hi Hubbell2008
And Happy Holidays
well, as you can see depending on your audio card, and output power, and sound settings on control panel, if is all up, or down.
you can try that first. But if not work is and Audio Card, type of power output, ....in that case you can change your audio card, if an onboard audio, place a PCI and will be ok, Creative labs models makes diff.

SOURCE: can i add any speakers to my dell vostro 200?

No you don't. As long as you can plug the speakers to the green port on the back of the computer, the speakers are powered and the volume knob on the speakers is turned all the way up. You should hear sound.

Also make sure the sound is not muted in windows.

How can I measure the sound quality from my receiver/amplifier and speakers? It sounds distorted to me and the components aren't cheap (Onkyo receiver and Polk tower speakers)


And if you measure distortion, then what? Do you have a scope and a spectrum analyzer and a calibrated sound source?

The Mk.1 Ear can decide if it likes what it hears. Some people LIKE excess bass, for example.

Determine if it's source-related, cable-related, channel-related, speaker-related by swapping or focusing on one at a time and comparing. Try naming the products and look at the manuals for correct setup.

I am trying to power outside speakers (2 pairs of 8ohm) off a brand new Harman Kardon 2 channel receiver (HK3490). I was having problems with other receivers getting hot and believed it was happening...


By-pass the external Volume control. It may not be "impedance matching" or it may have an internal issue. If it's located outside, it's probably corroded and creating a load on the receiver causing it to shut down. If you still have an issue beyond this , post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

Is there anyway to fix a blown Bose Speaker (201)?


The only 2 solutions are: 1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful). Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.

I have a pair of M3 speakers and one is distorted, it sounds like the cone is warped. What would it cost to replace just the speaker?


I know the problem is a bad speaker it's warped, I was wanting to find a contact to purchase a new speaker. Not the whole housing but the speaker itself.

Polk speakers with Windows Vista don't work


I doubt the speakers need a driver. Is there output from the soundcard? Connect the speakers to an alternate audio source, such as the headphone jack of a CD player or radio. If the
speakers produce sound, the problem is probably
with your soundcard. Recheck your soundcard
installation and setup procedure. Consult the sound
card’s manual. Check the “mute” and “volume” controls on your
soundcard or media player software and keyboard.
Are the speakers connected properly? Make sure the
plugs are securely connected in the proper location
according to their colorcoding and the diagram on th
front of this manual. Make sure the left speaker wire
with the white stripe is connected to the (+) speaker
terminal on the subwoofer.

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system


you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.

cheers,
sean

Crazy cycling noise


a quick test, change the speaker wires between the speakers, if the sound goes over to the other speaker the problem is in the amp. But if the problem stays with the same speaker tower the problem will be in one of the speakers in the tower. since you said you get no sub sound I suspect ithe problem is not the amp, but the sub speaker itself
