The simplest thing would be a like-for-like replacement. Ebay or Craigslist would be good sources if the sub is out of production. There's one listed on Ebay UK for 39 sterilng. Item number 171423774447 - ends 16th Sept 2014
For new replacements the answer depends partly on how you connect and then partly on where you live. I'll deal with connections first...
The JVC has both high-level -speaker cable sockets- and low-level -phono/RCA- connections. Budget subs with both sets are getting rarer in the UK.
If you are connecting from an AV receiver with the low-level phono cable then the Tannoy SFX sub would do quite nicely. It's 99 sterilng at Richersounds.
For a sub with high and low level connections then the Wharfedale Diamond sub is about the cheapest in wide distribution. 170 sterilng at Tesco, 150 sterilng as an open box special at Superfi. Personally though, if I were considering spending 150+ on a sub I'd go the extra mile and plump for the BK Gemini at 215 sterilng direct from the manufacturer. You're getting 300+ sterilng performance because they cut out the middleman.
If you live in the US then there's a bit more choice. Have a look at Bestbuy. The Pioneer SW 8mk2 isn't bad at 159 dollars. There's the Theater Solutions SUB6F at 88 dollars if you just want cheap. Respected speakers brand Polk has the PSW 108 at 199 dollars
Make sure its not set to Auto. Also check for a fuse in the back. Unplug the amp side and with the sub plugged in touch the RCA. You should hear noise from sub. Try this last. Some may say this is not good for the sub. Im in the business and never have seen it cause a problem
Where was it sitting before it was moved? Did it have it have more ventilation and keep cooler? This sub has a powerful amplifier in it. If it got moved to an area that restricts air circulation around the sub more it is possibly overheating and causing fuses to blow. Put a fan on it and make sure it is on a hard surface or up off the carpet at least to keep the bottom side cool as well. Also when one moves a speaker it's often to put it into a more convenient area to be able to turn it up louder with less disturbance to others. This will draw more power and create more heat within the amplifier than it's previous location. If this is so keep it as cool as you can and turn it down every so often to give the amp a rest. The key here is to keep it cool as you can. One thing you never want to do is put a higher rated fuse in than the unit is rated for. Always use factory recommend fuse rating.
your sub woofer has only one input to make it work. plug in your rca cables into the back of the sub woofer and the other end into the audio out or subwoofer out put on the back of your surround system.
also has 2 speaker inputs so you can expand your speaker setup. plug thos in and you can hook up 2 speakers to th output on the back of the sub.
Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.
This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.
The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".
If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.
If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
