Bose acousticmass 15 sub-woofer making a noise

Recently my house experienced an electrical surge during a thunderstorm. The sub-woofer powers on, but just makes a constant thumping noise. I replaced the fuse, but it makes the same noise. I was wondering if it is blown or if this problem sounds familiar and do you think it's repairable? I figured the sub-woofer has some kind of chip in it since the other speakers won't work without the sub and it just needs to be replaced.

The sub contains the amp for the other speakers. But it sounds like the amp has a seriously damaged section and will probably have to be serviced by Bose.

The subwoofer starts to make a loud thumping sound


Remove the signal source and power it on to see if the problem occurs without any input signal. The problem could be in the receiver and not the sub

Polaroid flm-3701 monitor no power


Hi Cliff. the control board (as seen here: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/251052948534?lpid=87 ) May be the only option. But once one thing has gone others may follow, ie Even the screen itself may have been hurt. I would highly suggest to throw it out and just buy another screen. Note, that model does NOT come with any 'fuses' inside, hence probably why it sparks still.

Sub woofer making a screaching loud noise when powered on


The pop from other electrical items makes me think it's a ground problem but I am do not have a clue as to what type of setup you are running over there. Did you try a surge protector?Is it 110volts with a seperate ground wire?
Have you tried running a UPS?

Thump at the time of shutoff


The amplifier in the sub as with any other amplifier has a capacitor in it. Essentially a battery that holds a charge. When you trun things off such as subs or amps with a powerstrip instead of the intended on off button, the power supply has been cut, but the capacitor is still energizing the unit. So it catches the noise in the line.

Subwoofer "thumping" w. no audio feed


You need to check your ground connection. If there is a bad ground there will be feedback to the amp and it will just sit there and loop back with the Thump, Thump, Thump sound. I had to wire my amp's ground all the way back to the negative battery terminal. It was a pain but I have never had a problem since :)
