Question about Harman Kardon SoundSticks Computer Speakers

Speakers just stopped working

My H/K speakers just stopped working; at first the volume was really low, but then they stopped playing altogether (though if you hold it to your ear, you can hear a faint "shaaaa" noise). I know it's not just the tweeters, as the sub has stopped working as well. I've tried plugging it into a variety of different sources, and have tried it at every powerpoint in the house, all with the same result. I bought these back in August '05, will I be better off just buying a new set, or trying to have them repaired? Thanks

Take the speakers apart and it could be something as simple as a loose wire, that was what it was for me thankfully!!!!!!

You will need to take the speaker apart and with an ohm meter or continuity tester, measure the resistance of the speaker, at the two terminals at the rear of the speaker magnet, to see if that circuit is "open" ("open" is a reading of no resistance, or no continuity). If it is open, you have no choice but to replace the speaker. If instead the speaker measures a low resistance, or the meter "beeps" to indicate continuity, then do the following: measure the resistance/continuity of the wires which lead from the speaker magnet, to the output terminals on the outside of the speaker box. Also, some speaker manufacturers install small fuses inside their speakers. Even if the fuse does not look "blown", test it for resistance/continuity. Good Luck!

ok, if the sound in the headphones is as low then we know it is not your laptop speakers... try to find the laptop master volume which can be controled by an either designated keys or other keys on your keyboard, look for keys showing a picture of speakers on them, they either work directly by clicking them or you need to press the F key while you click them, either way try playing with these and see if anything happen... good luck

Check your connections to your speakers and amp and look for loose wires touching metal. I believe your stereo is fine, this has something to do with your speakers and the speaker wire

sounds like your popping the breaker, after a while your speakers will go, theres just too much power for it to handle, take it to a car audio store and get them to test it, you may need new speakers

Low volume on creature speakers


Your speaker volume must have reset. You have to touch the dots on the right speaker to turn up the volume to desired volume. I just remembered that on my system. Hope this helps.

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume


I had the same problem. Then I read about the volume controls on the right speaker. They are silver buttons for me on the front bottom left and right of the speaker. Now they play really loud!

Possible blown speakers


I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low. But just to be on the safe side, check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, it's time for some new speakers.
