I have a problem with my Yamaha HS50M's. When i play a song with a punchy bass line i get a crackling noise but i don't think its coming from the woofers, what can i do to resolve this or does this mean that the monitors are on their way out. I've only had them since christmas 2009!

First off make certain it's not coming from the amplifer, try listening via headphones. If that is OK switch the speakers. If you find the sound moves to the other channel with the speaker it is the speaker and not the amp. The next thing to do is closley examine the faulty speakers units looking for damage. Still nothing, then with your fingers spaced out over the cone of the woofer (so you apply pressure evenly). Push on the cone gently so it goes in and out. If is scrapes at all you have a cone that is catching. I'm afraid the woofer must be replaced. If it doesn't catch, your next step is to open up the speaker and look around for damage or bad soldering.

Make the sure the cables are connected properly to the monitors, as in Left Positive to Left Positive, Left Negative to Left Negative on both ends of the cable. Having one polarity switched can burn out your speaker and internal electronics.... I'm speaking from experience. When you burn up a $400 speaker by incorrectly connecting them... it's a big OOPS that makes you feel pretty dumb. Even as a professional A/V guy, it happens.... and sucks. If this doesn't fix the problem, contact Yamaha or an authorized dealer about it. Could be bad electronics internally, but my guess is it's the cables being improperly connected.

Hello. With my HD205 headphones, in the left headphone it has a small crackling noise with certain songs.. I don't know if its meant to be like that? Its done it since I had them first - Happens to bass...


There are two likely causes for this. One is much, much easier to fix than the other.
1) You are turning up the volume too much. Headphones, especially non-top of the line headphones, are not meant to be listened to at very loud levels. In this case, the crackling you are hearing is the speaker trying to reproduce a bass sound that is "clipping", or exceeding the maximum output level for that system. Remember - headphone speakers are very small; they have a harder time producing low sounds accurately. The solution is to just turn them down a little.
2) Assuming problem 1 is not the problem, the other likely issue is that they came with some sort of mechanical defect built in. If you are not playing them loudly, but you are still getting a crackle, especially if it is only on one speaker, they probably are broken. It is probably the jack itself, or the wiring leading up to the earpieces. Either way, it is not a terribly hard fix if you have some electrical know-how, but if you don't, there are plenty of people who can rewire them for much cheaper than it would be to buy a new set. However, if this has been happening since you got them, I would call the manufacturer first and see if they will replace them. Sennheiser tends to pride themselves in the quality of their equipment, so I would not be surprised if they sent you a replacement set.
Hope this helps!

My bass makes a crackling noise it never used to have this problem, i put this little faggy magnet near it and i think its the cause


Sounds like you turned your system up beyond it's capabilities... aka blown woofer. Buy a new sound system from www.pcrepairshop.org and that crackling noise will be gone for good, guaranteed!

Static noise in Yamaha HS50 monitor


Sounds like the voice coil is damaged on the woofer. If you GENTLY press in on the woofer cone, and release, you should not hear any scratching noise. If you hear noise, the woofer needs replacement.

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

No sound from my logitech z4 subwoofer


Is there sound coming from the 2 speakers?

Subwoofers are designed to only play bass, you shouldnt hear much acoustic sound coming from it at all.

The best way to test that is to play a song with a good amount of low bass, see if you hear it coming from the woofer, or can you feel the woofer vibrate?

If there is a hole in the side of the woofer box, when you are playing the song is there any air coming out of that hole to the bass line beat?

I dont know how you have your wiring set up, but if it still isnt working please check to make sure that you have the wiring plugged in properly.

If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know. I hope this fixes your problem.

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.
