Make sure that your amp is putting out proper signal to the sub woofer.

If the feed from the amp is okay, the power amp and our the power supply in the sub woofer may have become defective. This will require to be serviced.

Encountered same problem. The internal switched power supply consists of 3 parts : +12V(4W), -12V(4W) and +80V (500W). The + 12V circuit supllies the internal amplifier as well as an extra protection circuit (totaling about 4W). This circuit extracts a powerpeak when turned on. This powerpeak is somethimes to high for the +12 V power supply. Rather than soldering on the power supply board, I introduced an extra swithed power supply of 12V, 7W (from a Braun-beard trimmer !). The on board +12V enables the extra supply by means of an optocoupler and a Triac.

    Could you please explain this in greater detail? I have the same dreaded clicking PV1 and doesn't hold much hope for its resurrection with the local distributor as I brought mine over from overseas when I relocated. Any help would be much appreciated!!

On my Technics SU-G90 where do I connect the subwoofer

Some amps have a single RCA socket for a powered sub. If it has not got one of these then the amp has no output for a powered sub. If so then you can only use a none powered subwoofer, which will connect via the speakers of the amp, see the subwoofer manual for how to do this.

Cant get subwoofer to work on my sony amp. speaker works on other ports. ive turned on subwoofer port and up the level to max but no sound nothing.

Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and change will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

A specific model of both would help in the diagnosis. Most modern AVR

PV 2600, couple years old, light usage. Connected to two PV SP3K speakers. One channel started to cutout somewhat but not all the way, Switched a few input cables, swapped L&R. Then whole amp shutdown....


I've worked on similar units.
Things I'd check first :
Dust in the unit.
Weak solder connections /crusty debris stuff on the input jacks or output terminals
Any flex cables soldered in tend to be a problem on peavey amps I resolder all those contacts.
Checking the amp w/o a load IS NOT a good suggestion.
What style output connections are you using?
1/4 inch, binding post, or Neutrik style?

Sony AMP/Subwoofer Problem

It is probably the tweeter, inside the Sub. it's the small ceramic disk between the cone magnet, and the speaker. id this thing is cracked or broken, this will cause the problem. if this is not it, then it is a problem with something in the wiring, and the only way to rectify it is to buy a new sub. Sorry due :(
