Question about Acoustic Research AR1 Speaker
No power going to one subwoofer on my AR1 Speaker. Took off Sunfire amp off back. Found three fuses. Bottom small 5 Amp 250V blown. Replaced it and it blew immediately upon turning on power. Tried again. Same result. Any ideas? Thanks.
I sent my Sunfire/Carver amp from AR1 speakers to AB Tech Services alredy 3 times. They just changing some parts, without
analysing the problem. I lost any hope that this problem will be solved.
Carver just sucks.
I had the exac same issue. It started out with buzzing sound, but then quickly evolved into blowing the main 250V 5 Amp fuses immediately. I sent mine to ABTechservices.com and they found some blown resistors and leaking capacitors. I'm waiting to get it back (shipping to me now), but supposedly they have replaced and tested and all is working well. I'll let you know how it turns out.
The price they charged me, including return shipping was $187.50

Well, so far so good. I reinstalled the newly repaired amp and fired it up and so far, so good. Ran it through about an hour of fairly intense break-in tracks and then ran it through about 2 dozen power up and down cycles to try to get it to fail (better now than a month from now and have to fight them on backing it up).
