RCA cables red, white, and yellow

The red and white are for sound so you should have it, assuming you have connected them into the correct red and white on the TV?they will be next to the yellow, if so is there sound with normal tv services?

Steve:
Did you read any of my questions?

I did and I can give you an answer.

On that model of RCA, the only audio OUTPUT is from the headphone jack. You currently have the Logitech hooked up to the INPUT on the TV which is wrong.

You will need a cable that has a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end and two RCA jacks (red and white) on the other. These are readily available and cheap. Walmart should have them or you can get one from Amazon for about $5. CLICK HERE for an example.

Does that help you? Please let me know. I'll be here.

You were spot on that was the problem however the unit is junk 3 speakers work and 1 does not ad I checked the speaker in a dif. port and it is not the speaker. Also as soon as you turn on the base it is so jumbled you can't even listen to it. I am returning the complete setup and getting a better one. But thanks for your help you know your stuff.
