Well, easy task, just put a music CD, on system and if you got an headphones, put in the green connector on your sound card, pop up the PC volume, and see if you heard sound, if you do, heard sound then the problem is your speakers. if don't is your sound card.
good luck

Dead Cambridge Soundworks 740 radio

I spent $300 for the thing 10 yrs ago, then paid$125 for a display repair, now its crapping out repetitively and I refuse to pay ungodly sums to repair it again only to have the next thing fail in a few yrs. So, I plan to gut mine and convert to a speaker dock for my iPhone - small mini-amps are under $50 now. I plan to leave the speakers in the case since they are properly ported and sound great as is. I'll pull the speaker wires out the back and mount the amp on top - might not look pretty but it'll work just fine and some of these little amps have FM tuners, SD card readers and remotes. won't be as elegant but it'll sound good.

Woofer has popping noise

I have the same problem with my Cambridge Soundworks CSW250. Also one of the speakers doesn't work all the time. I'm sure it's a loose connection on the circuit board. When I tap the subwoofer near the connections, the popping noise changes (gets worse, better, other speaker works,etc.).I tried taking the subwoofer apart, but the area near the connections is sealed with glue, so I cannot access it. I hate it because when it works,it sounds so good. Anyone know how to get just the circuit board and back panel?

I have used the sound test to check my CS 5.1 system. When I test the subwoofers, there is no sound. I have played CDs with deep bass, no sound is emitted from the subwoofers. I have T-500...

One step at a time. Get the subwoofer to work, THEN play music through it.

You don't describe the electronics, IF you have a sub defined, whatever other steps it probably needs to pass LFE to the sub.

Had my computer rebuilt and now my cambridge soundworks GCS300 speakers will not work....what do i do

Generally speakers will not need a driver, its more likely your soundcard needs the driver - have you tried anything else rather than the speakers to get sound? If you cant get any sound at all then its your soundcard so you will need the driver for it - otherwise try the link below, its the only thing that comes remotely close to a driver for these speakers -

thx, hope this helps :)

Lost Speaker Sound

It does sound like a connector issue, don't you think?

What happens if you DON"T touch the connector but move the volume control on the controller?

Have you tried looking outward toward the source?

Cd won't go into the cd slot on the Soundworks--any suggestions?

As far as I know, SoundWorks speaker systems don't have a CD slot. Why would they?
They're supposed to be connected to a computer, which has a CD/DVD drive.

Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers

Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.

Speakers working, then suddenly not...

It's possible they've died, have you checked that your sound card and drivers are working by using another set of speakers or headphones.
