Question about JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers

1 Answer


Is it possible to connect the speakers to a television. I have tried it for just a minute and the sound is brilliant and they look great but as I know nothing about the technical side of things I am unsure if they are suitable as there is no litrature suggesting that this is possible. My tv is a 42" plasma, it says in the manual - specifications - sound output 10W + 10W - Equaliser Balance can be set at 300Hz/100Hz/10kHz/3kHz/1kHz ???? If an anyone can advise id been very gratefull. Lorraine

    Hi there, thank you so much. I was not expecting it to be possible. I have conected the (white+red)audio outputs and it works great, but for fear of it blowing up I only tried it for a few seconds. Do I still need to a RCA, if so what is one of them????THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU TIME AND ADVICE REALLY APPRECIATED!!!! Lorraine

    Thank you so much for your help, this is an amazing site. Fingers crossed it should be ok, my only fear was blowing the speakers up as I thought the TV would be too powerful.Thanks again, Lorraine

    so I recently hooked my whole a/v setup into my JBL Monster. Themonster is designed to play ipods so its only input is an 1/8" jack(which I assumed was Mono.)

    When I hooked up the equipment (viaan 1'8" cable from the tv headphone jack, (I also tried directly from the DVDplayer using RCA-1/8" cable) it only came out of the right speaker. I went to radio shackand got an 1/8" stereo-mono adapter. Now the sound only comes out the left speaker.

    Ido have an RCA-1/8" adapter. I am not sure if it is an RCA to 1/8stero, or an RCA-1/8" mono. One would assume that this may solve theproblem.

    I bought the 1/8" Stero-Mono Adapter. It made it mono with soundin the left channel only. Without the adpater it is still mono but inthe right channel.

    What do I need?

Hi there ! Sure, it's possible to connect such speakers on a tv. Usually, you're gonna have an RCA (white + red) audio outputs on the back of the tv in the A/V connections. That's the one you want to use ! That connection may, or may not be variable, and usually has a configurable behavior through the TV's menu, in the audio submenu. You wanna look for 'Audio Out' or similar. The speakers probably have a 1/8 of an inch mini stereo connection, which is meant to be connected on a PC sound card. You only need a RCA to 1/8 Mini Stereo adapter, which can be found at a dollar store, radio shack, best buy or any electronics store you got close for 2-5$. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

    If you had them connected and they work, it seems you have the correct hookup. You could post a pic of how you've got it connected if you wanna make sure, i'll see if it's ok or not ? Thanks :) cheebster.

Zenith inteq iqb50m90w has no sound, hooked up cable box with component cables

To be honest I do not really understand clearly your issue so I will pose a few questions that might clear things for me up:

1. No sound from internal speakers.

2. Speakers have be checked and are not open, disconnected or switched to external or variable audio out only.

3 A DVD or similar connected to a rear video and audio input has no sound.

4. The set had sound when hooked to the bose system.

Do I understand correctly or did I miss something?

If all the above is correct the set has a audio output problem (old trick is put ear directly to a speaker and see if anything, a buzz, faint sound or nothing at all.)

Sound does not come through speakers just hear the ipod

Did you find a solution to your problem? I have just come across this problem myself.

I have a 16GB 5th Gen iPod, and I am using a compatible (brand new) Hitachi AXM204UK Micro System. The Micro System produces brilliant sound on the CD and USB settings, however when my iPod is docked ( and is responding to charge and the remote control) it doesn't produce sound. Apart from the internal speakers.

If you could help me, that would be brilliant. :)

DVDs still show brilliant image. Absolutely no sound from speaker

check to see that the audio connection is correct,yellow video, red and white is audio, if you have hdmi capabilities make shure the cable is not used or dammaged ,that was one thing that happened to me and would only show a picture , i went and got a new one and that solved the problem ,but don,t go run out and buy one before you find that is the problem , just check with a cable that you know is working and if you are using hdmi , check to see if your rca cables when connected do the same thing , this is a way to isolate the issue , all in one dvd surround sound systems are handy but not practical , when you get into seperates it,s easier to solve the problem ,also check your warranty for possible warranty repair .hope this helps ,sincerely glenn

Bose 123 Home Theater speakers started crackle sound?

If the wires are bare on some parts and touch eachother that will most likely be the cause.

Surround Sound gets static

I'm trying to understand if the speakers are connected directly to the TV, or via an amp. If you have an option try connecting them through an amp so that the TV doesnt have to amp them, you'll get better results. even if there was no static in the first place its a better idea. Good luck!
