Make sure the cables are plugged in the correct places on your PC. You may need to use the headphone out on the back panel. This depends on your audio card in your PC.

SOURCE: How to disassemble Logitech Z-340 sub-woofer

The speaker bezel can be removed in only two ways:

1) Somehow remove the grille in order to get a the screws which hold the bezel onto the cabinet. I tried to do this and couldn't get it to budge. Once I got the thing open I observed that Logitech used a LOT of glue to hold this thing together.

2) Drill holes THROUGH the grill above each of the 8 screws large enough so you can loosen the screws.

Once you get it open, you'll be shocked to discover what you thought was the subwoofer cone is actually A ROUND PIECE OF CARDBOARD fastened to the foam. The 4" driver is behind this fastened to a board halfway back pointing into the chamber containing the electronics.

You can get to the power transformer, but good luck removing it. The screws are nearly impossible to unfasten; more glue but more importantly incredibly awful access to the nut and screw (yes, a screw, not a bolt).

I wouldn't pay 5 bucks for this system. Luckily, I didn't.

When I do a noise test I get no sound out of the woofer. I am getting no bass from the woofer


These are "decent" quality 5.1 speakers, usually without any trouble.

Now, to your question, you will not have 5.1 "surround sound" effect with standard sound card, standard sound card will provide only three speakers sound, rear speakers will not connect but bass should be hear. Please switvh power off to the speakers and disconnect all cables from spaekers and connect them for best quality as follows:

1. Audio from PC, orange, green and black connecting to front right speaker.
2. DB15 (D-SUB) connecting to subwoofer, subwoofer is serving as mixer, power board, amplifier and connection box, control pod is just cable connection to it
3. Connect all cables to they respective speakers

Establish location of the speakers, from experience, in ideal world:

1. Sub should be on about your knee level or below, about twice your hight from you.
2. Front centre speaker should be about some distance as sub or bit closer on front and slightly above your head.
3. Front left and right speakers should be at about 45degree from your axis, at distance of about 1.5 your hight and on the level of your head or slightly below.
4. Rear left and right speakers should be located similiary to front speakers, on they level or slightly above them, again, about 45degree from your axis.

Location of the speakers is more actually important than it is assumed, total sound immersion is not possible without proper speakers installation. Head in these instruction meant a location of your head while you are listening to your music or recording not while you are standing.

In reality... hang them higher than your head in four corners of your room, front centre higher than sides, woofer lower than sides and below front centre, if they interfere with each other - increase the distance. I hate reality...

After speakers are connected:
1. Plug power cord in,
2. Turn all sounds totally down, including subwoofer
3. Increase sound on PC to maximum, let play any known to you music, tufftuff or bach, whatever, do not bother with metallica as you cannot discredit on it correct levels.
4. Increase subwoofer volume, holding one hand on the front of the grill till you get some vibration from it
5. Increase sound on centre speaker, then on sides front speakers till you achieve equality of the sound
6. Decrease sound volume on your PC to about 60% - 70%
7. Increse subwoofer volume till you feel sound on your hand in front of the speaker.
8. Increase sound volume on front/rear speakers as required.

Hope that short intro solved all your speaker problems, enjoy! if you require any additional help, do not hesitate to answer to this post with request.

I bought these x 240 speakers used. do i need a driver to run them? where do i connect the plugs, black and green?


These are "decent" quality 5.1 speakers, new were on about $100.00 to $150.00, have two years warranty from time of purchase.

Now, to your question, you will not have 5.1 "surround sound" effect with standard sound card, standard sound card will provide only three speakers sound, rear speakers will not connect.

Connect speakers as follows:
1. Audio from PC, orange, green and black connecting to front right speaker.
2. DB15 (D-SUB) connecting to subwoofer, subwoofer is serving as mixer, power board, amplifier and connection box
3. White plug is connecting to front left speaker
4. Red is connecting to front centre speaker
5. Black is connecting right rear speaker
6. Yellow is connecting left rar speaker.

Establish location of the speakers, from experience in ideal world:

1. Sub should be on about your knee level or below,
2. Front centre speaker should be about twice your hight distance from you, on front and slightly above your head.
3. Front left and right speakers should be at about 45degree from your axis, at distance of about 1.5 your hight and on the level of your head or slightly below.
4. Rear left and right speakers should be located similiary to front speakers, on they level or slightly above them, again, about 45degree from your axis.

Location of the speakers is more actually important than it is assumed, total sound immersion is not possible without proper speakers installation. Head in these instruction meant a location of your head while you are listening to your music or recording not whil eyou are standing.

In reality... hang them higher than your head in four corners of your room, front centre higher than sides, woofer lower than sides and below front centre, if they interfere with each other - increase the distance. I hate reality...

1. Plug power cord in,

3. Increase sound on PC to maximum, let play any known to you music, tufftuff or bach, whatever, do not bother with metallica as you cannot discredit on it correct levels.
4. Increase subwoofer volume, holding one hand on the front of the grill till you get some vibration from it
5. Increase sound on centre button of the right fron speaker till you achieve equality of the sound
6. Decrease sound volume on your PC to about 60% - 70%
7. Increse subwoofer volume till you feel sound on your hand in front of the speaker.
8. Increase sound volume on front/rear speakers as required.

There are leads that need to be connected to your computer for the Front, Rear, and Subwoofer speakers Not all motherboards have all of these connections Your Logitech manual shows how to connect the speakers correctly if you do not have all of the connections on your motherboard

Woofer and two front speakers work, nothing else.


Did you configure your computer to use theother speakers. Go to control Panel and then Sound and you should be able to configure it there. it also depends on what type of sound card your computer has.

I just bought new speakers (logitech x-530) which is 5.1. sound only comes out of the front 2 speakers and the sub but not the back 2 and the centre. any ideas? computer specs are: motherboard - asus...


Sorry just doublechecked your board specs. Go to the sound properties in control panel. Click on the configure speakers option. If everything is plugged in right then windows should configure it for you to a 5.1 config. Hope this helps.
