Crackling my sub works fine but it has a crackling sound that doesnt go away unless you turn it off for some time, when i turn it back on it will start crackling again soon after even when it's in standby mode. what causes the amp to do this and how do i find out which component to replaice to fix it?

Yeah, I've had two of these go out on me in exactly that failure mode. The first time, C-V bounced me around to two repair shops (a three-month process) before telling me to send it to them in Florida. This time, I went directly back to C-V with it, and they've had it two months now, and every time I call for a status update, I'm told "We'll let you know," or "We're working on the paperwork." Their service and support staff are not helpful - friendly, but not helpful - and the failure rate I've experienced is absolutely unforgivable.

So, my best solution I can give you is send it back for a warranty adjustment, and then sell it. As soon as mine comes back this 2nd time, it's going on the market, and I'm going out to buy a Sony.

Sub started to crackle and now is not working


Sounds like you may have a blown (open) speaker. Remove the speaker and measure the DC resistance if you have a ohmmeter. Should read a little under the rated impedance (4 ohms). No ohmmeter handy? Touch a 9V battery across the speaker terminals, and you should hear a pop from the speaker. No pop then you have a bad speaker. Also the speaker should move freely when you push on it. Don't push the dust cover (the dome in the center) unless you like that dented look! If the speaker is indeed bad and you can't get an OEM (P/N: 363389-001) then an aftermarket speaker should (in most cases) work fine. Just make sure it is a 12", 4 ohms and rated at 250W RMS or greater. May actually be lower than 250W but better higher than lower. Good luck!

I have a powered sub for my surround sound and every now and then its starts crackling and popping. i can make it stop by playing with the volume knob or even tapping it sometimes. my old sub did the same...


Does the crackling and popping sound comes only from the sub, or from the other speakers too? Try switching of to check. I think that it is problem on volume control potentiometer. In that case all the speakers must sound crackling and popping. If the problem is only in the sub you have to check its connections.

My Aiwa powererd sub-woofer TS-W50U) has crackling sound.


Crackling is an unusual noise but typically indicates a bad capacitor in the amplifier board. This can be a rather costly repair but first we will go through basic trouble shooting steps.

Reduce the volume on the sub and see if the noise remains and changes with the volume.

Unplug the sub and disconnect interconnect cables. With both hands push softly on the speaker cone to move it in, let it back out and do this a few times. If you hear a scraping noise and some resistance your driver is misaligned and you need to recone or replace the driver.

Check all your interconnect cables, there may be a bad internal connection (usually causes pops and cut-outs).

Let me know how things workout. If it makes the crackling noise at all volumes and the driver seems fine then I would seek a professional to repair it, or replace.

Cheers,

Kevin

Crackling coming from Velodyne DD-10 subwoofer


One of 2 things is going on.

First, the servo mounted in the driver may be going bad or is picking up some noise.

Second, Something in the amp section is going bad, hard to pinpoint the exact problem.

you say that it plays, so I tend to think it is the driver mounted servo unit.

If it is within the warranty time, take the unit back to the retailer you purchased it from, if not contact Velodyne for repair.

Bose Lifestyle 35 Accoustimass module rattles at high volume


Well to be hones 85 sounds pretty loud to me, generally the bose acoustimass module shouldnt really be distorting or crackling unless under extremely high sound levels.

It could possibley be that the speaker cone in the bass module has a slight perforation so it would distort at high levels. However other problems could be loose connections inside the unt or outside the unit. If your friend doesnt have it above 85 under normal circumstances I wouldnt worry to much about it but if there is a tear in the cone the problem could get worse.

Crackling coming from Velodyne DD-10 subwoofer


Velodyne is known for good service, i think in this case it is best to contact your vendor and have it solved.
I think internally there somethign wrong with the electronics, most likely the amplifier.

Sony Active Subwoofer noise


The circuit that should be turning the sub on and off based upon the presence of an audio signal is not working correctly and the sub is trying to reproduce 60 cycle hum. The unit needs service.

Cerwin Vega ve-28s subwoofer and new Cervin Vega 2-way satellites


I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.
