One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.

The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).

Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.

Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.

Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.

Getting very low volumn only and lots of crackling if turned up


As long as it is only the speaker that is playing up and not the amp. Then more that likely it will be something on the crossover circuit that is the problem. If you look at that and see semi-conductors (transistors, IC, etc) on it. Then one or more of them could be the problem.

Tannoy reveal speakers have lost treble


What you need to do is connect a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker(s) terminals for a split second. Put your ear to the tweeter at the same time (you might someone to help you do this). If the tweeter "pops" it works, if not you might have blown them. The best way would (to be certain) is to remove the tweeter from the crossover inside the unit.
Tweeters are the first thing to go when the speaker has been connected to an amp that is wrong for them or they have been run at high volume.

Alesis M1 Active 620 studio monitor cutting out


I see from the manual there are several controls on the speaker that could affect the sound in the way you describe (gain, hi- and mid-boost, acoustic space). Why don't you compare the actions of each control with the working speaker as the standard and a test tone or FM noise as the source? It might help you to identify a specific internal function that has changed. After that, someone's going to have to crack it open and do surgery.

You might also try using the opposite input (TRS vs XLR) than the one you're using. It might reveal something.

Cerwin Vega ve-28s subwoofer and new Cervin Vega 2-way satellites


I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.
