The volume in your system and your television is separate. Mute your television, and rely only on your system.

    Right click on the speaker icon next to the clock on your screen. Click "open volume controls", and make sure all of the levels are where you need them to be. You can also access your built in graphic equalizer in the control panel, and make sure your sound is equalized properly.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 i have checked both fuses still no power to control box


Stupid question: does the sound still work? it could be the LED just died after continual use (rare, since they last a long time, but not uncommon).
If not... it could be the controlling circuit board died. In which case, unless you have electronics repair experience, it would be probably more worthwhile to just replace the speakers, as pricey a model as it is.

Both tweeters on one of my Bose 301V speakers have stopped working. Is it possible that they failed together or is it likely to be a crossover problem?


Since there is no single crossover for two speakers it is likely both speakers experienced the same audio trauma and blew together. Something like microphone feedback will take thenm out in a literal heartbeat.

The 301's sometimes have an element in series with the tweeters that looks like a little light bulb (or it could be a fuse, too) and it is designed to blow before the tweeters die. They're easy to find if you remove the woofer to get some maneuvering space inside. If they'rethere and blown (visible) you can either wire aroundthem and be careful in the future or get some more.

Do a web search for "tweeter protection fuse".

If the tweeters did take the hit get on eBay and find some more, plus think about installing protectors if you can't avoid excessive distortion or power going to them.

Regarding pwoer vs distortion, the latter will kill tweeters in a blink so don't think a modest amp is safer than a powerful one. The modest amp will distort sooner.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 (subwoofer) with no power out. LED off. Fuse ok.


first fuse as standard is in the plug to the power adapter. The second fuse is located at the back of the box where the power lead goes into. It is covered so look closely you just need something flat to open it. I have the S750 and that is what im basing this on but if the s700 is the same then you will find this helpful. Sorry did not notice this before.
Hope this helps.

Subwoofer problem


Hi there,

The distortion you are experiencing could be due to a few things,

Drivers for the device,ie the latest updates applied recently,
This may affect the performance of the units functionality.

The cables not being connected properly,poor signals and connections,

The source from where you original sound signals came from,
ie,over recorded source,too loud for the system speakers to reproduce the correct tones,
this is dangerous to speakers and the listerners hearing comfort too,

The simplist way to check your speakers are ok is to check them on another system with a similar sound device,or plug a set of head phones into you creative 4.1 output on a low volume,
is there a signal output to your head phones???

The most comon form of distortion is the equaliser setting on the original source output,turn it down to help eliminate the frequency your looking for and the adjust EQ to suit your comfort zone.

Apart from this will be unplug each zone and test individually,
should be a quick and painless solution,

Microphone feedback can damage speakers too,,,,,,

If the distortion remains try different speakers on the output.


Hope this helps , MISTERDJ

Suddenly my speaker volume is low and scratchy


Congrats, you yourself is a good troubleshooter. Just pinpointed your problem. What you just diagnoist can be easilly checked just by taking other good known speaker. If that works your speaker is short check for audio output wires. If not your card needs replacement. If need further clarifications just comment.

Sub distortion


The first thing you can check is the actual movement of the sub you think is broken. Is it stiff, hard to move, or rough. Any of those things could indicate a problem with the voice coil. The next step will require a voltmeter to read the resistance of the sub in question. First check the good sub and see if it matches the other. I'm thinking it probably won't again indicating a problem with a voice coil. If everything checks out fine you can look for obstructions in the sub box that would impede the subs movement. Or even if the enclosure is a lot smaller on that side it could cause problems. Still nothing? Swap the speaker leads (left to right) at the amp, did the distortion change to the other sub? If that happens - start checking RCA cables, head units, and amplifiers. Happy hunting!

Creative S750,all speakers distorted


Your problem sounds like it is the high voltage power supply not working. I would start by checking the IRF740 MOSFETs on the power supply board. Below I have pasted a link to a forum thread about fixing the Gigaworks S750 systems. There is a lot of information there about the problem you are experiencing as well as complete diagrams of the power supply and good pictures.

Control pod


Double check the connections, if the connection for the control pod is good then something is wrong inside. I would say most likely thing would be a problem on the power supply inside the subwoofer box.

Can I use my s750 speakers connect through A receiver?


I would actually suggest connecting the speakers up like that because the preamp that is used in the S750 is not very good even though the actual amps are good. I would also recommend using a different sub since it is very difficult to bypass the amp for the sub. Using a different amp could also provide more volume you would just have to make sure that you don't blow the speakers. I have a set of S750's but I have not been able to find anything to tell me the exact power handling that the speakers are capable of but I believe that they can handle a lot more than what the internal amplifier is putting out.
