I think I just blew my speakers

    My TV tuner has a tendancy to set my volume to maximum when it starts up. Well, my speakers were set to a high (potential) volume and I had a second or two it as I turned on my tuner.

    Now my speakers seem to not want to play certain high notes. I plugged in my headphones to the speaker output of my sound card and can still hear the missing notes.

    Is it time for me to get a new sound system?

    How do you go about plugging head phones into speakers?

    Hi Rockn, I think you misread my post. I typed "speaker output".

    You have probably blown the sound card or have overdriven it. If your tuner has any amplification going into your sound card you have probably popped it. Sorry I misread that....I'm like whaaaat?

    I'm afraid there's another confusion, and this time it's my fault. When I said I "can still hear the missing notes", I meant that I can hear everything on my headphones, implying that the soundcard itself is okay. Only the speakers aren't playing the notes.
