Question about Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I have Altec Lansing multimedia computer speaker system ACS45.1 which includes a subwoofer. Purchased in 2006 and I have been very pleased with them. However at the moment only one of the small speakers works. The other one appears to have a loose connection as when I jiggle the lead that goes into the back of the speaker, it sometimes appears to reconnect and work briefly. You need a special tool to undo the connection which I do not have. Is it worth trying to track down a repair person or should I give up now and buy new speakers?

Well your speakers are four years old and maybe its worth the change if you enjoy the thrilling souds of 5.1. Its your choice but if you are buying just consider Altec Lansing VS5231 it had an excellent value for money but there are plenty of good models available i just suggested it because i purchased it and i am very satisfied with its performance it has a very good bang for the buck. But its purely your choice decide what to do

I have an older altec multimedia 3 pc. computer speaker system my software has been damaged and I need drivers the subwoofer is a ACS160 and the speakers are ACS55


These speakers should work as long as your computer has the drivers for the sound card. I need to know what sound card you have, make and model of the computer, and the operating system; in order to direct you to the driver download. If you know of a computer with an operational sound card, test them on it. The speakers are passive devices - they don't need drivers to operate.

I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

Connecting an Altec Lansing ADA995 subwoofer system to a stereo


I have this exact Altec Lansing speaker system and I'm currently just using it with my Dell computer. But, I know you don't have to install these speakers to any high powered receiver for good sound quality. The subwoofer has two separate 200 watt RMS combined amplifiers built in for it's single knob controlled dual 6.5" bass drivers and 2-way magnetically shielded satellites, which are amplified together by any source that has an analog or digital volume control. The speakers act as a preamp receiver to any volume or frequency tone level controlled audio source. These input sources can also equalize the speakers receiving input signal for bass, treble or mid-range adjustments. You only need to obtain the proper adapter to hook up all the speakers to your desired component or device. Besides a computer, for example a TV with a variable audio out function or a mp3 player will work. The adapter that i am referring to is similar to what is included with certain 5.1 Logitech brand computer and multimedia speakers specifying gaming console and TV connecting. It has all three color coded 1/8" connector inputs on one end and RCA jack outputs on the other. This can be purchased more easily online then offline at stores such as Ebay for a fairly inexpensive price. However this adapter will not decode true 5.1 surround, but instead give a 5 channel stereo effect. I guess if one was looking for an inexpensive alternative solution to purchasing traditional high end home entertainment audio equipment, the ADA 995s are one of few computer speaker models in my book that can do a decent job.

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.
