Question about Mordaunt Short Audio Players & Recorders

Speaker muffled and distorted

One of my speakers appears to have blown. The bass end is quite muffled and basically sounds broken. All the connections are fine. No physical damage to the speaker. What do I need to replace to get them back in working order (just one of the speakers). And where can I get the part. Internet, or around london.
cheers

Don't know about the type of your hardware, but your description is very light. In order to further isolate the problem, I would do the following:

1. Replace the speaker with a working one. If this works fine, then it is really the speaker that is broken. If however the intact speaker shows the same problem when connected to the same channel, then the amplifier/equalizer has an issue.

If it is by this confirmed that the speaker is broken look at step 2:

2. Inside the speaker there is usually a frequency separation filter. Either the bass loudspeaker is damaged or the filter. Ideally you could exchange filter and loudspeaker with parts from a working speaker box and find out by this which component is defective.

3. Once you have identified the defective component, try to find out the brand and type and perform an internet search.

4. If you don't find anything, bring the whole thing to a repair service, they can order the spare part.

If you are too lazy or technically not very skilled, go directly to step 4.

Hope that helps

Do these speakers work better with an amp? I am playing them now and they sound muffled using a regular shelf system


No models given, so a guess is what you get.

If your shelf system is not producing sufficient clean audio power you'll get distortion, which can kill a speaker faster than excessive clean power. Muffling is something else altogether. Are the tweeters working?

HI CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHY MY FENDER RUMBLE 100 BASS AMP DISTORTS AT LOW VOLUME? EVEN THOUGH THE SPEAKERS IS NOT BLOWN


A common reason for 'distortion' with all bass amps can be either that the screws holding the speaker unit to the cabinet have worked loose or that there has been a build up of dust particles in the corrugations around the edge of the speaker cone, which rattle especially on the lower notes.
The solution is simple - remove the front grille and check the screws are tight. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from the rim of the speaker cone.

New Yamaha AV Receiver and Tannoy Speakers muffled weak bass only


Maybe some wire is faulty... Try to disconnect everything and connect each speaker one by one, first trying only radio tuner and then trying to connect the TV and other devices. Using that you can isolate the fault into the specific component/wire.

My left speaker is loose


The symptom you are describing is exactly what is known as a "BLOWN" speaker or the voice coil has "shorted", this is caused from the volume being up to loud, heating up the voice coil and frying it, in the future if the bass/sound is distorted then turn the volume down just enough to stop the distortion and this will save the speaker.
As far as getting a replacement speaker, you will have to contact the manufacture to get a replacement.
Good Luck !

I think my speakers have blown they sound quite bad and no base to them can they be repaired or would it be cheaper to buy new they are monitor bronze br2 they are only 1 and half years old perhaps i didnt...


If a speaker goes "bad" it usually can not be fixed. Speaker systems use different speakers for different tones. This sounds like the speaker used for bass is not working. Check if there is a fuse in the speaker cabinet somewhere. Also, is there bass gone on both speakers?

Center Speaker Audio Very Distorted


Love your screen name.

You didn't say what, if anything, preceded the appearance of the problem. There might be a clue.

Can you describe the distortion? Is it excessively bassy? If so, is it happening on all sources?

I'm assuming this is a modern digital receiver that is capable of many soundfield simulations as well as native Dolby Digital, DTS, multi-channel. If so we can use a stereo source and through simulation redirect some of it to the center speaker.

Using one of your receiver's many multi-channel simulation modes, put in a CD or tune an FM station and use it to diagnose the problem during later steps.

If it's only a single source and that source uses individual analog channel RCA cables, swap in another one or temporarily move the Center Channel feed to one of the other channels to see if it's before the receiver (in the source).or inside the receiver.

For multiple sources:

Is your Center speaker defined properly as Large or Small in the receiver's setup menu?The size refers mostly to the bass-handling capacities of all your speakers rather than their physical size. Speakers designated as 'Small' will not be sent much in the way of bass because they can't handle it well. The LFE/subwoofer channel(s) will get all the bass that was intended for them instead.

If you have a Small speaker improperly defined as Large it may be getting bass that it can't handle and that might sound like distortion. Having a Large speaker defiend as Small would result in less bass than expected but otherwise 'clean' sound.

Check the speaker setup in the menu for excessive volume level relative to the others. There is usually a calibration procedure the receiver will use to help you adjust the subjective voume of each speaker using white noise or tones.

Hope this helps.

Tweeters & Midrange Speakers


If you have a Ohm Meter, check the resistance to the speakers. If it is very high, the speakers are burned, (or the crossover is (just capacitors, and resisters...cheap)). If it is close to 4 ohms check the wiring and connectors..to and at the speakers, most likly the receiver/amp is not blown.
