Question about Paradigm PS1000 Speaker

1 Answer

Lightning struck and my paradigm ps1000 doesn't work anymore.

When I plug it in it just hums very loud. I have already removed the amp and checked the fuse on the board. I'm looking for some advice on where to have it repaired, or if it's even fixable. Are parts are still available anymore?

Klh powered subwoofer model ASW10-120B... when you plug in to power... it makes a loud buzzing/humming noise


I would check the caps on the power supply. They are rather large electrolytic capacitors that will look like they burst and/or leaking. When these die, the caps ground and the sub will make a loud buzzing sound. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can replace them yourself. Replace them with the same voltage or a little bigger and same with the size.

If the cap. says 16v 4700pF on it, for example, a 20v 5300pF or a 16v 6200mF cap. will work for this application.

Zener diode and hum in guitar amp


It could be the diodes, but whatever is the cause it's before the pre-amp section. Generally a loud hum such as that with no effect by volume control, is mostly caused by the filter capacitor in the power supply. And that hum is the 50HZ mains hum getting into your system!

I have the JBL speakers which are really decent but i want them to be as loud as possible! if i plugged in my logitech speakers into one of the inputs that i would normally put one of my little speakers in...


It should be OK BUT if the JBL and the Logitech are plugged into different mains outlets you could get a hum from one or both sets of speakers. This hum is caused by an earth loop when the speakers are connect to different mains outlets.
The fix.
Connect a power board to a mains outlet and then plug the mains connections from both set of speakers and computer to this power board.

Loud humming noise and color is off


It does sound like the color wheel.If you can get your hands on a service manual it wouldn't be too hard. You have to remove light engine take off a couple of plastic pieces to get to the color wheel housing. 2 screws and 2 plugs to remove it.

PEAVEY TRANSTUBE AUDITION 110. PLUG UNIT IN POWERS UP . SITS THERE AND HUMS LOUDLY. SPEAKER WORKS. plug guitar in can hear it faintly, push lead chanel button in , hum gets super loud. HUM IS IN PROPORTION...


There should be an 8 pin IC close to the input jack that will be marked 4558 or 4560. This is an Op-amp Ic that is the most likely cause of the problem. Replace that IC and report the results here.

Peavey keyboard amp--Hum takes over all operation


Hi There,
Hum can come from all sorts of places in an audio amp system......
The shielding on the input cables may be broken.
An earth somewhere can be broken....which then allows "ground loops" to form and unbalances the earthing...causing HUM....

Your note about reducing the controls to zero and the hum is still there leads me to believe that the power filter capacitors or some other filter capacitor in the DC supplies have dried out.
Capacitors can also go "open" which can cause low level sound and HUM.

The motto is "Capacitors get "old" and cause hums"....
It looks like its time for a full service....the amp has done you very well over the years and its like anything else needs a service now and then to maintian the quality of sound expected...If there is one capacitor showing you its getting "HUMMY" then there will be others in there as well needing replacement....

High heat can kill an amplifier so while its getting a check over there will be checks for other problems in there as well..Hot running resistors which can dry out adjacent Capacitors...

Cheers for now YUBEUT
