18 Classic 30 Subwoofer - signs of life?

I just moved the sub away from the factory's location under the middle section of the settee to under the curb side recliner. This was a simple move and I improved the mounting arrangements to give a better base than the factory's flimsy plywood stand. In the process I checked for any control switches or sign of life on the sub because I was not convinced that it ever worked. I did not find any switches, knobs or otherwise on the sub. I tested with a solid rock base track (Amanda Marshall - Let it Rain) while feeling the the sub and really did not detect much/any action. The connections seem good. Can anyone offer ideas on what/where to check if the wires are actually connected at the other end? The Polk Audio app has the subwoofer grayed out suggesting that it does not see it, so I suspect that there is a switch or a connection not made somewhere. I did check the box under the Blueray stand and there did not seem to be any connections or switches on it to match the sub wiring. Advice from the audio experts please!

Mine did not work and I had it repaired at my one year warranty claim. Not sure what they did. I know the connections at the sub were tight and it had power so I assume the radio connections weren't hooked up.

There is a door on the right side of the sub that you can open with a screwdriver. Inside you will find several controls that Airstream usually does not turn on. There is a thread on this. Make sure there are two lines running to the sub. Red and white. Turning the first knob up (left) will blow you out of the trailer.

And then there was life! Found both the Gain and Crossover dials at minimum settings. Gain now set a little below 'blow us out of the trailer' and the sub has come alive. Thanks Airforums!

I had a similar issue. The sub was barely attached under the sofa/recliner. The grill was mashed into the actual speaker. I bit of work to straighten things out and as noted adjustments to the control. Works great nowClick image for larger version

Ours works but I'm going to take a look and do a little adjusting myself. Thanks Turk!
