Madrigal Has Recalled Subwoofers

Middletown, CT  (SafetyAlerts) - Madrigal Audio Laboratories, Inc. has recalled about 1,300 subwoofer speakers. A screw inside of the subwoofer can cause a high voltage short, which could cause a severe injury to consumers through an electric shock.

Madrigal has received one report of electric shock; though, no injuries have been reported.

The recalled Revel B-15 subwoofers have an outer cabinet with a black or gray speaker grill on the front and are about 20 inches in width, height, and depth. The brand name "Revel" is printed on the bottom left of the rear panel and "PERFORMA B15 SUBWOOFER" is printed on the bottom right. The 1000W subwoofers were made in the United States.

Specialty audio dealers sold the subwoofers nationwide and in Puerto Rico from January 2001 through October 2002 for about $3,000.

Consumers should not touch the rear panel, use the power switch, or remove the power cord or any connections from the back of the unit until it is repaired. Consumers should immediately contact the dealer from whom the subwoofer was purchased or Madrigal at (800) 424-8043 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive a free repair and new computer software.
