Question about Creative Labs SBS 580 Computer Speakers

Open Question

One of my speakers, the front right one, with the power button; the connector got ripped after use (being that the sub is down and you have to connect to it to make it work). and now It does not work anymore. I do not know where I can get one replacement, I looked at a it, and I don`t see no part #. Now Creative decided that it is an "end of life product", so no replacement parts are available. Any help, ideas?

look for a new cable or a similar end piece and you can splice the new cable onto the old one.

SOURCE: speakers not working

The black/green/orange connectors go into the corresponding color ports in the back of the computer, but you computer have to be able to support 7.1 or at least 5.1 audio. If it can't you can buy a separate sound card from Creative that does.

SOURCE: ive got creative inspire T7900 7.1 speaker system

Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?

If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one

If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up

SOURCE: No sound out left channel I-Trigue 3300 2.1

Hey, I had that same problem and looked over it with my Dad, who's very technically minded. Here's what he found:

** Begin Quote **
We also had no/weak sound on the left channel of the I-Trigue 3300 2.1. Here's what we found (starting where you left off...).

The internal bias for the input pin for the left channel on the M51132L (pin two on the M51132L between the heat sink and the connectors) appears to have failed. It was sitting at an operating point of around 11 volts (should be 5.4V as the others were) and was only capacitor coupled to other nodes (the input at 0V bias and the chips reference on pin 4 at 5.4V) so it wasn't a case of capacitor leakage. Our temporary fix was to hang a 10k resistor between the node on pin 2 (with the failed bias) and the node on pin 4 (a good bias source). The easiest place to hang it was across the cap that connected to those two nodes. That pulled pin 2 far enough from the rail (down to around 9 volts) to allow it to work at the levels we drive it at while we look for a replacement part. The expectation is that with this kludge in place the left channel will distort before the right one will when the drive level is increased however, for the tests so far, the right and left channel now both work equally well.

Cheers!

Hope this helps you!

2 speakers and 1 powered sub


The red and black connectors are the right (red) and left channels for the speakers, so they should connect. However the sub needs a single RCA type phono socket, which should be marked "sub" etc. If it hasn't got one of them you will have problems connecting the powered sub.

Can I hookup a Sony receiver STR-DE505 to a Bassbite 2 KLH Audio system and how??


Yes.

It's frustrating that KLH manuals seem impossible to find anywhere online BUT a simple picture will suffice...

Go here and supersize the picture of the rear of the sub...

Run your front channel speaker wires to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub and daisy-chain your front speakers to the CLEARLY-MARKED connectors on the sub.

Adjust the sub volume to match the front speakers levels. This will give you local volume control at the Sony.

My subs sound choppy


Sounds like your sub is "clipping". Clipping is when your speaker is trying to pull more power than the power supply. (head unit, amp) If it sounds good at a low volume and choppy at high volume, supply it with more power. Bigger amp. If it sounds choppy all the time, push gently on the middle of the speaker. It should go back and forth smoothly. If it feels rough, you have blown the coil. Replacing the speaker is the fix for that.

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Have stock radio # F75F-19B131-AA its in a 1998 F250 need to know how and if i can hook up one Amp for the two door speakers, and if i can hook up an additional Amp for some subs. Ofcourse if radio can do...


You will need a line level converter for starters (takes speaker level signal and converts it to line level/RCA signal) you connect this to the speaker left/right wires and it has a RCA left right on other end to connect and run to your amps, (you need this box because factory radios don't have RCA outputs on them) At that point all you have to do next is run the power/gnd/rem for your amp and then speaker wires to your front/rear speaker and then sub (if using). You can use one of these converters for your front/back speakers so you will still have use of your front/back/left/right fading options. make sure you disconnect th factory plug/harness at each speaker since the amp will be powering them and you will run speaker wires to each speaker. If you only want one converter it will be on your front channel and your sub will be power by the front. (you will fade to front for more/less sub bass unless your amp has a separate volume/bass control). If you want your sub to fade with rear speakers you will need to install another converter off of the rear speakers. Found a site with some photos that may help you with your project.

Subwoofer.......


Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
