Computer Speaker Problems

Hello all,

My roommate is experiencing an issue with his Klipsch Computer Speakers Whenever he turns up the volume, they crackle. They reach the volume and sound ok at whatever volume, but when he turns it up, the music dies out momentarily and you hear a nasty bit of crackle and fuzz.

Any ideas?

It sounds like he has dust in the volume control. My JBLs do that, too. If you mute the output and crank the knob up and down, it helps. Beyond that, I don't know what to do. On an amplifier, you'd clean the contacts, but computer speakers don't lend themselves to maintenance.

Problem almost fixed, it definitely reduced the crackle a good bit, but not all the way. Thanks again
