    My ps1000 sub has recently developed a fault.
    It will no longer turn itself on when it receives an lfe signal.
    If I remove the mains power from it for 5 seconds and then plug it back in, it will power up and run fine.
    If i turn the amp off, I will have to repeat this procedure to get the sub running again.

    Has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this or what to look for.

    Thanks for your help.

    Is it possible that you or someone else could have turned the amplifier subwoofer output down?

    Even if this has not happened, adjust the sub output to maximum (often +12db) and see if the problem still occurs. This will establish whether the auto on/off is working at all.

    Ben.

    p.s. Can you set the PS1000 to permanently on????

    Unfortunately the amp is auto on only and the amp is set at max output.

    Any other ideas, I have also tried connecting the 2 outputs from my amp into the 2 inputs on the sub.

    Still only works after the mains has been powered off and then on again.

    Weird eh.

    Might be time to be retired to the great sub scrap yard.

    Any recommendations of a good replacement to this sub.

    Can't really think of anything else to try. A decent electrical repair shop may well be able to bodge it so that it's on all the time.

    Or.....

    Just leave the amp on all the time (or does it still auto power off).
