View Full Version : Did anybody solve the G750 "Cracking" audio problem?

As you are probably familiar, this issue occurs randomly (sometimes not at all), and while audio is playing, every once in 5 seconds or so, the subwoofer (i think) crackles discreetly (not that loud, but loud enough to be annoying). I haven't been able to find a permanent fix.
It appears the problem is in MaxxAudio. If i turn it off in the panel, the crackling stops, but the audio is much worse on the laptop speakers. Headphones seem to be much less affected by the enhancements of the MaxxAudio app.
Any solutions? Thanks.

Does this happen only on battery?

No. It happens randomly regardless of it being on battery or on AC.

From my rather blurry electronics knowledge, it sounds like an issue with the low-pass filter that handles the subwoofer. It probably also lets frequencies that are too low for the sub to handle. This is just a thought...

No cracking here.
Using G750JH, Win 8.0, Realtek 7095 drivers (from Asus website). as a matter of fact, these drivers fixed the "crack" that occured the first time after boot a sound was played.
MaxxAudio works fine, with ROG skin.

Here is the Notebook Audio download area, and there is a newer Windows 8.1 Realtek driver Version V6.0.1.7231:

I don't know if it's pure luck, but that last audio driver actually kinda solved this cracking problem. I hope this lasts :)

Naren94, does your G56 come with the external subwoofer? Did you accidentally click the "Full Range" option for your internal speakers in the Configure section of the Sound Manager Playback for your Speakers? You want to keep the Full Range option unchecked if you are using your external subwoofer.

Did you try to find out at what frequency the over-driven Audio is occurring? You could use MaxAudio Equilizer tuning to reduce the frequency range that your G56 is resonating at at high volumes.

And, if it is your subwoofer bottoming out, you can reduce the Level to the Subwoofer, while keeping the Level for the main speakers high.
