Crackling Speakers
Hokay, I have a question, but I'm putting it in fixes because it's a fix I'm looking for ...

Whilst I don't have this problem at the moment, there have been a number of times in the past that my really [[email protected]][email protected][/email] set of PC speakers have given off what can only be described as a crackling sound ... I believe the correct reason for it is that dust has gotten into the mechanism of the speakers itself, and is interfering with the transmission of the sound through the apparatus ...

However I was wondering, just as an industry-standard ... does anybody know of a reasonably effective way of cleaning speakers ?

You'd take a mouse ball out and remove the crud from the rollers to improve its performance for example ... is that type of mentality ever applicable to speakers d'ya reck ? Or is it easier to just turf 'em and get a new set ??

Cheers !!

How expensive were they? I can only assume all your connections are solid etc - any other electronics in the immediate area?
Well I have 2 sets of PC speakers connected one to each PC (I have 2 PC's under my desk - one on the left, one on the right).

It's the older set of speakers which have been causing the problem, but I've been loathe to get rid of them because a) they were a gift, and b) they are surround-speakers, so I can put them all around me and really immerse myself in whatever I feel like playing ...

... so there is some wiring in the area (cabling from the PC's), but nothing major - I have more cabling at work under my desk ...

They must be at LEAST *muffled coughing* 4 years old now ...
