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

Can I connect my floorstanders to wharfedale sw150 without any external amplifier, If so, how ?

What 'floorstanders'?

Its internal amp is for its own subwoofer ONLY, but if you use your own amp's full-range speaker-level outputs to feed two chanels entering the sub you can tag the 'floorstanders' onto the sub's speaker terminals as speaker wire extenders. Your amp will be powering the floor units.

I'd keep the sub separate and feed it LFE only if it was mine.

The cooling fins on my Wharfedale SW250 sub woofer are always quite warm, even when I have not used it for a couple of days. Is this Normal?

Sounds like it is on standby all the time. It only powers up fully when detecting an audio signal but will otherwise be in constant low power mode when not used.

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.

How do I hook it up to my Surround sound reciever?

Hooking up a subwoofer is dependent upon what hookups are availble on the receiver and subwoofer. Does your receiver have a specific subwoofer output? If so, is it set of speaker-wire terminals, or is it an RCA jack? The Wharfedale can accomodate either one of these as an input. There are four speaker posts on the back of the subwoofer, and there is a single RCA jack input.

Wharfedale 10inch cude subwoofer that has a feedback hum when con

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 PowerCube PC-12 Subwoofer Problem

ok , what your going to need to do is give me the numbers on the amp IC's , and i will see if they are available , but first you will need to see if the pre amp transistor is failing , to do this leave the power off and unplug from the wall then with a digital multi meter on diode check , check to see if the emitter to base reads about 680- 700 , if it does then its ok but i would replace that anyway because it could be the reason the amp is not amplifying correctly , sometimes they don't act up untill power is applied , then also replace any resistors in line with the input line that do not read thier values( if you need help identifing them let me know and i upoad the codes for them) and also the electrolitic capacitors on the transistor line to the amp
once you have completed these steps let me know if there is a change
you can cross reference you transistor here also maybe the power amp

JVC Subwoofer problem.

You may have a break in the wire. You can find out by slowing moving your fingers down the wire until you notice sound coming from the subwoofer. You can fix it yourself by cutting about an inch away from the break both ways. Then cuttings some of the wire off, so the copperwire is exposed. then wrap the two copperwire ends together and seal it with elections tape. or Try replacing the 60 watt subwoofer wire.

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.
