The rear one, when turned on lights up my otherwise dark room. And the front one is a distraction when I am watching something. So, is there anything that you have done that has proved excellent, and yet is time tested, without actually ruining the sub? If there's a link that I have missed, please point me there as well.
So, I still wanted to see the lights go from red to blue on mine. Therefore, I used masking tape and black sharpie. It worked with several layers of masking tape and is now a very dim light that doesn't light up anything around it, but that I can still see to make sure my subs are on. (You'd maybe be surprised that they turn off in some movies if there is a lot of talking going on - for instance, I watched Mr Smith Goes to Washington, an old Mono soundtrack, and the sub turned itself off and didn't turn on for the rest of the film - no loss of sound quality, just a thing to notice).
