Question about HP JBL Platinum Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Compaq JBL Platinum Series speakers

I took these speakers off my Compaq monitor, bought a power cord at Radio Shack, inserted the wiring into back of computer - green to green, and powered them up and no sound??? I can hear a clacking noise from the speakers and the on/volume button light is on, but no sound from the speakers. They did work with the Compaq monitor.

Any ideas what may be wrong?
Will I need a new sound card?
Are drivers necessary for the speakers?

Thanks,
Sid

    Does it run for all JBL supplied with Compaq Presario Series?

Make sure that you got 12v 1.0 A adapter. Not .01 A. They have one at newegg.com atrix DVCPA1AA power adapter-12v 1.0 A. you should not need drivers for speakers. Make sure you got it pluged into right port if you got the adapter. Also make sure under control panel under sound that you got it setup for two speakers.

Where can i find my platinum jbl series speakers driver? my monitor is compaq v7550..thx a lot if u able to help me..


> where can I find ...

Nowhere -- speakers are electro-mechanical devices -- accept electrical power and move the speaker-cone, to create air-waves which your ear interprets as sounds.

They are not electronic devices that require software and device-drivers to make them work.

What is the polarity of the jbl platinum series speakers


Speakers don't really have Polarity ... they have Phase. The audiophile wants the speaker cone acting in the same direction not opposite directions. So, watch your wire - one conductor will have a rib on it, the other smooth. You pick which you want to hook to the red or the + or what the mark is on your devices pick the other conductor for the other side, black or - or what ever matches.

Make sense???

Video upload....


well, the connector that comes from the 2nd speaker goes into the speaker port in the back of the first speaker.

The wierd cord possibly fits into the 12v dc slot in the back.. and the other end would go to a power adapter..

Seems you are missing a power adapter,, like you said earlyer.

Basically you would need a standard power adapter which fits into the speaker.

You could get some universal power adapter for it like
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNIVERSAL-DIGITAL-AC-ADAPTER-ADJUSTABLE-VOLTAGE-NEW_W0QQitemZ150275118131QQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

Or

something to this direction
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNIVERSAL-AC-TO-DC-POWER-SUPPLY-ADAPTOR-ADAPTER-CHARGER_W0QQitemZ230275174536QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item230275174536&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1318


If you want to make sure you get the right kind of power apdater
Try contacting jbl directly
http://www.jbl.com/home/product_support/JBL_contactus.aspx?ProdId=PLATINUM%20SERIES&ProdName=COMPAQ:%20Platinum%20Series


I was looking around ebay, found this
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JBL-Platinum-Series-PC-Speakers_W0QQitemZ260266345340QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item260266345340&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1318

Theres the power adapter in the middle, I think the odd cord goes to the back of the first speaker and the other end would go to a power adapter.. try contacting jbl they should be able to get you what you need.

Seems you have everything else you need except for the power adapter.
