Question about Altec Lansing VS2121 Computer Speakers
Posted by Anonymous on
Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts
This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.
Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +
Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)
Pin 3 = Left Line In +
Pin 4 = Right Line In +
Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)
Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +
Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)
Pin 8 = Power A
Pin 9 = Power B
Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

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.
