Dear All

A strange thing happened to one of my 105.1 recently, the fuse on the HF (500ma) was blown and I replaced it with a time delayed type (as the one originally used), and then after a party session, I noticed the fuse was blown again, I replaced the fuse again and this time nothing happened ie still no high frequency output.

I then decide to swap over the tweeter with the other speaker just to see if the tweeter is faulty or now and this time both tweeters worked.

Someone suggested that this might be an intermittent fault or with a bit of luck it might stay ok indefinately.

Any ideals what might caused this? Should I need to worry about this?

As suggested by Colin earlier, I have now replaced all the HF fuses with the quick acting type (500ma).

Regards

StephenW

Either a dud fuse or our old friend muck.

So head for the metal polish, unless it was consumed at your last party Rolling Eyes .

The purchase of snake oil products suitable for organisms living in an atmosphere of carbon and hydrogen sulphide should be left to those having intellects comparable to nematode worms and too much cash.

Don't worry until the speaker becomes silent once again.

This would indicate your parties have loosened something, which requires the attention of a soldering iron.
