Klipsch Sub R12SW malfunctioning
« on: August 12, 2019, 23:36 »
Hi everyone, sorry im new to the forum, had my home theathre set up a couple of years ago in 2014. My Sub suddenly stopped working this year, its a Klipsch R12SW, not an expensive one, around 200 U$ when i got it

The power function lights up but it doesnt produce sounds, would it be worth repairing or just junk it and buy a new one? I opened the back up, nothing looks really burn or fused, but I dont know what im looking at. (even though I do teach physics for a living!)

Thanks for any comments!

A hometheatre newb.

Thanks! I already did ask on carousell and was quoted 160-250 to repair it, probably can get a new one for a bit more.

Usually, it makes more sense to get a new one. Why not use this opportunity to get a better sub?
