Question about KEF Audio KHT 2005.2 System

Open Question

Base Speaker not working as it should.

The base speaker is producing a loud banging sound.
This occurs no matter how you turn the knob.
It also occurs even if you remove all of the cables.

My feeling are that the In built amp is dead

SOURCE: Loud buzzing from Kef PSW1000 Subwoofer

yes. A good idea. Kill power to the sub, then unplug and remove everything from the sub. go ahead and plug it in again and check for buzzzz.
That is test one. if you have buzz still, its the sub assembly. bad luck, but not impossible. If the buzz is gone its one of the signals to the sub. They can produce a buzzz without any signal coming from your stereo equipment. Replace the feed line, enjoy! BTW...Kef sure does sound clean. good choice.

SOURCE: I have a Kef PSW 2500 that emits a loud buzz when

Have just repaired a similar problem with a KEF 2500 - relay was chattering at 50 Hz rate, buzz in speaker output.

Problem was caused by overheated / dried out Electrolytic filter cap (C52 - 47uF 63V) on the relay coil supply feed.
The overheating is caused by adjacent power supply dropping resistors which run very hot due poor design of power supply.

A service manual for a similar model is available at following link, refer to power supply section:-
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/35375/kef_psw2000.html

To replace,
1) remove chassis from speaker cabinet (8 screws), disconnect red/black speaker wires from main PCB spade connectors.
2) Remove 4 screws attaching main pcb heatsink assembly from face panel - lift assembly from faceplate (a bit messy , much heartsink compound between mounting faces)
3) unplug the AC 3 pin connections adjacent to the large capacitors and the 3pin connector on end of pcb (near C52), then roll assembly over the top of the audio sub-board to access underside of pcb.
4) solder connections to C52 is accessible at edge of board without further dis-assembly.
Take extreme care replacing C52, as the circuit board is of poor quality, (usual domestic electronics quality) being single sided copper without plated through holes.
The board is already heat damaged by heat buildup from power supply resistors, so the track will most likely lift and crack when disturbed- to counter this problem link the +ve capacitor pigtail to an adjacent solder pad on the same track.
Assembly is reverse of above, take care to preserve/ensure minimum disturbance of heatsink compound.

Need more volume on computer speakers


Buy yourself some stand alone speakers, a base & two side speakers, they cheap these days, base speaker has buit in amplifier & plugs into mains, or get surround sound 5speakers & a base, again mains powered, loud enough to annoy neighbours on full. Built in monitor speakers are renowned feeble tinny sounds. Right click speaker icon, bottom right, on your desktop toolbar, open volume control, ensure volume sliders set to max.

Rattling sound with any significant base output


You either ripped your voice coil, or you have something jumping around inside (Screw, nail, etc.). You can tell of a blown speaker by pressing straight in, and if you hear a rubbing noise, then your speaker has disconnected from your voice coil. Mickey mouse jobs include Krazy Glue, but It's touch and go

Kenwood VR-409 surround system clicks off when sound is turned up


Assuming you aren't turning the volume knob past half way before the problem occurs, you most likely have a damaged speaker cable or a bad driver in one of your loudspeakers. (Once your volume knob has reached about half way the amplifier is producing its maximum efficiency.)

Note the position of your volume control when the clipping occurs, then remove one speaker at a time and raise the volume. If you identify a speaker as the culprit, inspect or replace the wire running to it and try it again. If you aren't able to find a bad speaker, the problem is internal and will need to be fixed at a repair shop.

Good Luck,
BB
