Sounds like a loose connection or a blown speaker. I would try just playing around with the wires to see if you can make it pop, if so, the wire you were messing with is the most likely culprit. Also, verify the sub cone has no damage or cracks. I am betting it i a bad connection or a loose wire.

My powered subwoofer no longer works through the receiver


if you have your front and centers set to 'small' you want your Bass out to be subwoofer only, and the rca jack labeled 'sub out' is the only place to connect your sub to if you want to control the frequencies with your reciever. I dont know the brand of your sub, or the inputs on the back of it to advise you where to connect, but it sounds like it worked for you at one time, but suddenly it does not

Can I use my Logitech x-230 speakers without the sub-woofer? My sub-woofer got busted!! Any suggestions?Perfectly good speakers!


i had the same problem with same speaker system. the amp for this system is inside the bass speaker. if your amp is still working but your bass speaker is not you could cut the wires to that speaker making sure the cut wires do not short out. i was quoted more to repair them than it was to buy a new set. but i wont be buying logitech again as ive had two lots fail.

Buzzing noise z4 logitech speakers


Hi Haley,
I also enjoy good Music and excellent sound from my speakers that i have and know what you going through. There is two problems that i see here. One is that your bass speakers is dying on you from the excess bass that has been exerted throught it or have you tried lowering the adjusting bass from the contol panel?
Try adjusting the bass and if that doesnt work aleast you've identified your problem.
Thanks Haley for using Fixya.Good Luck.

Sub woofer got weak


If there is an adjustment, turn up the subwoofer volume. After you started shaking the house somebody may have adjusted it for you.
Check your computer control panels volume too, cause they may have a subwoofer volume there too.
If there is an equalizer (software) then make sure the low frequencies are set properly (middle or above). Check for this in your computer audio control panels.

If there is no adjustment anywhere, take it back, 'cause it is busted. If it is too late to take it back, sent it to logitech for repair under warranty. If it is too late for that, go buy a new one.

I use the HT-391 in my home office video studio not sold anymore but it handles 3 PCs giving them 140w of power, plus 6" active power sub has excellent bass. The wireless remote can be programmed with Radio Shack 8-in-one LCD Universal Remote.
the HT-3917 is small but don't let the size fool you. It has 100w of power still not bad for small places.

For what you need to control you're better off getting the Z-5500.

Z-5500 Digital made by Logitech has 5.1 Dolby Digital 505w
Supports up to 6 audio inputs devices at the same time. Remote controls everything you want. 5 mini speakers 10" power sub woofer. with wireless remote control. $399

No sound from my logitech z4 subwoofer


Is there sound coming from the 2 speakers?

Subwoofers are designed to only play bass, you shouldnt hear much acoustic sound coming from it at all.

The best way to test that is to play a song with a good amount of low bass, see if you hear it coming from the woofer, or can you feel the woofer vibrate?

If there is a hole in the side of the woofer box, when you are playing the song is there any air coming out of that hole to the bass line beat?

I dont know how you have your wiring set up, but if it still isnt working please check to make sure that you have the wiring plugged in properly.

If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know. I hope this fixes your problem.

Subwoofer help


hard to tell whats causing this .Just curious make sure speaker wires going to subs are POLARIZED meaning positive from amp is with positive at woofer and NEGATIVE is with negative at woofer.When these are crossed and when volume is raised you will hear the bass cancell each other out..
