Audio out on iMac problem

  steviemac 12:30 12 Oct 2019

On my 2011 iMac the internal speakers are fine but as soon as I connect external speakers, the audio on the external ones is badly distorted along with a loud buzz. The sound using headphones on the same audio out is perfect and the sound from the external speakers connected to my 2010 Macbook Pro or my PC is perfect. The display does change from 'internal speakers' to 'headphones' when I look at System Preferences/Sound. Any ideas appreciated.

Got it fixed - bad cable between computer & subwoofer!
