Poor design, the amps that are screwed to the heat sink are below a transistor which is catching all the heat,heat rises and changes the bias of the transistor so high it causes runway in circuits that results into failure also the amplifiers are sealed with no air flow, this can't be good.Maybe if they put air vents or remove the cover to panel then the heat will have somewhere to go instead of just building up inside.If this problem is not fixed a replacement is going to fail too.good price bad design.

Probably the Digital Amplifier board has had a melt down. Mine did after only 14 months of use. This board is currently unavailable from JBL although they are glad to sell this board in combination with the board it is mounted on for about $125 dollars.
Then it will probably fail in the same manner after a time.
What happened to JBL quality???

How do i connect my subwoofer to my home theater


Easy. Your home theatre amp will have a sub or LFE output ( RCA plug ). You simply connect this output to the input ( usually the left side, or use a Y splitter and use left and right inputs, or the LFE input if your sub has it ). Then, you must turn the sub on in your recievers setup menu, and your sub should work.

I got a jbl sub 136 200 watts subwoofer , thinking about repairing so i put new speaker in still messed up , looks like circuit board may be toast , is it worth repairing and where can i get parts


Have you checked the Impedence of the old speaker. If you can measure to below 8ohms you need not replace the speaker. Check with proper LFe signal at input of your amp. Also check for power indications before going further.

I have a JBL TLX CSS-SUB1 sub at the back are where you connect the speaker wires to the receiver but i don't know witch wire goes in what? i have no clue


The connection on the receiver would be the sub woofer out. Not a sub woofer out LFE, a sub woofer out with speaker wire connection. From there you plug it in to the top section of the available terminals on the sub you are referring to (speaker level input). One in positive and the other in negative matching what you did on the receiver with correct ends. The speaker connections underneath the top connections is for additional speakers like surrounds to be able to be connected directly to the sub woofer speaker level out for sound. This of course would be for an older receiver connection. I do not think it is possible to convert this connection to an LFE and have it work properly. If the receiver does not have sub woofer speaker connection and only a RCA out then you can try to connect both rear speaker connections from the receiver to the speaker level inputs on the sub and then connect your rear speakers to the speaker level output on the sub to power them. This is an active sub woofer but for some reason they made it connect as if it was passive. I am not sure if this sub is designed for really low frequencies required for movie or if it is better for music.

Sony SW no sound


does this sub have an LFE output? if so, connect that to the LFE input on the reciever and make sure it is set up properly in the set up menu in speaker configuration. if the sub has speaker line input outputs, connect speakers to input of sub and out of sub to amp/recvr

I plug in small speaker but only faint sound come out are the speaker output also amplfied pb10 230


Depends on what, if anything, is connected to the High Level speaker inputs. The High Level outputs only pass on what is being fed to the Sub from your amplifier or receiver. The sub's internal amp is for its use ONLY.

If you're using the Sub's internal amplifier and feeding it the LFE or Subwoofer Line Level output of your amp or receiver via RCA cables, I'd be surprised if anything is present at the speaker terminals on the sub. It shouldn't be.

JBL d110 /w no sound output


There is a standby indication that activates after 10-15 minutes without any input signal. I suspect that might be what the red light is telling you - no signal.

Loud hum from a loosened cable is normal as hum usually means there's an ungrounded connection somewhere acting as an antenna and the amp is doing its job to amplify what it thinks is a signal, in this case 60hz stray ac current is being sensed nearby. It's a good sign that you get hum from the sub because that means the amp is alive.

Avoid manipulating cable connections with the Sub or Receiver turned on as you could introduce a static spike that could harm any connected equipment.

Are you certain a bass signal is making it into the sub? The complexities of modern AV receivers vary in how you configure them to direct LFE to a sub. Bone up on that end of the chain.

Or, just hang a CD player on the Inputs of the sub and play something with a reassonable amount of Low Frequencies.

>>>> Be advised that this way of testing has NO VOLUME CONTROL because amps without volume controls always operate at maximum gain, relying on your external controls to attentuate it (hence, the loud hum from a loose cable); so choose a track that eases into the loud parts with some quiet parts up front and BE READY TO PAUSE THE PROGRAM AT ANY SIGNS OF STRESS. <<<<

A living sub will produce only muffled rumble in the absence of other speakers producing the higher frequencies which carry the intelligence of the signal. If that works, back to the receiver for settings. If not... sigh.

-----

For hum problems, even those you cause yourself:

Disconnect all inputs to see if that helps. If it goes away start with the signal cables and add in things until it comes back.

Sometimes the reversing the orientation of the AC plug can help with hum. Or it could be something like a loose or high resistance connection internal to the sub. Good luck.
