Question about Philips SBP1100/37 Portable Speaker System Computer Speakers

3 Answers

My Philips SBP1100 speaker' volume is not loud enough

How come the volume is not loud if I plug it into my ipod nano or my Sony lap top with the volum switch on my lap top has already approached the top.That means the loudness will be huge if I use the speaker on my lap top but just fairly loud on the philips speaker. Could anybody teach me how to fix it?

Were they ever loud? If they weren't (which is my guess - judging by the picture) is that they are low wattage which essentially means that they are not intended to be loud. They are most likely to be used as a small compact, low-noise speaker for a smal MP3 player where high (club-vloume) wattage/volume is needed. If they used to be loud check the volume control on your laptop and check each and every setting that there is. One stupid little setting could be a big difference. Audio Properties in the control pannel could be helpful but don't mess with those settings in the control pannel unless you are almost positive as to what they are and what they do. You could cause yourself a bigger problem. Remember that most laptop speaker outputs are actually for headphones and are not intended to go super-high as they are designed for headphones and not to hurt ears at high volumes. Hope this helps. If not try checking back with me. Best of luck. Bonne chance!

Try accessing the audio device under your 'My Computer' Devices settings on your laptop. Generally you can turn the system volume up and down for several devices, included outbound devices. While the main speaker volume on your PC speakers may be set to the max, there are other auxiliar outputs that your PC will recognize, and those may be turned down. Access your audio devices and make sure that all outputs are set to max levels, and this should solve your problem.

Volume wont turn up


Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.


Instruction:



1 Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.

2 Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the center button.
3
Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.

4 Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.
5
Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the center button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the center button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the center button.

Goodluck

Tips & Warnings
If you set up a combination and forget it, you can reset your iPod Nano and start over again. Resetting will not lose any of your downloads, but you will need to restore or reset many of the settings you initially chose when you first set up your iPod.
Changing the volume limits on your iPod Nano covers everything on your player, but the sound levels for songs, audio books and shows will vary based on how they were recorded.

    Can i connect my I-TRIGUE 2200 speakers to my laptop? if so, can you tell me how to? I need to amplify my music for a party and I want to use the ones from my brother's desktop and I rather not upload...


    Hello,

    Plug the speakers in to the head phone jack on the lap top but keep top volume on the laptop FAIRLY LOW. Then play some music and adjust the volume on the speakers.

    It it is still not loud enough turn the volume on the laptop UP A LITTLE.

    If you turn the volume up on the laptop too much the sound will distort.

    Hope that helps.

    The volume control on my new iPod Nano isn't working


    The iPod Nano has the ability to "lock" the volume of music played at a particular level. Perhaps this only affects the volume of the earphones (versus the internal speaker). Please see "Setting The Maximum Volume Limit" in the user's manual:
