    the sound card is working fine - I have checked it with other device. I just posted an additon - I hooked up a cd player to amp and still did not get a signal (db meter on amp - no lights) from amp. As stated I have been moving things around a lot and don't know if I have hit the wrong button or the amp just went bad or something came loose. As said, it was working a couple of days before - had to unhook speakers and then it quit ???? Thanks in advance

Check your sound cards line out in the sound properties. The level could be turned down or the line out could be muted. If you have checked this verify that your amp is working by connecting another source input to your amp. Good luck.

Insert in the green out of the computer a head phone or something to check if you have signal out ...if there is non...click on the speaker icon in the task-bar (right ) and see if it is not muted ...if there is no speaker icon at all..just reinstall the sound driver ..and it will be ok ...
anyway ...first try to see if there is any signal going out by inserting another speaker or a headphone ...in that green out in the back of the computer ...

I have an Onkyo TXNR609 home theater receiver hooked up to a 6 speaker surround sound setup in the living room. I also have 2 speaker pairs outside - one on the downstairs patio and one upstairs. I was...


If you haven't done already, then verify that zone 2 works without the selector. If the speakers definitely work and the zone output definitely works then the speaker selector must be the culprit! It's pretty difficult to mess up the wiring with speakers, as even if polarity is reversed, you will still hear something.

List of recommended receivers for the 901 speakers


Hello,first off they are great,natural sounding speakers.They can handle quite a bit of power and if you like it loud you will need it,because they arent going to put out serious db until they get to approx 50 watt rms.I would look into recievers that put out a true 20-20khz 150 watts per channel.At that level you will have the power and headroom needed for almost any demand.Models and features vary ,but brand quality and durability rarely do. My favorite brands are,yamaha ,denon,marantz,onkyo and integra ..What they offer at about there 1200 dollar price point will be more than enough.

Sound does not work. I have not been able to get the speakers to work, nor headphones when they are plugged into the monitor


We need to find first if the problem is in the monitor or in the sound card in the PC (hopefully you have the audio cable hooked up correctly, Green audio line out of PC goes to green audio line in of the monitor). Try feeding it with MP3 player or sound source to see if you get the sound or not and go from there, please post back. If it is bad amplifier in the monitor, you will be better off putting money toward Good powered speakers that will have 100% better sound than the tiny speakers inside the monitor that sound like tinned can.

JBL Pro Computer Speakers....


hi,

I believe your old sound card may be of higher quality than your new one, I had the same problem years ago what I did was this, I ran my speakers through an old dedicated dubbing cassette player out of an old kenwood stack stereo then into the computer, the cassette has a mild adjustable preamp when in record, you will have to put the deck on record the rest of the time with a blank tape- any old cassete deck will work.(thrift store) and your going to need a couple parts from radio shack. If you have the know how I suggest switching the audio cards out, drivers etc and / or seeing if you can have them both plugged in without an issue. If issue then try cassette then call and complain to the computer company for installing sub standard equipment.

computer audio output-> line in cassette->line out cassette-> line to speaker input

good luck

Setup problem


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
