MLB 201 Subwoofer
 
I'm the owner of the above subwoofer MLB 201 I'm getting lots of popping and sounds like bullets coming from my sub. I have reduced the gain to 0 and still have the same problem. Dispite this being a High end Subwoofer tech support from the company non-existent I have called a couple of the sales person for the company anf they have directed me to Germany were the sub was made. However I have been unable to contact any one in Germany. I have been trying for the last 60 days to no avail. I'm looking for a place in the USA who could repair my Sub Amp. any sugestions will be greatly appreciated.:mad:

Hi

This may be of some help to you.
If you are unable to get help, I maybe able to repair it for you.
It sounds like from what you have told me the amplifier has become unstable. I could replace the amplifier with one of my own units.

Thanks, for your assistance I have very little experience with electronics, how difficult or complicated it is to replace the Amp. is that the only thing that I would have to replace?.

I would not say that it is that easy.
You would need some knowledge of electronics and some soldering skills.
and it does take an experienced eye to know what to take out and what to replace.
Also you would need to do some measurements on the power supply to see what module would be best suited to your current power supply and some skill
in drilling and tapping the holes to mount the module onto the existing heat sink.

Good eve Saint:

I have read your information and I do not feel confortable doing this myself what are my alternatives, what you would suggest. Could I take the amp out and send it to you and you do all the testing and maching up and charge me for your work and the amp. once I get it back I should be able to put it back in. I beleive I would be able to solder a few wires. what is your take.? I will consider your suggestion(s). as you might know the speaker weight is close to 100 pounds so it would be very expensive to ship the speaker to you. Please give me your feed back and assestment of my situation. :confused:
I'm in Miami FL (Sunshine State)

The best option for you would be to remove the whole plate amplifier as one unit and send it to me and then I should be able to repair or replace the main power amplifier section and post it back to you in the USA.

It might be easier from now on to communicate via email.
My email is aussieamplifiers@bigpond.com.

Cheers

Anthony
