This is a bit of a technical question...

I have a axipm ep125 (i believe the first edition), and it has recently stopped working. It just doesn't seem to get any power (the led doesn't turn on). I believe it was due to an electrical spike. The fuse was burnt and I couldn't find any 1.25 A fuses. I chose a 1 A fuse instead and the speaker still doesn't power on.

Is there any reason that the subwoofer wouldn't turn on with an under-rated fuse?

Also, Is there any specific part i should look at if I want to repair something that was fried inside it (i'm confident if i have a bit of guidance, i am an electrical engineer)

Thanks if you can help.

Unless the 1A replacement fuse blew I don't think an under-rated fuse should stop the sub from turning on. The new fuse might blow in normal use but that's not your problem right now.

We haven't seen a lot of Axiom subwoofer problems here other than those related to shipping damage or teething problems with the first EP500/600 units a couple of years ago so there may not be a big body of experience re: what components to look at. I assume you checked to make sure that the new fuse didn't fry, and that it's not a slow-blo vs. an original fast-blo ?

Axiom's customer service is really good so first step might be to give them a call.

First off, I'd give Axiom a call... they may really go above and beyond with helping you before you start having to tinker at all yourself.

And no... the only problems you should encounter with using an underrated fuse would be it blowing prematurely (insert joke here, Peter!) or if the original fuse was a fast-blow (insert joke here, Peter) type and you used a slow-blow (and here) type. It may not have opened the circuit fast enough to protect from damage.
