Question about JBL PSW-D110 Speaker

1 Answer

Sub works then turns off

Ok so I plug my sub in to my reciever with a monster cord. Its positional, if I push it in too far it shuts off. If I leave it halfway on it shuts off after mins of the sub on.... whats the deal. I pulled the entire back off and the cover that holds it. I tried tighting the screws... Not sure how to resolve this issue. It wouldnt be a fuse, because it does come back on its just a problem with the plug and that seems fine...

You're dancing around the clues. The position of the monster cable seems to affect it. What shuts off - the receiver (need to know make/model) or the sub? Just connect the cable deep enough to make contact with the metal parts you can see of the clips and/or binding posts. Don't let any conductor touch more than one metal surface. Now what?

How is it attached - RCA cables or speaker output from the receiver? Need specific info to make a good diagnosis.

The time factor is curious. Again, what's turning off? The receiver? There should be no reason for it to overload since it just supplies either Line Level to the sub amp's Low Pass Input or speaker level to the sub's Speaker In terminals. Are you slaving your Front Speakers out the back of the sub or are they on the receiver? Experiment with them disconnected.

How do i connect my subwoofer to my home theater


Easy. Your home theatre amp will have a sub or LFE output ( RCA plug ). You simply connect this output to the input ( usually the left side, or use a Y splitter and use left and right inputs, or the LFE input if your sub has it ). Then, you must turn the sub on in your recievers setup menu, and your sub should work.

My Creature II speakers still work however the big subwoffer isnt working. I think it is probably just the cord but is there a way I can be sure


Which cord are you thinking of? If you look at the subwoofer there are 4 cords. One to the left tweeter, one to the right tweeter, one to the computer and one to the power.
  1. As both the tweeters are woring then those 2 cords are OK.
  2. As both tweeters are working then the cord to the computer is OK.
  3. As both tweeters are working then the cord to the power is OK.
  4. Therefore it is not 'just the cord.'
What I would suggest is checking that the sub has not been turned down - one of the silver posts on the sub. If that is not the case and you cannot turn the sub volume up then I suggest that you replace the system. They probably cost more to repair than to buy new.

Hooked up the system, subwoofer worked OK for about 3 hours then stopped outputting sound. Tried troubleshooting per manual but no luck. All other speakers appear to be working. I think the subwoofer died...


to make sure its not your reciever unplug sub from pre out side of reciever and with sub on run finger over the tip of the RCA you should get some kind of electral feed back from it through your sub if not then your sub or the amp inside is most likley fried if you know how to open the sub and can access it you may have a mini fuse inside that can be replaced but make sure consult somone about that and not just take my word

Sub doesnt do anything while plugged in ( Sunfire mk II)


Some subwoofers can sense the signal on their input and will only start when there's enough signal for long enough time for them to turn on the amp.

Try seting the "subwoofer signal out" on your reciever a bit higher, see if it does the trick, if not, try it with some other source (e.g. an mp3 or CD/DVD player) plugged directly into the subwoofer. If it still doesn't work, there's some other problem with your sub (bad connection inside sub, sub amplifier problems, maybe there's another fuse for the speaker itself, try to check it out).

If it works well with an alternate signal source, the problem might be either in reciever or the signal cable that you use, but could also be something else.

good luck

I have a PHOENIX GOLD RYVAL V1502 amplifier and trying to hook it up at 2 ohms as it describes it can be 450watts x2 at 2 ohms running wires from bridged positive and negative to the first sub then two...


Hello mgonzalez390,

It sounds like the amp/subs impedance is not matched. According to the published specifications for the V1502 amp, it is only stable in bridged mode down to 4ohms, not 2ohms. You need to get the final impedance that the amp sees up to at least 4ohms or it will continue to shut down and eventually fail completely.

If your subs are dual voice coil and can be rewired so that each sub has an impedance of 8ohms, then you can safely parallel them to the amp like you have described. If they are single 4ohm voice coils, then you have 2 choices. Connect one sub to each channel or if you want to bridge the channels, then wire the subs in series, not in parallel. Wire the positive bridged terminal from the amp to the first sub positive, connect a jumper from the negative of that sub to positive on the other sub, and then the negative from that sub back to the negative bridged terminal on the amp. This wiring results in an 8ohm load to the amp and it should work OK without shutting down. But the power to each sub will actually be less than if you wire them separately to each channel.

Hope this helps.

No sound from Sub.... from my Denon AVR-2700, not AVR-3300, Yeah its old!


if the subwoofer is on in the reciecer settings then maybe the amp is not getting the signal or the amp is not amplifying
try unplugging the output of the sub then turn off the reciever for a min. then turn it on wait , then plug the sub in
if that don't work then test the sub output with a stereo that has a audio input
also test the subwoofer with a audio output to it( only a positive and a negitive wire for sub)

No Sub Woofer Pre out output


I've got the same model and the pre out transistor needs to be replaced,
sometimes you can get it to work by unplugging the reciever and the pre out
then plug in the reciever and plug the pre out in a couple of times or so untill it comes on
or unplug the amp from the wall then plug in the pre out , turn on the reciever wait for sounds to come on then plug in the amp.
if that don't do it the pre out transistor needs to be replaced
