Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
The speakers themselves do not need a specific driver.
Are there any audio drivers installed at all?
Can you hear any audio through headphones or through other speakers?
Also, can you test the Yamaha speaker system on a different computer?
Yes, if the speaker system is receiving an audio signal ok then the subwoofer is likely bad.
Changing the driver will not make any difference to the subwoofer.
Test the speaker system on another computer to confirm this.
