    Have you tried different media players? Can you tweak your media player, equallizer? Is this a new occurance, did your speakers work without sqeeking when you purchased the laptop? Are you listening to the music to loud?

Laptop speakers often suffer the consequences when you snack while using the laptop, usually while surfing the Web.


Small particles of chips, crackers and other sources of crumbs easily fall into the little holes of your laptop's speakers, therefore causing sound distortion.


This sound distortion problem can be fixed by cleaning out your laptop's speakers with a safe process that does not require any dismantling of the laptop.


Turn the laptop off, unplug the power cord and remove the battery to lower the risk of damage to the computer and electric shock.


Wipe away any exterior debris using a cotton swab.

Dip the cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and swab away to remove any sticky residue.

Rubbing alcohol dries quickly, making it ideal for cleaning electronics.


Use a hand-held vacuum with the brush attachment to vacuum out any debris in the speakers.


A full-sized vacuum may be too powerful and can damage the speakers.

Reinstall the battery, plug the computer back into the electrical outlet and start it up.


Hope this helps

Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

Seems to me the speaker is just plain broken. You'll need a new one, contact your vendor for repairs, or you will have to live with using external speakers/earpieces...

I hope you will get your replacement,
Yannick.

SOURCE: My Gateway laptop says my sound device is working...

It sound like your headphone jack is the default sound device. Go to control panel > sounds > look at the devices listed. Click on the speakers that have a device connected to them. You may have two selections for speakers, but one may be tied to a sound device and the other to headphones. Highlight the sound device and click on make this device the default sound device and hit apply.

Bose 321 power woofer buzzes but produces no audio sound


I assume the other two speakers are working fine. Contact Bose and ask them. Could be a simple fuse. Sounds like a fried speaker driver, but do this first. Take the back off and check the power amplifier for a blown fuse. If none, disconnect the power amplifier. Reconnect the speaker cabinet w/o the built-in power amplifier to a known good amplifier to see if the speaker works. If it works then you know its the built-in power amp that's fried. Contact Bose for a replacement or better yet buy a another one with a higher RMS watt capacity. Wattage ratings in other than RMS are worthless. JBL and Cerwin Vega produce high wattage units. You need to keep the volume lower to avoid the problem in the future.

I think the subwoofer power light should be green when the bass is working and it stays red with very low bass output. Not sure if I blew speaker or if connections are off, seems to be subwoofer itself. ...


If it makes any sound at all the speaker is probably not blown, the connections are probably on and the fuse is ok.

You don't say to what it is attached and if the setup for bass/lfe managament settings produce the same or a different result than program material does.

You also don't say how the sub is driven (speaker level or Line Level) and if it's a full-range or low-frequency-only input. All these things matter, as does your source electronics and its settings for bass management.

Try setting the low-pass higher and the high-pass lower.

The manuals would be a good place to start. Go to retrevo.com.

My 2006 12" L7 kicker sub isn't working like it should. It simply sounds like an extra speaker and produces minimal bass. All the wires are correct, I have checked and rewired it several times just to make...


On the amp there should be High pass and a low pass setting. Put it on low pass cause if its on high pass or in between it produces normal noted like a speaker. Low pass will filter out all the high frequencies.

I have a pioneer gm-x 304 amp. I want to know what are the lpf-off-hpf switches for< and what sdhould I set the input levels to?


Hello packs6,

The lpf-off-hpf switches control the "low pass" and "high pass" filters. When driving full-range or component speakers the filters are usually operated in the "off" position to send all frequencies to the speakers. When driving a subwoofer, the best position is "lpf". If you have a separate amp to power a subwoofer, this amp can be used just for the high frequencies by putting the switches in "hpf".

Input levels should be adjusted to match your receiver output. You don't want the levels so high that distortion results. But you want it high enough for the amp to be able to produce maximum output. Start at about midrange and adjust the receiver volume to a little higher than a comfortable listening level. Adjust the amp gain (level) counterclockwise until you begin to hear the speakers distort. The turn the control slightly clockwise until the distortion disappears. That's the best setting.

Hope this helps.

Which capacitor or resister we use when connecting tweeter with subwoofer, or what do we connect to the subwoofer to get more bass ?


Hello johnwisam,

When using component speakers, it is normal to connect the head unit or amp outputs directly to the woofers and use a "high-pass" filter to the tweeters. Most component speakers sold as a set will include the correct filter along with wiring diagrams. The12volt.com web site shows examples of passive crossovers here.

Amps usually include built-in filters and a means of setting crossover frequencies according to the speakers attached. If the amp is connected to full-range speakers, it is set to "Full" or "BP". When used to drive subwoofer(s) only, the setting is most often "low-pass".

Most stock radios and aftermarket head units are relatively low power and just do not produce enough power output to drive subwoofers adequately. It takes more watts to move the larger cones and that usually means a separate amplifier.

Hope this helps.

I speakers to my laptop


You need an amplifier between Laptop/PC jack to drive the high power speakers/subwoofers. Or buy the special system like Logitech's Speaker system (speakers-subwoofer) that has a built in amplifier already designed for PCs/Laptops. Radio shack has amplifiers of various inputs and power levels.

Awful High-pitched Noise and Echo Feedback


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
