Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.

I have hk 3390 reciever


What I did is bought a splitter, plugged it in the headphone jack at the back of the iMac. One side goes to my computer external speakers and one to my receivers aux input, or tape one input. I works, just make sure that the volume on your iMac is not higher than half way, or your sound might be distorted and your external computer speakers are off. Not unless you want them on. Keep your iTunes EQ set to flat, that also will create unwanted distortion. Use you receiver tone controls if needed. Hope this works for you, that's how I did it.

Your speakers need amplification. Otherwise you will not be able to hear anything, even at full volume. Once you have an amplifier, you can buy a 1/8 inch stereo plug to RCA cable (1/8" to RCA) from the computer to the amplifier. You'd then use regular speaker wire between the amp & the speakers.

Creating a surround sound system


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand should work more than OK. Even if the 520 is only pushing 75watts per channel, you have 2 X for the front KSB-2.1 (left & right) plus another 75 for the Polk Audio center in addition to 250watts built-in amp of the Velodyne CT-150. What would be better is another pair of KSB-2.1 or comparable for the surround (another 2 X 75 and widening the separation).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Polk audio ext speakers on hp pavilion no sound, worked fine the other day?


OK... I was just going crazy looking for the same solution. I had let the Verizon guy hook everything up for me (It's a desktop) after I changed offices. He hooked up the plug to match the color of an input on the computer, but he had plugged it into the WRONG one.. heheh... If you have access to the back of your computer - be sure it's plugged in correctly there. (Other plug ins I tried gave me very low sound) My computer - an HP pavillion has two orange inputs - not near each other - but the other one has a little pic of speaker. (LOL).... or (CQ - chuckle quietly)...

Polk Audio RC55i In-Wall Surround Speakers (can't hear whispers)


I'd make sure that the receiver surround mode is set for one of the digital settings, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, and make sure that you have the center channel level adjusted to a level similar to the other two front channel speakers. I've seen/heard this happening when using dolby digital material & having surround set on something like 'hall' or 'stadium' or dolby surround, where only 4 channels are used & the amp has to 'mix' sounds to the left & right front speakers. It'll often sound like the actors on screen are talking out of the bottom of a barrel, with a hollow & tinny character to the voices.

Linking DVD/CD to Receiver


You use rca cables to hook them up to each other. On the back of your Reciever make sure it is hooked to the cd. There should be speaker outlets in the back of the reciever. You should have suroundsound, Center, left and right speaker ports. I've never seen just 2. Crazy
