    Lately, I have been noticing a difference in the way my SVS sounds. In short, instead of the nice low rumble that I am useds to, I can also hear a distict vibration when my sub hits the lower frequencies. For example, it went from BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM to BOOBOOBOOBOOBOOBOOBOOM. Does anyone know what I mean? I haven't changed the position of the sub or the level in which I listen to movies. Does anyone have any Ideas?

    Thanks,
    Marc

    It is the 2039CS powered with a Marantz 125 watt mono amp. I also did check for loose screws and everything was fine.

    Is the port tube still connected properly? I've heard that on occasion it has fallen out.

    I had that same model - never really changed it's sound over the years...months....

    I second the call to SVS they will answer your question quickly.
    Does this happen at all volume levels? Have you checked and double checked all your connections, too often a bad patch cord can cause a lot of grief. . . .

    Try substituting a different amp, if you can. That will eliminate the possibility of a bad amp.
