Hello docjgg,

This sounds like it may be a loose connection (ground) generation common mode noise or it may be a capacitor in the power supply going bad and not providing enough filtering of the AC voltage (allowing for 60 cycle hum). You should get a schematic for the speaker or just take some rule of thumb measurements of the power supply output, with an oscilloscope (you will be looking for ripple voltage, what you could do is use one of your good speakers as a comparison of good to bad.

If you do not want to work on this yourself, you could take the speaker to any TV repair shop or audio repair shop.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Shuttle83

SOURCE: M-Audio BX5 - No Power

Don't bin! This should be a simple fault to rectify.

Fault finding technique as follows:
Trace mains voltage up to main transformer - there could be a standby transformer with relay in parallel. Check mains voltage all the way until it stops. If you have voltage up to main transformer, check that you have low voltage at the other end - if not main transformer at fault. If you don't have, then check to see if you do have a standby transformer - much smaller and usually on small circuit board near where power comes in to speakers. They are notorious for blowing on many audio systems as they are constantly connected to mains unlike most of the other components - power spikes kill them in particular.

Hello,

This is power problem, the cable might be ok but power might not be getting to the panel to power on the monitor, i will advice you give the monitor to a local repairer to help diagnose the panel on your monitor, the power diode on the panel might be bad or burnt, and will need replacement.

This is the best option since you are not electronically inclined.

Take care.

Hi, cases like that always comes u. Earlier you said just replaced it, that's not too good for anew monitor speaker.

You could test the fuse inside the speaker if it's still working, might be power fluctuation that might have caused it to blow.but you need to test it. If it is the fuse,fine! you can replace it, it does not cost much to replace.

Also if i can recall,most new stuffs always comes with guarantee with it,right?. I would suggest you could take it back and get a replacement, and i guess if they see it,since it is on guarantee,they can fix it for you without even charging you a penny.

Hope that helped.

Thanks and feel free to pass on your comment.

The fault is not with the speakers... It is with the noisy audio system common in computers. Get a decent USB audio interface and use balanced interconnect cables to solve the problem.

Little goes wrong with a speaker unless it has either been overloaded or subject to damp, extreme dust or has sustained physical damage from some sort of accident.

A rough test is to move the speaker cone gently through most of it's travel using an even pressure simultaneously on various places around the cone, I use my fingers.
It should move smoothly without any resistance and most importantly it should be completely silent through the largest or smallest movements.

If it sounds scratchy, the speech coil is either off-centre or it has suffered damp or dust and dirt has ingressed into the air gap or the chassis has become distorted.
If it is silent and electrically sound it should produce normal volume.

There was a time when loudspeaker repair, overhaul or adjustment was routine but these days it isn't economic except for the highest quality and replacement is best.

After gaining access to the interior wiring of the speaker cabinet I suggest further testing it by wiring it direct and leaving out the crossover if it has one.

When i play my bass through my amp it is really loud but when i go round my tutors for lessosns he has to turn his amp way up to get any sound at all.


His amp probably has lower gain. They vary quite a bit. Also the size of the speaker will affect it a bunch. If his is a tiny practice amp your bass will not generate much noise.

Check the capacitor, if its swollen or rusty it needs replacing, also check the fuse.

well it depends on how you feel about opening your system. have you tried a cleaning cd? if not, then do that. If not, and u want to open it, then get some electronic cleaner spray (not sure how its called) and blow the laser clean. There are some resistors you can adjust, but thats getting very trick.

good luck

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


UNPLUG THE GREEN WIRE FROM THE COMPUTER AND PLUG IT INTO A CD PLAYER IF IT WORKS BETTER ON A CD PLAYER THAN THE COMPUTER IT SELF THERE MAYBE A PROBLEM WITH THE SOUND CARD AND ALSO TRY THESE STEPS I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU I AM SURE ONE OF THEM WILL WORK.

1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.
