JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working

Basically I have just bought JBL creature 2.1 speakers and the subwoofer is fine, and so is the right speaker but the left speaker is not working? The light doesn't come on the left speaker but it does on the right and when I test the sound the left and right speaker sound both come out of the right.

I went back to the Apple Store and I got new ones and the same problem has happened. I even connected it to my friends laptop and it's still not working (the same problem, just subwoofer and right speaker working and playing)

Anyone who can help?

    I have the good ol JBL invaders. But the speaker on the left is not working as loud as it should. If I put the volume full up, and I put my finger on it, I can hear it a little :). The light is still on. The right speaker and the Subwoofer is fine. Any hints what I could do about the malfunctioning speaker? txs

Hiya

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

    Thanks to the guy that noted the triangular shape of the left speaker cable's rubber jack casing.

    It's odd that I've fixed it many times before over the 5 years I've owned these speakers, but without really knowing how I did it.

    My brother was chucking his speakers away because he thought they were broken. I took them on, took them apart, didn't notice anything. Then googled it and realised I wasn't pushing left speaker in properly!! Thank you!

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

How do I open a UC-280 2.0CH USB Powered speaker system to reconnect the broken cable.


Once you open the speaker it will destroy the acoustic properties and make the speaker useless. The speakers are assembled with takp and glue and have to be pried apart.

I have a Rowe R80 jukebox and after moving it it has no sound through the speakers I am in New Zealand


Well, in addition to all the fine suggestions that are here, I would like to add the simple and easy things that may have happened during the move.

IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING A LOUD POP WHEN THE MACHINE IS POWERED ON.......

1) Make sure that the wires on the terminals below are still connected to the screws. There is one ground and one each for left and right. The lower the tap the lower the (max) volume of the jukebox.If they are not connected there will be no sound.

There is a jumpers on the terminal strip where the volume control connects. Make sure that these connections are correct and tight. Also make sure that the jumpers did not fall off.

If you are getting the loud pop in the speakers when the power is turned on .....

Check the plug on the side of the mechanism, just below the back of the tone are.(looks like a little tube socket) Check to see that it is connected to the mech and the CORRECT PLACE on the amplifier. It mat be possible to have this end in the wrong place. bf77613e-82a3-4e37-b8fe-cc80f4d4dbcb.jpg

Check all all your connections against the pic.

I hope this was helpful.

Sound problem with JBL Creature II


I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower.
I decided to take it the speakers apart.
I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again!
I hope this helps someone!
