Sounds to me you have a common problem of the mbox 2 blowing the maximizer. i had this happen on one and fixed it myself by purchasing new capacitors and replacing the ones on the pcb board.you can actually change a few capacitors to make it alot better. such as a mbox one with the better capacitors

long periods of recording time. Digidesign recommends that all Mbox users
replace their "Digidesign USB Driver" version 1.0 (located in the System Folder
/Extensions Folder) with this version 1.0.1 driver.

Who Should Use this Update?

All Mbox Users with either Pro Tools LE (Mac) v.5.2 that shipped with Mbox, or
the 5.2.1 web update for Mbox users from DigiProNet

HELP!!Setting up my Mbox1 as general sound output in my mac!!


I've had the same problem. I got it to work using Soundflower and LineIn.
Soundflower:
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/audio/soundflower.html

LineIn:
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18987

After installing soundflower, it should show up like a virtual soundcard in your sound prefs. Send your audio output to the soundflower 'card' in sound prefs. Then use LineIn to route the outpout from soundflower to the Mbox like this:

Input from: Soundflower (2ch)
Output to: Digidesign HW ( Mbox )

Mbox problem (no input,output)


i'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:
1. shut down computer
2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.

i hope this helps everyone else

Protools mbox2 issue


it doesnt sound like its the mbox more maybe the protools install. But as far as the cable goes can you tell me if you can ping the mbox throught the 1394 connection. If you cant ping it then damage may have been caused to the unit and it may need to be serviced. I fix my own M-box's but in my store it only costs around $50usd to fix almost all problems with a mbox2
