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.

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.

Low volume with volume cranked up


Are the speakers battery-powered (with dead batteries?) or AC-powered (but not plugged-in) ?

Do the speakers work correctly when connected to some other desktop or laptop or iPod ?

Low volume on creature speakers


Your speaker volume must have reset. You have to touch the dots on the right speaker to turn up the volume to desired volume. I just remembered that on my system. Hope this helps.

Popping & hardly any volume


i had the first problem and you can probably fix it by turning the volume knob all the way up and down about 20 times. it worked for me. supposedly the potentiometers in the z-5300 get dirty or worn out, somehow this might fix it. for the second problem maybe try plugging it into the laptop and unplugging it again seeing if it goes back to normal?maybe its a problem with the amp?
