M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse

Hi I've had a pair of BX8s for three years. One of them now blows its internal fuse when it's powered up. For a week or two before that, it was crackling slightly as though the sound was clipping. The other one is still working perfectly.

If your monitor is crackling and fizzing, that is not a fuse issue, unless the fuse you have installed is underrated. It sounds like you have a bad driver/woofer, and need to get it replaced. CLICK HERE FOR THE REPLACEMENT DRIVER for this model.

Fuses blow when there is an overload. This is most likely caused by the main power amp part of the sub. Or it's power supply. What's happening is that some part is acting like a piece of wire instead of doing it's job.
It's possible that the previous repair people fitted the wrong part and if you are using it at say high levels it goes again. It could also be caused by faulty speaker wiring. So check that after replacing the faulty part. It might be visibly burnt or broken if you look inside it.

I've got a Adam A5X studio monitor. the problem is that fuse blows after about 15 sec. it works but you can hear background hum and the transformer gets very hot in 15 sec. then fuse blows. i wonder...

Transformers RARELY fail. It is likely that either one side of the amplifier has shorted or there is a failure in the rectifier/filter circuit of the power supply. Take it for repair unless you are adept at electronic repair. Do NOT continue to replace the fuse as you MAY cause futher damage. Use a 25 or 40 watt lamp in series with your power cord to limit current while troubleshooting.

You'll have to remove the cabinet cover to access the fuse. It is in line with the power cord. 20 Amp, slow blow.

One of the screws on the back of the cover may be a security TORX (the kind with a pin in the center of the head). Usually, if you tap on it with a hammer, you can remove it with a pair ov Vise-Grip pliers.
