If you're trying to use our USB speakers with your Raspberry Pi, you may need to check your output settings before they will output any sound:
From the Raspbian Desktop:
- Right-click the audio icon in the taskbar and select the correct (USB) audio device.
In the terminal:
- In a terminal window, Run 'cat /proc/asound/modules' to see what devices are being detected.
- The USB speaker is usually listed as device 1. With the device number of the USB speakers you can now test the audio in a way that tells the test to use the USB speaker (usually device 1).
- Run 'speaker-test -c2 -twav -l7 -D plughw:1,0' - that should play a female test voice through the speakers.
