Is the + - correct? Are the Ohms matching? Cables and attachments ok? Output wattage: matching? Could also be related to a Shielding problem. The subwoofer power board may be defective, poor contacts, condenser variable resistor is defective, and so may other issues too numerous to mention here. What ever the case, the problem seems to be isolated to the subwoofer itself.

It should go into standby mode when you shut the rest of your system down. The led on the back is supposed to be green when in use and red when on standby. I believe yours should have the "auto on" switch on the back. If you are manually shutting the sub off make sure it is the 1st thing you power down. It should not pop then. As much volume as it puts out you could damage the speaker if you do anything to cause a pop. If it pops while watching a movie or with music, check connections. I believe the manual says left input is the recommended one.

SOURCE: Wharfdale PC 10 subwoofer

Some basic trouble shooting is required here. First you need to see if it is a problem from your source or the sub. Try a different source to the sub-woofer and see if it changes the response. If still nothing on the sub, then most likely there is an issue with the amp or driver. Check to see if there is a fuse on the sub, if so, it could be blown. There could also be an issue with the auto switching circuit on the subs amp, in that case, it would need to be repaired in the shop. But before that I would check all of the connections to the sub, and also to the driver in the cabinet. If everything looks good, then put some type of source directly to the woofer to see if it works, if you get sound, then looks like the amp has a problem. Again a repair or replace issue.

SOURCE: Wharfdale moviestar 70 speekers and sub

i have the same moviestars 70+ plus a yamaha rx-v750 put the crossover on the sub to maximum (left knob) volume (right knob) about 2/3 clockwise. change the crossover on the yamaha to anywhere from 80-120 ( the 120 will put more bass to the sub) if your yamaha has sub level/volume control set it higher, also if it has LFE/sub out set it to sub only.
Good luck!

Manual to connect sw8 sub


The SW8 and SW150 have line level and speaker level inputs. It has a line level output, which will not drive speakers without using a separate amp for the signals.

Hi i" ve bought on


This may help. If it's not the exact model you have it will at least get you started as subwoofers are pretty much teh same for connection and operation.

It lights up but does not produce any sound,thamks


Possible that the fuse has blown or the power amplifier is defective. you will need to remove to check even to check the sub woofer coil for continuity - if the coil has opened up or is damaged.

Can I connect my floorstanders to wharfedale sw150 without any external amplifier, If so, how ?


What 'floorstanders'?

Its internal amp is for its own subwoofer ONLY, but if you use your own amp's full-range speaker-level outputs to feed two chanels entering the sub you can tag the 'floorstanders' onto the sub's speaker terminals as speaker wire extenders. Your amp will be powering the floor units.

I'd keep the sub separate and feed it LFE only if it was mine.
