Question about Mackie SWA1501 Subwoofer
I have a Mackie 1501 sub. The last time it was used it refused to power up after a couple of nights at the same venue. The lights come on for a second and then everything shuts down. It was being used as part of drummers monitor system at the time, with a seperate feed running from a kick drum mic so the drummer could "feel" his kick. Do you think it is possible that it was set too loud?Is there other internal fuses that would shut things down to stop more damage?
Hi There, There are 3 internal fuses to check that clip onto the main amp board. You can access them by undoing the two screws that are on the top and the bottom of the sub. They have flat large heads and you will need a hex key to unscrew them. If it is one of the fuses that has gone it will either be discoloured as in burnt or you will see the metal inside has split. Simply replace these with a new fuse and hey presto you should be back up and running. You might also want to check that none of the push on cable ends have dropped off fom the board as this may also stop connection going through. If you need any parts for the sub or fuses then www.LondonSpeakerShop.com will be able to supply them (that is if you're in the UK). Hope this helps. Grant (from www.LondonSpeakerHire.com)
