Check its speaker connections. Check the speaker using a dry cell. If it is found OK, check the sound settings. If you wish to get more details, check this link.

Subwoofer not working


There may be an internal fuse that's blown. I'd take it to a repair facility and have them check it. Could also have a bad connection inside. Good luck!

Mcs 160 subwoofer no power


I had the same problem with my subwoofer unit. I found the zener diode ZD3 was fried. The pic below shows the diode and its clearly tagged ZD3. You need a multimeter to check this before you order anything. This diode should only transmit power in one direction. Its size and spec is 18v .5w zener diode. (that's 1/2 w) It's very inexpensive and the whole repair took about an hour. This is from a Boston Acoustics subwoofer MCS 160
Ok..the procedure is easy.
1) unplug the unit and bring it to a well lit work area.
2) remove the panel from the back and locate the board that is held to the panel by 4 screws and has the ZD3 diode. The pic below shows the diode at the end of my test lead. Note the direction of this part and reinstall the new one in the same direction. Its a simple de-solder and re-solder project. I elevated the new diode about 1/8 " from the board with a small strip of copper. This acted as a heat sink during the soldering and elevated the part above the board to help it dissipate heat later when in use.
3) re-install the board and plug in all the connections.
4) this worked for me and I'm enjoying my sound system again!..good luck0482b949-8492-43a6-91df-0fb2f0e6888b.jpg

I have a Boston MCS130 surround sound system, have had for about 2 yrs. Was woken up during the night with the subwoofer making feedback noise. Had to turn off to keep from making noise. Have checked...


mine had the same problem until it completely quit. unplug the sub and turn it over, press gently on the speaker cone, does it move freely, or do you hear a sort of scrapping noise? if it moves freely with no noise, its a dif problem than mine. if you do hear the scrapping noise, then theres a short in the voice coil, from what ive read you have to replace the driver (actual speaker part), its basically blown

How do i connect my boston acoustics pv800 subwoofer to my Harmon Kardon AVR 520 reciever?


You need to use the LINE LEVEL connection on the pv800 (usually a rca type connector cable) and run this cable into the back of the HK 520 Subwoofer PRE-OUT connector, be sure the HK Receiver menu speaker set-up option is set to SUBWOOFER "YES"

Boston Acoustics VR960 Crackle


I just finished repairing one of my VR960 units with a similar problem. My problem was that the sub would crackle no matter what input level. After changing a few of the active components, I finally discovered it to be a capacitor which was faulty. Anyway, I replaced the three 100uf 25V capacitors on the main board and all was well.

Good Luck.

No subwoofer signal


your out put signal circut bord is shorted out. It happens when there is static feed back from output continuity to an electric overload inside the unit. Then when you have a shorted board then it will eventually go into a protect mode and nothing will work ...just the power light will turn red and blink.

Just a suggestion.....Get rid of it while it has a bad sub output signal. you can get some money out of it.
I can always use extra parts for the other denons I work on....call me if you want...630-742-6587
