Question about Boston Acoustics MediaTheater Computer Speakers

Open Question

I have a Boston Acoustic Digital Media Theater computer speaker system model # 7001364. The system recently developed a low background hum but works fine other wise. I have eliminated the sound board as the source. The sound seems to be related to the control cable and speaker/control box. Can the system still be repaired.

SOURCE: Boston Acoustic BA735 digital CD quality 16 bit/44.1khz speakers

Assuming you are using digital BA735.

Dell laptops come with a proprietery s-video dongle. It gives you a digital output which can go into the BA735 speakers.

I use one set of BA735 with two computers. Computer A sends digital out and Computer B sends analog. BA735 plays both. I listen to music using digital while the analog from the other computer alerts me to the incoming messages in Pidgin.

I did have to change bios settings on one computer to use the on-board audio.

To enable digital output in XP, click on the speaker icon > Advanced > Select Enable SPDIF. You can leave the PC Spk Mute unchecked if you want the analog output as well. That's all.

I hope you are able to enjoy the rich sound of BA735. It's beautiful. My ears thank a lot for replacing those desktop speakers. BA735 hardly takes up any space . Two small speakers are perched on the hutch and the bass module is somewhere behind the desk, completely invisible.

SOURCE: Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?

Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

SOURCE: Background hum

I fixed the same issue by replacing the original AC power supply with a 13.8 volt DC power supply (Radio Shack) It seems to be more consistent at high SPL and no hum , as the Boston acoustic unit accepts either AC or DC power.

Loud humming sound


Make sure that the input connection ground is good. If that does not cure the loud hum then you have a power supply issue.

In DEC 1998 I bought a Gateway PC with a Digital Media Theater, P/N 7000787. In the meantime the speaker in the sub-woofer got damaged (because of age). Is it possible to disassemble the sub-woofer and replace the speaker?
Where can I buy the same or a very similar speaker for this sub-woofer? Thanks, Andy Szekely

I get a low hum from my speakers. How can I get rid of this?


Boston Acoustics Media Theater HUM. The problem may be the power source. Find another DC power source for the 12 volt. All I had was a 14.5 volt 4.5 amps source Model PS6 power source which fit the plugin socket. Absolutely no hum now and still great sound. However, I would recommend a DC 12 volt source with at least 3 amps output.

Try installing an old creative driver for digital audio but use system restore to take a backup of your settings first. Also, you may have to update the bios and unselect the AUTO mode for sound.

The laptop should have a speaker output the same size as that plug. This is the size of most small computer speaker systems.
