Question about JBL SCS125A System
My sub is making a "heartbeat" noise even with no audio feed. It is plugged in to a surge protector (I tried two different strips that are working with other components). The audio feed is unplugged and it makes a thump-thump on a regular interval. Any idea? Blown fuse?
You need to check your ground connection. If there is a bad ground there will be feedback to the amp and it will just sit there and loop back with the Thump, Thump, Thump sound. I had to wire my amp's ground all the way back to the negative battery terminal. It was a pain but I have never had a problem since :)

I have Bose sound bar that is thump thump thump it's really annoying any one know why
I've checked all connections
I'm running it through the aux to headphone jack
As the optical cable won't give any decent volume

I'm having the exact same issue after several months of use... Every time I turn on my sub, there is a loud Thump, Thump, Thump, Thump which stays at a constant volume, regardless of the volume knob level in the back. Sounds exactly like someone tapping on a loud microphone in perfect timing. I disconnected my audio signal cable completely from the sub and it does it as well... tried different electrical outlets, and different switch positions on the back... auto or not, it still makes the "heartbeat" sound. It does this for about 10 seconds and then goes silent... when everything is connected to the receiver, it will play perfectly for a while and then at random times will break back into the Thump, Thump, Thump.... It drives me crazy... any solutions? Looks like a quality issue.
