My speakers all work, but the subwoofer sound lowers when they are all working

I hooked in every speaker into the subwoofer, and apparently the subwoofer sound lowers 50% or more... And whenever i pull out the rear speaker input, and the front speakers are just working, the subwoofer works just fine, and its the exact same thing if i pull out the front speaker input..Does anybody have a clue about this?

Re: My speakers all work, but the subwoofer sound lowers...

Hi, pls don't get me wrong, but might it be that you are just hearing more of either the front or the rear since they operate on the frequencies our ears are attuned to with the sub just producing the low ones. Other than that, might it be also the placement of the speakers? The front and/or rear are placed relatively higher than that of a sub woofer hence closer to the level of your ears and therefore you can hear them more distinctly while the sub being lower, you probably feel it as well as hear it but not as loud. Since all of them are working albeit the sound level, I can think of no other explanation. If however this is not the case before and that this problem just recently came up, then may I suggest that you bring the set to a qualified service personnel since this involve checking out the individual amplifiers and their attendant electronic circuitry. If you are comfortable working down to component level, you would probably have to start with determining how many amps are inside the unit and diagnosing each one including the PSU. Far chance as it may be, there is a possibility that the PSU is not able to supply the current demands when all the amps/speakers are working. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. Regards.

I am having trouble with the speakers making any sound when I hook the speakers into the Rear Panel (RL RR) of my computer but the speakers work if I use them in the headphone jack. The subwoofer works...

The main reason why the rear speakers are not working because the sound you are playing are not surround sound or a not a stereo sound and check the setting of your speaker. There is an output sound in your speaker but to low because of the set up of your speakers. Try to set it in Hall, Church, or any set up you will notice that there is difference with there volume in every set up.

I just purchased the 2.1 powered speaker package (with subwoofer) from Insignia. I hooked up the speakers and subwoofer but only one of the speakers is working. I can't get any sound from the other one.

Verify the cables are hooked up correctly if one speaker works and the other one doesn't, usually that means a cable is not plugged in in the right spot or not in all the way. Also make sure if there is a balance knob that it is in the center.

Please check the cable using a multimeter. Check if the cable is broken.

Just by shifting the system, I fear if you could have an issue like this. Also check the Subwoofer box if its working or not. Good Luck.

Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times.
The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program.
I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.
