DSW Pro 440wi Power cord wiggles loose

My Polk DSW Pro 440wi power cord gets loose often shutting the subwoofer off. Guess I will have to tape it on somehow. More elegant solution?

    It's a friction fit, so a layer of electrical tape around the plug should do the trick. Elegance is preserved if you use black tape of course! :smile:

  • So the black tape fixed the perceived problem of the power staying on. I say perceived because of the following. I am now seeing the unit go into standby mode in the Auto mode. It stays on in the On mode. I have the crossover set at 90Hz on the Yamaha 475 AV receiver. I have Polk TL350 5 speaker satellite / center. I can't detect the sub listening to a TV audio source. I could the other day listening to a dvd after wiggling the power cord. Of course, the setup is over 5 years old bought in 2013.

    I have found that dialogue heavy content may not have enough bass to keep my DSW 550 on when in the auto mode.
