What could be the issue with my sub woofer power?


Many of these SUB amps ended up with Capacitor failures in the Power supply section . Find someone who works on amps or TVs to have a look see.

My sub woofer cracks & acts like the speaker is blown. Hooked it up to another source & the speaker is fine. What should I look at next?


So you're saying one source makes it crackle and another source doesn't. That suggest the sub is fine and we should examine the source and it's signal path. Please elaborate as much as you can on what it it/they are.

Polk computer speakers work in laptop but not on desktop computer


desktops now a days have more than one plug for the speakers. try playing some music and play which hole works.

if there is a 5.1 or surround on the desktop then most likely the light green jack isnt stereo out but rather unamplified signal. thus when you plug head phones into it the internal amp drives the headphones, but wants the computer to drive the speakers.

try plugging it into the black one... or play pick a hole till it works.

I have polk amp that is powering 2 12' subs but itis flashing up with low amp/short light with a little buzz noise?


you must check your wiring from head unit back to subs even take subs out of box to make sure no wires are lose 99.9 of the time a wire has come lose which can be bad if your bridging sups as it changes ohms with 1 or 2 subs hope that helps oh and check volts from you batt and check volts at fuse spots and after fuse to make sure your geting at least 12 to 14 volts cheers i just had a ***** of a prob my subs worked but **** bass found out head unit sub out craped out

What amp do i need to power a Polk Audio db1040DVCin brigded connection, i only plan to run one sub, i want to bridge the sub for better sound quality, and i'm buying straight polk, what do i need


Hello oran1891,

OK, you don't bridge subs. You bridge amps, if they are capable of being bridged (not all are).

Bridging is a method of connecting the channels of a multi-channel amp in such a way that the amp delivers the output of 2 stereo channels into a single mono load.

The Polk DB1040DVC is a sub with dual 4ohm voice coils. You can wire the voice coils to present a final 2ohm load (parallel) or a final 8ohm load (series). The rated power range is 50-270 watts RMS. Since you can parallel the voice coils and have them present a 2ohm load to the amp, you are looking for an amp that provides a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 270 (round it up to 300) watts into a 2ohm load. The Rockford-Fosgate Punch 300.1 shown here for $170 seems tailor made for your Sub. If you can make do with less power and want to spend a little less money, the Orion Cobalt CO500.1 will deliver 250 watts RMS at 2ohms and you can buy it for $140. The punch is a better deal. If you decide to add another sub later, it will power them both with 150 watts each, a little low, but still decent. If you want a 2-channel bridgeable amp, I'd recommend the Kicker 08DX3002 shown here for $200. Note that in bridged mode, it is not stable at 2ohms, only down to 4ohms.

Hope this helps.

Best hook- up Polk psw10 sub woofer to yamaha rx-v663 receiver


You will not need to y connect your subwoofer, if you have only one RCA sub out on your receiver the other end of the RCA connector cable goes into the left input on most powered subs, there is no loss of signal, the option exist as some receiver do sport a double RCA sub out.

2nd Basslink, still no power-on. Please help


this is in response to the post below:

I just bot a basslink t and i wired it up and nothing it just keeps blowing the fues in the unit i got mine on ebay2.gif so i dont know if i can use the warranty dose anybody have an ida for me- britter623

I got a used basslink about a month ago and had the exact same prob kept blowing fuses...found out that the voice coil had blown on the infinity...so I had a brand new dvc polk 10 sittin in the closet, I swapped them out, put the polk in the place of the infinity sub, however, the magnet is much larger, hence, dual voice coil, it would rattle sooo much from the passive radiator against the magnet, also could not turn the gain up at all due to the rattle. I got the bright idea to build a "custom fiberglas enclosure for the polk and incorporate the infinity's parts(amp/control) I finished the box finally last night and hooked it up this morning, no power, no lights, no nothing! s@#%, F&@%! ANyone had a prob w/the amp not having the lights turn on, no power??? Hope that helps about your fuse blowing issue.
