Question about Dell 5650 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

I have a Dimension 9100 connected with a dell 5650 speaker system (front speaker bar, 2 frt. speakers, 2 rear speakers and a sub woofer) I have checked the connections and all seems to be in the right place...I only have sound coming from the front speakers and sub woofer... the center speaker and both rear speakers have no sound...I was able to get the rear speakers to have sound by installing the black speaker pin plug into the green inlet in the back of the computer but lost front speaker sound...I did have sound to rear speakers but still no sound from front bar speaker... I read that I might need a speaker adaptor to correct this problem... if that is the solution where can I find such adaptor and what is the dell part number???? Thanks for your assistance...Nick

    Did your speaker come with a pigtail 3 to 1, yellow, black and, green to 1 green? If so how do you have hooked up?

    Do you have a yellow connector on the back of the computer? It should have kind of a rectangle symbol.

    I looked at Dell forums and this was usually the fix. However, if you don't have this adaptor and cant find one something like the Sound Blaster card would work for you and is reletively inexpensive.

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...


Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

What is the best way to wire four 6" 55 watt


My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.

I been having a problem with my JBL TLX CSS-SUB1, I don't have the manual. Connecting speaker wires from the JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 to the a Digital Audio/Video Control Center ( it's a reciever) I confused,...


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

Dell mms 5650 to play xbox 360?


You want to hook it up to your xbox or your tv? If it is connected to your tv already just adjust tv/xbox audio settings. If your looking for a place to plug it into your xbox your out of luck. I don't think that can be done without some skilled craftsmanship.

Dell Dimension 4700 PC Speaker No Sound


Check to make sure all cables are connected. After this you will need to click on your sound card properties and set it to 5.1. which will allow all the speakers to play.

Please note you will need to have a card that supports 5.1 sound I do not believe the stock card in the Dell supports this feature which could be the problem.

2 Dell 5650 have no sound


the surround sound speakers plug into the rear of the computer with three plugs. an adapter comes with it to plug those three into one green plug. if you plug that green plug in, the rear and center speakers should work, although i don't know if the surround sound will work correctly but you should get sound

No sound, cenral and rear speakers Dell 5650 speakers


the surround sound speakers connect to the computer by way of three connectors. the system should have come with an adapter that plugs all three connectors into one green connector. if you color match that green connector into the computer you should get sound out of the central and rear speakers. not sure if the surround sound will work correctly for movies, but you should get sound

Dell 5650 speaker wire adapter


As I understand it, this adapter is used ONLY to adapt a standard 2-channel stereo output to the 3, 1/8" plugs of the Dell 5650 5.1 system. These 3 plugs would normally plug into the front, rear, and center/sub outputs on a computer designed to output 5.1 channel sound.

To make this clear, what this means is that the output you get from your 2-channel stereo system, using this adapter with the Dell 5650 5.1 system, will NOT be full 5.1 surround sound...it will be 2-channel stereo signals intermixed so that it plays from the 5650 system through the Dell amplifiers and speakers...nothing more.

This cannot be over-emphasized. The adapter does NOT create true 5.1 sound from a 2-channel stereo output system.

If you are hoping to get true 5.1 output from a 2-channel stereo system, you will be disappointed.

All this adapter likely does is split/mix some of the 2-channel signal into the rear channel, and split/mix some of the SAME 2-channel signal into the center-sub channel, just so you will get some output from those speakers. There may be some low-pass filtering for the sub-woofer input.

It is almost certainly a very simple passive circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and possibly an audio transformer or two.

Look for circuit on Do-It-Yourself electronic sites and build it yourself...or you're almost certain to be ripped-off.

Front right and left speakers problems


This is going to have to be a solution in the works...so don't rate until we have some kind of end-result.



Connect the speakers to a different device such as an MP3 player or a Nintendo DS. See if the speakers still cease to work. If they work just fine with a different device, then consider that it may not be the speakers...but a problem with the sound system in your PC.

Perhaps the sound configuration in Windows is disrupted. Perhaps the driver settings for your soundcard in your PC are corrupted. (A complete reinstallation of Windows with a fresh installation of the sound drivers would probably prove this theory right or wrong.)

Perhaps there is a problem with the FRONT CHANNEL hole on the sound system on the rear of your PC. You could check that by plugging the REAR channel of the speakers into the FRONT channel on the PC.

And lastly...there could be a break or a short in the cable of the speakers. You could always test another set of speakers with each sound channel and see if that might be the possible issue.

If the sound card in the PC turns out to be the problem, then install a different sound card. If the soundcard in your PC is currently the onboard one, then disable it in the BIOS before installing the new card.

Let us hear the results before we do any rating. Unless of course you're able to fix it with the data given. :)
