How does Logitech X-540 speakers connect to a laptop?

Posted by on

1 Answer

You connect the green cable from the subs (the green one of the three, the other two being black and yellow) to where your headphones or speakers go into your laptop. Then you make sure the matrix button is activated on the x-540. This will make sound come from all of the speakers and it will use the sub, i.e. virtual surround sound.

To do it properly without using the matrix mode and trying to enable actual surrond sound (with centre satellie being mostly vocal, front two being instrumental/music, and back two being sound effects) then you need to buy an external sound card for your laptop that supports 5.1. I'd recommend the creative x-fi external usb, but only if you have xp. If you have vista, forget about getting an external sound card that supports real 5.1 for now because there aren't really any good and truly compatible ones.

I cant connect my Denon avr 682 to my pc via optical??


I would change your setting on your receiver to digital. its probably on analog. look for a button that says that. You might have to change your input have a look at the rear and see if it says, DVD optical or CD and choose that input.

I have a 42" plasma


The Logitech speakers z506 manual would explain what it needs for a source. RCA Audio outputs can be adapted to 3.5mm.

I am trying to connect my new LED 22LE6560U to Logitech PC speakers but only have red/white auxilary in connections available on speakers. Can you help?


They make adapters to fit RCA jacks to other things. I imagine the documentation for the unnamed speaker model and/or the TV might mention that.

Hi, I had some speakers and the 3.5mm audio jack wire that connects them into inputs had gone funny. You had to bend it into a sweet spot to get both speakers working otherwise only the left one would...


sounds like you bent the wire so that the wiring could actually make a contact, thus your speakers would work. Sounds like the contact is now broken which is probably a solder joint. You can remove the sleeve and you will see the issue. All you should have to do is resolder the connection and you will be done.

Neither my Harmon remote or my Logitech universal


Use the help function on your Logitech remote.
Need more information on specific problem to go much further.
Check for tight speaker connections on back of receiver.
Some units have fault sensing; causing 'drop out' preventing A/V receiver from turning out. Typically this is characterised by a clicking sound after receiving an IR signal.
Using high volume levels can affect speaker connections, especially at the back of the A/V unit connectors and banana speaker wire connections.

I have a Pioneer SG-540 stereo Graphic Equalizer that only works in the right channel, but more importantly puts out a large amount of excess humming moise and other unwanted sounds when the controls are...


I use the sg 540 equalizer for cd and tuner. (I have two of them) I also use the sa 940 to power my sound. On the tuner input of the amp, i used standerd rca cables and connected it to the output of the equalizer. then i connected rca cables from the input of the equalizer to the output of the tuner. this only works when the top equalizer button is pushed on. hope it works for you.

I have no instruction manual for my x-540 logitech speakers to set them up to play music from my Dell lap top


Hi bbphysio

I could not find any instruction manuals for you, but here is a great procedure on hooking up and testing your speaker system from Logitech. It is for the next model along from yours, but I am sure that it will help sort out you setup.

Thanks for using FixYa, a FixYa rating would be great for finding this for you. Cheers
