It turns out its most likely one of the resistors on the PCB on the amplifier plate.

My uncle has had the same problem and managed to replace the resistor and its working as normal now.

Well, so far so good. I reinstalled the newly repaired amp and fired it up and so far, so good. Ran it through about an hour of fairly intense break-in tracks and then ran it through about 2 dozen power up and down cycles to try to get it to fail (better now than a month from now and have to fight them on backing it up).

I have the Onkyo SKW-200 and the fuses are blowing also. Plug it in and the fuses blow instantly. My brother has the same sub and the same thing happened. Our subs only worked for about 1 month before they went out. Do you think it is the power supply?

SOURCE: audiosource AST-Sub 10 subwoofer. it blows the fuse when turn on.

It sounds like your audio amplifer has a short (probably the out put transistors or module). This should not be an expensive epair.
To check your speaker you can use an ohm meter. First, pull of one of the two wires that connects at the speaker. You should read 4 to 8 Ohms. Also you will hear a little pop through the speaker as you touch the wire. You can also use a 9 volt battery in the same way.
Good Luck

If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

A few days ago the subwoofer stopped working. Yesterday I turned the system on and it wouldn't work at all. I discovered the fuse had blown. I replaced the fuse, couldn't find a slow blow fuse so had to...


Try removing the wires to the subwoofer and then hook a "aa" battery to it and see if it makes a pop sound..this will tell you if speker is ok...if it is then I think the amplifier sectionj for the sub is what is blowing the fuses...you are probably right..it looks like it's a 1 A fuse...but if it's blowing right away..it may be circuitry related

I have a 110v power input Paradigm PDR10 and would like to convert it to 220/240. I'm sure it's a case of change the series connection to parallel on the transfomrer but I'm not sure the exact functions...


I have the same problem. An external transformer would step down the voltage, but it wouldn't help with the frequency, which would still be 50Hz. Paradigm says there's a risk of burnout if an unmodified PDR-10 is run at 50Hz rather than 60Hz

Our ten year old paradigm ps 1200 subwoofer does not power up, although it is plugged in and properly connected to the receiver. Why is this? Is it a lost cause?


Disconnect the power, pull the amplifier out by undoing the screws that hold it in.
When you pull it out, look closely towards the top there is a little 1.8A fuse. It probably has blown.
Replace that and you should be back in business.
