Most likely the sub has the crossover in it, most likely the 2 input cables from whatever device you want to play through the system will plug into the sub then the 2 speaker cables will come out of the sub and go to the speakers, just be sure to have everything connected into and out of the sub and make sure the power cords for the speakers and sub are plugged in, I am assuming this is a self powered system wich means the amplifiers are built into the speakers and sub.

Tip

Using Proper Speaker Polarity


Sound system speakers have standard polarity which is indicated either with a "+" or a "-", or with Red and Black colors near the speaker terminals. This same polarity marking is also found on the sound system amplifier section. Most speaker cable has a polarity indication; either color coded, or a physical difference in the wires. Reversed polarity results an obvious decrease in bass, and a hollow sound in the mid range frequencies. If your speaker cable has no obvious polarity indication, you can check the polarity as follows; connect a 9V battery to each speaker cable for no more than about a second; long enough to see the woofer cone move. When the + battery terminal is connected to the + speaker lead, the woofer cone will move out. When you have this situation, label the positive speaker lead, either with tape, or by tying that wire in a simple knot. Make sure both cables are checked.

Is there a replacement amp for my jbl SCS180.6S subwoofer? I tested the speaker and it's fine. I also tested the output from the stereo and it is also fine. When the sub is turned on, there is a b


No you can't! I should contact JBL for the location of the part. Transformers are safety parts and should only be replaced by the same part or those approved for use by the maker of the unit.

Hi, what causes hums from speaker is when there is no ground shield from either the power supply or from the cable you plugged into the socket from the power supply.

So you will need to check that out and replace untrusted cables for connection..

If after doing this troubleshooting exercise, you will now need to test the speaker with another set to be sure the humming sound is not coming from there.

I guess that will Do.

Have a nice day...

Cant get subwoffer apart took out 2 screws and moved lach other side still wont come off Help???


After you swivel the center latch, press down on the two plastic latches on either end (in the same crack) with a flat head screwdriver. Make sure you remove the knobs used to adjust the base and LFE levels. Now you can push the plastic cover back about a 1/4 inch and then lift it off (I used a flat head screw drive to pop it off - took some effort). Inside, remove the 2 phillips screws from the top of the green circuit board, unplug the board, and push the 4 plastic holders out of the way so you can flip the board over. Replace the 3 amp, 250 volt fuse.

I haven't tried putting mine back together again yet. I'm off to Radio Shack...

Speaker Err on Yamaha Home Theater Unit ???


I am assuming this is the message that shows up from your receivers front display panel? It could be the receiver is telling you that you may have the neg & pos. wires crossed and in the opposite position either in back of the receiver speaker posts, or in back of the speaker terminals themselves. My Yamaha receiver has this nice feature where it will tell you when the speakers are "Out Of Phase" which describes the problem I have described here.

Just go back and make sure your wires are hooked up correctly, and use tape and a Marker to label pos. and neg so they will be easier to hook up next time you have to move the system, or decide to change some aspect of your system. I would then take the time to label every wire that goes to each speaker that you plug into the back of your receiver. This a BIG time saver........

Loud hHum from Subwoofer


Sounds like the hum might be mains hum caused by the failure of the power supply capacitor(s) in the sub. It/they will be the largest on the pc board. You will find all the details (needed to replace it) on them. If you find more than one replace both.

There is a possibility that you might have damaged the diaphragm in the process of moving which would create the same noise as you described.

Monsoon power cord needed on old computer speakers


leejean


the very best way to solve your problem, go to the electronic store and ask a dc power supply adapter 15volt 2A,vice versa polarity. with universal connector for it sure you can select the right type connector do you have for it fit to the back socket of your unit. before you connect read the correct polarity of your device you see label at back (+, -). and set the polarity output of the adapter correspond to your unit,,,
