    Best thing you can do is call Definitive and see what they can do. Fuses pop for reasons, you've got something wrong with that subwoofer.

    There are a lot of places that work on speakers and amplifiers.
    I just sent my sons amp plate from his 12" Velodyne subwoofer to EBC Electronics in New Jersey this week. I had tried contacting Velodyne a couple of weeks ago. Got no response from my email. They had repaired this same item once back in 2010.
    Have you searched the web for Speaker Repair ?

    At the bottom is a space to enter something other than what he has listed.
    Velodyne, Sunfire, Krell, Adcom repair, Denon repair, Marantz repair, Philips repair, Mcintosh repair and services

    They have not fixed the amp yet because if just arrived to him yesterday. Check his feedback on the page.

    Thanks guys for the suggestions. Rich - I actually called Definitive's CS number yesterday, but they were gone for the day. I'm going to try again Monday (or Wednesday). jimmie57 - I haven't yet looked online for service providers, that may wind up being my last resort. I did find a seller on Ebay with the exact crossovers and amps I would need (assuming that's the issue). I guess at this point I'm going to wait and see what Definitive says. I'll follow up with the outcome. Thanks again for the feedback - I appreciate your time!

    I also have a pair of BP7004 supertowers that have an issue with the subwoofers or the amps in the cabinets. The subs sound like they are blown - producing lot of distortion.
    After reading this thread i am wondering if it may be the amplifiers. They both produce similar poor sound from the subs so i have them connected to my receiver but not plugged into the wall.
    Can someone provide guidance on how i might determine if it is the driver(s) or the amplifier(s)? The highs and mids still sound great but i can't plug them in and play anything with bass anymore without it sounding terrible. Thank you!

    Hey guys. I have the same low hum on my BP7004s. I called DT customer service and they said it was the amp which is currently not in stock until March and are $90 apiece. I placed my order for two and should have them in a couple of weeks. I’ve had the speakers for 10 years now, love them and figured $180 is better than the $2000 it would cost to replace them.
