Maybe you should check the configuration of your built-in sound card.

Altec lansing 221 computer speakers sound solution

Unfortunately it looks like Altec Lansing goofed up on this set and didn't provide a bass control knob. You will need to use some sort of software equalizer on your computer to turn the bass down.

On a speaker on the computer what does the things mean? those nobs

Depending on the speaker versions, it can have a couple or several knobs. One to the left usually controls turning on the speakers and also controls the volume. The other knobs usually control the Bass and Treble sounds coming from the speakers. If you get more specific and give the actual brand, model I could tell you exactly what each is for.

Hope this helps.

Bass sound coming out whenever i move the right speaker

seems like one of the wires is loose either inside the speaker or in the cable leading to it.
best chance is to open up the right speaker ( involvs damage to the plastic , since atp3 speakers are glued and practically unopenable with out breaking)
and then trying to play with the wires `till you find the sourse of the problem.
as soon as you know where the probles is , i`m sure its gonna be easy to fix, again , the hard part is to take this speaker apart.
good luck

Subwoofer not working

Yea I would say most likely a loose wire going to the bass control, is it accessable to behind the controller easily? if so take a look. they are usually soldered, but it may have been a weak solder point that came loose.

Logitech S500 Volume Knob Broken

The simplest thing to try is some compressed air directed to the knob. This would clear out any dust or dirt that may be obstructing the knob. I am not sure what you mean by power cut so I am shooting in the dark here. If you mean a power surge that caused the volume to quit working then I would suggest an external volume control such as

How to repair atp3 altec lansing

Best bet would be to just strip the wire with a wire stripper or utility knife and twist the bare ends together to fix the connection. A little electrical tape around those wires and you should be almost good as new. Of course you might notice some difference in quality but I'm pretty sure the only way round that would be replacing the cable.

Try it out and let me know how it works out for you. If you know how to solder it might be a good idea to solder the connection as well.

Speaker problem

check for the connections! unplug and plug then back! test it! if it still have the same problem then it might be at the circuitry already! maybe some electronic components were busted or malfunctioned already!
if you happen to open it! check for bulged capacitors or loose connected components on the circuity!

Try a software solution- download an audie editor like Audacity. The fault sound like a malfunction in the speaker unit ,which is not servicable.

Speaker/sub bass

Hi, it is possible that the sub volume control is worn out. If your particular brand/model uses the rotary/wiper type (variable resistor) then replacing it should do the trick but this involves soldering which be done by an electronics technician or qualified to perform such repairs/replacement. Hope this helps. Cheers.
