Help with wireless subwoofer

Hi Guys,

I have two SVS subwoofer hooked up to a Marantz AV7705. As they are across the room from one another, one is hard wire and the other one is linked via wireless system (Sunfire). Both SW are set to auto-off. Unfortunately, the wireless one is constantly on and giving feedback even though the hard wire one is turning off automatically when the AV7705 is off.

Not sure how to fit it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "giving feedback"? I don't understand.

Basically the subwoofer does not turn off and every five minutes or so would have several loud low frequency pulses - I have checked all cross wiring, etc. and can't find anything wrong. I'm guessing that the wireless set up is emitting a constant frequency pulse to keep the two unit linked and somehow the SW is sensing this as audio signal hence it stays on????

Feedback has a particular connotation for me, and what you describe ain't it.

The only wireless sub connection I've used is an Outlaw Audio OAW4 transmitter/receiver pair. It did nothing like what you describe. It's a 2.4GHz system.

Swap the two subs. Does the problem stay with the sub or with the wireless connection?

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

Ok. Thanks for all the suggestion. Let me clarify - essentially the noise that I'm hearing is SW "pops", basically popping noises, low frequency. I've tried swapping the SW that is hooked up to the wireless system and same problem. So frustrating.

So that points to the problem being the wireless system. Look at the system from Outlaw Audio, then return the current.

Or, the SVS has also been well reviewed:

That's a suggestion that I wish I had made.

This sounds like interference from other 2.4 GHz sources in the home. Make sure the Sunfire RX/TX units are not placed too closely to other source of 2.4 GHz in the house - like streaming devices, Wi-Fi routers, smart phones, certain baby monitors, etc. Also try to get the TX/RX 'line of sight', which can help prevent drop-outs and reconnections (which often are manifested as a pop).
