Something getting hot probably means something shorted out. You probably know that since you replaced the fuses already... . Can you give me some idea of what you do and do not know about electronics? Then I will say fewer dumb things. . When troubleshooting any electronic device, especially amps, open it up and look at the circuit board. Look for burned board and components. Then test to see if the burned/blown component had reason to blow (it probably did). . Often a shorted transistor runs too much current through some other component and the other component blows up. . Another cause, less common, is a shorted cap. . Look at the schematics if you have them, if not, you may have to create one to make sense of it. . Or take it to a shop where somebody does this all the time. The only one here went belly up in the last 12 months... . . About the pots . Try blowing out the pots which are popping with some tuner cleaner. Use with caution, and always with everything turned off and power cords unplugged. . Pots do not usually make popping noises unless they are very old or live in a very dusty place... . I found the manual, but no schematics... http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:9Doi39-AcW0J:www.miragespeakers.com/images/download/374.aspx+Mirage+BPSS-210+schematic&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjBKgLSTb8wp5SRWIOWd-gE0INdBXbfz5QDNJ_3esye4_R2Q9aKba8cEePSWQWOebeXB9zXnJSelIel2bLSR5q6KExe8MVjOk1zqFKk4K-ruti_797yf1Ig3CIcUNjE49jx8DAr&sig=AHIEtbS6udedt_o6GqL7ALPunU0v3vMvuw . You might be able to get better, more exacting help on the Mirage Forum... http://community.miragespeakers.com/forums/ But maybe not, since the Subwoofer section gets less than one post per month, and the much busier Technical Questions section only has 23 in the last 12 months.

SOURCE: I have a Mirage Prestige
I have the same sub. For the past 6 months it seems to only activate when it wants to (even though indicator is always blue and on). Today I opened it up (remove speaker from the bottom and found that there is a small 250v glass fuse that had was barely attached (metal contact in the middle was all but burned out). Bought a replacement fuse from Lowe's and sub is back in business. Going to keep a few of these on hand from now on. I don't really turn the sub up that much so was kind of suprised, but it is what it is.
