HI! Red14 happy holidays
Well, may be a lot things, from bad cable, welding inside , or bad resistor is burn. but check the cable, and if you can open the panel on inside speakers, try to figure out if the cable is not loose, or bad.

I have the JBL speakers which are really decent but i want them to be as loud as possible! if i plugged in my logitech speakers into one of the inputs that i would normally put one of my little speakers in...

It should be OK BUT if the JBL and the Logitech are plugged into different mains outlets you could get a hum from one or both sets of speakers. This hum is caused by an earth loop when the speakers are connect to different mains outlets.
The fix.
Connect a power board to a mains outlet and then plug the mains connections from both set of speakers and computer to this power board.

I have JBL encounter speakers and i want use them with my Mac, when i plug nothing comes out (sound)

Wanted to clarify , if the you plug in a headphone are you are able to get the sound from them . If yes than , you might need to check the connection on the speakers. If the headphones are also not working through the audio jack . You would have to check the following

1. Check if there is any external damage to the audio jacks both on the MAC and the JBL connector
2. Check if the sound properties on the MAC are configured correctly
3. Check if the sound card drivers are installed correctly.

Thanks for using fixya

I have jbl encounter speaker, my left speaker is very weak compared to the right channel. I can hardly hear the sound out of the left one.

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps you

I have a set of JBL Creature Speakers that I take good care of. However, one day, I knocked one of the satellite speakers off my coffee table, and subsequently that speaker only plays very faintly,...

Without seeing it it is hard to tell, but it could be that the speaker cone is out of the magnet hole, and is missaligned, in other words the voice coil could be sitting on top of the magnet instead of in the magnet hole... If you DELICATELY push on the speaker cone does it move in and out???

Have a JBL Encounter 2.1 Multi Media Speaker System need to find a power lead and speaker jack for it im resident in uk and need voltage requirements regards

you shouldnt have to worry about a speaker jack for it. it should work anywhere and a simple usa to uk power adapter will work for you it just changes the plug type and up or downs the voltage (i cant recall if uk is higher or lower then the u.s)

JBL Creature Speakers have very low volume

use another device like your i pod to make your jbl sounds louder and then plugged it to your pc without turning it off. after plugging try to test it if works.

I couldnt adjust the volume with the JBL encounter speakers when i plug it in my laptop, but when i plug it in my iPod, i works perfectly... Can anyone help?

If you are using windows then go to
  • control panel
  • open-> sound and audio devices
  • a window will open showing your sound configuration
  • towards the bottom of that window, you would find speaker volume-click it
  • on the next window, click the button saying restore deafults
Now check the sound.
Hope, this helps.

Otherwise tell me.

Control Pod for Companion 5 volume control non-functional

I had exact same problem today. I moved my speakers from one room to the next. When I plugged everything back, the mute/unmute worked but the volume control no longer worked.

I got it working now!! I powered down my computer and then unplugged the power to the speaker system. Then plugged in the power to the speaker system again. Powered on computer and all is good again!!

Hope this helps/

Won't turn on - lights appear for a second then nothing

Probably a poor power connection either where the AC pack goes in to the wall (probably powerbar!) or where the plug from the power pack goes into the unit. Wiggle the various connectors to see which one solves the problem. As a last resort you may have a faulty power pack (try ask a dealer or friend to test your system on their power pack).
