Question about Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

JVC Sub-Woofer I have this JVC sub woofer that I bought at a yard sale for a few bucks. It has no place to plug in power, no lights on it and, its about the size of your average computer tower. Someone has apparently ripped the sticker off so I really dont know the model # sorry. On the inside of the box there are two maybe 6-8 inch woofers and wiring stuck inside on the back panel. Im sure that its part of some system. There are 4 speaker connects on the back and, each has its own + and - two on top are grey and blue..two on bottom are red and black. Are these ins..outs..can I even use this sub or no?any info at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

Well, sort of. It's part of a typical JVC shelf system. The gray and blue are for the left woofer and the red and black are for the right woofer. It's basically just two small "woofers" in a box. So unless you have a small amplifier that has 2 subwoofer outputs with a built in crossover, they are essentially useless.

Which model sub woofer can replace JVC SP-PW100?


The simplest thing would be a like-for-like replacement. Ebay or Craigslist would be good sources if the sub is out of production. There's one listed on Ebay UK for 39 sterilng. Item number 171423774447 - ends 16th Sept 2014

For new replacements the answer depends partly on how you connect and then partly on where you live. I'll deal with connections first...

The JVC has both high-level -speaker cable sockets- and low-level -phono/RCA- connections. Budget subs with both sets are getting rarer in the UK.

If you are connecting from an AV receiver with the low-level phono cable then the Tannoy SFX sub would do quite nicely. It's 99 sterilng at Richersounds.

For a sub with high and low level connections then the Wharfedale Diamond sub is about the cheapest in wide distribution. 170 sterilng at Tesco, 150 sterilng as an open box special at Superfi. Personally though, if I were considering spending 150+ on a sub I'd go the extra mile and plump for the BK Gemini at 215 sterilng direct from the manufacturer. You're getting 300+ sterilng performance because they cut out the middleman.

If you live in the US then there's a bit more choice. Have a look at Bestbuy. The Pioneer SW 8mk2 isn't bad at 159 dollars. There's the Theater Solutions SUB6F at 88 dollars if you just want cheap. Respected speakers brand Polk has the PSW 108 at 199 dollars

Check your owners manual.You will probably have to activate the sub woofer outlet,using the remote.This outlet can usually be programmed to do more than one function.

My Onkyo sub-woofer sounds like something is loose in it or rolling around...the sound is similar to shaking a can of spray paint. When I plug it in to the system it sounds crackly. If i turn the volume...


sub woofers are very powerful bass , with incredible sounding technology. your problem might be with the woofer wall around the circle. open the box and take the woofer out.Check if there is any tare over the corners of the cloth. sometimes there might be a crazy noise because of a little opening in the cloth caused by small tare.. if so better change it with a new 1 and make sure that the new cloth has guaranty

How to hookup


hi,
if u want to hook up the sub with ur av receiver the connect the sub woofer output of ur AVR to any one (left or right) input of ur sub woofer. then connect its power . set the frequency range between 90 and 120Hz. set the volume of sub woofer to 40% of its total. also check the av receives speaker setting. goto speaker setup and make ON the sub woofer out.

if want to connect the sub to a stereo amp without sub out. then connect the amps speaker line to the speaker input of sub woofer and connect the speaker out of sub to left and right speaker ( make sure to connect the red to red and black to black). set the volume and frequency as above
ok

Sub-Woofer blowing fuses.


You should open it up and look for a short. Usually, an exposed wire is touching metal. Wrap the wire with electrical tape and look for a ground wires that are loose. That will blow fuses too.

Subwoofer.......


Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.

This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.

The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".

If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.

If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
