I bought a logitect with 5 small speakers but i have 3 imput but my computer has only one. how do i connect


Unless *********** board was bought years and years and years, and even years ago, you should by default have at least three jacks. Headphones, or sound out; micorphone, and a line input or second out put. You can adjust your settings in the control panel under audio devices to have a least two (2) outputs, in which case you want to connect the green and black. You should have instructions that came with the system to show you guidelines for setting up the speakers, but you can then use your matrix feature to mimmick surround sound!

Rear and Centre speakers not working


The system comes with l remote which provides controls for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have the ability to do so.
I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting

No sound


Hi,

To my knowledge, a Logitech X-540 does not need a driver to operate. However, it is the sound card in the PC that would need drivers. Further, the sound card should be capable of 5.1 surround sound system and should have three (3) sound output which includes. All of these would have individual jacks to match the different plugs of the X-540 (green, black and orange plugs). The X-540 in turn would output the 3 inputs to front pair, rear pair, center and sub woofer. The green goes to the front L/R, the black to the rear L/R and the orange to the center/sub.

Perhaps you can post back with the brand/model of your PC , and your soundcard or motherboard. Knowing your OS would also be helpful.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
