Question about Paradigm PS1000 Speaker

1 Answer

Lightning struck and my paradigm ps1000 doesn't work anymore.

When I plug it in it just hums very loud. I have already removed the amp and checked the fuse on the board. I'm looking for some advice on where to have it repaired, or if it's even fixable. Are parts are still available anymore?

Paradigm service is excellent and they can supply parts. The amplifier has a one year warr. Check with a dealer or Your insurance may cover it.

How do I stop my Paradigm sub from humming and "burping?"

The amplifier that powers the sub is the source of your problems. Sounds like some power supply filter capacitors are failing.

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?

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!

Lighting struck the apartment about a week ago, tv was plugged in when lighting struck apartment. Tv does not turn on anymore.

Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.

Hum coming out of Front left/right speakers but not center

There is a chance that your wiring is producing this problem. Manufacturers don't always make equipment that is compatible with each other. The biggest problem's are "ground loops". Radio Shack has a non-electrical device that separates the common ground from all equipment. You basically connect it between your amp out's and in's - cables included. It is possible that other manufactures also make and sell this device too. It's main "Google" name would most likely be - "Ground Loop Isolators". If you are using the actually speaker outputs into your subwoofer amp input(s), check your polarity wiring again. Good luck with your system - it sounds like it'll rock when it's all setup correctly.

TV was struck by lightning

If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.

Sub thumps repeatedly

since it still thumps i suspect the speaker is ok, but i suspect you have an electronic problem in the amp. since it is a powered sup & has the ability to auto turn on it has electronic circuits inside, take it to a service center for an estimate
