Constant staggering buzz form speakers.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I always thought this was a hum from my hard drive or something and just ignored but I just got back from holiday and I'm reveling in having decent speakers (for a non-audiophile) over laptop built in speakers. Anyway there's this errr-errrrrrrr-er-errr-errrrr sort of buzzing coming from them. It's not the connection because when I unplug it from my laptop they still buzz, also if I move away my phone the buzz is still there. The only way I can get them to stop is turning them all the way down until they're muted or turning them off, turning up the speakers does not increase the buzzing frequency or volume.

The buzzing is constant, even if I'm listening to music it's still there. I can't here it but if there's ever a very quiet part or I turn the levels down in foobar2k then the buzzing is still there behind the music. I moved my subwoofer away from the power board everything's on and moved it around but the buzzing persists.

They're Logitech Z506's, not the best but they do their job and I knew where I could buy some without shipping. Had them for a while and I guess they've always buzzed.

Any ideas? Is there some simple way to fix it?

Help me before I go crazy axesmiley.png

As you said you get buzz without any input so there must be something wrong with amp in your speakers. I would say there is no simple way of fixing this. If you can try RMA them.

I had this problem with my z5500's. Tried a lot of things to fix them, but nothing worked. Ended up just buying new speakers.

I had a similar problem when i had a cheap power supply in my computer, does it buzz when everything else is unplugged? It could be some other electronic device interfering with it.

Hopefully not frown.gif

I don't have the box for them nor receipt so RMA doesn't look great, I'll log onto the Logitech website and see what's the go.
