Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Noise from speakers when playing basses

\015 This problem just appeared out of nowhere, just started at one moment\015\012and won't stop. I got Creative Inspire 5+1 P580 Speaker. The deal is I get noise mainly from subwoofer whenever\015\012it plays basses. Some speakers also pick it up. If I turn down the bass\015\012level to 0 (subwoofer stops playing), sound is quite ok. Turn the bass\015\012back on and there's the noise. It is not constant though, it goes with\015\012the basses. I tried toopen the subwoofer case to see where the problem\015\012might be, but everything seems fine by look. Interestingly though I\015\012noticed when I pulled out the back panel noise decreased rapidly.\015\012Pulled it back in place and noise increased again. Makes me feel like\015\012the air flow is restricted, and with an extra opening it gets better. I\015\012don't want to throw it away especially when I know satellites are fine.\015\012Any help much appreciated.\015

Hi,

\015\012Offhand, could either be the subwoofer speaker itself or the electronics (amp and/or crossover). One way to determine is by physcially checking the sub speaker. When playing with bass on, pls try restricting speaker movement by pressing on it and see if the noise is reduced. Another is to temporarily replace the speaker. You can try speakers meant for the car, home entertainment or book shelf, just dont set the volume too high.

\015\012If the speakers are ruled out, then it would be the electronics inside. For this, you would need familiairty with electronic components and circuittry, a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to an oscilloscope and an audio signal generator would be nice but not a necessity. The idea is to inject a constant audio signal and determine where the noise (if electronic) is coming from. In most instances, it would be a leaky electrolytic capacitor either in the input stage or feedback loop. At other times, it would be also a capacitor in the band pass filter.

\015\012Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

\015\012Good luck and kind regards.

Woofer popping i have the logitech z-5500 set, and ever since i got it, its hasent been working properly. i havent been able to get any bass out of it, the control unit works though, as well as the speakers connected to it. it makes a loud popping noise, sometimes. the popping can go in and out, sometiems for long periods of times. most of the time, it doesnt make any noise. but when it does, its really annoying.
