Question about Kenwood KDC-X590 CD Player
My powered subwoofer won't work. It used to put out sound and turn on fine, but then it started to go in and out depending on its mood. Now it puts out no sound, and does not turn on. I have ruled out wiring. I have ruled out the subwoofer "ON" setting on the deck. I have ruled out a problem with the powered sub. What would cause it to go in and out from day to day and then suddenly stop working altogether? My deck also has problems with its display. It also went in and out for awhile and then finally quit. I still get sound from my speakers, and everything functions normally, (except for the powered sub). I don't think the problems are related but maybe they are?
This problem has many causes... but try this one... often when a faulty subwoofer speaker is to blame this test will tell you. Connect another speaker(any speaker) temp to check if there is audio still to the sub. Keep the levels down to ensure you dont go on a trail of destruction.
The spider wires from terminals on the speaker to the cone may be intermittent. I have seen this a lot on all types and makes of subwoofer driver!! This a common failure and can often be detected by tapping the speaker cone when it does the cut out thing. If it starts up, and they often do..., then you probably have intermittent spider wiring to the cone. A GOOD “Hi Fi speaker repair dood” can help here and replace the spider wires for you and save the expense of replacing the driver.
This is just one solution to the problem you are having.... there are many more..... and you should try this FixYa and see what happens. If you cant tell WTF then hit me back up here again. I work WITH YOU, to get the problem out for you.
If it sorted what you suspected... then rate me !FixYa!!.... Thanx
