I have atomic A-8 subwoofer and philips FR740 receiver. when i turn the amplifier and the subwoofer "on", the subwoofer starts to hum loudly and it is wery annoying. i made all the connections...


The symptom sounds like an open signal shield somewhere and the cable is acting like an antenna for airborne electrical noise.

Disconnect the RCA cable at the sub. Is it still humming? NO? Problem is external to it. YES? Internal. Broken ground somewhere.

Recheck all connections making sure to twist the RCA head as you install it so oxides will be worn off.

Consider what may have changed in the environment regarding electrical devices, motors, magnetic sources. Ensure signal and speaker wires as ar not running are as non-parallel to any power cords as practicable.

AR SW-30 subwoofer doesn't switch to standby mode when off


Disconnect its input cable to see if a true lack of signal lets it go to sleep. If not, it has a bug. Otherwise, you probably have some sort of signal present on the sub cable.

Kenwood receiver/sub problem


The amp's remote turn-on wire is probably connected to the blue wire coming from the back of the stereo - this is intended for a power antenna, which is why it only works when listening to the radio. Disconnect it from the blue wire and connect it to the blue/white wire coming from the back of the receiver and you should be good to go.

I have the same speaker and it sounds like its behaving properly.

if you look on the back of the amp, you will find a switch that allows the speaker to automatically switch the speaker on or off based on the level of the audio coming from the tuner that it is attached to. If the switch is set to the auto mode, then it will listen for audio on the line and if the signal level coming into the subwoofer is high enough, the amplifier in the subwoofer will turn on and play. If the signal is not strong or loud enough, then the subwoofer will not turn on. There are two solutions to getting the speaker to work.

1. When you turn on the tuner or audio source that is feeding the Subwoofer speaker, you will need to turn it up loud enough to trigger the circuit in the subwoofer to switch on.

2. Alternatively, you can bypass the automatic circuit and set it to the "ON position all the time. In this position the subwoofer is always ready and waiting and should play any signal that is fed to it regardless of the loudness or volume of sound from the tuner. The switch is located on the back of the speaker cabinet just to the right of the red and black speaker wire connections. It is labeled "AUTO" and the switch positions are labeled ON and OFF.

Hope this helps!
