Question about SpeakerCraft BassX-10 Subwoofer

1 Answer

Blowing fuse My Speakercraft BassX12 started blowing fuse about a month ago. I figure the AMP must be shot. Can I get a replacement AMP rather than replace the whole thing. I'm hoping it would be cheaper. Tx

I once rigged and old audio vox 8 inch sub into a box for a 12 inch cerwin vega had the same issue i just stepped the fuse from a 15amp to a 35amp had no problems after that.-z (you could also just solder the two wires for the fuse holder together if you have them eliminate the fuse or put a bigger fuse in).-z

My speakercraft BassX-10 speaker gets awfully hot, is this normal


check the max wattage for the speaker, should be on a plate or label. If your amp is supplying more than the speakers rated input? you could be slow roasting your speaker to death.

A few days ago the subwoofer stopped working. Yesterday I turned the system on and it wouldn't work at all. I discovered the fuse had blown. I replaced the fuse, couldn't find a slow blow fuse so had to...


Try removing the wires to the subwoofer and then hook a "aa" battery to it and see if it makes a pop sound..this will tell you if speker is ok...if it is then I think the amplifier sectionj for the sub is what is blowing the fuses...you are probably right..it looks like it's a 1 A fuse...but if it's blowing right away..it may be circuitry related

Can you post the markings on the transistors themselves? I will look up what I can and try to get you a more common substitute. Post what eve information you can about the transistors and I'll see what I can find. The model and the output specs that are published for the unit would help too. Thanks, Dan

Fuse blows


Both 3 or 4 amp slow blow fuses are suitable replacements for the 3.125 amp subwoofer fuse.

It could be that the subwoofer is blowing the fuse because the one you installed was not slow blow.

But, more likely is the subwoofer has a short in the power supply which is causing the fuse to blow.

JBL PSW-D112 Speaker fuse blow immediately after replaced


The fuse is designed to protect the circuit and prevent fire. When a fuse blows it is because it is getting to much current through it.
In some cases it could be because you replaced the fuse with one that did not meet the specs of the required fuse, there are different types of fuses and you should always replace with exactly the same type of fuse.

Do not replace with a higher Amp fuse, you could end up frying the amp at least. It's not a safe thing to do since there is an off chance of fire from using the wrong fuse.

If you have the right type of fuse installed and it is still blowing, then refer the unit to a qualified service center for repair, or look for a new replacement Amp.

AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse


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).

Burning smell


The amps do have issues that is for sure - That is where I step in - I can repair your amp and make it so it won't burn up (catch on fire) again. When the amp goes it burns a hole in the board - but it can be repaired. I have done several hundred and all customers are happy :) ... Look for my add here and also on ebay

Try disconnecting the speaker that you added. If the sound comes back, then you're ok. Just don't add any more speakers. If not, then it's possible the amp is blown.

Too many speakers connected together to one output can cause an overload and either blow a fuse or trigger the protection circuitry. If the protection is triggered or blows a fuse with all speakers disconnected, then your amp is shot.

Hopefully, that's not the case. Try disconnecting all the speakers and see what happens. If you still get the error, then the amp is gone.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
