Question about Acoustic Research Audio Players & Recorders
My Acoustic Research AR5 tower speakers have a side-firing bass speaker powered by an integrated power amp in the speaker. There is power getting to the speaker and the green light on back of the speaker indicating the sub amp is on is lit. But, the bass speaker isn't working. The other three speakers in the cabinet that do not require their own power source are playing fine. I checked inside the cabinet and the internal fuse is still good. Couldn't find a reset button anywhere. Did my integrate amp just go bad?

SOURCE: replacing sub speaker
I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.
Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.
Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.
This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

The problem is Klipsch's problem, and they don't seem to want to face it. My 10" subwoofer blows the fuse before the power light can even come on. It's obvious that the fuse is not strong enough, but there is a delicate area between the fuse and the power supply. Too many amps on a fuse may keep it from blowing, but it may cook the power supply. Kipsch needs to fix this, tell us how to fix it, or replace it...at their expense. This should NOT be happening. Otherwise a great speaker....when it works.

SOURCE: Sub-woofer driver rattle/buzz.
Bad news! It sounds like the coil is rubbing inside the magnet of the speaker! There's no cure, when the cone is warped it it knackers it up. Had the same problem some years ago with a Wharfedale speaker. Someone told me you can hit it on the part where the cone joins the magnet -with a hammer!
Anyway it didn't make a bit of difference! And the speaker was chucked.

within the sub amplifier is an electronic amplifier, that is shorted and blown a fuse. This is all internal. If you can dismantle this module, I suggest do so and any electrical/electronic individual will identify the part needed. you could also check on a replacement module-complete.
