View Full Version : Problems with static coming from my speaker

12-18-2011, 10:45 AM

I installed the PC-L with the simplest wiring possible (page 9 of the manual), and everything seems to be working well except that I have static crackling coming out of my speakers. Anyone else have that problem? Any ideas on a fix?

If it's a regal speaker I'd try a different one first and see if that is the issue. The regals can be quite delicate, and have been known to break on people for no apparent reason.

It's the premium one from TCSS: http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Premium-Speaker--P77.aspx

Ugh, I hope I didn't break it somehow ><

Make sure you have no exposed solder or metal from the speaker wires rubbing on the inside of your hilt. Mine was doing that till i hot glued over the contacts on the board and heat shrinked everything better.

It's the speaker.

Well, I did use shrink tube at the PC-L board, and just checked all the solder joints... everything looks pretty clean. Going to try hooking the speaker up to an oscillator circuit and mess with it some. As it looks now, I think Sun is right... seems to be the speaker. bah.

Ah Scott, you're right... it is a Regal. 8-ohm, 1W.
