SOURCE: Subwoofer

Repeated fuse blowing generally indicates a blown power supply, or blown output stages or both. One thing to do is be sure that you have replaced the fuse with the correct type. A T stamped into the metal of the fuse near the rating, indicates sloblo or Time Lag fuse. A fast blo fuse, may work once, or more times, but will never replace a sloblo fuse in this type if unit. Good Luck, hope this info helps, don't hesitate to hit me back here for more help :)

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.

SOURCE: AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse

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).

SOURCE: fuse on subwoofer keeps blowing

Subwoofers draw a tremendous amount of power. With the amount of heat generated by amperage flow and the movement of the voice coil, you may have burned out the coil. Do a resistance check across the coil. Easy check? Temporarily attach another speaker to replace that one. Use LOW VOLUME and slowly work the vol up,and, if the fuse does not blow, it's the other speaker.

How do I hook up the receiver to the subwoofer to the tv


Here's the Owner's manual -> https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.paradigm.com%2Fdownloads%2FOM-100.pdf.
There are many ways to connect the system depending on your receiver's outputs and the speakers. Usually, the TV L/R output connects to one of the receiver's inputs. The receiver's preamp sub output goes to the powered subwoofer. The receiver's FL/C/FR/SL/SR/RL/RR speaker outputs go to the respective speakers.

What would cause paradigm sub12 not to power on


The inside of a subwoofer isn't really a great place to put an amplifier, that that is what you have. These things do go bad from time to time.

You may be able to get it repaired, or you could replace the amp. You're looking for a "plate amp". Parts Express has a good selection:

Klh subwoofer keeps blowing it's fuse.


Most likely the amp in the sub has blown. It will need repair or replacement. I'd take it to an expert in repairing amps, it's not a job for you unless you're experienced in troubleshooting these things.

Paradigm pdr80 no sound


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

KLH ASW8 Powered subwoofer keeps blowing 3A-250V fuses


The transistors at the output stage of the sub amplifier circuit might be shorted so each time you power on, the circuit draws a very high amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. It's definitely a problem with the circuit so using a higher current rated fuse would probably just result in damaging the amp even more. You should ask a qualified electronics technician to take a look at it. I hope you can fix it.

2001 mustang v6 automatic convertible keeps blowing fuse #10 (park, tail lamps)


The fuse doesn't blow till you turn on the light switch? If it blows before turning on light switch, look for a short to ground between fuse box and light switch.
If it blows after turning on light switch, I believe they make a short finder tool.

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.
