• isub (subwoofer)

    I don't know if this newsgroup is still in use.

    Many years ago, when the animals still talked :-) , I used to have a
    imac G3 ("strawberry model"). I do not have that computer any more it
    went to a personal computer-museum), but recently I came across the isub subwoofer I bought with that computer.

    It does not seams to work any more, but before I spend to much time (or
    money) trying to fix it, I do have two questions.

    - Is it possible to use that device on a modern computer?
    It has a USB interface, but does it present itself a standard USB audio
    device? Or it is some "apple proprietary" audio system?

    - As said, for some reason the device does not seams to work any more. I
    am not sure if the problem is the PSU or the speaker itself.
    Is there a quick way to test which device is faulty?

    The power-supply has three pins (marked "+", "-" and "NC"). I do not get
    any voltage on the "+" pin, but I am not sure if that is an indication
    or not. Perhaps you need to put a voltage on the NC pin to get the
    power-supply to work.

    Anybody any idea?

    Cheerio! Kr. Bonne.
