Do you have the input voltage switch set to 120V 60hz. There is a switch that should change from 120v/60hz to 220v/50hz. In the US this should be on 120v/ 60hz

Check to see who the manufacturer is. The Acoustic Research name was sold a couple of times. I think yours may be Recoton. If so, you may be able to get some help from them.

Can i use a 250v 4a fuse for my cerwin vaga speaker even if its not a slow blow and what could happen if i did would it damage the speakers

If you're replacing the fuse with the same specs and the only difference is the new one is not a "slow blow", you won't damage the speakers, but the fuse could blow again even if there is no actual fault. The slow blow is designed to accept a temporary surge of power without blowing - as in initial power up.

Hi, I have a YST-SW800 that just went dead on me. I don't have the knowledge to fix the amplifierunit. Is there anywhere I could buy a new amplifierunit to the subwoofer. O.E.

Possibly, try a search engine.

But even if you find one you're stuck with the same dedicated amp.

I once had a powered sub that blew its internal amp and the store gave me a whole new sub. THAT one blew the same way so I disconnected the internal amp and now use it as a passive sub with a separate amplifier that I own. Separable amp/speakers allow for the surviving component to be redeployed.

Not working turns on, no sound, the stand by/on light goes on and I hear the unit amp click on but no sound. I tested the internal fuse for continuity and it was good, however I dont know how to check if...

first of all remove the speaker and check it, is it faulty or not. connect a battery between the two leads of the speaker .if it is ok then it will produce some cracking sound. check it first.

I have a problem with my yamaha subwoofer yst sw 215 after about 5 minutes of use it gets this continuous bass vibration through the the sound outlet like its stuck on a bass sound any ideas

could be a problem with one of the filters inside or a short circuit... your best bet would be to have someone skilled in electronics look at it, and stop using it as you may permanently damage your speaker.

Unit blew the internal fuse. SONY SA-WMS367 SUB-WOOFER

Bad output IC or voltage rectifier are the most likely at fault.
