KEF PSW2000 subwoofer has power but no sound

My kef psw2000 has power but no sound. It is connected to TEAC AG-L800
amplifier. I have tried the test tone on the amp, everything works but the sub.
Is there any way to test the sub, without using the amp

    I have the same problem with the same speaker, currently waiting for a reply from KEF support, perhaps we could keep each other informed of any progress.

    My KEF PSW2000 is receiving power but makes a buzzing sound when power is applies [ even when the source cable is not plugged in.This problem used to be intermittent but now I can't get a thing out of the wooofer.

To test a speaker you can hook up a batterie any where from AAA AA C D or a 9 volt batterie if the speaker makes a tone then it is fine and your problem is else where

Will a Pyle PT530A 350watt receiver work with a pair of 4ohm 200wattRMS per speaker


Yes they will, but alway be careful with audio gear.
There are 30 watt speakers that can handle peaks of 500 watts for a short time. There are also 500 watt speakers I can "kill" with a peak less than 500 watt.
Most amplifier manufactures like to boost about the power an amplifier can deliver and their speakers can handle. But as long as they don't tell how long the speaker can handle the power and at what frequencies the value does not say anything.
Whit high power amplifiers, never switch over while the volume if at maximum.
You know what I mean. I can't hear my CD player. first turn the volume to the max and then press the CD button, and the speakers will explode. Always when you preaa any button on the pre amp juts lower de volume first and you won't destroy your speakers.
My old Kef Concerto's are almost 40 years of age. 30 watt and are running on a 500 watt Yamaha amplifier for years now. And believe me my chidden know how to punish a speaker. Never any problem, nr with the speakers, nor with the amplifiers.

Most probably you have grounding problem.Check for bodycar ground bolt if there is any rust or dirt.If your Amp restricting voltage to 6.5 you wouldn't have 12 V on the battery terminal eather,and fuse that supply power line would be blown by now.Defiinetly check ground,as you described problem above that what sounds is like

Hi! I have a Jensen XA2150 Amplifier, from the speaker output I have connected a Subwoofer Sony 10 inch 1100W. Tha'ts gave me a nice bass sound, but now it's death! The amplifier have a 25A fuse,...


Have you checked the fuses inside the amp?Unscrew the cover and with the amp sitting on its back,remove the cover.You have 2-4 fuses,old round type,in there.

Lights up no sound


Disconnect your subwoofer wiring from the Amplifier, and use a multi-meter to check for resistance, or an open line. The subwoofer should have resistance. If not, check the wiring inside your box. If the wiring checks out, replace the subwoofer. Also, check your RCA connection from the Head unit to the Amp.

NO BASS!!


1) Check the Subwoofer for continuity - At the subwoofer, one at a time, test the terminals for Continuity using your Digital Multi-Meter; if your DMM doesn't have a Continuity test, use the Resistance, or Ohms, test and check for Resistance in the Subwoofer Coil (be sure to disconnect the subwoofer wiring before performing these tests).
2) If they test out good, hook the wires back up and test the terminals at the terminal cup or at the Amp hookup if you didn’t use a terminal, don't hook it up to the amp yet. Sometimes the wiring inside the box can be a problem if it has come loose, or isn't making a great connection.
3) If you have a Sub or multiple Subs with Dual Voice Coils, or multiple Subs with Single Voice Coils, make sure your wiring is correct by checking here:
http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp
4) Make sure there are no Hi-Pass filters, crossovers, or multi Channel switches enabled.
5) Replace your RCA cable/s with known working RCA cable/s from the Source/Head Unit to the Amplifier/s.
6) Check your Head Unit settings; make sure the Bass is turned up and/or the Subwoofer setting is turned On.
7) If you are still getting no or low output, try plugging in an MP3 player or CD player using a headphone to RCA adaptor and check for sound output. If there is still no or low output, your Amplifier outputs are probably burned out.

I have an alpine MRP-500 amp that used to work great with my 2 10" Type-R subwoofers. Out of nowhere the sound just stopped working and still will not. I had the amp and subs tested and the guy said it was...


  • make sure the subwoofer level is up on the head unit.
  • Make sure the RCA cables are good.
  • Make sure the remote wire is connected and has 12v+ when the head unit is on.
If the remote wire is not turning on the amp, its not going to work. To hot wire it to see if thats the problem, just run 12v+ to the remote jack. That will turn on the amp.

Let our Experts solve your "My amp lights up like normal then protection light red comes on and turns the amp off resets and tries again. What would be my course of action


disconnect all wires (including RCAs)
reconnect positive, ground, and remote.
Turn amplifier (car) on.
If it goes into protect mode again - there is an internal fault that requires professional repair.
If the amplifier idles as normal - turn off the car. Plug in RCAs & re-try
Failure? - replace RCAs as they may be pinched or faulty.

Lastly if all connections are made and amplifier idles without going into protection - you need to concentrate on your load (subwoofers).
Be sure they are wired properly into a resistance that amplifier is rated.
The lowest impedence that amplifier is rated is 2ohm.
That is possible with (2) 4 ohm subwoofers wired in parallel....
(4) 8 ohm subwoofers wires in parallel...
(1) Quad 1 ohm subwoofer...
or (1) Dual 4 ohm voicecoil subwoofer.

Any other combination will result in an impedence too low for your amplifier.

Next:
Using an OhmMeter (Digital multimeter set to Ohms 20) test each voicecoil against its advertised resistance. It should be CLOSE +/- .5 Ohms.

Any other reading means the voicecoil is blown.

Help please


Check your power cable, for bad connections.
Make sure voltage dont drop below 10.8v.

No power output


Set the meter to AC volts and measure the AC voltage on the RCA cables where they plug into the amplifier. The black meter leat will go on the shield ground of the RCA cable. The red lead on the center conductor. You may have to turn the volume up to get a reading on the meter. At high volume, you should read at least one volt but the actual voltage will vary due to the audio signal. If you get no voltage on the RCAs, measure the AC voltage on the input to the LOC. Let me know what you find.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.


here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
