Question about Jamo E6SUB Subwoofer

1 Answer

No Sound from Jamo E6 Sub

I have power to the sub however it doesn't activate or turn on when the stereo is running. Before the sub stopped working I would have to turn the volume on my receiver higher with each use in order to 'trigger' it so it turns on. Seems to be stuck in "sleep mode".... The speaker's voice coil is not blown as I take speaker wire from one of my surround speakers go directly to the woofer and sound comes through sub.

is the plate amp fried?

More likely there is a bad solder connection or a bad connector contact inside the unit, could also be a blown or dried up electrolytic capacitor.

Check the line signal input plugs, if they are soldered directly to the board then check the solder around the pins - if it has circular cracks, you need to resolder the pins.

Also check any other components on the board for such cracks on the pins, including internal connectors, disconnect, clean the pins if necessary and reconnect them.

If any electrolytic capacitors have a bulged top, they are blown and need to be replaced.

It could as well be something else, but your description suggests either a fault at the input connectors or some trouble with the input signal level sensing circuitry (no signal to the sensing circuit may be caused by connectors, no response from the sensing circuit may be caused by bad capacitors or other faulty components in or around that section).

Hope you can find out what it is and fix it...

My jamo sub 200 & pioneer vsx517 receiver is not working properly


What do you mean that it sometimes doesn't work? It doesn't power on automatically?
Check settings of your receiver - if it has subwoofer output enables and if low frequencies from all channels are directed also to the SUB. By default only the LFE channel (.1) of 5.1 signal input is fed to the subwoofer. So Sub will work in this case only when you listen to 5.1 signal (DVD movie for example), but for radio or stereo music, only front speakers are used. By configuring this bass redirect, you can use subwoofer for all signal types.

hi

since it is a powered speaker, probably it just needs a sound signal which you can get from the headphone socket. please double check with someone else.

I have no amp for jamo 1060 sub


Dual Voice-Coil
The unique Dual Voice-Coil design allows both left and right channel sound from just one speaker. Simply hook up both the left and the right channels to the special terminals on the speaker. Hook up one channel only, if the speaker is to be used in a conventional stereo set-up.
I found this on jamo site hope that will help you

Subwoofer noise


You didn't say is your sub active or passive.If its active first check signal cables from theater system,power line of the sub, it has to be the same phase as the system.If its passive take a voltmeter disconnect the sub from the system and measure for DC voltage on the SUB output on the system when its OFF.If DC voltage is present your amp is damaged.It can also be that the preamp circuit for the sub doesn't mute the input when unit is on stand by and you hear frequency of your power supply (50-60Hz) on the sub
