Speakers work,dont work

I am constsntly needing to strip and restrip speaker wire. Speakers work and then they dont, then they work then they wont, then they work then they wont. no customer support. support line is unanswered and voice mail is full and not taking anymore messages. go figure. Durabrand has got my money, now they dont care weather or not their product works. Suround sound is not that difficult of technology. Durabrand just uses cheap materials.

Opening the case and changing the speaker wire to a heavier gauge speaker wire will correct this problem and as jeffcarlson7 says soldering the ends but there is a better way also is to go and purchase connector ends at the local Radio shack and solder those to the end of the desire speaker wire.

Try a light, clean coating of solder on the ends of the wire strands after you strip them to make the ends like a solid wire. this will give the wire jacks something to bite into.
without further info I would only guess that the tension is weak on the spring loaded buttons or speaker jacks

My speakers arent working, also saying there is no driver installed please help.


Well first of all you ned to see if the speakers are ok y can acheive this by placing two wires onto a 1.5 volt battery and listen for a crackle depending on the conection you might have to tape the wires to the conection to start with on on the bottom of the 3.5 mmjace and one near the top fo the jack around the side dont let them touch otherwise it wont work if you do hear a cracle when you conect the battery then the speakers are working or trry a diffrentset of speakers on youre computer and se what happens

Speakers used to work fine and now don't. Sometimes you get just a bit of sound and then it stops. The regular sound on computer works and I've checked all volume settings.


This looks like a loose contact, probably in the speakers connector. Try gently wiggling the wire as if to "push" it into the connector. If this restores the sound, temporarily of course, you'll need to purchase a similar audio jack, cut off the old one, strip its wires and solder them into the new jack - three minutes' work if you're familiar with a hobbyist soldering iron.

My Logitech 2300 Right Speaker Wont Work The Problem Seems To Be The Port In The Back That You Connect The Wire To But I Dont See Why It Still Wont Work


It can be the speaker has a short in the wire. I had several speakers have a little short in wire. They would work only if i moved wire a certain way or play with it. Had to open up one to find the short and fix it.

Subs dont work


To test speakers.A. Unplug speaker wires.
B. connect a 9volt battery to each speaker,touching one wire to the negative and the other to the positive breifly. The speaker should extend outward or inward, simulating the pumping of the cone. Depending on the polarity of the DC voltage hooked to the battery.
That's why it is important to wire the speakers correctly. Pos to Pos Neg to Neg.
You should know if the speakers or wired in series or parallele.
Google speaker wiring. Very informative.

Headphone jack must be moved around to get right speaker working


You will find that sound comes from the right side speaker only when it is bent at a certain point. By trial and error you can roughly locate the point. Then you can cut the wire at that point, cut 1 inch each from both ends, strip the cables, and connect the conductors. What has happened is, due to unusual bending, the conductors to the right-side speaker has damaged (broken). After roughly locating the place and removing 1 additional inch each, you will remove the wire section with the broken terminal. Now you can strip the wires and make the connections again. If you are not good at stripping and soldering wires, better to to take it to an electrician. (You need to take only the headphone pin and parts attached to it). This repair won't cost much. Good luck!

One speaker wont work


if u have experience with the soldering of the terminals then you can open the speaker casing of the sub woofer and then solder the right speaker input wire.

dont do this if you have no previous experience and DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY before doing any work inside.

5.1 GMX ProMedia Issue


The jacks on the back are probably for an amplifier output and you probably have had the speaker wire stripped too long possibly shorting out the amplifier as this is a common problem, if not stripped too long it may have just failed, also you need to check by unplugging from back of computer and hook up to a walk man or something with a headphone jack, see if still dead, might also be the cable from the computer to the speakers. Good luck. :-)
