What causes blown fuses in speakers?

Speaker blow-out most typically happens when the speaker experiences too much signal for too long. The direction and amplitude of the electrical current are translated into speaker movement that produces sound. A byproduct of this electrical current is the dissipation of heat from the voice coil.

Do subwoofers have fuses?

Fuses for subwoofers can be located in-line with the subwoofer wires, within the speaker enclosure, and if there is an amp dedicated to the subwoofer, the fuse could be located there. In-line fuses can have different looks. You would either unscrew it or pull it apart to access the fuse.

How many Watts Does a RW 10 subwoofer have?

The RW-10 gets its intensity from a newly designed amplifier that delivers 260-watts continuously (FTC rated), but more importantly, 575-watts of dynamic power – the punch that makes the subwoofer come to life. A continuously variable phase control facilitates ideal acoustical integration of the subwoofer with the other speakers in the system.
