    I understand there is an somewhat easy fix by removing a piece from the board in the speaker case. just not sure what that piece is.

Hi, well fuse get burnt when there is heavy current flow than the fuse rating so there is heavy current flow and this current flow might be because off short circuit in the PCB and this short circuit might be because of any transistor breakdown so you have to check through the PCB.(Printed Circuit Board)
Or the amplifier "IC" may also be shorted and needs to be replaced.
Take care

Hello,i guess you are having some contact with the wires,that could prompt it or probably you don't use the socket you are plugging it to again.the socket could be bad,so try another socket to see if the problem persist.
wish you good luck,

take care.

    The outlet (socket) that I have the speaker plugged into is not the problem. I have tried multiple outlets. There are also no wires touching either in the electrical system or internally in the speaker box. I understand there is a fairly easy fix by removing something from the board, I am just unsure what needs to be removed.

Klh subwoofer keeps blowing it's fuse.


Most likely the amp in the sub has blown. It will need repair or replacement. I'd take it to an expert in repairing amps, it's not a job for you unless you're experienced in troubleshooting these things.

KLH ASW8 Powered subwoofer keeps blowing 3A-250V fuses


The transistors at the output stage of the sub amplifier circuit might be shorted so each time you power on, the circuit draws a very high amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. It's definitely a problem with the circuit so using a higher current rated fuse would probably just result in damaging the amp even more. You should ask a qualified electronics technician to take a look at it. I hope you can fix it.

I sent an earlier question regarding a 10 inch KLH sub in that it keeps blowing a fuse. I turn it on, it humms and then the fuse blows. Is there anything I can do to diagnose this problem and fix it?


Fuses only blow like that when a semiconductor device is acting like a piece of wire causing an overload. An ohmmeter on the ohms setting will show any transistor with this condition as a short, just like you had touched the test leads together! Follow where the fuse leads to. And look out for signs of damage too. The most obvious parts to go are the ones that do the work, in the power supply or the main amp device, often an IC.

KLH subwoofer Model BASSBite V. Has a bad 60Hz buzz


Before you go throwing money at this problem, try to eliminate any external influences like track lighting. I myself am trying to figure out why mine makes a buzz throughout my system when the lights are on. I already replaced the variable light control with no improvement.

Bad cable ground can let airborne electronic noise into the Sub's amp.

If it stays on for 3 seconds then it probally is not the transformer. However it may very well be the power amp no way to tell untill we operate. Call Pro Line Music 215-736-8055
