    Subject: Sound is unstable
    Date: 15.09.2021 03:32:47Name: marc jones
    My Polk Audio HTS 12 12" 400W Subwoofer just arrived yesterday. When I plug in the power and LFE cable the subwoofer can't seem to hold the volume that I turn it to. It will play for a few seconds at the selected volume then it goes completely quiet. I have check all the connections and the same cables work just fine with a new Definitive Technology subwoofer that I received two days ago.
