Question about Onkyo SKW-200 Subwoofer
I have the Onkyo SKW-200 and the fuses are blowing also. Plug it in and the fuses blow instantly. My brother has the same sub and the same thing happened. Our subs only worked for about 1 month before they went out. Do you think it is the power supply?

The fuse blows when the current that passes through it are beyond its rating. This could be brought about by excessive consumption of the load, in this case the amplifier powering the sub-woofer.
Repairs would involve component level and require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Often it is just the finals that needs to be replaced. Of course we cannot discount the possibility of other components or section such as the power supply.
The smoke indicates something heating up such as a resistor or diode or a capacitor.
Should you be uncomfortable opening the unit and doing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps you need to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, purchase of a new unit might save you further trouble.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
