    My Mirage BPS-400 subwoofer shuts off during quiet passages of movies and sometimes won't come back on! Its annoying. I have my subwoofer plugged into a wall outlet that I control with a switch and so I don't even need the auto-off feature. If I brought my subwoofer to Mirage [ conveniently located very close to me [​IMG] ] do you think Mirage could disable this annoying auto-off "feature"??
    I will check with them. Anybody else have this problem?

    1)try lowering the volume level on the sub, and turning up the receiver's output level for the subwoofer.

    2)also try splitting the cable and using both inputs on the 400.

    Very nice. Thanks for the info [​IMG]
    I'll give those things a try. I an't remember if I have it hooked up correctly. i think because I am experimenting with sound in the room, I have the fronts set as large and the subwoofer is being fed via the xover input so I can use the subs crossover. I know this has crossover overlap, but i'm experimenting in my small room. Seems boomy otherwise, but I'll tweak it and dial-it in eventually.
    I guess I should use the receivers xover? Right?
