My wharfedale sw150 subwoofer cuts out in normal viewing, any suggestions

If your Wharfedale sub is powered, it gets its input from a subwoofer output on the rear of the Sony. At a certain level, your sub is turned on and sounds just fine until the level decreases during quiet passages of music then it turns off. I believe the theory is that this approach prevents start-up "pops" but in practice it is a poor solution. I have had several subs that have acted this way. I don't know of a way to fix this short of eliminating the level-controlled turn-on circuit

My subwoofer makes a very loud shreaking sound consisting of a mixture of high and low tones (almost sounds like it is about to explode) after power has been on for about 5 minutes. I had the problem...

Did they charge you much for that 'fix'?

Though it may have become damaged in the original problem, the driver won't make loud sounds by itself in the absence of a signal. The internal amp is probably malfunctioning and it is very capable of destroying its own driver. Don't let it continue when it starts acting up.

Did it work correctly for more than 5 minutes after the driver replacement? Take it back and make them do it right this time.

I had a powered sub amp problem that the local guy couldn't fix so I just disconnected it and wired the driver directly out to a separate amp. Works fine as a passive sub.

Hiya, try a different input cable (from amp to sub) if you have make sure that is ok.

Failing that if there is an earth in the plug, try to disconnect that (earth loop) - unlikely but hey electronics.... anything possible :)

If still there with new cable, earth off etc, then the Yamaha could have a problem but find that difficult to swallow...

Let me know if helps, see any other possibilty
Best of luck

Wharfedale Subwoofer problem

Take it to the shop from where you purchased it or try to web to get further information on their service outlets in your part of thw world. The problem is not a formidable one. It seems the IC in the Subwoofer and would not take more than half an hour to solve the problem. If it is under warranty get it replaced as well as the cables. Do not try to repair this yourself unless you know something about speakers and sound systems.
