I have a 110v power
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
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.
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.
My speakers sound flat with no highs at all
I am trying to work out if you have damaged the speakers and amp too.
Have you tried a pair of headphones on the amp? If they sound ok then your amp is fine.
Assuming it is, then speakers have what's called crossover units in side each of them. This splits the sound into three parts. Bass, midrange, treble. The bass is handled by the woofer's, the midrange by a middle sized speaker or or it's combined with a tweeter, which of course handles the treble.
Connecting a 1.5 volt battery across any of the individual speakers will cause it to pop if working. If the speaker then is not getting sound then the crossover unit is to blame.
When you look at the crossover unit, it will have coils and capacitors (non polarised) on it. The bigger ones deal with the bass and the smaller ones treble. If you find a fault say on the crossover of the speaker, for example no treble comes out of it. Then start by replacing the capacitors. Use the same value as on the capacitor and remember they fit any way round.
