  1. I checked the caps, and none of them looks bulged or broken. The resistor he talks about though, was kinda toast. So I changed that, and all caps around it, and the TIP120. Still no luck. Exact same issue. I'm kinda sad right now. I'd rather buy a new amp and be done with it. If I didn't care for the looks, as the system blends nicely together since its the same series of products, I'd buy another brand and sell this. I took this one to my local electronics repair shop, and the guy told me it's of pretty low quality for such an expensive subwoofer. I'm very disappointed.
  2. Hello, my name is Vasilis, I am from Greece, and I own a Klipsch Home Theater setup, using the Reference Premiere 280 series of speakers and R-115SW subwoofer. My subwoofer died on me one night, during standby. It started making a noise on a steady tempo. Like a beat. I can't do anything to stop it, and it doesn't play any sounds at all when I power my system up. Only the constant beating noise. I tried replacing the 820Ω resistor as a user in this forum suggested, and several components nearby, but it still does the same exact thing. 1) Where can I find a replacement amplifier, and how much will it cost ? 2) Can I power the subwoofer with an external amplifier ? Like I do with my speakers? Thanks a lot in advance.
  3. Thank you. I will enjoy it as much as I can !!! nice to be here
  4. "The earth is shaking beneath my feet.." That's EXACTLY how this subwoofer feels !! No I don't mind at all. I was only curious about possible problems that this might cause. But if there is no problem I will just leave it like this. Thanks for your quick response. I'm looking forward to buy the next pieces !!!!
  5. Hello everyone, this is my first post ever. ( You can skip the next two parts, and read just the Question ) [Intro] My name is Vasilis, I am 26 years old, living in Greece, and I'm a fairly new Klipsch user, and basically a new user of Home Audio in general. Other than some average "pc speakers" I never had anything special. I really wanted to build my own Home Theater though, so after a lot of thought and digging up posts and reviews I concluded that Klipsch is for me, for several reasons. [Info] 5 Months ago I started building the system, and my first buy, were the Klipsch RP280Fs alongside the AVR. I was pretty stunned by the results I got, but obviously I could not stop there. I would like to expand the system, until I ultimately reach a 5.1 or 7.2 setup. As I am not rich though, and these speakers are really expensive here in Greece, I buy the parts one at a time, or two if they are a set like fronts or rears. [My Question] Yesterday I bought the Third part of my Home Theater Audio setup. The Klipsch R-115SW. I've tried it for several hours, and can honestly say it's impressive. I love the sound. And I don't think I ever heard bass that low in my life. That being said, I found out that the LED Indicator in the front side of the Subwoofer is not lighting up. The sub is connected to the AVR using one RCA cable connected to the L/LFE input, and I use the "Auto" power mode. I also tried setting it to ON. Still no LED. Other than the LED the unit seems to be working perfectly. At least I think so. Knobs for Amplification and Filter work, the Phase switch works, and the sub is clearly producing sound. Is this LED going to cause any problem ? Or does this indicate that I need to return it? Because if the problem is just that (the LED) I don't really care. I will not return a 35kg subwoofer just because the LED does not work. But just in case I wanted to ask you since someone in here might know a bit more than me. Thank you very much in advance. I am looking forward to your answers. I can post pictures or a video of the setup if you wish.
