Have an LG "out of the box" home theater system. Front left speaker fell about 3 feet onto hardwood floor. Speaker still works, but now has lots of static. Can this be fixed? If so, how difficult and expensive? Is it worth fixing, or should I be shopping for a new set? The system is only 1 year old.

By Analysing Your Speaker Problem it deffinately by broken speaker cones.Generally We observed that when speaker gets external shock or fell down from height speaker cones brokes, and it gives somewhat static sounds and also originality of sound also losted.So you can replace u r cones or speaker but it is quite expensive and but not originates Original Sound but somewhat satisfied. So purchase new one is better choice.

1. Read the installation guidline/connection diagram given with the product.
2. u will get 5 speakers and a subwoofer. speakers are front left & right, rear left & right and center speaker.
3. install the front spearkers both side of the TV at ur ear level.
4. install the centre speaker at the centre above or below the TV at ur ear level.
5. install both the rear speaker at the back side wall corners (min 1.5 feet from ur sitting position) at a hight of 5 feet. face the speakers towards ur sitting position.
6. keep the sub woofer at the right side corner of the room.
7. note that the room should be a closed one with less air ventilession & use a carpet on the floor to get clear sound.
8. use co-excial or optical fibre cable to connect ur home theater system to ur TV, DVD player or audio device.
Now u can enjoy ur home theater.
When people install their own home theater systems they typically use these small stick-type stands for the rear speakers. This leaves one (or all) rear speaker blasting right into your ear, which is not how the rear speakers should be.
Rear speakers should be mounted two to three feet above ear level or higher, get those speakers off of the stands and onto the walls. The reason for this is that they were intended to add a background effect, they are not meant to distract your from the picture.
If your room (or significant other) does not allow speakers to be mounted up, then move your rears back a bit and aim them towards each other, this will maximize their effect and not distract you from the front while you enjoy your movie.
Did you try connecting another speaker to the center channel and confirm if the Amplifier is OK or not. Because of the fall the center channel speakers itself could have been damaged and thus not giving any sound. You can take the left or right speaker and test if the amp is OK in case you do not have any other speaker.
Place the front left and right speakers on each side of the TV with the speaker labeled "Center" either above or below the TV screen. Set the rear speakers behind the seating area at head level and place the subwoofer on the floor a few inches away from the wall, which can absorb bass sounds if the sub is pressed against it.
Connect the plug on the end of each speaker to the jack labeled for that speaker on the back of the Durabrand receiver. The cables are permanently attached to the speakers, so each may need to be moved closer to the receiver. For example, the left front speaker connects to the jack on the receiver labeled "LF."
Plug the video cable from the Video OUT jack on the back of the receiver to a Video Input jack on the back of the TV.
Plug in the Durabrand receiver and TV to the electricity and switch on both components.
Press the "Input" button on the TVremote several times until the Durabrand signal displays on the screen.
1. Connect the front left,
front right, center, and sub woofer speakers to the back of the home theater
the home theater system off, insert the TX card into the TX Card connection
(WIRELESS) on the back of the home theater. Important:
Make sure to insert the TX card with the slanted portion of the card facing
3. Connect the
rear left and the rear right speakers to the back of the SWA-3000.
4. Plug the power cord
of the SWA-3000 into an electrical wall outlet, and then switch the power
switch on the back of the SWA-3000 to [ON]
you might want to switch the speakers that youre using. e.g front left put it to front right and vice versa to isolate if the speaker has the issue or the amplifier terminal. if the left speaker works on the other terminal then its a terminal issue.
Sorry sp106s, you have to take that to bose service center. Its a complicated problem. Something is wrong in the amplifier section inside your sub box. Only authorize servicemen can open it, not any tech'n can.
You've probably tried this, but when you do the channel test you can turn the volume up or down on whichever speaker is currently being tested (the static). Maybe your speakers have been adjusted somehow.
