Question about Logitech X-230 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Noise coming from speaker with controls

Here's my problem. I've had these speakers for years and have not had a problem with them till recently. The speakers were not in use for about 1 month and while they were not being used they were turned off. I attempted using the speakers last night when I discovered a very loud/annoying sound coming from the right speaker only (the speaker with the controls). The sound almost sounds like the waves of the ocean but it's very loud. Any suggestions on getting this noise/sound to dissolve?

    thanks,



    to clarify, the noise sounds like static and it persists whether the speakers are plugged into the computer or not. In other words, when I turn the speakers on, there's a static noise coming from the right speaker and even when I plug the speakers into the computer; the noise doesn't go away.



    what should i do? i've tried unhooking the speakers from the subwoofer, checking the wiring but have not tried cleaning the speakers. i'll try that.



    what if cleaning the speakers don't help?

    try to unplug the speakers from your computer , see if the noise still appears, if still persist you have to look at it whats going on inside it, maybe something is in there which causes it to produce noise, maybe on power supply or the amp inside, a multimeter will do the job detecting where the trouble might be., hope this help, thanks for using fixya!

Buzzing noise z4 logitech speakers


Hi Haley,
I also enjoy good Music and excellent sound from my speakers that i have and know what you going through. There is two problems that i see here. One is that your bass speakers is dying on you from the excess bass that has been exerted throught it or have you tried lowering the adjusting bass from the contol panel?
Try adjusting the bass and if that doesnt work aleast you've identified your problem.
Thanks Haley for using Fixya.Good Luck.

verify if the computer has a digital output that matches your speakers (5.1 or 7.1). Also, verify that the cable leading from the PC to the main speaker box is OK. Also, the speakers may come with an installation CD, so you'll need to install the accompanying control application.

No Right Front Speaker Output


Swap speakers over...check the balance isn't fully to the other channel...swap left/right phono cables over (if thats how your using it) other than that i would say is broke.
Easy way to check speaker cable/speaker... touch a small battery (like used in a remote) across speaker wires, you will hear and see the speaker cone move.

Speaker static noise


The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).

Post your results here so we can further assist you.

Loud and strange noises


The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.
