Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Purchased a polk audio psw250 powered home subwoofer(used).The owner stated that It would not power on,so I figured It was a fuse.Got It home and took the amp off the box and sure enough the fuse was blown.Went to radio shack and purchased the same size fuse(1 amp 250v)In both the fast blow and the slow blow type and each time I plug It In It blows each type.The sub Is In really great shape and would like to fix It but I figure This Is more trouble then Its worth.Can anybody change my mind here?

Have jvc rx-2020v receiver with mono rca out for sub and trying to hook it up with polk audio rm 1000 w sub woofer with +/- terminals for both left ane right channels plus blue terminal(?). How to?


Your Polk Audio subwoofer is a passive sub and your JVC mono output is for connection to a powered sub. If the JVC does not have an amplified output for a passive sub, you'll either need to get an amplified sub, a different receiver, or buy a dedicated mono subwoofer amplifier.

My subwoofer will not work with my receiver.


I had a similar problem where the subwoofer was working during calibration but not on TV viewing. Here is what I found:
  • That some listening/surround modes did not support the subwoofer.
  • Some receivers only support subwoofer with digital inputs.
  • Might also want to double check the speaker config and make sure it's has the subwoofer enabled.
  • I assume you're using the sub-pre-out to drive the powered subwoofer.
  • Have your tried a CD or FM radio station to see if you're getting the sub output from these sources?

You can prove the sub pre-output works by running an RCA cable from it to the input of a tape deck, TV or any other device that accepts Line In and will either display it or play it. Test it on VERY LOW volume at the receiving device.

Sounds like you popped the voice coils in the speakers when you overloaded the old receiver. The system shut down to protect the speakers, but it didn't shut down in time.

Time for new speakers or to have the old ones re-coned.

Good luck
