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.

Re: Computer and Speakers
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!

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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
