Old Audioengine A5 massive pops, crackle - Page 3

I'm going to pull the entire thing apart this weekend and document exactly what I'm changing over in order to fix them.

I had a quick look at the circuit boards and some of them have been seals on the back with plastic/protector so it is going to be hard to get to if they're covering the parts with the issues.

At first glance all the connectors and wires look good. No oxidisation on them or all connected well so I have to agree with others here that it may be the capacitors on the boards.

Will let you know how I go and how it costs to repair DIY style.

I like these speakers and not going to give them up this easily.

Hi Peter. I have a same problem (blowing mic sound) in my right speaker. Are you repair your speaker? If you done, can you tell me how?

Note: sory for grammer. English is my third language

Edit 2. Oh, I think david is not here. He has one post in 2013. So everyone, any updates in this problem?

I had a pair of A5's - did the exact same thing. Got zero help from Audioengine other standard boilerplate email suggesting I move the speakers, check wiring etc.

 

Bought a second pair - 2 years later - exact same thing. And yet they claim there isn't an "issue."

 

Shame - they would do a better job of building their brand by offering genuine, thoughtful and considered solutions to what is clearly a real issue with their flagship product - as proven by comments on this board and several other where posters have the same "non-existent" issue.

 

In this modern age of social media and transparent brand management, all brands, need to do a better job to stay relevant in consumers minds.

Howdy Everyone,

Looks like I get to join the snap crackle pop and blow into the mic sound club. This really sucks. My previous monitors lasted over 10 years and these were only used a few times a week for less than 5 years and now they are toast. I've got a 20+ year old Adcom amp sitting here that will power a new pair of non powered monitors or desktop speakers fairly soon. I really liked my Audio Engine speakers when they worked but they won't be getting any repeat business from me.
