Plug the power plug into a wall socket and plug the jack into the green port on the back of your computer. The speakers probably have volume on them but you can change the volume from the computer if you want by pressing Start -> Control panel -> Sounds and Audio devices.

How to Choose Computer Speakers?

Before plunking down money to purchase computer speakers for your desktop or laptop computer, spend a little time determining the potential uses for your speakers. Questions to ask yourself include: • Am I going to need computer speakers to listen to music or watch DVD movies? • Do the games that I play via computer require a certain level of sound? • Will I be completing computer based training that requires me to listen to sound? After deciding how you will use your computer speakers, the next thing is to consider is your budget. Are speakers a necessity for you or a luxury? If you use a laptop computer, it should come with built-in speakers, but a desktop computer requires a component set of speakers. Will I need low- end or high-end speakers? Will I need a subwoofer? Stick to your budget, so that you won’t spend in excess of your plans, once you reach the computer store. However, don’t cheap out. The cheapest set of generic speakers never turn out to be a good deal. How much space do you have for the speakers? Will the speakers be competing for desktop space with more essential items? Are the speakers going to be utilitarian or do they need to match your personality, style and décor? In addition to the standard wired speakers that have been around for years, they also now make wireless speakers. If you think you want wireless speakers, be sure to ask whether or not the set comes with a wireless remote as well. A professional musician probably hears things differently than a professional accountant, and each will define his sound quality preferences differently. For some, choosing speakers for a computer is like choosing speakers for a sound-system, because computer speakers are now made with the same quality and by the same manufacturers as stereo speakers. This article presents just a few simple things to consider when buying computer speakers – the rest is up to you.

How to Set Up Computer Speakers?

Computer speakers differ quite a bit in their function, quality, audio delivery and styles. Depending on what model you buy, the computer it is meant for and how simple or complex its design may be, the process involved with setting up your computer speakers is relatively simple and considered to be somewhat universal amongst all standard models. Computer speakers will continually develop and change with the advancements in technology and computer models to keep up with the newest updates, so it is important to stay posted on all of these changes that affect your own life. When you have purchased a new set of computer speakers, you will need to consult in your instruction manual that came with the new speakers’ packaging. You should also make a point to look over the software details to make sure this new set of speakers is right for your PC.To get started on setting up your new computer speakers, you will first need to find out where the sound connectors are located and hook your speaker jack up to your computer. Almost all computers, irregardless of their make or model, will have a built-in sound card. The connectors are usually located at the back of the computer. These connections are identical in size and diameter when compared to the speaker jack, and there is typically a set of these at the back. If you have any difficulty in locating these connections, you should refer to either your computer manual or you speaker manual’s diagram to help you through this step.The first connector is labeled as a line-out connection. In order to use this connection, almost all models require an autonomous power feed (a battery, electrical adapter, etc.). This particular connector can alternatively be used for the exportation of recording devices. The second connector is used for your computer’s non-powered speakers. Given that the computer is what augments your signal to begin with, connecting any powered speakers may very well end up causing damage to your system. Once you have managed to accomplish these two basic steps (which may vary amongst different speaker models), your computer speakers will be ready to run.
