I am assuming you have the ACS 48's as your question was on this page. If not, these tips may work anyway. Firstly, the bottom plastic stands on the ACS 48 tend to rattle obnoxiously after awhile. Simply glue them on or somehow make it so they don't rattle. You can remove them easily to see if this is the problem. The face covers can also rattle, take these off as well, and see if that solves the problem.
The second problem I had was related to the tweeter in one speaker rattling also. I took a freshly sharpened pencil, and simply ran it around the far outside diameter of the tweeter between the case and the tweeter. Be carefull here, you could puncture the tweeter. If not deft of hand, have someone do it for you. Hope this helps
Thirdly, and most complicated, one or more of the drivers are blown. Find a used ACS 48 system on ebay, they are fairly cheap, or have the midranges resurounded at an audio speaker rebuilding shop. Not sure what to do if the tweets are blown, but if it were me, and it surely will be the longer I have these, I would take them apart, pull the tweeter, and try to buy new ones of better quailty. Thinking of doing this anyway. lol These are awsome speakers compared to what I hear in stores these days.

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 beomaster 2200 and the sound will only come from one speaker, I have checked the speakers and these are ok. When I move the balance control I get a loud crackle noise. Many Thanks John Bailey


if the loud crackle noise is in the speaker that doesnt work you may have a problem with the balance control itself or int. contacts in the switchbank.clean and lube both for starters.

Hi. When switched on the speaker makes a loud constant crackling sound. Nothing will work, no keys, stops, anything. Just a loud crackle!


This usually means that the speaker is blown. Try running through a different setup and see if it fixes the problem. Hope this helps

Continuous crackling from TV speakers


I'm sure you have figured this one out. TV itself is causing the problems.
The circuit board that produces the audio signal seems to be the problem.
Before you call the repairman, go to the web site Shopjimmy.com just to get an idea of what the parts will cost. That way he doesn't rip you off.

I hope I answered your question correctly. Please rate me. :)

Bose 901 Series IV BLOWN?


Yes, if you hear any sort of crackling sound, that means it has blown. Given the cost of these units, I would suggest repair. I would also suggest contacting Bose, as many of their products have a lifetime warranty, so you might be in luck. Although, blowing your speakers because you made your speakers go louder than they were supposed to, is no covered in the warranty.

You can approach the repair in 2 ways..
1) Send in to Bose for repair - suggested
2) Take it to a service center, and see if they will be able to recone the speakers or replace. Most service centers are familiar with the 901 series, so you should be ok. If they have no idea what your talking about, stay away.

But yes, they are worth fixing.
