Question about Logitech X-540 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Proper set up

I was just given a set of logitech x-540 speakers for christmas and am very excited. Now i run a decent computer but have always had total crap speakers before this and am a bit confused about setting these up. My old speakers had 1 wire that plugged into back of my computer and poof they worked. These new speakers have 3 cables front, rear, and sub yet i only find 1 plug in on back of my computer labeled speakers. Am i screwed due to poor quality sound card to be foreced to hook up only 2 speakers and live with that or is there a way i can also get my sub to pound with the speakers?
PS the box came with no manual otherwise im sure it would have told me what is up.

Re: Proper set up

Try to google the brand name and get the user's manual. Usually the extra cords plug into one of the other speakers and then one to the computer. Sound card could be an issue but I doubt it.

Most newer TVs have a set of audio output jacks (red/white). All you need is an adapter like this to plug into those audio output jacks, then plug the speakers into the adapter and you'll be good!

What cable?

Hello geriatric
Happy Holidays
well, difficult sometimes to get some gagets, to this sort of Laptops, BUT, always is a remedy, go ahead and buy a PCMCIA Cretive Labs X-FI card and that FIX the problem for your 5.0 speakers, or montego bay PCMCIA card too, for 5.1 speakers.
