I had the same problem. It is a loose conection on the print. The Amp unit goes into failsafe mode. You can check the Rc control. You are only alowed to turn it on and off. No signal regulating.
The solution is to remove the backside, and check the print for bad connections or even broken parts.
I experienced one leg on a transistor tha had broken.
Good look

I have a sony str-de475 and a kef PSW1000, i have the line in the left on the sub connected to the sub out on the amp, and the sub powers up, but im getting absolutly nothing from the amp and now all of a...


It's not clear if this has EVER worked or what is new in the scenario. The STR manual has setup instructions for supporting a sub. If you want to prove the sub itself works you could jack any source like, say, a CD player, into it to prove its amp will respond BUT IT WILL BE LOUD if it works.

I think the subwoofer power light should be green when the bass is working and it stays red with very low bass output. Not sure if I blew speaker or if connections are off, seems to be subwoofer itself. ...


If it makes any sound at all the speaker is probably not blown, the connections are probably on and the fuse is ok.

You don't say to what it is attached and if the setup for bass/lfe managament settings produce the same or a different result than program material does.

You also don't say how the sub is driven (speaker level or Line Level) and if it's a full-range or low-frequency-only input. All these things matter, as does your source electronics and its settings for bass management.

Try setting the low-pass higher and the high-pass lower.

The manuals would be a good place to start. Go to retrevo.com.

When my jbl psw-d112 is on it will run just fine for a few min then it will sound like the speaker is blown. the green power light that is next to the vol level knob starts to turn red. What does this...


That model is known to have issues with the amps.Your problem is caused by a couple of components on the board shorting out.If you pull the amp out you will find on the large board behind the speaker terminal a couple of burned components.

The easiest fix is to buy a Bash 300w amp from Parts Express and replace the original amp.The Bash amp fits pretty well except that it is about an inch shorter.You can fill the hole with some mdf and have a sub that actually performs better than the original and with less heat build up as it is digital.Hope this helps,it's not complicated really.

I'm getting a loud "popping or clicking when i plug the sub in. also i noticed the green light comes on immediatly when the loud popping begins. the loud popping dosen't stop untill i unplug it


What's feeding it? The sub comes on automatically when it senses a signal, which seems to be what it's doing. Perhaps the loud clicking is originating at the other end of the cable.

Subwoofer will not product sound. (ignore product)


Please verify that we're talking about a JBL PSW-D110 here. I'm making no assumptions.

Are you running the Ipod into its L & R RCA jacks as prescribed?

Have you tried it with something besides the Ipod? A sub isn't supposed to reproduce a full range signal. Come to think of it, is the Ipod even outputting anything within the sub's operational range? I don't expect a lot of real bass comes out of one.

Perhaps you could try adjusting the Low Pass up to 180 to see if anything anywhere near the 'real' bass region is present.

Bottom line: There's not a lot of need for a sub (and no other speakers) running off of any music sound source. You wouldn't hear anything above 180hz.

Power not working


If it is fused check to see if the fuse is blown... Start with power and work you way down from there.
Power to the sub.
Signal to the sub
Cabling to sub
Check the speaker itself to see if it is good.
