Subwoofer eating fuses.

Hello and thanks in advance.
I have a Mission 700 AS subwoofer that recently blew the fuse that was in it. I read the back of the subwoofer fuse input area, and it listed a replacement fuse of 2A - 250V.
I purchased these fuses and it ate all three.
There was a dull hum just before it blew the fuse on each try.
Is the whole sub shot or am I using the wrong fuses?

Thanks . Yury.

Re: subwoofer eating fuses.

Check the circiut board for any blown capacitors. Sometimes it's that simple as replacing a capacitor. But then again, what is causing the capacitor to blow??/ Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Mission M5AS Sub and for some reason it has just stopped working. The power light is on, but it doesn't become active when music is played. Simple to resolve or a job for Mission? Any...

Hi, yes there is a rather simple method for testing the actual subwoofer unit, simply plug in a known good rca cord into the input-make sure if there is a switch for level input that it is on the back make sure it is switched to line and not level, next plug in rca cord, turn on unit-stick tip of finger on tip of rca cable. This should gernerate a"HUMM" in the subwoofer if everything is working correctly. Thanks for choosing FixYa, I hope this was of some help,good luck Prodzilla.

Had a friend give me a mission 700 asi subwoofer....said it stopped working possibly the fuse...tryed a regular fuse "automotive" didnt it a "special" fuse??.....he took the old...

It is actually a 1.25A SB (for "slow blow") fuse. You can buy these at most any electronics parts source such as Sayal Electronics or Active. If the fuse is blowing though, there is likely another problem causing it to go. The electrolytic capacitors on the main amplifier board are prone to drying out and shorting so check them before you put a new fuse in. Look for signs of bulging on C10 or evidence of any excessive heat anywhere such as burnt looking parts.

Fuse problem

Why it always blew, then you have a short circuit. It is not your fuse is the real problem because it is a guard to your unit. Once there was a short circuit it will blew to avoid further damaged to some parts.
It is commonly due to a shorted parts on the power supply section. You must isolate the shorted parts to back your unit to normal.
If you are not a technician then you must look for a qualified one to trace the shorted parts. This will fix your problem.
Thanks for using fixya.

Mission m-cube sub fuse keeps blowing

If you have replaced with the correct rating and the fuse blows off then you will need to check for higher current drain in the sub woofer or the network. After replacing the fuse load up the subwoofer slowly, reduce the bass and as you increase check at the point the fuse blows off. Now we need to analyse if the rating of the amplifier you are using is rated for the subwoofer. If your subwoofer has a higher rating you can increase the rating by about 25% and check again. Some amplifiers give a very higher voltage on full bass which could result in such a condition. Moderate this and check again. If the fuse stays Ok you can continue with this new rating.Otherwise the output of the amp at higher volume needs a confirmation. Hope this helps. Good day

My Mission MS10 subwoofer keeps blowing it's fuse. Possible problems?

Anything in the power supply will cause it, look for damage or burnt parts, anything on heatsink. A transistor with a short circuit. For instance if you put an ohm meter probe to the leg of one and the other probe on to another leg, it will be read on the meter as if you had put your probes on the same leg.

Blown fuse in mission 700as subwoofer

if you have access to a multimeter, you should test you impedance (ohms) Ω, check to make sure the speakers reads higher than the amplifier needs; this will result in less strain on your amp and diminishement of sound...For example: if you connect two 4Ω
speakers in series it results an 8Ω circuit (least strain). and if you'd take the same two speakers and connect them in parralelle it would result in a 2Ω circuit (most strain).

Mission ms8/ms10

Silly question but did you check the fuse and if so is the sub pluged into the sub out put on your amp and not the sub six channel input as this will result in no sound.
hope this helps.
