Prepare your speakers and amplifier to work. If they are not used, then at least covered with dust RUB them. Locate all network and patch cords from the amplifier and speakers, connect them with each other. Usually the connection diagram is quite simple. From the amp one wire goes to the network and two separated on each column. Do not connect speakers to the amplifier when it is enabled.
Look at the rear panel socket for connection to the amplifier. Insert the plug. The other end of the switching wire insert in one of the amplifier channels. Need inputs you can find on its rear panel. Turn the amplifier into the socket and press the On button.
Test the amplifier to connect to the old computer speakers. Connect the old player, tape recorder or record player. The main thing here is to check whether the signal and whether it is transmitted without distortion. It is necessary not to burn the sound card your personal computer. The efficiency of the amplifier and speakers you can also test using bare from one end of the wire that is inserted in the amplifier input. This will show the background level and whether he did, but it is better to connect the player.
Make a cord adapter. As a rule, in old amplifiers input "spatialecology". In your sound card input "mini-Jack". You need to make a cord to connect the amplifier and old speakers. For this you need a shielded two-core wire and two plug - minijack and spatialecology. Solder them on different ends of the wire.
If you have such a talent there, go on radio the market and order such an adapter there. In the store you are unlikely to find it because spatialecology connector for a long time already not in use.
Connect the minijack output of your sound card, and spatialecology - in amplifier input. Run the computer any audio track and adjust the volume on the amplifier. Adjust the volume, timbre, balance, etc. connected to the computer such a system is simple if all required switching. Before each shutdown the amplifier completely remove the volume.
Advice 2 : How to connect acoustics to a computer
Computer speakers are mostly not allowed to speak about a qualitative sound, because their functionality is initially somewhat different. In the current time when the computer is often a substitute for home cinema, musical center, this compromise may not satisfy you. Fortunately, the computer is connected to a modern receiver case easy, thanks to the compatible formats of connectors.
To implement all the capabilities of your sound card it would be better to use a stereo and multichannel receiver which, in addition, enables the connection of digital data transmission channel.
Check the manual of your sound card or inspect its connectors and find the digital output, that will need either coaxial or fiber optic cable. The receiver usually has both inputs.
Connect the digital output of the sound card to the input of the receiver. In addition, it makes sense to connect the analog outputs of the soundcard to the corresponding inputs of the receiver, otherwise you will lose multi-channel capabilities in games (true, especially for Creative cards). Switching between these inputs is usually done with one button on the remote receiver.
Configure an output device for sound on your computer digital interface (for games switch to analog).
Customize your audio filter (such as AC3Filter or ffdaudio) to pass digital stream AC3 and DTS without treatment, but MP3 and others - on the contrary, may be encoded in the AC3 and only then are transmitted to the receiver.
Select appropriate receiver speakers and enjoy the sound.
Advice 3 : How to connect the speaker system to the computer
So, you want to enjoy all the multimedia capabilities offered your computer. This is the best 6 channel speaker system. Indeed, she will greatly enrich your experience from games and movies. Most modern built-in sound card supports 6-channel audio, but the audio still need to check it out.
You will need
- - 6-channel speaker system.
What is the 6-channel audio, or 5.1? The number 5.1 means that the audiosystem includes 6 speakers: 2 rear, 2 front and one center and a subwoofer. Need a subwoofer for low frequencies, and the Central column is a so-called "voice channel". There are digital and analog audio system. The first require special digital output – SPDIF. Analog audio is more common, so will be discussed below.
From sound system typically comes with three pairs of colored cables to connect the speakers to the subwoofer and computer. The subwoofer in the module volume is mounted colored connectors designed for connection of speakers. Connect the cables to the corresponding colored connectors, then connect the speakers. After this will only connect the power and a subwoofer. When connecting the subwoofer polarity, otherwise the operation is quite simple and trivial. In the end all the loose connectors on the module subwoofer needs to be busy.
Now connect the ends of the cables to the computer. To do this, insert the cable from the front speakers (green) to the green connector, the cable from the rear speakers (black or blue) to the blue connector and the cable center channel (subwoofer) in the pink connector.
Next install, if you still haven't done a driver for computer's sound card. To do this, insert the CD in the drive, run the installation wizard and follow the on-screen prompts, then restart the computer. Together with the driver delivered, as a rule, a special utility to configure sound. With its help you according to your taste can adjust the sound of your audio system. There are a lot of settings, but must pay attention to select "6 channel mode" to "5.1 channel mode" or similar. It is necessary to include.
