    I got this years ago and one day the system just stopped working. The power button doesn't not turn it on or off. The power goes on as soon as it's plugged to the wall with a thin mid peak on the satellites, but not the sub. I would like to fix it, but if that doesn't work, I would settle to bypass the system circuit and use it as a stand alone sub. The sub itself is one of a kind for computer system. It holds two subs set up isobaric. The bass response is very clean.

Bose subwoofer has no power when pluged in


Make sure your power outlet and your audio source are ok. If they are then the subwoofer's power supply is probably dead.

Dell a425 disassembly


I found this URL for you that shows a Dell forum where you could probably get all the info you need. It also has specifications for all the internals should you need to replace something. Good luck and be safe. I learned to hate capacitors a long time ago. :-) http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=DSN_E876EF53BCA3F058E030030ABD6260B2&isLegacy=true

No sound from subwoofer


If your subwoofer does not work on your altec lansing speakers,
more than likely you blew the subwoofer amplifier board.
I have an ADA-885 system and bought it brand new back in
November 2000 and has been flawlessly operating great up
until this past month when my subwoofer went out but my
"satellite" speakers kept working. After disassembling the
subwoofer box I first noticed that the subwoofer amplifier
board is seperate from the rest of the grouped boards for
the dolby and satellite speakers. The subwoofer box is
designed to use the air from the subwoofer to actually
cool the amplifier boards inside the unit, great feature
until your subwoofer goes out, that is when your main
amp will more than likely fail soon after the sub amp
fails, as it uses the air from the subwoofer to keep the
amps cool. I know this might be an older post but
hopefully I can put it in the right category to hopefully
be able to help someone out in the future.

You can test the ohms of the speaker with a multi
tester. It's a dual voice coil speaker, 6 ohms each.

Well my system is broke and needs another
subwoofer amplifier board so if anybody reads
this and has this subwoofer, I need my sub amp
fixed ! or if you have the subwoofer unit maybe
and nothing else to go with it but the subwoofer
lights up, give me a jingle, I'd buy it from you !!

My Mirage S10 subwoofer light comes on showing the subwoofer is on but I cannot get any bass sound to come on. How can this be resolved?


More diagnosis first. We can't assume the source is squawking bass to this thing and you don't mention that you know that to be the case. IS it? The problem could be up the food chain.

We also don't know if you're feeding it Speaker Level or Line Level.

Prove the subwoofer amp is dead or alive by jacking in any source you have that has an RCA output (Tape Out on your unnamed source, CD, TV, etc). Turn the sub volume down to minimum to start as most RCA outputs are at maximum volume. Try that to assess the amp's health. Still dead? Get it worked on.

My subwoofer IC got burned because i accidentally plug it to a 220v power supply, mine is only 110v i want to know the IC# subwoofer.


Most likely what got burnt is the bridge rectifier in the power supply section of the electronic circuit. This usually takes the shape of either a single 4-legged IC, or a group of 4 rectifying diodes connected in a bridge configuration. If you disassemble the unit to which the power cord is attached & trace the circuit starting from the terminals of the power chord, you can easily identify it. You will need to replace the 4-legged IC or the 4 rectifying diodes.
You will also need to replace the fuse, since it is usually likely that it gets burnt if the unit is attached to 220V instead of 110V.
