Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Soundstick problem When I turn my PC on, even without playing music, I eventually get a crackling, sometimes screeching sound coming out of the speakers. When I pull the cord out of the sub, the sound stops. Not sure what to do.

     I have the same cracking sound problem, and have determined that the source is the connection between the soundsticks and the subwoofer.  Does anyone know how I can fix the loose connection?

    yeah mine do the same thing every time i plug them into my mac book and unplug them from my mac book they screech and give loud feed back noises. the source of the problem seems to be the wear and tare of the plug head. I don't know how to fix it and it's really annoying. if anyone knows anything about this issue please get back to me.

My hp mini sounds distortd when i play music like a crackling sound


update the sound drivers. most of the time when crackling happens it comes from bad drivers. if that does not solve it, then check the levels of the speakers. if all of that is fine then you may have blown your speakers from playing them excessively loud

I have a powered sub for my surround sound and every now and then its starts crackling and popping. i can make it stop by playing with the volume knob or even tapping it sometimes. my old sub did the same...


Does the crackling and popping sound comes only from the sub, or from the other speakers too? Try switching of to check. I think that it is problem on volume control potentiometer. In that case all the speakers must sound crackling and popping. If the problem is only in the sub you have to check its connections.

Sound only playing out of one speaker in Windows XP


Go into Sound Settings under control panel. There should be a left-right audio control setting in there.

If that doesn't work, try updating the sound driver for your computer.

Crackleing


No its not EMI.- I have them too and mine are little over a year old. Have noticed the faint smell of electricial burning. Checked the sub and the amp/pwr supply in there must be slowly breaking down. I cant turn my speakers up past 25 percent volume and the crackling/hum gets very bad, We should all be looking for replacement at this point.

It sounds as if you have got your inbuilt microphone active and it is amplifying the sound coming from your speakers, try muting the microphone off through your sound or speaker icon normally on your task bar on right hand side, this happened to me when i first installed a web cam and set up the microphone volume. Hope this helps, other than re installing sound card drivers.
