I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

Connecting an Altec Lansing ADA995 subwoofer system to a stereo


I have this exact Altec Lansing speaker system and I'm currently just using it with my Dell computer. But, I know you don't have to install these speakers to any high powered receiver for good sound quality. The subwoofer has two separate 200 watt RMS combined amplifiers built in for it's single knob controlled dual 6.5" bass drivers and 2-way magnetically shielded satellites, which are amplified together by any source that has an analog or digital volume control. The speakers act as a preamp receiver to any volume or frequency tone level controlled audio source. These input sources can also equalize the speakers receiving input signal for bass, treble or mid-range adjustments. You only need to obtain the proper adapter to hook up all the speakers to your desired component or device. Besides a computer, for example a TV with a variable audio out function or a mp3 player will work. The adapter that i am referring to is similar to what is included with certain 5.1 Logitech brand computer and multimedia speakers specifying gaming console and TV connecting. It has all three color coded 1/8" connector inputs on one end and RCA jack outputs on the other. This can be purchased more easily online then offline at stores such as Ebay for a fairly inexpensive price. However this adapter will not decode true 5.1 surround, but instead give a 5 channel stereo effect. I guess if one was looking for an inexpensive alternative solution to purchasing traditional high end home entertainment audio equipment, the ADA 995s are one of few computer speaker models in my book that can do a decent job.

Philips DVP 3256 has 6 outputs which takes in RCA connectors
Altec lansing VS3251 has 3 STEREO outputs.
Buy 3 nos of STEREO (female) to RCA (male) cables

2. Connect the Altec's black wire to second stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Rear left and Rear right
3. Connect the Altec's orange wire to third stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Centre/Sub woofer. Interchange RCA ends if the Subwoofer sounds dull.

Good Luck

Cannot connect my surround sound altec lansing system to my compu


The first thing you can do is go to www.retrevo.com to download the manual. Secondly all you have to do is match the colors of the wires to the imports in the back. You have five speakers. Two have gray wires, two have red and one has blue. If you also notice each speaker has two wires. One a solid color, the other striped with black. For instance, put the solid red wire into the red import and the red wire with the black stripe into the black import. Repeat this with all the other wires. The easiest way to hook it up to your computer or laptop is to take one of the aux wires (the wires with the yellow/green/black tips). It doesn't matter which one. Put into you headphone import on your computer or laptop. Then put the other side into the Aux on the subwoofer. Located on the front. Turn on the power on the back. Then hit the aux button on the remote. That should work....

If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
