Panasonic sa-pt860 speakers crackling


Panasonic SC PT860 Manuals
The above link is the owner's manual - it may help.
Here are some other ideas:
Try to find out if the crackling sound is coming from all speakers or just one - you may just have one bad speaker.
If the crackling happens at high volume settings, you may be overdriving the system - you'll just have to turn it down!
Try turning down the bass or the subwoofer level.
Is the crackling present with all sources (TV, cable, DVD, bluetooth)?

Sub Speaker giving intermittent loud crackling and sharp loud popping sounds even with main volume control turned off. Crackling sound can be reduced by turning sub volume control off.


It may be the control itself too. In time, these controls can get dust build up inside it. There are volume control spray cleaners available from Radio Shack or other electronic parts stores. The cheat on cleaning the control is to just rotate it from stop to stop as many times as it takes to clear the noise.

Speakers make crackling sound and sound goes in and out.


If the sound crackles when the volume is turned up or down there may be an issue with the volume switch. If the volume is going up and down on its own, I would recommend that you need a new unit as the cost would be greater to fix, then to replace.

I have a wharfedale svp15 passive loudspeaker. The subwoofer has started crackling and popping at low volumes and has no deep bass. At high volumes it sounds great as usual and can't tell if the crackling...


Information I find online says it an Active Subwoofer, so that introduces its own amp as a possible source of the symptom. If there is another version of this model that's passive, all the more reason to believe the amp is the problem because passive speakers don't spontaneously emit sounds.

If there was a physical reason for the crackling I would think more power would make it worse or blow it up.

A poor sub signal cable connection might explain low current anomalies if random noises are entering the signal path.

Make sure the signal, speaker and power cables are not aligned parallel and close to each other.

I have a powered sub for my surround sound and every now and then its starts crackling and popping. i can make it stop by playing with the volume knob or even tapping it sometimes. my old sub did the same...


Does the crackling and popping sound comes only from the sub, or from the other speakers too? Try switching of to check. I think that it is problem on volume control potentiometer. In that case all the speakers must sound crackling and popping. If the problem is only in the sub you have to check its connections.

There is crackling coming from the horn as soon as the power is turned on, the level of the crackle does not alter with the volume control, the cabinet performs fine otherwise ?????


The horn speaker is wearing out. Inside speakers, there is a magnet, the speaker part is attached to a cone that slides over the magnet, They tend to make crackling noises. Try very gently to apply pressure to the horn and then release. If you hear a scratching sound, the horn will need to be replaced

Crackling noise from subwoofer????


sgangsta91,

i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

Crackling Sound From Subwoofer


Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection.  Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.

If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out.  See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.
