Question about JBL PB10 Subwoofer
I reviewed similar problems on this site, but didn't see a helpful response. I'd like fix it myself if parts are available and reasonably priced, so any assistance there would also be appreciated. Thanks.
Hello, Jesse. I doubt I can help, but there is at least one SIMPLE thing you can try - with maybe a 10% chance it wil return your unit to normal: Unplug the unit for 30 seconds, then plug it back in to a DIFFERENT outlet. Oh, yes - there are NO fuses or other "reset" devices. I'm sorry I couldn't offer you more help.

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.

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!!

More likely to be the Class D power amp module, but you should look through the service manual to make sure all the parts are installed correctly. My PB10 AMP module went out and you cannot get one anymore.
