Question about JBL Creature 2.1 Computer Speakers
I have just plugged in my bass/subwoofer. I have configured my computer to 5.1 surround minus centre rear right and rear left. I can make the bass/subwoofer make noise when i click test, but cannot make it do anything playing any type of music on any programs?
pretty sure drivers are up to date and also sound card vista compatible
I apologize if this question sounds offensive, but did you plug the power adapter in to an electrical outlet? When the power switch is on, do you get any LEDs or an audible thump or hiss from the subwoofer?

If you dare to open up the case, squirt some contact cleaner into the internals of the variable resistor. If none of this makes sense, youre better off taking it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: Crackling Sound From Subwoofer
Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection. Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.
If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out. See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...
I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).
This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.
Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)

A wire inside the cable has probably come loose, unless you (or a friend) have decent soldering skills to just replace the wire form the audio controller (most likely spot to have problems) to the PC they are probably just trash.
