Makes large thumping/chirping noise when turned on. Its not even connected to the receiver

Since you have said the speakers make this sound when "turned on", I'm going to assume there's some form of power amplifier attached (internal, external or otherwise). Based on the minimal information provided here, this simply sounds like the normal reaction of a speaker when the amplifier is turned on. In short, an audio speaker is a type of "transducer" and when power is applied (thru some form of amplifier), the cone reacts to the power surge and causes a thump, pop or other noise. Turn on your TV for example and you'll usually hear a small pop from the speakers...and a larger/more powerful amplifier is likely to make a louder noise. Without further information, in most cases this is quite normal.

Assuming there is an external power amplifier, my advice would be to turn the volume on the amp (regardless of whether there's a receiver connected) to 0 before turning the power on. If it still makes such a noise, it's possible the volume control of the amp may require cleaning.

Good Luck!

How do I get speaker to work with Samsung S5 with good sound quality

Be sure JBL is charged, press the power button on JBL, press the Bluetooth button on JBL. Turn on your phones bluetooth,make it visible to all devices, make it search for aplliances. When it finds JBL - pair it (you may have to make up a pairin number). The "sun" button controls different sound qualities. And turn the volume up! You should download the JBL MUSIC FLOW APP from the APP STORE to make the most of it.

I have a 200w Paradigm subwoofer that recently started a nasty feed back that sounds like an automatic machine gun. Is it a connetion problem or a something else

Do you have a habbit of turning your woofer up louder than listening to "clean" music? As you turn up the volume almost to the maximum, you should notice when the "clean" sounding music turns to "not clean" sounding music. Also known as "distortion". That "distortion" is actually your amplifiers inability to play louder than that point. When you turn up the volume past the point when the music sounds like it is "unclean" sounding music, your amplifier is pushing instructions to your woofer, but the woofer can't handle all the extra instructions and is damaging your woofer. And hense, over time, you can damage your woofer beyond repair.

If you can't find a loose connection, there are only 2 other possibilities. You wore out your amp. Or, more likely, you wore out your woofer. Or......Please, no......not that.......possibly both. Amps can be sent to the manufaturer for repair, but check craigslist before you spend on repair. I would focus on the woofer possibly being the worn piece. A high end audio shop will gladly take $15-30 from you to test your woofer and amp for you.Just tell them what you hear. They can also check all your connections for you.

Good luck.

My subwoofer keeps making a clunking noise...How do I correct this problem?

The clunking noise could be the voice coil maxing out hitting its stop or a warped voice coil. How much power is going to the subwoofer. If it only happens when the high volume setting it and not at medium volume the subwoofer may not be able to handle the power. With your hand gently push the speaker cone back and release the cone so it can return to its rest state several times. Do you hear a scratching sound or feel any resistance? If you do your voice coil is damaged if not from physical means it could be from the voice coil overheating. If it is OK shake and rap on the subwoofer box and try to identify any loose parts which could be making noise.

Quad 11L distorts sound temporarily at the beginning of a session

Swap the speaker that makes the noise with one of the others. If it acts up on the new channel you know that it's got a fault on it. However if the noise appears on the new speaker the fault is in the amp (perhaps an overheating transitor).
Looking at the picture on fixya of the speakers, it seems unlikely that the speaker units would cause that fault, but the crossover could in it.

I have an infinity sw12 that is for some reason making a high pitched noise and some cracking noises as well. It does seem to work otherwise. I get the same noise when the cable to the stereo is unplugged....

It could be an internal "cold solder joint" however, if your lucky, it may just be dust buildup on the control pods and switches. Radio Shack sells "Tuner Wash" which will clean potentiometers (volume controls) and other electrical contact points. It's an inexpensive "try". Pull the volume and crossover knobs and lightly spray down with the wash. Let it set 10-15 seconds then move the control pod back and forth. Turn it back on and see if it's better. Hope this helps
