Description: Loudspeaker Recalled by Cambridge SoundWorks NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Media Relations April 17, 1996 (301) 504-7908 Release # 96-105 CPSC, Cambridge SoundWorks Announce Loudspeaker Recall WASHINGTON, D.C.-In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Cambridge SoundWorks Inc., of Newton, Mass., is recalling 6,450 "Powered Subwoofer" loudspeakers that may overheat, causing the internal speaker cone to ignite. Cambridge SoundWorks has received four reports of the loudspeakers overheating to cause internal damage to the product only. The company and CPSC have received no reports of injury or property damage involving these loudspeakers. The loudspeakers are used in stereo and home theater sound systems to reproduce deep bass notes. Cambridge SoundWorks' nationally distributed catalogue, retail stores in New England and northern California, and Best Buy stores, sold the loudspeakers nationwide for between $599 and $700 beginning in June 1992. No other products offered by Cambridge SoundWorks are involved in this recall. Cambridge SoundWorks will provide consumers who purchased the recalled loudspeaker through the company's catalog and retail stores with a kit that includes two new fuses (one is a spare) and installation instructions to prevent the overheating of the loudspeakers. Consumers can repair the speakers in their homes by replacing the original fuse included with the loudspeaker with the new one. To intensify efforts in locating Best Buy customers who own the "Powered Subwoofer," Cambridge will offer a $30 rebate to Best Buy customers who will also receive a replacement fuse and installation instructions from the store. Consumers should stop using and unplug their "Powered Subwoofer" and call Cambridge SoundWorks at (800) 367-4434 for more information. They can also write to the company at 311 Needham Street, Newton, Mass. 02164, Att: Fred Pinkerton, Product Manager. [Learn More]
