M-Audio DX4 Studiophile Monitoring Speakers - Fried!!!

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?
Thanks.

Hi Mr Goodrice
Happy Holidays
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.
good luck

Right speaker quit working after 6 months


swop the speakers overs this will tell you weather it is the speaker or the amp. if the speaker then it has blown or the crossover unit has blown. the crossover unit splits the signal to the bass /middle and top frequencies. if you want an easy way out after you have checked the speakers/amp by swoping them just go and buy a new pair but make the sure they are the same impedance as the old pair as you can easily damage the amp

Sound through headphones only.


Try the speakers on another computer, to see if they work at all. If they do, then the problem is the audio-interface on your computer (or DVD-player, or home-stereo system).

Hello, i have m-audio dx4 studio speakers. the treble on one side has stopped working. they are over the warranty and would possibly charge more than i'm willing to pay, i wonder if it would be something...


only if you can get the replacement part from m-audio. if you replace the tweeter with a generic one, it will ruin the sound of the monitors, and m-audio, most likely, will not let off of 1 tweeter unless you send it to them for repair.

Speakers not working


are their speakers in the rear as well. does your car have a total of 6 speakers? if so, the new deck can only run 4 of them, thats why the middle speakers dont work.

M-Audio StudioPhile DX4 4'' Woofer


The "voice coil" inside the woofer must be rubbing against the "yolk" plate. Meaning = it is mechanically blown(damaged) to a point but electrically intact.
My sugesstion is to take out the damaged woofer and "google" for a mew woofer with the correct impendance and size and mounting holes. If you dont know thw impendance, then you should go with at least 8 ohms. More ohms = less risk of overloading the amp. whick can cause a fire!

Good Luck!!
