Ok, I'm back!

Well.

After a VERY long hiatus during which I changed jobs twice and completed a very large personal project I am finally able to take a bit of time and get back to the project of working on and posting on this blog. I'm going to do my level best to try and maintain it a bit more. Sadly, the Blogger format really isn't the best choice for something like this, but since there isn't a free Forum solution available out there. this will have to do.

The thread over at ATPM continues to grow and grow, a good TEN YEARS after the original post. If that isn't a testament to the enduring popularity of the Monsoon Multimedia speakers then I don't know what is!

For those who either are still holding onto or have recently picked up a set of Monsoon speakers, I am going to attempt to be a resource for you. In the coming months I will be putting up feature articles on each of the various Monsoon speaker systems, with information sourced from all over the internet. Thanks to the magic of the Wayback Machine, I hope to be able to bring you as much information as possible about these great speakers.

Also, when possible, I will be including technical data about the speakers, including instructions on how to repair and service your Monsoons to keep them sounding great for years.

It's good to be back, and I'll see you all right here!

Good to see things are going better for you, and you decided to start up this site again.
I stumbled across the ATPM site just last week. In fact, I’m the one with the post just before yours. Therefore, I will be watching your blog.
Reading your comeback statement, and about how comments keep coming in after nearly ten years at ATPM is exactly what I was thinking. I would rather fix, or at this point, tune-up my MM1000’s since they work fine. Than buy new. I read a comment once on Amazon.com about the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1’s and that guy said he didn’t think the Klipsch speakers sounded as good as his Monsoon speakers. I think he had either the MM500’s or the MM700’s.

Welcome back.

I'm still using my MM700 system. Scratchy volume control but otherwise working fine.

Hey! I have the 14s, I just bought them, and they have the typical problems: buzzy midrange in one sattelite, operational though suspect puck, and the thing I would love to fix: an everpresent low hum in the subwoofer, which works well otherwise. What's the easy fix for the hum? Is there one?

Puck bypass? I read a lot of the ATPM and there are many opinions about the puck, which is fine in my case, for the moment, but no talk about the humming woofer. Please let me know.

I bought a set of MM500's which hum...I tried to find a replacement power transformer but Radio Shack no longer stocks such things in my town...I am thinking of buying a set of 700 speakers and may use them with a used sub from another brand unless I can get this hum fixed. The hum is speaker related as it is at a steady volume and exists even when the speakers are not plugged into the laptop and exists even when the mute is applied. The music goes away but the hum remains.

Hello,

I'm rather new at this so I'd appreciate knowing what the acronym ATPM stands for so I might follow the Monsoon thread there as well.

Thank you.

Hi. I'm not sure this site is still active. I truly hope so. I haven't been able to find other available resources. I have a set of FULLY FUNCTIONING Monsoon MM-2000 speakers without the control module. (I screwed up and discarded it when clearing old tech!) The speakers have not been used for at least 10 years!!

So I have two questions:

1) Where can I find a new control module? and...

2) Can they be functionally connected to my Macbook pro laptop which NOW replaces my long discarded PC desktop?
