Repairing a Pair of Audioengine A5 Speakers #Audio
limpkin started experiencing an issue with a pair of A5 speakers: the right speaker was getting quieter than the left one!
The speakers are no longer in production, so no spare parts are available. Some troubleshooting led to the faulty component. Then lumpkin writes:
At the end of my debugging adventures I had a brain wave: if the manufacturer doesn’t have the spare parts and doesn’t sell this model anymore, why doesn’t he release the source files?
I continued my support thread and got a nice surprise: Audioengine sent me the schematics!
You’ll therefore find them below if you ever encounter an issue with Audioengine A5s… a5_amplifier_board_schematics.pdf a5_input_stage_board_schematics.pdf
