My Paradigm PDR 12 subwoofer has started to make crackling noises. Is this an amplifier malfunction?


Depends when it makes these crackling noises.

If it's when the sub isn't being driven, then it could be the amp. (Check for bulging capacitors on the amp board). If it's when you move cables about then it could be a broken lead or a dry solder joint on one of the inputs.

If the crackling is when the sub is running then it might be the voice coil has distorted due to being overdriven with a poor and highly distorted signal.

Crackling


So if you bought enclosures that are premade AND had the speakers installed, you need to see if there is a cross over network installed in them

I have a bamf 5500 series and the amp is on and working but when i turn up the volume the amp will go into protect mode and stay there untill i turn the volume back down then the amp comes out of protect...


you probably have a blown sub(s) that short out when the volume is turned up. it would be a good idea to find out which one(s) is bad and replace it. sooner or later it may make the amp go bad if not replaced or removed.

I have a wharfedale svp15 passive loudspeaker. The subwoofer has started crackling and popping at low volumes and has no deep bass. At high volumes it sounds great as usual and can't tell if the crackling...


Information I find online says it an Active Subwoofer, so that introduces its own amp as a possible source of the symptom. If there is another version of this model that's passive, all the more reason to believe the amp is the problem because passive speakers don't spontaneously emit sounds.

If there was a physical reason for the crackling I would think more power would make it worse or blow it up.

A poor sub signal cable connection might explain low current anomalies if random noises are entering the signal path.

Make sure the signal, speaker and power cables are not aligned parallel and close to each other.

My Aiwa powererd sub-woofer TS-W50U) has crackling sound.


Crackling is an unusual noise but typically indicates a bad capacitor in the amplifier board. This can be a rather costly repair but first we will go through basic trouble shooting steps.

Reduce the volume on the sub and see if the noise remains and changes with the volume.

Unplug the sub and disconnect interconnect cables. With both hands push softly on the speaker cone to move it in, let it back out and do this a few times. If you hear a scraping noise and some resistance your driver is misaligned and you need to recone or replace the driver.

Check all your interconnect cables, there may be a bad internal connection (usually causes pops and cut-outs).

Let me know how things workout. If it makes the crackling noise at all volumes and the driver seems fine then I would seek a professional to repair it, or replace.

Cheers,

Kevin

What could be causing my Powered Sub Woofer to make crackling noises when stereo is on or off?


Model specification would help with this, but it could be dirt (or fur if you have pets) in the circuit. This is to assume that the unit is in a standby mode rather than off or unplugged. If the subwoofer is a powered sub, then the problem is more than likely in the sub. Verify this by unplugging the cable from the main unit and see if it still crackles. I would need a Make/model to diagnose any further.

I have a few problems. i have 2 amps and 4 subs. first problem is when i connect one amp to my speakers it just hisses and crackles. this never happened before. when i turn up the gain to try and get...


The first amp, sounds like there is straight power going through the gain instead of it being limited. The second amp...hook the other subs up to it and see if it sounds ok. If so, then the subs are messed up. If it sounds the same, make sure the subs are connected correctly.

Crackling coming from Velodyne DD-10 subwoofer


One of 2 things is going on.

First, the servo mounted in the driver may be going bad or is picking up some noise.

Second, Something in the amp section is going bad, hard to pinpoint the exact problem.

you say that it plays, so I tend to think it is the driver mounted servo unit.

If it is within the warranty time, take the unit back to the retailer you purchased it from, if not contact Velodyne for repair.

Cerwin Vega ve-28s subwoofer and new Cervin Vega 2-way satellites


I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.

My amp works but my sub doesn't...!!!????????????


Whats the condition of your amplifier? New , Used, Old?

 

You might have a blown channel off your amplifier, this may cause little or no sound. You will have some distortion, crackle sound and then maybe nothing at all. What kind of subs are you running to it? Make sure the subs arent blown and check the voice coils to see that they are not torn off the subs , these are the 2 little silver or copper wires that are connected from the speaker connectors to the sub itself.

 

Let me know what happens?
