Corsair SP2500 died... now what?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
They were working fine saturday. Got to work today and found them off which was strange as I don't remember turning them off saturday. Turned them on, control pad powered up and and works fine but nothing from the speakers or sub. Not even a hiss or puff. Dead silence.

Opened them up and found nothing glaringly wrong with them. So...

Order another set of SP2500's or something else? I really like this set, the sub is the best thing I have heard in this price range. I of course dislike the 150hz hole that everyone knows about but it isn't a deal breaker for a set of office speakers.

I have seen Swan M50W mentioned a few places. Look good. But anywhere that ships them to Canada with a good return policy?

Budget $200-$400 though I really want to stay on the low end of that.

Not against buying separates. But I am limited on size. I wouldn't want anything much bigger than the corsair's. And if I go seperates how do people split the output off a dac to go to speakers amp and sub? Been looking at NHT SuperZero 2.1 and Audioengine P4B speakers.




That is a Audinst HUD-MX2 dac that will be driving whatever I get.

Loose cable? How long have you had them?

Just over two years. So out of warranty.

I checked all the connections and everything is good. Tried every input and tried different sources. Nothing.

Found avshop.ca that carries Audioengine. Can get the Audioengine P4 speakers and N22 Desktop amp for $500 shipped.

Im close to pulling the trigger.

If you want passive speakers, you could look at the MB Quart closeout sale. They were a high-end manufacturer until they were sold to a Chinese company and now they are selling all their old stock:

They also have a killer deal on the VS1SWM subwoofer, selling for only $499 right now, usually sells for $2,500. It's a sub that's been compared to the flagship SVS and Hsu subs.

Their VS05BE bookshelf speakers sold out almost immediately though, usually retails at $3,500 and they were blowing them out at $449/pair.
