What main fuses? Fuses in the car electrical system? If so, your amp is too powerful to run through the cars electrical system, you should get a heavy guage wore ran straight from the battery, with its own dedicated fuse placed in-line, ad close to the battery as possible. Wait, is this a bass guitar combo??? Open it up, if there's wax coming from the power supply, thats prolly the culprit. Check for any obviously blown resistors or any short circuits. But most likely, its not gonna be user-servicable.

How to chaing the fues


On the larger models, there is a small door directly beneath the power plug. On this model, the manual does not show a door but, the fuse may be there under the plastic. I'm really not sure. Removing the 2 screws on each side may allow the plug to be pulled out, unless there is a door.

The light on my Ashdown mag 300 combo input level does not light up. How easy is it to fix. Electronic places charge 85.00 just for a quote and 85.00 and hour plus parts to fix it. HELP!.


If you mean the light in the meter, those can be hard to replace and mosts shops would replace the meter itself which would up the cost. It is probably a 12 or 14 volt bulb(s). Look at the back of the meter and see if there is a removable socket to get at the bulb... if not, then the bulb(s) is internal and probably a soldered in grain of wheat bulb(s). If you have never worked on meters before it takes GREAT care to keep contamination out when working on them. I would certainly not pay $85 to have bulbs replaced... use an external lamp if you really need to seee the meter... one of the little LED ones would work.

I need Schematica from the Ashdown little giant. I expect that the fan is not properly connected.


Don't have the schematics for this one... have for a 500 watt one... HOWEVER from that one the schematic shows that the fan is "throttled" by a negative temp resistor which should run the fan when the temp goes up where the sensor is located. The fan MAY not run at all until the temp reaches a certain point.

There are some burnt carbon resistors beyond recognition on a peavey tnt bass combo.so I need the schematic diagram


Try these schematics:

http://elektrotanya.com/peavey_tnt115s_sch.pdf/download.html

http://elektrotanya.com/peavey_tnt_100_1974.pdf/download.html

Scroll down to "Get Manual" at the web page and click on it to download.

Please note that on the first schematic above, the power amp schematic is way down beyond the parts list and layout of the preamp section... keep scrolling. ALSO the powoer amp shows a real WIERD connection where the output transistors drive against ground and the center tap of the power supply transformer for the power amp portion then bounces around with the audio output... that is a wierd connection but it is possible.

Hi ther the fuse has blown on the speaker out circet on my new amp any ideas why this would happen?


The fuse blew because of excess current. The cause of the excess current is either excess volume, a short in the speaker, OR the amp has failed and is shorted to one of the power rails internally and is driving DC current out.

Replace the fuse and use a meter to check the output voltage with NO speaker connected. It should be under 1/2 volt period. If it is, then check the resistance of the speaker. The DC resistance should be a little less than the rated impedance. Otherwise if the amp is kicking out a higher voltage or blows the fuse again, have the amp repaired.

Perfect ten bass amp, guitar


can you use headphones? if so do they sound normal. probably have bad filter caps. 2200uf caps big ones, go bad and lose their capacitance and cant process the low end notes, sounds like a motorboat or ******* out. speaker may have issues as well. get the caps from mouser.com and careful of stored voltage on the capacitors it is deadly....... those caps are less than 2 bucks each.

Blowing of fuses


The reason your blowing fuses is the amp needs at the least a 150 amp fuse on the wire that runs to your bat. There are fuse blocks that you can put 4 40amp fuse and theres the high dollor ones that you can put all the way to 200amp. When you trun up your amp its drawing to much current for the little 40 amp fuse that you have and will blow it everytime. I recomend Running a 4 gage wire to bat and ground with same. Get you a 150 or above amp fuse from a car audio shop somewhere. anyway sounds like from what you decribed, theres nothing wrong with your amp just the wires and fuse are not big enouf to handle the current that your amp pulls.

My amp turns on then off while it slowly blows the fuse out


If I were a guessing man, I'd guess that you had your amp hooked up in a bridged configuration. And also that you connected your two speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus). And if I were to further guess, I'd guess that you have a blown amp now because of what I mentioned above. Sounds like you need to spend some quality time with your favorite electronic repair shop. Good luck.
