Logitech makes a few models of 7.1 surround sound speakers for computer systems to optimise your gaming and video viewing experiences. Fortunately, all of their 7.1 models are installed using the same method, so no matter which model you have, you can be sure that the set-up process will be the same. Logitech, like many computer audio companies, colour codes their cables and ports, making the installation process a fairly quick and easy process; just match the colours and you'll enjoy crisp surround sound in no time.

Place the centre speaker on top of or in front of your monitor and place the left and right front speakers on the appropriate sides of the desk. Place the left and right rear speakers behind your computer chair. Set up the subwoofer on the floor near your desk. Leave 6 inches of empty space surrounding your subwoofer to keep it properly ventilated.
Plug the satellite speakers into the back of the subwoofer. The cables and ports are all colour coded and the ports are labelled to match the cables to the proper speakers and ports. Plug the remote control into its respective port on the back of the subwoofer.
Connect the input cables from their respective ports on the back of the subwoofer to the correct output ports on your computer's sound card. Your sound card's ports should also be colour coded but, if they aren't, they will be properly labelled. The green cable will go to the "Front L/R" or "#1" port. The black cable will go to the "Rear L/R" or "#2" port, and the orange cable will go to the "Center/Sub" or "#3" port.
Connect the power cable from the subwoofer to a an electrical socket and use the remote control to switch the system on. Use your computer to play a video or load a video game and reposition the speakers as necessary to optimise the sound quality.
