Constant loud muffled noise coming from the sub and speakers.

Unwanted sound from subwoofer.

switch your subwoofer off from the socket for at least 30 minutes and check if the noise is still there,if its still there open it and play a movie then press it lower if the sound stops then you will have to put some toilet papers at the back of it ,thats what I did to mine.
