You will need to get a different cord, in a "Y" shape, where the "top" of the "Y" are 2 RCA male connectors (these plug into the speakers), and the "bottom" of the "Y" is a single male headphone jack connector (this plugs into your computer). You can get one of these cable at just about any electronics store for a few bucks

How do i hookup the what i think is the power cord to the computer its a round plug in


If it's a power cord, it doesn't plug into the computer; one end goes in the wall, the other into the speakers.

For most speaker pairs, there are 3 wires:
1) The wire that connects the speakers to each other. That's often fused into the back of the left speaker, and gets plugged into the right speaker (it's usually pretty well marked where to plug it in).
2) The wire that connects the right speaker to the computer. Usually it's pretty well marked where to plug this into the speaker. On the computer, that wire will fit into 2 ports. Usually those ports are marked with microphone and headphone icons. You want the headphone jack. If they aren't marked, try them both or check your manual.
3) The power cord. One end of that will plug into an electric outlet on the wall (or into an extension cord or power strip). The other end will plug into the right speaker; it should only fit into one hole (which will probably be marked with "12V" or "0.5A" or something like that).

It would help if you told us what kind of speakers you have, and what kind of wires you're seeing.

We found a pair of Boston (computer?) speakers in the trash, but the cords attached to them are confusing...on the main speaker the 2 cords have 1 end that fits into my headphone port on my laptop (like...


I have a similar set of speakers at home from the same company. For the pair i have, they are attached to an amplifier which provides the power to these speakers. without the amplifier, these speakers will not work. Now you can take the speakers to radioshack or a similar company and see if there is an specific type of amplifier that you can buy to work with these speakers, but im not sure if the speakers work at all!
hope this helps! Thumbs up if it did :)

Our speakers worked at old business location, since we've moved they don't. one is plugged into the other and then plugged into the CPU. however when turn volume on actual speaker there is no light lit...


Yes there is. You will need to find the power adapter that went with them. It will usually be a small brick like adapter that has a cable coming off of the end of it that will only fit in your speakers.

Good luck!

I have LCS-1012 speakers. Where do I plug them into the back of the computer? Do I only need the cord that is attached to one speaker?


Hi,

Your speakers should have come with a power cord also, because they need a power supply also.

But the cord you have to plug in goes into the green round terminal on the back of your PC. If the cord it a usb then fit it to any of the spare usb connections.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

I, too got a secondhand pair of these speakers


I mentioned somewhere in here already that I found a person who had the plug I needed, and actually had to splice it onto a 15-watt adaptor. The speakers work fine.

Need a replacement power cord for harmon kardon sound sticks II


its not that expensive for a power cord. they are running on 12v so you go and buy a 12v power supply with a jack that fits the speakers or you can just find a power supply at home if you have one that is 12v

Monsoon power cord needed on old computer speakers


leejean


the very best way to solve your problem, go to the electronic store and ask a dc power supply adapter 15volt 2A,vice versa polarity. with universal connector for it sure you can select the right type connector do you have for it fit to the back socket of your unit. before you connect read the correct polarity of your device you see label at back (+, -). and set the polarity output of the adapter correspond to your unit,,,
