Is it possible to integrate to 7.1? I got 2 additional speakers (Logitech Speaker System Z520), is there a way to add this to the X-540 5.1? Mar 31, 2011
I actually just did this to my set. I have had this logitech speaker setup for well over 5 years now, and I just early yesterday morning thought to myself...wonder if adding 2.0/2.1 speakers would work. For my setup, it did. I simply plugged the 5.1 into three of the jacks (I selected Center/sub (orange), Rear (black), and Side (green cable plugged into grey due to the 2.0 speakers having shorter wire). Then I simply added the 2.0/2.1 speakers into the green jack. You will need to play with speaker audio levels on your computer, but for me, they worked well. I tested in Fallout New Vegas and Batman A.A. and it was great. Can't believe I didn't try this earlier.
No it will not, you need separate connection for a 5.1 system. You either need a high end laptop with the yellow/green/black connectors or a desktop with a sound card or built in sound card. If you have a Dell 630 your only option is to get external sound would be to go with a system that connects though USB.
How long are the cable that are connected to the speakers? Will using RCA extension cables degrade the sound? Mar 20, 2014
I used the extension cables and it sounds ok to me...got to play with the controls to get it sounding right but did after a while... still not sure what I did to do that but works..
I'm sure you can, but that nail polish trick has lasted me ten years do far.
You have to buy a Y-cord connection. It has a red and white connection on one end, and a black or green one on the other end that can connect to ANY laptop.
Can I use these with a PS3 optical or HDMI output? The PS3 only has an optical and HDMI output? Jan 11, 2010
Just use the RCA cables that came with the ps3, and set the audio feature under "settings" to RCA. Your ps3 will still display with hdmi cable and then output audio with RCA. Also if you're using RCA to output audio, be sure to buy one of these with this specific speaker system http://www.amazon.com/Console-Adapter-Convert-Plugs-Single/dp/B0006U3ACY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263445395&sr=1-1 This adapter will give your ps3 5.1 channel surround sound without having to use the lame matrix mode.
Thanks for the specs.
Logitech X-540 Speaker System Cable: Could someone please tell me where I can purchase this cable or what other kind of cable (s) I can buy that would work just as well? Oct 23, 2009
You can just use three regular stereo 1/8" cables. The combining into a single cable and color-coding is for simplicity, since that's the normal coding of the jacks.
