The 18volt dc power suply goes to the Sub.
The Orange plug goes the Sub. (this color choice was a bac one for Altec to have used!)
The remaining plug goes to the speaker out on your computer {the most common color on the computer is Green) The plug from the speaker may be either white or green.
Now you will also need a driver installed. I payed a web sight for updates to all my drivers ($30). I may have a nother solution to share with others who need this driver in a week or two.

Good Luck.

How do i hook up logitech speakers #z313 to my desktop i need a diagram


Phone jack on woofer goes into computer tower (should be color coded green) and power cable on woofer plugs into 120VAC. Speaker phone jack plugs into back of woofer. The speaker cable has an on-off switch and volume control as well as a phone jack for your headset.

I want to install a self powered woofer and tap it to the rear speakers. Can you please tell me what are the colors and polarity of the rear speaker wires for 2006 Honda odyssey right hand drive


FIRST OF ALL --- THERE IS A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HOOKING UP
A WOOFER LIKE THIS ---- IS THIS A STORE BOUGHT POWERED SUB WOOFER ? DOES IT HAVE IT'S OWN CROSSOVER BUILT INSIDE ?? I WOULD GUESS IT NEEDS TO BE HOOKED
UP TO A SUB WOOFER OUTPUT FOUND ON THE BACK OF THE IN DASH PLAYER ..
THE WOOFER NEEDS TO RECEIVE ONLY LOW FREQUENCY AUDIO WHICH MOST OF THE NEWER CAR STEREOS PROVIDE BY AN RCA JACK ON A SHORT WIRE COMING OUT OF THE STEREO ...
IF YOU TRY AND TAP IT TO FULL RANGE SPEAKERS THAT ALREADY ARE CONNECTED TO AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL THE SOUND WILL BE DISTORTED .......
POWERED SUB WOOFERS NEED A LINE LEVEL INPUT WHICH IS MUCH LOWER THAN SAY
SPEAKERS ALREADY RECEIVING AN AMPLIFIED SIGNAL.
POWERED WOOFER WILL ALSO NEED TO HAVE A 12 VOLT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AND A GROUND WIRE TO OPERATE THE AMPLIFIER BUILT INSIDE.
IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TYPE OF HOOK UP I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND SOMEONE WHO DOES [ CAR AUDIO SHOP ]

I have a subwoofer can i hook up to computer speakers


Yes you can. cut the left speaker lead and splice a wire from it to your sub woofer. If its a powered woofer you may have too much gain going in, You don't say what kind of sub it is or weather or not its a "powered" unit. If its a powered woofer (built in amp) you should take the output directly from the computer output (buy a 1/8 in male to 2 1/8 in female connector, send one output to your original speakers and the left side of the second output to the sub woofer. you can usually adjust the level of the sub (if powered) with a control on the unit. if you need more help, contact me but please tell me more about what you have.

Two speakers hum noise


Very doubtful that hum issue is ground potential difference from multiple power outlets as power cord is not grounding type (it is transformer isolated). I do agree that it is good practice to connect all audio equipment to common power strip though, especially with pro sound. Check the audio cords connecting your speakers to the coumputer sound card: 1) Make sure they are connected to the correct jacks and plugged in all the way, 2) wipe the connectors off with a clean paper towel wetted with a smidge of WD-40, 3) replace cords if all else fails. I have also seen solder joints fail on the power supply capacitors (due to vibration) causing hum -- but leave this repair to an electronics technician due to dangerous voltages.

How do i hook up two altec lansing speakers and


Depending on the sound card installed in your system, integrated into the motherboard or not, you may need a "Y" splitter adapter. Typically, the subwoofer has a black plug while the regular speakers have a green plug. The red color is a new one on me, but let's assume that it is the subwoofer. If you have a black outlet on your computer, plug the red one into that outlet.

If your speakers came with your system, HP would have provided you with proper adapters to make the speakers work for whichever speaker system you have. If you have any "Y" adapters, use them.

How do I hook up a non powered sub woofer on my htr-5630?


You will need an amplifier or 2 channel receiver. Hook the sub out rca jack to the rca inputs on this new amp or receiver and hook the speaker terminals on sub to speaker terminals on same amp or receiver. Your Yamaha receiver doesn't have any power for a passive sub.Just pick up any old fairly high powered receiver for fifty dollars and you're good to go.I use old dolby pro logic receivers as they are a dime a dozen today. Good luck.

Won't work after re-installing Boston speakers


would try it with the correctly rated fuse as there may not be enough wattage / current to power the bass unit with a thin wire.

Also how long ago was it flooded as it may take quite a while in a warm area to dry off completely ?

Connecting speakers to Computer


In most cases the woofer plugs into the speaker which contains the power adapter plug, the green plug goes into the PC's audio out (usually a green plug on the back of the unit). When the USB is plugged into the machine the OS should plug and play the new hardware and may ask you to insert a driver disc if applicable.

After the OS has identified the new hardware and installed it you should be able to test additional audio out plugs if you are unable to hear sound from your first choice (again, ideally the green plug). There should also be a line out plug which may work for your purposes also.

If you are still having issues please post the model of your speakers so that we may look them up...

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp


This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Subwoofer.......


Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
