Infinity Oreus Sub Woofer auto power off pain in the bum

I'm generally loving my new speakers, but the auto power off feature of the sub is proving deeply irritating. The sub switches itself off after 90 seconds of lack of bass soundtrack, giving an audible click. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

Isn't there an "always on" option? If you buy a sub cable splitter the auto on/off is also slightly more sensitive - but I still leave my sub on all the time

No there isn't. :(

shame - if I only had the auto on/off option it would drive me spare - particularly that nasty little thump sound when the sub kicks into life.

Get yourself one of those spltters - your sub will be more sensitive - although will still switch "off" and you'll get a few extra db's for your trouble

I just bought the sub lead from the power buys forum. Would that be surplus to requirements then?

Thanks for replying btw. :)

no I don't think so - the sub lead you bought connects your sub to your receiver/amp/processor but they usually have only one "connector".

You sub will usually have two high level inputs, marked L&R (not sure why they do this), the splitter cable will plug into the end of your sub cable but will have two "Connectors" which you plug into both inputs.

As I said this will make your sub auto on/off slightly more sensitive - it does work but your sub will still go into sleep mode after a few "quiet" minutes - I couldn't live with it even in it's slightly more sensitive incarnation.

Maybe email Infinity?

They don't have the Oreus speakers on that website, and to contact them you need to click which model you are enquiring about first.

i think I'll contact AV-Sales and see what they say.

Hi,
I am not at all familiar with your setup but,
One possible solution if you are using the phono connection is to turn the sub output on your amp all the way up, to get the highest possible signal.
And then turn the volume control on the sub down to the correct listening level.
Just a thought. :)

I have the Infinity speakers too - as per " Paul Smith" turn Sub vol all the way but on the sub not the amp, using HK 5550 and single dedicated connection not using L/R.

How have you set it up - connections, etc - amp used ?

Single dedicated connection to HK507. First impressions are that the recommended method makes a big difference.

Thanks all.
