Question about Spherex Xbox 5.1 Surround Sound System Computer Speakers
My Spherex XBOX surround sound system won't stay on. If I flip the on switch and then turn on the power with the remote control it stays on for about ten seconds and then turns itself off. I can't figure it out and the company is no help. Any ideas?
Mr. Vargas is right mine also won't turn on and upon further inspection I found burn discoloration on the boad where the two power cables are connected. The burn spot is where the four diodes are locaed and the big power cable connection. I am not sure how to replace these diodes or where to find them. Never done this stuff but will try for sure. Please post if you have any suggestions. thanks

Oh yeah, I got the Diodes from RadioShack

I had to go to a bigger diode to fix my problem, I went with part number 276-1144 (3amps/400PIV).

Good Day Everyone.
I acquired said speakers off a family member with the same problems. Spherex went out of business but the main head company exists in Canada. I spoke to a representative from the head office, the spherex xbox system suffers from cold solder issues and catches fire because of it. When I pulled of the assembly off the sub woofer box, I noticed that on the board the sub woofer speaker and power transformer are connected to, it had burn marks on where a bank of 4 diodes and power resister are connected. That area needs to be resoldered to adjoining solder spots. this will stop problems with power and sound issues. P.S Make sure diodes didn't burn out. Audio Products International (API) still has parts for sale.

That is easy, something is causing it to overheat and the system has a self shutdown. If you can keep the unit on without it shutting down than it is not a heat issue. First check for heat issue. Make sure it is getting enough air flow or that it is not clogged. Find your warranty, you likely have a power problem if it is not heat.
