Usually, it's the "stereo-audio-output" from your amplifier that goes to the sub-woofer, and then outputs from the sub-woofer to the left/right speakers. Or, if your amplifier has a separate output labelled "sub-out", then your connect your sub-woofer to that mono-channel output.
You can order replacement speaker cables from Gateway Spares online. These look like the appropriate cables:

The Guys at Boston Acoustics helped me get my speakers to work. The Boston BA7500 speakers are coaxial digital speakers so you need a digital output on your sound card. Analog will NOT work. My new HP Pavilion has a Realtek sound card with a digitial RCA plug output. I had to go to Amazon and get a male RCA to 1/8" Stereo Mini Female adapter plug. I just pluged it in and configured my sound card to 16 bit 48 khz output to the RCA output and everything works great. The speakers sound better then ever, great for 10 year old speakers! They sound better then anything I have seen avalable today. The guys at Boston were the only guys that helped with getting this to work! Thanks again to them and Amazon has every type of adapter plug you may need. Good luck.
To fix this I took mine apart. But I suspect it was the red and white speaker outputs. I unscrewed the screws and moved the red and white speaker outputs around and then put the thing back together. It now works again.
This may be a software issue. If you only had two speakers before, the software will not use the rear speakers.
Go to Control Panel. Click on "Sound and Audio Devices". Under the Volume Tab, at the bottom, you will see a picture roughly representing the type of speakers.
Click on the Advanced button.
Click on the arrow in the pick box, and choose Surround Speakrs or the 5.1 Speakers.
Click Okay. Try the speakers again.
I wasn't able to find a schematic diagram. Could you please send a picture or pictures from the top and bottom of your device. close ups of the circuitry from top and bottom will help to determine where that wire is connected to email@example.com
This speaker system requires a digital audio input, which most older systems don't have. The sound card that was built into your Gateway can put out either a digital or analog signal depending on how you have it set. Chances are your new sound card might be able to output in digital mode as well, but you may have to turn it on manually. Try double-clicking your volume icon in your system tray, then click the "advanced" button at the bottom left. This should bring up a window that lets you adjust the treble and bass, but it should also give you an "other options" area that lets you turn on digital output. If your new card supports digital output, the option should be there. If the card does not support it, you will have to use a different card. I hope this helps.
