Question about KLH ASW10-120 Subwoofer

Have the KLH ASW10-120 Powered Subwoofer and it is blowing fuses

Have the KLH ASW10-120 Powered Subwoofer and it is blowing the fuse 2-3 seconds after power is applied. I hear a humming sound just prior to failure, so I suspect the transformer may be on the fritz as there are no signs on either board of a failed/burned discrete component. What do you think (the speaker is over 8 years old)? Thanks in advance. Also, can a new transformer be purchased that does not "break the bank"?

Regards, Leiv

If it stays on for 3 seconds then it probally is not the transformer. However it may very well be the power amp no way to tell untill we operate. Call Pro Line Music 215-736-8055

This model has a high failure rate with the power supply board. Typically, power resistors fail, which in turn burns out the big capacitors.

I have not heard of transformers failing though, so it shouldn't be too much to repair it.

Here are the schematics for the unit: Upper board and Lower board

Find a fuse retailer


If you can post a picture of the fuse it might help in tracking one down.
However I should point out that fuses rarely blow on their own. And one blown is a sign of a serious overload, probably in the main amp or power supply section.

Klh subwoofer keeps blowing it's fuse.


Most likely the amp in the sub has blown. It will need repair or replacement. I'd take it to an expert in repairing amps, it's not a job for you unless you're experienced in troubleshooting these things.

KLH ASW8 Powered subwoofer keeps blowing 3A-250V fuses


The transistors at the output stage of the sub amplifier circuit might be shorted so each time you power on, the circuit draws a very high amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. It's definitely a problem with the circuit so using a higher current rated fuse would probably just result in damaging the amp even more. You should ask a qualified electronics technician to take a look at it. I hope you can fix it.
