Actiontec Frequency Been using GT704WG for a year - no problems. Bought pair of Altec Lansing speakers and can hear ticking through them (3 ticks per second). Signal coming from router. When I shut router down, ticking stops. When I touch router antenna, ticking stops. Tried moving router away from speakers - better but not gone. Can I change the frequency or settings of the router to solve this problem.

You can change the wireless frequency of the router, default is 9, check page 55 of your owner's manual (which is on your installation CD) Are you using the telephone portion of the router? There are NO settings in your wireless router or any consumer router to prevent what you are experiencing. BUT... Approximately 3 ticks a second equates to an 180hz signal. 180hz is a multiple of 60hz which is your powerline frequency. I'm suggesting that it is a noisy power feedback problem, since likely both the wireless router power transformer and the stereo power are on the same circuit. Touching the antenna changes the circuit output impedance which affects the signal. Your solution lies in one of the below, your choice: 1) Buy different speakers 2) Plug router into a different power outlet as far away from the stereo outlet as possible 3) Simply stretch the router as far away from the speakers as possible and live with the faint background ticking. 4) Buy a different router.

Altec Lansing MX6021 Expressionist ULTRA 2.1

The "pluc pluc pluc" noise you're hearing from your Altec Lansing MX6021 Expressionist ULTRA 2.1 speakers could be a sign of a few different issues. Here are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the cables: Make sure all cables are connected properly and there are no loose connections. Try using a different cable to see if that solves the problem.
  2. Check the power supply: Ensure that the power supply is plugged in and working properly. Try using a different power outlet or power supply to see if that solves the problem.
  3. Check the volume: Make sure that the volume on your device is turned up and the speakers are not on mute.
  4. Try a different device: Connect the speakers to a different device to see if the issue is with your laptop or the speakers.
  5. Check for software updates: Visit the Altec Lansing website to see if there are any software updates or firmware updates available for your speakers.
If none of these solutions work, it may be time to consider contacting Altec Lansing customer support or a professional audio technician for further assistance.

Altec Lansing ACS31 not fully working

Time to throw them away. They used to be a good company, but they aren't any longer. I have had two pairs go bad. My replacement hissed when the power was off. Altec Lansing were not interested that they were live when switched off. All switching off did was was cut the source input. I gave them away and bought Bowers and Wilkins MM1. By far the best speakers I have ever owned.

I want to repair a brand new pair of Altec Lansing Tower speakers could use some help

They are disposable items, very poorly designed and bad quality. I had a great set early 90's, they failed so I bought another set around 2010. The hissed even when turned off so I donated them!. I bought a pair of Bowers and Wilkins MM1. A whole different ball game in quality, sound and a lifetime warranty. The problem is getting into them as they have secret hidden plastic catches. Go around the seam in the body with a spudger to look for the catches.

Only one speaker works - altec lansing computer speakers ADA215

The solution is actually quite simple, due to a design flaw. Altec lansing designed a rather cheap mini din plug-in which can either be replaced or repaired depending on your skill and patience level. Your ground contact is fine BUT the positive contact is not making connection due to the fact that the plastic housing has broken away and pulled the contact with it. This can be super glued back into place or just replaced with a new mono minidin plug-in.
