This is feed back from a component in the computer or one of the external devices. Try progressively unplugging all peripherals one by one. Came back if nothing reveals it self

Try and unplug the speaker system from the pc does the noise still carry on ???? if yes the sound amplifer in the speakers is at fault if the noise stops then the sound card in the PC is at fault

Subwoofer makes noise like an untuned TV regardless of volume knob

I would suggest your crossover unit has failed in the speaker cabinet. The crossover circuit board separates the low and high frequency content of your stereos audio signal. The low frequencies go to the bass unit (woofer) and the high frequencies go to the tweeter speaker. If the capacitor on the crossover goes open or near open circuit then noise is introduced into the sound system. Replace either the capacitor or crossover unit.

I have Bose Companion 2 Series ones and the left makes odd noises

> I turn the volume to a low it still has the odd noise
If there is any drive to the speaker at all (volume not turned off), the rattle is probably coming from a broken 'surround;' the part that keeps the cone centered around the outer edge.
Another point of failure is a structure called a 'spider' that is located between the voice coil and cone that ensures the voice coil stays centered.
If there is hum with the volume turned completely down, the amplifier driving the speakers (internal or external) has a failing filter in the power supply.

Harmon kardon hk695-01,13 - Intermittent "gargling" noise

the noise is sometimes caused by dust in the volume control.
i would suggest blowing the dust out around the volume control if there is a manual control on the unit. use a small can of compressed air.. buy it at local walmart or computer store.

Crackling noise from subwoofer????


i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

Feedback noise in speakers and Woofer.

hi wfj1310,
that feedback comes from the distance between the mic and the speakers only. Low the record level from the mic and make the distance bigger.

it makes feedback with any speaker, not only with woofer :-/

Noise when changing the volume and connecting speaker to anything.

firstly check the cable, some times it may in loose contact
otherwise any radiation equipment is located near by the amplifier,
sol. replace the location of the amp. and check cable loose contact

other wise
it is due to its amplifier IC problem, it is weak due to over load signal, or temperature of IC make leakage
sol.replace IC

Subwoofer has a constant vibrating tone that will not go away

I suspect that what you are hearing is the 60 cps of the mains. If the humming sound is coming the subwoofer itself, then it is possible that you have a defective/leaky capacitor in the power supply section of the subwoofer. In the subwoofer, if the buzzing sound is coming from anywhere else other than the speaker itself, then it is possible that you have a loose transformer again in the power supply. Unless you are comfortable working with testers and soldering irons, I would suggest an electronics technician who should be able to diagnose and fix it for you.
