Do you have a habbit of turning your woofer up louder than listening to "clean" music? As you turn up the volume almost to the maximum, you should notice when the "clean" sounding music turns to "not clean" sounding music. Also known as "distortion". That "distortion" is actually your amplifiers inability to play louder than that point. When you turn up the volume past the point when the music sounds like it is "unclean" sounding music, your amplifier is pushing instructions to your woofer, but the woofer can't handle all the extra instructions and is damaging your woofer. And hense, over time, you can damage your woofer beyond repair.

If you can't find a loose connection, there are only 2 other possibilities. You wore out your amp. Or, more likely, you wore out your woofer. Or......Please, no......not that.......possibly both. Amps can be sent to the manufaturer for repair, but check craigslist before you spend on repair. I would focus on the woofer possibly being the worn piece. A high end audio shop will gladly take $15-30 from you to test your woofer and amp for you.Just tell them what you hear. They can also check all your connections for you.

Good luck.

How do I stop my Paradigm sub from humming and "burping?"


The amplifier that powers the sub is the source of your problems. Sounds like some power supply filter capacitors are failing.

Paradigm pdr80 no sound


If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

Paradigm 5.1 to 7.1 system


The Dolby curcuit in the Paradigm must be Dolby 7.1 or it will simply not be able to send the extra channel signals to the speakers. In otherwords you will not get the full 7.1 sound from two speakers added to a 5.1 amp.

PDR-10 subwoofer has no output. 120vac to unit is


I have exactly the same situation with my PDR-10. Paradigm techs were of no help, don't me to take it to a service centre which i did. Of course when it was there they plugged it in and it stayed on for a day and a half so no problem right? Get it home, nothing, plugged and replugged, got it on once but not for long. Opened up back, everything including fuse looks solid and fine....to naked eye anyhow.

PAradigm ps-1000 subwoofer


It turns out its most likely one of the resistors on the PCB on the amplifier plate.

My uncle has had the same problem and managed to replace the resistor and its working as normal now.
