Hello James, did you find the value of ZD3.
I need it too.
I have the same problem, and I take out the ZD3 and the subwoofer works. But I'm not sure that is correct. I think it may be the circuit stand by.

ZD stands for zener diode and used for exact voltage regulation. Take out a known good one and go to a repair shop to replace. Make sure that when you re install, the striped (polarity) markings are in the same direction!

    Un solder the diode and take it down to a repair shop - or remove the entire board and take it down to shop. What ever is easier.

I read on another forum is to turn your stereo level for the sub all the way to max then dial back the level on the sub to desired level.

Home subwoofer no sound


always 1 speaker per amp output!!! and between red and black only. You can send any signal into a subwoofer. Hi frequencies will be quiet but it's safe. switch a normal speaker for the sub and listen, you should hear a muffled sound. Look for the sub output on the amp... do you need to switch on the sub manually somewhere?

I have a low red light on my amp and no sound coming out of my sub, any help please


Check the wire connections from the amp to the sub. Connect them to any other speaker instead of your sub. If you hear sound the problem is your sub. If you do not the problem is that your amp is not supplying a sound signal to your sub.

Acoustic reaserch subwoofer dont have any sound


If this is a powered sub then it's most likely the internal amp inside it that has failed. It's more than likely the part that works the hardest on the board. IE the main amp semicoductor.

Hi there, i have a orion cobalt 2105xp 400. i have hooked all up, but very little bass. i have 1 10" boston acoustic sub. i noticed that the led is constant red, is it supposed to be green, crossover...


amp is in protect mode. check your wiring and make sure your sub is wired properly for ohms. dual 4 ohm in parallel = 2ohm. dual 4 in series is 8 ohms. dual 2 ohm parallel= 0.5 ohms and in series 4 ohms. check ground and power wires. make sure sub isnt blown. a blown sub WILL cause this on any amp.
