Question about Infinity CC-1 Center Speaker

Distorted and low volume voices - Mr French

Have a TSS-750 ss system with CC1 centre channel.

Recently when watching TV the voices are distorted and low volume (ie when watching a football game hear background but hard to hear announcers). When I shut off centre from recevier I get proper voices on other 2 front speakers.

Who know what teenagers did to it.

Any idea what is causing this?
Any quick fix or do I need to send to repair?
Will repair be more that simply buying a new one?

Re: Distorted and low volume voices - Mr French

Hi, first u will have to determine if the center output is bad or the cntr speaker is bad, to do so do not disable the center, simply remove the speaker wires and check if there is noise, if not means speaker is bad, if still noisy then output is bad,u will then need a technician to get the job done.. letr me know..

Why does Infinity TSS-1200 subwoofer make grinding noise?

If it isn't brand new, it sounds like the voice coil is striking. This can be caused by damage to the suspension system or simply an overheated voice coil inside the sub. No easy fix unless your handy at rebuilding speakers. I would suggest buying a new one or sending back under warranty if it is still within warranty period

Good afternoon, I recently bought a SA VE325 speaker set it contained a subwoofer, 4 little boxes and a mid-large box which you haeb have tpo piuyt above uyour tv. Now the problem is we have no cCENTER to...

Hello there looking at the manual i would assume that the mid-large box is actually your centre speaker.

Did you mean that there are no connections left on the back of your amplifier? For a centre speaker this system uses all passive speakers apart from the subwoofer which has a built in amplifier for just the subwoofer, your hifi or home cinema amplifier would need to have at least 5 separate channels to operate the centre speaker as well as the front and rear speakers.

Ideally you would need a 5.1 channel or 5 channel amplifier with subwoofer pre output, any would do but to make things simple one with a digital optical or coaxial input would be best as this can easily carry multi-channel audio with just one connector.

The other alternative if your amplifier does not have a centre speaker output are:

· to get another basic mono stereo amplifier to power the centre speaker on its own however if your main amplifier does not have a pre out connector for a centre speaker you will have to change the volume independently on both amplifiers

· don

After fitting new rubbers the speaker is still distorted

If the speaker is distorted. there are two problems, 1) You did not center the voice coil correctly when you changed the souround. 2) The voice coil is going bad

Hercules XPS 210 sub problem. distorted sound

I think you've just answered your own question. It sounds as if you've coned the sub woofer. Meaning you've fractured the bond between the edge of the speaker body with the speaker cone. Or overheated the voice coil and it's distorted and not getting free movement. Excuse the Pun but it "sounds" like you need a new speaker as a replacement. If it's a particularly expensive speaker it can be reconed. A check of the Net for someone close to you will find a company who recones them. If it's a cheaper one then a replacement would be in order.

Quad 11L One of my speakers seems to distort the sound for a minute or two on switching on the system and then starts functioning normally again. I have a feeling that my toddler may have twiddled the...

First, swap the speakers to see if it stays with the speaker or the amp channel.

Second, disregard the throretical ability of any speaker to handle any amplifier's maximum output. Amp ratings are at a certain power output with a certain amount of distortion. Turn the volume a click higher and power output might rise just a tad but distortion starts to go ballistic. Continue and you get total high current garbage. Clipping (high DC output) will kill any speaker.

Since it seems to go away, I doubt the speaker is damaged, unless torn speaker cone or burnt voice coil can self-repair in a few minutes every time.
