Submersive Amp Gone?
Posted 07 February 2012 - 02:37 PM
I came home from a 2 week holiday, i turn all my equipment back on. And the Submersive keeps clipping / popping very loudly. No idea why. I have tried unplugging input plugs, still keeps happening. I dont get it, why would it just suddenly do this, there were no problems all this time. I think a few other people had issues with their amps as well?

Hey mate, mine also failed it was a used amp. It turned on but i had no bass coming out of it at all. Just ring Mark direct and he will ship a new amp, he was very good about it i didn't have to wait too long
I am actually a bit worried by the high failure rate, as it seems like there are at least around 5-6 people if not more from the GB who have had their amps fail on them. To me thats quite a high no. for such a high end equipment is it not?

On my sub, i may have resolved the issue although it worries me as i think this might mean it will happen again / the amp is faulty....
I tried leaving it unplugged / turned off for a few hours etc and it didnt resolve it. But in the end i plugged it in and turned it on (but had no input going into it) and i set it to mute. Left it like that over night, the next day, i turned off the mute and the very loud clipping/ popping sounds werent there anymore. So having left it over night, seems to have gotten rid of whatever was going on there. But I havent really tried much with it yet to see if the performance or anything has been affected. I tried a test mode and it seemed to be putting out a signal but i havent tried anything that actually has any bass yet, so that is the only way to really tell if it is still pumping or not.

Electronics fail on occassion but I agree this failure rate seems high although one has to factor in the fact most were second-hand units.

In terms of repair i was offered the choice of having to send it back and they were going to repair it (so no choice of replacement amp) and that was going to cost me 115$ to send it back, but the other issue was i had no packing material to send it back in... I would have preferred it if they had given me the choice of them sending a replacement amp and then i can use the packing material from that to send the original back.

Yeah thats pretty poor form..With my amp they sent the new one no questions asked! Why on earth does he want an old blown one back anyway, so he can try fix it and put it into someone elses?
Well I had hoped that they would first send the new one out so at the very least i have the packaging to send the old amp back to them. Otherwise its hard to find adequate packaging that fits and that is extra costs, besides the 115$ that they organised through fedex.

wow, never heard that sound before. Can you hear it from your seating position?
Or the mission position, the standing position or argh...... the rear position.
