Logitech Speaker Installation

by Mikhail Polenin

Installing speakers on your computer opens you up to more types of media possibilities, from listening to audio clips to watching videos with sound on the Internet. Before you install speakers from Logitech, make sure your computer has a line-out speaker port, usually colored green. This speaker port fits the connector from your speaker system and relays the analog data for your sound.

Find the speaker cables attached to each speaker. If you have only two speakers, connect the speaker cable leading out from them into your computer's line-out port directly. If you have a subwoofer included with your two speakers, connect the cable from the speakers onto the subwoofer's audio port. For 5.1 speaker systems, you must attach each speaker to its respective port. The speaker labeled "Center" goes into the "Center" connection of your subwoofer. Simply mix and match the colors and labels.

Connect the cable from your subwoofer to the line-out, or green, speaker port on your computer. If you have a 5.1 sound system, connect the green cable to the green port, the orange cable to the "Center/Subwoofer" port on your computer, and the black cable to the "Rear" port on your computer.

Connect the power cable from your Logitech subwoofer into a grounded power outlet.

Turn the volume up using the control pad attached to your subwoofer in order to turn on your system.
