Question about Altec Lansing AVS 500 Computer Speakers

Speaker popping when computer is on or off.

Altec Lansing AVS 500 Speakers
Realtec high def audio


I'm getting an annoying popping sound whether the compter is on or off. This is constant fairly non stop. If I unplug it then plug it in later it stays off for awhile then starts again.
I saw somewhere else that it might be the internal amp?
Is there anyway to salvage these speakers or are they pretty much gone. They have worked fine up until recently. All of the other speakers work fine its just the subwoofer.

    I have the same issue with my set. It is a great set of speakers but recently the subwoofer started making a constant thump thump noise. It will do it even if i press the power button on the speaker to turn it off. Please help. I don't really want to invest in another set of computer speakers and throw these out.

I have the same issue. Speakers were working fine then the sub-woofer just starts err...pulsing/popping/ The speaker cone is actually moving and it's like it's in a kind of loop. Powering off kills it for a while, but then it comes back making the whole speaker system unusable.

Mic is on, but no boost.
Not coming through all speakers, just the sub-woofer.

These were a good set of speakers, seems a shame to have to junk them.

I use to get that same sound but only when I first booted up.
Is this only happening when you have the volume up and does it happen if you turn down the sound all the WAY not off
Your MIC could be enable and on boost level.
If you sound is popping from the music or other source is it from all the speakers???
I can try and help

I have altec lansing speakers AVS500 and have no sound


It sounds like the subwoofer speaker has blown. If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron and speakers then you can open the case and replace the speaker with a replacement subwoofer speaker. A good online store for replacement speakers is PartsExpress.com

If you are using windows media player check if your player is configured to have an echo. If it is configured remove it. If it is not configured to have an echo and if you are using any soundcard have that sound card check by an expert or by your vendor and let them check it out if it is still under warranty.

AVS 500 subwoofer speaker


If you have a digital tester just select DC voltage then connect the positive leads of the digital tester to any of the wire coming out of the 18V adapter (WARNING do not connect to the wire connected to the main) and then the other lead of the digital tester which is the negative connected to the other wire of the 18V adaptor. If in the screen of the digital adapter reads a negative value, then it indicates that the other wire is the negative and the other is positive. Otherwise if the tester reads a positive value then your tester's leads have got the right connection.
P.S. please rate me.
