Paradigm pdr80 no sound


If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

Getting nothing out of this speaker. Was clicking for a while. Power light is on.Can I open it up and just hook up the speaker by itself to check that part It is a pdr 8 subwoofer


That would be one way to isolate the problem to either the woofer or its amp.

But do you know that it's getting an audio signal from your ?? unnamed source? Its setup could be at fault.

Or you could jack a CD player or any other audio source directly into the sub amp and see if THAT works. Start with something low as you won't have control of the volume.

I have a 110v power input Paradigm PDR10 and would like to convert it to 220/240. I'm sure it's a case of change the series connection to parallel on the transfomrer but I'm not sure the exact functions...


I have the same problem. An external transformer would step down the voltage, but it wouldn't help with the frequency, which would still be 50Hz. Paradigm says there's a risk of burnout if an unmodified PDR-10 is run at 50Hz rather than 60Hz

Every now and then I hear a "thumping" sound. Could it possibly be a "grounding" issue?


I have found my problem and it could be yours also. The dust cover on the speaker had come unglued and was banging . It kept getting worse. when I took the speaker out I found the problem by hooking up the speaker to receiver without the amp and the problem was obvious immediately. Glued the cover back on and problem solved.

PDR-10 subwoofer has no output. 120vac to unit is


I have exactly the same situation with my PDR-10. Paradigm techs were of no help, don't me to take it to a service centre which i did. Of course when it was there they plugged it in and it stayed on for a day and a half so no problem right? Get it home, nothing, plugged and replugged, got it on once but not for long. Opened up back, everything including fuse looks solid and fine....to naked eye anyhow.

Hum coming out of Front left/right speakers but not center


There is a chance that your wiring is producing this problem. Manufacturers don't always make equipment that is compatible with each other. The biggest problem's are "ground loops". Radio Shack has a non-electrical device that separates the common ground from all equipment. You basically connect it between your amp out's and in's - cables included. It is possible that other manufactures also make and sell this device too. It's main "Google" name would most likely be - "Ground Loop Isolators". If you are using the actually speaker outputs into your subwoofer amp input(s), check your polarity wiring again. Good luck with your system - it sounds like it'll rock when it's all setup correctly.

Power problem with Paradigm PDR 10 Subwoofer


Yes it can be.You can check it with ohmmeter the impedance should be 4 or 8 ohms.But if you can disassembly the sub its better then you can see and check everything.My guess is that one of the cables on the speakers connector is broken and its just touching the conntact.

Power Indicator Light on Front Doesn't Light


The indicator light needs to be replaced, there is a loose or poorly soldered connection on one of the led's leads, or the circuit providing the signal (voltage) for the light isn't functioning.

Paradigm PDR-10 Sub Box


Since this is a sub I assume the sound is not coming from the speaker but is mechanical and coming from the amp in back. The tranformer can be the problem if it has delaminated or may be loose. Try removing the amp and tightening the screws. If there are rubber grommets to isolate the tranformer don't overtighten. www.pardigm.com for contact info and parts. They are very nice. If the noise is coming from the speaker then you are still under warrantee and they will replace it free.
