Bass knob not working

When I turn on my speakers and play sound through them the bass is either full on or off as the knob is turned or wobbled I've had the woffer apart and there is no evidence of a fault so must be the turning switch itself can this be repaired or can i just buy a replacement . Cheers Kev

Re: bass knob not working

You need to have the variable resistor, which is the Bass control replaced.  It's defective.

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.

Creative Gigaworks T20 (series I) Left speaker just producing noice, until I turn the Bass knob counterclockwise towards "minus" - then there is sound in the left speaker but even more noice...

The problem that developed with my Creative Gigaworks and other is that occasionally it would not play at all. When the problem occurred, I could eventually get it to work again by turning it on and off several times. I opened up the powered unit (the Right speaker with the controls and found that the wires were really crammed in there, such that a white ribbon wire connector on the bottom was straining to the point of where it was slightly cracked. While playing audio through it, if I touched that wire ribbon, the sound would cut out. So I adjusted the wires slightly to relieve any tension force on that connector and it has not had the problem since. I would open up that unit and check for a similar poor or strained connection. To open the unit, carefully pull off the fabric speaker cover straight off, remove the 4 rubber inserts in the top 4 holes, and remove all 6 philips-head screws in those deeply recessed holes.

The Sub-woofer provides nearly all the base for this particular setup.
On the back .......usually.......but somewhere will have an adjustment
knob or switch.......usually a knob......... turn it up a lil' bit, until you achieve your desired sound settings..........

Also, go into the volume meno of your desktop (windows desktop)
and adjust the settings well as any software your are using to listen to your media, since that will override the default/windows settings during playback.

I hope that helps.

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.

Crackling Sound From Subwoofer

Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection.  Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.

If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out.  See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.
