Question about M-Audio DX4 Active Studio Monitors (Pair) Computer Speakers
Hi, I'm in the middle east and I just received some lovely new DX4 speakers shipped over from the U.S. I should have known better but in my excitement to get to work I plugged them in and turned them on and, fizzly static sound bursts forth briefly followed by wispy smoke from the main speaker.
So the power here is 240v and these were designed for 110v or whatever the power is in the U.S. and I've fried something.
I'm a muppet!!
They were quite pricey to ship out here so I don't want to ship them back and forward to the U.S. for servicing, and the warranty doesn't cover acts of muppetism.
Can someone tell me what component it is that I most likely fried?
Is this a component I could source and replace myself?
Hi Mr Goodrice
You may friied the capacitor of power regulator, or power suppy module. have to get to some place to make the change, or you have to RMS the speakers to US to replace. no other thing can be done. also you need a special conector and transformer to get the right voltage there.
