Okay I tried a few things.
I switched patch cables just in case this one was faulty.
I set the subwoofer volume control to about 9 o'clock (low)
I set the amplifier's subwoofer output level to +10 db (!!)

The sub light still only goes from amber to green on loud explosions or other heavy bass notes.

Also, in some cases the light goes from amber back to green in like 10 seconds. Is that normal?

I guess I will send a detailed email to Axiom tech support.

The time from amber to green is presumably a function of the audio content on the DVD you are watching. It's the time from green to amber which should be controlled by the auto-on logic in the subwoofer. If you meant green to amber, 10 seconds does seem awfully short.

Separately, the one time I saw this problem it turned out that the wiring and setup from DVD player to receiver/amp was incorrect... they were actually listening to the stereo feed from the player not the digital feed with LFE channel. As a result, there was almost no LFE being fed to the subwoofer (just the low notes from the mains) and so the sub didn't turn on very often. Probably not the case here but thought I should mention it "just in case".

Andy, just want to make sure your using a COAX subwoofer cable? You mentioned "patch cable"... just curious.
