Samsung Subwoofer Damaged By A Mouse
The complaint of this Samsung subwoofer was no sound and the customer said he saw a mouse went into that hole.
The first test I done on this subwoofer is to check the speaker Ohm and as expected there was no reading-see the photo below:
The next step was to detach the cover so that I could check what was wrong with it. In my opinion the speaker wire could have been broken.
Once the screws of the speaker had been removed my guess was right-the speaker wire was torn and the culprit was the mouse-see the photo below:
The next thing to do is to search for a new speaker wire and my compartment had one-see the photo below:
After done the soldering of the new wire onto the speaker I rechecked the speaker Ohm resistance and found that it shows 4.8 ohm which means it was good.
I knew that if the customer take back his subwoofer, I can guarantee that the same mouse will attack the speaker wire again thus I came out with a solution which is to put in a metal net to block the mouse from going into the subwoofer again.
Take a look at my idea below and I hope the customer will catch the mouse soon.
