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!

Won't work with new computer


I would suggest going to START>Control Panel>Sound HQ(or something similar, like Sounds and Audio Devices etc). From this point youll want to make sure, under the Sounds or Output tab, that your Boston Acoustics are selected. If theyre not listed, try to pick whatever it is your plugging into(Say a jack thats on the computer, look for something like "Internal Port" or "Dell Ports" for your computer name.) Please PM or send me an email if the problem persists

Trouble with rear speakers


This may be a software issue. If you only had two speakers before, the software will not use the rear speakers.
Go to Control Panel. Click on "Sound and Audio Devices". Under the Volume Tab, at the bottom, you will see a picture roughly representing the type of speakers.
Click on the Advanced button.
Click on the arrow in the pick box, and choose Surround Speakrs or the 5.1 Speakers.
Click Okay. Try the speakers again.

Boston Acoustics Computer Speakers no sound


This speaker system requires a digital audio input, which most older systems don't have. The sound card that was built into your Gateway can put out either a digital or analog signal depending on how you have it set. Chances are your new sound card might be able to output in digital mode as well, but you may have to turn it on manually. Try double-clicking your volume icon in your system tray, then click the "advanced" button at the bottom left. This should bring up a window that lets you adjust the treble and bass, but it should also give you an "other options" area that lets you turn on digital output. If your new card supports digital output, the option should be there. If the card does not support it, you will have to use a different card. I hope this helps.
