Thumbs down Logitech Speakers For Keyboard - 02-06-2011, 04:46 AM

I would like to know if anyone has use the Logitech z-5300 combination of speakers for their kerboard 1-woofer, and 5- small speakers. If so I would appreciate knowing how they were hooked up.
Thanks,
Larry

Hi Larry.

Replaced mine with Stagepas a while ago, but as I remember, you will need 2 mono 1/4 inch jacks from the L and LR outlets on the back of the keyboard,.
Use a twin 1/4 inch input mono to single 1/8 inch stereo adapter to connect to the Logitech control module .

Use 2 speakers for each side, and put the wires for each pair in the same input on the back of the sub-woofer, that way you will get a true stereo effect. Set the control module to "2 channel stereo "

Hope that works

Regards
Gordon

Hi Gordon,

Thanks a lot. I want to set them up again and try them out but really forgot what the hook-up was. I have not used them for about a year.

Thanks again
Best wishes, Larry

Jeanette, These speakers are made by Logitech for computers, believe it or not. Many of the Yamaha players use these for their Keyboards because they have excellent tone and stero effects. depending on the model, some have a wolfer and 2 speakers. some have a woffer and 4 speakers, mine a z-5300 has a wolfer and 5 speakers. the next size up is I believe the z-5500, and has a wolfer much larger than mine and 5 speakers. They also have quite a bit of power. I used mine a short time and did not use them for quite a lengthly time due to some personal problems. I want to use them again with my keyboard but have lost the instructions in order to hook them up properly to the keyboard. That's the story.

I have a s910 and I am wondering if this setup would be ok for me
I, very rarely, play in a larger hall (seniors)and sometimes wonder if an amplifier is needed but cost is a problem The on board speakers are quite enough for the respite centre we play in once a month My fellow keyboardist has an amplifier but only one keyboard can use it I thought perhaps I may pick up a logitech set cheaper As said it is only for the very rare occasion

If you have one of the Tyros instruments (I have a T4) I have learned that you are not getting the maximum sound for your investment. I have today added a pair of KRK ROKIT RP5 Studio Monitors to the setup.
The difference in sound quality is much improved. If you are using just the MS-04 set you are definitely missing out. The Rokits make the T4 sound like a big new instrument with superb midrange and enhanced upper range. Bass can be as deep as you want - but don't cause a tsunami! For about 250 its a worthwhile addition. PROMISE!
You can use together with the MS-04 by using balanced jacks from the separate T4 line outs, alternatively use a pair of RCA connections. I think the 1/4" balanced jacks are better. If you have loads a money - get the Rokit sub woofer too, (later baby later!)

Jeanette - If your friend plugs into the amp system with 1 plug only, you can get an adapter plug . It shaped like a "Y". The bottom of the "Y" (male) would plug into the amp. and each of you would plug into the the other part of the "Y" which should be female connections with your Keyboard male plugs. So one of you can use their keyboard and when finished the other person is all set up to use the same amp with their Keyboard. This would save a bundle of money as the adapter cost is few dollars only

many thanks for the replys
the double jack is a good idea But we play together (same time) and we think it not a good idea Maybe 2x910s would be too much for her little unit I think i should go look at music shop sand see what is OUT there Again thanks

Jeanette,
I see no problem with the two of you hooked up to the one amp speaker as long as the both keyboards are set at the same volume. This is so one keyboard does not play louder than the other. The sound then coming out of the unit will be equal. Try it. It should not hurt the amp speaker at all.
