My subwoofer smells smoky and there's a humming sound..
Well i've just decided to listen to some music as always. I turned the switch on and all I hear is a humming sound.. Like close interference but a lot louder and it switches between the speakers and the subwoofer. Also, it doesn't smell right.. Smoky/Burning kind of smell..
My speakers are like the ones above but 2.1 and they're used when connected to my laptop.
Any suggestions as to what this could be guys? And whether it'd be able to be fixed?

Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!
there could be a couple of things that could be wrong with your car first of all saturns are bad for the ignition switchs going bad, another thing is the fuel pump could have went out they will go out without warning. The way to check the fuel pump is to go to the gas cap and remove it and put your ear down to the nozzle and have someone turn the key to the on position and listen 4 a humming sound if you dont hear no humming sound most definitely your fuel pump is out. If you do hear a humming sound your fuel pump is working like it suppose to. Then you will have to have the key switch checked by a dealer to see if the switch needs replaced. hope this helped
No, the CV speakers are very efficient speakers. That means they create a lot of volume for the amount of power. I will start by saying you will be relatively happy but not blown away.
The HK is an alright HT receiver (very new and feature loaded). It makes a rather weak stereo receiver for it is made for a home theater environment. If you only have a pair of speakers (optimal for music listening) then you have paid for a bunch of other channels that will remain dormant. You would be best off to get a very high-power stereo receiver or integrated amp instead of your HK.
CV speakers are built to blast, but they sounds pretty good at the same time.
Feel free to ask me any audio related question, I've worked in the industry for a good part of my life.
Well folks I solved my problem and the amp has never sounded better. It had always hummed and now it close to stone quiet. The secret was it really never a problem with the amp. The problem was the result of either the pre-amp, interconnect cables, or the combinations of them. The solution came when I added a "drain wire" or ground to the cable I was using. There must have been a ground loop or some in-balance that required a wire to be connected to the earth (-) side at the source on the interconnect and then left unconnected at the other or receiving end of the interconnect. Anyway, no more hum, and the solution took some spare wire and solder.
Are you listening to AM or FM? If you are listening to AM, trying rotating the radio. You may be picking up some type of local AM interference. If it's happening on FM....then I guess there is always a possibility that you may have a defective power supply and what you are hearing is the hum from that.
Some of the larger TV's are DISH ready, meaning that they have the
tuner inside for SAT TV. The SAT tuners often have an internal fan that
makes a humming noise. If it sounds like something other than that, you
might have a bad component in your sound circuit that allows 60 HZ hum
through the speakers.
If it is a rear projection LCG TV it has a fan in it to cool the
bulb. You will hear the fan if you listen closely. It usually cannot be
heard over the volume.
The fluorescent bulb and electronics inside make humming
sound naturally. Kinda like when you turn on a lamp, and some lamps
make a low humming sound.
