I have a PSW 50 purchased several years ago which I currently have connected to a Onkyo DS-595 digital receiver. My set up includes RM series L/R front speakers, a CS 200 and a passive RM sub which I have wired to the RM L/R speakers.
Cambridge Soundworks dipole surrounds handle the rear.
The PSW 50 is hooked up from the LFE output of the ONKYO through a run of Audioquest cable to the line level inputs on the back of the PSW 50. Last night while watching a movie, the powered sub quit. Volume was low to moderate.
I stopped the movie and ran through the speaker configuration mode on the receiver, where pink noise is sent to the different speakers.
When the pink noise reached the receiver, no sound was output.
I powered off the receiver and the sub. When the sub was powered off, its internal amp made the normal "switch" sound of its turning itself off.
After waiting several minutes I powered both back on.
I went back to the speaker configuration menu on the receiver. When passing the signal to the sub this time, the sub turned on, as it always does, but no sound again was output. This led me to believe that the receiver was outputting a signal, the sub was receiving it, but thats as far as the signal was sent. It seems that once the line level input signal is received by the sub, it can't pass it on to the speaker portion of the sub. No sound.
Are there any other troubleshooting ideas you could recommend prior to my seeking service for the sub?
I plan on hooking it up to an older Parasound receiver I have, to see if it will accept and pass on a signal received through the speaker level inputs. But I'm looking for clues.
I had the sub in for service shortly after purchase for failure to detect a signal from a source, but have had great luck since then.
Any help, or troubleshooting suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
