This may be obvious, but have you plugged your computer audio output into another speaker to make sure it works? You have to make sure you turn the iM9 volume up as well as the volume on your PC audio. The AUX input "mixes" with iPod audio, so you can leave the iPod in the dock, however, you should turn it off when playing music through the AUX port.

My Altec lansing multi media ada 745 just stopped working all of a sudden. It doesn't work for all media ie. ipod, tv, computer. We can hardly hear it. I changed the fuse but it still doesn't work. Wh


unplug the power from the speakers, reseat the all the connections for the satellite speakers, ensure the power switch on both the subwoofer and the Right Front Speaker are in the ON position.

If that doesn't resolve the issue, then you are most likely going to need to replace the speakers, as the fuse is the only serviceable componet.

Ive just brought my computer and it came with altec lansing serious 100 speakers im not sure how to set them up?


There should be a green color cable (3.5mm in size) coming out of one of the speakers. That cable connects to the green color port in the back of the computer.

If your still having trouble please comment back with the model of the speakers... Altec Lansing Series 100 Model ??? and brand name and model of the computer. If it's not a brand name computer but a generic PC, then the brand name and model of the motherboard.

I have Altec Lansing Speakers. They were working fine Saturday. I just tried to use them for class and now I am not geting any sound. I checked all the wires and they are all plugged in. I am getting no...


There are many models of Altec speakers, which do you have?

Most computer speakers include built-in amplifiers, volume and
tone controls, remote, audio processing, cross over networks...
etc.

These are sophisticated electronics devices, not the passive
speaker boxes of the 1970's

If any of the internal electronics, or even the internal power supply are fried, they will not work.

But don't miss the obvious:

1) Double check not only the cables, but also the audio-card
software settings.

Most new audio cards have programmable inputs and outputs,
some automatically detect what is connected to them.

Make sure that the settings are correct.

2) Make sure that the Audio card is not set for digital output
with analog speakers or vice versa.

3) Check the Windows mixer/volume control, or the mixer applet
that came with your audio card (or motherboard) to make
sure that the audio output is not MUTED or attenuated
anywhere in the audio path.

4) Make sure the Windows Vista DRM is not getting in the way.
(try non-protected audio files)

5) Finally try your speakers on another computer.

6) If the speakers are analog, connect them to the "LINE-OUT"
output of your home stereo to confirm if they are defective.

(This may require an RCA plug to miniature stereo adapter)

7) If the speakers are determined to be dead, phone ALTEC
tech support, insist on speaking to an engineering manager,
complain and make your self sound very important...

They may send you a free replacement.


I have found the ALTEC staff to be exceptionally helpful and
professional. On one occasion, they have acknowledged an
inherent design problem with a particular speaker model,
and sent me a more expensive replacement under warranty.

There are very few companies as GOOD as ALTEC, when it
comes to customer service.

How do i hook up Altec Lansing AVS500 speakers to my computer


Hello sweetnikki1,

The Altec Lansing AVS500 are 4.1 channel speakers, meaning 4 speakers (front, rear and 2 satellites) and a subwoofer.

1. 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 satellite cords are similarly color coded. The output from the sub to the front right satellite is a heavy-duty cable that immediately stands out from the rest. This cable is thicker because the right front speaker has most of the system controls on it: power, volume, and surround volume. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter 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. 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, on the left side are the sub level control, the AC jack, satellite outs, and a sound mode switch. With this switch you decide between Gaming and Stereo. In Stereo mode, the normal stereo signal is sent to both the fronts and the rears. In Gaming mode, the speakers use the four-channel signal from your soundcard. Hence if you just hav the regular sound card, do not connect the satellite speakers and use Stereo mode.

3. 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.

Hope this helps..
