Question about Mission M5AS Subwoofer

Open Question

Mission M5 as

I'm a skilled technician and I've repaired several amplifiers but I*ve absolutely no plan of this amp.Symptom is the relays doesn't click and so you can't here a sound. But the fuse hasn't blown up and the transformer delivers ye,bl,ye 24,2 V AC and after the rectifier + - 32,3 V DC and red,white,red 44,9 V AC and rectified + - 61 V. So this seems to be o.k. Then I've looked for the power transistors. On the bigger plate there are two 2SC3519 and two 2SA1386 .They have no internal conduction and I can measure ~ 0.6 V Ube. This should also be good. But on the little plate the is also a pair of these power-transistors and there i can't measure a Ube.
So i will solder them out. But i don''t understand how the amp really works.
A there 3 quasi paralel Complementary power stages (push pull ),
What i need is at least a schematic diagram or a service manual . I even don't know the correct idle current. I would be very happy if you could help me With kind regards M.Reinhardt

    Not sure if I have the same problem, but my unit seems dead. I would like to have the schematics to do the failure analysis from. Can you help me ?

    i have a similar problem, the amp just stays in stand by mode. i replaced the power transistors because they were shorted but it doesn't seem to want to fire up.

SOURCE: Mission speakers...i think i've blown one of them...

I'm guessing you mean one of the bass drivers (as standmount or floorstanding speakers don't have subs as such). Place your hand lightly against the driver when playing some music at normal volume, there should be some vibration (this increases the louder you play). If there's no vibration, you're probably right.

Contact Mission, who can send you a new driver, contact a Mission dealer to see how much it'll cost to go through the dealer network. I'd recommend going down the latter route if you are unsure of what to do yourself.

Just noticed you posted this in March, in which case, I hope you got it fixed (or are enjoying your new pair instead!).

SOURCE: blown fuse in mission 700as subwoofer

if you have access to a multimeter, you should test you impedance (ohms) Ω, check to make sure the speakers reads higher than the amplifier needs; this will result in less strain on your amp and diminishement of sound...For example: if you connect two 4Ω
speakers in series it results an 8Ω circuit (least strain). and if you'd take the same two speakers and connect them in parralelle it would result in a 2Ω circuit (most strain).

SOURCE: Mission 780s (from early 1990s) tweeter gone?

Hi there.
Do you have the make and number on the back of the magnet?
Check if the tweeter is at all available on the net!
To have it repaired is also an option.

Leave the brass plates in place and make sure they are TIGHT. They're for separating the internal drivers so one could power them with separate amplifier sources - bi-amping.

Connect the plus and minus speaker cables traditionally, one to either pole.

Removing the plates would silence whichever speaker is NOT amplifier-driven.

It's bi-wireable (BUY-wire). Did it occur to you that may be a factor if you're using it that way? The jumpers (or lack thereof) on the back allow or disallow the amp(s) to affect all the drivers. You can tie any amp to one or the other pair of binding posts to test them.

I would be grateful if anyone could advise me here. A pair of Mission MS70C2 8ohm speakers I am considering buying....Would these be ok to use as 2 higher up speakers with my Mission 7.1 (All 6ohm) set up,...


I don't think it will make any difference for your amplifier when you use 8 Ohm in stead of 6 Ohm. These impedance is measured on one frequency and will differ all over the audio spectrum. It could be a problem, if you try to connect 1 or 2 Ohm speakers, because they could ask a to much of a current. but don't be afraid to put these to your amp.

Problem with Phillips FA 443 Amplifier


I have a similar problem with my Kenwood Basic M1D , C2 setup. Move the input select switch through all of its selections a couple of times, this will clean the contacts and should give you a couple of years more life. Or get the Amp serviced there are some very good small Hi-Fi shops. Incidentally the earphone port is usually a signal taken before the amplifier but after the pre amp so is unaffected by the power amplifier. Unfortunately it could aslo be a failed channel in the amp. These can be repaired or replaced and will be cheaper than a new unit.

I've just been given a pair of working Mission 780 speakers. There are 4 connecters on each speaker and 2 brass plates linking the left inputs to each other and the same with the right ones. What's the...


Do not remove the brass plates! These work as a bridge between the connections, making them a universal speaker. You only need one input. The other input should say "Bridge", which is an output to the other speaker, allowing you to run these speakers as monitors or subs. The bridge option runs both speakers on the same channel, making it a mono signal, so if they are used as monitors, everyone hears the same thing. If they are used as subs, equal power goes to each, reducing the chance of a blown speaker.


Hope that helps!

Mission m-cube sub fuse keeps blowing


If you have replaced with the correct rating and the fuse blows off then you will need to check for higher current drain in the sub woofer or the network. After replacing the fuse load up the subwoofer slowly, reduce the bass and as you increase check at the point the fuse blows off. Now we need to analyse if the rating of the amplifier you are using is rated for the subwoofer. If your subwoofer has a higher rating you can increase the rating by about 25% and check again. Some amplifiers give a very higher voltage on full bass which could result in such a condition. Moderate this and check again. If the fuse stays Ok you can continue with this new rating.Otherwise the output of the amp at higher volume needs a confirmation. Hope this helps. Good day

The best sound would be with all speakers matched, same brand, same vintage. Any good quality amp with 5.1 and higher should work well. Stay away from low end brands.

I blew the circuit board on my jbl pb12 subwoofer. how or where do i find a replacement and is it expensive or a cheap part to fix/replace?


Sorry to hear that. The JBL PB12 are notorious for their amplifier module giving out. This item is not repairable nor is there a replacement (The module is potted into an aluminum heat sink). Actually, I need to clarify, as the late models used discrete components. If this is the case, either Repair it yourself (Google search PB12 Repairs) or take it to the local repair shop. (Or to a technical college with an electronics program, they may work on it!)

The best method is looking for a plate amp to replace the PB12 Amplifier - try the bash 300W. Several people have done this conversion. Be warned, you will need to do woodworking if you want to mount the plate amp on the box!
