Dahlquist PDQ 1200 subwoofer

I had an electronics guy hook up a new receiver and then say my subwofer fuse was blown replace it with a "larger" fuse. The unit began smoking and had just a humm. The transformer was very hot. I need to know if this is salvageable and where I can get a new transformer if so.

First make sure that the cables are properly connected up. Make sure that the output of the amplifier feeding the sub is working properly and has no faults.

If the above is okay, it is possible that the power supply in the sub, and or the output stage has a failure. In this case the sub will require shop service to have it working again.

Our ten year old paradigm ps 1200 subwoofer does not power up, although it is plugged in and properly connected to the receiver. Why is this? Is it a lost cause?

Disconnect the power, pull the amplifier out by undoing the screws that hold it in.
When you pull it out, look closely towards the top there is a little 1.8A fuse. It probably has blown.
Replace that and you should be back in business.

All of a sudden, the subwoofer crackling with no way to stop it

That is a problem in the internal circuit. The proceedure is very technical, and I don't think you would like to learn how the theory of how amplifier works so you can troubleshoot it. If you insist tho I can try to explain.

Blown subwofer?

I believe what you have now is known as a subwoefer. Toss it.

Fuse on subwoofer keeps blowing

Subwoofers draw a tremendous amount of power. With the amount of heat generated by amperage flow and the movement of the voice coil, you may have burned out the coil. Do a resistance check across the coil. Easy check? Temporarily attach another speaker to replace that one. Use LOW VOLUME and slowly work the vol up,and, if the fuse does not blow, it's the other speaker.

I have a set of phased array dq-10's from the 70's. TO pull the woofers you need to remove the grill, four screws, 2 on each side, and the four screws holding the woofer in place will be exposed. Inside you will see a green and a white wire. It is harder but easier in the long run to un-solder these leads as opposed to snipping them, good luck.
