Question about Logitech Z-5500 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Centre Speaker No Sound

Today my Logitech speakers arrived and i hooked them all up. I connect them via the optical in on my razzer ac gaming card.
It seems everything works fine, when i do a sound test in windows (where you pick the speakers to hear a sound) all work, except the centre speaker.
I made sure its all connected properly and no luck.
I have set it to output DTS and Dolby Digital and always the centre speaker dosn't work.
Is there something im missing? Or something i can try?

I can think of two things., you may need to do the update on your sound card and computer and make sure you have the correct codec's installed or also you may need to go to the web site of the makers of your logitech speakers and see if they have a common solution for this problem...... i also wonder if you should bypass the sound card and directly connect your speaker system to the out put port on your computer ..... give it a try what can it hurt .... if all else fails maybe there is a faulty wire in the speaker system ....... ahy ?

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...

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 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.

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.

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

Im trying to connect my Logitech X-530 to my PS3.


You need a digital decoder that is compatible with the ps3 and the speakers.

You would then run a digital optical link from the ps3 to the decoder and the normal speaker cables from the decoder to the speakers.

Decoders can be quite expensive and it can sometimes be easier to buy a set of 5.1s with the decoder either built in or included with the package.

Centre speaker


Your center speaker is probably busted since you say you here an odd popping noise from it. You will need to get a new center speaker. It is not your sound card unless the same happens if you buy a new center speaker.

Connecting Logitech X-530 speakers to TV flatscreen.


It really depends on what the Tv is capable of, and how you want to strategize the connection, but yes, it can be done.

According to the X-530 User Manual , the speaker system comes with an included video game adapter, for hookup with a console. if your LCD TV has stereo RCA output jacks, you could hook up your speakers to it in that fashion. If not, you may have to buy an adapter that converts whatever you have to RCA.

Another way you could attempt to connect it, is to buy a stereo RCA-to-3.5mm (g9) adapter, and connect to your computer's line in (if it's stereo). Your computer would be doing all the speaker sound positioning, and would have to be left on while you're watching TV, but that would work, as well.
