Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

1 Answer


I recently installed the X-230 speakers on to my PC. The audio voices come across as really high pitched as if they are cartoon characters. It reminds of the old days of phonographs when the voices were really high pitched if the record was played at a higher speed. This is running on Windows XP with Foxfire Mozilla. The internet connect is a cable modem at 5 megabytes.

This is possibly a sound card issue. Your card may itself may need updated drivers. Go into device manager and find your sound card and see if they have any updated drivers from there website. If you happen to have another sound card throw it in and see if it does the same thing. Last but not least is these speakers will work with a MP3 or other device, plug into them and see how it sounds, if your having the same problem with lets say a cd player or mp3 then the speaker itself is faulty.

Sound is distorted and echo's

check the speaker plug/outlets is usually if its a laptop on the side

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is or a can of compressed air

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer

hope this helps

When i play a game such as Battlefield Bad Company 2 on the Xbox 360. The sound works, like you can hear the water flowing, aircraft etc etc, all that is is fine. But when it comes to audio of different ...

Most of the sounds you are hearing good are background sounds. If you are running a surround system, you might want to try adjusting the output of your primary speakers, checking for the correct setting on your receiver, and verifying that your central audio is in the correct section ( receiver output ).

If you are not using surround sound,
Check the in-game menu (Pause) for an audio section, some games allow you to turn the character voices up and the music down. If you don't have that option, try using a new output cord from your xbox to Tv.

Speakers keep cutting out when they are plugged in and a high pitch squeal comes out of computer speaker

How many Audio ports do you have in the back of your computer? Also, what Audio DRIVERS do you have installed in your computer? If you have REALTEK audio drivers, it SHOULD automatically recognize the speakers are being plugged in and change that ports usage over to speaker output, but not all drivers do this. It could simply be that you're plugging them into the wrong port audio port if you have 4 - 6 back there, as some motherboards do. Try different audio plugs and see if that works for you.

When listening to podcasts the voices sound weird

Try updating the drivers for the soundcard. The pitch change could be a sampling rate error.

Alvan and The Chipmunks reside in my Gmax 2100 speakers!

If you have a sound card added on your motherboard, i suggest you uninstall the drivers, take off the sound card, attach it again and install the drivers.

If you connect your speakers through the motherboard itself, uninstall drivers and install them by searching C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers

Hope it helps!!!
