Question about Boston Acoustics (BA7800) Computer Speakers

Open Question

I have the boston ba7800 speaker system. The main speaker with the volume controls on it also have the cords that go to the subwoofer. The blue control cord has tiny prongs on it like an old mouse hook up and they are bent so that I can't plug the control cord into the subwoofer there for making my speaker system useless. So I need to either find a new cord and rewire to the old speakers or get a new main speaker with the controls. I have no idea of how to get the replacement parts or anything. Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: adapting Boston Acoustics BA7800 for use with TV

Here's what you need:

http://www.vpi.us/cable-audio.html

Scroll down to the 3.5mm Stereo Jack / RCA Plug x 2 Y-Cable

Converts your TRS connectors to dual RCA plugs. You said you have 3 TRS connectors. Does the TV have 3 sets of RCA plugs you can use with this? If not, you may not be able to get full surround sound, just stereo sound, from your TV - and you'll need some RCA splitters to plug two (or three) cables into one port. I know you can get those at Radio Shack.

I would not suggest it. PC speakers generally have their own amplifier built into the system and will not handle the power from a home system well.

SOURCE: Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?

Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

How do I take apart a Boston Acoustics BA7800 subwoofer?


If you've undone the 8 screws on the back panel... I would suggest the only thing holding it in is..... it's an interference fit... try carefully prising it out.

Trouble with rear speakers


This may be a software issue. If you only had two speakers before, the software will not use the rear speakers.
Go to Control Panel. Click on "Sound and Audio Devices". Under the Volume Tab, at the bottom, you will see a picture roughly representing the type of speakers.
Click on the Advanced button.
Click on the arrow in the pick box, and choose Surround Speakrs or the 5.1 Speakers.
Click Okay. Try the speakers again.

No expert solution here - just a suggestion. Did you check the 9-amp fuse below the "Out to PC" connection on the subwoofer?

Speakers have no sound.


Have you tried other speakers? If so did they work? You might try updating the sound card drivers.
