Question about Logitech Z-2300 Computer Speakers

Popping in left speaker only...

I just bought the Logi Z-2300. I've noticed that even at lower volumes, the speaker hooked up to the left channel pops alot, while the one on the right channel is clean and clear.

I exchanged it for another set of the same speakers, and I'm having the same problem. I'm using onboard sound on my Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe board, which worked fine with my last set of speakers (old Altec Lansing 5.1 set).

Is anyone else having this problem? I find it odd that it's only the left channel that's popping and not both channels, and that it's happened in both sets I've bought.

I really want to hang on to these so if anyone can tell me what's up it would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Popping in left speaker only...

Just go master volume control and check whether the left and right speaker sound is in balance that is balance must be in middle... i think this audio property may have be changed

I have actually lost my satellite speakers that came with the Logitech Z-2300. I am wondering what my best option is. I can't seem to find anyplace that sells these kind of speakers separately. I...


It would appear you need 2 x 1/4 inch (3.5mm) jack to RCA cables, one for each channel and each speaker, left and right, rather than just the 1 cable ("..and a mini to RCA cord...") you seem to have bought.

The Yellow and Black RCA ports appear to be the Left and Right speaker channels respectively.

The output cable with a green jack that connects to the green jack on the computer's sound card seems to be tied in with the wired Remote Control.

I would have recommended getting a pair of passive 40W RMS Logitech Stereo Speakers.

As long as the speakers you have match in terms of Wattage and Impedance, you should be okay.

I hope this helps.

Logitech Z-2300 subwoofer/Bass volume cannot completely shutoff

Make sure the wired remote is connected completely and if that doesn't work try putting a pillow or a pile of blankets to cover both the subwoofer driver and the air port on it and that should reduce the sound coming from it. Also if it is in a corner or on a solid floor like wood or tile i would move it to a less enclosed space with carpet or a rug. Thats all I got I hope that helps.

Popping Audio

You may have blown the speaker and need to replace it. Try at a low volume and then at high to notice any difference, if the popping occurs only at higher volume then it needs replacing. I hope this helps

Strange problems with Z-2300's

I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Left speaker blown or melted?

This isn't usually in the satellite speakers. The amplifier is usually in the sub and these have a bad habbit of blowing/burning up. Return or replace. Pretty common in this model.

Left Speaker Problem

Sounds like the left channel in the built-in amplifier went out or possibly damage in the connector or cabling. Quick test to eliminate the PC is to connect another set of working speakers or headphones into the PC speaker jack without making any changes. If it works w/o problems then it?s the speakers. You can try plugging the speakers back into your PC and while playing something start wiggling the left channel cables and the main cable that goes into the PC. In particular pay attention to stress points like connectors. If that turns up nothing and you have the appropriate tools and skills you can open the speakers up and test out the solder points for the cables as well. As always make sure your warranty has expired completely before you open them up or start cutting away. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
