Hi one of my alesis m1 520 speakers has a fault . it powers up ok but theres hardly any sound coming out . you can hear it but its very low

Try reversing cables between speakers just to make sure it's not cable or source. If it is a bad soaker, you'll need to contact Alesis for a local service center near you. Check w/ Guitar Center also, they have access to service.

I have a Onkyo TX-8222 receiver. Sound is ok for music but voices are very low. When two voices, one is very clear abd the other very low. What is the problem ?

You don't say what source(s) are affected. I'm guessing TV or Cable-TV is the problem because music with vocals has voices and you say it sounds ok. Your speakers have no clue whether a sound is a voice or music so that lets THEM out and your receiver doesn't know or care either.

In the modern multichannel world it's usually assumed your electronics are multichannel. This receiver is old-school stereo.

The Center channel is usually where voices are found but some systems (like yours) don't have a Center speaker so they have to be configured to share the Center duty with the front left and Right speakers.This isn't possible or even normally necessary in your case. WYSIWYG

The audio coming in from 'wherever' should be correctly mixed to 2-channels at the source or you'll probably be missing something. I'd look higher up the audio food chain for where the voices are being attentuated. If a cable box is involved I'd look at its audio settings regarding stereo mix-down

Wait, I just had an inspiring thought. Centered voices being mono in nature would partially cancel out if your two speakers were out of 'phase' with each other. Bass would also suffer. Make sure your two speakers are wired identically regarding the red and black (or plus and minus) conductors. If turning the Balance control fully to one side makes bass of voices sound louder you probably have a phase mismatch. Reverse the wiring on either speaker to match the other. There is no absolute right or wrong for phasing as long as they're all the same.

Sound on the speaker is very low voices are barely audible. have tried all eq settings but sound remains low please help

Look through your receiver's DSP sound settings. When you locate the volume control for the center channel, adjust it to be in balance with the music and sound FX. Often, I just forget about the DSP and run the sound in stereo with subwoofer. Helps to minimize the different audio mixes between different TV STATIONS AND DVDs.

I have a samsung subwoofer sealed box for an entertainment center, one of the wires came loose inside the box, how do i fix it

You cant fix it without virtually destroying the cabinet,as most active samsungs are glued together,designed to be replaced rather than repaired,sadlyUnless its a wire on the speaker,about the only removable part.Even the amplifier is inacessible on later models,such as the ps-we450 making any fault unrepairable.

Surround sound

your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.  Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of  this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the 
media center. 
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 
3. Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers 
down to minimum volume. 
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing 
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1® 
system speakers.
