5.1 GMX ProMedia Issue

I dont know where else to post this. I dont know exactly know what these things are called but, in the back of the subwoofer theres the little port things with the holes for you to stick the speaker wires in, one of them isnt working for me. I try that particular speaker in another hole and it works... can these holes die? What could be the cause one of these little speaker red/black hole things are not working? what is the name for these holes? lol

Re: 5.1 GMX ProMedia Issue

The jacks on the back are probably for an amplifier output and you probably have had the speaker wire stripped too long possibly shorting out the amplifier as this is a common problem, if not stripped too long it may have just failed, also you need to check by unplugging from back of computer and hook up to a walk man or something with a headphone jack, see if still dead, might also be the cable from the computer to the speakers. Good luck. :-)

Everytime i plug in my speakers and turn the power on the fuse imediately blows...ive changed the fuse and the two fuses on the inside of the sud dont look blown what should i do...these are the best...

Yes I have had these for many years. Work great. However there is a resistor that has been known to fry. Due to the connector plug (which is a flaky round pin connection.) arcing and once that happens it. You get current overloads, hence fuse blows.
Unfortunately parts are scarce and not label easily to get replacements. So I just bought new

hope this helps

Noise from speakers when playing basses


Offhand, could either be the subwoofer speaker itself or the electronics (amp and/or crossover). One way to determine is by physcially checking the sub speaker. When playing with bass on, pls try restricting speaker movement by pressing on it and see if the noise is reduced. Another is to temporarily replace the speaker. You can try speakers meant for the car, home entertainment or book shelf, just dont set the volume too high.

If the speakers are ruled out, then it would be the electronics inside. For this, you would need familiairty with electronic components and circuittry, a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to an oscilloscope and an audio signal generator would be nice but not a necessity. The idea is to inject a constant audio signal and determine where the noise (if electronic) is coming from. In most instances, it would be a leaky electrolytic capacitor either in the input stage or feedback loop. At other times, it would be also a capacitor in the band pass filter.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Subwoofer not working

Hi, What speakers (+sub) are you using (brand/model)? You have to consider whether it is basic 2, or 5.1 or 7.1. the Dell Dimension 9200C uses multiple sound connector at the back, the center/LFE connector (orange) should go to the sub-woofer in a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system. An online manual is available @ Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
