Today, I bought a pair of new speakers for my comp. I forgot I had installed various volume enhancing programs and also maxed out all sound settings. I connected the new speakers and played some music. The sound destroyed them. FML

Ouch! I was DJ at party and went out for a drink for a few seconds. Someone turned the volume up fully on the computer I used for music. When I ran back, all of my amplifiers had glowing input clipping and peak LEDs on them. Now I always use a compressor/limiter for protection. DC voltages will burn speakers up really fast!

Idiot. Volume on ZERO when you hit play after wiring something new up, THEN turn it up. Common sense.

I read sneakers instead of speakers and thought that OP was insane or something :S

HAHA, maybe you should be more careful.

Haha, I did that once. It was epic. I laughed for hours, even while my parents were yelling at me for wasting their money.
