Question about Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Static in the sound

I bought these speakers (because they were cheaper....probably should have bought the higher ones after another shopper told me that had a lot of static) at Wal-Mart today. I hooked them up and immediately had static & noise. How can I fix it or can I fix it??

The static is called "line noise". It happens when there is not a lot of protection between the copper wiring that carries the signals and the outside. One way for manufacturers to save money is to put just a very thin piece of protection around the copper wires, with no insulation. Just copper wiring and a thin piece of rubber or plastic. So that is why you hear the static noise, the wires are cheaply made and cannot keep out the signals they interfere with it...hence the cheap price. Wal Mart is good about giving refunds, bring it back and get a better made system. It might cost a little more but the sound will be what you enjoy.

    Yep, that's a fact. Now if you find a good sale on a brand name electronics or computer accesories that's one thing, but buying a cheap brand always goes back to the old saying "You get what you pay for"...thanks for the rating I appreciate it.

Hi - I've just bought a hanns.g Hl225 monitor with (apparently) no speakers. Would it be cheaper to change the monitor or buy some speakers, and if so how would I fit them?


You can get PC speakers for just a few pounds/dollars. Most just connect via a USB port. If you're going for a powerful sound system, then it'll probably have a direct power connections as well as a USB plug. Most new ones will probably come with a connection diagram as well.

Buzzing static sound in speaker


Static can be caused by a few things.

Does the static persist if you unplug the audio cable from your computer?
If so, the static is being caused by the amplifier built in to your speakers.
If not, the static is probably caused by interference on your sound card. Try plugging the speakers in to a portable media player. You might need to replace the sound card in your computer.

There is static coming out of my speakers on my stereo. I I checke to make sureall the wires are connected properly and the power is plugged in securely. There is static with the sound on all...


Don't worry, it's more possible that you have the static electricity and through your stereo this electricity goes to the ground. Try touching another metalic surfasce (refrigirator, oven etc), try to change your shoes (especialy if your stereo is on a carpet floor and you walk on it) Sometimes when we are very nervous the static electricity on our body is higher. So keep calm.

The static is probably coming from the computer sound card itself. Turn the volume down on the computer mixer it should limit the static you are hearing.
