The sound you are discribing is indicative of a short in the audio cable coming from your amp to the woofer. it doesn't mean that you have to replace a cable, but it could mean that one is loose. I would first try to turn on the unit and then start unpluging each speaker from the back one at a time. If the sound stops then you know that the hum is caused by the last speaker cable you pulled out. It is possible that you could make a temporary fix by twisting the cable back and forth where it connects into the back of each speaker. (Though this would only be a temp fix.) Because these cables are hard soldierd into the the actual speaker, there is no way for a person to simply replace the problem cable.

The other possible problem could be with the cables coming from the computer. You might simply have the cables in the wrong inputs. They should be color coordinated. Yellow in yellow, etc. Or with the system on, unplug these cables one at a time to find the problem cable.

If non of these work, I would bring it back to the store for a replacement system if still under warranty.

Make sure that the input connection ground is good. If that does not cure the loud hum then you have a power supply issue.

My jams plus speaker is not loud at all, can I get it to play any louder?


Buy a Boston Acoustics, "Soundfreaq" (place low), "Big Jambox" (place on desk) or something. They can get plenty loud without waking up the whole neighborhood. List is roughly in the order of costs. I ended up using some Jamo speakers for my surround system in the family room. Onkyo THX amplifiers are nice.

Logitech Z-5300 subwoofer from computer to i-pod problem...


The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturers. From this i understood that your speaker system is new. You surely have the manufacturer's guarantee. So its better to contact them than to get it repaired or replaced for free. Sir please do not try to open the sub as it will void the guarantee policy.

Hope your subs come into play as soon as possible.......
All the best...
