I can not get my Sub Woofer to come on. The subwoofer is a Cambridge Soundworks "Newton Series P500" with a control power module. It was just moved from Florida to California but was well packed. Everything appears ok but no Sub.
Any guesses, guesstimations, things I should check.
Try setting your amp to "auto format decode".
It should easily be heard in this mode.
The sub will not show up on the display when in 5.1 mode. (Blue light on)
Use this with music, and use the 5.1 with movies to get a better experience from your amp.
The sub will work in 5.1 but doesn't show up in the display. Try movies with loud sounds.
Most of the pre-set sound fields are of no use to me. I only use normal surround, and AFD and love it. I hope this works for you!

The connections on the control module all depends on what outputs are available on the receiver or whatever audio component you have.
Probably the most straight forward hook up is to connect the receiver's speaker (R &L) outputs to the speaker Inputs of the module, however you may have potential outputs on your receiver that could used. What I suggest is for you to provide the information on the receiver with make and exact model number so the receiver outputs can be matched to the model. http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000030686.pdf
The link is for a system module manual, and it describes all the possible hook ups based on the outputs of the receiver. If you can provide the additional information on the receiver, I will try to asssit you further.
I have the same problem with my Cambridge Soundworks CSW250. Also one of the speakers doesn't work all the time. I'm sure it's a loose connection on the circuit board. When I tap the subwoofer near the connections, the popping noise changes (gets worse, better, other speaker works,etc.).I tried taking the subwoofer apart, but the area near the connections is sealed with glue, so I cannot access it. I hate it because when it works,it sounds so good. Anyone know how to get just the circuit board and back panel?
I tried to shove it behind a five-drawer file cabinet and managed to crack the circuit board inside because the power cable torqued the socket inside.
I was able to shove a tiny piece of 14-gauge wire inside and bridge the disconnect between the solder joint of the center lead and one of the metal terminals of the switch; now my speakers are working again!
