Question about Logitech X-530 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Can this be connected to a tv/dvd player?

I thought from the reviews on Amazon where I bought this system that it could be connected to a home tv/dvd player. Is this the case and which plugs go into which sockets.

Many thanks,

You need the x-530 and the Logitech adapter to convert the 3 heaphone sized jacks (orange/green/black) into 2 rca plugs (red/white), which then goes into your DVD player.

Hi, I bought recently a new 5.1 Surround Sound System Logitech X-530 and want to connect it to our new LCD LG 32LD450 HD TV. The LG TV has apart from all Digital, Optical and RCA Connections as well one...

You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.

The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.

How do i put the surrround sound on my tv?

Depends on the complexity of your home theater system, but if you are just wanting to get sound from your tv to a generic souround sound, this is very simple. On the back of your tv, there is a audio output with 2 rca connectors. One is white and one is red. Also on the back of the sound system is the same colored inputs. Get the needed cable to connect the 2. You should have surround sound. Given you tv doesnt have audio outputs, your media player ( dvd, vcr, blue ray, sattelite) should have an audio output. Connect the electronic the same way as stated above.

Can I hook up my ada 885 to my dvd player& my flatscreen tv?

Yes. They are essentially Similar to any other 120 Watt Surround System for Home Entertainment. The Fact is, the only major difference is that the connections are different. On The PC it uses Stereo Standard Outputs. On Your DVD Player, It Will most Likely require an adapter to RCA (red/white -usually- Audio Cables). It just depends on your DVD Player. Have Fun!..... :)

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD

This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.

Connecting to my DVD player

If you are going to connect your DVD player to your TV you may use an RCA cable. Or you can read your manuals (for DVD player and TV) for specification of what type of cable is compatible to your system. Or you can look to your DVD player's and TV's input/output plugs directly to see.

How to connect my Logitech X-540 speaker system to my dvd player or tv

On the logitech speakers, connect all the colored cables to their coordinating colors on the back of the subwoofer EXCEPT the green need the special Y connector that came with the speakers. (the red, white and green little one). Connect one end of the green cable to the subwoofer, connect the other end to the Y connector. Now you just need to correct the red and white cables from your tv or dvd player into those red and white cables and MWAH!!

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?

You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)

Connecting dvd player to logitech x-530

Well, if you have a DVD-ROM, all you need is a video card with a s-video out to connect to your TV and then you could put your DVD player in your room and play your DVD's from your PC. Another way to do it (without having to buy anything) is to connect the sound of your DVD player to a stereo receiver and then plug the sub into the headphone jacks and the speakers to the sub.
