Zoostorm subwoofer speaker system for zoostorm computer
I am a novice with computers so my son put everything together and everything works fine except for the zoostorm subwoofer speaker system. When playing music or a DVD the people speaking sound muffled as it they were in a room far away. When trying to listen to a music cd the singers sound as if they are in an empty room as if they echo.

sometimes units work in tandem,meaning if your system set up is working right when everything is connected and now its not working because the woofer is not connected then your system works in tandem, once all of the speakers are connected the system will work as it should,(sometimes these units work when all wires are connected,take 1 wire out of the equation and the system wont function properly, ( you'll be fine when your woofer gets back in line!)
try to trace your problem inside the main circuitry of the jacks ( open it and see on the solder side of the Printed circuit board(where all the electronic components and soldered/welded if there are loose connections (small cracks... use magnifying glass if you have one) then solder them. also check for the transistor amplifiers and output capacitors.... check also for the connectivity of all wirings!
The sub works but the speakers don't? Do you hook up the speakers to the subwoofer output "loop"? This is a circuit issue when it works and stops working. I have the same issue so I wound up joining the wires that go to the sub and the wires that go to the speaker together and place those connections into the sub. The sub works, the satellite speaker works and the impedance load is no issue for my system. Confused? Simply run your neg/pos wire to the sub and where it connects to the sub, run another cable to the speaker (pos to pos., neg to neg).
The only way to repair it would be to deal with component level repair. Although I have the experience, it is too petty and it works fine the way it is.
the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit
Most likely the sub has the crossover in it, most likely the 2 input cables from whatever device you want to play through the system will plug into the sub then the 2 speaker cables will come out of the sub and go to the speakers, just be sure to have everything connected into and out of the sub and make sure the power cords for the speakers and sub are plugged in, I am assuming this is a self powered system wich means the amplifiers are built into the speakers and sub.
First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be. It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine. Let me know how it goes.
