Question about JBL Simply Cinema Satellite Speaker (Each)

Open Question

Older JBL System

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.....

SOURCE: connection a JBL surround cinema speakers with sub to a Yamaha

if you do not have the digital hook up from the tv to the reciever
304c659.gif 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.

SOURCE: my subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is

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.

SOURCE: Amp is on, but sub wont produce any bass

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.

No sound output from my JBL Cinema SB400, tried Bluetooth and HDMI also optical. It was fine yesterday and I turn it on and just no sound what so ever. Can anyone help?


Does the power light come on? If not, check the power cord and power outlet on the wall. Maybe plug in a table lamp to the wall power outlet to make sure the outlet is working. If the power light is on, check the Mute button on your JBL remote control. Also check the Mute button on your TV if sound and picture go through the TV first.
We had a Harman Kardon soundbar (model SB30) made by the same company as your JBL. It worked great for a few months. Then there were a couple of funny high-pitched sounds that stopped when we turned the soundbar off and back on. Then a day or two later we truned on the soundbar and it was completely dead - no sound at all. Harmon/JBL replaced the soundbar under warranty with a refurbished one which lasted about two weeks and dies the same as the first one. Finally, they replaced the second one with a higher model (the SB35) which is still working, although it occasionally makes a rapid clicking noise for a moment here & there.

Simple question?? how do I connect my Panasonic subwoofer to my denon receiver?


I have a very similar problem with the same exact Panasonic sub. I went to Best Buy and Radio Shack looking for an adapter, and they basically told me that one does not exisit. Apparently, Panasonic designed the home theater system specifcally so that it could not work if any part of the entire system was ever seperated.

Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, pollen...you name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.
