Jamo subwoofer issues

Only recently, my sub woofer speaker has started to emit a continual buzz noise through the speaker once it is connected to the power supply, even if I do not switch the speaker on. It has never had an electrical surge as has always been connected to a good, working surge protector board.
Do you have any advice as to a possible solution?

How do you connect a Jamo sub250 to a Onkyo tx-sr343 av receiver

You simply connect a RCA type line cable from the subs line input to the dedicated socket on the back of the Onkyo.
When you run speaker set up it will set the subwoofer up.

How do I stop right satellite speaker from emitting a loud buzz once I plus it in to the sub woofer?

Your speaker may be blown. It doesn't have to be fiscally blown maybe you just burned or disaligned the coil/s try a different sub or check your amp it could be blown. Defective parts in an amp could emit weird sounds to your sub.

Why does our subwoofer all of a sudden start to buzz when we turn on our stereo/home theatre system on?

Well if it buzzes only for a couple minutes after turn on then it could be when the woofer starts pumping it produces pressure in the cabinet which creates a bonding motion that then closes the cracks, kinda like glue. Like blowing a balloon up in a box. The balloon is the pressure, OR Yes it could be your woofer is going bad. All speakers have voice coils. Tiny wire wrapped around a thin layer of cardboard then attached to the cone. This cone could be getting loose. But when the woofer heats up after a couple minutes it probably bonds the tiny wires so then the vibration or buzzing disappears. Over time woofers can die especially if it produces a lot of distortion, In a speakers life distortion kills and it doesn't matter how much power it can handle or how much money you spent on it.
Not all sub-woofers are alike. Some can handle the really low lows, and some can not. Check your settings too. Over time the vibration of the woofer will start to undo the glue, nails, screws, and even burn through the tiny wires in the voice coil. Oh and make your china crawl across the table... Have you been watching a lot more action movies? Some of the older woofers can't handle the newer digital deep bass frequencies... You may have to reconfigure your setup.

The subwoofer starts to make a loud thumping sound

Remove the signal source and power it on to see if the problem occurs without any input signal. The problem could be in the receiver and not the sub

You can use the sub-woofer and the speakers even without a supporting amplifier. The sub-woofer alone is powered with 167w per channel enough to power all the speakers. The DIN cables used to connect the sub-woofer to any source device like a computer, multi-media projector and others.

Subwoofer with speaker wire?

Back in the old days, subwoofers were powered by the voltage from your receiver, through speaker wire.
Nowadays, subwoofers have their own power, hence not having speaker wire connections anymore.
It's unlikely that you'll be able to connect your old subwoofer to your new receiver.
You'd need to get a new one, which if you don't mind buying closeout, can be found on eBay pretty cheap.
