SOURCE: sr7200 LFE (sub woofer) output stopped working

Chances are if The Receiver only has sound in Stereo Direct Mode and all surround modes and Sub out are Inop the DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Card is most likey defective. These boards are not available from marantz (D&M Holdings) and must be Component level repaired which usually is not cheap. If Only the Sub out is not working check setup to be sure sub woofer is set for on. Also If On Screen setup menu does not appear on video monitor Unit may need to be Reset manually which entails discharging a Capaitor on main P.C.B Contact kstahl65@att.net for details

SOURCE: Power Indicator Light on Front Doesn't Light

The indicator light needs to be replaced, there is a loose or poorly soldered connection on one of the led's leads, or the circuit providing the signal (voltage) for the light isn't functioning.

The sub contains the amp for the other speakers. But it sounds like the amp has a seriously damaged section and will probably have to be serviced by Bose.

SOURCE: replacing sub speaker

I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

I have AIWA NSX-RV85. The sub-woofer surround tore leaving just the cone. When I play, The woofer just makes a rattling sound coming out of vibrating cone.Any advise on how to fix my speakers.Thanks


Refit the rubber, you can find itbon eBay, its called reconing actually in this case the cone is the inlybpart wich you dont want to replace... The rattling is beingproducer due to the fact the rubber normally holds the cone ibto positionering over the coils. This rattling is not good can defect your cone. So dont play it roll you got a new rubber fitted!

Fix a torn speaker cone?


If it is a woofer, you would probably fix it quite easy. If the speaker driver is used for both bass and midrange, you have a problem.
Fixing a speaker cone is depending on the material. If it is paper cone, it is very easy by using paper that you glue with wood glue (White water based glue) on to the cones rear side (for estetic reasons).
A midrange or bass/midrange driver is operating in frequencies where the cone starts to break up. Not torn apart, but the break up frequency is the frequency where the inner and outer part of the cone not longer follow each other in the same direction. These properties of a cone determine the sound of the speaker which is that type of speaker drivers "identity". Messing that identity up, you end up with a speaker that does not sound as the original one.
Remember that cross over network used to split up frequency ranges, not only are lowpass, bandpass, and highpass filter, but they also filter irregularities where the speaker driver is not longer providing a linear frequency response (Its characteristic sound).

If the cone is polypropylene, there isn't much glue that bite on that material.

Woofer,s outer ring is ripped.


To fix this problem, you will need to contact Velodyne.
They may be able to replace the surround or recone this driver.

Because this system has the "servo" control, you need to have the accelerometer conected to the amplifier. With out it, the amplifier will not operate.

SUB PULLS IN INSTEAD OF PUSHING OUT


In a normal subwoofer it does pull in and push out to create the sound. It could be that the voice coil is damaged (by over excursion running it into the magnet) and it now can't push out past a certain point hence looking like it's pulling in. Push in on the woofer with your hand, do you hear a scraping sound? If so it's time for a new sub. If not, take it out of the enclosure and push out on the cone from the inside, scraping now?
Another test for loose voice coil windings that I find works is the hold the sub up close to your ear and bang on the magnet with the palm of your hand, if you hear faint rattling or anything other than a low "thud" sound then there's is some sort of mechanical failure within the woofer............also time for replacement.

If all seems good at this point, try connecting it to a different amplifier, the sub itself may be fine. If you've lost one of the amplifier rail voltages the sub will pull in but not push out...(or vice versa depending on if it's the positive or the negative power rail)......and yes, it would sound distorted.

Sub woofer


Is there a gain control on the sub? If not, are you using a receiver or pre/processor to control volume? There could be a level adjust or on/off control for the subwoofer output.

Woofer making horrible noise! HELP!


Think as an expert... Probably from my experience repairing woofers etc... the cone (1) or the spider (2) isn't well glued onto the woofer skeleton(or both???) The woofer cone must be absolutely centered or else you will get those clicks in low frequencies(you also get them in higher frequencies but you can't hear them!) I must say that it is very difficult to repair a woofer by your own. I suggest to return it back where you bought it and take another one (i suppose that you have a guarantee ha?).
