fuses

Post by 2-tall » Wed Sep 01, 2010 10:38 pm

I have not been able to play with the system in months.Started it up today and shorted out the right channel.Kids messed up some wiring.What fuses are used in my AL111's.Also I had picked these up from some one about 11/2 years ago.When I looked at the left speaker I found that there was no fuse or screw in cap in the bottom fuse holder.The speaker sounds alright.What do I need to make this right.Please help.

Fuses for the AL-IIIs are MDQ-4, dual element time delay like THESE

Thanks. Any Idea where I can get a fuse holder for the left speaker and an idea why it seems to work with out a fuse in the socket?

so. take a photo of what you have, and i will send you some fuse holders for a very small fee. original al-III fuse holders. there are two types that have been used. i happen to have both types in some extra crossover plates from a swap.

Someone has bypassed your fuses. You need to open up the back & take close-up pics of what the area around the fuse holders looks like.

All the AL-III fuse holders I have seen so far are this style, but double check your plate hole ID.
