It is unlikely that this is a problem with your speakers more likely that it is a problem with the DVD player itself. I would recomend trying another DVD player.

SOURCE: Can the Altec Lansing VS3251 5.1 work with a Xbox?

Because this system is made to work with the PCs, it has a 3.5 mm stereo input. The 360 has rca cable outputs. Fortunately, the signal is the same and all you need is a 3.5 mm to rca y adapter that you can find at radioshack or any local electronics store.

Altec lansing 221 computer speakers sound solution


Unfortunately it looks like Altec Lansing goofed up on this set and didn't provide a bass control knob. You will need to use some sort of software equalizer on your computer to turn the bass down.

No sound whatsoeveer


First, I would verify that the speakers have power. If they do, I would then check to see if the cables are firmly seated and in the appropriate jack (ie. not the microphone). If all of that is OK, then I would see if the computers audio is on mute (if so the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner will have an "X" on it) as well as adjusting the volume knob on the speakers. If your computer has multiple audio devices, make sure the appropriate device is selected for playback. If all else fails, I would then try to unistall and reinstall the audio device driver within device manager.

Also, If possible, I would test the speaker system on another device (ie. portable stereo/cd player/MP3 player) to narrow down the root cause of the issue.

Connecting an Altec Lansing ADA995 subwoofer system to a stereo


I have this exact Altec Lansing speaker system and I'm currently just using it with my Dell computer. But, I know you don't have to install these speakers to any high powered receiver for good sound quality. The subwoofer has two separate 200 watt RMS combined amplifiers built in for it's single knob controlled dual 6.5" bass drivers and 2-way magnetically shielded satellites, which are amplified together by any source that has an analog or digital volume control. The speakers act as a preamp receiver to any volume or frequency tone level controlled audio source. These input sources can also equalize the speakers receiving input signal for bass, treble or mid-range adjustments. You only need to obtain the proper adapter to hook up all the speakers to your desired component or device. Besides a computer, for example a TV with a variable audio out function or a mp3 player will work. The adapter that i am referring to is similar to what is included with certain 5.1 Logitech brand computer and multimedia speakers specifying gaming console and TV connecting. It has all three color coded 1/8" connector inputs on one end and RCA jack outputs on the other. This can be purchased more easily online then offline at stores such as Ebay for a fairly inexpensive price. However this adapter will not decode true 5.1 surround, but instead give a 5 channel stereo effect. I guess if one was looking for an inexpensive alternative solution to purchasing traditional high end home entertainment audio equipment, the ADA 995s are one of few computer speaker models in my book that can do a decent job.
