    This just happened to me (2/17/12), same Altec Lansing ADA-745 speakers/subwoofer. The back of the subwoofer has a label which reads 'T1A-250V' type fuse. This means a 1-amp, 250V fuse. I found a 4-pack of these at Radio Shack for about $3.19. Important: purchase the 'Fast Acting' fuse (not the Slow-Acting also offered). I pulled out the old fuse from the subwoofer, replaced with the new one from Radio Shack, and YEAAAA power to speaker system, green light on speaker and all works great! These speakers are so outstanding, it's worth a try (and $150 if you can find an old set), so Good luck!

    IMPORTANT UPDATE TO MY POST: I just discovered that I had it backwards, you need to purchase the 'Slow-Blow' type NOT the Fast-Acting as I previously mention. Sorry for any inconvenience. I found this out the hard way, the fast-acting lasted a couple of hours, then they started burning out. I went back to Radio Shack, got a pack of 'Slow-Blow' type, and have not had a problem since! So: for this speaker system: buy 1-amp, 250V 'Slow-Blow'. Been rocking to Led Zeppelin ever since! Again, sorry for the bad information.

How can I splice Altec Lansing amplified speaker system 221 to ac power supply cord instead of the computer cord


Not a good idea. The receptacle that the computer cord plugs into has EMI filters in it. Bypassing it would cause an AC hum that you'd never be able to get rid of.

Missing cord to speaker to speaker, what dose it look like?


According to the owner's manual, the 'speaker to speaker' cable is not removable. The speaker to computer cable is.
It's a 6' 3.5mm stereo to 3.5mm stereo cables such as this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Link-Depot-AUDIO-6-35MM-Link-Depot-3.5mm-Male-to-Male-Audio-Cable-6/15779608

Altec Lansing VS4121 speakers stopped working for no reason????


I had a similar set and they drove me mad because they hissed when they were switched off. I bought a pair of Bowers and Wilkins MM1 instead. Fabulous.

If you want yours fixed you would have to take them to an electronics engineer or return them.

Hello Asconn

Bad board, inside of your speaker system, time to RMS or use the warranty, if you register your product, this could be easy.
Some boards , depending on energy at home voltage, etc, can be damage, and sometimes fried the board, for a energy fluctuation. Consider to use warranty, or RMS, in this case.
