    When you buy cheap crap, you get cheap crap performance.

    Apparently, something is faulty. Likely with the Phillips sub circuitry. Test both items with alternate equipment, then take the faulty component in for repair or replacement.

    Sounds like it is malfunctioning. Hope it's still on warranty. The amp isn't recognizing it or remembering it. Perhaps it needs to be closer to the amp or maybe there is a source of interference/noise. If it is on the same circuit as noisy devices like can openers or vacuum cleaners

      Might be broken. They don't work forever. Don't know if there are internal batteries. See if there are other ways to setup the system, optional ways to connect. Find the manual that came with the unit or search on line for trouble shooting.

    It seems that hardly anyone has problems with equipment that is interconnected with wires.
