Question about Computer Speakers

2 Answers

Speaker feedback I bought these computer speakers & I love them, they sound great except that they get an awful feedback from cell phones, my wireless router, my external hard drive. They seem to pickup feedback from all sorts of things. Is there any quick remedy for this?

    Ok so if they are running on the same frequency (which sounds very probable) is there a solution?

    The speakers I am referring to are Altec Lansing VS2421. I'll try the foil fix, thank you for your solution.

I have the same as yours, my solution I placed the speaker with controls closest to the CPU, just less than 10 inches away and the excess wires "especially the Input line" is rolled up and wrapped it with a foil, "the silver wrapper"... So far I have filtered the noise that interferes with my listening...

I hope it works on your system... Mine is Creative SBS20... What's yours anyway?

Everything that has current usually produces a small radio signal. Your speakers may be running at the same signal and screwing it up. You can play around with Scanner Radio's and try to figure out what frequency it's running on. Do this to all the hardware thats causing the problem and i bet it's that they all run on the same frequency and you're just getting interference noise coming through your speakers.

After i install wireless router linksey model wrt160nv3 i get that that clicking sound inmy right speakers.


Just relocate the speakers, try moving them away reception and transmission gadgets, the wireless connection just like celphones emits interferences picked up by speakers,
this also implies like when you put a mobile phone on top of a speaker and then someone calls, the speaker sounds off distinct sound patterns.

We are using a mounted data projector to show a DVD before a school musical program and have a hum that all but drowns out the childrens voices on the DVD. How do we hear the voices and get rid of the hum?...


One of the speakers or more than one maybe next to something is giving the speaker feedback. Try placing the speakers farther apart. A cell phone, office phone, or even a laptop could be giving feedback to the speakers. Tring moving the speakers father apart and at different locations. If that does not work you may possibly have the speakers plugged into the the wrong output outlet. Check the wiring connections to make sure they plugged in properly as well.

Feedback sound


If moving the microphone doesn't work then suspect "microphonics" where a loose electronics component is vibrating and acting as a microphone. Could be cable. Unplug all microphone cables, still feedback? Right click speaker icon, sound properties, temporarily disable computer sound input devices. If still feedback then analog section of sound card (or motherboard sound chip) or your speaker system.

My speakers sound like the sound is playing underwater


It's probably just a playback setting but, take it back anyway. Let them see if they can make it right. If not, the repair's at their cost.

mam, i think that your computer got the problem not your speaker. try to use your speaker onto another computer or use it on some mp3 and see if it plays. if not then your speaker got problem. better send it to repair shop or the place where you bought it. otherwise if your speakers plays or functioning correctly then try to format your computer and install the drivers on it. hope that helps

thank you for using fixya

Logitech X-540 connecting to dell dimension 3000 ???


Your problem is you have a 3 channel sound card on your dell and you bought 5 channel speaker system. You can plug the green to green and get 2.1 sound but you will have to by a 5.1 pci sound like in the link below to get the full use of your 5.1 system.

Feedback noise in speakers and Woofer.


hi wfj1310,
that feedback comes from the distance between the mic and the speakers only. Low the record level from the mic and make the distance bigger.

it makes feedback with any speaker, not only with woofer :-/
