Volume very low won't go up - Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers

Posted by on

  • sipreal Aug 08, 2008

    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.

Somehow the ringer got turned off. Can't figure


Adjusting the Ringer, Earpiece and Speaker Volume

Adjusting the Ringer Volume

You can choose from four ringer volume settings (off, low, medium, and high) separately on each handset or the base.

With the phone in standby, press or on the handset or VOLUME or VOLUME on the base. The handset or base sounds the ringer at that level.

Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make the ringer volume louder. Use on the handset or VOLUME on the base to make it softer or turn it completely off.

When you hear the ringer volume level you want to use, stop pressing keys.

The handset or base will use the new ringer volume starting with the next incoming call.

Note: If you set the ringer volume to Off, the handset or base won't ring. Other handsets or base will ring according

to their individual settings.

Muting the Ringer (One call only)
While the phone is ringing, press /Mute or END on the handset or on the base to mute the ringer

When recording, the playback is too low to hear. Is there a volume to adjust?


Hi allenb554,

This is something very usual with most digital cameras which concentrates more on the video clarity rather than the sound aspect.

However , you don't need to worry about the low sound , because even though the sound may be low , you can easily increase it by various tools for e.g. total video converter for one , you can increase the volume directly by percentage ratio and there you go , you won't have to be bothered about the low sound much.

I have tried it and found that the clarity of the voice does not get affected on increase.

Hope this helps ..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

Sansui sv-2012 tv volume is very low and suddenly increase


Hi srinivas_327,

This is common for some sansui televisions,

All you need to do is to go in the audio settings and turn "ON" the AUTO volume option .
This will help all your channels to have a similar volume , so you won't be surprised by sudden increase in volume.

Hope this helps ...:)

Can I hook up 4 speakers to my RCA system?


Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-RS2653-manual/id/404ci767/t/2/

Do you mean other than the ones that came with it? NOT recommended. But not impossible either. You assume all risk of equipment damage if you proceed.

First, kiss your warranty goodbye.

I'd go with a series connection or you WILL present too low an impedance to the modest amps.

That means + to minus on one speaker, then + of that speaker to - of the next, then + of that speaker back to - on the amp. Repeat for the other channel.

Start with LOW VOLUME and see how the amp reacts. Of course, you'll have no way of controlling individual volumes so if the speakers are mistmatched it won
