I have a pair of the RT1000I speakers and one of them all of a sudden started making this obnoxious cycling "grunt" type noise. Its about like every second...grunt...grunt...grunt. It must be in the amp because I get speaker sound but no sub sound. Does this mean the amp is blown?

Re: Crazy cycling noise
A quick test, change the speaker wires between the speakers, if the sound goes over to the other speaker the problem is in the amp. But if the problem stays with the same speaker tower the problem will be in one of the speakers in the tower. since you said you get no sub sound I suspect ithe problem is not the amp, but the sub speaker itself

Hi Jerry, Are you using this method to pair your device?
The Bluetooth-enabled device that you wish to stream audio to your speaker system must
fi rst be paired to the speaker. The process is simple, and in most cases the pairing process
needs to be done only once.
To pair your Bluetooth-enabled device with the speaker:
1. Make sure your device's Bluetooth is turned on. See the wireless and/or network settings
menu on your device to check.
2. If the speaker isn't already on, press the On-Off button to turn it on. You will hear a beep
to indicate the speaker is turned on. The indicator light on the back of the speaker starts
fl ashing blue.
3. Press and hold for 3 seconds the Pair button to enter pairing mode. You will hear 2 beeps
to indicate pairing mode is entered. The indicator on the back of the speaker starts blinking
4. Open the Bluetooth settings menu on your device. Select "AR SPEAKER" from the list of
devices available (you might have to scan for devices). If your device asks for a password,
5. A confirmation screen will appear on your device once the speaker and the device are
successfully paired. The blue indicator turns solid blue to indicate successful connection.
The speaker is now ready for you to stream audio from your device.
Switch on your amp, keep its volue down to extreme low, and listen if there is still hum through the left channel or not. If still there is hum, the left side power amplifier section inside the amp;ifier is faulty. If htere is no hum at this state, hum enters thorugh the audio input terminal, and the input wires must be checked for open sheild connection. OK.
This would be burnt out voice coils. This takes some special tools and material to rebuild them. etech.com or ebay or amazon may have the things you need to rebuild it. It would likely come with instructions as well but there are how stuff works videos and maybe youtube vids as well to watch to see how it's done.
the volume on the speakers are too high. try to put make the speakers the master volume(whatever device you plug in into your speakers make that device's volume go all the way up and then adjust the volume on the speakers to what ever volume you desire.had the same problem with my computer speakers
If these speakers are two or three way speakers, it is possible that the tweeter(s) are blown in them.
Try and remove cover to check.
If the sound is not distorting, but just flat and muddy its the tweeters.
Put the other ones on this channel, to make sure it is not the amp.
If you wire the speakers as a pair in parallel; (For two 4ohms car speakers)
1/R=1/4 + 1/4
R=2 ohms (the resistance value you'll get) (don't even think of trying it!)
R=8 ohms (this mostly fits to home amplifiers, however, they provide 6ohms as well)
I recommend that you use reasonable 8ohms speakers for the home theater amplifier you have. Despite the fact that the impedance value fits to 8ohms when you wire two car speakers as a pair in serial, this type of connection will tire your amp as well as the capacitors of the car speakers. Furthermore, you can get unwanted peak sounds from car speakers.
