Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

Speaker hook up

I, too, am running WinXP home and am trying to figure out how to hook up to my computer. I've connected all the speaker wires and power wire. There was a 3 plug cord w/green, peach, and black on each plug. On the back of the sub woofer was a place for each to plug in...but where on the computer do they plug into? Do all three have a place to be plugged in?
Just frustrated!
Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help.
Blessings,
Shari

Shari,

It is my hope that I can help. This applies to the type of sound card on your PC.

- If you have a 2-channel sound card: Select 2 on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to tyhe front jack on your PC sound card. With this input setting, your speakers will upmix the 4-channel signal and create a center signal for your speakers.

- If you have a 4-channel sound card: Select '4' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.

- If you have a '6'-channel sound card: Select '5-1' on the source selector switch on the subwoofer. Connect the colored jacks on the audio input cable to the jacks on your PC sound card, making sure to match the colors.

Your sound card is located on the back of your PC Tower.

Good luck

How to connect new flat screen tv with hdmi cable to an olin ross sound system 6050 home theater 1000 watts


Evidently this system is a speaker system that hooks up to 5.1 home theater receiver. I've included a few quote on how to hook up the 6050 system:
" Measure and cut wires running from the speakers to the receivers"

"Run the wires from all speakers and the subwoofer to the back of the receiver".. The key is to have a home theater receiver, then you can hook up the TV to the receiver.

I have a kicker kx 150.2 amp that keeps goin in protect mode as soon as i turn up the volume on my head unit. I'am running two 12" dvc orion c2 124's. I 've been through every wire going...


Hi there,

as far as wiring the two voice coils on one speaker are concerned, the best way to do it would be to run the two positives together and the two negatives together, this will create what is known as a parellel connection. The amp will see the two voice coils as half of a single units ohms, i.e. if the voice coils are 4ohms each, then the amp will see 2ohms. Therefore, if the amp puts out 150w into 4ohms you should achieve 250+w into 2ohms. The best bet would be to run 1 sub on each channel with both voice coils connected. Check the specs to see if the amp is rated to push @ 2 x 2ohms, but the setting of it should be automatic.
I would test the speakers at quite a low volume to begin with and gradually raise the volume when you know everything is running fine.For the best future performance of the amps and speakers from new, its always a good idea to "run in" the system for a week or two before pushing the performance to its max.

Hope this has been helpful.

Wiring internal board of labtec computer speakers


The shielded wires are for ground, so they get connected together. Plug the wire into the PC and run some music. Then touch each wire to the others. You only have a couple of combinations to try...red-to-green and white-to-yellow, or red-to-yellow and white-to-green, . You can do this while the PC is one and music playing until you get sound thru the speakers. There virtually no current running thru the wires and you can't hurt the PC by doing this.
If the speakers use an external power supply, have it plugged in and working when trying these connection options.

How to hook the thing up and can it be hooked to a home computer


You can download the manual from Pioneer at this page. Just click the "owner's manual" link. There are diagrams and hookup information in the manual.

It is possible to connect your computer. You can run an audio cable from the line out jack (the one that would normally connect to a set of computer speakers) and connect it to an available input on the receiver (such as the auxiliary or CD inputs). You would need to pick up an adapter or cable to provide the right connections at both ends. The computer will normally need a stereo mini-phone plug, and the input at the receiver is RCA plugs.

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD


This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.

I have logitech X 240 i need to hook them back to my pc, i cant figure it out, it either vibrates or a tone sound..."HELP""""


Hi. Did you plug in the subwoofer/control to the Green Slot on the back of your pc ? (should be green wire connected in the green slot)
Then you connect the 2 speakers in the back of the woofer. you will see a little slot with the label Speakers next to it.

Hope this helps, if this is not what you have already tried.

Speaker system


This definately means that you have a positve and negative speaker wire touching somewhere. First thing to do would be to check all connections at the speakers and on back of receiver and make sure all wires are seperated. This is a common problem if two wires are touching each other. If you check all connections and they look ok and you still have same problem you need to start unhooking all wires and hook them up one at a time and turn on system. If it works with one speaker then try hooking up a second speaker wire and so on until it gives you protection message again. Basically process of elemenation. Once you says that protection message you need to replace the last wire you hook up all together as you could of damaged it when running speaker wire or it could be a defect in speaker wire.

Hooking up speakers to amp


YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.
