View Full Version : ...could use a little technical advice...

06-22-2016, 04:36 PM
I am the pleased owner of an Outlaw LFM-1 that has served me well for several years. Never had a problem...until now. Although the little green light says it's powered up, there's nothing coming out. Since I have 2 subwoofers in my system (a little Energy ES8 is the other one) and my system is in a small room, I didn't notice until yesterday that the big boy wasn't doin' its thing! I've checked the interconnect, the power cord, toggled all the toggles, switched all the switches, rotated all the pots and...nothing. I also switched interconnects between the two subs and they are both putting out a signal. Either the little green light is lying to me, or there's somethings else going on.

Any thoughts?

It could be a dead amp in the sub.

Try plugging it into another source and if you still don't get anything, I'd wager Blackraven is right. The good news if it's that amp, a replacement isn't too bad:

If you can't find a direct replacement for the stock amp and it is in fact a blown amp then one of these will fit the bill and probably be better than the original amp. I have used them and they are very good for the money
