Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Constant loud muffled noise coming from the sub and speakers.

There is a constant loud muffled noise coming from the subwoofer and speakers even if no song is playing. It used to work perfectly and then randomly this happened. I never dropped it, didn't spill anything on it...nothing ...the only thing that makes sense is dust being collected inside.

Oh and at first only the front left that had the muffled noise and then within a day or two the whole thing became like that.

Just to clarify: if i turn the system on without anything plugged in there is that loud muffle noise...

Oh and btw, the fuse is fine.

    Which jack are you talking about? I tried using a different controller and the muffled rumbling was still there so I'm pretty confident the problem is from the sub itself.

    What can I do to fix it?

    Oh, ok...well the jack doesn't matter. Even if I dont plug anything in (other than the controller) it still has the rumbling noise coming from the subwoofer.

    How can I fix it? Can I send it in and have it fixed? Can I buy specific parts and do it myself? I got it for $180 (or whatever the price was) and losing it would be a real bummer.

Try playing with the connection, sounds to me maybe the jack is going bad or has a shorted connection. Plug it in and out slowly to see if that's the issue.

    the jack you plug into comp for speakers. sub is on of course.. you may have blown the subwoofer.

  • clyde36067 Sep 26, 2008

    Most likely cheaper just to go buy one at walmart or something for about 80 dollars, 70 to 75 watts. That includes subwoofer and speakers. To fix it you would need to replace the subwoofer.

Klh powered subwoofer model ASW10-120B... when you plug in to power... it makes a loud buzzing/humming noise


I would check the caps on the power supply. They are rather large electrolytic capacitors that will look like they burst and/or leaking. When these die, the caps ground and the sub will make a loud buzzing sound. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can replace them yourself. Replace them with the same voltage or a little bigger and same with the size.

If the cap. says 16v 4700pF on it, for example, a 20v 5300pF or a 16v 6200mF cap. will work for this application.

Loud noise coming from subs


All of the vibration from the subs rattled something loose, Most likely is the speaker to enclosure fasteners but it could be the case itself, internal baffles or even the speaker frame itself is coming apart.

I have the Klipsch Sub-10 Subwoofer, and it no longer plays music. Now it hums (vibrates constant) and corresponds (louder or softer) with volume control. Light is home but no one home situation. V


Does the subwoofer have the same hum when the input cables have been unplugged? Many input cables use very fine conductors, which often fail. A bad cable will often introduce a hum and prevent a signal from getting through. If the noise is still present without the input cable(s) connected, then repair options are limited. No schematics are available. There's a daughterboard that has been available, but its failure usually causes the system to die (short-circuit). The cost to repair the amplifier may be close to the cost to replace the entire sub.

Wierd problem with my subwoofers please help


It sounds like your RCAs are pickin up noise somewhere, are your rca cables next to your amp power wire? this could be the problem. Just recheck your signal wires and make sure they aren't close to any significant power cables. Also does the noise only come from your subs or your car speakers to? If it comes from all your speakers you may have a headunit problem... hope this helps

Noise comming from centre speaker of panasonic scpt560 home theatre system


check the cable 1st. If this speaker is powered, you could have a bad shield, or the power is causing a ground loop.
If the speaker is coming from an amp using speaker wire ie: 2 lead + - check the connection and make sure no fraid strands are touching each other on the rear connection.
In addition check your TV, Ap, And speaker system (if sub is powered independently) are all on the same curcuit.
a certain cause for ground looping resulting in hum.

100watt sub


There is a problem wwith teh power supply or the amp section. Does the noise remain constant or does it vary in volume? The sub should have a level control, does the noise vary with that control?

Subwoofer clicking noise


Hi I am afraid it sounds like exactly the same problem I had, Namely the PSU(power suplly unit) is failing, This is a common fault (by reading loads of forums) I contacted KEF today about mine and they say the probably wont be able to source any more spares(due to so many having thuis problem no doubt) So I would suggest contacting the people you bought it from,Under the consumer protection act you should expect an electrical item to "Last a reasonable amount of time" .Mine is 3 years old and I do not consider this to be a long period so kick up and you should be entitled to a repair or at worst a partial refund.Look here basically the same Sub.
