I have a pair of BX5a monitors hooked up to a video editing suite. One of the monitors is off. They are powered to a working electrical supply. They are driven off a Mackie DFX-6 with a 1/4" unbalanced connection. No blue light on the monitor, no sound or hissing on that side. I changed the fuse with the supplied backup and it powered up and the light faded quickly and was dead agin. Can you help?

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.
I would suspect the Mac isn't passing any audio out. Test it with headphones before we troubleshoot the audio hardware. OR, connect a different audio source to the preamp to see if it works with something less complex than a Mac.
Since the NEC is not a TV but a monitor, it does not have a tuner nor speakers that it why it has no RF input. So if you want to watch TV on it you need a cable box with an HDMI and an audio out, and a pair of amplifed speakers. You can use the cable box's universal remote to turn your monitor on and off.
To get TV video, get an HDMI-to-component video (red/blue/green) cable then to get audio connect the cable box's red/white RCA audio out with an inexpensive set/pair of amplified PC speakers. For this you need a 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter to hook these up properly.
Because the audio is coming from independently powered speakers, it will be nice to have a set that goes on standby when there is no audio signal from the cable box. This would eliminate the need for you to stand up and power off the speakers when you have shut down your TV (monitor) and cable box. Or even better, get one that has a remote so that you can raise or lower the volume or power off as needed.
Not sure i can help with the led problem but i just fixed a hissing problem with one of my BX5a monitors. It developed a hiss when on (both tweeter and bass) and a very loud thump when switched off. I found a slightly swollen power filter capacitor on the internal board. They are the two biggest black capacitors, labelled as 25v 6800uf. Only one of these was bulging. The tops of these should be totally flat. The indented X on top of the caps make any bulge easy to spot. Worth opening it up and having a quick look. I could only find 35v 6800uf caps at my local electronics store but they did the job ($3 each). I swapped both out and it's now working great. An easy DIY fix, just be sure to always have the power cord unplugged before you put your hands anywhere near the guts of the thing. Hope it helps.
Youll have to run sets of cables from your head unit to the seats, youll prob only need video, power, and ground if the sound will come from your speakers. For the same display on either monitor run to first position then link the 2 monitors.
