Repair of ALTO PS4HA Bi Amplified - Powered Speaker
Fault: The speaker had a distorted sound.
This speaker has 2 amplifiers - a 350w class H for the 12" driver and a 100w class B for the tweeter, On inspection found the tweeter amplifier was giving a distorted waveform on the negative going part of the sine wave test signal, found the tweeter amplifier to be a TDA7294 100w integrated amplifier chip, which can be just seen middle top of photos bellow, suspected this to be the problem as a clean signal was going into the amplifier.
The amplifier is mounted on a dedicated PCB board fed by the back ribbon cable
De-soldered the Amplifier chip
Installed a new TDA7294 Amplifier chip and refitted to the heatsink - see old chip lying next to it.
Tested unit - now showing a good clean waveform all the way up to 20Khz
Re-assembled the PCBs and covers
Tested speaker for 4 hours all ok.
This unit is quite neat and easy to work on, the only thing I don't like is the input board that has a DSP, which is a bit over the top and would be quite expensive to replace.
