Does anyone know about this?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 laptop, and I have a preset
for high frequencies (not binaural) along the lines of
Tomatis' Sound Therapy. I created this several years
ago and was running it without any problems in previous
desktops I had, from their built-in, as well as external
speakers or ear phones.
I also ran various presets on this relatively new laptop,
but used ear phones because most were binaural, though
I also ran this high frequency preset using ear phones.
No problem at all.
Then once, I decided to run the HF preset (it reaches
16000 range) without external speakers/phones because
it wasn't binaural anyway. Within a few minutes, I
smelled something burning but could not determine where
it came from. After a few more minutes, I finally traced
it to my laptop (the right speaker was starting to make
gross clicking sounds), and quickly turned off the program.
The next day I found out I no longer have a left speaker.
And this happened a couple of days after the warranty
I strongly suspect that the HF preset was the cause
because previous to this, I've been playing a lot of
orchestral music using the laptop's speakers, from
minimal to full volume, and there was no problem at
Any ideas? Why would these speakers get busted by high
frequencies when others, internal and external, did not?
If anything, maybe this should be a warning not to run
high frequencies on internal speakers?
