Once your POD is plugged into the computer (USB) and is turned on you need to select the pod as a "playback" device in your sound properties.  You can do this in your control panel on your computer, or right click the speaker in the system tray and select "Playback devices", select the Line6 POD as the playback device and click the "set default" button then click "ok".

When the POD is connected to your computer it becomes your soundcard. You need to connect your speakers to the POD outputs to hear the sound.

The POD's USB doesn't really carry an analog sound signal, even though it can be used for ASIO recording.  As silverhead said, you really need to attach active speakers directly to the POD.  Another solution, which I personally use, is to connect the POD's analog outs to the AUX Input of my PC's sound card.

 

There are some work arounds to use the USB ASIO audio, but there is quite a bit of latency, and most folks find the latency unworkable.
