u could fix the surrounds on the stock minimus77 (well yours are optimus pro 77's but they are the same thing) woofers with a $5~ kit

I bought a pair of these at local thrift $10 then figured out the surrounds were shot...

ordered this..

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMALL-5-surrounds-SPKR-repair-bestQ-inverted-roll-minimus-77-prev-4-1-2-4-3-4-/251277085751?pt=US_Speaker_Parts_Components&hash=item3a81480c37

and just cleaned off the old surrounds and glued these on.. good to go..

I guess sort of moot now that you've stuck the polk tweeters and woofers in...



I gave the minimus 77's i fixed to my wife to use with the Pioneer SX-450 I gave have... sounds pretty good .. my wife likes the SX-450 and the 77s

Got mine from mouser. Only problem with mouser is you have to pay $5ish for shipping even if you only buy a few caps (at least for where I live). If you have an electronics store near you, you might check there, just don't spend more than a couple dollars per cap.

Also, it's not too difficult to replace them. It's a common problem so you can even find threads where ppl have taken step by step pics. I'm sure the bx8 is similar inside to bx5.

I hear that it is a common problem. I have found a few sites showing a guide, but not where to buy. Now I know where to buy I just need to fix now. I live in Cali too so it would probably be $5ish shipping to me.

You mean blown capacitors? People working with computers came to call it "capacitor plague". Someone stole an incomplete design and flooded the market with cheap capacitors somewhere around 1999. The last major surge of blown capacitors was in 2010.

Wonder if anyone here has any experience with the Samson Rubicon R10S?

A discontinued model already but would only be 211€ delivered from Thomann.

Well I think I have found my problem on why my woofer of my M-Audio BXa8 Deluxe keep crackling.

 

 

 

There is a small hole on the R59. The black stuff is just the glue they use to keep the power cord in place.

 

Has anyone replaced one of these?

Thanks for the link! I am not that good at soldering, but I know someone who is and they are willing to lend me a hand if necessary.

It looks like it is four colors.... Red black red and either a gold or brown band... Can't really see it that well due to the burn.

So it looks like 2000 Ohms with 5% value tolerance? New to all of this

Resistors are color coded. I posted to give you an idea of what to look for. The one on the other side looks to be the same. Find another chart. Good luck! thumb.gif
