sizzle (no nuzzle)

O_o o_O *weird* I was listening to Smile Empty Soul’s “Bottom of a Bottle” a little while ago. I noticed when I tilted my head (I’m trying to preview my art project, but it’s printing landscape) that I could hear a sizzle sound from the speakers I’m using. AHHH!!

Background information: I’m using N’s speakers connected to my laptop. (Even more background info that’s unnecessary: First he bought a Panasonic stereo system with radio/cassette/CD playback. C owns it now. Then he bought … I think his 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound system, I’m not sure if it’s made by Yamaha. Then he bought the speakers I’m using now; they’re Harmon/Kardon “Soundsticks II” and they’re really good. Then he bought his “Darth Vader” stereo speakers made by JBL, which he’s using right now and why he’s letting me use his Harmon/Kardon.)

Considering how much of a music snob N is (“You encode your mp3s using 192 kbps?” “IPod isn’t bought for its sound quality.”) and how much research he puts into buying anything (especially speakers), I’m really surprised that I hear a sizzle in these speakers. o_o (But I’ve got him beat in my car stereo! XD I have to brag. He spends his mucho bucks on all the fancy music equipment but I get a better sound in my car than he does in his. *rocks out*)

It’s making me worry. *shifty eyes* Did I break his speakers?

I’m hoping it’s just that one song, although I heard a tiny bit of sizzle while listening to Bowling for Soup’s “Girl All the Bad Guys Want.” I mostly heard it during the chorus and random parts of “Bottom of a Bottle” though. Who knows, maybe it’s just the desk I’m using that’s vibrating? It is made of metal and glass (borrowing from AJ :D). But I put towels underneath the speakers (I’m copying N, haha), so that really shouldn’t be the problem.

Or maybe N set some equalizer settings a certain way that doesn’t suit the song. He listens to pop, and while I listen to pop too I listen to some rock-ish songs. I don’t even know how to adjust the equalizer if it is that. ._.

But really the oddest thing is that I could hear the sizzle better with my head tilted, and that’s how I found out about it.
