Question about JBL SCS300.7 System

Open Question

I have a JBL sub300, Humming & burnt board

I have a JBL sub300, part of the JBL home speaker set SCS300.7. The subwoofer has developed a hum, and in looking at the amp board, there is a large hot spot.
I'm trying to find a replacement board. The numbers on the board are 104SUB15000 V06 & SCS150PW
Any suggestions on board replacement or repair?

SOURCE: jbl sub300 has developed humming sound

Make sure all of your cables are seated well; this can come from poor shielding of low-level audio cables. If all seems in order, then the power supply for the subwoofer has poor filtering that can come from a failing electrolytic capacitor.
If you plan on DIY service, here is a link to the manual:

It is said to be 60 pages long.

check your connections, RCA, Speaker wires, maybe there is grounded. try other wires which you think in good condition..

My subwoofer makes a humming noise


In most cases when you have a humming from anything electronic it is being caused by a bad filter capacitor in the power supply. Filter capacitors look like little cans. Look for units which are bulging. If so replace them.Electrolytic capacitors are so cheap even if none are bulging you could replace them all for less than $10. Try that and let me know.

Humming from SUB333


Replace the plug, they most likely had a ground loop where it was plugged in and cut the common to get rid of noise. Replacement ends are easy to find at Home Depot, Lowes, ACE, etc. Try that first, if you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further. Hope this helps

Humming noise follow up


I'm fairly sure this is a power supply problem; less likely, a shorted power output stage which may be a largish integrated circuit; this last one would probably be costly to replace.
A failed diode or filter capacitor in the supply can cause this by either (the diode) allowing unrectified AC to pass or (the capacitor) poor DC filtering of the rectified AC. Neither of these parts is expensive.
Diodes can be in a variety of different packages so giving guidance on these is tough. Capacitors of the type likely used as the main filters in your power supply will be cylindrical objects between 1/2" (12-13mm) to 1 1/2" (~37mm) in diameter and between 1/2" to 3" (~75mm) tall. Caps are in aluminum cases with shrink wrap that will have values given in microfarads (µF) and VDC (Volts DC). Often, when they fail, the exposed tops will bulge visibly as a sign of their failure and sometimes they will leak from the bottom rubber seal and there will be traces of a white deposit on the board around them. If you see such signs, replace them.        
Checking power supply diodes could be done with any multimeter but unless the electrolytic capacitor(s) fails catastrophically as above, the main filter caps would need to be verified for value and losses with a capacitance meter which is too expensive to buy for home use. A plain-jane digital multimeter can cost <$20 US and would be useful for many other tests around your home and car as well.

JBL PSW-D110 Humming Loud


If I remember these correctly, there is a bad coupling cap in the amp section. You should see it as the top should have ballooned up. Replace the cap and you should be OK.

Noise when it turns on


have you checked your music source? Some systems like computers have a sort of output first before normalizing, which isn't your powered subs or powered amps problem. Try plugging in a regular solid state player like an ipod if the humming is still there when automatically turning on or off...

There is actually some good news.  I had this problem with my PB10s (1 have 2 PB10s and 2 PB12s) It is one of 2 things, the first is that it could be a capacitor and resister combination on the amplifier board (which was the fix for our PB10 with the same problem), or 2nd, the AMP IC, which is not available for the PB12. hmmm
