Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Purchased a polk audio psw250 powered home subwoofer(used).The owner stated that It would not power on,so I figured It was a fuse.Got It home and took the amp off the box and sure enough the fuse was blown.Went to radio shack and purchased the same size fuse(1 amp 250v)In both the fast blow and the slow blow type and each time I plug It In It blows each type.The sub Is In really great shape and would like to fix It but I figure This Is more trouble then Its worth.Can anybody change my mind here?

Polk audion psw250 subwoofer has humming noise


Humming noise on your sound is not due to your speaker but it is come from the amplifier. I've encountered a lot of this problem that is caused by the electrolytic capacitor. If you are a technician first locate for a dry joints on the board and then resolder it using your soldering iron and a high quality soldering lead. Resolder not only the capacitor but also around the output I.C.
If nothing happen then it is coming from your output I.C. sometimes it was leaky/shorted which produces a humming noise but first do the the above mentioned instructions before isolating the defective output i.c.

Could be the power supply but the transformer may
have opened up due to a "surge". Might have to contact Polk to see whats up and/or dealer as the
amp may need sent in for repair!
