Help me troubleshoot this.
So I have a set of Logitech z313 speakers that have served me pretty well. Over the last month or so, they’ve been going in and out. I thought it was a driver issue, but after deleting and reinstalling them about a dozen times, I’m ruling them out. Today, I discovered something odd. From the audio jack on the back of my computer (green 3.5mm jack), the line out goes to the subwoofer. The sub has a separate line that goes out to a male 3.5mm jack, which plugs into a…toggle? that controls the volume and splits the sound out to the desktop speakers.
When I’ve been having issues, I’ve gotten no sound at all*. But when I unplug the line to the toggle, the sub starts to output sound. So the drivers are clearly working. I did discover a small tear in the cable that goes from sub to toggle, but it doesn’t look like there’s any wire breakage there (I could be absolutely mistaken in that).
I’m guessing it’s an issue with that tear, right? Any other possibilities I should check?
*I did crank the volume all the way up to the maximum setting and played the test sounds from the diagnostics check, and heard very faint sound - so something’s coming through.
