PS-212 Suddenly stopped working

My infinity PS-212 just stopped working 3 days after i bought it it just stopped working for days at a time then it randomly turns back on and works but repeats the problem and i never know when its gonna work the light on the back of the sub that is supposed to turn red if the subwoofer doesnt detect your amp is not working either its alway stuck on green even when i disconnect the subwoofer cable from my amp (it didnt do that when i first got it) i thought it was my subwoofer cable at first so i bought a 90$ dollar Monster THX Subwoofer Cable nothing i tried hooking my infinity to 2 different home theater receivers including my own still nothing my old 8 inch Accurian 100 Watt powered sub works like a champ on my amp so i know its not my receiver and i know its not any of my cables either i never turned the sub up anywhere near loud enough to blow it but i started to notice a faint burning smell coming from the back of the sub and i havent messed with any of the subwoofer setting on my amp since i got it so everything is the way it was when it worked and when it quit on me so im out of ideas on what it could be im really upset with this product and i wish i never bought it =/ and if your reading these reviews in order to decide if you want to buy any of their subwoofers DONT make the same mistake i did

I HAVE 4 PS212 AND FROM WHAT YOU ARE DISCRIBING SOUNDS SIMILIAR TO WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. PLAYING THE SUB AT FULL VOLUME AND CLIPPING OCCURED NOT KNOWING THAT THE FAINT SMELL WAS THE VOICE COIL BURNING AND CONTINUING TO PLAY UNTIL KNOW SOUND LESSON LEARNED BUY A BIGGER SUB SYSTEM OR REPLACE YOUR SUB WOOFER.
IN MY OPPINION THIS IS A VERY GOOD PRODUCT WHICH I HAVE BEEN ABUSEING FOR MONTHS . SO QUIT WHINEING AND PAY YOUR DUES.

My infinity ps210 stops putting out any bass. It was working fine a few days ago but it just stops working without any obvious reason. I bought it fourteen months ago from amazon and I've hardly used it....


Hey. I have two PS210's One popped and stopped working 9 months in to it. Under warranty the technician said that Infinity produced these speakers wit ha known heat related problem. Some part burns up. He replaces them all the time. You can expect about a year's service as my seconf one just popped and died. It costs about $153 to fix it here in phoenix. Will never buy Infinity again from what I know

Infinity PS-10 quit working


I think the electronics have a 3 years warranty and the drivers have a five years warranty for this product, maybe you can have it replaced. Maybe the auto on/off signal detector is the culprit.

Infinity 3.5c , 2 powered Woofer 5.25" suddenly no sound.,


The woofers on my 3.5c stopped working, but with mine the light was off. I unplugged it and left it for about 24 hours and then plugged it back in and it worked. No idea why. It's happened twice and each time takes at least 12 hours or a day or so before it'll work again, just unplugging it for an hour won't do it.

It seems like both times the problem started when the speaker got unplugged without it being shutoff first, but I can't confirm.

But if your light is still on it's probably a different problem. With my 4.1t towers when the light was on but there was still no sound it equated to numerous fried amp components which cost about $150 for repair.
