To much bass and vibration


-5 decibels can be quite loud. Either turn down the bass, volume or both. The bass could be vibrating some items on a shelf or any other place. If you continue to play it that loud, you will more than likely, damage the amp.

I have a system installed and i have mtx speakers plus mtx subwoofers i want to know how could i take the bass of the speakers because it sounds horrible when loud


if you turn the bass setting in your radio down it will take the bass out, but may take some of the bass out of the subs as well, if this occurs and you still are not satified, you either have to get a car receiver with a non fading subwoofer preout, or you could get bass blockers for all the speakers you dont want the bass in

Altec lansing 221 computer speakers sound solution


Unfortunately it looks like Altec Lansing goofed up on this set and didn't provide a bass control knob. You will need to use some sort of software equalizer on your computer to turn the bass down.

I turn on my subwoofer and the volume is turned down and it makes a loud buzzing sound, and its not even hooked up to the amp, just pluged in. Thank you, Joel Arntsen


You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little! Please rate my solution!

I've connected a powered sub (bazooka BTA10250D) to my factory system (09 altima coupe 2.5s). I want to be able to control bass on the component speakers and the subwoofer separately. There is no sub out...


We used to use what we call bass blocker capacitors on the component speakers to block the bass coming from the head unit and to allow the bass to only come from the subs...there is several values of these capacitors that you can use(different values correlate to different frequencies). These type of capacitors are available at Radio Shack. You will need to request a NON-POLARIZED Electrolytic capacitor at a voltage rating of not less than 25 Volts...As for the value of the microfarad rating..you may need to experiment with different microfarad values to get the sound you desire...standard microfarad values are 1uF, 2.2uF, 3.3uF, 4.7uF, 10uF, 22 uF, 33uF, 47uF.
You probably won't need to go any higher on the value than those listed....in my experience, I have found the 4.7uF and 10uF to be good for most speakers...to install these...you need to put one inline with the positive lead to each component speaker.

My left speaker is loose


The symptom you are describing is exactly what is known as a "BLOWN" speaker or the voice coil has "shorted", this is caused from the volume being up to loud, heating up the voice coil and frying it, in the future if the bass/sound is distorted then turn the volume down just enough to stop the distortion and this will save the speaker.
As far as getting a replacement speaker, you will have to contact the manufacture to get a replacement.
Good Luck !

For 100 watts it doesn't seem that loud to me. Could I maybe add more speakers (2x10s)?


Our human perception of loudness can be way off. You should get a soundmeter and compare. There are some pretty good ones on eBay new for about $140.

Adding speakers may NOT increase the sound much as the power will then be split between the speakers.

Popping noise while computer is powering down. Any suggestions?


Hi,
Lower your main sound volume. Double click the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of your windows.(was it maxed out?)

go into control panel /sounds and select a lower bass setting in your sound settings. You usually have a choice of rock & roll ( lots of bass) opera setting, classical etc.. choose one with less bass.

Make sure your LINE IN is DISABLED. It may be causing this static feedback.

You may have blown your speakers by playing sound way too loud. You may need to buy new speakers.

Thank you and Good luck. *s*

"cracking" noise


Your subwoofer is not capable of playing as loud as you want it to. That sound is the woofer reaching its limit. If you have any bass tone setting on your receiver set them to flat. If there are any other bass settings i.e contour, loudness boost etc turn them off. You can also try putting the woofer into a corner. This will increase the output. Closer to you would also be louder. Otherwise you need a sub with more output. Don't let the power rating fool you when you get a new one.
