Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

My speakers vibrate, like if you had a moth fluttering around inside your ear drums. I cannot stand having the speakers left on when there is no sound. I have tried adjusting the cables, lowering the bass on the woofer and through control panel. Any ideas greatly appreciated!


Answers :

Speakers have a kind of cardboard like membrane that the wires attach too and a magnet that are used to create sound. The cardboard like membrane can become worn, brittle or might be defective when you got them but if it breaks loose from the magnet or the surrounding frame that it is attached to it can vibrate very easily and create unwanted sounds. There is really no way to repair this that I know of. To make sure you might try the speakers with some other kind of system or computer but I think they're probably broken and might need to be replaced.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR.

Speaker/sub bass When I try to adjust my bass level using the knob on one of the speakers (the subwoofer knob), my bass does not really adjust. It is just either on or off. If it is turned all the way clockwise, its on. If i turn it less than a 1/4 counterclockwise, the subwoofer is just shutoff completely. How can I make it so that my bass can be adjusted and remain on, but just at lower levels of bass?
