I recently got my first sub (used JBL Venue Sub10) and I am wondering which will maximize subwoofer amp life - turning it off when not in use or using standby mode?

If it is a class D amp then there would be no significant difference.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

The power consumption difference is even negligible. You could save a small (maybe 10 watts) amount of electric by turning it completely off. But for all intents and purposes when in standby the amp is off.
