Fuses have different blow characteristics. Such to protect components differently. An extremely fast fuse would protect sensitive components like tweeters and slower fuse will allow transcients to pass and blow on long time fault. If you put a slow blow in place of fast blow, it won't blow as quickly, but it could allow the protected device to be damaged. In reverse, you put a fast blow in place of slow blow, it will blow at normal transcients and be a nuscience to always replace.
You can cross to a fuse of different manufacturer. The reliable manufacturers will have detailed datasheet and subsitute or similar fuse to the fuse you are looking for.

SOURCE: Cerwin Vega V-35 Horns Drivers Model TMH-1

first you need a multimeter set to OHM , check on the back of the horn , remove the leads and do some reading , it should read 4 , 8 , 16 ohms depending of the brand , if you get no reading its means that need to be replaced , some horns you can detach the back (magnet w/the coil ) so you can replace it without buying the whole unit . good luck

SOURCE: I recently purchased a denon av surround re-

Depending on the wattage of the amp to the wattage off the speakers depends on what to use and how to control them..If your speakers are rated for more power than the amp can produce it will blow the fuses just as if the amp is rated for more than the speakers it will blow the fuse..Those type of speakers do need a good supply of power to run and speaker wire size could play an important part of that.If wire supply is to small it will over heat the coil in speakers and also blow the fuse...Look in side of the boxes to see what kind of capacitors they have on the speakers or there size to insure correct for speakers them selves..Also look at all of the wire routling in the amp to insure proper installation..Hope this helps you..Have a great day

Take a look at the Voltage selector switch (if one is existing). It may be switched at the wrong position. In that case, I hope that the power supply is not burned out (if it is set at the wrong position).

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

What is the voltage and wattage of the Cerwin Vega E-715 speaker fuse?


Speaker fuses are rated in Amps. If you cant find the specs on your speaker via google, (I couldn't find anything on the fuse.) start with a 2 Amp 'slow-blow' fuse. That should work at low to medium volumes. If you find it blows at low volumes, move up to a 4 or 5 Amp fuse. E-715 is a big speaker, (handles 400W!) so starting at 2 amps should be pretty safe.

Can i use a 250v 4a fuse for my cerwin vaga speaker even if its not a slow blow and what could happen if i did would it damage the speakers


If you're replacing the fuse with the same specs and the only difference is the new one is not a "slow blow", you won't damage the speakers, but the fuse could blow again even if there is no actual fault. The slow blow is designed to accept a temporary surge of power without blowing - as in initial power up.

Got a cerwin vega cls 12s keeps blowing fuses. It has been well kept and all the connections are in the right place. It pop's before the light can come on. How do I fix, radio shack just down the road.


Hi,
by the sounds of it the internal transformer could be duff. You need to take readings from the transformer using a multimeter to check correct voltages are coming out of the transformer to their destinations. I would also chek the capacitors and other components on the chain pre and post transformer to make sure none of them are damaged too.

I need fuses for my cerwin vega re 38 speakers, I need help locating these fuses


Should be 2.5 amp SLOW BLOW fuses. Not at home, but mine have a label near the fuse holder showing 2.5. Important to get the slow blow. I get mine at Radio Shack in a multipack (amp underwpowered, blow them often)

PC power supply fuse - T6.3h 250v engraved on end


T = time delay (slow blow)
6.3A = 6.3 Amperes maximum load
H = HRC - high rupture current (as you specified a ceramic fuse)
250V = 250V AC rated

other letters you may see
FF = ultra fast blow
F = fast blow
M = medium blow
TT = very slow blow
L = low blow current
H = high blow current (glass package)
S = sand filled

How many ohms? 6 ? 8 ?


David,
The AT line were all rated at 3.2 ohms. Any amp or receiver rated to handle 4 ohms loads will work. The fuses and tweeter breakers are sensitive to clipping so most low cost amp's and just about every receiver will cause undue clipping. CV stated that increasing the fuse a half amp would increase the time before blowing the fuse or breaker but that will only cause additional harm to the voice coil.
