I have a Pioneer SP-SB23W sound bar with wireless subwoofer

Customer Question

I have a Pioneer SP-SB23W sound bar with wireless subwoofer that goes to "sleep" after the sound bar is turned off and then after a period of time is turned on again. How do I wake up the subwoofer? Mine will not work after a shutdown.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, have you tried:

  • • moving the subwoofer closer to the speaker bar;
  • • moving any/all WiFi enabled devices further away from both the subwoofer and the speaker bar;
  • • or even turning these WiFi devices OFF for test purposes;
  • • turn ON the Pioneer before turning on any other devices such as the TV, cable box, DVD players.

All others would require internal circuit checks.

Please post back results / observations of the above if/once tried.
