    My sub is a mordount short MSW 20 and sometimes it doesn't wake up soon enough. I have had it for 3 years now, is it time for a change??

    I have the same problem with my wife as there are times when she will not wake up soon enough either.

    I'm certainly thinking about a change as I'd love a newer model.

    Increase the subwoofer signal level at the amp/receiver, compensate by using the sub's own volume control.

    If the sub has two inputs use an Y-splitter and use both inputs.

    Thank you for your reply, the input is left and right, and I thought it didn't make any difference where it is plugged. If I use a splitter for both inputs will it make any difference on the sound?? ie more slam??

    Not more slam, just a higher input signal which should 'trick' the sensor circuitry that puts the sub to go to sleep.
