Question about PreSonus Firebox 6x10 External Sound System

1 Answer

Doesn´t work anymore

Connected my laptop to the firebox and the blue (or red) light doesn´t turn on anymore. The same happened when I plugged the power adaptor. The computer doesn´t recognize it anymore. It´s weird because it was working perfectly a few hours before and it happened without an apparent reason. It didn´t fall from its place or was hit.

    Same here, have used my Firebox for almost three years. I moved my PC into another room and it stopped working! I have encountered problem after problem w/ Firebox. It worked then minutes later stopped and now the PC doesn't recognize Firebox.

    What gives? Anyone?

Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?

If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.

Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.

The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?

Good luck!

Presonus Firebox doesn't sync up.


1. check the drivers update for you device
This is found at the manufacturers site.
2. See if your device is compatible with the OS (operating system) on your laptop.
3. Check the connecting cable to see if you have a broken wire inside the "strain relief".
The cord at this point will have a puffy part that indicate that there is a broken cable.

My firebox just seemed to stop connecting. the blue light comes on for a second then goes red on both firewire ports...is it my fire wire card on my pc or the firebox?


IF YOU HAD ANY RECENT UPDATES ON YOUR PC.IT MAY HAVE CHANGED SOME DRIVER SETTINGS. UPDATE YOUR DRIVER ON THE PRESONUS WEBSITE. IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD CABLE.

Sounds like you have a defective FireBox. If you can, exchange it at your retailer. If this is not possible, please contact techsupport@presonus.com to arrange for a return authorization.
Alternatively you can try to search out a solution to your problems on our forums HERE.
