I recently bought a new custom made computer and along with it came the R20 speakers with a subwoofer. The speakers seem to be working pleasingly fine but the subwoofer is not. It is not blowing any air or anything out. I have tampered with the controls in control panel but to my luck, nothing.

Re: Subwoofer not working...!
There is a lot problems, arise from this particular hardware, you can RMS your product, Subwofer for a change for other if has warranty, or buy another sub, from any Radio Shack or other store. may be the insider split sound board if bad, or fried.
try any other brand like Sound Blaster Speakers. for 2.1 speakers.

If your subwoofer does not work on your altec lansing speakers, more than likely you blew the subwoofer amplifier board. I have an ADA-885 system and bought it brand new back in November 2000 and has been flawlessly operating great up until this past month when my subwoofer went out but my "satellite" speakers kept working. After disassembling the subwoofer box I first noticed that the subwoofer amplifier board is seperate from the rest of the grouped boards for the dolby and satellite speakers. The subwoofer box is designed to use the air from the subwoofer to actually cool the amplifier boards inside the unit, great feature until your subwoofer goes out, that is when your main amp will more than likely fail soon after the sub amp fails, as it uses the air from the subwoofer to keep the amps cool. I know this might be an older post but hopefully I can put it in the right category to hopefully be able to help someone out in the future.
You can test the ohms of the speaker with a multi tester. It's a dual voice coil speaker, 6 ohms each.
Well my system is broke and needs another subwoofer amplifier board so if anybody reads this and has this subwoofer, I need my sub amp fixed ! or if you have the subwoofer unit maybe and nothing else to go with it but the subwoofer lights up, give me a jingle, I'd buy it from you !!
the speaker with the subwoofer may not work as the speaker needs a power supply to boost the sound from the PC.....even if you connect to the sound jack of PC using some adaptor it may not give out the required sound.....i mean it will need amplifyer, the job of the amplifyer is normaly done by the big box that comes along with the speakers (called subwoofer).....
Hi there bud , There could be a number of problems as it is a refurbished Speaker Set ,It could be The Subwoofer yes , Have you tried it on other PC's? if it does the same then it is The SPeakers that are faulty :( Hope this helps Happy new year :)
Hi there bud, this could also mean that something in the Subwoofer has blown or shorted, the best thing to do is too take it back too the shop where you bought it and ask them too replace it .its not worth opening it up yourself and losing the warranty... Happy new year . Hope you come right :)
if you bought the computer at a retail place like microcenter take it there and they will help installation. if you got a computer with speakers and a sub woofer; then you plug your speakers into the subwoofer and the subwoofer to your sound card mark with the same color as the plug or the symbol marked speaker or line out.
