I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. my subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is - b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 smy subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is - 972ed04.jpg src="/uploads/images/972ed04.jpg" alt="972ed04.jpg" class="h_mi" />

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a my subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is - 3ff9290.jpg level (i.e. until there is no hum).

Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

You need to lower the bass from the sub woofer bass knob. If u have any sound system, switched on with an amplifier(built-in or external) and if u keep it idle by not playing any media files, it will make noise which is primarily due to amplifier in the sound device.

Subwoofer makes noise like an untuned TV regardless of volume knob


I would suggest your crossover unit has failed in the speaker cabinet. The crossover circuit board separates the low and high frequency content of your stereos audio signal. The low frequencies go to the bass unit (woofer) and the high frequencies go to the tweeter speaker. If the capacitor on the crossover goes open or near open circuit then noise is introduced into the sound system. Replace either the capacitor or crossover unit.

Tip

Noise Control and Being a Good Neighbour


Whether you live in a private dwelling, or in a multiple home dwelling, such as a condo or apartment building, one should pay attention to controlling the sound from home theatre and stereo systems. In this case, we are generally talking about managing the bass frequencies of the sound system. High frequencies tend to be absorbed by common building materials. The physical/mechanical aspects of sound transmission are complex, but the average person can apply some simple and inexpensive methods to minimize the unwanted transmission of bass frequencies beyond the listening space. <br /> Transmission of bass frequencies can often be controlled by placing bass-producing speakers on pieces of rubber material. These can be as simple as scrap pieces of rubber mat, salvaged rubber feet from other equipment, etc. The physical placement of speakers can determine the amount of bass frequencies that the sound system produces in the listening space. Generally, more bass is generated by placing speakers in corners, and along the shortest wall of a room. <br /> Of course, adjusting the bass and volume controls is a method that can be used to satisfy personal tastes or to control the sound in any situation. Many home sound systems now employ a subwoofer to provide enhanced bass response. This can add lifelike sound quality to the home listening experience, but it is probably the source of most noise complaints. The subwoofer channel of most video program sound tracks has more bass intensity than one generally finds in television, radio or music sound sources. To prevent disturbing the neighbours, one should employ all of the methods detailed above, to reach a happy medium of being able to enjoy full spectrum audio within reason. Personally, I ask my neighbours listen in their homes, while I adjust my maximum sound system volume to a level that they would not complain about. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

I have a system installed and i have mtx speakers plus mtx subwoofers i want to know how could i take the bass of the speakers because it sounds horrible when loud


if you turn the bass setting in your radio down it will take the bass out, but may take some of the bass out of the subs as well, if this occurs and you still are not satified, you either have to get a car receiver with a non fading subwoofer preout, or you could get bass blockers for all the speakers you dont want the bass in

I am having the exact same problem with my Harmon kardon PC speakers. It is related directly to the speakers (subwoofer). If you plug head phones into the headphone jack on the satellite speaker you will not hear the noise. I am still searching for a solution, I love these speakers!

Fill in the blanks about the working receiver.

You mention another subwoofer, which suggests your receiver manages the bass and possibly sends most or all of it to the sub.

If it's NOT sending the bass to the speaker terminals you use to drive the AM5 that would explain it's virtually silent bass module.

If those speaker terminals on your receiver can be set to LARGE, do it. Otherwise they assume the speakers are incapable of handling bass.

Need to hook up bass system to 1999 ford explorer can anyone assist me


Probably need an installer - depends on yr/make/model of car - stereo and wiring diagram for sub system. There are lots of questions need answering and if not installed properly, you can certainly damage the stereo, sub system. Subs use a lot of power and improper wiring could cause problems, even fires !

Noise from speakers when playing basses


Hi,

Offhand, could either be the subwoofer speaker itself or the electronics (amp and/or crossover). One way to determine is by physcially checking the sub speaker. When playing with bass on, pls try restricting speaker movement by pressing on it and see if the noise is reduced. Another is to temporarily replace the speaker. You can try speakers meant for the car, home entertainment or book shelf, just dont set the volume too high.

If the speakers are ruled out, then it would be the electronics inside. For this, you would need familiairty with electronic components and circuittry, a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to an oscilloscope and an audio signal generator would be nice but not a necessity. The idea is to inject a constant audio signal and determine where the noise (if electronic) is coming from. In most instances, it would be a leaky electrolytic capacitor either in the input stage or feedback loop. At other times, it would be also a capacitor in the band pass filter.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

100watt sub


There is a problem wwith teh power supply or the amp section. Does the noise remain constant or does it vary in volume? The sub should have a level control, does the noise vary with that control?
