Question about Altec Lansing ACS 48 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

VOLUME CONTROL NON FUNCTIONAL

THE VOLUME CONTROL IN THE SUBWOOFER AND THE SPEAKER DO NOT WORK (EITHER WAY).

VOLUME OF THE SPEAKER AND SUB FIXED AT A LOW LEVEL

HOWEVER, VOLUME VARIES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE VOLUME CONTROL IN THE LAPTOP AND MEDIA PLAYER

PROBLEM STARTED WITH LOSS OF POWER IN THE SPEAKER SYSTEM, BUT WHEN THE POWER WAS RESTORED BY CONNECTING TO A DIFFERENT POWER OUTLET, THE VOLUME CONTROL WILL NOT FUNCTION,

ANY SUGGESTIONS.

    I have a pair of 2.1 altec lansing and it is the exactly, exact same problem. It first started by lowering down the volume and once I unplugged them from power outlet they stoped working the volume control dosn't work and even can't turn it on or off using those combinations of volume controls... I tried it in another power outlet and it started working but no volume control and power on/off controll...

    I currently have my nano connected to that and have a fairly small room and it gives enuf sound so that i could listen within the room like some background music going on.

    I just kept the speakers on continiously for 15days and the output increased by 7% so for example if it was 10% its now 17%.

    I am still searching some solution to fix it but as loong as it gives out some sound i will not giveup on it. Kindly share your ideas here...


    Thank you
    will keep you posted

I have a velodyne f-1200r how do I hook up to other speakers


The simplest way is to connect both the left and right channel speaker wires from your amp or receiver into the speaker wire connections on the back of the sub labeled "From Amplifier"

Then connect speaker wires from the adjacent terminals labeled "To Speakers"

What you are essentially doing now is using the internal crossover of the subwoofer where you determine at what frequency the sub begins to blend with the other speakers.

This is done with the Crossover knob just above the speaker wire connections.

Whatever you have this set to, the main volume will now raise and lower the volume of the sub and main speaker together but you can still make the sub louder or softer as compared to the main speakers by using the subs volume control.

Defeat all tone controls on your preamp or receiver and use only the crossover knob and sub volume until you achieve a seamless blend where you cannot tell where the sub is and it is an extension of the speakers from where you will be sitting.

TIP:
DO not evaluate from the sub itself because the room shape and acoustics are drastically different everywhere ESPECIALLY when you are dealing with bass frequencies.

Can I assume you know how to set this?

I just pick up a used LW 10 Powered sub and 2 channel sherwood receiver.What is the preffered method of hook up up the sub with out a pre sub out?


"Sherwood Receiver" doesn't really tell us much about that end of the scenario.

Look at this picture of the sub amp.

http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/CERWIN-VEGA-LW-10-SUBWOOFER-AMPLIFIER-Speaker-Blade-Amp-/350444290153

You COULD run the Main speaker output to the large Red/Black speaker inputs, then some more wires Out from the other Red/Black connectors to your Main Speakers. That way your amp volume control will affect both equally.

Tweak the sub volume, crossover and phase to match it up to your mains.

I'm not sure how to hook up a powered sub woofer to my rx4109 reciever


It doesn't have a specific low-frequency or subwoofer output.

Depending on your unnamed subwoofer we may be able to work something out. Any sub should be able to work with a full-range Line Level feed.

If you use a Line Level input you won't have volume control of the sub through the receiver.

That would be available at either Tape Out or Aux Out. Just run an RCA pair (or combined to one male out if that's what the sub amp requires).

Whichever one you use, you won't be able to activate that function for listening as it would remove the input to the sub amp.

If your sub accepts speaker level High Level inputs you could drive it with speaker outputs and yoi WOULD have some volume control, assuming the sub had a way to match its initial volume to your other speakers.

Of course, the manual for your sub might explain some of this, too.

My subs keeps bumping in a rythme like pattern even with the volume turned all the way down


whatever signal output from your head unit to your sub amp, is in "pre" mode, or not in "sub" mode" which means the volume control on the head unit will not affect the subwoofer volume.

Subwoofer outputs not functioning


Have a good look at your set up in regards to volume output to each channels .
you may have only one channel working due to volume turn down or a faulty connection from the console head unit .
After going through all these , i would suggest to get your sub amp checked as you may have a faulty amp .

Sub seems to not get louder with volume increase. It seems to be overpowering at low volume or boomy then as you increase volume the front main speakers seem to take over.


Try adjusting the frequency cut off of the sub and also play with the gain control on the sub. Turn your system up to where your front speakers are sounding as you like. Then try adjusting the sub to match the fronts so you have a good balance and blend.

Adjusting the subwoofer volume seperately from speaker volume


You can't exactly set volume but definitely turn down the bass which lowers the sub's output. Thats all we can do i think.
