Distorted sound


Never used them, but distorted outputs indicates you are over-driving them, connected them to 'speaker out' rather than 'headphone out', Or you have already blown the drivers. Connect to a different sound source and see how they work then. You likely will not get a loud boom from any headset.

Internal Speaker not working properly suddenly. Hearing Ruptures along the voice.


If you have been using your computer with the audio on full you will probably have blown the speaker cones. An easy fix. Add some external speakers.

I turn on my subwoofer and the volume is turned down and it makes a loud buzzing sound, and its not even hooked up to the amp, just pluged in. Thank you, Joel Arntsen


You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little! Please rate my solution!

I was doing a party iconnect the mic to mixer, they star to talk paralell with music and blow the upper part of speakers, they sound but not any treble


Hi,
What happened is that the tweeter is blown. or a fuse in the speaker that goes to the tweeter has blown. Hopefully that is it.
There are several causes. Here is the theory so you understand how to match an amplifier to a speaker system.
Tweeters have a much lower capacity for amplifier power then woofers do. All professional speakers as well as home speakers reflect this.
You may ask exactly what blew the tweeter?
Usually what destroys the tweeter is not amplifier power but distortion. If someone is overloading the microphone, or the microphone is not trimmed to the mixer. You get distortion. This distortion is what caused the tweeter to blow. The signal must be clean. If you put too much power in, it may survive OK but if you put distortion in, it will more likely blow.
It is no shame for this to happen. I have had it happen to me when mixing a live show. You just have to watch what is happening and not turn things up too loud so the mixer or the amplifier distorts.
Also when doing sound work, the ears of an engineer naturally lower the perception of loudness. Engineers often keep turning up the equipment up more and more during a performance because they have lost the perception of loudness that was there when they started. That is also the reason that many professional studio musicians and drummers loose much of their hearing at an early age.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

Turn on radio on half and get in the back seat and listen for distortion and if that dont work turn off the key unplug one speaker at a timeuntil you find it the wire are in the trunck connected to the speaker.Listen then not exceeding the power on the speaker and you wont need to turn it up that loud you will notice whats blown quickly.

It seems to distort on anything loud over 40Hz like the speaker is blown but the speaker sounds good on another amp.


Either your amp is too powerful for that speaker or you just need to simply turn the gain down.

Is there anyway to fix a blown Bose Speaker (201)?


The only 2 solutions are: 1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful). Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.

Playback distortion


When recording turn down your speakers or wear headphones. What your hearing is the feedback from the speakers.
Hope this helps. Bud
