Thank you

You need to use audio cable with ministereo phone plug at both ends of the cable, then one end is plugged into the monitor audio line in jack (usually Green color), another end of the cable will be plugged into the audio line out (Green color) of the PC. Set the volume level to about 1/2 way at first and then adjust the volume control panel (Master volume and WAVE level, these two controls affect the sound output feeding the monitor) on the PC.

You can try feeding the monitor with MP3 player first to make sure the monitor speakers are working properly first.

My playstation 3 works find but I don't get any volume when I play my games


Try to determine what exactly is the problem:
Plug a pair of headphones in to your TV. If there is sound then you may have a problem with the TV speakers. If there is no sound then try fiddling with whichever cable you are using to connect your PS3 to the TV (either SCART or HDMI). Make sure each end is properly plugged in. It may be a simple case of a loose connection. If this does not work then switch cables to the cable that you have not yet tried (i.e. if you were using SCART then try HDMI and vice versa). If nothing works still then the most probable problem is that the cable is faulty. Try replacing it or using a different one.

How can i set up the amp alpine model mrd-m1000


The basic steps to set up a car amplifier are these: 1. Disconnect the car battery's negative terminal before doing ANY electrical work on your vehicle. Failing to do so can damage your equipment or cause injury to your person. 2. Determine where you are going to mount your amplifier. This can be in the trunk, on the back of a seat, under a seat, etc. Pick a place with good airflow, otherwise your amp may overheat while playing. 3. Run the ground wire from the mount location to a ground location. The ground location should be a location where you can securely connect the cable to the vehicle chassis, and the connection should be metal-to-metal, without any paint in between. 4. Run the speaker cables to the amp. This means any cables coming directly from subwoofers as well as RCA cables coming from the head unit. Don't forget the remote wire from the head unit. 5. Run the positive (live) power wire directly from the vehicle battery to the amp. You will most likely have to drill through the vehicle firewall in order to get the cable through. 6. Connect the ground wire to the ground location. 7. Connect the speaker wires and remote wire to the amp. Make sure these cables are connected on each end to the proper inputs. 8. Connect the ground wire to the amp. 9. Insert the fuse into the in-line fuse on the live power cable, within 2 feet (24 inches) of the positive terminal connection.If your cable didn't come with an in-line fuse, you will have to buy a fuse separately, strip the power cable, cut it, and insert the fuse in the specified location. 10. Connect the power wire to the amp first, and then to the battery. 11. Power up your system, and play some music!

The problem may be of many reasons. Some of them are : - Bad cable - Speaker not working properly - speaker not connected properly - Driver problem
Check that you have properly connected your speakers to your computer and also check for any cuts or bruises in the cable. Connect your speakers to any other device such as your phone or pmp to check whether the speaker is working. You must also update your sound drivers to the latest version. If the problem still persists you may have to get your motherboard repaired.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

My Tannoy Reveal 5A Powered Monitors are producing a low hum. This is the case when in on or in standby mode, and is the case whether plugged in to an audio cable or not. Could you please assist with some...


Hi,low hum from monitor speakers are usually when there is not shield connected to the cables your using for connections. Also it might be from the power light,if there is no earth or ground connected before connecting the power source in that room.

So you will need to check the cabling properly and check how the (sleeve, tip and ring) are connected and also check the power outlet,if the (red,black and yellow or white) are connected properly.

after checking those if they are OK,that means the fault will be from the speaker itself.\

Just do a proper troubleshooting.

Thanks for using fixya.....

depending on how many speaker you intend to run will determine the type of amp you will need.  Set the output on the source unit to optical out.   Connect the optical cable to the amp.  Connect the speakers to amp.  turn them all on and select the iput of the source unit on the amp and enjoy.
good luck

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.
