HELP!!! Please save my 10 years old Cambridge Microworks from Creative....MIC2:)


Recommended Posts

I didn't buy it 10 years ago lah, just that it's made in year 1997 :D

 

okay, first of all, the bass seems to have problem projecting itself, sounds like somebody kena chocked at the throat like that lol! Somebody said by spraying some contact cleaner at the knob would solve the problem, but I can't seem to find "contact cleaner" after searching up and down for all the hardware shops.....most electrical shops also dun carry them, can somebody help me?

 

Just now set up the 2.1 "antique" and feel the sound a bit hollow hollow one (through the 3.5mm jack of my X60 laptop, I dun have the "shoik" feeling like what I heard in Creative showroom long long time ago. Why is it so?

 

I'm still using the very thin stock cables, what would you recommend to replace them?

 

and....my hand itchy just now lah, went to dismantle the sub......so here are some close ups:

 

shall I mod it? by changing any parts? i think the sub is still very solid, just that the PCB seem a bit rusty so a bit cmi liao lah.....

what kind of "repair" you guys talking about?

 

I haven't tried contact cleaner yet (anybody know where got sell exactly?), maybe that would solve the problem....hehe.....

 

but the hollow hollow sound make me curious...is it because the living room is too big?

I would think the microworks would have problems filling the sound in a living room as it was made to be desktop speakers. Perhaps its insufficient headroom for the low frequencies to cover such a big area - hence the "hollow" sound. Bring it to a bedroom and set it up again - i owned the MWs b4 nice PC speakers :p
