  •  Hey Joe (6+ / 0-)

    Season's greetings!  Hope you had a great Christmas.  Having a problem with my speakers tonight.  Gonna reboot.

    •  evening cw... (6+ / 0-)

      christmas was great, the kids showed up, food was eaten, dogs took care of anything that might have accidentally dropped off of a plate, games were played and fun was had.

      hope that your holidays are going well and those speakers get back to work shortly.

        Exhausted my tech expertise - got 'em working, but everything sounds like it's underwater.  May have to spring for new speakers.  My 8:00 am web cattle call should be interesting.

        •  i hate it when that happens... (4+ / 0-)

          there's also the possibility that it's a problem with your sound card.  have you tried plugging them into your headphone port? sometimes it's just the jack that has gone bad.  on the other hand, you've probably tried that, so, well, good luck.

        •  If this is a soundcard, possible that either Dolby (2+ / 0-)

          or some sort of effect is enabled, assuming you are listening to two or so speakers.  For example, if the output is set to 5.1 Dolby but you only have two speakers connected, they may sound faint and go in/out depending on how they are supposed to enhance the surround effect as part of a larger, six-speaker arrangement.

          Wiring polarity could be off, but that usually shows up in a different type of mismatch in the stereo effect, I believe.

          The port being used by the speakers could be an issue, too: are you using Line Out instead of a Speaker/Headphone out, perhaps?
