Question about Cerwin Vega Audio Players & Recorders
The switch in the back that makes you choose between 110v and 220v was put on 110v when it should have been on 220v.... so now the subwoofer doesn`t work.. can somebody please help me???
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.

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.

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.

You have several ranges of options.

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.

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.
