Last night I was awoken by a high pitched noise and some clicking. I walked over to the sub and the light by the auto on/active switch was flashing red. I switched it to active which made it stop so I could go back to sleep. However, upon watching a movie it still flashed red and the sub had a rhythmic thump (same timing as the clicking). I tried turning it off and on, same problem. There was no storm last night, no power outage, and the sub is connected to a surge protector/power center. Any thoughts as to what went wrong?

The sub should not be making any sounds while it is in standby. When playing music or a movie the light on the back of the sub should be green as well.

You should make an inquiry to the support staff at Axiom regarding a possible problem with the amplifier on the sub. Almost always these types of problems are amp related.

I sent an email regarding the problem as well.

In the meantime while you wait, unplug the power cord on the EP350 from the power center/surge protector and leave it unplugged for a few hours. Plug it back in after that time and turn the switch back to auto/on and then try some music or a movie.

If it is still the same, leave the sub unplugged until you have this issue resolved with Axiom.

What type of power center are you using? It's generally not recommended to plug your subwoofer into one because of the possibility of an in-rush, which may have happened to your EP350.

I know Axiom recommends that you don't connect their subwoofers to power centers, because of this.

yup, my subs are plugged right into the wall outlet. I would also try unplugging it for 10-20 min and try again.

I never heard of this "in rush " phenomenon... Gar. Anyways, I'm working with support to resolve this, thanks for the input.

Don't worry about this "in rush". I've had various subs from 4 or 5 different makers plugged into a surge protector, none of them ever had a problem. Sounds like hog wash to me.

If the same things are still occurring (both plugged into a regular outlet and the power center), you need a new amp. It's that simple. You say it is a V3 so it should be covered under warranty.
