Question about Philips HTS3450 System
Thanks for the post. This was an easy fix. Mine has been out since Hurricane Rita started the condition. The parts are readily available at the local Radio Shack & most anyone has eyes better than mine to soldier the fix. Just be careful with the three-conductor molex connector is a bit shortchanged on slack when trying to remove/unplug from the Subwoofer chassis. Thanks again & good luck!

As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.
