SOURCE: M-Audio BX5a Speaker Problem

Not sure i can help with the led problem but i just fixed a hissing problem with one of my BX5a monitors. It developed a hiss when on (both tweeter and bass) and a very loud thump when switched off. I found a slightly swollen power filter capacitor on the internal board. They are the two biggest black capacitors, labelled as 25v 6800uf. Only one of these was bulging. The tops of these should be totally flat. The indented X on top of the caps make any bulge easy to spot. Worth opening it up and having a quick look. I could only find 35v 6800uf caps at my local electronics store but they did the job ($3 each). I swapped both out and it's now working great. An easy DIY fix, just be sure to always have the power cord unplugged before you put your hands anywhere near the guts of the thing. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: No sound from M-audio BX5a monitor

I have a pair of BX5a monitors hooked up to a video editing suite. One of the monitors is off. They are powered to a working electrical supply. They are driven off a Mackie DFX-6 with a 1/4" unbalanced connection. No blue light on the monitor, no sound or hissing on that...

Check the capacitor, if its swollen or rusty it needs replacing, also check the fuse.

Hi, cases like that always comes u. Earlier you said just replaced it, that's not too good for anew monitor speaker.

You could test the fuse inside the speaker if it's still working, might be power fluctuation that might have caused it to blow.but you need to test it. If it is the fuse,fine! you can replace it, it does not cost much to replace.

Also if i can recall,most new stuffs always comes with guarantee with it,right?. I would suggest you could take it back and get a replacement, and i guess if they see it,since it is on guarantee,they can fix it for you without even charging you a penny.

Hope that helped.

Thanks and feel free to pass on your comment.

Thanks for using fixya..

When speeeding up engine makes a huming noise

If it also happens when standing still then pop the hood, rev the engine and listen. Try to get an idea of where the noise is. I'd start my guesses at the exhaust system - depending on exactly what that humming noise sounds like.

One of my two year-old BX5a pair started making cracking noise. I am wondering if it's something I can fix myself. I happen to be an amateur radio operator and used to build radios when I was a kid and...

This would be burnt out voice coils. This takes some special tools and material to rebuild them. or ebay or amazon may have the things you need to rebuild it. It would likely come with instructions as well but there are how stuff works videos and maybe youtube vids as well to watch to see how it's done.
