    I have a sub woofer for a computer. First you hook it up to the computer, then the smaller sattellite speakers. the audio out jack on the back of the sub is wiggling alot, and i get no sound out of it. if i wiggle it aorund, i get some static. how do i fix this? i tried openening up the sub before, but didnt see the screws so I can open it. I just want to fix the jack. please reply soon. thnx.

    got to open it to fix it. check under any rubber bumps to see if the screws are there.

    I opened it, and the jack is the size of a cube. IDk if i could post pictures. it wigles all around, inside and out. I opened it, and found the wiggling jack (it wasnt too hard) and Im not sur ehow to fix it. I have a 3 year old computer with 2 out jacks, so i wondering if replacing it with one of those is an option. i took pictures, but i dont know how to add here.
