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.

Rear Speakers do not sound, other 2 do, and boofer - 7949.jpgGreen 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!

I don't know which port in the back of the Pavilion to connect the black wire from the speakers (that connect to the right speaker with red and white ends). Any ideas? They are labeled as side, rear...


To get "surround" sound, when you face the computer, you will have:
* 2 front speakers, one immediately on each side of the computer
* 2 side speakers, one on each side of your head
* 2 rear speakers, one behind each side of your head

Thus, when the sound is of a jet-plane coming towards your face,
you'll first hear the sound in the front speakers,
then in the side speakers,
and finally in the rear speakers,
to produce a sound-effect of the jet passing over your head, and going "behind" you.

Usually, for "front" speakers, one speaker connects to the other speaker, and the second speaker connects to the "FRONT-audio-output" connector on your sound-card.

For side speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-side-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-side-audio-output port.

For rear speakers, one speaker will connect to the LEFT-rear-audio-output port,
and one speaker will connect to the RIGHT-rear-audio-output port.

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 sound coming out of z-5500


To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.
