Bose Companion 3 - Is getting power but no sound

\015 I just replaced my old Harmon/kardon speakers with some new Bose Companions 3s. And needless to say they produce no sound. I have a more than adequate sound card with my Sound Blaster X-Fi Fata1ity, so Im quite puzzled as to why I can't get these to work. The sound controller lights up so I know it's getting power. And I've tried a lot of things to no avail. My know-how is exhausted, can anyone help me out?\015
