How do i hook up two altec lansing speakers and


Depending on the sound card installed in your system, integrated into the motherboard or not, you may need a "Y" splitter adapter. Typically, the subwoofer has a black plug while the regular speakers have a green plug. The red color is a new one on me, but let's assume that it is the subwoofer. If you have a black outlet on your computer, plug the red one into that outlet.

If your speakers came with your system, HP would have provided you with proper adapters to make the speakers work for whichever speaker system you have. If you have any "Y" adapters, use them.

Hooking up speakers


On the back of your computer tower (that thing with the power button on the front) you should see three small headphone jack looking thingies, with colored bands around them. Your speaker cord plugs into the green one, if you have a microphone, it goes in the pink one.

Your speaker set should have a wall wart type power supply, plug that into any convenient outlet, and plug the other end into the proper jack on your speakers.

The volume knob on your speakers is also an on-off switch, turn it on.

How do you hook up altec lansing speakers to the computer


You have to set your speakers first.
Connect the cables between them, connect the subwoofer( if any)
Connect the speakers to the power.
Then conect the cable with the end green (pin male connector) to green hole in the back of your computer.
(ther are three holes in straight line, one is mic (pink) other is green (speaker) and the last one is blue (line in)

That't it.

Ive just brought my computer and it came with altec lansing serious 100 speakers im not sure how to set them up?


There should be a green color cable (3.5mm in size) coming out of one of the speakers. That cable connects to the green color port in the back of the computer.

If your still having trouble please comment back with the model of the speakers... Altec Lansing Series 100 Model ??? and brand name and model of the computer. If it's not a brand name computer but a generic PC, then the brand name and model of the motherboard.

I have Altec Lansing Speakers. They were working fine Saturday. I just tried to use them for class and now I am not geting any sound. I checked all the wires and they are all plugged in. I am getting no...


There are many models of Altec speakers, which do you have?

Most computer speakers include built-in amplifiers, volume and
tone controls, remote, audio processing, cross over networks...
etc.

These are sophisticated electronics devices, not the passive
speaker boxes of the 1970's

If any of the internal electronics, or even the internal power supply are fried, they will not work.

But don't miss the obvious:

1) Double check not only the cables, but also the audio-card
software settings.

Most new audio cards have programmable inputs and outputs,
some automatically detect what is connected to them.

Make sure that the settings are correct.

2) Make sure that the Audio card is not set for digital output
with analog speakers or vice versa.

3) Check the Windows mixer/volume control, or the mixer applet
that came with your audio card (or motherboard) to make
sure that the audio output is not MUTED or attenuated
anywhere in the audio path.

4) Make sure the Windows Vista DRM is not getting in the way.
(try non-protected audio files)

5) Finally try your speakers on another computer.

6) If the speakers are analog, connect them to the "LINE-OUT"
output of your home stereo to confirm if they are defective.

(This may require an RCA plug to miniature stereo adapter)

7) If the speakers are determined to be dead, phone ALTEC
tech support, insist on speaking to an engineering manager,
complain and make your self sound very important...

They may send you a free replacement.


I have found the ALTEC staff to be exceptionally helpful and
professional. On one occasion, they have acknowledged an
inherent design problem with a particular speaker model,
and sent me a more expensive replacement under warranty.

There are very few companies as GOOD as ALTEC, when it
comes to customer service.
