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.

Re: M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse

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.

Check to see who the manufacturer is. The Acoustic Research name was sold a couple of times. I think yours may be Recoton. If so, you may be able to get some help from them.

Tweeter not working??

Since it sometimes gices a sound, and i know the problem when it's not put it totally and does it. I want to know what it does with rca cables, trs cables and xlr cables and what it does and what ut doesn't. The connection inside in the trs and on one pcb , connected to your main pcb with three cables and it could be that one is not connected right. First of all. it's in the Netherland minimal twp years quarantee, since you may expect the speakers go allong min 2 years. Check you consumerrights, before start screwing.
And just measure your cables with a simple ohm meter or buy for 25 euro a cable meter....very easy and the costs ain't a thing.
gr. richard.... With all the cheap speakers and cheap connectors it might just as well beinig the connector inside, i hate them and replace them.

I'm a video editor (MAC OSX). I playback audio at fairly low volume. Recently, I turned on my speakers (BX5) and only the R came on. L was dead and inspection revealed it was "blown". Can't...

Hi, cases like that always comes u. Earlier you said just replaced it, that's not too good for anew monitor speaker.

You could test the fuse inside the speaker if it's still working, might be power fluctuation that might have caused it to blow.but you need to test it. If it is the fuse,fine! you can replace it, it does not cost much to replace.

Also if i can recall,most new stuffs always comes with guarantee with it,right?. I would suggest you could take it back and get a replacement, and i guess if they see it,since it is on guarantee,they can fix it for you without even charging you a penny.

Hope that helped.

Thanks and feel free to pass on your comment.

Thanks for using fixya..
