SOURCE: Thump at the time of shutoff

The amplifier in the sub as with any other amplifier has a capacitor in it. Essentially a battery that holds a charge. When you trun things off such as subs or amps with a powerstrip instead of the intended on off button, the power supply has been cut, but the capacitor is still energizing the unit. So it catches the noise in the line.

SOURCE: JBL PB10 subwoofer, it makes a loud burp noise when it comes on.

In the industry - It is called "Turn-On Thump".

There are some manufacturers that eliminate components like noise filters on enry level lines to save money.

There is no way to lessen this noise without ripping the amplifier apart and having a technical knowledge of the way amplifiers work. It would involve hard-wiring a slow charge capacitor in the turn on line so it gradually builds power instead of getting it all at once.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

it can be the amp or the speaker itself. it has to be diagnosed by a service center.
if the amp is the problem, there can be board replacements or component level repair. if it is the 15" speaker, then it can be reconed with authentic genuine JBL parts returning it to brand new. cathy@speakerex.com

Could be either the amp inside it or an Electrolytic Capacitor in the power section of it. But then again it could be one anywhere, they like making noise when they go. Capacitors are cheaper than semiconductor devices to replace, so you could go for them first.

SOURCE: the subwoofer just quit working

if the light still comes on then the fuse is still good....

a possiblity exists that either the amplifier or the actual speaker itself went bad....if you like you can dissasemble the the subwoofer to access the insides....a simple test....if you connect the driver to another amp (any amp will do as this is just a test) and it makes sound then chances are your amp is bad or just a loose connection.

Disturbance while increasing bass in JBL SPYRO


I have a similar problem. You need to open your subwoofer and check if the subwoofers cone cloth is torn. If it's torn you can recone the subwoofer and it will work fine. There are solutions online to fix the cloth using regular synthetic mix cloth but i don't know if it works. Try removing the cloth to see if it sounds better.

The subwoofer stops working and makes a loud flat sound that can only be stopped by unplugging it. I replaced the subwoofer with another one in the house so it's not a receiver or wire connection...

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.


You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.
