My speakers sound like the sound is playing underwater

I've had my speakers for less than a year and recently they have been acting temperamental, sound goes in and out, one speaker sounds much lower than the other. And now they both sound like they are playing underwater. What's happening? How can i fix it?

    the underwater sound on my computer is across Skype, itunes, you tube and radio. Would new speakers help or is the problem in the computer?

It sounds like you have some wireing problems. You might check that out and also try adjusting the bass and treable.

I have a KLH subwoofer which is connected to my reciever and speakers with speaker wire. It is not connected to an outlet. It has recently started making a buzzing/rattling type sound. Do I need to take...


Yes, probably, if you aren't capable of repair yourself. However, IMHO, a replacement will probably cost less in the long run. I have a KLH passive subwoofer myself. I wouldn't pay for any repair if it failed. Replacements are far too inexpensive.

My Altec Lansing VS4121 played excellent sound, even at high volume untill recently. A friend had borrowed them for weeks and I got them back recently. Played music to find out that sound of main woofer...


Hi there,
I think that some wirings inside the main woofer or the tray holding it might have loosed. It could be the speakers were accidentally dropped or anything.
You can bring it to a local store Best Buy, Staples, etc. have it checked by one of them technicians or to see if it can be put back to it's place. I'm no speakers expert but that's the only reason I could think of.
If you are comfortable opening the speaker covers and checking inside the speakers then you can also try to check for some loose parts.
Hope this helps!

Recently, I purchased a used set of Bose 901 VI speakers. They are crackling when base sounds play. What is the problem? Was I duped? Is it the speakers or the amp or the volume. Can I repair?


It is likely that the speakers were damaged by someone playing the system at way too high a level.

If the noise sounds like a scraping, then it is the speakers themselves.
If the noise sounds like a breaking sound then it is likely the amplifier.

Another possibility is that if you are not useing a Bose amplifier, then your amp may not be capable of properly powering the speakers.

I have had my subwoofer for 6 years. It has always


One way to check the operation is to connect a source directly to the inputs of the sub.

A CD player will work fine. Connect the out puts of the CD player to the inputs on the sub. Play a CD.

If you get music from the sub, then no problems with sub.

If nothing, sub has problem.

Could be

A Dead amp.

A Dead speaker.

Velodyne products usually need to be returned to them for service.

Cost is unknown.

Bass speaker moving in out more then normal


If you can't hear the difference maybe the bass frequency which is moving the speakers is below your hearing range.

I think you may have a "loudness" button on that amp -- if you do, turn off the loudness -- this is a bass booster.

But, in general, bass speakers are designed to move in & out a lot. They have to move a lot of air to produce the bass sound.

5.1 Home Theatre - PC


Its due to 2.1 channel sound input from your PC. Your Laptop supports only 2.1 channel sound so all the 5 speakers cant be played at a time! You need 5.1 channel input to work all 5 speakers
