Question about Logitech X-540 Multimedia Surround Sound Speaker System (6-Piece)

1 Answer

Computer and Speakers

I recently bought these speakers and I didnt realize that I couldn't plug in all the speakers to my macbook pro because i didn't the the green and red inputs/output (whatever), my macbook pro doesnt have any where to plug those cables, so the only thing useful is the sub woofer and two speakers. Is there a way to connect the speakers through an external cable that would then be plugged in my macbook pro? I like the speakers but if I don't have use of all the speakers I could might as well return them and get my money back.

HERE is a link to the Z-540 manual. It should help. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to the "line out" jack on your TV. Do NOT use the black or orange plugs. WIth a 2 channel card like your TV's you will not get sound from the rear speakers unless you enable matrix mode through the remote.

Hope that helps!

Do s-150 usb digital speakers work for mac?


Hi, I had this problem too but thankfully I figured it out after a investigating a few settings. I was very frustrated because the light came on and the buttons would manipulate my MacBook Pro and MacBook sound, but nothing came out of the speakers. Solution:1.) Click on System Preferences, 2.) Choose "Sound", 3.) Select the "Output" button in the middle of the top bar, 4.) in the selectable menu, choose USB (of course your speakers must be plugged in for this to show). Tada! You can even balance the Left and Right speakers in this menu. Hope that works for you too!

Just bought expressionist Ultra, when I plug it into my MacBook Pro no sound comes out.


Click on the Apple icon and look at the sound options in the system preferences. If the Mac does not detect your speakers, you may need to install drivers for them. Try doing that at the Altec Lansing site. Also try the tech support at Altec Lansing and at Apple.

Is there a way to connect my Dell MMS 5650 speakers to a Macbook Pro laptop or a wireless router? Where can I find cables for converting? Thanks!


The speakers should directly connect to the "line-out" socket on your Macbook computer, without any need for adapters.

I have _never_ seen a wireless router that had _any_ "audio" capability -- what you're asking for seems to be unreasonable.

Any "Dollar Store" or the "big-box" stores (such as Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Future Shop, Wal-Mart) should have adapter-cables.

I have Boston Digital BA735 speakers and a MacBook. One of the small speakers plugs in and works good. Is it possible to get the larger one to be compatible?


I reviewed the manual on these speakers and since they are digital speakers, you have to have a sound card that is capable of digital output. I believe that all Macbooks are capable of digital output, so you may not be hooking them up correctly. Here is a link to the Quick Manual for these speakers. Make sure the cables are plugged in as it shows.

Recently bought a Lenovo Lenovo G550 laptop. Can


If I remember correctly, those speakers were supplied with some Gateway computers equipped with a digital soundcard, and the speakers take only digital input.

Take a look at the input plug and compare it to these:

If yours looks like the mono plug, your speakers will only work with the original digital card. Plug them into your new computer and you'll get nothing out of them.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Mm50 as extension from MacBook


Your Logitech MM50 has an auxiliary input that accepts industry standard 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo cables. The Macbook's headphone out jack with the icon of a small set of headphones is the audio out. You will need a male to male cable which is available from Radio Shack for a few dollars.

Logitech z-340 speakers


These speakers just plug into your sound output mini-jack. No "speaker" driver is required, just drivers for your sound card. I'll bet those are already installed.

Speaker problem


Hi, Assuming that the speaker is plug in to the PC and power is also applied to the speaker - If the PC sounds comes out of the headset but not on the speakers, then the speakers are defective. Being new/recently bought, your best course of action would be to bring the unit back for replacement or at least the speakers since trying to repair it would void the warranty. Please remember to bring proof of purchase, warranty card or whatever document(s) are required for this sort of complaint. Good luck and kind regards.
