Need a schematic for a 1980's Protron "The Radio" Model 300. Ditto its "powered speaker"

    No. This unit was sold in the late 1970's and early 80's. It is about the size of a breadbox. Black. Ditto the matched "powered speaker" The plate on the back says: Model 300, serial # p3010344. I can send you a jpeg file if you want to see the beastie...

    It was called "The Radio"; reviews were fab. $$$$, but it did what it claimed to do: "...a true high fidelity audio system providing sonic accuracy and musical satisfaction never before available..."

    My local antique repair guy (who does all the spec/install for the local/state cops here in MD) is afraid to open it without specs. He has been unable to track down a schematic. I could call Protron...but, has anyone ever called Protron and gotten lucky?

Hi. I have a pair of Harmon Kardon Computer speakers without a power adapter. The left speaker plugs into the right and the right has a place for an adapter. The only numbers on these speakers are...


According to this similar request http://www.fixya.com/support/t1489202-need_replacement_power_cord_harmon you're looking for a 12v 2500ma power supply. Take the speaker with you to someplace like Radio Shack and I'm sure they can set you up.

Or look on eBay. This one looks like it would fit just about anything in the U.S.

TV's are known for their audio chops. Neither are PC speakers. You'll need to access the audio through a variable output on the TV if you want control of the volume. SEE THE TV MANUAL. Or get the audio from the Cable Box directly (or any video source)

I have a RZC 298W RCA FM/AM tuner/stereo amplifier that I cant find anywhere. It works ok, except its fuzzy. I'm Just curious about schematics and what year it is. it looks like its at least 40 years old....


You could contact a tv repair shop, many shops have schematics that go back many years. You say the sound is fuzzy, is this fuzzy sound when your playing the radio or when you play something throgh the amplifer? If its fuzzy with any source the you might have a bad speaker or speakers. you need to be more discriptive of the fuzzy sound you describe. also. if this unit has a head phone jack, (which I doubt if its 40 years old). you could plug in some head phone and see if the sound is clear there, if so then you know its most likely the speakers.

I need the schematic diagram for an antique radio RCA VICTOR model A25 made in Montreal circa 1941


I wasn't able to find information for the A25 specifically, however, there are a LOT of antique RCA Victor (US and Canadian) schematics here:

Do you have any more details about the radio? An alternate model number perhaps?

Please rate this answer if helpful.

My bose car stereo system no longer has sound. When the radio was first turned on, it would take approximately 5 minutes until there was sound coming from the speakers. This got progressively worse until...


The problem is in the power amplifier section. If you a preamp out connector you can troubleshoot using another power amp between that and the speakers but you may need a schematic to isolate to the components at fault. Bose is worth fixing and if you can remove it yourself you will save money by getting it to a bench technician, even a TV repair shop can fix it. Steve Medley

I have a Westinghouse tube radio, AM/FM table model, uses a selenium rectifier. I need a schematic for this radio, do not have a model number, but chassis number is 240635. Would appreciate your help.


Hi driggins

Wondering if that may be the serial number that you have quoted. Most Westinghouse radios that I have been able to find are allocated model numbers as WRXXX
If it has a solid state rectifier then it will be post war vintage at least.

Are there any other identifying marks on the radio?

Denon DRA-25/25L Stereo Receiver. On power up the display lights but no sound is produced by the unit. When working normally a click (relay?) is heard about 5secs after power up and normal speaker output...


Without looking at the schematics for this particular model, I'd surmise that the click is indeed a speaker protection relay. Generally this is fed by a number of different sense circuits that watch for power amp issues and/or excess speaker current and/or power supply output stability. Although the relays do indeed fail at times, generally it is not the relay that is at fault. If you have a scope and a schematic, you can check the various circuits that feed the relay for the exact cause. If not, you can do some experiments that might help deduce the problem: e.g. do headphones work when speakers do not, does the relay click on when no speakers are connected (or selected), etc. In my experience, it is most often the output transistor(s) in the power amp. But not always ;-)
