I have an OPPO, too. Are your main speakers set to Small? Is the subwoofer set to On? Subwoofer gain turned up? Is the RCA on the back of the OPPO, as well as the amp on the sub, securely connected? Maybe a switch on the sub's amp got switched?

Maybe give SVS a call tomorrow. I'm surprised Ed Mullen, of SVS, doesn't monitor this thread. He monitors the SVS Owners thread. They'll be able to isolate the problem. Just make sure everything is Kosher with the OPPO.

All checked; listened with finger on subwoofer cone and no output at all from L or R RCA sub input at 0dB on the amp.

I know sounds stupid but has anyone used a car wax on the piano finish to hide swirls ?

I don't think car wax sounds stupid at all. I've done it and redo it every 12 - 18 months. Restores the shine, does help a little with swirls, and seems to keep the dust down.

^^ what kind of wax do you use? I was thinking some meguiars nxt liquid. I just got my replacement sub and there's some swirl marks in the finish which I can see (I have dimmers in my room). My last one had the same thing...which I find odd for a 2k sub. Has anyone else noticed swirl marks on their sub right out of the box?

I've been dealing with their Canadian distributor. They are going to have me swap out the amp and see if that fixes it.

I'm using Meguires Deep Crystal carnuba wax. Any good carnuba should be fine. I never noticed the swirls ootb but their pretty much inevitable anyway.

I have used Meguirar's ULTIMATE Polish with much success on my wilson watts..piano black finish. removed swirl marks and some minor scratches. Followed up with a good auto wax (I used Sonax). Had to rub a little harder on the scratches, but more importantly this product did not add any swirls...just removed them.
