Question about Altec Lansing CS21 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Altec Lansing CS-21

Hey, Recently purchased a set of Altec Lansing CS-21 speakers, only to find as soon as I got them home the subwoofer wouldn't work. I can sometimes geti it to work by wiggling the 3.5in plug at the rear of the sub, but it always just drops out. There is no problem with the satellites, which confuses me. I spent a good 200 bucks on these and am thoroughly disappointed. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated, Justin

Sounds like a bad connection, i wouldnt even try and repair it i would just return them for a replacement. Could be a bad solder connection inside or the cable.

No sound from one speaker. It's a new Altec Lansing VS2621 2.1 Channel Speaker System

Altec Lansing used to be good, but not any more. I had one that buzzed even when switched off. As it was in my bedroom, I put it all back in the box like new and gave it to a Christmas present drive for underprivileged children.

The speaker with the controls goes on the right. Here is the installation manual

Windows should find the driver, but here

I just got a used set of altec lansing ADA745 computer speakers and can't get power to them. I have never seen computer speakers w/ two wires for input to the computer. I plugged the usual green colored...

https://support.dell.com/support/edocs/acc/ada745/ada745.pdf

That is the setup guide for the speakers.

The two wires plug into a cable that then that single cable plugs into the computer, this way you have sound coming out of the left and right hand speakers.

Where can I download a driver for Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?

HI, maybe theres been a bit of confusion but your Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers shouldn't need any drivers.
Its kind of similar to you plugging in a pair of headphones into your cumputer, they should work just fine.
Are you not getting any sound? Post the details of your PC (is it a dell?)
model number etc... and describe your problem
You probably need audio drivers for your audio device(inside your pc on your motherboard),

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.

Connect Altec Lansing ADA745 to HD TV RCA output for home theater

It won't work like this due to this being a computer only speaker system. It requires the drivers to work with a computer & a Home theater does not recognize the format. Sorry.

My Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers have stopped working. I probably downloaded some other software that overrode the Dell speaker installation. How do I reinstall the Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?

The speakers are probably fine. What you probably need to do is to reinstall the sound drivers on your dell.

You need the model of your dell pc and go to the dell website and find download and install the sound drivers for your system.

The model of your pc will be needed if any more assistance is needed.
