Re: 5 computer speakers w/ subwoofer

1) Check the connections of your speaker wire at both the speaker and the PC. It's possible something might have come loose or is starting to become worn.

2) Try moving the speaker or your tower/cpu to another location, or if not, move any new accessories away from the speakers and wires. It is possible that you are getting interference from a new accessory or appliance (like printers or other electromagnetic devices).

3) Let me (us) know what the brand and model of speaker it is. Maybe there's more specific info we can provide.

Crackling static noice

Hi Roovejet.

The capacitor 104 is 0.1uf ceramic has no reading with analogue multimeter in any range of ohms scale.
if it read any of ohms value ,it is bad.
please check the large electrolytic capacitors too and loose connection for the board and.if you have volume controllers clean it with alcohol or contact cleaners.
if your device is older than 5 years it is time to change all the electrolytic capacitors.its sound like foolish but it brings new life and same quality when your buying time to the sound system.

I have been experiencing static noise/crackling from my front left and right speakers just recently. (I have a 5.1 dell system - the front center - attached to the monitor and rear speakers do not emit...

This seems like at cables have gone bad or either the connections in the speakers went bad. Its best to replace them unless you know how to disassemble and re-soder the connections.

Crackling noise from subwoofer????


i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

Acer aspire speakers

i had the same problem on my acer aspire 6935g.

its the internal subwoofer.

i have windows 7, so to turn it off i did this:

right click the speaker icon at the bottom right.
click 'sounds', then 'playback'.
double click 'realtek speakers'.
click 'levels', then at the bottom there is a slider saying 'internal subwoofer'.
slide this to 0.
click 'ok', then close all the windows.

The internal subwoofer is off, (but can be turned on again if you want), so the crackling should have stopped.
It worked for me...

Hope this helped! ;D
