Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have had a set of B&W LM1 speakers for 7 years and had absolutely no issues. I use them with a Klipsch 10" down firing sub of about the same age. I have always used them with an older Sony receiver but recently switched that out for an Onkyo TX-20 after being advised that the sony receiver was not powerful enough to be running all 3 components. One day I turned on my music and noticed there was no bass, perplexed i connected the source directly to the sub to trouble shoot (usually i get the low tones on beat with the bass, just no vocals) this time i got the saddest little electrical buzzing/crackling sounds as if the sub was being choked. To add insult to injury now one of the B&W monitors smells of burnt rubber and only the tweeter is functioning. please help me understand what has happened to my beloved speakers, I'm positively heart broken.

SOURCE: Is it possible 2 connect altec ada995 to sony KDF 50E300 52 in TV

I was in the same situation you are in when I got my new computer. Provantage sells this little adapter: http://www.provantage.com/logitech-970150-0403~7LGTC96V.htm

The only problem is, since the genius who made this model didn't put an external volume control on the speakers, there is no way to control the volume. they operate at full blast. which is, as you know, heart stopping. to combat this problem i used another adapter I found at radio shack(http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103710) and plug it into my tv's headphone jack.

hope this helps. If you find another way to control the volume PLEASE let me know.

SOURCE: Boston Acoustics VR960 Crackle

I just finished repairing one of my VR960 units with a similar problem. My problem was that the sub would crackle no matter what input level. After changing a few of the active components, I finally discovered it to be a capacitor which was faulty. Anyway, I replaced the three 100uf 25V capacitors on the main board and all was well.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Klipsch ksw subwoofer wont power on

The problem is Klipsch's problem, and they don't seem to want to face it. My 10" subwoofer blows the fuse before the power light can even come on. It's obvious that the fuse is not strong enough, but there is a delicate area between the fuse and the power supply. Too many amps on a fuse may keep it from blowing, but it may cook the power supply. Kipsch needs to fix this, tell us how to fix it, or replace it...at their expense. This should NOT be happening. Otherwise a great speaker....when it works.

I have a Yamaha HTR 5960 receiver hooked up to a Klipsch 10" synergy sub. The system has been set up for about 6 years and the sub suddenly quit working. I have checked connections and the sub is getting...


If you remove the signal cable from the amplifier while the Sub is switched on (turned down about half way) you should hear a thump sound. If you do that proves that your sub is working and you need to look at your Yamaha. Perhaps the sub channel has been disabled in the logic settings. Check the speaker configuration pages. If all looks well reset your amp to factory settings and try again. I have had a logic glitch which was fixed in this way.

I have no sound coming from surround speakers and sub.


Some surround modes switch speakers on or off as required. It's possible that the inputs you are using have settings that remember your previous settings, ie: no sub and surround speakers. Check the inputs and also make certain that whatever is connected to them is putting out Dolby signals.

I have a Klipsch Sub-10 It is NOT working. I am not sure what happened. It was just fine last week. It's powered up and everthing but not throwing any bass. It was also detected during the auto setup.


If you're saying the auto setup produced sound then the sub and its amp are fine.

So we need to examine the source electronics for actual playback settings. Give a hint of what that might be.

I have the klipsch sub-10 subwoofer, making noise after use


it sounds like the sub is rubbing in the voice coil.
put the speaker in upside down to what it was before.
sometimes that extra bit of downward pull is enough to offset the error.
There are speaker reconing experts out there but it is cheaper to replace the sub itself.
the sub can be replaced for sure.

Klipsch sub 10 keeps blowing fuses


More than likely the power supply switching transistors have fried. Also check the large caps in the primary side of the power supply. If you don't know what your are doing do not attempt to fix the power supply.. very dangerous voltages involved !!! Send it to Klipsch for repair or purchase a Bash replacement panel http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=300-750

Klipsch subwoofer


its all about impedance matching...did you check to see that the new yamahas would drive from the system, before installing them? sounds like you will need to possibly add a matching transformer or other device on this one.
