Micropro 2000 has power but has no sound even for test tones. No test tones. What is it?

This could be either a source or a sub problem.

The missing piece to this puzzle is the source identity and setup. Is IT set up correctly for a subwoofer?

If you want to test the sub by itself just temporarily feed one of your FRONT speaker outputs directly to its Speaker IN connectors.

... Or ANY device or source you have can be directly connected to its RCA Line In. BE WARNED - IF IT WORKS IT WILL BE LOUD

I unplugged my rca cables from micropro 4000 and it made a loud boom. Now it no longer puts out any bass. I pushed on the sub and it feels good. The sub powers on just no bass.

Open the case and check the resistance value of the actual speaker - should be around 8 ohms. If it doesn't get a reading, then it's bad.

When i flip the turn signal up or down i get a buzzing noise, also when on the turn light is dim. What might it be?

Great question! First the turn signal. That almost sounds like a relay or your switch may be going bad. The relay can be tested by useing a simple test light found a any auto part store. Now for the head lights. Sorry to tell you but it sounds to me like your alternater may not be produceing the power that your truck needs. Have the alternator tested. It may need to be replaced.

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.

Loud buzzing from Kef PSW1000 Subwoofer

yes. A good idea. Kill power to the sub, then unplug and remove everything from the sub. go ahead and plug it in again and check for buzzzz.
That is test one. if you have buzz still, its the sub assembly. bad luck, but not impossible. If the buzz is gone its one of the signals to the sub. They can produce a buzzz without any signal coming from your stereo equipment. Replace the feed line, enjoy! BTW...Kef sure does sound clean. good choice.

Generator runs great but doesn't produce any power

There is a electronic module that senses load current that pulls the throttle up for high RPM. Fine the module and look it over, you may need to replace it.

Turn signal wont turn off by itself

There is NO auto signal cancel device on the Valkyrie. You must set up an auto system in your own head connected to your left thumb.
