Well from my understanding these are bi-amped monitors. One amp drives highs and one amp drives the mids and lows. being that you do not have sound from either a common point betwenn the two amps has failed. if you have already verified your source input is correct not much can be done at this time. the monitor needs to be opened up and repaired. without having a schematic i can't even tell you where to begin. i will talk to M-Audio tomorrow to see if they can even share that kind of information. Sorry I couldn't fix your problem but your monitor is quite possibly down and out for a bit. I will let you know what i find out.

To determine if it is the signal going to the speaker or a problem within the speaker unit, swap speakers. If the problem stays with the speaker unit, then you have a defective speaker. If the problem moves to the other speaker, then you have a signal problem. If it is a signal problem, it could be the wiring from the signal source or the signal source itself.

Let me know what you find or please clarify if I didn't understand your problem correctly.

    The issue is inside the box then. If the unit is not under warranty and you want to try and affect a repair yourself, you'll need to remove the back of the cabinet. First, be sure that any overloads are not tripped (the power to the system will not be interrupted if the overload for the speaker is tripped).



    Once inside the unit, you will need to look for any overloads that might be tripped inside as well. There is not any user serviceable components inside, but you can check for obvious things like loose connections, especially the wiring from the amplifier to the speaker itself. There could be a fuse for the amplifier that is separate from the power supply which would allow the power light to operate, but the remainder of the system to not function.

Humming BX8


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,

Subwoffer how to connect it to my amp


You have the M-Audio BX8A speaker listed here. Is this what you have? If so, this is a powered speaker and therefor no need for an amplifier. If you want to use it as part of your 5.1 home theater system, it is not possible to power other speakers with this particular speaker, as it does not have the required output connections.

M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse


If your monitor is crackling and fizzing, that is not a fuse issue, unless the fuse you have installed is underrated. It sounds like you have a bad driver/woofer, and need to get it replaced. CLICK HERE FOR THE REPLACEMENT DRIVER for this model.
