Connecting Dell speaker system to TV or console

Hi Coldcut,

I have a Dell Home Speaker System MMS 5650 that I would like to use to hook up to my new Sharp HD TV or my XBox 360 console, for HD Movies. The hook up for the speaker system is a 3 to 1 (green, yellow, black to a single green that hooks into the back of my cpu).
I can either hook up a regular RCA ( white and red) to the XBox/TV or I can try to use the optical or coaxial.

Can you help me by telling me what kind of adapter I can use to do this?
I would really appreciate the help...

Javier

Hello,

If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.

Hope this gets you going.

My speakers are not working. When I open itunes it says. iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration audio/video playback may not operate properly. I recently used some software 'Magix...


http://support.creative.com/
This is Creative's support link. The speakers you have are Dell. Do you have a sound card installed? If you have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of screen, does it have a red X? Right click on it then, click on playback devices. A window should open with your device. Does anything show up and if it does does it show it "working"? Right click on it and a window should open and you should see "enable" or "disable", if it shows enable, click on that and exit. If you are still ahving problems with this let me know at "add a comment"

Dell 5650 Speakers on Gateway DX4200


the speakers should have a stereo jack on a wire which would be the out put, if it is a surround sound speaker system then it most likely will have a few wires, if your computer has only one stereo jack input then the green cable would be the one you would connect in most cases, if it has 3 or 6 then you would follow the colour on the jacks and match them up with the input on your computer. if you have done all this and doesnt work check if there is audio icon in the bottom left task bar and if you can use other speakers, if you can everthing should work, if not then check for drivers online.

Dell 5650 speaker wire adapter


As I understand it, this adapter is used ONLY to adapt a standard 2-channel stereo output to the 3, 1/8" plugs of the Dell 5650 5.1 system. These 3 plugs would normally plug into the front, rear, and center/sub outputs on a computer designed to output 5.1 channel sound.

To make this clear, what this means is that the output you get from your 2-channel stereo system, using this adapter with the Dell 5650 5.1 system, will NOT be full 5.1 surround sound...it will be 2-channel stereo signals intermixed so that it plays from the 5650 system through the Dell amplifiers and speakers...nothing more.

This cannot be over-emphasized. The adapter does NOT create true 5.1 sound from a 2-channel stereo output system.

If you are hoping to get true 5.1 output from a 2-channel stereo system, you will be disappointed.

All this adapter likely does is split/mix some of the 2-channel signal into the rear channel, and split/mix some of the SAME 2-channel signal into the center-sub channel, just so you will get some output from those speakers. There may be some low-pass filtering for the sub-woofer input.

It is almost certainly a very simple passive circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and possibly an audio transformer or two.

Look for circuit on Do-It-Yourself electronic sites and build it yourself...or you're almost certain to be ripped-off.
