I got a broken subwoofer from a friend of my dad.
It has a build-in amplifier. During testing we came across some problems, most of which we solved. But during these tests, out of the blue, something began smoking. It was around the capacitors. We tested the capacitor and noticed it was broken and since then I have been searching for one with the exact same "specs" (I'm not really familiar with all the terms used for these parts), but we had a hard time finding them.
I've been doing some research online and found a lot of questions about capacitors for monitors and TVs, where they said you can vary a bit in volts or farad.
Does the same go for subwoofers? I included a picture of the capacitor we took out of the subwoofer.
The reason why I want to know if it can vary in, for example, volts, is that I have found a lot of 6800uf 63 VDC capacitors.
I hope someone here can answer my question. I have been stuck with this problem for almost half a year now because of the capacitors from Amazon.
Kind regards, Rick
I want to thank you all for helping me out. altough i searched a lot I never came across the site of Farnell, where I found one with the same farad and volts. Also thanks to all of you I now understand a little more about these parts. As recommended I will check the voltage of the cap, as well as the rectifiers.
I sincerely thank you all for helping me out and if interested, I can update this question when the new capacitor is attached to the subwoofer.
Edit 2: Hello again,
After attaching the new capacitor we came across a new problem, a part which I think they call an amplifier, began smoking as soon as we turned on the power. So apparantly the capacitor wasn't the part which was smoking. Now again the question, does anyone know where I can buy the exact same one as I took off? A picture of the one we took off is displayed below. I thought I found one but some letters don't match. What do all the letters and numbers on this piece stand for? And does it matter wheter I buy the exact same one or one with little different letters?
