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 a Macintosh. When I tried to plug in speakers the hole for the plug wasn't deep enough. Pushed it in harder and got the speakers to work. When I unplugged them my computer no longer had sound...


The audio-out jack on the MacBook Pro is a dual-purpose jack: it works with both electrical and optical connectors. (You may occasionally notice a red light leaking out the port—that is the optical circuit.) Because of its construction, it is stiffer than usual when you are inserting a standard electrical headphone jack and binds halfway in (which one could easily describe as feeling "not deep enough"). But because of its internal mechanical complications, it doesn't always reset properly when you remove the plug. This is a known problem with this model of Macintosh. Often inserting and removing the plug a few times will loosen it up enough to restore the speaker contact. If it doesn't, then a trip to an Apple Certified Repair outlet is in order.
If you google "macbook pro audio jack repair", you will find reports from hundreds of people encountering this problem. The actual repair involves a logic board swapout, and can be very costly. My advice would be to get a quote for this, then call Apple Customer Relations and propose that it should be done free for you because it is a clearly documented widespread product defect. The people at Customer Relations are surprisingly liberal and I have had excellent results going this route.

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!

Plug in your external speakers then go to system preferences then sound when in the sound control panel go to the output tab and select the external speakers as the device for sound output and of course at the bottom of the control panel make sure that the mute check box is unchecked and turn up the volume. Hope this helps

IMac won't recognize my external speakers


I had the same problem..... turns out that there is a specific order that you need to plug them in. Disconnect your speakers from usb and from power. Then plug in the Power first. Then plug in the usb connection. They should show up in your sound control panel now.

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.
