Can I use my Logitech x-230 speakers without the sub-woofer? My sub-woofer got busted!! Any suggestions?Perfectly good speakers!

i had the same problem with same speaker system. the amp for this system is inside the bass speaker. if your amp is still working but your bass speaker is not you could cut the wires to that speaker making sure the cut wires do not short out. i was quoted more to repair them than it was to buy a new set. but i wont be buying logitech again as ive had two lots fail.

Hello. I just purchased these speakers and there is a low static hum in them. Also, if I turn up the bass volume on the subwoofer I get a deep hum and no sound. Any assistance would be greatly...

Double check your wiring again, sounds like something is either not hooked up right or maybe you got faulty speakers. There shouldn't be any hissing or humming in any speakers. Get a flash light and make sure you have it in the right spot on your computer most sound cards have about 5 different jacks you could have simply put it in the wrong jack.

Ground hum loud

Groung hum is usually caused by another 60 cycle interfearance. The two case grounds are not sharing a common ground. Use a 2-prong adapter on the speaker power cord, thus isolating the ground to the speaker.

Sometimes you can take an extra audio cord and connect (a not used connector) from the bass speaker to the computer, just so it will have an additional ground.

Re: Boston digital BA735. Hum with or without input signal.

Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.

Constant hum from speakers

It sounds like you might have a grounding issue. Try connecting to the wall outlet with a ground prong lifting adapter. Not just the speakers but the source plugged into the speakers also. Good luck.

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.

I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).
Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.

I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

Loud humming coming from subwoofer

This can be caused due to an increase in local interference. The hum is decreased when you plug in the satellites because the interference is spread over a longer area. You may notice that speakers tend to hum around things like cell phones and power outlets. To see if this is the case, move the speakers to another part of the room if you can, slide the desk around, plug the computer in at another room, something like this. If the hum gets louder or quieter, it is interference at your new place. This can be solved by finding a new area to set up your computer stuff at. Since it's mostly the subwoofer, try elevating it off the ground, there may be a power main running under the floor.
