Re: No sound from the right speaker

Check the speaker if its okay, disconnect the left side one and connect the right side one and play. If it does not then the speaker is bad.

Normally, the red wire will be right side sound and black/white will be left side. However, if you are hooking up power, red is positive and black will be negative.

I have a s108sp subwoofer with a right and left input assuming this is for a cable going to one input on my Sony reciever. The subwoofer also has inputs for speakers. Do I plug the speaker wires into...

Hey there houleo!
If your subwoofer has a stereo input and stereo outputs, then it's a good idea to send the signal from your receiver to the sub, then out to the other speakers you have hooked up. Some subwoofers will take the low frequencies out of the signal to the left and right speakers, so that the sub handles it alone. This often gives a nice crisp sound.

Altec Lansing VS 4221 Right Speaker crackle

First of all take a headphones and connect it to the TV and listen the sound.If it is OK the problem is or the cable or the amp.You probably have two RCA connectors on the cable red and white or black for input of the amp.Connect the cable to the tv again and change places of the RCAs (red to white on the amp and white to red).If cracling is now on the left speaker buy a new cable but if its still on the right you have problem with the amp.And you are right if everything is OK it shouldn't be cracling.I hope that this will help you

Both rear speakers on my z540 system play only the left side rear

Hmmm, this sounds like either a driver issue, or a card/compatibility issue. you might try reverting to old drivers(last resort), making shure you have 4.1 enabled in sound control pannel(do this first), triple checking connections/connectors on both the speakers and the card(remember, you only have 5 speakers, not 8) and if you have the headphone-type phone plug for your speakers, you might try making shure that they are compatible with the jacks on your card, although, I would have to know more about your setup to be completely shure.
