Bass knob not working

When I turn on my speakers and play sound through them the bass is either full on or off as the knob is turned or wobbled I've had the woffer apart and there is no evidence of a fault so must be the turning switch itself can this be repaired or can i just buy a replacement . Cheers Kev

You need to have the variable resistor, which is the Bass control replaced.  It's defective.

Altec lansing 221 computer speakers sound solution

Unfortunately it looks like Altec Lansing goofed up on this set and didn't provide a bass control knob. You will need to use some sort of software equalizer on your computer to turn the bass down.

Why my soundsticks 3 subwofer doesn.t work? only the speakers are working.

Hi, 1. Push the knob on the back of the subwoofer that has the power symbol ( c- ) in. you should see a blue light turn on. 2.make sure you turn the knob on the back of the subwoofer from left to right while playing music inorder to test the level of bass you would like.

Amplifiers GT Series GT5-A604 ........explain settings

the amp probably has a x-over knob, a bass boost knob, and an eq knob. the eq is probably an internal crossover switch that will take the output from either high range (tweeters) or full range (6x9s) or low pass (subs) leave it on low pass. the bass boost however, will add distortion if turned up too high. its not noticable in the car, actually it sounds louder in the car but if you open the trunk and listen, you can tell its distorted bass and actually frying your speakers. the x-over knob is used to tune the frequency at which the amp stops pushing out bass tones. if you like rock music loud, turn it up higher, if you like low deep rap bass, turn it lower. keeping it too high might give you bad sound from either type though. ALSO THE GAIN OR LEVEL.IT IS NOT TO MAKE YOUR SUBS LOUDER IT WILL BLOW THEM .the gain is used to set your amp to your head unit which there is a procedure to do it.

Loss of Bass

Hi there, I would think that you have blown your bass drivers in the speakers. Sometime you may have a fuse which is blown in the speaker but this is not usual. Try on another speaker if you can.

Vizio L42HDTV10A sound problems

In my case, turning the surround sound OFF is what fixed the problem. The bass contibutes most to the perception of the location of a sound. If surround is ON without surround speakers connected, the internal TV speakers can only take the place of what would be the front speakers in a surround system. So turn surround OFF and set your bass preference wherever you want it. That worked for me.

Speaker/sub bass

Hi, it is possible that the sub volume control is worn out. If your particular brand/model uses the rotary/wiper type (variable resistor) then replacing it should do the trick but this involves soldering which be done by an electronics technician or qualified to perform such repairs/replacement. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Crackling Sound From Subwoofer

Check any wiring coming or going to the subwoofer. It sounds like it could be a loose connection.  Is there a LFE or bass boost knob on your subwoofer? Does turning that up/down cause the crackling (if it exists). If so, you could use some tuner cleaner to clean the contacts on the potentiometer knob.

If the crackling is on the subwoofer only, it might be damaged from bottoming out.  See if you can remove the baffle or grille covering the woofer and inspect for visual problems. You can also try to lighly push in and out on the subwoofer to hear if it makes any scraping sounds. If so, it is definitely damaged and the driver will have to be replaced.
