I was watching "Tbe Killers, Live from the Royal Albert Hall" and I wasn't hearing much from my EP500, so I went to turn it up, and noticed that actually I'm not getting anything from my EP500 at all.

Even the power light is off. I tried a different outlet just in case, but still nothing.

Are there user replaceable fuses on this sub? or should I call Axiom?

Yeah, Shady; if even the power light is off, it's highly likely that a fuse needs to be replaced.

My model has 4 fuses. A main high amp fuse which is easy to find, and 3 low amp fuses, not so easy to find. Axiom was kind enough to send me a few, but I chew through these little things at a phenomenal rate. I get them from Mcmaster.com stock #6978K744 for the 1/4 amp fuses.

If your sub is going through fuses like that why not contact Axiom for warranty service. That certainly can't be considered normal.

Yeah, I'd probably get a replacement amp from Axiom for Scott's issue.

Shady's does sound like a fuse, probably the main one.

No, very not normal. It's even worse when I have the 12V trigger connected (so I have to turn on the sub manually - I need some form of exercise). I remember reading something here about a voltage mismatch between the Axiom amp and the Emo Pre-Pro with respect to the XLR connections. I don't think I can blame one company or the other for 2 standards existing, so I tolerate the fuse changes. I contacted Axiom quite some time ago when this first started happening and they didn't seem to be too concerned. Since no damage, that I can tell, is occurring in either unit, I'm not inclined to replace either one.

If I'm good about turning on the sub after turning on the pre-pre and turning off the sub before the pre-pre, I get a good 4-6 months out of the fuses. Sometimes its only one that pops, sometimes its 2, occasionally its all 3.

I can live with it... for now.

Scott, I have about 10,000 hours on my EP500 over the last 3 1/2 years, with no problems. Even if someone at Axiom wasn't "concerned" about what you've described, I certainly would be and would press the matter further.
