SOURCE: 1. my computer wont recognize

This type of speaker set up needs what is called a "Powered USB Hub". It has to do with the amount of milli amps needed to run the speakers. USB ports in the typical Laptop are not capable of that much power output. Has nothing to do with normal low power devices, mp3, phones, thumb drives. do not draw much power from the port. There is 5 volts there to charge phones and the like but not run powered speakers. Hope this is clear as mud, and hope it helps Fix Ya up.

Reconnecting/retiring Bose speaker cones. Inside speaker I have four coloured wires....Red,Black, Green & Orange....which connectors do they attach to on the speaker cone?


Since you posted this in cars and trucks I assume this is a bose car system. Most bose auto systems have the amp physically attached to the individual speakers. This means each speaker needs the following wires +12v, 12v ground, + signal and - signal. It also means that the head unit cannot directly drive a non bose speaker. If you are replacing the speakers and bose radio the best thing to do is to run new speaker wires. You can reuse the factory ones if you can identify which ones are what...and that may be a pain. If the bose amps are ok and you want to replace the speaker you would need to leave them connected and wire the new speaker to the wires on the bose speaker that come from the bose amp. Depending on the specific bose system there may be an actual wire that runs to the speaker from the amp but on others the amp is directly connected to the voice coil leads of the bose speaker.

The problem is the USB hub, this often leads to a proper signal routing, as it splits the signals to smaller data packets. Remove the hub and all other USB ports. Let then newly recognize the PC your USB connection (not via Hub!).
