4.1 speakers, I've never heard of, did you mean 5.1 (i.e. 6 speakers including the sub woofer)?
I recently picked up a set of 5.1 Logitechs for another computer that sound very nice and are highly rated. We'll see how those stand the test of time!
In the good old days of spark plugs and rotor/distributor system, when you had bad wiring and your car didn't start in a damp morning because sparks were jumping all over the place, just spray WD40 all over and inside the distributor!
No more spark jump.
I sprayed WD 40 on HV sections of PWM power supplies, HV ballasts and igniters for HMI lamps, no problem.
In the Dominican Republic we spray it on all the PC boards to prevent corrosion from saline air, no problem.
Just don't spray it on belts, magnetic heads, VTR drums, laser pickup lenses or anything that's mechanical.
Some alcohol based sprays are very conductive until they dry out, you can spray WD40 on powered equipment without fear.
Just did some reading on that application for WD40.
The manufacturer does not list electronics as an application.
Other discussion forums discourage such use because of:
1) its flammability,
2) its propensity to leave behind a film that attracts dirt over time, and
3) its propensity to attack some plastics.
There may be others as well.
I use WD40 for a lot of things, but have always feared using it on electronics. That is not to say that it cannot be used successfully, I personally would prefer to use a different product on electronics, preferably one that uses some type of alcohol to evaporate thoroughly.
4 speakers and a sub. I'm pretty sure it calls it 4.1 in the Soundblaster setup window, but I can look.
I don't know what company built them, they say "Altec Lansing" IIRC.
I just prefer to play it safe with those products. Electronics can get pretty hot, why take chances, when there are safe products to use.
I've also heard of people using synthetic rustproofing (auto undercoating) materials to clean their auto electronics/electricals. I prefer not to follow suit, but it may work for some people. I have used WD40 on carburetors in the past as a water displacement (what the WD stands for) agent but that's different.
If it works for you, great.
Hi. I have the same trouble as you. After you get of those 4 screws from the bottom, you need to get of the protection of the speakers (i used a knife ) and underneath there is 6 more screws you have to take them off and it will come out very easily. Remove the plastic cover of the volume potentiometer. Use a spay for cleaning contacts (an ex. WD-40) on the volume and turn the button back and forward 5 minutes, then let it for 1 hour to evaporate. And plug it in to power and give it a shot.
