    I just bought a used receiver and it came with some surround speakers. I noticed last night that the subwoofer kept shutting down on its own and would also come back on, on its own. I watched the green button go to red, then back to greeen. Is this due to the Power Save button being on auto on the back of the speaker? Why does it shut down? would turning it off eliminate the problem. Just want to also make sure that its not the receiver.

    Thanks

    Many subwoofers have an auto on/off feature. When the sub detects a signal, some are more sensitive than others, it will turn itself on. After not receiving a signal for a few minutes it shuts off. Some subs are maybe to sensitive and auto on when there are surges and spikes or other variations in the ac lines.

    Check the rear of the sub to see if there is some kind of adjustment to the sensitivity of the auto on/off or a switch to shut that function off. Some suwoofers have the feature to adjust it or shut it off and some don't. If you could tell me what kind of sub and receiver you are using I may be able to help you further.

    Thanks Seth,

    I am using a Sony STR-DE995 receiver with Sony SS-V345 speakers. The sub doesn't have an adjustment on the back, only an auto/off button.

    Thanks,
    Brian
