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

When I first installed and connected my Cerwin Vega Subwoofer in to my DENON AVR-485 the Bass sound was mega-awesome!!! but a month later the the Subwoofer starts to make a rare noise and the bass tones didn´t work good, its like a vibrating sound, like if the cone is broken, I already check up the connections, the subwoofer (horn) cone is fine and everything seems to be ok. What is the problem? Thanks... RAUL

Re: 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!

HI, I am trying to connect my cerwin vega xd3's to my pc (which works fine) and my Samsung LCD TV. I am not getting any sound out of them with the TV on. I have replaced the rca jacks and still...

The "audio jacks" on the rear of your Samsung TV are intended to connect TV audio to an amplifier. Your CV XD3s should be connected to the amplifier output.

Got a cerwin vega cls 12s keeps blowing fuses. It has been well kept and all the connections are in the right place. It pop's before the light can come on. How do I fix, radio shack just down the road.

by the sounds of it the internal transformer could be duff. You need to take readings from the transformer using a multimeter to check correct voltages are coming out of the transformer to their destinations. I would also chek the capacitors and other components on the chain pre and post transformer to make sure none of them are damaged too.

I own a CERWIN-VEGA V-12S 12" Front Firing V

You may have only messed up the crossover circuit. Try changing the crossover frequency and see if hte behavior changes. If so, then the parts cost should be minimal. If the behaviorr remains the same, there will need to be more investigation done internally. This is not a problem that is likely to be easily resolved remotely. Can you update this with your location? I may be able to provide a recommendation for a service shop.

Hello. My ve 28s crackles when in standby mode, and also plays crackly bass. Please help me by telling me which component to replace within the amp. as I have no Cerwin Vega agent support here in South...

This "Crackling" Problem is common with the Cerwin Vega VE-28S Subwoofer. If your subwoofer is out of warranty, and you know how to solder, you can fix the problem by replacing a few resistors, and transistors inside the amplifier. Get the parts on ebay:

Cerwin Vega do I connect

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.

Buzzing Cerwin Vega LS-12 Subwoofer

Generally, a buzz from your sound equipment indicates some sort of nearby EMI. The normal culprits and.or possible fixes that I've found are:

- Remove any other electronic devices plugged into the same outlet as your subwoofer

- If the woofer is on a power strip/surge protector, remove it and plug directly into the wall

- If there are any nearby wireless devices (cordless phiones, WiFi eqiupment), disconnect/power down them

- Try connecting different speaker wire between the woofer & the receiver

- Try turning off all other eletronic equipment with the exception of your receiver

Let me know if any of these help and good luck!

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.
