While watching TV one night my dog who lays next to my Power 8 sub in the corner of my bedroom started growling in the area of the sub near a french door. I thought he was nuts and my wife thought someone was in our house. Anyway, as a good hubby would do I scanned the house....nothing. Then later 10 minutes or so my sub starts putting out a loud test tone (with system off, sub in stand by) and doesn't quit... Damn I say(awesome I think really...upgrade time!) Well, the sub sb under warranty still but I sure may consider the REL sub I've been eying while waiting for the repair.

I have never seen this before. I assume it's electronic related. Does anyone know a fix?

I am looking for a low profile sub that packs a wallop. Any other recommendations?

How about the new Paradigm Siesmic 12?

4500 watt amplifier and a 12" woofer with over 2" of excursion... enough "wallop" for you?

Good news/Bad news. Good - It turned out to be the cable, so I'll only have to replace it. Bad - no upgrade yet.

I'll give the Paradigm a look.

Your dog probably heard a resistor on it's way out. They emit a high-pitched whine.

Btw Rel subs are overrated, and overpriced. I own a Storm- it's OK for music duties, but not for HT. My SVS is much better.

Which Rel were you considering?

Krell Evolution 900e x 7

Bose Jewel speakers.

 

Jealous of my speakers?

The Seismic subs are new subs for the Studio line. The new sub for the Signature series is called the Servo 2500 if I remember correctly.

on an unrelated note, does your dog(or any pet for that matter) really enjoy classical music?

I cant get my sisters cats to sit down in the basement unless i have classical music playing on my m60s.

The Seismic 12 is part of the new Reference line.

There is also a Servo-15 Signature being released.

Here is the PDF that shows the new Reference line along with the Seismic 12.

dogs can hear much higher frequencies than we can and I would not be suprised if it hear the high pitched buzz before the cable bit the bullet so to say.........
