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.

If a speaker goes "bad" it usually can not be fixed. Speaker systems use different speakers for different tones. This sounds like the speaker used for bass is not working. Check if there is a fuse in the speaker cabinet somewhere. Also, is there bass gone on both speakers?

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

I am unable to get the required base sound from my Acoustimass 16


Read the clues - Out of Phase means you have one or more of the speakers wired minus (-) to plus (+) instead of like pole to like pole. Having any speakers out of phase with their counterparts can **** the bass response out of the room. Check your wiring.

Load Clicking Noise on Deep Bass or Explosion sequences


Hi everyone having problem with B&W DM605 S2 speaker. The speakers are rated at 8ohm but during playback the impedance drops below 4ohm at low frequencies. It overloads weaker amplifiers and sometimes causes DC voltages to be injected into the speakers. Since the speakers in question are with active sub it appear that some elements on the PCB could be damaged. I would opt for LM431 (Adjustable Precision Zener Shunt Regulator) and associated elements. It could also be the rotary switch (the one used to adjust base levels - 2pole/6way) as contacts weakens over time. Possible solution: 1. switch your amp. to 4ohms 2. with the sub turned off change the position of the switch few times from max left to max right before setting it up in the desired spot.
If the problem persists: 1. replace the switch
2. replace suggested elements checking also KBL401 (Rectifier). TDA7294 (Amplifiers) are usually O.K.
