Desktop Theater 5.1, DTT 2500 -- Faulty to No Outputs

December 4, 2007

Cambridge SoundWorks, Inc.
Newton, MA

Re: Model No. Desktop Theater 5.1, DTT 2500 Digital, Five Satellite/Subwoofer Speaker System, with Dolby Digital Processor

Serial No. SW352000471004205

Dear Sirs or Madam,

Please advise me of a reliable service facility to repair my DeskTop Theater 5.1 DTT 2500 Digital Decoder Amplifier. .

When the decoder amplifier's "master" control is adjusted , it frequently operates faulty—the signal’s volume level increases or decreases—as the signal alternates between dim and bright or disappears entirely.

Often, the signal is barely audible and may be absent from all channel (s). I desperately rely upon the system as a screen reader for processing materials.

Can you help me please? I hope to hear from you very soon.

You defenetely need to RMS your device to support on the place you buy, or company that made the decoder.
it is inside motherboard problem, and it is not so easy to pin point the problem here. but, yes, you has may be a bad modulator inside for the right signal to keep in right volume.
get it to repair shop.

Control module

The connections on the control module all depends on what outputs are available on the receiver or whatever audio component you have.
Probably the most straight forward hook up is to connect the receiver's speaker (R &L) outputs to the speaker Inputs of the module, however you may have potential outputs on your receiver that could used. What I suggest is for you to provide the information on the receiver with make and exact model number so the receiver outputs can be matched to the model.

The link is for a system module manual, and it describes all the possible hook ups based on the outputs of the receiver. If you can provide the additional information on the receiver, I will try to asssit you further.

Tower speaker subwoofer is popping

Why not just order a new woofer, unscrew the old one detach the terminals and replace with new? Then make sure your amplifier doesnt feed it any distortion to make it blow again.

I have used the sound test to check my CS 5.1 system. When I test the subwoofers, there is no sound. I have played CDs with deep bass, no sound is emitted from the subwoofers. I have T-500...

One step at a time. Get the subwoofer to work, THEN play music through it.

You don't describe the electronics, IF you have a sub defined, whatever other steps it probably needs to pass LFE to the sub.
