Having problems with your Logitech R-20 Computer Speakers ?

Melting speakers A year and a half ago I purchased a set of Logitech R-20 speakers with subwoofer for my computer, and I was very impressed of the quality considering the price. About six months later I got a new brand acer computer that runs on Vista. 3 months after that, I heard a strange crackling noise coming out of the subwoofer and smelt burning plastic. The power cord and plug of the subwoofer was smoking and melting into my powerboard. I immediately unplugged them, threw them out and got

Doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong.
\015\012it is possible that your AC electrical voltage coming out of the wall is a little high and the R-20's can't handle it i suppose.

I just got a pair of Logitech LS21 2.1 speakers with a subwoofer for my Acer Aspire 3680. A couple months ago, I reformatted my computer & put Windows XP with Realtek HD Audio system on it.

Help!
