Hello!
 

I got Altec Lansing VS4621 speakers, and I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 Audio Interface.

 

I don't know how to connect these speakers to my interface! If I plug them into balanced output, I hear sound coming only from my right speaker, and it doesn't sound right.

 

Can somebody help me out?

Try a Y-cable to plug the speakers into the unbalanced jacks.

Something like this:

By the way, that thing might have assignable outputs so make sure that you're assigning 1 and 2 to left and right!

Hey, thanks a lot, that sounds like a good idea. I'll see if they have a cable like that in the store.
