Question about Polk Audio Audio Players & Recorders

Why would my pw 350 subwoofer lose all it's power? There are no lights at all or sound, please help!!!

My subwoofer has been working great, in the middle of a song it just stopped working. There is lights on at all, I have unplugged it and plugged it back in. Tried a different outlet also. Is there a fuse or something else I should be looking for? Please any info would be great! Thank you

There is probably an internal fuse which you can check with the amp unplugged (unbolt the amp from the woofer, noting all gaskets.) If it's blown, it could have fatigued so just replacing it would fix it, or it may have blown because the amp or power supply failed. If that is the case, a new fuse will blow immediately. I can fix it for you if it has a blown amp or supply. Contact me at ken_more@netzero.net.

SOURCE: Subwoofer just stopped working. There's power but no sound.

I have the same problem. My guess is that the subwoofer coil is messed up. You MIGHT have to get it recoiled. But before you do any of that get someone with a sub to play their sub in your car, if it works.... then your sub is messed up, if not.....then your amp is messed up ( trial and error ). Today i noticed my subs rubber surrounding is crooked, that may be the problem for me. Also when I press down on the sub it makes a sticking sound, like something came loose. So once i get everything opened and out ill let you all know the solution. Good Luck!

SOURCE: cerwin vega ht-10d subwoofer won't work in yamaha reciever

Actually, I had the same problem with my JBL PB10. It was the cable. I had to buy a one direction shielded rca cable. If you put it in backwards it will not work. The cable was around 75.00. But it was well worth it. The first cable I tried was a cheap sony brand sub rca cable. I ended up buying the AR(Acoustic Research) 15ft. directional subwoofer RCA cable from Best Buy. Make sure you have your receiver set to the proper setting too. If you have it hooked to main, set it to main. If you have it hooked to the L.F.E.(RCA cable) set it on L.F.E.. Some have the option to set to both. If it is a non powered sub a RCA cable will not work. You will have to run your main speaker cables to the sub first, then from the sub to the speakers. It then "piggybacks" the Low Frequency signals from the receiver.

SOURCE: Klipsch ksw subwoofer wont power on

The problem is Klipsch's problem, and they don't seem to want to face it. My 10" subwoofer blows the fuse before the power light can even come on. It's obvious that the fuse is not strong enough, but there is a delicate area between the fuse and the power supply. Too many amps on a fuse may keep it from blowing, but it may cook the power supply. Kipsch needs to fix this, tell us how to fix it, or replace it...at their expense. This should NOT be happening. Otherwise a great speaker....when it works.

SOURCE: no sound in sound bar and subwoofer

for Jameslicon re wireless sub going on and off repeatedly. Both the soundbar and the sub have 4 wireless channels - try a different pairing of those channels. There is a sliding switch on the back of both units. I set each of mine to channel 4 and the problem went away. There is also a signal level switch with 3 levels on the back of the soundbar. If the wireless channel idea does not work, try a different setting on the level switch. Good luck.

Klipsch sw 350 subwoofer not working in auto on off position


The audio signal on the subwoofer output of your amplifier turns on the subwoofer after a brief delay to prevent "popping". Sometimes you have to crank up the gain to turn on the sub, then turn it down to a comfortable level. If this approach does not produce results, there may have been a component failure in the input circuit.

If its the subwoofer your talking about, the remote (thin blue wire) or the audio (white/red wire) might have come lose or disconnected!

Amp is shutting off after 10 min of driving!! please help!!


Does it happen at all volume levels?
What is the gain setting on the sub amp?
Have you checked for 12V @ remote turn on after problem occurs?
Sounds as if the remote turn on relay inside the amplifier is losing signal, or has become damaged. If the protection light does not light up, the problem is not thermal, shorting, or high/low voltage.
The amplifier is in need of repair. This is not an end-user fix. Looking at about $50 to repair.

Thanks for using FixYa- a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

LEDs don't light


??????????????? only on fixya would we get a complaint that speakers that are supposed to make sound work great but some lights on them dont work.... ugh.. ok with most of the spealers that have l.e.d.s typically have a seperate connection for the lights. The red wire goes to a switched 12 volt power source, the black goes to chassis ground... if they have power and ground but dont light up then they are junk...

Subwoofer not working


you have to reset the receiver, i had the same problem, works now, it's great, should be in the instruction booklet. I think it was, hold the power button while you disconnect it from the wall, not too clear but check the booklet in resetting system
