Question about Acoustic Research S108PS Subwoofer
Hello, thank you for your willingness to help.
Problem: subwoofer Acoustic Research s108ps has a burnt capacitor right by the speaker terminals (parallel connected) . It has a rubber (dielectric) base that looks like a small black disk about 3 mm tall and 6mm in diameter and a few loops of a thin grey foil. This foil is partly destroyed. I tried to unwind it and a portion of it fell off the capacitor. The sub started making sound (before that it was making low level distortion noise) but only at about 40% of its normal capacity.
Can you please, tell me where I could find the specs of this capacitor and buy it. An electrical diagram of this sub would be most helpful. I can take a picture of this part and email it to you, if need be.
thank you very much !
If you can get the burnt capacitor off the board, do so and simply take it to a local electronics store. They will be able to identify the specs and provide you a replacement.
Unfortunately, I am unable to locate the schematics for this sub.. Will post back if find it.
Hope that helps :) Please take a moment to "Accept" this solution, if you found it helpful..
