clearly sound present. Then, to get them to turn back on, you have to either rotate the volume to turn it off, and then back on again, or wait for your video to create a loud enough noise for the speakers to indicate that it's time to turn back on again. Who knows what you've missed by that point.
This is something that was probably created with a noble intent, but they've failed in its execution. When they operating, the sound quality is quite nice, and they did their job of reducing the amount of desk space that was being taken up by my very old component speakers. Which was really what I wanted them for. Unfortunately, any good qualities they have are seriously overwhelmed by this, what I consider, a major design flaw. Which is equally a shame, because they're not cheap.

This also happened to me after unplugging some headphones. After reading this, I opted for putting the headphones back in instead of a toothpick. This fixed it.

SOURCE: no sound from speakers
Do they connect to the computer via USB or mini plug?
If mini plug, make sure you have the right jack on the back of the computer (there's two)
Then go into System Preferences ... select "Sound" and see if you can select something other than "Internal Speakers" - the computer may just not be aware that you want to use the external speakers ...
Are the speakers powered? Is there a volume control on the subwoofer, or an external fob with a volume control on it? You probably know this if you used them previously with your Compaq computer ...
