Question about JBL Audio Players & Recorders
My Basswave subwoofer recently stopped functioning correctly. It will turn on, but the sound is so quiet that it can only be heard if I turn off all the other speakers and put my ear right next to it. It was a gradual process, and it just started getting quieter and quieter until it got to this point..I think one (or more) of the electrical components went out (a capacitor or something), but I'm not skilled enough to do all the necessary tests. I do have some electronics experience though, and could fix it if I knew what to replace. Please help. The service manual can be found here: http://www.diysubwoofers.org/projects/other/basswave/BASSWAVE.pdf Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.

Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)

You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.

SOURCE: power sub plate amp replacement
Why not try to find a used working similar model sub instead of replacing the amp? any amp different than the one built in will provide a sligtly different sound.
