Question about Sub-Zero 632 / S

1 Answer

While my model 632 cools fine, it does make a low frequency surging sound. This sound resonates throughout the house and is quite noticeable in some rooms while not heard at all in others. One time the compressor made a loud roaring sound...I turned it off and then back on the next day. The loud noise was gone, but the surging sound remained. Is this a mechanical problem or a coolant level problem?

This is not a problem with the unit but the unit AND your floor,the resonance is amplified by your flooring and can be reduced by putting sound deadening pads under the feet.foam/felt work best.
Did you load up the unit prior to the loud roaring noise?? because the noise was probably the compresor at the end of the freezing cycle..

My wine cooler is making a loud humming noise. It still cools fine, but you can hear it throughout the house now.


possibly the compressor is running harder due to either being low on freon or the condensor coils are dirty not letting the heat to be released causing the the compressor itself to overheat.

ProMonitor 800 Resonance


The Denon amp is not powerful enough, when bass notes are reached it draws more power from the amp when producing the low end and clipping will result if the power curve falls short.

Why can humans only hear sounds with a frequency of 20,000hz


My understanding is that various hair cells in the cochlea resonate when excited by certain frequencies of sound. So that in a sense, your ear is a complex vocoder of sorts. I don't know all that much about the physiology of sound, but there are many interesting ecological aspects (see works by A. Bregman).

If you've studied differential equations or electrical circuits, then you'll know thatphysical systems have an associated frequency response (they only respond to certain frequencies or frequency ranges). I'm not sure how much is physical response, and how much the brain filters out. If humans could hear to 0 Hz, though, for example, we would be bombarded by useless low frequency noises all around us. From an evolutionary standpoint, 20Hz-20kHz, seems to cover most of the useful noises to survive, communicate, and procreate.

My bass plays on my subs,but the words dont play throughout my car,i have an amp pushing my mids and highs,and the rca jacks are running to the front side on the back of the unit,whats the problem.I...


The amps frequency setting is on LP (low pass) only playing bass so you have to put it on FR( Full Range) all frequency's and you'll get your sound back.

Audio settings for pioneer DEH-P3100UB


The q1w and all that- is a way to fine tune your eq settings: the q means "frequency" the w means wide and the n means narrow. if you choose to boost your lows at 125 hz which is a low midbass the q selection you choose will focus more on the frequencies very close(narow) to that frequency. if you choose a w setting it will spread the boost to frequencies further away(wider) from the center frequency(125hz) Dink around with it and you will notice the way it contours the sound a little. The different numbers associated with the lows mids or highs are the frequencies that you want to boost when you're adjusting your sound-example if you turn up the bass and it starts distorting your speakers = go into settings 2 and change the "lows" Q to a higher frequency(change 80 hz to 125hz) and that way it wont muddy up your sound quite as bad if at all

Sound doesn't work on television. Worked fine yesterday and doesn't work today. I can hear sound from the cable box going to my surround sound, however nothing to the television. I know the power went...


Sounds like there was a power surge that caused the audio processor in the TV to go out. This is fixed by replacing the main board.

The power supply board in the TV should also be checked as that could have been damaged as well. These are usually the first to go out from a power surge. Get a good surge protector to help prevent this in the future.

Housing Vibration During Certain Frequencies (At Normal Volumes)


Me again. I removed the rear plastic housing of my TV a few weeks ago on a hunch that the resonance frequency of the two speakers were matching that of the plastic rear housing. Yep. Once I removed the plastic housing (about 8 screws), all speaker vibrations ceased. It's been fine ever since. However, I don't particularly care to have the back off of it, although I see no high voltage parts like a yoke, etc. sticking out or within reach. It's also not mounted to a wall and is in a position where folks can't easily get there hands into the back. I'd still write to the CEO of Samsung since this is a wider problem that they should address without charging a tech fee.

All TV's in house failing, a few at a time


Hey PNorris,

If multiple electronic devices are failing in your home all at once, I would probably first have to ask if your home recently experienced an electrical storm or major power surge of any kind.

Normally the effects of such large-scale surges are immediately noticeable - TV's and other major electronic devices may fail to turn on, fuses may be blown or circuit breakers tripped, and in some cases electrical wiring may be melted.

If nothing like this has happened recently, low-level power surges may still be a potential cause of this problem. When the motor from any large appliance (such as an air conditioner or refrigerator) turns on or off, it often diverts power to and from other electronic devices using the same circuits. This fluctuation in electrical current may result in low-level power surges to every connected device. While not immediately noticeable, these low-level surges can often cause the eventual failure of (and gradually degrading quality in) many audio/video components.

Typically, the easiest way to avoid situations like this is to make sure that outlets are not overloaded and surge protectors are used with every major electrical device in your home. For older homes however, replacing the house's wiring may be necessary. Homes that were originally built at the turn of the 20th century may not always have wiring capable of supporting the electrical needs of many modern appliances.

Ultimately, this means that in addition to contacting your local TV repair facility, you may want to also speak with an electrician. This is probably the best way to determine whether or not power surges have caused these failures, and may give you a better idea how to proceed.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
