Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers

1 Answer

My subvoofer burs

I have an Altec Lansing ATP 3.1 speaker set. With switch on the subvoofer burs (whirrs). Whenever it is powered on, the bur is on and the bur is present regardless of level of volume (loudness) or connecting or disconnecting a sound card or other source device. It stops whirring when I switch it off or unplug electricity.

What could make the noise?

Thank you for your help in advance.
Best regards,
Zsolt

    I agree that it may be some induced noise, but it does not originate from outside but the subwoofer produces it with something inside as a reaction to electric power.
    I will check the jack for damage.
    Thank you.

Induced noise - running signal wire too close to electrical cables.

Faulty/damaged Input reciever (jack) on subwoofer - test by isolating PC, and attaching iPod or other device to check for noise instead.

If the noise is not present when using the isolated source, your sound card output jack is bad, or the soundcard itself.

Speaker is bad or the cable may have come loose. Has it been knocked around? If so it may have pulled the cable loose inside the speaker, try playing a song and wiggle the wire and push the wire in gently to see if it starts to play if it does you have found your problem. If not then the speaker is bad and I don't remember if you can pull it apart and buy a new speaker to install in it. Thanks for using Fix-ya and if this helps please rate this free question.
