Blown circuit. The question is; was it the power supply that blew out or was it the amp? check for fuses and see if they are ok. If they are not, replace them. IF they are then you are going to have to get new amp and or power supply.

SOURCE: Buzzing Cerwin Vega LS-12 Subwoofer

If it's not interference or a ground problem it might be a bad amp. I have the same sub and not only did I have the buzzing, but also a noticable "whacking" sound instead of smooth bass. I found an online seller who at the time just happened to have obtained some surplus Cerwin Vega amps that fit perfectly. Paid $60 shipped. Problem solved.

SOURCE: cerwin vega ht-10d subwoofer won't work in yamaha reciever

Actually, I had the same problem with my JBL PB10. It was the cable. I had to buy a one direction shielded rca cable. If you put it in backwards it will not work. The cable was around 75.00. But it was well worth it. The first cable I tried was a cheap sony brand sub rca cable. I ended up buying the AR(Acoustic Research) 15ft. directional subwoofer RCA cable from Best Buy. Make sure you have your receiver set to the proper setting too. If you have it hooked to main, set it to main. If you have it hooked to the L.F.E.(RCA cable) set it on L.F.E.. Some have the option to set to both. If it is a non powered sub a RCA cable will not work. You will have to run your main speaker cables to the sub first, then from the sub to the speakers. It then "piggybacks" the Low Frequency signals from the receiver.

Passive woofers are hooked up to the output of a sub amp.
Active woofers are hooked up to the sub out of a receiver. They have the amp built in.

SOURCE: Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect

grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

-Chris

If you have a look at the above link, there are pictures of the crossover as well as the schematic for the crossover.
you will see in the second photo there are two yellow discs attached to the circuit board. you just need to remove these discs which are PTC Polyswitches, and replace both of these with wire links.

I have a cerwin vega subwoofer that keeps blowing the fuse


Take a look at the Voltage selector switch (if one is existing). It may be switched at the wrong position. In that case, I hope that the power supply is not burned out (if it is set at the wrong position).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

It should have a small fuse on the board between the transformer and the board. Check that first. If it is good see if the transformer is putting out any voltage. Two easy fixes that can be done in house...

I HAVE A CERWIN VEGA CLS-15S POWERED SUB AND A PIONEER RECEIVER WITH NO RCA SUB HOOK UP ON BACK. HOW DO YOU HOOK IT UP


flathead30,
This is an old question but if you have not yet figured anything out, hear is a suggestion.

Without buying any other electronics, use your tape output on the receiver and let your sub's built in crossover to filter the highs out of the signal.

Cerwin Vega V-10S Subwoofer doesn´t sounds good


dear "rai17"

This, to me, is most likely the voice coil inside the driver rubbung against the yolk plate, or possibly the spyder slapping the metal plate underneath it, or the amp-(if it has one?) getting tired. this can occur from poor build quality, or playing the subwoofer too loud. depending on how much it cost you, you may want to get it repaired(voice coil re-alignment or something or new amp). But the way it seems, it is probably the driver itself. subwoofers get looser as they break in. This one may have been over-broken....sorry

I hope this helped clarify what is happening!

Cerwin-Vega EXL1000D Amplifier Broken?


Call Cerwin-Vega and they should offer a "Flat-Rate" repair for it. No matter what is wrong with it, for a flat rate, they will fix it. If not, most any repair shop should be able to. If not, heck, I'LL buy it off ya! (I love Cerwin Vega stuff...)
