Unless I turn the computer sound volume very low the sound is very distorted. Sounds like a mismatch in impedance. Any suggestions? Could it be a driver issue? Thanks, Chris

It is a driver issue, you had the right driver name but the version could be the one that never match.

At low volume it is fine after you get to about 20 on the volume it starts to crack,pop and distort very bad what is making this happen


Your speakers may say 350 watts but that is the peak wattage at which they blow up and not a wattage they can sound distortion free at. Look for the RMS wattage which is probably around 40 watts. If you look at the specs on your receiver you will see it will put out a maximum of about 50 watts but the distortion on the receiver is above 1 percent at anything over 22 watts. That means they are going to start distorting at around half volume. The other thing you might check for is a impedance mismatch between the speakers and the receiver. Is the receiver set up for an impedence output of 8 ohms but your speakers are 4 ohms impedance.

Low output with high volume


sounds like distortion is being caused by trying to amplify a low volume level from the input device. try putting the ipod volume at a medium level and try again to see if the distortion goes away/reduced

The speaker has a low power output


The output of a speaker primarily depends on system design (obviously) However, perhaps you have sourced a replacement or 'upgrade' speaker for an existing system. In that case, perhaps you have an impedance mismatch. If your amplifier is designed to drive, say, an 8 ohm speaker, and you connect a speaker of 16 ohms impedance, then your sound will be softer. On the other hand, you may have connected more than one speaker to one power amplifier output. If you connected in series you add the impedances. If connect in parallel you work out the impedance using this formula:
1/Answer= 1/Speaker A impedance + 1/Speaker B impedance + 1/Speaker C impedance etc. So if you connect three speakers in parallel, each of 8 ohm impedance:
1/Answer=1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 3/8
3X Answer=8
Answer = 8/3 = a little less than 3 ohms.
Reducing the load like this makes the sound louder, but risks distortion or even damage. Check your manual for amplifier tolerances. Cheers, Don.

I have a 2001 chrysler voyager installed a kenwood stereo and when i raise the volume to where its lound the radio will turn off and on untill i lower the vol


My electronics savvy source says you may be overdriving the amplifier in your Kenwood stereo to an impedance-mismatched set of speakers, meaning that the speakers are impedance mis-matched to the Kenwood stereo, and therefore operate ok (but inefficiently) at low volume, but cut off completely at higher volume.
Fix: match the impedance of your speaker network to the specs on your Kenwood car stereo. Once this is done, you should be able to crank up the volume to the point of permanent hearing loss.
SAFETY CAUTION - sound levels above 85 decibels produce NIHL (noise-induced hearing loss).

MY amp is going into clip mode. what is clip mode on an infinity car audio amp?


either your pushing your subs to hard and its creating a backsurge of resistance, or the spider wires are touching the frame causing them to foul out. It honestly sounds like you are trying to run too low of an impedance subwoofer, and your amp infinitys clip to keep from distorting, distortion played through a subwoofer at high volumes is damaging to the subwoofer and the amplifier. reduce your gain, and check your wires, the clipping should stop, a good rule of thumb always have an amplifer that will do rms what your speakers can do peak, so that way you can keep the amp turned up only 1/4 of the way and be pushing your subs at a decent rms volume with 0 distortion.

Sound Distortion


somekind of hardware side failure or bad drivers.
I hear sounds from my audio output if i connect my headphones there directly but when I connect it to my speaker system they filter the distortion.

Power shuts off when I try and turn the volume up on the center channel. Center channel volume is very low and i can barley hear it. any suggestions?


Verify that you don't have a bad speaker in the center enclosure. Any change in there will cause an "impedance mismatch".  ...accordianman
