Woofer works intermittently

When I shake it, it works then cuts out again. It's only the bass. I opened it up but found nothing loose. I love this set and have hea it since 1999. I really want to keep it. It rocks.

Try to check voltage input. Because when we increases the bass or volume it takes more power to modulate.. this might solve your issue..

Can I use my Logitech x-230 speakers without the sub-woofer? My sub-woofer got busted!! Any suggestions?Perfectly good speakers!


i had the same problem with same speaker system. the amp for this system is inside the bass speaker. if your amp is still working but your bass speaker is not you could cut the wires to that speaker making sure the cut wires do not short out. i was quoted more to repair them than it was to buy a new set. but i wont be buying logitech again as ive had two lots fail.

A425 subwoofer, more bass? wires came off, no bass managment.


I wouldn't cross wires or leave one disconnected. Can you solder the wires back on the the control knob? Did you feel the subwoofer cone to see if it's working at all? I would guess the wire you didn't connect, is the subwoofer wire. Try putting it back to original cofiguration and solder the wires in place.

My Onkyo sub-woofer sounds like something is loose in it or rolling around...the sound is similar to shaking a can of spray paint. When I plug it in to the system it sounds crackly. If i turn the volume...


sub woofers are very powerful bass , with incredible sounding technology. your problem might be with the woofer wall around the circle. open the box and take the woofer out.Check if there is any tare over the corners of the cloth. sometimes there might be a crazy noise because of a little opening in the cloth caused by small tare.. if so better change it with a new 1 and make sure that the new cloth has guaranty

Woofer sound is very loose


If you mean low bass, then you can adjust with the bass controller to reduce the limit of the bass frequency. Check to see the woofer mountings are firm, the wires are intact and if possible reverse the connection and try again. If you are not happy try with another woofer or get your woofer checked with a system at your friends to confrim if the woofer itself could be the issue. If so chcek for the suspension of the woofer, rubbing of the voice coils or the spider being loose.You can repair the woofer by using a good glue to fix or to change the suspension . Hope you try. Good day

Woofer cuts out intermittently


Buy a soldering iron and go over all solder connections on the circuit board. Sounds like you have a cold or intermittent solder connection. Also make sure the problem isn't in the subwoofer cable. Don't be afraid to do a little soldering, and just make sure you don't create "bridges" between existing solder connection. Only heat the connections long enough to melt them and add a little solder, as excessive heat can destroy sensitive components. Before doing all this, remove and reinsert all related cables into their jacks several times, as these connections can become oxidized and make poor contact over time.
