    Hey guys, this is my first post on a Mac and I'm loving it so far. I have a nooby question though to anyone who owns the JBL Creature Speakers II.

    Okay, for my question. I am using the JBL Creature Speakers II right now and I know that you can increase the volume in system preferences and by the keyboard, but it doesn't get loud enough. The right speakers has a (+) and (-) sign on it and the direction booklet says to gently hold my finger on the buttons in order for the sound to increase or decrease.

    I don't think it's working. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!!!

    They are touch sensitive, right?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me out, it's probably a very simple fix.

    Ive tried these speakers at the apple store and in order to increase or decrease the volume with these speakers you must tap the + or - not hold it. Every touch sensitive thing ive used has been the same way. touch sensor buttons work by capatanance (spelled it wrong) where it detects the electrical diffrence between the button an your body (IIRC). When a touch sensitive button does not work for me i always rub my hand across the tv screen or somthing to get a charge and then try it. Its gets very annoying when you are trying to cook your food but you cant put the numbers in. Also make sure your hands are dry.

    I've had creatures for quite some time. I love them. The volume control takes a little getting used to, but once you do you'll have no problems. It's a tap, not a touch and hold, though that should work too though.

    Touch and hold works for mine, as well as bouncing on them. I don't know, maybe make sure your cable is connected securely to the headphone port :confused:

    Touch and hold should work. I am doing it right now. There is maybe a 2 second delay before it works. You can also obviously tap repeatedly.
