    cracking sound out of external speaker

    Got a Q9n few days ago and absolutely love it. I wonder if anyone has experienced a cracking sound problem. If I enable 'click' sound for button press then there's a crackle every so often I press the button. With button sound disabled 'crackles' happen when rigtone goes off or some system sound occurs. It's quick and happens only right in the begining of the ringtone or system sound but is annoying. The problem doesn't seem to be firmware related as I already flashed the phone with 3 different ones and crackles were there each time. My H/W version is 3.2. I wonder if anyone could provide some insight on this.

    Try adjusting your sound enhancement settings until it dissappeaars. I'd guess you are clipping the speakers right now. :) -Q

    Actually both my Q9n's have a crackle sound when the sound initializes, so I know what you mean.

    DING-dong!!! Ya just rang my chimes! HA !!! Yeah, yeah . . . if that's what he is talking about, It's the nature of the beast. I get THAT too and there isn't any way to control it either . . . I've tried. It's no biggie to me but I can understand how some would find it annoying. THX, man !!! :) -Q

    it could be an issue with the shielding around the speaker causing it to crackle when there is current flowing through an adjacent circuit

    with the proper application of the foil it could work:wink:

    and I'm not perfectly sure on that; but coming from a sound technician's perspective, I've heard sounds fitting that description before when using XLR cables (for our monitor speakers) that had bad shielding

    Exactly! Never tried on a cell but plenty of other applications worked. If I ever disassemble my Nap I'll give it a go. :) -Q

    You are a wonderful community here, did you know? Thanks for all the responses, if everybody has it I may as well relax. Feel a lot better now anyway (thought I got faulty unit...)

    This was a moment of frustration I guess. :embarassed: Caused by my Q8 a year ago... Tried to change it but to no effect. Do I need to seek moderator's assistance on this?

    I know nothing about technical side of it but it looks as if speaker goes into 'sleep mode' and then there's a crackle on a 'wake up'. If you try to play any sound once then there's a crackle at the start. If you then wait 5 seconds or more and replay it then there's again a crackle. However if you replay it within 3 seconds or less there will be no crackle. So it takes for speaker like 4 seconds to go into 'sleep mode' (or whatever it is) that causes it to crack.
