New Swan speakers have a weird sound.. help?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not really brand new, but refurbished.

I bought a pair of Swan D1080-IV from myav.com.au and they had finally arrived today.


Played music for a few minutes and noticed that the right speaker made this shaky kind of noise, like a high treble kind of noise, more noticeable at higher volume I'm sure there is a word for this but i am not too sure what you would call it..

The main speaker with the volume, treble and bass knobs dose not have this sound issue at all.

I have tried playing around with how much bass treble, double checked all connections and tried playing some music on my ipod insted of my computer and i am still getting the same noise, I know it may seem like something that can't be fixed but anyone here know what i could possibly try to fix the bad noise coming from the speaker?

Sent a message to myav. awaiting a reply.

I am going to make a couple of assumptions.

Assumption 1 : It really is the speaker that is messed up, and not something related to software or the crossovers.

Assumption 2: I am going to assume that when you pick up and shake your speaker, you do not hear rattling sounds.

Before you do anything, call customer service and try and have them fix it.

Here is what you can do.

Go get some fun tack or blue tack (some type of plastic putty that does not stain surfaces). Then open up your speakers and take the woofer out. Make a spaghetti strand size string of blue tack and lay it around the hole on the speaker cabinet where the woofer should go. Do this for both speakers.

The idea is that the seal around your woofer might not be sealed for some reason and you are using the blue take to ensure a nice air tight seal.

Then get the blue tack again and make 8 small balls and stick them between your speaker and your table (4 balls per speaker). This will eliminate the potential of your speaker vibrating on your table.

sounds like you need to contact myav.com and have them replace the defective speakers you open them up and start messing with them you are going to be out of luck on warranty / returns/exchange.
