Power indicator doesn't show power is available when plugged in

I've been using the subwoofer and speakers as an output device for my iPod. It just stopped working last week - when the unit is plugged in, the power light doesn't illuminate and there is no sound. Is there a fuse on the inside that I might have to replace?

HI, Jsprandel
There is no fuse inside, but, consider, a replacement, if you have warranty, but, unfortunally, there is no other way , beside take to a repair shop, and have it fix there.
you may have to secure your speakers with a UPS too, depending on the fluctuation on energy at home.
good luck

Subwoofer not working

The subwoofer is dependent on a sound amp powered by an external source whereby the speakers are powered by the line output from the sound source (like a computer speaker out jack). Powered Subwoofers controlled by a power amplifier require a power source such as an AC/DC source plugged into the house power. If the device is defective or a mismatch, the subwoofer will not function. Try a new power transformer and see if that fixes the problem. Other than that, if the power transformer is good, then the woofer could be defective.

Try pulling the power from the unit for a few minutes, the reconnect. Make sure you've got the surround settings correct. If that doesn't do it, you've likely popped the amp or the amp's power supply in the sub box.

It must be a power adapator problem. Most of the power adaptors do not have a indicator to show you if its working. Is the power indicator on the subwoofer module working if not I am right about the adaptor.

Speakers not working

Follow this checklist:
1) Make sure they're securely plugged into the wall
2) Make sure that any relevant power switches are in the "on" position. Is there one one the subwoofer?
3) Make sure they're securely plugged into your computer (or other device)
4) Make sure that the source device is actually outputting sound. Try plugging headphones directly into the computer
If these fail, please come back with more details. Are there any indicator lights/LEDs on the speakers? If so, do they light up when plugged in and turned on?

I recently installed Windows 7 and my Boston BA745 speakers will not work. I'm looking for driver or other solutions.

1) Try the portable player test. Unplug the speakers from the computer and plug them into the headphone output of a portable-type stereo product. This test should produce sound. If it does the problem is most likely in the soundcard, or in your internal volume settings. You should contact your computer's support group for further help in those areas.

2) Is the green power light illuminated? If not, you could have one of two possible causes. The first and less serious issue is that the power supply is not outputting the correct voltage. You can test the power supply with a voltage meter or you can always take the power supply to any electronics store and have it checked there. If it is not outputting the correct voltage (12VAC), contact our parts department for a new one at (978) 538-5136.

If the power supply is working properly, then your problem is most likely in the amplifier. In this case, we will need to fix your system here, and you can contact customer service at the above phone number to set this up.

3) If the system is connected properly and you have a green subwoofer light, disconnect the power supply from the wall for 10 minutes. This is a common problem on overloaded surge protectors. To many devices on the same surge protector can limit available power. Putting your speaker system on its own circuit (or a more dedicated one) should eliminate this problem.

4) Check the bass level on the back of your subwoofer, (or on your desktop control pod. For best subwoofer performance place the woofer on the floor along a wall or better still in a corner. This "corner loading" will increase bass output.

Is there an adapter for Apple Pro Speakers M6531 for an Apple Mac Pro computer?

The only thing I have found that will work with these speakers is called the Griffin iFire. It use a firewire port on your mac to power the speakers and has a normal mini plug on the end of it. However, saying this they are not readily available you may be able to pick them up on ebay or another auction site at some point. An review of the iFire can be found at

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work

Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!
