SOURCE: Internal damage to Mirage BPSS-210 Subwoofer amp

Something getting hot probably means something shorted out. You probably know that since you replaced the fuses already... . Can you give me some idea of what you do and do not know about electronics? Then I will say fewer dumb things. . When troubleshooting any electronic device, especially amps, open it up and look at the circuit board. Look for burned board and components. Then test to see if the burned/blown component had reason to blow (it probably did). . Often a shorted transistor runs too much current through some other component and the other component blows up. . Another cause, less common, is a shorted cap. . Look at the schematics if you have them, if not, you may have to create one to make sense of it. . Or take it to a shop where somebody does this all the time. The only one here went belly up in the last 12 months... . . About the pots . Try blowing out the pots which are popping with some tuner cleaner. Use with caution, and always with everything turned off and power cords unplugged. . Pots do not usually make popping noises unless they are very old or live in a very dusty place... . I found the manual, but no schematics... http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:9Doi39-AcW0J:www.miragespeakers.com/images/download/374.aspx+Mirage+BPSS-210+schematic&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjBKgLSTb8wp5SRWIOWd-gE0INdBXbfz5QDNJ_3esye4_R2Q9aKba8cEePSWQWOebeXB9zXnJSelIel2bLSR5q6KExe8MVjOk1zqFKk4K-ruti_797yf1Ig3CIcUNjE49jx8DAr&sig=AHIEtbS6udedt_o6GqL7ALPunU0v3vMvuw . You might be able to get better, more exacting help on the Mirage Forum... http://community.miragespeakers.com/forums/ But maybe not, since the Subwoofer section gets less than one post per month, and the much busier Technical Questions section only has 23 in the last 12 months.

SOURCE: My Mirage S10 subwoofer

More diagnosis first. We can't assume the source is squawking bass to this thing and you don't mention that you know that to be the case. IS it? The problem could be up the food chain.

We also don't know if you're feeding it Speaker Level or Line Level.

Prove the subwoofer amp is dead or alive by jacking in any source you have that has an RCA output (Tape Out on your unnamed source, CD, TV, etc). Turn the sub volume down to minimum to start as most RCA outputs are at maximum volume. Try that to assess the amp's health. Still dead? Get it worked on.

OmniS10 does not work


Mine has issue with the sub input that runs from the receiver sub output. So I don't have the LFE effect. I have to use the secondary hookup which is:
-run your front speaker wires from the receiver into the input. Then run wires out back to your front speakers.
Is your completely dead period? Or is the light coming on? If its dead, it may be a fuse or the power supply has failed....if the light comes on. Try the secondary hookup. Make sure both your reciever and the sub are unplugged. Plug them back in after you have hooked everything up..

Cant operate awa ht228 without remote control, which is not working, would another awa remote work, cheers dave.


I would imagine a similar remote from the same maker would share some common functions and 'language' unless AWA is NOT the Original Equipment Manuafacturer of both products.

Try these guys for a direct replacement:

Or eBay. Search the model number and 'remote'.

Can i hook up my SA-WM20 subwoofer to my sony DAV-S500 home theater


As long as your sony reciever has a sub out connection you should be able too. This powered sub you have has a rca sub input which should coincide with the receivers rca sub out.

How did you connect it to your receiver?

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.

Here's how you hook them up:

- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'

That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....
