Connectors I have a set of Sound Sticks my daughter purchased for a first generation Mac Powerbook (with a USB connection instead of a 3.5 mini plug). Is there a way to change these to use with a newer computer?

Can I connect original Harmon/Kardon Sound Sticks speakers with a 3.5 mm headphone-type jack instead of the USB it came with?


USB speakers are a different animal to standard passive or active speakers.

The USB cable will carry power and a digital signal and the speakers have circuitry to convert this into a stereo analogue signal the speakers require.

Normal active computer speakers with a 3.5 mm jack plug obtain the power from an independent power source, passive speakers require no additional power, but in both cases they use an analogue signal from the sound card.

The short answer you wanted is no...

Do s-150 usb digital speakers work for mac?


Hi, I had this problem too but thankfully I figured it out after a investigating a few settings. I was very frustrated because the light came on and the buttons would manipulate my MacBook Pro and MacBook sound, but nothing came out of the speakers. Solution:1.) Click on System Preferences, 2.) Choose "Sound", 3.) Select the "Output" button in the middle of the top bar, 4.) in the selectable menu, choose USB (of course your speakers must be plugged in for this to show). Tada! You can even balance the Left and Right speakers in this menu. Hope that works for you too!

Cant figure out how to hook them up


Two audio input cables are supplied with the speakers. If your computer has a stereo mini jack, use the cable with a stereo mini plug. Otherwise, use the cable with RCA plugs on both ends. Match the colors on the connectors to the colors on the jacks, red to red and white to white.
The speaker cable is already attached at one end to the accessory speaker. Plug the other end into the TO ACCESSORY SPEAKER jack on the powered speaker.
1. Connect one end of the audio input cable to AUDIO INPUTS A. 2. Connect the other end to your computer's AUDIO OUTPUT jack. We recommend using LINE OUT if your computer sound card offers more than one option. 3. To connect a separate CD-ROM, or another source, repeat steps 1 and 2 using AUDIO INPUTS B.
You must connect the AC power pack to operate the speakers. 1. Plug its cable end into the power jack on the powered speaker. 2. Plug the power pack blades into the wall outlet. 3. Turn on your computer sound source or external sound source.

Hi, i just recently bought some logitech z-5500 and have tried to hook them to my mac. The problem is that the speakers are far too quiet they all work but they are not giving out 505watts rms. My mac only...


Hey there,

The 3.5mm socket is the only thing you can plug into on a mac for speakers.

Have you checked to make sure that the system volume is turned up? Use the volume buttons on the mac keyboard to turn it up.

Let me know if this does or doesnt work and we'll try something else!

Good luck :)

No sound from speakers


Probably.
Do they connect to the computer via USB or mini plug?
If mini plug, make sure you have the right jack on the back of the computer (there's two)
Then go into System Preferences ... select "Sound" and see if you can select something other than "Internal Speakers" - the computer may just not be aware that you want to use the external speakers ...
Are the speakers powered? Is there a volume control on the subwoofer, or an external fob with a volume control on it? You probably know this if you used them previously with your Compaq computer ...

Good luck!

BA735 no sound but sound card works in analog mode.


this should be pretty easy to diagnose. both speakers have mini jacks right? if so, and you plug one pair of speakers in on say, port "A" and you get sound then if you plug your other speakers in on port "A" and you don't get any sound, the problem is with your speakers.

Connecting my inspire 5.1 to use with my sat/tv system


radelle1967,
I had originally bough these speakers for the sole purpose of connecting them to my 26" LCD Vizio television. I quickly realized that these speakers were not made for a television, so I just kept them connected to my desktop PC.
However, one day I asked my buddy from college to look at them and see what he thought. It took him a while to figure it out, but here is how I have them hooked up.
I can not guarantee that this will work on any other television set, but it does on mine. On the back of my Vizio television there is a hookup called "optional audio," which is located beneath the yellow, red, and white hookups. I hooked a 3-way headphone splitter into the "optional audio" hookup and then plugged the three cables from the speakers into the splitter.
Hooking up your speakers like this works very good and the sound is equally distributed between all speakers. However, there is a setting on my television under the sound menu that enables you to turn "surround" on. I had been told that by using a 3-way headphone splitter I wouldn't be able to get true surround sound, but turning on this option on my television actually allows this to be accomplished.

Hope this works for you. I purchased the 3-way splitter at radioshack and it was under $10. If your television does not have an "optional audio" hookup, you could probably try an RCA connector with just the red and white hookups that split into one and then connect the 3-way splitter to that.
