Tip & How-To about Toys

Loud and noisy childrens toys

If you're sick of a toy that makes a huge sound even on the lowest volume setting?
Simply put some sticky-tape over the speaker hole (this'll usually be a couple of little holes or vent looking things) Either cover it completely for a really quiet version, or play with covering only half of the holes and see how it goes!

I just bought Bose Companion 2 speakers which I don't know how to connect to my HP Pavillion desktop PC. The pdf instruction booklet does not help. There are multiple jacks (6) at the back of the tower + 1 jack (pink) at the front. The left speaker hums but there is no sound coming out of the speakers. Do I need drivers?


You need to connect the speakers to the green jack in your PC.

Check your system sound volume setting to make sure it's not set to MUTE or the volume slider is on or near the lowest position - you don't specify what system you have on the PC so I can't give you an exact pointer but Volume Control generally is found under Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

tar like adhesive has gone sticky round speaker cones and volume has droped


The tar like sticky substance is the suspension of the speaker cone and there is nothing wrong with that. Its doping compound applied by the speaker company to damp the speaker ( Was it not always there? ) If the suspension has come off the bass notes will flutter, if not its some other problem. Play some music and put your ears near the tweeters flared horn to see if they working. Nearly 30% of your sound comes from the upper part and if you have damaged it there will be a volume drop.
These speakers are quite complicated on the inside. It has two amplifiers, one for the woofer and one for the tweeter. It also has a digital sound processor. Any thing could be at fault, even a simple wrong setting.

Crackling noise from subwoofer????


sgangsta91,

i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

HIT KC-91 clock alarm


If the manual says you can't chance the volume, then you can't change the volume! You might be able to rig something to make it a bit quieter though...

See if you can see where the speaker/sounder is located (there are usually some small holes drilled in the casing to let the sound out, although sometimes there might only be the one.) Try covering some/all of these with a piece of sticky tape. Other than that, there isn't really anything you can do!

Hope this helps,

Matt

The volume is way to high even on the lowest setting


Sorry I don't have a solution. We have this model and ours is loud also, at the very lowest setting. I disconnected some of the speakers, and sometimes have to put the working speakers into a drawer to lower the sound.
