    My new Athena as-p6000 seems to have died. [​IMG] Here are the symptoms. Please help!!!

    The led indicator is no longer lit. it is supposed to be red when sub is on and green when it gets LFE signal. All I hear is a humming sound like from the fridge. This seem to have started happening after I pulled out the audio out from my sat receiver while the sub was still on. Any ideas?

    I am not familiar with the Athena series. Is there a fuse which popped or a pop-up type circuit breaker on the amp which can be reset? Have you tried unplugging the sub's amp for 30 seconds to reset the power supply?

    That's what I am hoping happened too. I tried changing the power source. So I guess I need to take it back to dealer. Thanks for the response.

    Isn't there a fuse on the panel which you can inspect yourself? If it is, and it's molten, simply replace it by a similar fuse.

    If the fuse blew, there still may be a problem, and since it is a brand new sub, I'd probably opt to take it back in for a look or exchange. Feedback like that can cause damage very easily.

    ok... I took it to a local dealer and found that its maybe just the LED that blew. Since there wasn't any humming at the dealer's, I was able to ensure that the sub was still working. [​IMG] I changed a couple of things (the rca cable, power outlet) and that seems to have stopped the humming. Guess I got off easy....

    Are you looking into replacing the LED?

    Not sure if its worth spending 80 bucks (~40 each way) in shipping to the seller. I think I'll use it a little more to make sure nothing else is wrong, and pass if its just the LED.
