I've managed to fix the amp in the ADA995 when I blew the rear channel amp. There is a design fault with the voltage regulator that causes it to run very hot, which frys the plastic housing glued near it, which corrodes the circuit board trace.

Getting the sub/amp apart is a *****. But doable. You need to not only remove the screws in the back under the flat grills, but ALSO 3 screws behind the top speaker that also hold the amp in place. And getting the power supply out is another rather difficult procedure, which is needed if you want to run the amp on the bench to troubleshoot.

The amp chips are available, though no NTE equivalent, and replaceable.

I had the same problem. One day I heard two pops and the speaker, including the power light, were dead. Neither Dell nor Altec Lansing support them. They're throw-aways, unless you know a genius electronics technician.

Why does it emit a loud whistle when turned on?

I got rid of my Altec Lansing because I got white noise when the unit was turned OFF. They are not a good make. You can try moving any wires or magnetic influence away from them. I now own Bowers and Wilkins MM1 speakers which are amazing.

The transformer of my sub-woofer is burnt. When i take it to the repair shop, they say that the transformer is not available. I badly need to fix the speaker as i love them very much and the new ones are...

Sub woofers have small amplifiers , not transformers. The amplifier is removable and replaceable. The The overall size and the output wattage are the spec's you need . The output wattage is on the label which is attached somewhere on the speaker. You do NOT need to replace the amp with the Altec Lansing brand. Have you contacted Altec Lansing to purchase a replacement Amp? That's where I would start. If they cannot help you I would Google replacement amp sub-woofer, Altec Lansing model MX5021.
good luck

How can I hook these speakers to a laptop pc? I have a dell inspiron laptop with an output for the earplugs. I was wondering if the ADA995 could be attached to a mocked-up plug for this output. Seems these...

External speakers can be connected to the earphone jack,BUT remember the computer output is only designed to power earphones not big speakers. The speakers have to have an amp built in, like some desktop speakers. Also if you use an adapter to connect the speakers, you MUST make sure the grounds and output wires are matched correctly or you will fry the computers audio board or worse.

Hooking 5.1 computer speakers to a Samsung Plasma

Computer speakers are powered, they have their own amps inside the speaker cabinet.

To get these to work on a TV you need to plug them into a headphone out jack.

The external speaker terminals produce too hot a signal for powered computer speakers. The amp in the speakers may have already been damaged.
