KLH ASW8 Powered subwoofer keeps blowing 3A-250V fuses

The transistors at the output stage of the sub amplifier circuit might be shorted so each time you power on, the circuit draws a very high amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. It's definitely a problem with the circuit so using a higher current rated fuse would probably just result in damaging the amp even more. You should ask a qualified electronics technician to take a look at it. I hope you can fix it.

Rw12fuse blown klipsch subwoofer. The new fuse blows instantly. What else can I try?

If it's continually blowing fuses you have an internal circuit problem, best to take it in for repair at that point.

I recently purchased model vrvd640g and it continually blow fuses. my installer says the power supply is defective. can you help or replace the unit?

the problem can be solved my unit blew the fuses on the harness and actually melted the plastic that held the in line fuses in so i went to pep-boys and bought 3 hevy duity in-line fuses and cut and spliced them into the harness removing the 3 original factory in-line fuses and i never had that problem again and also for the cars radio fuse i replaced it with a higher amp fuse so i took out the 1amp red fuse and replaced it with a white 25 amp fuse or u can use a green 30 amp fusethey are all the same size they just dont blow with the new power load of the radio.

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

Bad output IC or voltage rectifier are the most likely at fault.

Starter fuse under the hood keeps blowing....the factory deck was replaced by a new deck...every since then the ignition fuse keeps blowing..

the new radio install is causing this if the power was taped into the starter system. rec. removing wires then try to see if you can blow your starter fuse

Fuse blows

Both 3 or 4 amp slow blow fuses are suitable replacements for the 3.125 amp subwoofer fuse.

It could be that the subwoofer is blowing the fuse because the one you installed was not slow blow.

But, more likely is the subwoofer has a short in the power supply which is causing the fuse to blow.
