Question about Sony SA-W305 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?
Its not broken just turn the cut off frequency to level and the volume of the sub lil bit higher and it should work fine.

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!

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.

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.
