    I have a Bravus subwoofer and have a somewhat dumb question…but given some recent set-up changes I’m left confused!

    I’ve had this sub in my dedicated home theater for about 3 years and always recall the red “ready” light and I feel like the light would switch to green when it would go on.

    I moved a few weeks ago into a new construction home with a theater. I was setting up my theater and when I began the speaker test the sub was dead. No lights (red or green). When I shut it off the red would flash for a moment then disappear. I tried a few different plugs. Nothing. Also noted some other lights in the area weren’t working either. Long story short, I had the electrician come out and he said he found a “loose wire.” My sub now has the ready red light and the lights that were dead are now working. All seems good.

    Tonight I was testing the sub and noted that when it turned on, the red light went dark…no green light. It seems to be working…I can use the controls on the front and the LCD lights up. Bass is coming out. The surge protector it’s plugged into has it’s green LEDs on. It just seems odd to me that there is no more green LED on the back of the sub. If I turn it off, the red light flashes like before when I has having problems. When I turn it back on the red LED comes on, then shuts off as the sub starts outputting bass.

    I only had about 10 min to test so didn’t get a chance to do a full range of tests or calibrate, but this was consistent behavior. Should I be concerned that the green LED doesn’t come on? Does it indicate I still have an electrical problem?

    Thanks for any info

    Hello Chris,

    Hmmm, it sounds to me like there could be a loose wire going to that LED which turns it green once it detects a signal. It’s not a problem I have encountered before, but if the sub is otherwise working normally I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    Please let me know if I can help out with anything else, thanks!
