I bought a pair of Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 speakers off a friend about a year ago. I had issues with channel imbalance, a scratchy volume POT and ultra-sensitivity of the volume knob. Well, I took the little controller on the bottom of the right speaker off, opened it up and was generous with the Deoxit on both the volume and and subwoofer POTs. The channel imbalance, and scratchiness is gone. And the volume knob is far less sensitive. But it's still pretty sensitive. When using powered speakers on my computer I tend to crank the computer volume to 100% and use the volume knob on the speakers to control the volume. Listening to a song with ReplayGain anything over the 9 o'clock position on the volume knob is loud enough for people in other rooms to tell me to turn the volume down. Is this normal for these speakers? I can turn the volume down on the PC to get better controls, but I have never had to do this with any other computer speakers.
Sorry for this being my first post and if this has come up a lot, I couldn't find much info online. I bought my pro media 2.1 speakers in the early 2000's and recently it stopped working. I took the back off and took a look around the board after it stopped working. The speakers would turn on for a second, then turn off. I would hear a click after the speakers would turn off. I traced the problem to the position C118 transistor. At least I think it's a transistor. Anyhow it's blown and blackened. I found one post online saying it may just be a noise filter or something and it could be safe to just remove it and not use it, but I don't want to do so, and further damage the circuit board. If anyone could help me out, i would bee forever grateful. Also, sorry if this post is a wall of text as i am posting this from my phone. Edit: if this post is in the wrong forum, mods please feel free to move this.
