Have you taken the unit apart and checked the filter caps? they are 2 big black 25v 6800 uf capacitors and they commonly go bad on these studio monitors. look and see if the tops of the caps are bulging up, if so, replacing them would fix your problem (considering your not just cranking it too loud either! )


replace with anything bigger than 25v ! common replacements are 6800 uf 35v and 6800 uf 50v . obviously have a professional preform this repair if your not comfortable with a soldering iron.

I assume you mean the Pr-12RX passive? That seems wrong to me, too. Put an ohm meter across the terminals of the horn driver and the woofer seperatly to see which, if either, is blown. If they're OK, look for a bad solder joint on the crossover.

One of my speakers has started emitting a " fartinf like sound, it's not blown but sounds like someting vibrating against the woofer, if that makes sense?


Check to make sure all screws are tight. If they are, it's possible the surround or the spider on a woofer is letting go. Check to see that they are intact.

The sub seems to go on and off during diffferent movie scenes or tv shows. Is this typical? How do I fix it


Well first yes this is normal for the subwoofer to not always be pounding bass. There are times when there is no bass or it is all treble. If you are watching tv and say a action scene is happening and it goes in and out then Its most likely a either the amp that is powering the woofer is blow or the woofer is blown. Also it could be loost connections inside the woofer. But that doesnt sound to be the case as youd have to wiggle/jiggle the cables to get them to go back in play. Thanks, MIDwest-tek

Static noise in Yamaha HS50 monitor


Sounds like the voice coil is damaged on the woofer. If you GENTLY press in on the woofer cone, and release, you should not hear any scratching noise. If you hear noise, the woofer needs replacement.

My QC2 right headphone starts to buzz, like a vibrating sound


It is a blown woofer in the headphones that is causing the vibrating. Because when a woofer is blown is will develop a small tear, this tear will get bigger over time and cause that "vibrating" sound that you hear. Lucky for you joenfrancis your headphones are still under warranty so they will replace the headphones for free. Hope this helped!

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.
