Klipsch Subwoofer sub10 power supply problem in India

I have a klipsch subwoofer sub10.
In the user manual it is clearly written that the
subwoofer should be supplied with the exact power
supply specified in the back side of the unit. It is
specified as 230V 50Hz, 1.0 A.
How can I get a proper power supply mentioned in
The subwoofer is down. No response. No LED. But electric shocks observed on the screws in the backside of the speaker when I touched them.
I trying to figure out the reason. This is serious becos it is the second time. First time happed just 10 days from the date of purchase. I got a replacement. This secod one worked well for 4 months and facing the same problem again. I doubt it is becos of the improper power supply against the spec. Please help me in this problem.

SOURCE: My Klipsch synergy subwoofer not working

No sound problem is power amplifier trouble maybe the IC there is defected or cold solder of joint of the parts.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

SOURCE: my amp overheated on a Klipsch promedia 2.1

Sounds like your speakers had too many watts sucking from an amp that couldn't produce the power to feed them.
What is the max watt power output rating for your amp?
Compare the amperage of all the speakers combined and make sure they are 15% lower that the rating on your amp. Be sure to include the sub in your totals.
Chances are you've blown the power supply on your amp.
Have you tried any of these checks yet?

SOURCE: Klipsch/KLIPSCH, not BOSE, pleaz HELP!!! -ifi wont play anymore

It sounds like I'm in the same boat as you guys. I just wonder if I can do this repair by myself. I have limited electronic experience. If it is just a matter of pulling out "x" and replacing with a new "x", I can handle that... but will I need to solder?

Looking for help diagnosing circuit board on sub12 venue series. It powers up red led, and goes green when sensing input. Power supply and speaker checks out good. Any suggestions? Thank You

the change from red to green is simply the auto sense of the input signal happening . have you ck the simple things first , like the volume control (im sure YOu didn't touch it , but maybe someone else did) , did the input jack sustain some internal dammge that might not be seen from the outside ? how did you ck the speaker ? did you sub it out with another known working one (doesn't have to be same size to try it) ???

I have a Pioneer VSX 823 - K, and when I hook up my Klipsch HG-12 300 watt subwoofer to it, the receiver is prone to overheating or just shutting off with too much bass. Is there a fix to this?

This is receiver thermal going in protect issue and has no bearing to your sub, The sub has its own power amp and not supplied by the receiver. Thermal module may be bad. See a tech.

Probably not, but you could make it into a passive subwoofer by disconencting its internal amp and powewring the driver directly by an external amp being fed by an LFE channel.

I did this with a problematic Klipsch SW.

Klipsch ksw subwoofer wont power on

The power supply switching transistors are likely fried. Dangerous high voltages involved. I would remove the plate and send it to Klipsch for repair.

Light on front isnt on at all..

Actually, there is a fuse. You need to take out all the screws and remove the two dials so you can take off the panel. Look to where the power cord connects to the board, and you will see the fuse. It is a 125V 4 amp fuse.
