Klipsch RW-12D - Auto On Feature - Page 5

post #121 of 133
If you guys all said you use the depth, is that mean that you use depth before running the audysey changed it to depth after running the audysy?

Fwiw....Most movie effects are in the 50-70hz range, so Punch is the proper and best setting for movies. Music on the other hand can go low low low with some classical music going into single digits, so Depth is the best setting for music. I don't use XT-32, but would assume Flat would be the best setting as XT-32 would take over the eq processing. ymmv

An annoying thing about Auto On, with my old JBL sub was that it would take a minute or so to wake up when it was on auto. I thought I noticed the same thing with the Klipsch the first few days but not at all now. I use it in Punch mode and love it.

I always heard that the other way around....re: punch and depth.

apologies for not finding my solution within previous responses, but after reading through for a bit i figured a better way to find an answer would be to simply retouch the issue itself.

So i have a Klipsch rw-12d that often creates a hum/buzz noise after all audio sources are turned off. I figure its some sort of interference, but cant figure out what. Its inconsistent, which is weird, turning off sometimes after 20 min of no use, and other times not. it also doesnt always hum/buzz. weird huh. in addition, as owners like myself have learned, the off switch is inconveniently located on the back, which in my case i have to move the entire entertainment center to get to it. i shouldn't have to do that, and i Truly think the darn sub should have a manual off in the settings so I can program my remote.

anywho, if i cant find a good answer on this forum, ill just contact Klipsch myself. i figured it would have to be well know by now what a good solution may be. I simply want to turn the sub off so there is no interference, and id like to be able to program my Harmony 700 remote to do such, as I do with all my other devices. to date i have found no solution.

i appreciate any responses!

Hum is generally a ground loop problem. You may want to try plugging the sub into a different outlet, then, if you can, an outlet on a different circuit than the other equipment. I've never had a problem (until tomorrow wink.gif), but I use a UPS for everything, which probably helps.

For "off," you may just want to settle for volume = 0 and save it as a preset ("Night," perhaps?). Save your existing settings as either "Movie" or "Music" and just program the remote to change it as part of the sequence.

I will warn you, however, that my Harmony signal does not reach the sub (where the sensor is, apparently, in the back - perhaps why Klipsch never provided a remote for the sub themselves) unless I'm almost on top of it.

Good luck. An intermittent problem can be maddening.

My Harmony remote has the same problem, have to be on top of it; although I don't have a problem with the Auto On feature, again, until tomorrow. YMMV

Addendum: This won't, of course, save energy. For that, you may want to consider something like this:

I use separate out let with the Isolated-ground Receptacles. It is red receptacles which you can find at Menards or Depot for $10.

My 12D now goes into standby when in flat or punch mode but not depth. Weird because for the last 6 months it never did but now does? I have changed nothing except started running in punch mode 100% of the time. I dont get near as much port chuffing and I think it sounds a bit better in punch mode. I still am saving up money for an SVS but by the looks of it prolly not till tax time next year.

I have an opposite problem with my brand new RW-12.

For some reason it won't stay on for more than a minute or so. Even while I am in the middle of changing settings it will just shut off.

Has anyone experienced this before?

No, yours seems to be the first. And, IMHO, it is definitely defective, and I'm surprised and disappointed that you're having so much trouble (documented in the other thread) with newegg. I hope you get it resolved and get a sub with which you are happy.

Good luck.

Good luck.

Thanks. I'm working with them now we'll see what they say.

edit: She agreed that I should not have to pay for shipping back. They sent me a shipping label. She also assured me that if any second unit still has issues, they will not charge me for returning that either. Look's like I'm sticking with this sub for now. That's good because the budget was getting out of hand!

Hi all, sorry to revive an old thread, but I have almost the opposite problem described here with one of my dual RW-12Ds...

For some reason, one of them seems to randomly "shut off." Once, I checked the sub and noticed that the LCD screen was off, and it didn't t respond to any button-pushing - so I turned off the sub from the back, then turned it back on, and everything was fine. But several days later, I noticed that the sub had "turned off" again.

The sub seems to be working properly, as far as the sound goes. I just can't imagine why it might be randomly shutting off...my other RW-12D has never done this.

Could it be a simple electrical issue, or perhaps related to the fact that I have two subs connected to my AVR? And how is Klipsch's warranty department?

Thanks.
