    Same problem, on the sw32ht led lights, but no sound comes out. However I opened the back cover and discovered there is a relay (little blue box that clicks) on the circuit board. I moved it with my fingers and voilà it works now!!, intermitent though, but better than before. My guess is that after 9 years of boom boom vibration, the relay became somehow loose and it needs to be either re-soldered or replaced, I will need the service manual to do it, anyone has it?



    Please if you do send it to admichaus@hotmail.com







    Regards

Kenwood sw-35ht Replace with a kicker sub


I suppose you could, but you are talking about a driver (speaker) that was not designed for that cabinet size and amplifier used in the Kenwood, There are differences in speaker design besides power rating and impedance.

Woofer will not turn on. fuse was bad but i replaced it and still no power.


Had the same problem, no power from the sub, no light. Opened the box, fuse was bad, replaced the fuse...pop...blew again. Found out that on the bigger middle board next to the power plug there are two capacitors on either side, the inner one burned and crumbled to pieces. I called Kenwood, they said that I would have to bring it to a Electronic Service Specialist that they will give you a number to in your area...or...Ship it yourself to their East Coast Center in Virginia. I already asked if Kenwood is going to send an RMA or Shipping Label and they will not. You will be responsible for the shipping there, but they will pay for the shipping back. Kenwood's East Coast Center in Virginia's number: 757-340-1702 - Good luck

Power Light off & speaker not working


I had the same problem. The screws around the perimeter of the back plate must be unscrewed and the plate must be pried off as it is glued to the box. When replacing my fuse, 2A 5x20 GMA, it blew the fuse again. Disconnecting the second circuit board prevented the next fuse from blowing, but now the question is what is wrong with the circuit board? I cannot see any damage or shorts.

if you don't mind a large car battery (and battery charger) in your living room, it will work. Another option is to get a 12 VDC power supply, capable of sourcing 100 or more amps, but that would be too costly.
