Question about JBL Simply Cinema Satellite Speaker (Each)
I recently moved and my 10 year old JBL Sumply Cinema powered subwoofer wont work now. There is no way to access it beyond the remote which is also not working. It worked before I moved it and it hasnt been dropped. I can hear bass through it but it sounds muted. I dont know what to do. Its a great stereo but maybe its time to upgrade.....
if you do not have the digital hook up from the tv to the reciever
then you will not get the subwoofer sounds or the dolby digital sounds
if you don't have this on your tv then just turn off the dolby digital when watching the tv , and you should be able to hear the subwoofer thru the virtual surround sound
hope this info is worth a fixya and if you need other help then just ask me and
i'll be glad to help

SOURCE: Subwoofer Bass Level Problems
What is your sub stood on? If it is on a piece of furniture then this could be the problem. Bass frequencies travel further than higher frequencies due to their longer wavelength and will also be transmitted through any solid objects the speaker is in contact with. The solution is to mount your sub on a piece of foam to provide some damping.
Also if your sub has a port (a hole) on the back or side this needs to have a good 3 or 4 inches clearance from nearby walls or panels.
Finally the speaker cone itself needs to have a clear path to push sound energy into the room, if this path is blocked by furniture (some people like to hide them under tables) then it may make that furniture vibrate.

You need to lower the bass from the sub woofer bass knob. If u have any sound system, switched on with an amplifier(built-in or external) and if u keep it idle by not playing any media files, it will make noise which is primarily due to amplifier in the sound device.

Make sure the subwoofer is set to low frequency, make sure subwoofer and bass are enabled on the headdeck. Make sure the gain is turned up on the amp, make sure the rcas haven't come out of the back of the head deck.
