I have an AR s112ps subwoofer. I woofer is blown and i would like to find a replacement woofer. I havent had any luck looking on the net so far. any ideas?

all you need is an 8 ohm subwoofer or a Dual Voice Coil (DVC) 4 ohm subwoofer wired in series that can handle 120 Watts rms. I Went with a Rockford Fosgate Punch P1 P1S812 12-Inch 150-Watt Subwoofer - 8 Ohm

it was only $35 from amazon and is probably nicer quality than the original driver. Good Luck

Well I also have a S112PS AR Sub Woofer Problem...

Are you sure it is receiving an audio signal to make it wake up? You don't mention what's upstream in the audio chain.

To eliminate mis-settings or lack of sub-related signal upstream, plug an RCA cable from a CD player directly into it and start a CD that fades in slowly because you won't have any way to lower the volume except to pause the CD. If the sub works you'll hear a muffled version of the program.

Hi it is green then it turn red when i cut it off it go back to green , on the back all it has it off or auto/on what to do?

Something is causing it to go into protect mode. Auto on is best because it turns on when an audio signal is recieved. A sutten surge of sound can often cause it to protect itself. If this does not solve the problem, then you might have a bad amplifier in he unit. You can often replace that amp, but sometimes its just best to replace the whole unit. If the subwoffer is bad, it can also cause the unit to go into protect.

Blowin resistor on my Acoustic Research S112PS

When I put an ohm-meter across it, I get 505-ohms. The color code looks like maybe green, dark brown, brown? Mine is discolored too. Green, brown, brown would be 510ohms. . .so that must be it. The tolerance band is gold, so that's +/-5% so that would explain the 5 ohm variance.

I have the same speaker and it sounds like its behaving properly.

if you look on the back of the amp, you will find a switch that allows the speaker to automatically switch the speaker on or off based on the level of the audio coming from the tuner that it is attached to. If the switch is set to the auto mode, then it will listen for audio on the line and if the signal level coming into the subwoofer is high enough, the amplifier in the subwoofer will turn on and play. If the signal is not strong or loud enough, then the subwoofer will not turn on. There are two solutions to getting the speaker to work.

1. When you turn on the tuner or audio source that is feeding the Subwoofer speaker, you will need to turn it up loud enough to trigger the circuit in the subwoofer to switch on.

2. Alternatively, you can bypass the automatic circuit and set it to the "ON position all the time. In this position the subwoofer is always ready and waiting and should play any signal that is fed to it regardless of the loudness or volume of sound from the tuner. The switch is located on the back of the speaker cabinet just to the right of the red and black speaker wire connections. It is labeled "AUTO" and the switch positions are labeled ON and OFF.

Hope this helps!
