The bass speaker of my JVC TH-A85 system randomly stops functioning. It will shut off in the middle of a movie, or when im just watching tv or listening to radio. After a while it automatically comes back on. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?
Ive finally found the problem with my system :o)
Its not the subwoofer its the DVD unit!!! think outside the box.
Mine was randomly switching into headphone mode, so i pluged some headphones in took them out and walla its working fine.
Not sure why this happaned perhaps some dirt or something else got inside there????

Yes you can use any 2-core cable to carry the bass signal to the subwoofer. As the bass speaker cone is the largest cone in your speaker set I would recommend a good quality cable of decent gauge (thickness) to carry the bass signal.
You just need to make sure you have the right connectors for the amp and sub and make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative.
this is kinda vague i hope this helps! first turn the equlizer to flat make sure eveything is equal. then turn he volume about 3/4 of the way up. this is around the point where th radiostartsto send distortion to the speakers (the easiest way to blow speakers) . thenstartwith the bass. eeryones ears are different i usually tue the bass to a notch or so below half ao if the radio ges to +12 i wouldput it on 4 or 5. next the mids are usully set at about +2 or 3. then thetrebbel is set a hairhigher than the bass. make this your maximum listenig volume so you dong damage the speakers. Hope this helped! let me know
use the speakers it came with it works fine for me i have mine hooked up to a 300w inverter anything less i dont get the best sound you cant turn the volume up too loud on the reciever it will draw too much power and shut it off or blow the fuse in you car unless the inverter you are using has an external fuse on it my inverter warns me that i am drawing to much power so when i hear the beep i turn it down a notch and works fine but ya try using the speakers th system came with
Sounds like your original and this sub have bad amps. The amp for the sub is not the same as the amp for the other speakers. The old unit has a dead amp and this new one is on the way out. (Pulling too much current on high bass)
Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.
