when i got the sound blasterx ae-5 my speaker is making buzzing poping sound when i keep my speakers at 100% volume is that normal??? i have to lower it to like 75% to make it go away or i got a defective unit??
i always keep it at 100% on the Onboard sound card never had this issue
Bad idea to have speakers at full volume, set the sound volume in Windows higher and control the volume with the speakers. Depending on the speakers you should not need to be over half volume with Windows being at half volume or less.
