Dang the fuses 2a 250v I got today at Home Depot both blew. It turned on with the green light and a pop sound but turned off after three seconds. I ordered some fuses on a Amazon last night but they won't arrive till Friday. If all fails I will open it up to see if anything blew inside.

continuously popping fuses is a sure sign of other damage/problems

I have the 2011 edition. It is a pretty good starting point, for sure. It is a fairly general starting guide, but it does have sections where it tries to give specific troubleshooting for specific types of electronics.

One of the most useful sections is the "toolbox" section where it helps you to determine what tools and measurement instruments you actually need to be successful, as well as the "Nice to Have" items.

I think it will be a vinyl day. What vinyl are you playing lately? Been awhile since I've played anything. Start with the underrated Gino:

Since I got some encouragement from you guys to put up these heights. :)I got these speakers used on ebay two years ago for about 25$ and the shelf about two months ago at 5 and Below. The hammer is new from Amazon for 5ish. I live in an apartment so I dont want to put alot of holes on the wall. Yeah I know I can cover them up, but don't wanna and blah blah blah. These will go over my head with the speakers leaning down for the sweetest spot. Now to look for some wires. Stay tuned Rah.

I think I changed my mind. Gonna use only two holes instead of four and use the two adjustment that come with the speakers and place on wall. Hungry gotta eat and resume.

Results and will test tonight. I like the way they came out. They are three feet up above from where the bookshelves are. Hopefully I can work on the sub this week. Back is still a bit weak.

Acoustic Audio? Aren't those white van specials?
No just not a well known brand. Got it at my local thrift store for $15. Here are some pics I don’t see any type of problem maybe someone can see something I don’t? If anything I can always get a amp later on.

Someone answered saying:
Most likely one or more of the output transistors failed, that's been my experience with two AB amps I've repaired that were blowing fuses on power up. If you can determine which transistor failed a replacement may only be a few bucks. If you don't feel up to troubleshooting the individual components like that a replacement plate amp from parts express is probably your best bet.
Anyone know a cheap way to check a transistor? and which one they are in the pics?
