  1. DCM sub-712 blown - Repair or replace?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I picked up a used dcm sub 712 off of criaglist (I know, I know...I deserve that one) that sounds good at lower, but turning it up a bit, it sounds like there's a rattle going on when the bass gets good. Should I find a replacement driver or replace the whole unit? I don't have much to spend...
  2. Did I / Do I have a blown sub?

    System Setup and Connection
    Recently started hearing some flapping / farting sound from my sub at low frequencies. Its an old Paradigm PDR-8, so I'm not expecting to rattle the room or anything (I have another sub for the low stuff), but the grille doesn't come off, so I can't inspect the surround or woofer very easily...
  3. Dark Picture, Blown Speaker

    Hey Guys, I have a SD-643HD5 it has convergence issues which I can fix. But it also has a really dark picture and the left speaker doesn't work (blown maybe?) I've played around with all the settings of the pictures but it's still incredibly dark, could this be a tube that's going out? If so...
  4. New member, blown AV123 RS850

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, found this forum looking for help with one of my RS850 signatures which is apparently blown. As AV123 went out of business, it's probably pretty difficult to get parts for it and seeing as it's the whole speaker, it's likely the electronics. I also noticed that Skiing Ninja is currently...

  6. Blown Optical Block on Panny ae2000u, any quick/cheap fix?

    Home Theater Projectors
    or is that the death knell of the projector? Pro audio/video fix it place says $2500 to repair/replace but I don't know if that is simply because they want me to buy a projector from them or if it truly is dead. Thoughts?
  7. Blown klipsch SB-1 tweeter

    Home Audio Speakers
    I'm using them as my mains and when i do a REW measurement (20-300hz) right toward the end the L makes a weird, high, vibrating, buzz (like a misquito) and i'm sure it's the tweeter. speaker exchange has one for $25 but i'd like to explore my options.

  14. Fuse Blown in Subwoofer

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hi Guys and Gals, I have an older subwoofer and it looks like the fuse is blown. It is a 0.63A/250V or as it says on the Sub 650mA/250v. I went to The Source (radio shack) and the guy told me to just by a .5A/250 as they did not have the .63 or 650mA type. As soon as I plugged the sub in the...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    About a month ago one of my two SDX15s blew. We had the system charged pretty well during a party when I smelled the "too hot" driver smell - like Bandaids, then turned it down. A couple of days later I noticed that one of the drivers was blown, yet it was the other one that had that smell. I...
