it is not a known defect. period. that sub is old, and every design of electronics eventually ends up with a common issue.
if an old piece of electronics that is designed perfectly usually dies in 10 years with a common issue, that is because the part that failed is the weak link. there is a lot in electronics that have a limited lifespan.
lets just say that you have a resistor that burns up in a circuit at exactly 10 years, and everyones same product does the same... lets just say that the manufacturer beefed up that resistor in the first place, and in 10 years and one month, the transistor that that resistor served as a pull-up burned up, and that is the common issue.
as an engineer that designs circuits, i can tell you that it is impossible to design a circuit that everything fails at the same time. there is always a weak link. always.
now... if that sub was 6 months old, and it was a common failure, then your posting would be valid. they have a problem. however, that sub can be from 2007. 6 years is way too much for a class action lawsuit for electronics, and way past the warranty period. if you had a valid point after all those years, then every electronic company that ever existed would be out of business due to lawsuits.
