I'm trying to hook my BOSE 3-2-1 to my MAC, but can't get the top right speaker to play.  The base and the top left sound great, but not the right one.  I troubleshot the right one and it does work, as I put in a CD and all three work.  I bought a cable that plugs into my MAC audio port and out to the BOSE back end with the three prong (red-yellow-white) end.  I've tried CAB/SAT and TV as the inputs on the bose, but only CAB/SAT gets sound outta the two speakers, but not the third one.  

Is there another Cable or way to hook it all together to make it work?  Thanks for any and all help.

I don't think this is the right subforum to ask the question, but no harm.

I think the cable is the problem. You probably need a cable that is audio only, the end plugging into the mac should have two black rings, not three - since the audio jack on the mac outputs only audio (I assume)
