Corsair SP2200 Crackling Fix (including easy less permanent fix)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Woke up today to find my Left SP2000 speaker crackling at mid volumes, I had a quick google around and found a fixing guide (link below), please, before you butcher your speakers here is a quote from the site:

My analysis leads me into thinking that the issue is an excessively high impedance after the potentiometer. This is because

-At zero volume, crackling is not present since the line is tied to ground
-At max volume, crackling is not present or almost nonexistent since the line is tied to the audio source
-At mid volume, where the impedance is the highest, crackling is also at its peak.

Please confirm that your speakers exhibit the same behavior, else they could have an entirely different issue.

Now, I definitely have this problem, it's only been 10 minutes since it happened and I'm already up the wall that I have to dismantle my speaker. I have found an even quicker fix:

-Put volume to 100% on speakers
-Put volume to X% on PC
- Enjoy crackle free until it starts to affect high/low ranges too!

For now, this will have to do, as I don't have a soldering kit. I really aught to get one as I used to re-wire Guitars and laptop DC Jack's almost all the time.

I hope this helps someone with a similar issue! I also apologise if this is a re-post, I had a look around OCN and couldn't find anything!

Regards,

Roxborough
