Also try plugging the RCA cable into the line-out jack--the line in and line out are actually the reversible--electrically, they're the same thing.

Yes, I did test the high level inputs, and they work.

How about running into the Line Out jack?

I know it's been said already but you realllllly need to call Axiom. They are very friendly and helpful. At the very least, if the RCA jack on your sub is broken, they will arrange a fix for you.

Using the high level inputs negates all the bass management you can do on the receiver. I would want the RCA jack fixed, if that is indeed a problem.

Thanks to both of you -- that's a very useful suggestion. Well, line out sort of works a little. There's some sound, but it's very faint, even with the sub volume up all the way. Maybe some faint sound was there using line in, also, and before I just didn't notice it.

Greg, there is more than one individual on this forum (rvrrat and argon) that have this same issue. Normally, unplugging the AC to the sub and plugging it back in fixes the issue temporarily, but after a short term goes back to the symptoms you describe.

If you call Axiom, they will resolve your issue. We are all tweakers, but sometimes you can't tweak that what is broken.

A known issue, eh. That's good, and I'll try unplugging the power, as a diagnostic. I'll call Axiom soon, but for a little while, I'm going to be listening. The person who sold this to me seemed to think it was an EP175. Should I feel guilty?

Not if he sold you a faulty sub.

Caveat venditor! ;\)

If this is the system you mentioned over at AVS and you can get the sub working properly you got an awesome deal.

that bad thing is it won't be under warranty since your not the original owner, if there are issues...
