Need a 3.5 mm audio cable adapter that originally came with this speaker set. It is an 3 to 1 adapter, meaning you connect the green, black and orange inputs into the adapter than turns into 1 black...

Your speakers are for a 5.1 sound system, thats why you have the diffrent channels (green, black & orange). Ideallly you need a sound card that can give you this output and the motherboard will be having those same colours as well.

If your PC did not hvave this, then you should not have spent your money on such expensive spaekers.

In the mean time just use the green connector and you should have a few of your speakers and the subwoofer playing.

Sorry about that mate.

Hook your green and orange wires off the speakers into green and orange inputs on the back of your tower. Hook the round black cable off the a/c adaptor plug into the black input on the back of the right speaker. Then plug into an outlet. There is no software for these speakers.

I've hooked up all the speakers. NOTE: I didn't read the instructions, as they are lost and I recently moved. I'm sure everything is right, I've read on here about this problem. I have the pea-green,...


Lime green (pea-green) is front speakers.
Orange is for center speakers and sub-woofer.
Black is for rear speakers.

Pink is for microphone in.
Blue is for line in (MIDI or similar).

I just installed an azuntech 7.1 sound card and i only have front speakers working.I'm using logitech X-530 5.1

You need to connect the Green wire, the black wire and the orange wire. The Green is front speakers the black is rear speakers and the orange is for a center channel. After you have done that you need to go into sound settings for your sound card and make them that way.

You'll only be able to get true surround sound utilizing all the speakers if you have a sound card with multiple outputs (usually color coded as Green, Black, and Orange). Plug the satellite speakers into the subwoofer and run the three input wires (Green, Black, Orange) to your multi-source output.
If you only have one output on your PC (common), you should just connect the green wire and press the "matrix" button on the system. This will just duplicate the sound output into the other channels but is not "real" surround sound.
Hope that helps.

Well you have some options, you can either live with 2 speakers and change the settings back to default. Im assuming the colors you have are orange black and green. black= the surround sound speakers. orange= center and subwoofer. green=right left front

Now if u want true surround sound then you need to buy a new card that had all the ports for your speakers.
