Jm labs sw 900

I have a JM Labs SW 900 and when it is pushed it crackles. Does this mean the speaker is likely blown? If so what is the best route to rectify the problem? Please email me at bkroobnzai@tim-privette.com

What you may be hearing is the speaker's guts bottoming out as it attempts to keep up with the amplifier, which may be clipping - a potential fatal thing to do to any speaker.

Maybe you should turn the volume down or run through the volume setup again and make the subwoofer equal in loudness to the other speakers and avoid excessive bass boost.

How to hook up psw350 polkaudio powered subwoofer


A powered subwoofer is fed the sw line output provided by the receiver. If lacking, then the woofer might have connections to it from the speaker outputs of your receiver.

Connect them in phase, make sure your sw is in phase with other speakers and balance the sw output.

SW-910, blown speaker or ? makes rattle/buzz sound. replace speaker and/or change to passive type sw?


i would suggest replacing it rather than fixing. The cost of the repair will be about the same.
if you went to a passive sub/seperate power amp setup you could get a much higher quality unit, but it would cost you considerably more cash.

If I understand you, you're observing the speaker cone moving in one direction without any input. That would say the internal amp is malfunctioning and pushing DC to the speaker. Beyond that I can't say, but it is endangering the driver.

I have a pair of JM lab Electra 905 speakers, running through a DNM amp and power amps. When powered up, the left speaker makes a very loud humming noise. This has happened recently. I haven't changed...


Hello
Switch on your amp, keep its volue down to extreme low, and listen if there is still hum through the left channel or not. If still there is hum, the left side power amplifier section inside the amp;ifier is faulty. If htere is no hum at this state, hum enters thorugh the audio input terminal, and the input wires must be checked for open sheild connection. OK.

I only get sound out of i speaker and the sub with Ipod through 3.5 mm jack


HI,
try an old walkman on that patch cord to diagnose if its the patch cord or the Ipod. If you get all channels on the walkman, then its the patch cord for sure, they have them at radio shack. If it still does it it may be a setting within the reciever. begin cycling through your dolby DTS settings, try all of them, might just have to run it in stereo due to a decoding error between the two. or try to re-record the problematic songs from a different mp3 source off the internet.

Sw 300 powered sub woofer


It sounds like your subwoofer acts as a receiver in its own right. Many low-budget home theater systems act this way, and it may in fact have a Dolby Pro Logic II encoder in it. Your best bet is to hook up either the speakers it came with, or purchase speakers from your local audio visual store. Check its power rating per speaker (in watts) in your manual, and purchase speakers that are rated for it.

The "red and white" input you mention are RCA connectors, and should allow you to connect a source to your system. If you have any more specific questions, please post them here.
