Either the amp for the sub is bad, or the sub woofer speaker is bad. If you checked the fuses, you must know how to get the amp out of the sub woofer box (screws in the bottom of box and around the metal plate of the box). Take it out again and check the wires that go to the sub woofer. It is the red and white wires if I remember correctly. They come from the box and plug into the amp board with a white plastic connector. Or you can check the wires right at the speaker. The cover for the speaker comes off with about 4 phillips screws and then take the speaker out with the screw driver as well.Use an ohm meter and check the ohms on the speaker at those wires after you dis-connect them from the board. That woofer should measure between 3 and 6 ohms to still be good. If it measures less than 3 ohms or more than 6 ohms, it is probably bad and will need to be replaced.
Here is the JVC part number for that woofer.
Be prepared, the cost is ridiculous. $110.16 at JVC's service site.
Or you could just find one that fits properly and use it instead. They are not the best woofer around and are very over-priced.
I hope this helps, if so a FixYa! rating would be very much appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering free help to people like yourself.
