Question about JVC TH-A85 System

1 Answer

Bass speaker stops working every now and then

The bass speaker of my JVC TH-A85 system randomly stops functioning. It will shut off in the middle of a movie, or when im just watching tv or listening to radio. After a while it automatically comes back on. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?

    Nope no answer. And actually all speakers stop at the moment it happens. But since they're all connected to the bass speaker (subwoofer), i figured the problems must be in that one.

    Yes that seems to be it, the headphone mode it goes in by itself. I think i got it fixed now by blowing in it, to get dust out.

I have a Th-C50 home theater and lost my subwoofer system cord, can I use a regular s-cord to make that connection? or is it useless with out the cord?? Please help!


Hi,

Yes you can use any 2-core cable to carry the bass signal to the subwoofer. As the bass speaker cone is the largest cone in your speaker set I would recommend a good quality cable of decent gauge (thickness) to carry the bass signal.

You just need to make sure you have the right connectors for the amp and sub and make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative.

Hope this helps,

Chris

You need to take apart tthe sub woofer and check the connection to bass speaker for continuity. It sounds like an internal broken connection to speaker on sub woofer unit.

SubWoofer


Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)

Sounds but no bass


Check your setting for the sub first. If that doesn't pan out it is likely to be the amp.

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.


Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.
