Question about Altec Lansing 221 Computer Speakers
When I play music loud with the bass up high the subwoofer starts to make crackyling/popping type of noise.
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.
