Question about Mordaunt Short 502THX Main / Stereo Speaker

Only tinny sound coming from the speaker MS904

I have a pair of MS904 Floor standing speakers. One of the speakers is only emitting a tinny sound. I swopped speakers over and problem followed it. Also put another set of speakers in their place and all worked fine SO NOT THE AMP. Also put speakers onto another amp and same problem. Can anyone advise me why this may have occurred. One minute speakers was fine and the next it wasn't. I am assuming that I will have to contact Mordaunt Short and return for warranty/repair

The "tiny sound" may be a blown woofer you are only getting sound from your high section.

I have a pair of KLH AV5001 speakers and I have them hooked up, there is sound but it's distorted and there's zero base, an instruction manual or any advice would be great, thank you.

Without knowing what they're hooked up too.. SOUNDS like your uder powering them, OR over powering them. Look at the back of the speakers the wattage is what your looking for, look at your amp, example: 1000w speaker running on 50w amp = not good.

I have a pair of Paradigm Monitor 3 V.2 High Def speakers for my front L&R home theater system. On speaker sounds very tinny with no bottom end. On inspection neither the main or tweeter loo

A few questions to help me help you: (1) Does the woofer cone move freely when you use your hands to move it (or do you feel friction)? (2) have you tried swapping the left speaker for the right to rule out the receiver as a cause?

42.1i passenger side rear has power but sound is very quiet and tinny. all 3 other speakers work fine.

It sounds like the woofer part of the speaker is bad, while the tweeter is still good. You are going to have to replace the speaker. Speakers are generally sold in pairs, so it would be best to replace both rear speakers at the same time.

I need the wiring diagram of the stereo cassette radio am/fm, please help my radio is dead (positive and speakers terminals)

You're going to need a multimeter/voltmeter and a 9v battery to do this. It's easiest to first find your constant and switched/ignition wires.

For the constant, you can get ground from any piece of metal inside the dash, and begin touching all the wires, one at a time until you get a voltage. The meter should show 12v or just under. This is your constant. Do the same for the ignition/switched, but this time with the ignition on. Check the remaining wires until you get one at 12v or just under. To check now turn off ignition and the voltage should go away.

For the speakers, it's a little more guessing, but you can check them with a 9v battery. Start with any of the remaining wires and hold it on the positive terminal of your 9v battery. Now go through the remaining wires and touch them, one at a time, to the negative terminal. You should hear a pop from the speaker when you come across the pair. Note the colors and the speaker where it came from. Now move on to another wire and repeat.

You may come across a wire that will not pop when paired with any of the other wires. This could be your ground. Put it a side until you've figured out all the speaker wires. Now go back to the possible ground and use your multimeter to see if you get 12v with your constant wire on positive and the negative wire on the possible ground. If it does it's your ground. If not, it could be something like a dimmer, power antenna or remote line that isn't necessary in replacing a stereo.

The downfall of doing this is that it doesn't tell you polarity. After you finishing connecting the radio to the in-dash wiring turn it on. Listen to the sound carefully. If it sounds tinny one or more of the speakers polarity are incorrect. Try to determine which speaker/s sound tinny and reverse there wiring. Check again and hopefully everything's sounding good.

I hope this is helpful.

Hello! I purchased a pair of M- Audio Av 30 speakers years ago and I've noticed that at times they emit an annoying buzzing sound from the subwoofer parts of each speaker. I normally dont notice it because...

LOL. This is a common, easily solveable problem. Remove your cellphone or anything that emits radiation of any sort from the general area. Don't believe me? send a text message while sitting net to your speakers. It does this even if you arent sending a message because your phone sends intermittent signals to the cell tower. the radiation being emitted from the phone does weird things with the magnets inside the speakers.

Need more volume on computer speakers

Buy yourself some stand alone speakers, a base & two side speakers, they cheap these days, base speaker has buit in amplifier & plugs into mains, or get surround sound 5speakers & a base, again mains powered, loud enough to annoy neighbours on full. Built in monitor speakers are renowned feeble tinny sounds. Right click speaker icon, bottom right, on your desktop toolbar, open volume control, ensure volume sliders set to max.

A6700y HP PC sound is tinny echo. I've adjusted all settings, changed speakers, won't correct problem.

Maybe your microphone is on and giving feedack of what it hears. Try disconnecting it and let us know what it did. Also once a pair of headphones ( believe or not ) cted like weak microphones. When you tapped them, big speakers made the sound. There was a dual plug for both large speakers and headphones to be connected to the green sound out. Anyway, tell us what it did after you disconnected the mic.

Record player sounds scratchy and tinny

Playing records is a contact sport.

Since the needle touches the record -- as opposed to a laser reading a CD -- any bit of dust or mold translates to annoying pops and hisses.

Record cleaners get down into the record grooves to extract dust and particles.

Or you may need a new needle.

Sound not coming through speakers correctly

Check that the speaker setting on the receiver is set to large not small. (if you have 6inch or larger woofers)

If you have only small speakers you will need a subwoofer.
