Having problems with your Boston Acoustics MicroMedia Computer Speakers ?

I don't think my Micromedia speakers are hooked up right - I can't get any sound!


Answers :

One is for a microphone input, one is for a line-in from an auxiliary source, and one is an output for the speaker system. If you system has more than these three, it is possible it is configured for surround sound in which case you'll need to set it up for stereo speakers and connect the speakers to the appropriate jack.
