I have a Microsoft System 80 subwoofer unit with a bad (rattling) subwoofer. Since I have not been able (as of yet) to locate a dual voice coil replacement, I'm going to try to replace both the speaker and the passive radiator with two single voice coil subwoofer speakers. Anyone with bad speakers watch for my results in the coming months! This may be a good fix for all those blown units. Next time I won't listen to Deadmau5 too loud or heavy on the bass, either!

If it is a powered sub, the sub power supply may have failed. There might be an open fuse.

Altec Lansing ACS400 (Desk top stereo/Dolby Digital speaker & Sub, circa 1995) [right speaker] does not work; how can I fix it?


realistically, I would say they've had their time, and it would not be worth repairing. it could be more than just the speaker that blew, parts for desktop speaker systems are almost nonexistant unless you know you're way around jury-rigging electronics. Plus, there are quite a few new sets out there that would be superior to what the ACS400 puts out, for decent pricings.
I myself am a big advocate of the Logitech THX-certified product lines- they have excellent bass, crystal clear sound, and are great value for the money.

Where do the cables go for pic and sound


You can find the manual here if you need a copy.

This system was sold with speakers and connecting cables. One cable connects from the main unit to the subwoofer. The rest of the speakers supplied with the system plug into the subwoofer with their special connecting cables. If you don't have the subwoofer and satellite speakers along with the cables, you can't get sound out of this system. There is no built-in amplifier and no way to connect speakers otherwise.

The video connection to your monitor or TV is from the rear panel on the main unit. You can use an s-video cable, composite video (a single cable with RCA plugs) or component video (3 RCA cables), depending on the inputs supplied on the TV. Component video gives best performance if the TV supports it.

You're not supposed to have the TV sound and the Bose osund on at the same time. Due to differences in digital audio processing there will be delays that sound like echo, not feedback.

If you truly have feedback, define the audio connections and exact cabling to/from all components..

Try removing the wires to the subwoofer and then hook a "aa" battery to it and see if it makes a pop sound..this will tell you if speker is ok...if it is then I think the amplifier sectionj for the sub is what is blowing the fuses...you are probably right..it looks like it's a 1 A fuse...but if it's blowing right away..it may be circuitry related

My subwoofer keeps poping and then stops working


larryagross,
Sounds like you blew the speaker! The amp is sensing the voice coil is connecting to the speakers magnet or iron core and is going into a safe mode. It is possible to blow the coil even when the sub has a built in amp.

First make sure that you have the gains properly set ans not all set to their maximums. Second, disconnect signal to the sub then unplug the power for a few minutes. Third, plug the sub into a source of power on a different circuit using a surge protector.

Does the speaker make any popping at the time it powers up? If so you have a amp problem. If there is no sound produced, connect it back the the system using a different signal cable. Does the speaker now pop again when sound is produced. If so the speaker has failed. Contact a Velodyne repair facility.

Infinity subwoofer in surround sound system was working and just stopped. Fuse is good but subwoofer just stopped working like the preamp blew. This occurred during low volume usage.


Check your speaker settings on the main menu of the receiver first. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot some more

Hi,
I don't think you can do that if your system was not designed for the additional speakers and a subwoofer. Your system is not a Home Theater surround sound system.
You could add the additional speakers by splicing the speaker wires but I wouldn't recommend it and it would not work like a true surround sound system.
