Re: subwoofer unit not powering on

Your sub woofer's transformer is probably damaged...You can check for this using a multimeter..Also check for any open circuits btween the transformer and the power suply..Most likely its the transformer itself check this first..

Why is Philips Boombox not working from mains without batteries?

When you plug a cord into a two pin connector that I assume is on the side of the box, it should disconnect the batteries inside. If taking the batteries out kills the power completely with the cord still attached, then the switch on the power socket in the unit is NOT connecting the built-in power supply.

Hallo my bosh pb360 s not work only the outlet have power

You blew an internal fuse. There are two glass fuses inside. Unplug the unit, flip it upside down, remove screws and four from roll cage so you can take it apart. Inside you wil see both fuses and will be able to determine which one to replace. Be careful to make sure subwoofer wire is connected before re-assembly!!!

My woofer is 18' 600w rms power. so what is the

Basically you cannot break you woofer with too powerful amp, but you can break it using too weak amp. This is because if you don't have enough watts going to you woofer the cones movement isn't controlled properly. I'm usually using +20% to the woofers RMS and peak power. This will also make the amp last longer because you won't use it at it's peak performance all the time. If possible use manufacturer whose prising policy matches your woofers manufacturers, that way you won't end up with "2000w peak power" cheap amp with real output of 30w. and in the other end cheap woofer won't handle expensive amp with real 600w rms so well, you need to find a midlle way here. Hard to say without knowing the make and model of the woofer.
This is a taste question for some people, and I haven't build a system to match so powerful woofer ever in my life. But I'm pretty sure you won't go wrong with this one.

My 637 tweeter coil is open circuit -what now ??

Hi there,

I take it that you are measuring this from the speaker terminals themselves. This means you have a break in the cable somewhere.

Have a look to see if there are any screws on the tweeter which aren't to hold it in the box, chances are these will unscrew and allow you to disassemble the tweeter.

You need to be very careful while doing this as you could cause even more damage.

When you have unscrewed these screws, gently lift the front panel away from the magint, keeping everything as straight as possible. Once you have seperated the front plate you will be able to see the voice coil itself. There will be 2 very very fine wires leading from the speaker terminals to the voice coil. Check that these are intact. Chances are that there is a break in one of them which is causing your open circuit.

If you have a very steady hand, it may be possible to reconnect this wire by soldering it, in which case do so and re-test from the terminals,then re-assemble the unit, again being very carefull to keep all parts as straight as possible when rebuilding the unit.

I have fixed several speakers this way, so take your time, be careful and the best of luck.

Hope this helps.

My boombox is displaying the word "Protect" in the display. ???

The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier section. This unit will require repair as a reset will not clear this. There is an audio amp IC inside that needs to be replaced. Figure on about $15 or so for the part.

Radio plays sometimes, won't others. is getting power, fm stereo indicator lights up when tuned in to a station, but no sound from the speakers, not even static

maybe the amplifier inside is failing if you turn it all the way up for a second and it comes on then it is the amp but if you wiggle the vol and it comes on the its the vol switch
how did the speakers sound ?

No power to unit

Remove the power plug and reopen the unit. Usually the socket will be soldered directly to a Printed Circuit Board. Look in the underside (where the solder joints are and you'll see the joints associated with the power socket. One of these is either a bad connection or the solder pad has lifted and broken the track on the PC board. If it's the solder pads give them a workout with a soldering iron if it still plays up scrape the protective lacquer of the PCboard Tracks and resolder them to the socket's solder joints. This should solve your problem. The best way to spot a bad connection is to reinsert your plug (making sure the other end isn't plugged into the wall socket) and lever the plug up, down, left and right. If there's anything faulty you'll see it. The solder joints will move very slightly and if the track is fractured you should spot that too. One other tip is that there is a switch built into the socket which will disable the battery power when you plug the unit into power. I have seen a few of these switches go bad but the chance of that is extremely small. I'd put my money on the socket's solder joints. BMW
