Subwoofer - no sound

The LED is on so there is power, but there is no sound coming out of the subwoofer regardless of the volume control's position (the satellites are working fine). Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Subwoofer powers on ok, volume level stays at mid to high range. Adjustment on back has no effect or distorts sound a bit please help

If you have plugged the input to the LFE socket the volume control may not have any effect coz' its ment to be controlled by the AV receiver in this mode. Connect to the L/R scoket ( any one will do ).

No sound from subwoofer

have you checked for the continuity of the wirings? check for the resistance of your speaker from it jack..... it should measure close to 8ohms or 4ohms using a digital multimeter (DMM). check also the sub out jack of your reciever if there is a signal from it using your main speakers if they come with jacks also (turn the volume low to prevent damage to other speakers you connect on it!

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!
