    Hi All, I'm having a similar issue on my PSW505 amp. I get constant crackling and popping while its plugged in. It's 3 years old but gets very little use- it's in a basement rec room that we watch movies in a few times a month. It's probably out of warranty, I'm sure. Is there a source for the amplifier boards? Seems like a horrible waste to pitch a sub that has $3 worth of failed capacitors on it.

    Hello,
    The bass amps come with a three year warranty, try and find the exact date of purchase. Polk sells replacement amps for $150.00, but as a member of Club Polk you get a discount. I believe they are currently out of stock, but believe they'll have them in three weeks. For information call them at: 1-800-377-7655.

  • Hi, My Psw505 has the same problem, the light does not go from red to green, Any one here has a schematic of the board they dont mind sharing.
  • Hello,
    Let me try and get the amplifier's schematic and I'll send it to you.
    Regards, Ken

    Is it possible to still get a schematic? Support keeps telling me that it is only accessible by technicians but looking at this thread... a few people have it.

    My PSW505 is doing the same, red light (sometimes) and buzzing with heartbeat but no output. I purchased from Amazon Jan 2016 so it's out of warranty. I bought it for $169 so I think a $150 repair is out of the question. Can you send me a copy of the schematic? Thanks.
  • Hey all,

    I have two PSW505 subs and I had this occur on both amps. Both were replaced and now the replacement I got in July has now crapped the bed and Polk will not replace the replacement since it is out of warranty. Service number from July is 200612-001275. Any help from a Polk manager would be greatly appreciated. I’m getting a little disenfranchised with having this persistent issue.

    Thanks,
    Matt
