Subwoofer cuts out

I have a Panasonic receiver that is attached to a set of Sony surround speakers. The subwoofer has cut out for years, and the only way I can seem to fix it is by unplugging the audio input from the subwoofer, tapping it on the input jack, and re-inserting it. It almost needs to get rid of static or something. I`ve recently purchased a new subwoofer (Precision Acoustics) - same problem. Cuts out after a day or so.

Suggestions?

    I have the same problem, except it will only work for about 5 minutes or so. I think the cable that sony provides is very cheap and can be faulty. I don't think that it's a problem with the receiver because it's consistently putting out the sound, it's just the metal contacts between the cable and the sub that's causing the cutting out. It could be the reverberations that vibrate the cable out of contact. I will try to get a higher quality audio cable which will fit more snug on the sub.

    There seems to be only 1 output from the subwoofer and this set did not come with any wires to attach to the receiver. the other speakers can use monster cable wires. what can I use to attach it.

Why won't my a102 speakers from jamo witch came


The Jamo speakers need an AV Receiver to drive them properly. The TV doesn't have the correct outputs nor does it have the power required.

The Jamo kit consists of a powered subwoofer ans 5 small surround speakers. Each surround speaker needs to be powered by the speaker output from an an AV Receiver. The subwoofer should also be connected to the receiver, but the connection is a phono/RCA lead from the receiver's "Sub Out" socket.

Your TV connects to the AV receiver via the Optical out.

Only subwoofer works at high volumes


It could be your receiver but you can try seeing if the Woofer has a input knob at the back, maybe this down, or maybe.if possible turn down the amount going to the woofer with your receiver.

My surround on my sony xplod came unglued. the sub is not blown or ripped and the surround isnt ripped either so i was trying to find a way to glue it back on without cutting the surround and having to...


Hi,
You could use any kind of silicon (white or black color). Also you could use Rubber Cement. Just apply it evenly & make sure you don't spill anything in your subwoofer's spider.
Hope this helps your inquiry. Have a blessed weekend.

My subs sound choppy


Sounds like your sub is "clipping". Clipping is when your speaker is trying to pull more power than the power supply. (head unit, amp) If it sounds good at a low volume and choppy at high volume, supply it with more power. Bigger amp. If it sounds choppy all the time, push gently on the middle of the speaker. It should go back and forth smoothly. If it feels rough, you have blown the coil. Replacing the speaker is the fix for that.

My rca opal m4204 wont turn on


We bought a while back a surround sound system with a SONY Dolby Digital FM Stero FM/AM Receiver STR SE501, a small subwoofer and small centerband spearker. We recently upgraded to two better and larger submwoofer and centerband speark: ICON VC25 CENTER SPEAKER (SN 100987108520533 SW-350 SUBWOOFER (SN 101043809321322 Problem we are having is, when we turn the TV on in the morning, about 10 minutes, we hear a click noise in the receiver, a pop loise in the subwoofer, and the it cuts of the speark. It with click again, cuting the spearker back on, then do it agian and cut them off. It seems once it does this a few times, and comes back on, it stays on the remainder of the day. What is the problem? Do we need to make an adjustment to the receiver, because of the upgrade. We original had moster cables. Do we need to replace them? Hope you can help. Tony (arod13tb@yahoo.com)

I have a subwoofer with standard speaker wire connection, how to I attach to a receiver with a subwoofer cable?


The Subwoofer is Likely Passive....meaning no amplifier is within the enclosure itself....the incompatible connectors mean you cannot connect the subwoofer itself to your surround sound system.

look for a Suitable stand-alone (1 Channel) Amplifer with sufficent power.....connect the RCA Imputs (subwoofer cable) to the Recievers RCA subwoofer output....then connect the amplifier's output to the the wire going into the subwoofer enclosure....if there is a plastic connector simply cut it off and strip the wires down a sufficent lenght....then secure the wires to the output of the amplifier.

if you do this make sure you know the ohm rating of the subwoofer and the minimum ohm rating of the amplifier your using.

My panasonic SC-AK87 dolby prologic, surround mode and 5.1 chanel didn't work. Just radio fm can work/ Help me!


the out put is common to all channels, only that sounds are thickened or lighted by adding components like capacitors and resistors.
open your set and check for a dry joint on the channel which is not working
dont forget to check the cables, not having cuts

5.1 Surround Sound Cutting Out


HI,
Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure,
only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.

Replacing a Surround Sound System Receiver


the difference is the "same speaker connections"
the front and rear will connect the same but the subwoofer is amplified by the HT75 , and the HE75 does not have an internal amp for the subwoofer speaker , only a "pre output"(has to be amplified)

Speaker wire


Use the same gauge that is supplied for the rear. Probably 24 gauge.Do it with the power off. If the wires touch with the power on the rear output IC will blow. Good Luck
