    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.

Will I be able to hook my altec lansing ada745 to my sanyo dp39842


The Sanyo DP39842 only has a digital audio out. You'd need a digital to analog converter, a coaxial digital audio cable, and then an RCA to 3.5 mm audio cable. Here is an example of the audio converter: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-audio-converter/dp/B004C4WPXA .

I hope this helps.

I just got a used set of altec lansing ADA745 computer speakers and can't get power to them. I have never seen computer speakers w/ two wires for input to the computer. I plugged the usual green colored...


https://support.dell.com/support/edocs/acc/ada745/ada745.pdf

That is the setup guide for the speakers.

The two wires plug into a cable that then that single cable plugs into the computer, this way you have sound coming out of the left and right hand speakers.

Where can I download a driver for Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?


HI, maybe theres been a bit of confusion but your Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers shouldn't need any drivers.
Its kind of similar to you plugging in a pair of headphones into your cumputer, they should work just fine.
Are you not getting any sound? Post the details of your PC (is it a dell?)
model number etc... and describe your problem
You probably need audio drivers for your audio device(inside your pc on your motherboard),

Connect Altec Lansing ADA745 to HD TV RCA output for home theater


It won't work like this due to this being a computer only speaker system. It requires the drivers to work with a computer & a Home theater does not recognize the format. Sorry.

Altec Lansing ada745 fuse


It is written on the sub. You can also take it out or look at the spare which is taped to the power cord wall plug. I believe it's T1A 250V fuse
