Question about Acoustic A-5640 Computer Speakers

Accent acoustics no power with transformer

I've lost the original power source transformer to my accent acoustics speakers, but see this unit (of 2 speakers and one subwoofer) is run by a 9v transformer. I have several 9v adapters in my "electronics box" and have tried them. However, none of them will bring power to the woofer and speakers. What do you think is the problem. Is it internal in the unit itself, or does it have to do with an improper transformer. Thanks for your help. Kathy Trawick

I have the same problem at the moment. I cannot find my power cord either.
One thing I noticed is that the polarity of this connection is opposite of all of my other 9V power adapters. The 'pole' is negative on this speaker set. That means that the inside of the plug (the hole) has to be the negative. See if that might be your problem. Finding an adapter with the correct polarity and amperage is key. I am trying to figure out the amperage by searching the web.

Although my turntable seems to be fine there is hardly any sound coming through my amp/speakers from it. I'm using a different power lead for it since I've lost my original but it fits fine an


your needle has worn down, or the RCA leads(red & white) arn't plugged in to the phono socket on the amp,or you haven't selected phono on the source select,or you have the tape monitor button switched on.

All static from the sound bar. adjustments don't help. tried different cables - that didn't help. System is not usable at this time.


The manual...

Page 7

Distorted sound from the Soundbar.

Change the Trim Level switch setting to a higher number.
Check the signal source to be sure the distortion is not originating there. <<<<<<<<<

The woofer seems to have interference with its wireless signal.

Try changing settings of the Wireless ID switches on both the soundbar and bass unit. <<<<<<<<
The bass unit could be too far from the soundbar to get a good signal. Try moving it closer.

What is the source device that results in static? How is it connected?

Need 24v power supply, where can i get one.


Hi JR,

You didn't specify AC or DC. That's ok, I'm having a two-fer-one special.

Doorbell transformers give back 24VAC

Two 12VDC batteries in series gives you 24VDC. Overkill?

Transformers from many HP printers ar between 20 to 30 VDC.

The source I use is GoodWill. In the electronics or computers section, they usually have a big box of them.

Hope this helps you out

Background hum


I fixed the same issue by replacing the original AC power supply with a 13.8 volt DC power supply (Radio Shack) It seems to be more consistent at high SPL and no hum , as the Boston acoustic unit accepts either AC or DC power.
