Hi. I was -just- listening to music and both my speakers were working fine when all of a sudden the left one stopped working. I thought no sound was coming out so I went to Control Panel to verify and noticed that it does emit sounds, but at a veeery low volume. When I put up the volume to its max it sounds like if it were in its lowest setting possible AND it has some sort of static at the same time. What's wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Left Speaker Problem
Sounds like the left channel in the built-in amplifier went out or possibly damage in the connector or cabling. Quick test to eliminate the PC is to connect another set of working speakers or headphones into the PC speaker jack without making any changes. If it works w/o problems then it?s the speakers.
You can try plugging the speakers back into your PC and while playing something start wiggling the left channel cables and the main cable that goes into the PC. In particular pay attention to stress points like connectors. If that turns up nothing and you have the appropriate tools and skills you can open the speakers up and test out the solder points for the cables as well.
As always make sure your warranty has expired completely before you open them up or start cutting away. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Its likely a broken wire. You can take them apart if you are careful and re solder the wire if you have the tools and are ok with doing that. its a little tricky. if you need more help email me. n_raven99(at)hotmail.com
I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:
Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer
Turn off the main switch
Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob
Repeat again (2 times)
Replug the control pod
Turn on the main switch and the control pod
See what happens
I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.
