Try to identify if all the speakers cracking sounds comes when wiggling the cable that connects them with the pc. In that case the easiest way is to replace this cable with a new one, like this.
If the problem isn't only at the cable post back.
Also in any case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

My proline laptop makes cracking noise when playing songs or video?


Try and lift the rear of the machine off the flat. this will allow more air flow. The cracking is usually caused by blown speakers. Try turning the volume down to lessen this. Or plug in a set of desktop speakers.

Cracking and poping


Check all cable connections, make sure they're plugged in good and tight. If the noise happens when adjusting a volume knob, there is an aerosol spray sold at radio shack that will silence this problem. Otherwise, your speaker(s) may be blown.

My computer speakers are popping and cracking.


Check connecting and Volume settings. Speakers might be blown. This happens when high volume is played and speaker tears causing a poping and crakling sound

Behringer B215A replaced volume level knob does not respond.


You DON'T replace the board. If it is cracked, you bridge insulated wires around the cracks and epoxy them down.

Often the pads break from the traces near the pots. Look for a small crack between the pad of the pot and the circuit trace leaving it. Common problem.

Bose Companion 2 speaker has crackly volume control - simple job to clean if I could get the unit apart!!! Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.


The problem with the crackly sound is caused by dust or dirt in the Reostat that controls the volume. it needs to be cleaned, there are a couple of different types of Cleaners that you can use. Just be sure its safe for the application. (of course the cleaner part is common sense)

this is from Harman support site First you need to determine where the problem is. Try connecting your speakers to another audio source such as a portable CD player. If you receive the proper sonic results, this will tell you that the problem is in the computer and/or soundcard setup. In this case there are many things to try. 1. Interference may be causing the distortion. Please check all surrounding electrical objects and place the speakers away from the problem object. 2. Ensure that the speaker input jack is pushed all the way into the appropriate jack. Check all the connections and secure them. 3. The volume on your soundcard may be set too high. Decrease the volume in your volume control panel. Also check the volume and tone controls on the speaker. 4. Sound card or audio source material may cause a problem. *note* the quality of the audio source is also a factor (i.e. bad recording). The compatibility of your CD/DVD rom drive, soundcard and software will contribute to the quality of your sound.
Good luck

Speakers cracking noise, it seems to happen when the volume is lower and sometimes the speakers cut in and out.


Check for secure wires and that a wire may be slightly shorted to the opposite polarity.

You might also check to be sure the cone is fully secure to the speaker on the outside as well as the middle where it "flexes"

When i turn the volume up to(17-20) my sound cuts out and my speakers make a cracklin noise.i have bought new speakers and rechecked all wires.my speakers are rated at 50 watts rms and my stereo pumps out...


It seems you needs more power to maintain the level of good sound.Maybe the maximum volume is 30 - then the mininum is 15 and you can't hear any cracking sound. If you exceed 15 the minimum, as you said starting 17 - 20 you hear crackling sound .Then you reach ,what they called the "cliping level"so much distortion and crackling sound,your stereo too small to accomodate .You must add a power amplifier so crackling will gone and to fit your listening pressure...

Hope it may help you;
