Hi airnurse

If you are using a cassette deck for a source of music, then it will have dirty heads. This can be cured by using a head cleaner cassette. Muffled sound from the loudspeakers usually points to a faulty high frequency driver(tweeter). Is the sound muffled on radio or other sources as well. If so, then you have faulty tweeter(s) to any speakers that are muffled.

Of course in saying that, you should check that someone has not just turned the treble control all the way down, or the bass control alll the way up :) Pays to check.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I have 4 outdoor speakers and when I hooked up 2 of them the sound was good but when I hooked up the other 2 the sound is muffled. I used 16 gauge wire at about 80 feet. Could the wire size be the problem?


It sounds like the speakers ore out of phase. You need to make sure that all the + connections are connected to the + and the - to the -. If one of the two are reversed there will be cancellation of the sound. All the speakers must move in the same direction all at the same time.

I have a new sony home theater w wireless rear speakers, the sound is not acceptable. I have fooled with speaker settings for hours...the surround sound is loud and good, but i cannot hear or understand...


Hi, With all due respect, there is not a lot you can do appart from return the unit. This all in one units are pretty horrid quality wise. There is very little control over the eq and balance of the system. I'm sure you can turn the centre level up, but I guarentee you, it will still sound muffled because they are only little cheap plastic boxes that are made in bulk cheaply and they make thee money by slappiny the Sony name badge on it. Sorry, not a fan.
You should always try before you buy. No one has your ears, only you. Therefore only you know what sounds right to you.

I have a SAmsung HTZ310R home cimema system and recently been experiencing audio drop out. I stream movies from my PS3, and play BD's, watch DVD's. Havent had any issues until recently, when sound started...


Sounds like a couple of coincidental but unrelated symptoms.

Optical cables need precise seating and no tight bends.

Muffled, channel-specific sound is usually on the analog end. Speaker connections maybe.

Rear speakers do not sound right they are working but sound muffled or something help??


Rear speakers in 5.1 are no more than sound reinforcement. The brunt of the work is done by the front left and right with most of the burden falling on the center channel.

Sound coming from speakers is very quite. must


check your manual for a quiet mode, or reset factory defaults. it might be stuck in "attenuator" mode, where sound is muffled, in case you're answering a phone.
Good luck!

Muffled sound from rear speakers why watching TV


switch the HDMI cables around to make sure its not one of them, if the problem is one of them it will move with the cable,if no change i would suspect the coaxial cable next.

We just bought a new 52 inch Sharp LCD and the right speaker is muffled. Is this common? How do I fix it? Should I just take it back?


If the set is new, don't waste your time trying to diagnose the problem. The sound should not be muffled. It can be as simple as a piece of sealing foam that has moved during shipping, but return the set for warranty exchange. It should not have failed this soon (or at all!).

Speaker jack not working


Sounds like your right front output transistors/IC may have a problem, not the jacks. Time for a trip to the shop I fear.

JVC RX-618V SOUND IS MUFFLED


check to see if the radio is clear. If it is it may be the signal going into the amplifier. if it is muffled as well, depending if you have an Equalizer hooked to the unit. This also could cause the problem. Finally check the bass, treble balance and volume knob but turn them back and forth while unit is on and see if signal clears up momentarily. if this is the case the control knobs need to be cleaned. Also spin the connection jacks {RCAs} in the rear and see if this clears it up. If not you may have to have the unit serviced by a professional.
