If this question has been answered before in this forum - I apologize. I'm new to Polk and just getting back into my home theater after being in hell (married) for the last few years.
My question is regarding my PSW505 and what the best choice is for power management. Is it best to turn it on/off, to leave in auto mode, or switch it to standby and back on when needed?
Part of the reason I ask is I am damaged goods thanks to my JBL PB12. I would leave it in auto mode and one night while we were all sleeping it just started rumbling, woke the whole house up, and I ended having to unplug it to shut it off. The amp went not too long after. The sub was unrepairable thanks to JBL discontinuing parts, which in the end was a blessing because it led me to a better Polk sub.
I just want to take the best care of my sub possible, and would also not like a repeat of the above. The only thing that should shake the house during the night is my snoring!
Thanks to everyone for weighing in on this!
