I recently picked up a TS500 Tannoy Sub and now have troubles powering it up. Sub appears to be imported from the UK. Here's a link to its electrical requirements page in the manual: link On the back of the sub it says it's designed to take in 230v-3A 50Hz and uses a T3.15AL 250v mains fuse. I plugged in a regular mains cable from another sub I have and it did nothing. No pop etc. There's also another mains cable for UK, with a built in fuse of 5A. I tried this one with an adapter and also didn't get any result. I popped the fuse holding bracket from the mains supply inlet on the back of the sub and the T3.15AL 250v fuse was shattered. I pulled it out correctly and slowly, so I don't think I shattered it, though I can't rule this out completely. I am not very schooled in electronics, but the only things that come to mind are: - The 250v fuse blew/shattered if I first (can't recall which I tried first) connected and tried the power lead (no fuse on that one) from my other subwoofer. Since that sent 230v at 10 amps from the socket as opposed to the required 230v / 3 Amps. Edit: Having read up on this, it seems a voltage rated circuit will only pull as much current as it needs from the outlet, so the fuse blowing/breaking has nothing to do with me using a non fuse protected power lead. - The fuse was already blown and I just need to replace it and hope it works. - the fuse shattered when I was taking it out (it doesn't look burnt, just shattered), as I understand fuses don't typically shatter, they just burn out/coil snaps. This is the worst case scenario, since it's nothing to do with fuse, the problem is in the sub power supply. What I think I need to do: - Stick another 250v 3.15A fuse in there (Which of the ones Jaycar has should I pick ?). This one should be ok ? - Source a mains lead with 3v fuse built in. Or maybe I can try the uk mains lead with an adapter again, since that has 5v fuse on it. - Not try any non fuse (3v/5v) protected mains lead. Any advice would be appreciated. Here hoping I just blew a fuse and it's not a faulty sub.
