Question about Logitech Z-560 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Shorted Sub-woofer While moving a few things around, the sub-woofer came un-plugged from my PC. Lousy sound came next - think sizzle - and now, no more sound. So, is there something inside the sub-woofer that can be replaced/repaired? Before I pull all the set screws, etc. out? There's no reset or external fude that I can find... Thanks in advance, Monty

Re: Shorted Sub-woofer

Try this site first; but it sounds as if something has fried in the amp - if you look inside you may well see some burning marks around some of the components. Another possilility is that the cable being pulled out pulled something inside the speaker that has damaged the cone or more likely the power supply , but the symptoms you describe suggest an amplifier issue, possibly caused by damage to the power supply system. Hope this helps :)

The sub woofer had a distorted sound.

the distorted sound coming out of your sub-w is actually originating from your audio unit, Have your audio unit check for possible repair

I just got my system today. All the speakers are working, except the sub-woofer. Any ideas what could be wrong (if not DoA)?

Did you connect power to the sub-woofer? Most subs have their own amplifier. Just check if there is also an on / off switch on the sub.

Short in subwoofer wire - Altec Lansing computer speakers & sub

yes, you can splice the cables and put on a new connector, goto radio shack with the old connector and im sure they will have one you can splice right onto it. ive done this many times with varios equipment "headphones speakers etc" it may take a couple of tries to get the wiring right but if its just one speaker there will most likely be just 2 wires, if you wire it up and it doesnt quite sound right, wire it the other way. speakers will work wired backwards but wont sound quit right so if it doesnt, rewire it and it should. good luck and i hope this helps!

If i increase the sub woofer volume the voice distorts and gives a buzzing sound. it works fine on low volume

Your sub woofer is not mean for voice sound...check that you have connected the systen up properly and that you have put the sub woofer into its wn connection..if it is in the right connection the woofer could be blown.also try decrease the midrange hurts on the woofer

I just moved my stepson's computer and I *think* I hooked up the speakers right. It is a 3pc Insignia speaker set with the floor sub. He had headphones plugged in before. We removed the headphons, and now...

If u have been supplied with a driver cd u  should probably try running the disc instead of sutomatic driver installation by vista.Or maybe u got the jacks mixed up.
check it out.

Are these speakers that you have to plug up into a wall outlet. If so, the noise you here is the electricity flowing through the speakers as sound is made. If you turn the sound down on the sub and turn it up on what you are trying to listen to, then you can reduce the backround noise.
