SOURCE: Finding replacement Power Supply for Altec Lansing

I did the same! Thanks for suggesting a call to Customer Support (800)258+3288. The guy didn't seem overly pleased to help, but he did promise to send me a new power supply. Also, he said that they don't make the iM7 anymore, but I had already found out that the iM9 uses the same power supply. I, too, will wait and see.

I work for a charity that had one of these donated today and as I was looking for a new sub for my cinema system I purchased it. I have no other speakers with it and no way of switching or varying the volume. I opened up the back of the sub and slid the board partly out exposing the PCB.

You'll see 3 solder connections behind the scre in an "L" configuration. One of them is common, one volume and one power on. As I don't need volume, I'm happy with it being on full as my cinema system will vary the input, I joined all 3 together giving power on and full volume. It is working great now.

For you guys with volume controls, I would suggest shorting out the two rightmost pins in the "L" and I recon this will power it up and try varying your volume control. I recon it'll work just great.

Good luck

My speakers will not power on


Are they powered from the USB cable, or from a separate DC jack? If it's a USB cable try using another. if still not working, try them on another computer. If they still don't work after that, they're faulty.
If they're powered from a DC jack, try another power adaptor.

I am trying to hookup my AL subwoofer to my existing comp system.Inserting a wire jack into one of the comp spkrs and subwoofer shuts the sound off.?? It is a FMC0034326 Altec Lansings Subwoofer.Thanks.


You can't just do that. Your sound card needs to have a specific jack just for subwoofers. If you plug it into the speakers, the computer recognizes the subwoofer as a pair of headphones and routes all sound through it. Remember, a subwoofer is not a normal speaker. It only allows a frequency of extremely low sounds (a.k.a. BASS) and won't play anything that you would need a tweeter for.

I have Altec Lansing AVS 300 multimedia speakers with no power


Unfortunately the subwoofer supplies the power to the amp on the speakers, Once again I have the solution,
These speakers are factory molded so that the only way to open them is to break the factory seal
this can be done by sharply rapping the seam at the bottom of the speaker with a heavy screwdriver handle or something similar.
Now you need to supply power to the amp...If you do not have the subwoofer you will need a 4.5volt power supply, after removing the board from the casing find the red white and black wires connecting
the orange plug wire to it, Personally I removed the entire cord from the unit, shough you can splice in at this point if you desire.
Connect the white lead to your posative on your power supply by either splicing or soldering, connect the ground to the heat sink using the screw that is already there holding the chip to the sink. reassemble the speaker.....super glue... and you are now in business.

Is it possible to connect my Altec ACS48 speaker system to my TV?


If your TV has audio output jacks, then yes, you can connect your speaker system to the TV. Run a stereo RCA cable from those output jacks to the audio input jack on the Altec system, using whatever adapter required. You will probably need to convert from RCA jacks to a 1/8-inch stereo plug for the speaker input. Or you can pick up a cable from Radio Shack that has the RCA plugs on one end and the stereo plug on the other, and omit the adapter.

If the TV doesn't have audio output jacks, there isn't any easy way to hook up the Altec.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if it has helped you. Thanks for asking here!

You may be out of luck. Apparently, Altec is no longer supporting this product (2002) and the user's manual provides no specifications for the power supply. You can try asking them at 1-800-ALTEC-88 (1-800-258-3288) or Email: csupport@alteclansing.com

The manual is at http://audio.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/altec_lansing_technologies/xa3051.html
