Question about Harman Kardon HK595 Computer Speakers

2 Answers

I've got an HK-595 system (Subwoofer and 2 satelite speakers with controls on one speaker for Center, Bass, Volume, Treble and Surround) for my PC. Everything worked fine for quite a while, but then (it seems to me that this happens if I unplugged something and then plugged it back in) my speakers started making an unbelievably loud squeal when the volume was turned up even a single notch (from 0) ... I've checked every setting I can think of on my computer and nothing makes even the slightest difference ... Even when I choose "Mute All" from the Windows controls, there's no change ... So, am I wrong to think that the issue is with the speakers themselves? Any suggestions?

I have a slightly different model but still with the sub woofer and the two speakers. I had this probem, and discovered that when you turn down the volume for the surround mode (labeled surr on mine) it will solve any hissing type noises. Hope this Helps!

I am having the exact same problem with my Harmon kardon PC speakers. It is related directly to the speakers (subwoofer). If you plug head phones into the headphone jack on the satellite speaker you will not hear the noise. I am still searching for a solution, I love these speakers!

    This is a problem in the surround section, replace caps c59 (10uf@50v), c63 (220uf@16v), c64(100uf@16v). Also check for any other caps in the areaAdd a Comment

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

5.1 surround sound


Here is how you fix it. Its really easy actually take a look at your Subwoofer 99% of the time you can control two controls for your bass somewhere around the Subwoofer. If you raise the volume of your Subwoofer you'll get more bass. Try it and let me know how this works out for you alright.

Hi Cassie, unless your receiver is a surround reciever, it won't have an actual subwoofer output. The good news is that you can use either a "line out" jack or a "tape out" jack instead, which most receivers do have. These jacks always have the signal, so there are no special settings to remember - simply operate your receiver as usual. Everything comes out of these jacks, not just the bass - but it won't matter since your subwoofer will only reproduce the bass frequencies. The bass information is generally identical in both left and right channels, so either the right or left jack should work fine, and it's okay to leave the other one unconnected. The only bad thing is the line and tape outputs are not affected by the receiver's bass and treble controls, so you'll have to control the bass volume at the subwoofer if it has a control. If you can't control the amount of bass you hear, turn up the volume and reduce the treble which will give the illusion of more bass. I'm assuming you have "powered" subwoofer (has its own built-in amplifier). Good luck!

You need to use a digital interface cable between the sound card and the speakers to get all of the 6 channels to work properly.
