    I'm going to use my old (but VERY unused) Orion XTR 12 - (dual voice coil) which will give me the option of 8 Ohms (connected in series) or (close to) 2 Ohms (in parallel)
    R series=R1 R2, R parallel = 1/ 1/R1 1/R2 (a calculator has this function)

    The original woofer (although smoked,) measures 6.5 Ohms, so an 8 Ohm woofer is a safe bet. Now, if I only knew HOW to get the old Paradigm woofer OUT of this box... It's pretty glued in there...

How to Replace a paradigm monitor 9 v6 driver


Are you having trouble removing the driver? Just remove it and replace, keeping track of where the positive (red) terminal is and what cable is connected there. The part number should be printed on the back of the magnet.

I have a paradigm ps 1000.it powers on fine when i plug in the rca cable into thoe back of the sub into the low level input it humms supper loud. i tested my cable and used another one same thing. could...


It sounds like it has bad ground on the RCA input assembly, you should Ohm out the ground of the RCA jacks to see if they are all connected.
How about the sender side (the amplifier) ground?

Ps-1200-A sub woofer will not power up


Probably a blown fuse. If there's not one on the face of the amp, pull the amp and check for one next to the power cable.

Our ten year old paradigm ps 1200 subwoofer does not power up, although it is plugged in and properly connected to the receiver. Why is this? Is it a lost cause?


Disconnect the power, pull the amplifier out by undoing the screws that hold it in.
When you pull it out, look closely towards the top there is a little 1.8A fuse. It probably has blown.
Replace that and you should be back in business.

How long should a powered sub woofer last? It's on 24/7, but is not abused with long, loud playing. Mostly regular TV.I have a Paradigm PS1000, about 10-12 years old.


There's no way of telling really! Even if something did go wrong there's no reason to say it couldn't be fixed very cheaply. It could last another 10 years or it could go wrong in the next few hours.
I will say one thing after 12 years of service and never off you certainly have had your monies worth!

I have a ipod i would like to connect to my PS Series but i do not know how


Don't bother. A subwoofer will only reproduce the rumble (deep bass) end of the spectrum. You would still need other (full range) speakers for the rest of the frequencies.

But, if you must - get an adapter to convert the Ipod's headphone output to an RCA pair and jack it into the sub's inputs.

I have PS-1000 and same problem. It looks like power transformer got partially shot (reads 11 V AC instead of 56)
I just don't know if it's all the problem or there is something else. And where I can find replacement transformer?
