Question about Altec Lansing ADA 885 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Subwoofer fuse 'holder' missing.

I have an old (late 1990's?) Altec Lansing ADA885 desktop computer speaker system which is missing the fuse holder on its subwoofer. Does anyone have an idea where I can get a replacement part, or perhaps some way of bypassing it in any way? Thank you!

    Hi, thanks for replying. Its been a few years since I used these speakers and I don't have a way to describe the part I'm missing other than what Ilittle I remember about it.

    Its a small, round, black plastic, screw in cover that fits over the fuse on the back of the subwoofer case. It holds the fuse, and I suppose the bit of metal it had on it must complete the circuit? Anyway, that is the part that I am missing.

    I'd hate to throw away these speakers since they are in great shape, and only missing one small part. But, if I can't find one soon, I guess I'll just have to dump them and buy some new speakers!

    Thanks again for the reply.

Tape or solder a piece of metal across where the fuze and holder would go.
OR
go to radio shack, pick up a small cartridge style fuze holder and an appropriate replacement fuze. (if you dont have the original fuze, dont bother with this method) Open the box or case to gain access to the circuit board. solder a new holder to the contacts.

Be aware that I have no clue what the fuze holder on that particular model looks like.

Altec lansing ada885 took a dose of 240V, burned fuse in place, replaced fuse, worked for about 2 hours, now nothing


Well is the new fuse still good or out again. if its good, then you probably fried the main board on the amplifier. These computer speakers do not handel big power serge's.

Lost my fuse + fuse cap for altec Lansing 621 during a move, does anyone know a place to get one and part #? I would assume they are still using the same fuse cap and fuse in most their other models so if...


Most fuse holders tend to be STANDARD sizes with regard to mounting holes and fuse sizes

Your idea of going to radio shack is the best as the ones they stock are also STANDARD and even though you may end up buying the whole fuse holder just to get the cap the cheap prices would be worth it.

If worst comes to worst you would have a WHOLE holder to replace the one that is in there if you dont mind doing a little soldering.

That is the setup guide for the speakers.

The two wires plug into a cable that then that single cable plugs into the computer, this way you have sound coming out of the left and right hand speakers.

My Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers have stopped working. I probably downloaded some other software that overrode the Dell speaker installation. How do I reinstall the Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?


The speakers are probably fine. What you probably need to do is to reinstall the sound drivers on your dell.

You need the model of your dell pc and go to the dell website and find download and install the sound drivers for your system.

The model of your pc will be needed if any more assistance is needed.
