$150 wireless speaker

I just recently bought a new CD/home entertainment system and it doesn't have an extra set of the red/white (L/R) audio ports to plug my Brookstone wireless transmitter into. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

How do you setup the speakers?


you will need to connect your speakers to your computer then you will need to install them to your computer if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar

then you are ready to position your speakers if you have more than 2 you might need to select stereo
Speakers can be placed on floor stands, hung on wall brackets, or placed on furniture. Subwoofers typically sound best in room corners or near the left- or right-front speakers.
The front three--left, center, and right--speakers usually sound best when positioned with their tweeters elevated to the same height as a seated listener's ears. In any case, try to keep the center speaker near the same height as the left and right speakers.
You can place speakers on shelves or on/in a low cabinet or entertainment center. Some speakers are better suited to this arrangement than others. "Acoustic suspension" sealed satellites are the most appropriate. Next best are ported speakers--as long as the ports are located on the front of the cabinet. However, speakers with rear-mounted ports won't perform at their peak when placed inside a piece of furniture.
As for the rear-channel surround speakers, they usually sound best when positioned three or more feet higher than the front speakers. However, high-fidelity DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD music will sound best when surround speakers are placed at the same height (ear level) as the front speakers.
Hope this helps

Hi, I bought recently a new 5.1 Surround Sound System Logitech X-530 and want to connect it to our new LCD LG 32LD450 HD TV. The LG TV has apart from all Digital, Optical and RCA Connections as well one...


You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.

The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.

I cannot get sound from Insignia Speaker ND-POS20?


Speaker Placement Before shopping for speakers, try to imagine where you're going to put them in your room. Speakers can be placed on floor stands, hung on wall brackets, or placed on furniture. Subwoofers typically sound best in room corners or near the left- or right-front speakers.

Hi, i am looking for a 5.1 or higher model in Altec Lansing home theate for my PC, Is there a need for extra sound card if i am getting the Altec home theatre? please can you help me with this.


You don't need more than one sound card, although if your sound card doesn't support 5.1 audio (it will need the green, the orange, and the black ports) then you will need a new sound card to be your main source of audio. You can find them pretty cheap at most electronic stores, and they're relatively easy to install. Hope this helps

Can I hook up my ada 885 to my dvd player& my flatscreen tv?


Yes. They are essentially Similar to any other 120 Watt Surround System for Home Entertainment. The Fact is, the only major difference is that the connections are different. On The PC it uses Stereo Standard Outputs. On Your DVD Player, It Will most Likely require an adapter to RCA (red/white -usually- Audio Cables). It just depends on your DVD Player. Have Fun!..... :)

Connecting my inspire 5.1 to use with my sat/tv system


radelle1967,
I had originally bough these speakers for the sole purpose of connecting them to my 26" LCD Vizio television. I quickly realized that these speakers were not made for a television, so I just kept them connected to my desktop PC.
However, one day I asked my buddy from college to look at them and see what he thought. It took him a while to figure it out, but here is how I have them hooked up.
I can not guarantee that this will work on any other television set, but it does on mine. On the back of my Vizio television there is a hookup called "optional audio," which is located beneath the yellow, red, and white hookups. I hooked a 3-way headphone splitter into the "optional audio" hookup and then plugged the three cables from the speakers into the splitter.
Hooking up your speakers like this works very good and the sound is equally distributed between all speakers. However, there is a setting on my television under the sound menu that enables you to turn "surround" on. I had been told that by using a 3-way headphone splitter I wouldn't be able to get true surround sound, but turning on this option on my television actually allows this to be accomplished.

Hope this works for you. I purchased the 3-way splitter at radioshack and it was under $10. If your television does not have an "optional audio" hookup, you could probably try an RCA connector with just the red and white hookups that split into one and then connect the 3-way splitter to that.
