ALC892 not working properly (crackling sound)

Recommended Posts


I’m new to the forums. So, first of all: I’m Martín, from Argentina. 19 years old.
I installed Niresh’s distro like a month ago, and I couldn’t find a working kext for this ALC892 Audio card. I either get crackling sound or no sound at all. Some kexts work better than others, but no one is really ok.
Tried MultiBeast, Slytherin and many (MANY) kexts from this forums.
This is my PC:
-AMD Phenom II x6
-AMD 6870 Sapphire (1 GB GDDR5)
I don’t use DSDT. 
This is my bootloader file in Extra folder.
<key>Legacy Logo</key>



Everything else works perfectly.
I hope you can’t help me so I have the perfect Hack Pro.

Thanks for everything!

Oh! This could be important. I noticed that (contrarily from my laptop) the lower the "Format" (sorry, I don't know the English word for this) in the MIDI configuration app, the more the sound crackles.

Same problem with a GA z77 Wifi board. using nVidia 650 Ti boost, and an ASUS screen. I fixed the crackling Audio problem by uninstalling the VoodoHDA from the pref panel.

so now there is no sound, an improvement from the volume not working properly also, but, sound does not work.

    • @riddlemeright You have not posted any pictures regarding ACPI Error, without pictures I can not debug Also you need to post your full hardware specs
    • @Douglas Dreer use ATH9KFixup.kext with Lilu.kext also you need to add -ath9485 as boot-flag in clover config
    • @tdtech959 Without any pictures of kernel panic it is really hard to debug, but anyhow have you installed whatevergreen.kext with lilu.kext   i had a weird kernel panic when my onboard graphics was turned on, I was able to select external graphics card via BIOS settings as default. are you sure if the USB is the actual problem.
    • Has anyone managed to run the atheros 9485 run on Mojave? I even managed to make it recognize, but it can not find any network.
    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
