Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Subwoofer amplifier hum on high bass boost.

I got a Dell Altec Lansing sattelite 2.1 speaker setup (ACS340) that I've been using for years. I like to listen to techno from time to time, and I turn the bass up all the way for it. With no signal, I get some pretty annoying hum. I was wondering if there was a way to mod it with some better filtering. There's no ground, so loops is out of the question.

Try attaching a crossover caps of 0.22mf over the inline resistor(out put). This will filter the humming sound created when no sound is played.

Wiring diagram for altec lansing acs340 sub woofer


This is not something that you will get access to from here. Try asking a repair shop if they can get the schematics for this speaker. You could also contact A-L directly.
Not likely to happen.

Furthermore these are inexpesive 2.1 speakers that can be replaced for 30-40 dollars. Not worth the effort.

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.

My speakers only the bass when i hook them up i hear the bass but not the sound please help


It sounds like you have subwoofer system that requires satellite speakers for the high frequencies. If you have these satellite speakers, but are getting no sound, either you have connected them incorrectly, or there is a problem with the amplifier that drives the satellites.

I have a set of 4 Altec Lansing surround sound speakers with a subwoofer i bought in 2003 with my dell computer. I can't get any sound from them. Do you have any suggestions? I tried hooking the system up...


If you are listening through headphones that are plugged in to the Altec system, then your problem is the amplifier is bad. Can't help you online with that. Sorry!

I just got a used set of altec lansing ADA745 computer speakers and can't get power to them. I have never seen computer speakers w/ two wires for input to the computer. I plugged the usual green colored...

That is the setup guide for the speakers.

The two wires plug into a cable that then that single cable plugs into the computer, this way you have sound coming out of the left and right hand speakers.

Need wires for z-340


I just got one too. I guess I'll tear it apart and post the pinout. Also have a set of Altec Lansing satalites (ACS340) with the same connector (hmmmm, Z-340 -- ACS340... probably the same thing they just changed some pins)

I let you know!

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.
