Question about Pioneer VSX-305 Receiver
You can get fuses from any electronic parts shop, such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). I would get a few, because chances are the fuse did not just blow because of a bad speaker wire! Fuses are there to protect the device from an overload (which would cause a fire). The mostly likely cause of your fuse blowing is that your wire shorted out an output transistor on the channel the speaker was connected to and the transistor is acting like a piece of wire now!
If you have an Ohm meter I would put it's probes on the terminals of the transistors on the heat sink. You will soon know, as it will be just like you have touched the meter's probes together!
