Dynamo 500 Customer Review
by Chaitanya Evani, 2 years ago
Having heard great reviews about the Martin Logan Sub-Woofers from the folks at BestBuy Magnolia, I bought the Dynamo 500 Sub from Amazon. However, my excitement lasted only for a few minutes after connecting the sub up to my receiver.
As suggested, I carefully hooked up all the cables, turned down the volume level, double checked all the connections and setup the system to play the "moderate" listening level suggested in the manual. But, it only took about five minutes of playtime before it shut off. I immediately disconnected the speaker from the receiver and the power source to check for the fuse and was surprised to find it already popped.
So, I picked up a couple of replacements of the fuse (the slow blow 1.6A 250V glass fuses - recommended by ML) from Frys only to find that the moment any of these fuses were installed and the sub powered on, with/without the input from the receiver and the volume levels turned down fully, they all got blown one after another.
Going back to the forums for help, I now realize that this seems to be a common problem. It is disappointing to have a product from such a great company and not be able to enjoy it at all.
