Question about Infinity SM 255 Speaker

1 Answer

Repair or replace?

I have a set of Infinity SM-255's. Recently one of the subs stopped working and after inspection found there to be a rip/split at the bottom of the sub. Is this what a "blown" sub is??? Do I need to repair or replace it?
I currently run a Yamaha RX-540 rec through the Infinity's.

If the sub requires replacement, could anyone advise me on what brand to replace it with, due to Infinity not producing the SM line anymore.

Regards,

If the rip or split extends from the voice coil out to the edge, the speaker may be too far gone to replace. I have repaired expensive speaker cones with epoxy cement, provided the tear is fairly small or narrow. No noticeable degradation of performance either.

Inifinity Entra Sub not working


The hum can be from the power supply not properly filtering, and or the output stage also has a short.

There is the chance that the speaker driver coil is now burned, or the power supply is now dead. If ther output stage is shorted and was putting DC on to the speaker cone, this will burn it very easily.

You should sent the unit out and have it serviced, unless you are properly trained, have the service and engineering manuals, and the test equipment to follow up on a proper repair and calibration.

Infinity PS-10 quit working


I think the electronics have a 3 years warranty and the drivers have a five years warranty for this product, maybe you can have it replaced. Maybe the auto on/off signal detector is the culprit.
