You have to connect your speaker's audio input cable to a nearby source, like a TV or music system, so that it can play sound. To do this, you'll need to connect it using the red/white and black/white cables in your package. You're probably wondering why there's only one set of red and white wires instead of two sets like I mentioned earlier. Well, this is because the other set has already been used up by the speakers themselves! So don't worry about them going anywhere they're already attached inside your speaker and ready to go just as soon as you plug them into something else outside of it. Below are steps on how to do exactly that:
Only connect the wires a little ways in.
Only connect the wires a little ways in. Don't let them touch each other and don't let them touch any metal parts of the speaker. If you do this wrong, it could cause damage to your speaker and/or hurt you.
Attach the wires to the connector nearby and ring the bulb in place.
Now it's time to attach the wires to the connector nearby and ring the bulb in place. Don't pull on the wires too hard, as they are delicate and can break easily.
Replace the speaker with one that works by connecting the 3 wires to the tip of the good speaker, then reconnect it to one of the connectors.
Remove the bad speaker.
Disconnect the wire from the connector and reconnect it to one of the connectors.
Connect a new speaker.
Reattach the other end of the cable to a nearby wall outlet.
If you have a wall outlet near the speaker, plug one end of the cable into that and then plug the other end into your speaker. The speaker will light up when it is turned on and playing music.
If you don’t have a nearby outlet but do have access to a power strip (a surge protector with multiple outlets), you can connect your speaker to that instead. Just make sure that any power strips are plugged into their own individual surge protectors before connecting them to your speakers! The reason for this is simple: if something goes wrong with one of your speakers or power strips, having multiple surge protectors connected will prevent all of them from being fried simultaneously by an electrical surge -- which would otherwise be very bad news for everyone involved!
Connect your speaker's audio input cable to a nearby source, like a TV or music system
To connect your speaker's audio input cable to a nearby source, like a TV or music system:
Connect the audio input cable to the TV or music system.
If you don't know how to do this, check the owner's manual for instructions.
Most TVs have a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo mini-jack on the back panel where you can connect an earphone or speaker if you have a cable that fits it. Most cell phones and tablets have either a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo mini-jack or RCA jacks on their bottom edges where they can be connected with appropriate cables.
You should now be able to connect your speaker. Make sure you don't touch any of the wires when connecting them, because it could damage both speakers and cause problems with sound quality.
