Off, on, auto. On auto, green light is on. When tv/soundbar shut off after a while, is the green light suppose to turn red?

    I think that that probably means that the sub has turned itself off in order to save you money on your power bill. A lot of subs do this, but with all of the Polk subs I have had experience with they don’t turn red. But a lot of subs do, like my Velodyne sub, and many other subs. Does it turn green when you turn on your music and it receives signal?

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Yep, red means it's turned itself off if the switch is in the Auto position. It'll turn green when it turns itself on, also it'll be green if the switch is in the ON position.

    You would think Polk would use the same functionality across all their amps, that way no one would get confused... my LSi amps and my friends PSW10 stay green all the time no matter where their switch Is set. If I was making these subs, I’d make them all have the same functionality so that I could use the same parts, but maybe there is something I’m missing...
