Question about Sony SA-W305 Subwoofer

Terrible distortion from Sony Dav-x10 2.1 subwoofer

I just bought this system barely used from ebay. Seems to work great except the subwoofer gives a terrible buzzing sound whenever the soundtrack gets bass heavy. I haven't found any complaints online and i am wondering if it's just broken. If so, can I fix the problem without making a beef on ebay?

SOURCE: Regarding Sony SA-WM250 Subwoofer

There is probably a bad solder joint or loose wire inside of the sub box. If you can, unplug the sub, take the screws out and remove the back to inspect the circuit board. A clean solder joint is pointed and shiny, with the solder evenly distributed in the hole. Also check to see if any plugs are loose. Plug in the audio input and then the power, but be very carefull not to touch anything inside the box while the cord is plugged in!! Play some bass at moderate volume so there is pretty constant sound. Now, take a screwdriver with an insulated handle and gently tap around on the connectors and circuit board. Tap a little harder if nothing happens, also tap in different areas to try to force the sound to cut out. You can try to locate where the bad connection may be by tapping lightly and zeroing in on the location. When and if you find the problem, you will need to solder the connection with a soldering iron. If you don't have a friend to help, try a local electronics store. Good luck!

SOURCE: can i hook up my SA-WM20 subwoofer to my sony

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.

SOURCE: why is the subwoofer making a buzzing sound? Is there a solution?

I have had the same problem with my Sony sub. It sounds like it is picking up electrical noise and would not go into standby when the reciever was off. I rerouted my wires and changed to a much higher quality wire. I was using a very low quality stranded copper with thin insulation to start with.

SOURCE: the subwoofer just quit working

if the light still comes on then the fuse is still good....

a possiblity exists that either the amplifier or the actual speaker itself went bad....if you like you can dissasemble the the subwoofer to access the insides....a simple test....if you connect the driver to another amp (any amp will do as this is just a test) and it makes sound then chances are your amp is bad or just a loose connection.

Hi all, I hope someone out there can help me. Recently bought a new Samsung 46" LCD, I also have a Samsung BluRay player and HD Recorder in one, also have a PS3 and finally the Sony DAV-IS10. ...


It's unclear where the sound is emanating or where it is lost in this scenario or even the type of connection you're using to carry it.

It almost sounds like you're using the TV for sound or it's in the audio path. The sound from any high end source should be processed by the SONY DAV as close to its original device as possible and not unnecessarily patched through the TV.

The TV only NEEDS Video. High-end Audio is wasted on it.

The symptom sounds suspiciously like a loss of data from the source to the Sony DAV.

Please clarify or establish that this does or does not happen without using the remote. Sometimes remote commands are heeded by unintended devices. Try to Pause/Play sequence using front panel buttons on the unidentified Samsung BluRay to eliminate that possibility.

Observe the indicators on the Sony for any clues when the problem occurs.

You're not likely to find a non-boxed-set control center amp that can safely drive 3-ohm speakers like yours.

HTIB's aren't meant to mix and match with anything. Proprietary speaker connections instead of stripped bare wire are a tip-off.

If you really like the speakers you could troll the auction sites for a new central unit.

If the subwoofer and other speakers were included with the system, THAT is what they're designed for. Mixing and matching with other products is usually discouraged if not forbidden.

http://audio.manualsonline.com/search.html?q=Sony+DAV-S500

If the problem returns with connection of the sub it may be defective or on its way out. Internal damage to the voice coil from being overdriven could have melted or worn through the insulation and it would cause intermittent undesired electrical contact or load variation under certain conditions, like high volumes.

If your speaker level settings are unusually boosted for the sub you may be overdriving it.

When I plug my headphones they don't work. Sound still comes from the speakers except the subwoofer.


It sounds like you're not plugging it in far enough. Headphone jacks have a mechanical interlock that disconnects the speakers when the jack is seated all the way.
