1 year old iMac speaker buzzes and sounds distorted

\015 During the last 3 months I've noticed that my iMac speakers sound tinny and fuzzy, especially during low tone playback of music. \302\240I took it to the Genius Bar and when the tech checked it out to my surprise we couldn't hear the buzzing. \302\240Made me look crazy! \302\240I brought it home, fired up iTunes and immediately the blown out speaker vibrating resumed. \302\240I've moved the iMac to a different location in my room and placed padding below the unit; however the distortion persists. \302\240Is it possible that the environment at the Genius Bar (i.e. large, open air store setting with lots of background noise) made it impossible to detect the distortion I've been experiencing at home. \302\240Also, is this a driver issue or the speaker hardware itself? \302\240Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.\015

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

I have a set of Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers that are now about 6 years old. In the last few months the sound level has gradually faded to near zero...even with all of the volumn controls set to max. Given the wiring arrangemnt on these speakers I don't believe that I can try them out on another computer. Hence I don't know if the problem is with the sound board, the sub woofer, or the volumn control on one of the four speakers. Does anybody have a clue as to what has gone wrong. BTW: I hav
