Question about Cambridge Soundworks P200 Subwoofer

Open Question

I have a cambridge soundworks sub and all was well until I moved it and thinking if I had the correct output from my marantz recer to the sub. Before I used two coax with rca phono jacks. Now it has blown 6 fuses, 3.5 amps, 250 volts. Does the sub have to be up right to keep the fuses from blowing.

Hey! So i fixed my problem! This is for the BassCube 10
Like i said before i saw that the circut board was burnt near the diodes ZD3 & ZD4, and the resistor R63. Thanks to Deadly1 and BillRad62, i figured it out. The R63 is a 1200 resistor, and the diodes are 15v zeners. I went with 3x 5.1v zeners to replace ZD3, unfortunately Rip-Off-Shack (Radioshack) didnt have 3 packs of these so for the ZD4 i put a 12v and 5.1v. Which exceeds 15, but seems to work without a problem. Hope it helps!

Use the PRE-OUT SW (subwoofer) output and connect it to the left RCA socket of your subwoofer.

SOURCE: How can I replace a

Its pretty simple actually.
If you already have the same size new tweeter. You take off of course the large felt cover so speakers are exposed on front. Just like your picture is in this post. Then you should see some screws, most likely it is going to be Phillips. Then unscrew all the screws, the whole front should slide out with of course speakers still attached, don't pull out to fast or far, to make sure the internal wires are long enough to take whole front out and set aside speaker box, the on back of speaker should be two wires going to it, maybe three if is tapped in conjunction with a ground. Anyway on back of speaker unplug the wire from speaker and then, take out screws which is normally on back of speaker, pull speaker out, put new one in and repeat steps in reverse order. Hope this helps. Mike

I have used the sound test to check my CS 5.1 system. When I test the subwoofers, there is no sound. I have played CDs with deep bass, no sound is emitted from the subwoofers. I have T-500...

One step at a time. Get the subwoofer to work, THEN play music through it.

You don't describe the electronics, IF you have a sub defined, whatever other steps it probably needs to pass LFE to the sub.

The audio input jack is loose i'm guessing, so when i plug in the wire i have to move it around to get the sound to come out. i'm tired of having to move the wire every time it plug it in, what can i do to...

first of all try to replace the audio cable. if it has break inside then the same problem can occur. replace the cable and check the same.
if then also the problem remains. i think you are connected the cable to the R mono input. remove it from R mono input and connect the same to the L input.
there is no difference between the R and L input. if you connect it any input you will get the same out put.

If then also the problem remains then you have to replace the RCA socket in side you sub woofer. It will be difficult for you to replace the same. any way make a try.

Has humming sound when powers on

You may have a power problem. Check to make sure that your wires aren't touching and not crossed.If this doesn't help try plugging in you sub to different plug could be getting interference electrically in the spot it's in

Lost Speaker Sound

It does sound like a connector issue, don't you think?

What happens if you DON"T touch the connector but move the volume control on the controller?

Have you tried looking outward toward the source?

The line fuse blows on power up. Input impeadance to the power transformre is 3 ohms. Is this correct? seems low.

Ohms law I=V/R which is 240vac divided by 3 ohm = 80 amps. Dead short which is either the windings, or the mains filter capacitor which has gone short circuit which is more the likely culprit. This is on the output side of the fuse. If you have a meter switched to ohms and measure across this capacitor you will read zero ohms (dead short) which confirms the capacitor. Disconnect one side and if the short goes, then it's the cap, if not, it's the transformer.

the correct size fuse is based on amps, not volts. The correct fuse rating should also be displayed on the chassis of your sub, if in doubt take the original one to an electrical shop and let them identify it for you.

Home theatre sub

Sounds like a ground loop issue. Try plugging your sub, and the rest of your entertainment equipment into the same outlet with an extension strip (4 plug adaptor). If there is too much stuff to plug into one strip, experiment with combinations and hopefully you will find which piece of gear is the culprit.
