    Default PSW125 Blown Fuse

    Hi there... First time poster on the Polk Forums...

    Noticed that my sub wasn't getting power anymore... Took out the fuse and noticed it was blown. Easy fix, I thought.

    Went looking for the fuse listed on the back of the sub (and on the blown fuse itself)... Called a "T1.6A L 250V". Went looking around for this fuse... And no body seems to have it. A guy at The Source by Circuit City (aka Radio Shack) gave me a 2amp fuse and said it would work fine... But it blew pretty much ASAP when i plugged the sub back in.

    I have noticed other Polk subs on the forum with blown fuses... But haven't seen anything in regards to my particular model. If I can actually find the right fuse - will my problem be solved? Or is there something else going on with my subwoofer?

    I've only had it for one year - so it should still be covered by the warranty... Any ideas? If it matters - I live in Canada.

    Thanks!
    Travis

    Not yet... I was kinda hoping I could find the right fuse in an electronics store... But it seems this fuse is a very uncommon thing.

    If it blew a 2 amp fuse I would wait till you have contacted Polk.

    If u blew a fuse it is usually a product defect. Fuses are there to prevent a fire and what not,.

    I agree with Ben and Timmy, if it is blowing fuses it is doing so for a reason. If you replace the fuse and it keeps popping new ones, there is something else wrong and looks like you will need to contact Polk to get it fixed. Eric is usually sniffing around here somewhere he can probably help you there, if not call up Polk and arrange to have it returned for service.

    Default Blown Fuse with PSW125

    Hi, I have noticed that a lot of people have had problems with a blown fuse. My fuse too was recently blown. When I tried to replace the fuse with similar rated fuse (1.6 AL 250VP), it immediately blows when I turn on the subwoofer. Based on the threads posted here particularly from Ken, it seems the subwoofer is having a issue with the amp.

    I bought this subwoofer a year ago from Circuit City. If I send in the amp, will Polk fix this for free. If not how much will it cost?

    Also, do I have to send it to this address (below), or could I take it to a local contractor.

    Thanks,

    CC was an authorized dealer, there is a 3 year warranty, so if you have your receipt, or registered the sub with Polk, I would say no worries.
    But I would not just send something to them. Contact them first as you probably need an RA number first. Also not sure if they have one service depot or more than one scattered around so they would tell you where and how to send what you need to send (probably just the amp).

    Good luck and welcome to CP
