Did my speakers just wig out on me?

I was listening to some mp3s on winamp. The song was playing fine, then all of the sudden it gets much louder. I did not touch the volume. Now, when I mess with the volume controls on my speakers all I get is off or the same constant volume. The only way to increase/decrease the volume is through winamp or through the windows volume controls. Anyone have an idea of what happened?


Using WinXP, SoundBlaster Live audio card and Boston Acoustics speakers

maybe the MP3 was recorded louder in part of the song?


I know some of the MP3's I have that friends burned for me are louder or softer from song to song while I am not changing the volume at all.

It sounds like the volume control on your speaker has bit the big one. Are you handy enough to disassemble the speaker enclosure and spray a little contact cleaner into the volume control?

It's not just that mp3, though. It's all of them, and any video I watch.
