Probably, or the woofer coil itself is experiencing a heat, volume or motion related short. Clean any dust or debris from the heat sink fins in the back. Make sure it has lots of space for cooling ventilation.

My sa-ma40kicks off after it plays for a few minutes


This sounds like a power supply problem. If it works after is sits or cools, check at the power supply for bad or disturbed solder connections, a lot of time if you look at the circuit board where the component comes through you will see a small ring in the middle of the solder.

The speaker will cut-out after it has been playing a while. It will click-off, like it is going into a power-save mode, then back on for a few seconds or minutes...then back off again.


Sounds like you have an heat sensitive semi-conductor that might be connected to a relay (the clicking thing). As it warms up it acts up!
You can pin it down by spraying suspected parts (while under power and when it acts up) with Servisol Freezer Spray. Only spray one part at a time. The faulty part will return to normal, till it warms up again, or you force it to by touching it with a soldering iron.
If nothing happens to the part you spray, it's working and test the next. Don't bother to spray non semiconductor parts.

The speaker is starting to buzz during the low


It probably buzzes all the time, you just notice it when it is outputting little volume. Check the cables for loose connections or replace them with other cable as a test.

Regarding Sony SA-WM250 Subwoofer


There is probably a bad solder joint or loose wire inside of the sub box. If you can, unplug the sub, take the screws out and remove the back to inspect the circuit board. A clean solder joint is pointed and shiny, with the solder evenly distributed in the hole. Also check to see if any plugs are loose. Plug in the audio input and then the power, but be very carefull not to touch anything inside the box while the cord is plugged in!! Play some bass at moderate volume so there is pretty constant sound. Now, take a screwdriver with an insulated handle and gently tap around on the connectors and circuit board. Tap a little harder if nothing happens, also tap in different areas to try to force the sound to cut out. You can try to locate where the bad connection may be by tapping lightly and zeroing in on the location. When and if you find the problem, you will need to solder the connection with a soldering iron. If you don't have a friend to help, try a local electronics store. Good luck!
