    The polk audio speakers are part of my old comp set and they have an orange/peach coloured jack that is supposed to go into the back of the HP tower. I had a green jack ( I'm not sure what you mean by audio card) that I plugged into the monitor, and the other end into the desktop tower but that didn't work either. I even had the green line running from the monitor to the tower and the speakers (orange) plugged into the tower and *that* didn't work either. There's no driver to go with the speakers, They are just small piddly speakers that come with the original pc I think the driver was already loaded onto that comp and there's none on the new pc. I plugged everything and restarted the comp and still no luck.ARGH!

To get sound you have to take the signal using a 3.2 jack cable from the back of the desktop ..(from the audio card -the green out ) and insert the cable into the audio input of the Polk audio ...For to work ..this audio system need to have an amplifier built in (im not familiar with the model , but I assume that it is something you can amplify other devices like an Ipod or mp3) ..
thi sone needs to be powered ...and the signal you take from the green out (or from the headphones green ) need to go exact in the same input where you attach another device a mp3 or so ...and will work ..
Be sure you have audio driver installed into the computer ..and the volumes are lifted ..and it is not on mute ..

    you didn't understood me ..
    I was talking about the audio driver of the hp computer ..In order to have to have what to take out to the speakers...the audio card of the computer need to be installed.....
    you do not need a driver for speakers..if they are like you said means that they have a volume button on them there it is a amplifier on them ...already ..
    The audio card is the one with small jacks inputs on it the back of the computer ...if it is a simple one ..or on board one ..usually have 3 jack (3.2-normal jack ) inputs..a orange -pink ...a green ..and a black one ..
    the normal configuration green (middle) is the stereo output ..and in there you have to plug the order to have sound..
    the orange -pink the edge is ,,the microphone -in ..and the black it is the auxiliary ..BUT!!!!!!! in some computers the configuration can be made wrong or deliberately twisted for some reason ..the output with the signal can be from any of them if the wires are inverted inside..
    MY advice ..:
    first look at the computer in the task bar the right side..and see if you have a volume icon (speaker like ) ..and a HD or audio manager (sometimes called sound effect )
    if those 2 are present ..than it means that your audio card of the computer is ..what you have to do click on the speaker like one ...and raze up the volume to the max...and check the case not to be ticked muted ...
    after that open one player with some song in it ..and let it run ..
    plug the speakers (Polk) in the power supply .. turn them on ...raze the volume ..and the jack that you mentioned..plug it in the back of the computer all outlets one by one find out which one is the signal out ..(should be the green middle on e)
    If you have an audio card installed ..than you will have audio on board...and another set on the card below...Lets hope you have just one audio card on the computer ..
    If you do not manage ...and you have the volume and sound manager icons..than you can try to get the signal from the front panel (green ) where the head phones are usually plugged..Its the same thing ..

Passive radiator speaker wiring

Passive Radiators are not driven by the amp. They have no voice coil and no power goes to them. They are used to enhance the bass or lower frequencies in a speaker system. They work by utilizing the back pressure that a driver (woofer) produces. When a woofer produces sound, it moves forward and backwards inside the speaker cabinet. This backward motion is what drives the passive radiator. So in order for the passive radiator to work, it would have to be placed in speaker cabinet along with a woofer that is hooked up to an audio amp.

Speakrs don't work on new HP Pavilion desktop.

If you're using Windows XP, go to the Control Panel, then double-click on Sound, then go to the Audio tab and make sure the playback device is set to your Realtek output.

If you're using Windows Vista, go to Control Panel and click on Hardware and Sound, then click on Sound. Make sure your Realtek device is selected with a green check mark. If it isn't, just click on it and then click the Set as Default button down below. Vista sound configuration is kinda quirky, and it does do some kind of detection when you plug a cable into an audio jack, so you might leave this screen up while you plug your speakers into the green audio jack in the sound card and see if it pops anything weird up.

No sound from back speakers

Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.

Polk audio ext speakers on hp pavilion no sound, worked fine the other day?

OK... I was just going crazy looking for the same solution. I had let the Verizon guy hook everything up for me (It's a desktop) after I changed offices. He hooked up the plug to match the color of an input on the computer, but he had plugged it into the WRONG one.. heheh... If you have access to the back of your computer - be sure it's plugged in correctly there. (Other plug ins I tried gave me very low sound) My computer - an HP pavillion has two orange inputs - not near each other - but the other one has a little pic of speaker. (LOL).... or (CQ - chuckle quietly)...
