The Logitech X-530 is a set of surround-sound computer speakers. The set includes five satellite speakers and a subwoofer. Having a surround sound system can bring an increased level of immersion to computer games and movies. If you are upgrading from a two-speaker set-up to the Logitech X-530, the set-up procedure may appear confusing at first. However, the speaker connections are colour-coded to help make the set-up process user-friendly.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Place the speaker with two cables--one with three audio connectors at the end, and the other with a metal connector--on the right side of your desk.

  2. 2

    Place the speaker with a white connector on the left side of the desk.

  3. 3

    Place the speaker with a red connector on top of the computer display or in front of it. This is the centre speaker; and the only satellite speaker with a horizontal orientation.

  4. 4

    Place the speaker with a black connector behind and to the right of your computer chair.

  5. 5

    Place the speaker with a yellow connector behind and to the left of your computer chair.

  6. 6

    Turn all of the satellite speakers so that they face the area where you sit when you use the computer.

  7. 7

    Push the connector on the end of each speaker cable into the same-coloured port on the back of the subwoofer. The right-front speaker has a metal connector rather than a colour-coded connector. Plug the metal connector into the back of the subwoofer and secure it in place with thumbscrews. Place the other cable for the right-front speaker near your computer, and place the subwoofer under your desk, at least six inches from the wall or anything that can block airflow.

  8. 8

    Connect each audio cable to the same-coloured port on the back of your computer. If your computer does not have colour-coded audio ports, use the green connector for the front speakers, the black connector for the rear speakers and the orange connector for the centre speaker. Omit the orange connector if your computer only has two audio ports, and omit the orange and black plugs if your computer only has one audio port.

  9. 9

    Connect the power cable to an outlet, and then push the button on the right side of the right-front speaker to turn the speaker system on.
