As in, the green power light is on, but no sound from the sub at all. No hum, nothing. Tried switching cables, no joy.

The surprising thing to me is, I barely use this Home Theater system even 10 hours a month. Actually, less. Unfortunately.

I've got an email in to their support now. In the meantime, until Monday, anyone got any ideas? I'm kinda suprised that this sub gave up the ghost, no warning, very light use, even though it's close to 6 years old.
I would take the amp off and check connections. There is a chance that there was something lose and using the sub caused it to disconnect.

If I select the Sealed tune with two ports plugged, is it true that acts as a 12Hz port tuning?

For newer models, anyway:

Stock the (no ports blocked) ... 20Hz tune
One port blocked ................... 16Hz tune
Two ports blocked .................. N/A (not supported)
Three ports blocked ................ Sealed

What year was your sub manufactured?

MartinLogan Motion 40s / 30 / LX16s
Marantz SR5007 / UD5007
Emotiva XPA-3
SVS SB13ultra

That seems such a small amount when you think what you'd get for $250 buying brand new.. are they frequently sold in the US? In the UK they probably aren't as common and I doubt you'd be able to get anything that even comes close performance wise for around £500.

What was the issue with the BASH amp failures? Was just a case of being overdriven or was it a specific fault?

Pioneer LX5090 ~ Oppo BDP-93 ~ Toshiba HD-XE1 ~ Harmony One
Marantz SR7005 ~ M&K LCR 851 & CS35 ~ SVS SB13 Ultra
Samsung S23A700D ~ 360 ~ PS3 ~ PS4 ~ Astro A40's​

I'll check later, but I just ordered mine six weeks ago. Granted, it was from the outlet store, but it's not the one with 20Hz, 15Hz, 10Hz port tuning. This one has 20Hz and 16Hz. I'm willing to bet it's a "newer model" if that's the case.

I'll check it today by taking the amp out. Didn't think it was a fuse, since the green power light illuminates. Loose connection inside is certainly a possibility. My money's on the pissed neighbor.

Just finished an 800 mile trip to pick up dual pb13 ultras. Thanks @bambam, was a lot of fun!

I won't be able to use them for a few months so I want to read up on configuring these. I'm planning on using a Denon x4000 and I want to use REW. Is REW something that replaces Audyssey or am I supposed to run Audyssey for the speakers and REW for the subs?

Congrat's on the subs. In regards to your question, in a nutshell, Audyssey is an EQ while REW is a measurement tool. While some manual EQ's can receive correction curves from REW (Velodyne SMS-1, MiniDSP, Behringer DSP-1124, etc), Audyssey doesn't and won't. Where REW will be useful for you as an Audyssey user will be in finding the best locations for your subs, insuring they are integrating well, and giving you a feel for your rooms acoustics. This might not seem like much to some but it probably is as least as important as the EQ. Placement can help limit the needs/demand for EQ but EQ can't undue poor placement/setup/integration.

REW is freeware and hosted by hometheatershack.com. Excellent tutorials on REW and what else you will need to run on the forums there.

Congrats again.

Nice set up you will have, congrats, hope you will enjoy it soon. Audyssey XT32 is what you want so Denon X4000 or 4520 or new line with Atmos will give it to you. Don't rush AVR purchase a specially if you want X4000 or 4520 prices dropping so even better deal will be there later on. What set up you will have on end? 5.2, 7.2 or more?

Instead of all that, you could have the same with canal earplugs and just a bit slightly smaller

Bose Jewel speakers.

I'm going to start with 5.2 for now and maybe move to 7.2. It looks like the x4000 is discontinued so I'm hoping to grab a deal on it over the next couple months. I'm not starting my build for a few months so plenty of time.

Yes it is, I have one of those and it is great AVR will drive your whole system like a champ without any problems. Let us know for sure what is new with your system.

Received an email from SVS CSR. Took the amp out, all looks clean. All connections are tight. He surmises (after I checked the woofer itself) that the amp is gone. We're discussing getting a SLEDGE amp for this sub, since mine is old enough to have the older BASH amp built-in. If I do one sub with what amounts to an amp upgrade, I might as well do the other one, too. At least, that's what I think.

I just came across this. Food for thought

http://forums.audioholics.com/forums/threads/head-to-head-review-ascend-acoustics-cbm-170-se-vs-wharfedale-diamond-10-1.89051/page-4

If EMP and the guy behind the Arx speakers (Jon Lane) tell me break in is not a myth, I'm inclined to believe them. Not everything we hear may show on a graph?
