    You have no installation manual? What type of audio or sound card are you using to drive this new sound system?

    Actually i bought it, and the conditions were that i had to take it without the box... there was no big manual
    only some little one saying: in which order to plug in stuff.

    i don't really know my audio card, how do i check this?

    Yikes, no wonder you are having trouble. How many colored plugs are there on your sound card facing the back of your computer. What colors are there? Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, and Black are on my HD Audio panel

    See if this helps you:

    Anyways i have a question
    Does the max volume of speakers depend only on the speakers
    or on the pc and sound card too?

    Max sound depends on the amplifier/ subwoffer. With systems like yours, the amplifier is in the subwoffer case

    soo basicly when i turn it to the max, thats as high as it gets?
    a new sound card wouldn't change anything?

    some soundcard has higher output so by upgrading you may get higher volume. and yes when you turn the computer volume to max and your genius speaker to max, that's the highest volume you can get.
