Question about JBL PB12 Subwoofer
My subwoofer lights flicker on the front green/red/green. Also a clicking sound. It smelled like an electrical burn of some sort. no power surge. I took out the board and their is a black burn spot on the board. Can it be repaired? Thank you, Daryl
I had the same problem...replaced the C42 capacitor with one that I got from RS...fixed everything and all is well again. I only have moderate soldering skills, too, so if I can do it, so can you

Yes there are a variety of Capacitors that go bad on these amps - some have to be upgraded Volts wise and others are just the wrong value - it is a very poor designed amp to begin with . The amps do have issues that is for sure - That is where I step in - I can repair your amp and make it so it won't burn up (catch on fire) again. When the amp goes it burns a hole in the board - but it can be repaired. I have done several hundred and all customers are happy :) ... Look for my add here and also on ebay
