Question about M-Audio DX4 Active Studio Monitors (Pair) Computer Speakers

Balance problem with DX 4

I'm using M-audio DX4 desktop monitors and the sound in the left speaker is considerably louder than that of the right speaker. I've checked the obvious connections and software/hardware points and they are all equal. (both meters and audio) Headphones sound fine and there doesn't seem to be a problem with the speaker cables. In order to get a balanced sound I have to turn the pan knob in software 3/4 of the way to the right.

    I've always noticed this problem with my speakers, but now, the left speaker practically ignores the volume knob. That is, it blasts full volume when the knob is all the way down, and can only get louder when the knob is turned.

    I have the Studiopro 3's from M-Audio, but my right side volume is lower, then the left.  I have to go into the balance setting on my Mac and boost the right side, which takes away my maximum volume.

If you are saying that the left side is LOUDER than the right it could be DC offset on the recording or it could be phasing issues.

Audiosource amp 100 on lower volumes right speaker louder than left speaker 2.1 setup

The problem is not due to how the circuitry is configured; the problem is due to failure of some element in the right channel amplification circuit. This will require detailed troubleshooting to correct.

Packer bell speaker balance

That speaker is probably broken. But to be sure it's not an audio setting that is off, try this.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and open it. Adjust the Wave Balance by making sure it is in the middle. If it is to the left or right one of the speakers will not have sound.

You can also get to the audio sound properties by clicking on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time.

To make sure the speaker is not broken just plug it up to another computer.

My Aiwa Colour TV, model No. TV-A2019, has developed audio problems. 1. The audio output from the speaker is high even when volume is set at level one. Audio output is constant for volume level 1 to...

You just come aroung the sound decoder section of your tv. Decoder problems may cause the fult you pointed out. Since all the controls are electronically controlled, and all are through sound decoder, which converts sound to stereo the problem must be there. Since sound comes from two channels are ok, there is no problem around sound output. Check for some soldering loose contact, wire socket loose cotanct also.

Hello, i have m-audio dx4 studio speakers. the treble on one side has stopped working. they are over the warranty and would possibly charge more than i'm willing to pay, i wonder if it would be something...

only if you can get the replacement part from m-audio. if you replace the tweeter with a generic one, it will ruin the sound of the monitors, and m-audio, most likely, will not let off of 1 tweeter unless you send it to them for repair.

I have a pair of Monitor 10's looks like they were from 1987. The sound in one speaker is one quarter of the other - any ideas??

Hi there.
What kind of amplifier do you use to drive them?
Switch the cables to the speakers, left to the right one end the right to the left but be sure the plus and minus are right on both amp and speakers. If the one is still much louder than the other one check the cable from your player to the amp. Switch them white/left to red/right and vise versa.

M-Audio DX4 Studiophile Monitoring Speakers - Fried!!!

Hi Mr Goodrice
Happy Holidays
You may friied the capacitor of power regulator, or power suppy module. have to get to some place to make the change, or you have to RMS the speakers to US to replace. no other thing can be done. also you need a special conector and transformer to get the right voltage there.
good luck
