Hi, bigandwhite2

Just need a little more information on your problem.

  1. is it mains hum you are hearing.
  2. is it there when you unplug the signal feed into the sub
  3. do you hear it at all volume levels
If you could kindly get back to me with some more info, we can diagnose the problem.

regards'

PROBLEM WITH SUB WORKING ON A PIONEER VSXAX5I RECIEVER


The problem is in the powered sub, the buzzing sound is caused by one or more defective audio output ic's that drive the subwoofer directly, service is the only option to remedy the situation.

I have a Boston Acoustics VR-500 Subwoofer with a problem. As soon as anything is plugged into the line level RCA jacks, the subwoofer produces a loud buzz/hum. I have tried connecting it to the subwoofer...


I'm thinking you have an open shield ground on the RCA input side. Connecting speaker inputs possibly restores the ground. Try connecting the high level inputs then disconnect the remote end of the cables (floating the grounds).

Then get out an ohmmeter and find that open circuitor or bad solder joint between RCA ground and real ground in the speaker's amplifier. Or.... if speaker ground kills the hum and you want to use RCA Line Level input to the sub, just connect one minus speaker output on your source amp to one minus on the sub's amp.

Subwoofer problem


If you get your system up and running and hear an audible buzz or hum, the first culprit to look at is either the powered subwoofer or your reciever feed at the entry point to your system.

I have a 15" Boston Acoustics Subwoofer and it has started buzzing loudly, even when the receiver is turned off...what could that be?


If this woofer has it's own built in amp, it might be your rca cables, try moving them around. Anytime you have sound signal wires crossing power cords you must have them cross like T and not ll you get what I mean? just try keeping power away from sound. GOOD LUCK.

Thumping Subwoofer


Ive seen this problem in alot of audio setups in vehicles but most peeps dont know this is not a good thing and will cause damage to your woofers or amp. 99% of the time it turns out to be as you said that bad boy muting circuit. alot of these curcuits do use separate transitors or diodes as mute switches but most of them are directly from the Microproccessor. Only way to trouble shoot this is with a schematic and a good car stereo tech. Good luck
