Sgangsta91,

i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

My Paradigm PDR 12 subwoofer has started to make crackling noises. Is this an amplifier malfunction?


Depends when it makes these crackling noises.

If it's when the sub isn't being driven, then it could be the amp. (Check for bulging capacitors on the amp board). If it's when you move cables about then it could be a broken lead or a dry solder joint on one of the inputs.

If the crackling is when the sub is running then it might be the voice coil has distorted due to being overdriven with a poor and highly distorted signal.

Cyber Acoustics CA-3618 subwoofer cuts in and out.


Crackling noise and cut outs generally mean that the speaker is torn, or the cone is separated from the driver. This means the speaker is broken irreparably. It sells for $40 now, which means it is not worth fixing. These low cost speakers are built to not be taken apart.

Crackling Sound From Subwoofer


Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection.  Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.

If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out.  See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.
