I have a pair of creative 2.1 speakers, which developed some problem with the 3.5 mm pin. So I chopped it off, and soldered my own. Now, whenever there is a power loss, and the UPS picks up the slack, I hear static from the left speaker, and good audio, w/o static from the right. Decreasing the volume from the remote, decreases the volume, so the static can be clearly heard.
But, exchanging the Left/Right channel pins at the back of the sub-woofer, doesn't do the exact opposite. I mean, the sound and static does get exchanged between channels, but decreasing the volume on the remote down to zero, and you can hear some leakage audio from the right channel, which was'nt coming in thhe prev test config. Weird?
Have I improperly soldered the 3.5 mm jack? Are there different qualities/ratings for the same dimension audio jacks? I live in a semi-rural place, So, giving exact specifications wont help, because I wont be able to procure it, but worth a shot.
