Question about Polk Audio PSW300 Speaker

Open Question

Polk PSW300 subwoofer. Worked fine a few years ago, then mysteriously the sound stopped...lights turn on. Haven't attempted an online fix yet or contacted Polk. Probably too late/too old but if anyone has a cheap fix, I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

SOURCE: Optimum set up for Polk Audio PSW 10?

Run 2 RCA cables from the two Purple connections on your Receiver (Labled "PRE OUT SUBWOOFER") to the Red and White connectors on the back of your Sub (it does not matter which Purple connecter you plug into either the Red and White)

Set the volume control on the Sub to about 75%, and keep the power switch in the "ON AUTO" position. To set the Low Pass value, look at the back of one of the front speakers in your setup, and note its frequency range (will look something like 100Hz - 17kHz). Set the Low Pass at a value slightly higher than the low value on the back of your surround speakers.

To set the phase switch, stand in the middle of the room with some music on (something with some bass, but not over the top bass) and have someone switch between 0 Deg and 180 Deg. Listen for which setting sounds "Louder and Fuller". This is the one you want. You will need to do this each time you move the Sub, as its position may change its phase in relation to the rest of your system.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: DSW PRO 600 not getting signal from receiver. Why?

You don't name the electronics, which can be the source of the problem. See #3.

1. If you suspect the cable why don't you just swap in another RCA cable? BTW: there's no such thing as a "subwoofer" cable. Monster makes their money on those beliefs. Cables don't wear out but they can go bad if one or more conductors fails. Oxides devolp at either end which can inhibit conductivity. Remove each end and reinsert it with a twisting motion.

2. Maybe. You need to ensure the sub is defined. Run speaker level check. If no sound at the sub, prove the LFE/sub channel has output by running the RCA cable to a recorder or your TV (low volume). If there's no signal, duh, no speaker will work with it.

3. Mmm, not if it's exhibiting the same problem as the old one and the Polk 450. Have you looked at the setting of the Standby/Auto/On Switch? And the Power Mode LED's? Red is bad.

You can prove the sub pre-output works by running an RCA cable from it to the input of a tape deck, TV or any other device that accepts Line In and will either display it or play it. Test it on VERY LOW volume at the receiving device.

Sub-woofer driver rattle/buzz.


Bad news! It sounds like the coil is rubbing inside the magnet of the speaker! There's no cure, when the cone is warped it it knackers it up. Had the same problem some years ago with a Wharfedale speaker. Someone told me you can hit it on the part where the cone joins the magnet -with a hammer!
Anyway it didn't make a bit of difference! And the speaker was chucked.

this may be a dumb question but have you turned up the signal. there should be a dial on the back that you can turn the power up. power light on, signal passing threw, the only other thing it can be is the built in amp itself may be dead.

I had this problem a few years back.

It's not a physical problem, it sounds like a bad relay, but a few other things were fixed when I sent it in for repair

It's not a simple fix, the amplifier in the subwoofer will need to be fixed by a knowledgable technician who has access to a schematic

Subwoofer not powering up


I could either be the sub or the main unit. The main unit actually sends a signal to the sub to turn it on so if that circuit is bad in the main unit the sub is never going to come on. I've also seen bad cables (You'd be amazed at how stubborn people can be when din connectors don't cooperate).
