Question about Mordaunt Short MS-308 Subwoofer

1 Answer

Subwoofer not working. Had a problem when my wife ran over the cord to the back of the subwoofer with the vacuum and yanked the line out of the subwoofer. This tore the male end of the audio in line which i've replaced. However, the subwoofer when turned on makes a low hum followed by a pop.....regardless of whether the audio cord is plugged back in or not. Have tried different input location, but sub responds the same no matter the input. It also plays no sound from the source when the line is plugged in. Help

How do i set up my subwoofer sawm40


Sounds like you have a passive subwoofer, you run speaker wire from 'front speaker receiver out' to the subwoofer, the 'subwoofer out' to your front speakers. Seem like your sub has a crossover that grabs the bass frequencies and passes off the rest to the front speakers

If you have a 'subwoofer line out' on your reciever and a 'line in' on you subwoofer then just use that single wire, this would be for a powered sub. You know that you have a powered sub if your sub has a power cord attached to it.

Are you using the Creative speaker test program? It usually has a picture of a generic layout of a pc system, with the speakers around it, showing a speaker for each that you should have plugged in. There should be a test button that will play a sound through each speaker. If a sound plays from your center speaker when the subwoofer picture is lit up then you may have a cord plugged in incorrectly on either the subwoofer or on the back of the soundcard. I've ran into this many times.
The best way to set up surround sound is to get your speakers placed or mounted on the wall, then run one wire at a time into the subwoofer, to ensure that the front left is hooked into the subwoofer in the front left, front right into front right, etc. Then once the speakers are hooked into the subwoofer start running the outputs from the subwooofer one at a time into the sound card. After each connection run the test program and watch the pictures light up as the sound plays, and make sure that the speaker playing sound in your place is the same speaker that is lit up on the test program.
I hope that helps, otherwise the amp is probably bad. Let me know if you need more help.

We have a jvc home theater surround sound system and the subwoofer just stopped working. the model number for the sub is sp-pwc30 and we want to just replace the subwoofer any ideas how to get one?


Depending of the type of Subwoofer that required your system.

A) Amplified Subwoofer. (With 110volts A.C. cord attached to the sub)
The subwoofer electronics circuit needs repair or change.
You will find a compatible subwoofer for this type of subwoofer in audio appliance stores.

B)Not amplified Subwoofer (No 110volts A.C. cord attached to the sub)

Bring your sound system to a technician to have the soldering remaked to the devices bolted on the main heatsink.
And have the Subwoofer checked too.

This type of subwoofer can mostly be buy in kit with the satellites speakers.
And need to match thee impedance of the output of your system.

Search for ( 4 ohm or 6 ohm 8 ohm ) near the Sub outlet behind your system.

1) Check your power outet - make sure you have power.
2) Check the cord going to sub-woofer, check power strip if using one, we want to make sure you have power going to the subwoofer.
3) If so check to see if you have a fuse installed in the subwoofer, replace if needed.
4) Make sure your audio wires are attached to subwoofer, inspect audio wire, if it is old wire then replace.
5) Trace your wire back to your system make sure it is connected to the Subwoofer terminal.
6) Check your menu options on your audio system, make sure the subwoofer is enabled.

Buzzing sound from woofer when I plug in


If the woofer works fine when plugged into any other port, I would say that you have a connector on the receiver that has a loose connection or possibly a cold solder joint (poor or broken solder joint). RCA jacks can be stressed quite a lot especially if you use cables that have very tight connectors. The female RCA jack gets wiggled or twisted when trying to remove a cable and this causes solder joints to crack. I would have a look at that connector on the receiver..

Subwoofer volume and sound


i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy setup..so i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..
