Speakers crackling and making a 'clicking' sound when volume high

I have had my PC about 18 months; when I first bought it I purchased some Advent speakers for it. These worked ok at first. I stored the PC away (disconnecting everything) when I wnt on holiday. When I connected it all together again, the speakers were making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I turned down the main volume, the clicking stopped but the speakers still crackled. I presumed the speakers were at fault so bought some new ones recently. To my dismay the new speakers were doing exactly the same thing. I am now thinking that the sound card could be the problem (Realtek HD audio). However, in Device Manager there is no problem indicated. Please help, I don't know what to do. Thanks.

I just realized that when I put my Blackberry under my flat screen attached bar speaker the speaker starting clicking. This has happened twice and I shut the sound off in frustration. I just made the connection now. So I moved the cell phone. It stopped.

The cable you are using to connect to the speakers could be duff or the connectors could just be dirty.  clean the connectors and push it in and out of the socket repeadedly to ensure you have a good connection.  Or you could try a different cable.

hi there,
The problem is actually from the speakers themselves. If it's not a year old you might want to bring it back to the store where you purchased it for a warranty repair or replacement.
Sadly the problem is inside the speaker and it could be a loose connection inside. If you're comfortable enough you can try to open the speakers and check inside for any loose wires which cause unstability of sound or for any loosed fittings from the magnet.
Hope this helps!

Need a driver for advent speakers


These speakers should not need a driver. They may need an external power source, or the one you ahve may not be working. Also check the settings on the volume control and sound system software.

Speakers had been working fine for about a month. But recently they have started crackling when I increase the volume above about 1/3 and cut out every couple of seconds if i increase the volume to 1/2.


uninstall and reinstall the sound driver and see if it works if that does not work try the same speakers to different sys. and check if it works the port of the sound card might have gone bad and if the same problem with other sys. speakers had gone bad.

Have external gateway speakers


First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,
Shiva

Sudden crackles in the right surround speaker!


Your speaker is busted. You will need to get another one. It really can not be repaired and if it can, it will cost more than a new speaker.
