Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My subwoofer sound is distorted

\015 I own an Acer Aspire 8920g laptop. This has dolby home theater speakers built in. The problem is with the built in subwoofer which seems to distort the bass sound for no reason while playing music. It sounds as if something is rattling but I think that can't be what it is since when i listen through the subwoofer speaker the sound is distorted also this only happens when i play through the laptop speakers.\015

Answers :

Whatever player are you using must be having Equalizer in it...try adjusting that [keep that down to a minimum].\015\012Check the program for your audio device...some programs have sound options like jazz,rock,pop these are predefined equalizer changing these could also help.\015\012Try using a different media player like VLC [it's free to download on the web]\015\012Try uninstalling the audio driver and then reinstalling the driver.\015\012It is quite possible that your speaker doesn't match with the Laptop's amplifier or the speaker is gone kaput [a coil problem or something needs repair...but do not repair rather buy a good speaker coz repairing loses the quality].

My right speaker and subwoofer are not working correctly and I believe this is due to bad connection involving the wire on the rear of the subwoofer labeled "speakers." Is there anything that I can do to remedy this? Sometimes the sound seems to respond to "wiggling" the wire, but mostly now the right speaker just doesn't work at all. The subwoofer is making sound, but I think it is distorted and not as loud as it used to be.

Distortion I purchased the BA Media Theater new and had it for several years. It was working fine for about a year and a half, but it came down with this intermittent distortion problem. It would start off playing silky smooth, but every now and then it would sound overmodulated. I could only listen to them for less than an hour before the distortion kicks in. That was then. Now it distorts every time it's on. It has some circuitry for a surround processor, subwoofer control, white
