This usually means that the speaker is blown. Try running through a different setup and see if it fixes the problem. Hope this helps

Crackling speaker as soon as i switch on my digital piano


It looks like the Korg c-15s has a internally mounted speaker and so I will assume that the speaker and amplifier are part of the piano base. It sounds like either the speaker is blown (crackling sounds heard as deformed voice coil scrapes the magnet structure) or the audio amplifier is distorting the audio.

Connect the piano's output to an external amplifier and speaker to properly identify problem.

Crackling is usally one or two things my guess would be bad grounding of the amp or bad connection with the jacks or plug it self try to make it crackle on purpose by jiggling the jacks see if it has any effect on the crackling try to narrow your possibilitys

Crackling sound in speaker


These speakers have a history of being blown if played too loud. Apparently the higher quality CX version are reliable. If the lows are what is crackling, the voice coils are probably cooked causing it to drag the pole pieces.

Left speaker making a crackling sort of vibration-sound especially on certain tones. Is the speaker shot?


Hi, I think the speaker is getting damaged. When you strike hard keys, it makes crack sound i guess.
If you can open the keyboard and test the speaker by using a battery and run a wire to the positive and negative spot of the speaker. If you hear a clear sound after testing the speakers, that means the speakers are working properly,but if it does not sound clear enough,that means the speakers are not working well...

When a speaker does not sound good enough, it's usually a sound IC problem that will need to be replaced.

Hope that helped.

Feel free to pass your comment.

try hooking headphones to the output and see if the crackling is still there.

then, try it with the speakers, at a lower computer voume level and higher speaker volume level. perhaps the headphone output is too loud and distorting in the speaker inputs.

bit late. I have had the same problem. I replaced the optical module which solved the problem for me. The optical module is located above the keyboard and is used for scanning the keyboard.

Hi

The problem is with the amplifier itself. Crackling is usually capacitor related and you will need to have the amp checked over to properly identify the cause.

Some amps are also prone to pick up static from other electrical items which can also cause these problems. I had a crackling issue with an old Crate amp of mine which turned out it was due to being too near a computer/monitor so it is worth eliminating these things as a possible cause before having the amp checked.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier


Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.
