Default Speaker Issues

My Roommate has a Cambridge Soundworks MicroWorks system from 1999. The other day the fuse blew, so we replaced it, no problem. Now.... When we turn it on it works A-ok for about 5 seconds, then the sub slowly dies out while the speakers keep going. Its a 2.1 system. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Is this hooked up to an amp? Can you try plugging in other speakers to see if it does the same thing?

Goes from a laptop into a pre amp, then into the sub woofer, which the speakers are connected to. There are no other speakers on hand to test. We have been using this set up all year with no problems. After the fuse blew its been a problem ever since.

Hard to say then if you can't narrow down some of the possibilities.

Kinda sounds like the amp powering the sub has took a dump on you.
But w/o some checking / swapping some speakers in to see if the problem stays the same it's hard to say

Its a self powered sub. We just run it through a receiver, sorry not a pre amp. Its probably the power supply in the sub thats going.

the fuse blowing is telling you there is a problem , my guess is the amp itself is dying and is now drawing way too much current power . i had the same thing happen in my car amps
