Distortion noises in the sound comming out of my computer/clarification

We have tried evrything. We have changed the settings in the equalizer, we brought it to 3 technitiens and even they could not tell us what is the problem. No mather what the format we use, it still does this. It's like hearing an electronic guitar for a split second. Just to give you an idea, this can happen 5-6 times in the duration of 1 song!!

Sounds a lot like a sound card memory issue. open the volume controls, and bring all settings down to bottom, then bring them up slowly, until you find the saturation point(that's what causes that obnoxious sound).

Turn on all of the devices in your sound system. Turn off any auto-equalizers on your sound system to gain fullest control over frequencies. This switch might be found on the receiver or the equalizer itself.

Play a test song on repeat. Choose a song with both extremely high and extremely low instruments so that you have a wide frequency range to listen for.

    • 3
Listen for any obvious distortions in the highs and lows of the songs. Lower the knob on your equalizer for any distorted frequencies until the distortion disappears. Try at first to find the highest setting possible without distortion.
    • 4
Adjust all frequency ranges in relation to each other to find a pleasing blend for your room, trying not to let any one frequency range dominate the others. Use the highest non-distorting settings found in Step 3 as maximum settings, but don't be afraid to lower a booming bass or a screeching flute that disrupts the overall blend of the music.

Play a song from a different genre to test how the EQ works for different types of music. A hip hop song will have louder lows than a string quartet, for example, so make sure your bass frequencies sound crisp on both types of music.

Sound distortion in my 47


First of please ensure that the input device does not produce such distortion by connecting it to a different device. If that is ok, play different DVDs/CDs and see. If the problem still persists, try changing the graphic equalizer settings. If it does not work, this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

Sounds like a problem in the speakers' internal power supply, maybe a faulty capacitor. Speakers need to be looked at by a technician, or replaced with a new set.

actually the harddrive could also be the problem, because when you do have a problem with your HDD your computer tend to intermittently hangup or freezes that causes the distort effect on the sound system. Also you could try using your speaker on a different computer or plug it on an mp3 player so that you could eliminate the factor that your speaker has the problem and if not try using another HDD for your computer or worst case scenarion would be changing the motherboard of your computer.

My subwoofer sound is distorted


whatever player are you using must be having Equalizer in it...try adjusting that [keep that down to a minimum]. Check the program for your audio device...some programs have sound options like jazz,rock,pop these are predefined equalizer changing these could also help. Try using a different media player like VLC [it's free to download on the web] Try uninstalling the audio driver and then reinstalling the driver. It is quite possible that your speaker doesn't match with the Laptop's amplifier or the speaker is gone kaput [a coil problem or something needs repair...but do not repair rather buy a good speaker coz repairing loses the quality].

Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s


Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

I have sound distortion when i listen to music or videos on my computer.


Does it happen in all programs? Try Windows Media Player and an alternate (like WinAmp). If it happens in one, you need to check the equalizer in that program. If it happens in both, check the advanced sound settings on your soundcard
