Increase the volume on your computer or other sound source.System sounds “tinny,”too much treble. Make sure right (R) and left (L) speakers are on the correct sides of your computer monitor. Check the L and R markings on the speaker cord behind each speaker. Make sure Bass Compensation control on the Acoustimass module is not turned fullycounterclockwise.One satellite speakerdoes not play or soundsdistorted. Check all connections between the satellite speakers, control pod, sound source and theAcoustimass module. Make sure all plugs are fully inserted into the jacks on the module.
