Speakers have crackling sound

The Creative Labs inspire 2.1 2400 system is ~10 yrs. old and the speakers now generate some crackling sound. Is this the rubber that has dried out around the speakers? I took them apart but I don't see any evidence of deterioration on the cones. Do I have to discard the speakers? Try replacement speakers. They were marked 6 watts, 4 ohms I think. How much would they cost to replace? and what would I use to replace them with?
Thank you

Usually, crackling is due to 3 things:

1) the soundcard (or sound device you have them plugged into)
The best way to test this is to plug in another set of speakers or a headset directly to the sound
device, and listen. if you don;t hear the crackling, than consider that idea scrapped.

2.) speaker wiring/cables. Check the wiring for cracks/frayed spots. Do you get any crackling during/after you move the wires? if there is ANY change, for the better or the worse, than you have your culprit.

3.) the speakers themselves. when the first two options above are exhausted, there's only the insides of the speakers themselves to blame. you might not have seen any cone deterioration- but other things could happen, such as deteriorating wiring, etc.

for new speakers, they are relatively cheap- Here in Canada at least, I can get a new 2.1 set for anywhere from $25-60. Although, I'd strongly recommend any of the Logitech brand speakers- most models have subwoofers with unbelievable bass (for the price) through them. I myself have the more expensive Z-5500 series from them (5.1), and I've been more than impressed.

I HVE INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 IN MY DESKTOP BUT CREATIVE INSPIRE M5300 5.1 SPEAKERS ONLY 2 FRONT SPEAKERS ARE WORKING WHT IS THE PROBLEM


Windows 7 only installs generic drivers for your sound card.
you must go to the creative site and download their "software/drivers-package" for windows 7 and from there choose 5.1 mode. ( on my system its called "Audio control panel"
Start - creative - audio control panel

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work


Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!
