There IS an easy way to get analog signals to work, even IF you do not have the model which has the analog input (no soldering required). You will need the following:
Analog to Digital Converter
R/W male RCA cable (this can be in the form of a male 1/8" mini stereo plug -> RCA male or a straight RCA male -> RCA male)
Single male -> male RCA cable (the plugs must be small enough to not interfere with the connection on the back of the sub; I made the mistake of buying a coaxial cord with a tapered end at first and this did not fit snugly enough, making me think this setup did not work)
Connect the R/W RCA cable to the input side of the converter, the single RCA cable to the coaxial out on the converter and then the other side of the coaxial to the "Digital In" port on the back of the sub. See the following pictures:
Chances are that soldering an analog 1/8" in jack (using the appropriate resistors and capacitors for frequency modulation) into the sub unit will produce a clearer sound, but I have yet to compare. This solution is slightly more expensive (and not as nice looking) as mechanically modifying the unit, but it will allow you to play your speakers with any analog out signal and save you from the trouble of learning a new trade. I also have the issue with the subwoofer hum, so I am going to try the scraping method. Thank you for all of your suggestions and help.
quote Vincent SoudantI have the same speakers. These are as their name says digital speakers. The problem is that the driver in your Gateway computer sent a digital signal to the analog speaker output. Your current PC sends a normal analog signal to the analog output and the boston speakers can't work with that. Finding a driver for your new computer that does the same trick is the only way, but I don't think that is available anymore . If you find it, let me know. On another note I have tried to connect the boston speakers to the digital output of my stereo, but that does not work. Could you try this and report if it works with you?
