How long should a powered sub woofer last? It's on 24/7, but is not abused with long, loud playing. Mostly regular TV.I have a Paradigm PS1000, about 10-12 years old.

There's no way of telling really! Even if something did go wrong there's no reason to say it couldn't be fixed very cheaply. It could last another 10 years or it could go wrong in the next few hours.
I will say one thing after 12 years of service and never off you certainly have had your monies worth!

How do I stop my Paradigm sub from humming and "burping?"


The amplifier that powers the sub is the source of your problems. Sounds like some power supply filter capacitors are failing.

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

I have a paradigm ps 1000.it powers on fine when i plug in the rca cable into thoe back of the sub into the low level input it humms supper loud. i tested my cable and used another one same thing. could...


It sounds like it has bad ground on the RCA input assembly, you should Ohm out the ground of the RCA jacks to see if they are all connected.
How about the sender side (the amplifier) ground?

When i turn the sub up it sounds like it's clipping or it is hitting something but if i hold the plastic ports on the back it seems to stop?


Your ports are vibrating. You need to seal them and this should fix this problem. I would use some dynomat around the outside edges of the port to prevent air leakage and to stop the vibration. You may use a bit of silicone on the outside edge of the port too for further protection from vibration and leaks. Good luck.

My paradigm ps1000 speaker does not turn on what's wrong ?


Check all fuses and plugs, if they are OK your power supply may have failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Ps-1200-A sub woofer will not power up


Probably a blown fuse. If there's not one on the face of the amp, pull the amp and check for one next to the power cable.

Sub thumps repeatedly


since it still thumps i suspect the speaker is ok, but i suspect you have an electronic problem in the amp. since it is a powered sup & has the ability to auto turn on it has electronic circuits inside, take it to a service center for an estimate
