Question about M-Audio DX4 Active Studio Monitors (Pair) Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Distorted audio When I first turn on my M-Audio DX-4 speakers, the bass is distorted similar to the sound of a speaker cone rubbing, After about 10 minutes, however, the distortion clears up (almost). I have had the speakers for about two years and this trouble just started happening. I wonder if one of the electrolylics could be going bad? When I first turn on the speakers, there is a slight hum that wasn't there before. This hum dissappears after about 5 seconds. Both speakers are affected and the cones are definately not rubbing. I am using a Soundblaster Audigy card coming from my computer to drive the speakers.

Hi there. If distorted your speakers may be blown. However this is unlikely. It will also depend on the quality of the audio file you are playing back.

Creative Gigaworks T20 (series I) Left speaker just producing noice, until I turn the Bass knob counterclockwise towards "minus" - then there is sound in the left speaker but even more noice...

The problem that developed with my Creative Gigaworks and other is that occasionally it would not play at all. When the problem occurred, I could eventually get it to work again by turning it on and off several times. I opened up the powered unit (the Right speaker with the controls and found that the wires were really crammed in there, such that a white ribbon wire connector on the bottom was straining to the point of where it was slightly cracked. While playing audio through it, if I touched that wire ribbon, the sound would cut out. So I adjusted the wires slightly to relieve any tension force on that connector and it has not had the problem since. I would open up that unit and check for a similar poor or strained connection. To open the unit, carefully pull off the fabric speaker cover straight off, remove the 4 rubber inserts in the top 4 holes, and remove all 6 philips-head screws in those deeply recessed holes.

Cant hear audio when switched to enhanced mode. no audio when testing subwoofer or center speaker

You say this is a 5.1 system. Five satellite speakers and 1 Bass woofer. Do you have a 5.1 or better sound card? If so, have you connected all of the colored plugs to your sound card? If your sound card only has 3 to 4 audio connections you will not be able to run in enhanced mode.
