Check the configuration on the pc if this is what you are connecting it to and make sure that there is not an option to reroute the sound out the audio jack. Also make sure that the sound level is turned up for the audio you are trying to listen to such as wave.

If this is for a radio or an ipod type of device make sure that the jack is in all the way and not just most of the way. If it is not in all the way you can hear static but not the sound.

Lastly, make sure that you have it plugged into the audio out and not the microphone input side.

Alot of static or interference through speakers


Check all leads are plugged in the right spots and are in good condition. Sometimes "static" is caused by plugs not connecting properly.

Hello. I just purchased these speakers and there is a low static hum in them. Also, if I turn up the bass volume on the subwoofer I get a deep hum and no sound. Any assistance would be greatly...


Double check your wiring again, sounds like something is either not hooked up right or maybe you got faulty speakers. There shouldn't be any hissing or humming in any speakers. Get a flash light and make sure you have it in the right spot on your computer most sound cards have about 5 different jacks you could have simply put it in the wrong jack.

Try another set of speakers on that motherboard. If you still get static then you know the sound chipset on the motherboard is going bad. At that point you can replace the motherboard or buy a sound card that plugs into one of the PCI slots. If you try different speakers and they work then you know the old speakers are bad.

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.

Hi there , the green light just means its getting Power, it doesnt mean that its going to give sound, It could be that you dont have Drivers installed for your Sound card which is causing it too not get sound , but when it makes that static noise , its the Wire just causing Static with the Sub , just means its getting power , The + and - sign is the volume control ...Try see if you can turn it louder with the + . maybe it is low enough not too hear.....Hope this helped Bud

Static in the sound


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.
