I turn on my subwoofer and the volume is turned down and it makes a loud buzzing sound, and its not even hooked up to the amp, just pluged in. Thank you, Joel Arntsen


You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little! Please rate my solution!

The mid/bass is blown on my Sapphire SB bookshelfs and I cannot find replacement drivers. They are 5 inch 4 ohm but no manufacturer data. Any suggestions


http://www.parts-express.com/resources/woofer-selection-guide.cfm

Sort the guide by woofer size. Measure and match the hole opening, approximate volume of the speaker box and the -3db cutoff specified by Sapphire to something in the guide. Look for 4-ohm models, of course. Also, if you know the sensitivity rating (87db or similar), shoot for the same rating.

In order of importance -

DB match - get it wrong and the speaker will sound dark or bright.
Impedance match - get it wrong and the crossover frequency will not be correct.
Volume / F3 match - Will affect bass response.

As Sapphire is long gone, aftermarket replacements are your best bet. You might be suprised at how good a shot in the dark will sound. PE has a good return policy if you take care not to mess up the drivers during tryouts.

I am going crazy trying to solve this problem with my jbl eon passive speakers which are about 10 years old. all of a sudden they sound like they have no bass and too much topp. i have to take the top...


Hopefully the bass control was turned way down. Check to see that it is where you want it ti be. Otherwise, it could be a component in your receiver that blew. Do you have a sub woofer connected to you unit? Or were you forcing bass thought your midrange speakers? JBL's are great speakers! I have them as well. Love them, best sound output next to Bose of course! But the Home Theter speaker are only mid range speakers. Check your bass speaker! It might be the problem. Check wires! Check connections! If still having problems, you might need to take it to a shop... Sorry I couldn't be any better help! Good luck Mad Maria.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

How do I get more bass out of the system?


To get a better bass output from the sub. The best place is in the corner next to a wall. Doing that is called corner loading. Like you put a firecracker on your hand you might just get burned,buy if you close your hand...you will have to goto ER. And it is not a boomy sub. Small 5 1/4" woofers.You wand good bass? Take it back and buy klipche. Great sound and bass for a decent price.Or go all out and buy the Bob's Sunfire sub. and tick off all your neighbors. that little thing really pounds. I own two. When I played twister, My celing in my new home cracked. I got picts. If you want something simple like the 321,try Kef instant home therei <<spelling. Has a 10" sub.Bought for my father. Sounds great. Just 2speakers DVD/CD/Radio unit and sub.Simple one wire hook-up. and speakers.
Hope you are able to use this info.

Base too heavy for downstairs neighbors


Try a board with two screws through the front and one at the rear,set on the floor points down and then set your sub on top,this should help,also if you make 2or3 boards your bass should be tighter and not travel so much down to the flat below but will not go away,sorry but the only other thing you can do is buy ear plugs for your neighbours.
Hope this helps.

Speaker has no bass


Make sure there are no wires that could be crossed (i.e. positive and negative).  Also check the speaker for any tears below the cone in above the magnet.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

Hiss from the tweeter nothing from the sub


Trash. Don't run your bass through speakers not designed for it. Likewise (from personal experience) don't allow microphone feedback to get into consumer speakers. Bye-bye tweeters in either case.
