MX6050D Subwoofer Issues


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Fault is either from the main system or the sub-woofer itself.

You need to test both unit in order to detect which of the two is giving the fault, so that you can concentrate on the faulty unit.

Test the woofer with a AA battery or any other battery. Put your ears close to the woofer and observe if you will hear any sound. If the woofer makes sound, then it means the woofer is working, but if it doesn't make sound, then it means the woofer is defective. Or you can disconnect one of the working speakers and connect the woofer to that part. If there is no sound, then obviously, the woofer is defective.

If the woofer seem to be working, then the unit needs to be tested also.

Connect one of the working speakers to the sub-woofer's section of the main unit. If the speaker doesn't bring out sound, check the system's menu settings, check the volume and make sure the sub-woofer volume is raised to the highest level and not on mute. ( Note that most Theater systems has separate volumes for each speakers). If the volume is raised to the highest level and there is still not sound from the woofer part, then it means the woofer channel has burnt. It could be a fuse or a defective channel. At this point, I think you need help from a repairman.

I hope the above is clear.

Regards.

Hi, we moved the sub woofer from its original position and now it keeps blowing fuses. I would like to repair the sub woofer, as it works well and is quite new. I live on the south coast of NSW...


Where was it sitting before it was moved? Did it have it have more ventilation and keep cooler? This sub has a powerful amplifier in it. If it got moved to an area that restricts air circulation around the sub more it is possibly overheating and causing fuses to blow. Put a fan on it and make sure it is on a hard surface or up off the carpet at least to keep the bottom side cool as well. Also when one moves a speaker it's often to put it into a more convenient area to be able to turn it up louder with less disturbance to others. This will draw more power and create more heat within the amplifier than it's previous location. If this is so keep it as cool as you can and turn it down every so often to give the amp a rest. The key here is to keep it cool as you can. One thing you never want to do is put a higher rated fuse in than the unit is rated for. Always use factory recommend fuse rating.

Mission m-cube sub fuse keeps blowing


If you have replaced with the correct rating and the fuse blows off then you will need to check for higher current drain in the sub woofer or the network. After replacing the fuse load up the subwoofer slowly, reduce the bass and as you increase check at the point the fuse blows off. Now we need to analyse if the rating of the amplifier you are using is rated for the subwoofer. If your subwoofer has a higher rating you can increase the rating by about 25% and check again. Some amplifiers give a very higher voltage on full bass which could result in such a condition. Moderate this and check again. If the fuse stays Ok you can continue with this new rating.Otherwise the output of the amp at higher volume needs a confirmation. Hope this helps. Good day

Sub-Woofer blowing fuses.


You should open it up and look for a short. Usually, an exposed wire is touching metal. Wrap the wire with electrical tape and look for a ground wires that are loose. That will blow fuses too.

Keeps blowing fuse in woofer


Seems like the wires inside the woofers are crossed. Open the sub and make sure that there are no bare wires touching. If everything seems OK then the circuitry inside is blown.

You need to take apart tthe sub woofer and check the connection to bass speaker for continuity. It sounds like an internal broken connection to speaker on sub woofer unit.

Bose acousticmass 15 sub-woofer making a noise


The sub contains the amp for the other speakers. But it sounds like the amp has a seriously damaged section and will probably have to be serviced by Bose.

Fuse keeps blowing?


The fuse is a protective device. Fuses dont blow unless the amp ( in your case ) is drawing too much current. DO NOT put a bigger fuse in. Obviously, there is a problem with the amplifier inside the sub. If the sub is under warranty, send it in for repair to an authorized warranty depot. If not it's not under warranty, then take it to the authorized warranty depot anyway. Why ? because they will have the schematics ( electrical diagrams ) to troubleshoot the unit quickly and it may be a common problem. If it is a common problem, the factory may have released a modification and possibly it could be covered under warranty under a factory 'goodwill' program. Good luck. Rob

Sub woofer keeps blowing fuses


NO dont try a 3 amp fuse.It is made to BLOW if there is a problem. That sub is not worth fixing, JUNK it. There are a lot of problems with it. Such as heating up and melting the board witch could cause fires. Thats what happened to mine. Like I said JUNK it and buy a different one.
