    Thanks for the feedback. I was looking for another sub without the speakers and came across some that weren't too expensive in the 20$ range. Do u guys think that it will ocst more than that to fix or should i just get it repaired because im not to good at repairing these types of things.

Hi, probably two things that can go dead, 1) the woofer itself and/or 2) the amplifier. I will rule out poser supply cos the other speakers are working. Normally they have a separate amplifier than that of the woofer. If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron and a multi tester, after unplugging from the mains, then you open the enclosure and check the continuity of woofer which should read between 4-8 ohms, if it is open or no reading, replace just 2 wires/terminals involve with 3 or 4 screws. If the woofer reads a continuity, then it is the amp which normally is just a single power IC attached to an aluminum heatsink. In some instances, it may be a power transistor pair. In any case you have to be familiar with component level repair. Otherwise, you are probably better off asking a qualified service personnel to do the repair job. Hope this be of some help. Pls post how things turn up. Regards.

    Hi again, a sub for $20 is not bad as long as the speaker/enclosure size is roughly the same or bigger and the power rating is the same or higher.

    If it is the (just the) speaker, repair/replacement should not really be difficult. A couple of screws underneath or at the back of the sub to remove the panel covering, normally 4 screws for the sub speaker and two wires/terminals for the actual connection, put it back and that's it. This is of course if and when you have determined that the woofer is open. The IC is another thing. Maybe you have to ask somebody who knows desoldering and soldering.

    But then again $20 doesn't sound so bad.....

    Cheers.

HARMAN KARDON AVR 130NO SOUND FROM SUB WOOFER

The receiver must KNOW it has a sub and you must decide how bass is managed among all your speakers and set up relative levels.

I have a active sub woofer (akari bazooka) but the only connections available are the speaker connections. The front of the sub woofer has volume adjustment. How can I connect this sub woofer to my Harman...

hi,
You can't connect the pre out of your AVR to this sub woofer. Do one thing connect the frond left/ right channel speaker "B" out of harman kardon to the sub woofers left right speaker in put. you can connect the speaker out "A" to your normal left right speakers. Remember to switch Speaker "A" and "B" in ON position in your AVR. Also do one thing go to the speaker setup of AVR and switch OFF (slelect NONE) the sub woofer.This will disconnect the sub woofer pre our and the sub frequency will mix with frond left right channels.
ok

I am getting no sound from sub. The turns on, but so sound. I have connected to two different receivers to verify it isn't the receiver sub output.

Bear with me on this.

Just because two systems don't light this sub up doesn't prove the amps are faultless unless they work with other subs. Can you assert that?

See page 14:

How are you driving the sub - Speaker or Line Level?

Sound sticks II

My problem is fixed now. I plugged the speakers into the earphone socket. There was no immediate effect just silence. I twiddled the control on the bass unit, played with the volume controls on the sticks. Then I realised the sound was back with the external speakers not the internal ones. It was as though the Harman Kardon system was re-booting itself. Very weird.
