Question about JBL PB12 Subwoofer
My subwoofer lights flicker on the front green/red/green. Also a clicking sound. It smelled like an electrical burn of some sort. no power surge. I took out the board and their is a black burn spot on the board. Can it be repaired? Thank you, Daryl
Send your amp to Edwards Electronics - Ebay - We repair the amp - test and ship it back - please note your amp must have a screw near the on/off switch and we are not talking about the 10 that hold amp into box - see auction picture for specs.

These subs have had many problems, all associated with the amplifier section. PB 12's with an "M" as part of the ser. no. were assembled in Mexico and these are the ones with the amp problems. JBL fixed mine and sent it back no charge, BUT it cost me nearly $100 to send it to them in the first place. I have another one that has had no problems at all. Try sending it back for repair. At best you'll get a rebuilt unit back, at worst a substantial discount from the company for a new sub.

I had the same problem...replaced the C42 capacitor with one that I got from RS...fixed everything and all is well again. I only have moderate soldering skills, too, so if I can do it, so can you
