Re: dd-18 no sound coming from it...

You could try disabling the auto-on feature or you could try a factory reset or firmware upgrade.

Swap the wires between subwoofers to see if its the wiring.

If its no longer under warranty you could try swapping the amp modules or the fuses, this will tell you if its a fuse or the amp or the driver... however by doing this you risk blowing up the second working amp or voiding warranty.

Last year I had an amp failure on my velodyne and it cost 250 for a 2007 replacement.

I need a fuses for my durabrand home theater system and model is ht-3916. i went to radio shack and purchase a fuse 1.6 amp volt fuses and it still don't work can you please help me thank you

Do you mean it blew them again or that it didn't work and the fuse is still intact?
If it blew it again the problem is not the fuses. Instead what you have is a semi-conductor device that has developed a short and that is blowing the fuse. Check any devices in the power supply section, look for signs of damage or heat and also any devices on the heat-sink.

If the fuse did not go and it still doesn't work check the power supply only or the on-off switch.

I have my sub now for over 8 years. it does not cut it for HT. the sub is just too slow in responding . can i change the woofer with another in the same box and amp.

Too slow??? Never heard that one before. Can you describe the problem in sonic terms? It will only play what it is fed. THAT would be a function of your HT.

Its own amp might also be a limitation. Having full-range speakers around the room and properly routing bass to the channels it came from would also take some of the burden off of the sub.

My lenoxx sound ht-3915 made a sudden elctronic noise one day and stopped producing sound. you can still turn it on and you can hear the speakers hissing like the power is on but there is no sound comming...

make sure you dont have any speaker wires shorting out and that none of your speakers are blown out. do this by simply connectinf one speaker at a time and check for sound. if this dont work you may need to replace it.

JBL Subwoofer - Intermittent operation

Sometimes bad caps show a lifting or rounding of the top of the cap, sometimes this top will split from heat and pressure and sometimes it will not show any sign of damage but will be dry inside and its capacitance value will drop to a very low value. Replace the big power supply caps and test again. Get the same size, value and voltage rating. You can go higher on voltage rating and a bit on value. Getting a similar size or something that will fit in the same space is important also.
