The 2 black and purple sub hookups on back stopped working after i played a bass tester but the black and red ones work

You probably blew it up.

They call things like that 'torture tests'. A disclaimer or that little angel who should have been perched on your shoulder would have warned you of the dangers inherent in running something like that on a modest mini system. The one I found went down to 10Hz. Ho hum (pun intended) unless you have something called a '100 watt yada yada'. Live and learn.

The sub-woofer amplifier is probably blown. This is a separate circuit from the other channels. It will need to be repaired. It is likely a bad transistor or open resistor that over heated.

Can't get wharfedale melton 2 tweeter to work. Looked inside cabinet and need advice on internal wiring please. These are very old but one works perfectly and the 12'' bass driver on the problem speaker is...

The tweeter has burned out and cannot be salvaged. I also own a pair of (ex) Melton 2s. In the beginning Wharfedale were good at supplying spares (see for contact info and advice). A few years ago after my cat destroyed the 12 inch unit in one, i invested in new insides, including state of the art 12 inch woofers, 4 inch mid range and 1inch tweeters with a good 3 way crossover. The cabinet is great so consider asking a techie friend to do this for you. Please don't just cut out and connect to amp speaker wires! You will get terrible sound and risk ruining both amp and speakers! Best regards Karl (

My left speaker to my Sony HCD-GX450 stereo is

Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.

I have a rca rs2640 stereo system. The display, cd player, tape player, radio, and headphone jack all work. But when a cd, tape, or radio is playing, the speakers do not make any sounds. I know it is...

It sounds like maybe you have speaker wires touching somewhere. If they are touching it will blow fuses, especially if you turn the volume up to try to hear anything. DO NOT put bigger fuses in to replace the old ones, you will actually do more damage to your system because a higher volt fuse will allow a higher voltage to "spike" in your stereo and might just start frying internal parts.

House already wired up for wall speakers (2 wires) BUT

The 4 wires are 2 for the treble/midrange 2 for the bass.
You can tie the wires in parallel ( one wire from one pair to another in the other pair and repeat) but you need to know how many "ohms" the stereo can handle.
Should say on the back of the rack system

TEAC - CD-X9 - No sound in left speaker

the speaker wire itself could be grounding out. look for small knicks in the wire and make sure the plug is not faulty. RCA plugs can go bad which would account for intermitent troubles some times

Full sound not working

I had the same problem and also traced it back to two of the four 7-amp fuses were blown. I replaced the fuses, but they immediately blew again. I used higher capacity fuses (10 amp) to see how bad the problem was and those blew. Testing the problem a third time with the speakers disconnected yielded the same results.
There's an internal short in the system.
The solution? Don't buy RCA again.

It certainly sounds like a defect and I believe would qualify as a warranty repair. Talk to the store where you purchased it to see what their warranty procedure is before it is out of warranty, which can be as little as 90 days. Good luck.
