Onkyo skw 591 light is on and no sound? any thoughts?

Hello, To test the subwoofer when the blue light is on if you apply your thumb to the end of the subwoofer cable (the end that you would plug into the receiver) there should be feedback from the sub. If there is no feedback then the sub is not working correctly. Thanks, FJD

Got a cerwin vega cls 12s keeps blowing fuses. It has been well kept and all the connections are in the right place. It pop's before the light can come on. How do I fix, radio shack just down the road.

by the sounds of it the internal transformer could be duff. You need to take readings from the transformer using a multimeter to check correct voltages are coming out of the transformer to their destinations. I would also chek the capacitors and other components on the chain pre and post transformer to make sure none of them are damaged too.

MTX Lolita Sub amp defective power transformer (open primary) What's the transformer voltage?

Without Knowing the Output Chip or transistor Numbers, I don't know but Most 100 Watt anps use 60 to 70 Volt Centertap Sacondarys. Also if You Take the Cover off The Transformer you will find a Thermal Fuse in the Primary. I have bypassed the Thermal Fuse and went with a external fuse, Go for it.

The mains input fuse (4amp) and a (1amp) fuse on the main power out board were blown. Replaced fuses and switched on, blown again, disconnected output from transformer to main board (4amp) fuse did not...

The cheapest option is to replace the transistors (a quick check on google will tell you how much they are). If they are common transistors you will be able to find them and get them quicker then searching for a board that could be no longer being made.

Powered Subwoofer repair--- Transformer issues?

Well yes transformers do fail and the transformer does say it has an internal fuse fitted which might have failed. The fuse on the board blowing is an indication of overload. The fact it didn't blow again shows that it is not getting any power or the fault has gone (doubtfull).
I doubt the transformer is a step up. But follow the circuit on the pc board till you come to electroytic capicator. This will have a voltage on it. The power level will be no more and perhaps less than the voltage on the capacitor. Another clue to the power level is if the secondary wires are narrower than those that go to the mains. That will indicate that less voltage comes out.
OK what to do. Well most makers say that the transformer is a safety item so it has to be replaced with the same type or one which is approved by the maker. So you can either contact the maker direct or find a service center, (for the brand) which might order you a replacement, or take the transformer to Radio Shack with details of the model number of the Sub, and see if they can get it for you. While there have a look at the multimeters. You should find one that will help you for all your future needs. I recomend one with a scale (rather than a digital). They are some around for £10 to £20 (I know you live in the USA but you can convert it) that will do what you might need it for.
The first thing to do if you get a meter is check with the ohm setting diodes or bridge rectifiers for shorts. IE: as if you had touch both probes together! Also do the same with any transitors you might find. As this could be the cause of the fuse blowing, and even the transformer's failure.

Have the KLH ASW10-120 Powered Subwoofer and it is blowing fuses

If it stays on for 3 seconds then it probally is not the transformer. However it may very well be the power amp no way to tell untill we operate. Call Pro Line Music 215-736-8055
