    it is not the speakers (I shifted them around) and I doubt it is the connection. My sound card (Asus) is VERY clearly marked as to color and it is the same color as the logitech cables, orange, green, black, etc. and the instalation comes with specific instructions. Just in case, I did try all other plugging combinations. I do not get sound from the center (red on subwoofer) or back speakers. Only front right and left work.

There are several reasons why there is no sound coming from the rear speakers.

  • Improper connection of the signal cable is a possible reason why there is no sound coming from the rear speakers.

Logitech X-530 Speakers System - 7949.jpg Green connector is for the front left and right channel. Black connector is for the rear left and right channel. Orange connector is for the LFE (Low Frequency Effects) subwoofer and the center channel.

The connectors for the Logitech products are color coded as explained. The connectors on the sound card may not be color coded or a different color coding maybe used depending on the manufacturer of the sound card. Check the manual for the sound card to make sure the correct connector is connected from the Logitech speaker to the sound card.
  • After verifying that the connections are made correctly, the sound card needs to be checked to make sure it is setup correctly. There are many sound card manufacturers so we cannot possibly cover every make and model. We recommend contacting the manufacturer of the sound card to make sure the sound card is setup correctly for use with analog 5.1 speaker systems.
  • When a software DVD player is being used to watch a DVD, the audio output needs to be set to surround sound mode. Please refer to the user manual for the software DVD player to check the settings.
Many DVDs have more than 1 sound format available. Just as the sound card and the software DVD player, the DVD itself has to be set to the correct sound format.
  • Finally you can test to see if the speakers are working correctly by plugging the front channel cable coming from the sound card to the rear channel connector on the subwoofer. If sound comes out of the rear speakers, then there is no problem with the speakers. The problem could be with the software DVD player, or the audio setting on the DVD.
THIS article can be used to test if your speakers are indeed working.

Hope that helps!

Hi .. i have just bought a logitech x 530 speaker and only 2 of the speaker parts work .. can you please give me some solution advice?


Hi names Rui i like to help you by giving you step by step instruction in propely hocking up your logitech speakers:

Instructions

1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.

2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.

3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.

4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.

5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.

6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.

7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.

8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.

9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.

10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...

hope this will help you solve your problem.

I just installed an azuntech 7.1 sound card and i only have front speakers working.I'm using logitech X-530 5.1


You need to connect the Green wire, the black wire and the orange wire. The Green is front speakers the black is rear speakers and the orange is for a center channel. After you have done that you need to go into sound settings for your sound card and make them that way.

Sound not coming out of the rear or center speakers


Sort of confused a bit I understand you buying a new system you say the sound does not come out the rear and centre speakers does the sound come out of any spearkers other than the two you mention if it is then your wirings are wrong if the sound is not coming out of any speakers then its the sound card BUT you will know this immediately you disconnect that system. The sound would be coming out of the laptop ordinaryly? which is it?
