    I have the same problem with both A525 speakers. I did a live chat with Dell support and the tech had me download an updated driver. This did not help. I still have the annoying sound/disturbance problem.

    I am now waiting for my 3rd set of A525 speakers. First set - only sound out of the left speaker and the sub woofer did not work. Second set only sound out of left speaker. Will it be 3rd time lucky?

    DELL has sent me two different systems and both give cracking noise in the left speaker. It looks like the internal amplifier in the subwoofer gives to much power to the left speaker. A design fault by the manufacturer...

    I have the same problem. A week ago I received my new Dell Vostro 220 Computer with the A525 speakers and subwoofer. Immediately upon setting up the system and playing some music, I noticed a crackling sound/disturbance in the speaker system. The problem seems to be with the left speaker. The noise produced by the speaker problem detracts greatly from the quality of sound of the music.

Your speakers are fine, it's the sound card that has the problem.

Disturbance while increasing bass in JBL SPYRO

I have a similar problem. You need to open your subwoofer and check if the subwoofers cone cloth is torn. If it's torn you can recone the subwoofer and it will work fine. There are solutions online to fix the cloth using regular synthetic mix cloth but i don't know if it works. Try removing the cloth to see if it sounds better.

Hi, They suddenly stopped working, think I

Try another speaker set.
If this does not fix it, then consider the sound card if it is removeable, get a new one. If it is internal, turn off the sound and install a sound card.

Left channel will not play

Firstly try swopping over the left speaker to the right channel . If still no sound then either the speaker cable will have a break in it & need replaced or the actual speaker will be open circuit. If you get sound from the speaker on this channel then the the speaker is ok. Check your PC's audio set up... Go to Control Panel/ Sounds & Audio devices/ In volume Tab, click in Device volume area... Advanced & then check the Balance settings are not set to one end.

One speaker is MUCH louder than the other

It sound like you have a break in the main wire from the computer sound card to your speaker amp OR the plug is not plug in completely plugged in all the way. Try some other speakers or ear buds / head phones to isolate sound card problem or speaker problem.
