Having problems with your Boston Acoustics (BA7800) Computer Speakers ?

Install Boston Acoustic speakers BA7800 to a new Imac?

\015 I bought Boston Acoustic speakers (model BA7800) with the gateway computer 4 years ago. I've just purchased an Imac from apple and am have problems hooking it up. The three prong plug in isn't compatible with macs single plug. Can you help me? Chad\015

Answers :

Partial Solution anyway - I just got a Mac Pro (2.66 Nehalem )and couldn't find the manual from my old Gateway 700XL. This is what I did: Plug the green wire into the analog output, and the pink wire (if you really need an external mic, but you shouldn't since our new computers both have a built-in mic) into the analog input. Just ignore the black wire. You won't have the 2 surround speakers, but I'm still looking for a fix for that. I got tired of the crappy speakers in my new Apple Cinema display (the ONLY crappy thing about my new system). As you know, the sound from the BA7800 is great, even with just the two front speakers and sub-woofer. I'll keep you posted if/when I figure out how to set up the surround speakers! Likewise, if you hear something, please post here and I'll keep checking back.

Background hum I am now using the Boston Acoustic digital media Theatre speaker set from a Gateway purchase with a new Dell PC. When the speakers are switched on there is an immediate and annoying background hum from the sub. It is apparently independent of the soundcard, and disconnecting any units make no impact until you disconnect the satellite unit withe power switch on-it, at which point it turns-off. Has something fixable failed, is this a mains frequency (50Hz vs 60Hz) consequence, can I
