    The red light is on but there is no sound, and the fuse seems to
    be ok. On the "auto or on" position makes no difference. It just will
    not work. I tried a different sub and that one works.?? Any suggestions

There is an underlying cause for the fuse to blow. if something shorts out you would rather a 40 cent peice goes then the unit causing a fire. disassembly is require... look for obvious burnt parts first.

Thanks for the reply. im pretty sure there is something really bad here. i know its not the smart thing to do, but i was desperate so i took one of the bad fuses and wrapped it in aliuminum foil! it made a loud humming noise. i think the amp has gone bad time to replace. subwoofer in questions is a MTX sw2 12" cant find any on the net that has replacement amp. if any ideas please reply thanks.

I suggest replaceing the fuse once again with one with higher resistance(a smaller one could be sensitive to high current power) or, probably a very good thing would be to try a different wall plug!

Try removing the wires to the subwoofer and then hook a "aa" battery to it and see if it makes a pop sound..this will tell you if speker is ok...if it is then I think the amplifier sectionj for the sub is what is blowing the fuses...you are probably right..it looks like it's a 1 A fuse...but if it's blowing right away..it may be circuitry related

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.

Fuse blows


Both 3 or 4 amp slow blow fuses are suitable replacements for the 3.125 amp subwoofer fuse.

It could be that the subwoofer is blowing the fuse because the one you installed was not slow blow.

But, more likely is the subwoofer has a short in the power supply which is causing the fuse to blow.

Phoenix Gold Xenon 1200 mono not pushing subs and making noise.


This sounds like a problem with the head unit output to the sub amp. Are you using a Pioneer head unit? If so, you may have a problem with some surface mounted fuses inside the radio on the main board. Certain Pioneer head units have a common problem with these fuses blowing. They are fuses for the ground on the RCA outputs.

Let me know if this is the case, and if it is I can give you the part number of these fuses and tell you where they are located, but you would need good soldering skills to replace them. Also let me know what model number your head unit is.

Thanks,

Dave

Subwoofer issues


Hi,

The fuse blows when the current that passes through it are beyond its rating. This could be brought about by excessive consumption of the load, in this case the amplifier powering the sub-woofer.

Repairs would involve component level and require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Often it is just the finals that needs to be replaced. Of course we cannot discount the possibility of other components or section such as the power supply.

The smoke indicates something heating up such as a resistor or diode or a capacitor.

Should you be uncomfortable opening the unit and doing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps you need to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Should the downtime and cost of repair be no longer economically reasonable, purchase of a new unit might save you further trouble.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
