I put a new amp in my sub-woofer, that I got under warranty as the one my sub shipped with was not working properly, I believe a part of it was Burt out because when I opened the sub up it had a strong burning smell.

The sub still worked, but obviously not very well, If I had to guess the part that was damaged was the power supply of the amp.

I would like to know, what settings other people with this sub use, I am a little worried turning this sub up, due to thinking it might damage it.

Right now I have the sub volume at 1 o'clock and the amp at 0.

I am loving this sub now with the settings I have set, its perfect it is night and day compared to how it was working before (it was barely functioning lol)

Has any one had their amp malfunction with in a year or 2 of owning their sub?

I am curious to know how common it is for these amps to burnout on their own so quickly. Maybe I just had bad luck with the amp that shipped with my subwoofer

Hi guys, I have 1 Velodyne DD15+' and an old HGS 15 sub, but I am looking at replacing both of them soon with either 2 SVS PB16's or 2 SB16 ultras, but what concerns me is that I am noticing quite a few of you owners have had amplifier issues, which concerns me. Just how reliable are these subs? They do get great reviews though. I live in Australia and I get a 5 year warranty, but I do not get the 45 day return option.

Do SVS subs have a volume knob my Velodyne had no volume knob and I fried it because I played it to loud.

Yes most of them do have a volume knob. After setting mine up i never mess with the volume knob but every once in a while i might turn the db's up a little in the avr depending on the way the movies lfe is recorded.

Some do and some don't. My SB13's don't have volume knobs, you have to adjust the volume digitally.
