    Hello,
    The best thing to do is call Polk at 1-800-377-7655 select option 1 and have the serial number handy when you call.

    ok thanks. called them. they said sound bar has gone into PROTECT MODE for some reason.

    It is very unsettling that month old $500 sound bar has become useless without extensive use.

    Something probably just failed. Tends to be the norm with electronics, unfortunately.
    Did you push it hard before it started? That could have caused a short in the subwoofer driver and caused the amp to go into protect.

    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.
    Seen somewhere on AudioKarma (I think)
