    I have an integrated sound on a chipset. I tried other speakers and they work fine. When I do a speaker test on the CSW amplifier decoder the sounds are ok (not intermittent). Since another speaker system works fine, I think I may have blown the power adapter. I found a site where I can buy the CSW DTT2500 power adapter for $19.99. Does it sound like a safe bet, that since the speaker test is ok and another speaker system works fine when I replace the CSW, that the only untested module is the power adapter?

    Same issue here - I hear the faint clicking even when the volume is set very low.  In every mode.  Digital or analog.  I've also tried onboard and SB Live 5.1 outputs.  I agree it seems to be a power issue - but all the lights are steady on so it's bizzare!  
    If anyone resolved this please let me know.  Otherwise the whole system is going in the bin!  (Sigh!)

You most likely need a new soundcard. You can get a Creative Labs Augidy 5.1 PCI card from Walmart in the box for less that 25 bucks. If you get it I can help you install it.

How to disassemble Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble II speaker


I have a pair of CSW Ensemble II speakers; I did this so I could strip the sticky Nextel paint off and refinish the cabinet.

You first need to remove the grill by using a paper clip hook to pull the wire mesh grill off; you will then see screws to remove the drivers and get to the electronics (the drivers have a bit of glue to hold their frame in place but gentle prying popped them free.)

You can pry at any grill hole, but there is a larger one at the top/center edge that was specifically made for this purpose; work around the top or bottom edges so scratches will not be visible. The grill is held in place by sticky tape at the 4 corners so it's easy to re-install.

Humming sound cumin from my creative inspire 4.1 woofer


Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!

I have a new Dell with windows 7 and a new sound card and my Cambridge DTT2500 is not working correctly. Do I need to download drivers? if so where?


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers if you dont have a motherboard disc you will have to download the drivers
cnetdownload.com if these drivers are not suitable on the home page you should see the download software finder under that there will be a list platform, category sub category price fromthe category drop down list select drivers then from the price drop down list select free or which ever applies to your need or you could try some of these

I think I might have my speakers hooked up to my computer wrong. I get no sound. Can you give me instructions on how to hook them up?


If you can get around to the back of your PC they should be colour coded, green to green (speakers) pink to pink (mic) etc,

If they are not colour coded, play something and then get back there and move the port one by one until you hear it playing. You will definitely find the mic port easily as it should have a image of a mic stamped onto the metal by the port, its the speakers that are a bit harder to work out from the images
Let us know how you get on :)

Connecting Dell speaker system to TV or console


Hello,

If you have a coaxial out on your TV and a coaxial in on your Speaker system that is the way to go to experience digital surround sound. Radio Shack, etc. has coaxial cables in the appropriate size. If you go to Radio Shack, etc. bring along your speaker system's model number as well as your TV's model number.

Hope this gets you going.

Playing ITunes from my dell Inspiron 1300


I have a cable made of
- a 1/8" stereo plug (male) to stereo RCA (female)
- 6' stereo RCA cable (male/male)

Plug the 1/8" into the headphone jack of the laptop and the RCA end into the AUX on a stereo/amplifier...

That gives you one room anyway.
