Only about two months ago, I purchased a Polk Audio PSW10 Subwoofer as a quality replacement for a cheap-o, low quality sub that finally blew out after years of use. The Polk Audio Sub really made my home theater system go to the next level of quality, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, however, today I have experienced a problem. I hope to fix it rather than replace it. I don't know much about subwoofers, so excuse me if I am not using the technical terms or something, but basically the problem is this:
First and foremost, the subwoofer isn't making any noise. At first I figured that it was not turned on (as I normally turn the sub itself off when not in use), so I went to turn it on. I saw that the light in the back was green, signifying that it was on. I then checked all the connections to the sub and receiver, and nothing was out of order. So, I went back to the Subwoofer, and noticed something strange; the sub was actually in the 'off' position, but somehow the light was still green. I then flipped the switch up, but still it did not make any noise. Also, when I switched the switch from on to off, it made a somewhat loud thud noise, as if the speaker kicked. When I tried turning it on and off, it continued to make the thud noise each time, and still the light remained green. I have not been able to get it to produce any noise yet this far, nor have I resolved the issue with the light remaining green.
I appreciate any insight into the problem you have to offer. Thanks in advance for all the help I may get, as I would like to resolve the issue rather than replace it, as I have stated before.
