With my speakers the sound is from the water hitting the top of the plastic case. The louder the music or bass, the harder the water hits the top. Hope this helps!

I have noticed a slight clicking sound with my speakers, but some slight clicking should be because of the motor that has to time the water jet with the music. If it is LOUD clicking, then consult your nearest The Source store, and they can assist you. Plus, if you purchased the Advantage Care Plan with the speakers, they will just replace them over the counter at no cost to you.

Hope this helped.

Faulty speaker to what it sounds like, if it's heard above the music volume level then yes....you should return it and get an exchange.

Make sure the cables are all snapped in tight, when I first used mine I didn't have one the cables in tight enough and got a lot of "noise". If this doesn't help I would take them back!

Can I have a seperate pair of speakers play the audio while the jets work?

Just wondering if I could hook another speaker up to these so that only the jets are working? I was thinking an aux cable connecting the other speakers with these ones.

You would need to disconnect the drivers in both units. The pump for the water gets the audio signal and uses it to push the water according to the sound signal. There is a circuit board inside the left speaker which does this. The circuit board then sends the signal to the driver inside that unit, which would be easy to disconnect since there is a computer-like connector on the board itself. However, the wires that go to the other speaker are soldered to the circuit board. The audio signal AND power is sent over a usb cable to the other speaker, so you would need to open the other speaker as well, and disconnect the driver via the little white plug inside it as well.
You would then need to split the audio signal, so that one signal goes to the water speakers, and the other line goes to the ones you want actual sound from. Hope this helps.

Yes you can, just a matter of having the proper splitter. All though i did this with my speakers to my bass speakers and it caused a funny noise when they were in use from my bass, so just a warning that it may happen. But it is do-able

These water speakers use a standard USB cable to hook up for power, so mostly they are recommended for use as computer speakers. However, some televisions support USB (some TVs only have USB for technical support and diagnostics, so check with a thumb drive ahead of time, if it reads and displays pictures, it will work for the speakers) so if a Source store had them hooked up with USB they would have known which TV supported it and which didn't. If you would like to hook these up to just a standard power outlet, The Source also sells those in multiple varieties starting at around $30 when they aren't on sale. Keep in mind that these speakers are mostly made for being close by the listener, eg. on a desk or a laptop/desktop. If you hook them up to a TV and sit further away from it, you may not get better sound quality than the built in speakers, and if you put your volume too loud on the water speakers, the sound will distort. Just a heads up.

You could try mineral oil if you know where it leaked out and can close the crack or leak spot. I think you could try baby oil if it is not to much of a heavy liquid.

its mineral oil, but if you are within warranty period, and it wasn't leakage caused by damage you should just take them in for exchange

They should work on any mp3, I phone, I pod. I use them on my wife's I Phone 5 and I Pod 5. I don't think it would really matter because they don't require an upgraded device or anything like that. They would probably work on an old Walkman (tape cassette player) if anyone still uses them! :) You would still need to connect the other wire to a USB device (laptop, computer, etc.)

Yes, as long you have a usb adapter to plug in your speakers. You need to power them up with usb.

Question

What is the power draw from USB in mA ?

Hi there. These speakers work well when connected to a laptop, but I planned on using these with a wall adapter (conversion to USB), and these speakers do not work properly. I have 2 such adapters, one is 300 mA and the other is 400 mA. The 400 works 'better' than the other but still does the same thing (music is really choppy, water barely moves). What is the required power for these speakers in milli-amps ? Thanks.

Is the sound from the second speaker supposed to work?

Sound is suppose to come from both speakers. Check your cables and ensure they are plugged in securely (they sometimes need a little forcing when they are brand new). If they are plugged in correctly, then take it back to the store WITH your ipod. They will test it in store. The 1 year default warrenty is suppose to be "over the counter" so if it doesn't work, they should just give you a new set.

Question

Dancing water speakers

I purchased the dancing water speakers for my mothers tv, after connecting them to the tv, I found that there was no sound coming out of them even though there was power. I bought the adapter cords for the sound of the tv so that it would come through the speakers. They still get no sound. What am I doing wrong. The tv is a toshiba flat screen about 4-5 years old.
