Question about RCA WSP150 Main / Stereo Speaker

WSP150 speakers don't work on new computer

Have had WSP150 speakers for several years and they worked fine on my Gateway computer (and still will), along with two other sets of speakers using a three-way splitter. They will not work on my new Dell computer regardless of how I connect them. I have tried every combination of speakers possible and none work. I put them back on my old computer and they work fine.
What am I missing?

The bass in my Sony 3-way 6X9 speakers wont work


if these speakers are several years old, chances are that the left one is just blown. could be a loose wire, but if not, it would be cheaper to get new speakers than to get that one fixed

I need a transmitter for a set of rca wsp150 WIRELESS SPEAKERS. CAN I SUBSTITUTE? Where can I buy one?


head phone set WHP141 will work with that set of speakers, look on Ebay
I have a set of the same speakers.... make sure that your transmitter is actually bad, it does not power up with the GREENLIGHT staying ON UNTIL the sound source is hooked up and has enough INCOMING volume to trigger the transmitter on.........

Can i use my boston 5.1 speakers with a powered sub with my new computer system.it used soundblaster software?


The speakers themselves don't care what you have them connected to. They just take an audio input from the computer, which is a function of the computer's sound card and drivers. As long as the computer hardware is working properly, the speakers will too.

There is one possible problem, though. If these speakers came with your computer as part of a Gateway system package several years ago, they may be a digital-input version only. Gateway supplied these speakers and a Creative Soundblaster card that had a digital output was installed in the computer. The way to tell on your speakers is to look at the plug on the end of the cable. Which of the two below looks like yours?

If it's the one on the left, you can use the speakers with any analog sound source (computer, iPod, etc.). But if looks like the one on the right (a mono plug), you have the digital speakers. Unless the sound card in your new computer has digital output available, the speakers won't work. In the past, I was able to put the original sound card and drivers into someone's new computer and it worked, but the original software is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7.

Hope this helps you get it figured out. Thanks for using Fixya!

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working


Seems to me the speaker is just plain broken. You'll need a new one, contact your vendor for repairs, or you will have to live with using external speakers/earpieces...

I hope you will get your replacement,

Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working


Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

RCA wsp150 wirelss speakers


Jim, just about any generic power supply will work, so long as you match the output and polarity.  There should be a label on the old supply with the voltage and Amps (milliamps, actually), and a circle-in-a-circle with a + or - that tells you the polarity. 
If you're not sure enough to just buy one from Target, spend an extra buck or two at Radio Shack.  Bring in the old one and ask for a replacement.  You may end up with an adjustable adapter with interchangeable tips, but it will work just fine.  Sometimes the mA are a little different, but that should be okay, so long as it meets the minimum requirement on the label.
I have a pair of these running my WSP 250's.
