How to fix problem with my monitors

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have the M-Audio BX8a for my desktop and have them connected to my soundcard via a TRS to 3.5 mm jack. I am having an issue where if I put the volume past 70%, they will start to hum and if i don't turn them down immediately, it will hum them to explosion or something crazy and not good. I was wondering how I could fix this?

arent you having a speaker problem not monitors?

edit: hahaha i read it wrong my bad. From my experience with speakers Im assuming something is loose inside them. I had a similar problem with my asus monitor (screen) some strange humming when the volume gets loud. I think its just defective, since the m-audio has great quality. Another common mistake would be the tunning ( i think thats the word) in the sound cards software. See if you have the settings correct. Sample rate? The asus Xonar has the options of different sample rates and types of speakers. See if that helps.
