Ear Piercing squeal from altec lansing ADA995 speakers

Hi,

I have the Altec Lansing ADA995 speakers with a soundblaster Audigy 2 soundcard. I bought these speakers with my Dell Dimension 8300 in 2003 and have had no problems until a couple of weeks ago when the speakers just started squealing, my poor dogs run away because it is at such a pitch that must really hurt their ears, it's bad enough for mine. I don't know if the speakers have just given up the ghost or is it morelikely to be the sound card. If I unplug all speakers except the centre one from the sub-woofer it doesn't squeal just the loud hum. The squealing still happens if speakers are plugged in without the PC being on. Please give me some ideas. Thanks

I had the same problem. One day I heard two pops and the speaker, including the power light, were dead. Neither Dell nor Altec Lansing support them. They're throw-aways, unless you know a genius electronics technician.

Why does it emit a loud whistle when turned on?


I got rid of my Altec Lansing because I got white noise when the unit was turned OFF. They are not a good make. You can try moving any wires or magnetic influence away from them. I now own Bowers and Wilkins MM1 speakers which are amazing.

I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

If you are using windows media player check if your player is configured to have an echo. If it is configured remove it. If it is not configured to have an echo and if you are using any soundcard have that sound card check by an expert or by your vendor and let them check it out if it is still under warranty.
