    Solution #1 says its a loose connection in power circuit. Do you take the back off to get to this? My subwoofer goes on lasts for a while then powers off. I can switch the unit off and wait awhile then it will go on for a while then it goes off. I can hear a little click when it goes off - its almost like there is a breaker inside turning it off. also, when I take the power off of it in about 3 seconds the green power light blinks.

I Think its a loose connection in electric circuit. Due to vibration in the woofer the connection might be going off. Check the power circuit for any loose connections.

I have a vsx44 pioneer and i plug my subwoofer do not work my sub has 2 wires and i have an adapter to plug at the receiver


Is the adapter on the back of the receiver a yellow one (like a tv's red/white/yellow)? And the sub itself is a 2 wire (red/black)? If the subwoofer is just a speaker with no electronics and you answered yes to the first two questions then continue reading...

Problem: New receivers suck and are made for subwoofers that are self powered. The subwoofer input on the receiver only puts out a low signal. The subwoofer itself will amplify the the signal.

Solution: Find a receiver that supports the older subwoofers or do like I did... buy a used 3D surround system for around $10 on eBay, if you don't have one laying around. Be sure to find one that shows a picture of the back so you can verify that it has the 2 wire inputs and supports a subwoofer. Once you have it, connect a cable from the receivers subwoofer output into the surround systems input. It will be only one wire so plug it into the left (white) input on the surround box. You can also use a splitter to get both left/right inputs.

This will enable your subwoofer to be used again and will also give you alot more control over it. Turning off the surround sound box will allow you to keep the bass off when needed. You will also gain individual volume control over your subwoofer this way. I hope this helps!

Fuse replacement


The fuse is integrated in hte AC socket. You'll need a small screw driver to pry up the part that talks about the power requirements. Check the online manuals for more details.

My Sony SA-WM40 subwoofer has power, but sound kicks out. I'll turn off power for about 5min and when turn power on, sound is back. Is something overheating?


Probably, or the woofer coil itself is experiencing a heat, volume or motion related short. Clean any dust or debris from the heat sink fins in the back. Make sure it has lots of space for cooling ventilation.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

No sound when hooking receiver to subwoofer using standard red RCA cable. Do I need a subwoofer cable?? I have turned my tuner subwoofer to YES, powered up receiver and subwoofer but nothing.


Probably not if it takes RCA input, but the receiver needs to be informed of the sub's presence and hw you want to share low frequencies among the rest of the speakers and itself. Then you need to set the relative levels using test tones, which also proves the sub works.

SUBWOOFER WON'T POWER ON (Grounding out???)


Check your cable that runs between the main unit and sub for bent pins. If they look fine there may be a short in the sub itself that is causing it to go in to shutdown.
