Hi Phineasj

It is possible the speaker is bad, and defective, time to change,or repair, or RMS, try carefully, open and see the cables, you also can welding the cable again the cables IF broke.
good luck

One speaker no sound

I just want to confirm that the solution on another page from francis 8 works perfectly ( ). We have two sets of Creatures in our offices, one had been shelved (by someone less persevering than me) due to this problem years ago and my set started this trouble a few days ago. Troubleshot everything, every cable, setting, combination, spare speakers etc - nothing worked. Opening the offending speaker and pulling back the metal weight behind the speaker cone was the solution for BOTH of our units.
Big smiles all around :-)
Note - When you've opened the plastic shell and loosened the speaker from its mounting, the the big round metal piece/magnet sits within the actual speaker 'cage', slightly behind the speaker cone. It's tight but movable and can be pulled all the way back as far as it can go inside it's housing, away from the speaker cone.
Not sure why it gets pulled forward, but it isn't fixed in position and so could clearly get bumped by dropping the speaker or a reasonable impact of some sort. Once bumped forward it would severely limit cone movement and therefore volume.

Logitech THX Z-2300 only one speaker works. theres something wrong with the input. both speakers work fine but the 1 of the inputs on the subwoofer stopped working, causing only one speaker 2 work

try tapping the speaker box in your palm while the speaker is connected. There might be a bad contact of the wires inside. I had to open up my speaker to find that out. i moved around the wires connected to the cone of the speaker and then started to hear music once i did that. it was the left speaker by the way.

My speakers stopped working. Cannot increase the volume, have to put ear very close to hear a faint sounds

I fixed a similar problem I was having. It requires a little work.

Take out the four screws from under the broken speaker. Carefully remove the cover, separating the speaker from the base. The two are wired together so don't pull them apart with force. Then remove the single screw, which is much larger the the previous four, and separate the speaker from the top cover.

If you chose you can remove the wires from the speaker, they just snap on, but its not required.

What I found is the speaker issue is not with the wire or the power, but the speaker it's self. On the back there is a big round metal piece. On my speaker that piece was pushed towards the front of the speaker. When I looked at the good speaker, that big piece was all the way back. So I simply pulled it back and presto, instant fix!

I hope this works for you.

Subs dont work

To test speakers.A. Unplug speaker wires.
B. connect a 9volt battery to each speaker,touching one wire to the negative and the other to the positive breifly. The speaker should extend outward or inward, simulating the pumping of the cone. Depending on the polarity of the DC voltage hooked to the battery.
That's why it is important to wire the speakers correctly. Pos to Pos Neg to Neg.
You should know if the speakers or wired in series or parallele.
Google speaker wiring. Very informative.

I played some high music and the left speaker stopped working but if i take of the grill and touch it, it work but when i take my volum up it stops again, z-230,

The speaker is usually a simple network consisting of a connection point and a crossover network and the speaker it self. all of thes components have connecting points. One of the three areas is having a problem. Check all these connections and see if the have developed a bad or cold solder joint. They also may have a broken connection. Usually a wire connector. You may be able to repair or replace it. If one the areas is damaged you may need to replace it.The components usually have part numbers on them. Use this part number in the search engines of the web to find a replacement part.If the expense is more than the speaker is worth, you may just want to replace the speaker. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
