    Hi,

    I have the same problem. I have Altec Lansing ADA745 4:1 speakers, and do not know if the speakers, or my PC are the problem.

    There are moments that the full volume comes back for a few seconds and then it drops again to very low.

    I am also trying to find a driver for my speakers, but can not find one for the Altec Lansing ADA745 4:1 speakers

After I posted my problem, I browsed a bit further through the other posts and solutions, until I came across the solution of TrickyTrev34 and gave it a try. However, I did not slice the cable, but did it as follows: 1. Switch off power of the sound system on the subwoofer box. Disconnect the Front Right (FR) speaker box (the one with the volume control) from the subwoofer box.
2. Remove the silver coloured metal oval on which the speaker box stands. Now you'll see a small screw at the bottom of the speaker box. remove it. 3. Carefully remove the silver coloured metal protection plate (with all the little holes) from the front of the FR speaker box by wedging it from the top with a flathead screwdriver or other thin blunt object. Now you'll see the speaker and 4 holes with screws inside. Remove screws and speaker box opens up. 4. Inside you should see six wires (Red, Blue, Yellow, White, Green & Black). Carefully cut the GREEN wire only.
Insulate the both ends of the GREEN wire with electrical tape or heatshrink or similar.
5. Put the FR speaker box back together in reversed order. 6. Connect FR speaker back to the subwoofer box. Make sure the volume setting on your PC is very low, because when you switch back on the power of the subwoofer, you should be blasting again. As TrickyTrev34 already mentioned, the only downside of this procedure is that it will disable the volume control on the FR speaker, but who cares, your sound system works again, and you can still control the volume via the PC playback control panel and/or the multi-media keyboard if you have one.

I had the same problem and found the root cause to be the RF speaker connector at the back of the subwoofer. The male and female connectors are OK. It is the 5 male pins inside the connector and the way they connect to the female holes that is the problem. Wiggle the RF speker connector as you move it in and out until you get 100% of audio voilume back. Once you get it back, do not move the connector. Have not found a permanent solution to date beyond this.

Low volume with volume cranked up


Are the speakers battery-powered (with dead batteries?) or AC-powered (but not plugged-in) ?

Do the speakers work correctly when connected to some other desktop or laptop or iPod ?

Low volume on creature speakers


Your speaker volume must have reset. You have to touch the dots on the right speaker to turn up the volume to desired volume. I just remembered that on my system. Hope this helps.

Possible blown speakers


I have experience with that model of speakers. When they give up the ghost, the volume is VERY low. But just to be on the safe side, check the volume properties to make sure nothing is set too low. Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. Check the slider bars here, check in the Advanced area as well to make sure nothing is low and check the Speaker Volume as well. If all the bars are set to their maximum, it's time for some new speakers.
