Hi Micah, What Amp and leads do you have? Your passive speaker will need to be plugged into your amp speaker outs , and you radio into your Amps Tuner/Radio input or Aux, but just depends what system you have. Check what inputs and outputs your amp has and what leads you need as a lot of systems need different setup and cables/leads.

I have a optimus ssm-1750 radio shack mixer that when hooking my phone to it to play music i can only get it to play through one speaker


Check wiring and connections to the speaker that is not working. Reverse speakers to localize problem.

Just bought the mackie 1604 vlz3 mixer and cant figure out how to get sound to the main speakers, the speakers and amps are connected correctly


Simplest is to use the LR button at the bottom of the channel strips you want to send to the main mix. Make sure you set the gain for each channel in use so that the clip light just occasionally blinked then back off a fraction.
If you want to use sub channels assign the strip to the appropriate one 1/2 or 3/4 and the assign the sub to the main mix and bring the subs up.

Blown speakers?


usually with a blown speaker you will get sound but it sounds like there is an abundance of paper very loose on the speaker, so if there is no sound at all try taking the box apart if you are familiar with stuff like this and check to see if there are any loose wires or blown capacitors

Distortion troubles with numark ndx400's


The bad news is it could be any of them. or it could be the lighting- CFL's and regular flourescent lighting are bad for audio, as are switching supplies used in TV's, microwave ovens and some musical gear. They are worse than lighting dimmers for noise.

The thing to do is start at the speaker itself and work through the chain of devices to find the one distorting. An old transistor radio is useful here. Most actually do have enough power to faintly drive a large speaker- listen for scraping and rattling- it would mean the voice coil windings may have come loose or the coil form is damaged from heat.

Move back to the amp input and try again- this time listen for a clipped sound if the speaker checked out okay. It would sound like the Charlie Brown adults in the cartoons. That would be a failure of an active component in the amp. If you now hear rattling or scraping- the speaker voice coil is bad and should be repaired or replaced.

If it sounds good, move back to each deck. apply your radio- volume turned down to an input it one is provided. Each should sound clean like the amp did. If no sound or distorted sound is found here- which is the most probable location, it is likely one of the IC chips is at fault. Likely a 4558 if an IC fault, otherwise suspect dirt or hair on the encoder connected to the spin platters.

Hi there just bought some wharfdale monitor speakers yesterday they seemed to go good and today they are creating wierd high pitched crackly sounds without even playing anything.. can you please help?


Do you live near an airport or some other place with a lot of radio traffic? I've had a similar problems with some of my speakers because of intense radio frequencies. if the problem persists in other places that the speakers are placed, perhaps you might need to run some shielded cable to block interference.

I Have a Peavey XR 600B mixer. There are only 2 inputs in the rear for speakers. I want to add more speakers to be used as monitors or just have extra speakers. How can this be done? I only have...


First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.

WE ARE EXPERIENCEING RADIO INTERFERENCE AND ARE BLOWING SPEAKERS, DO WE NEED TO HAVE THE MIXER AND EQUIPMENT ON UPS SYSTEMS WE ARE USING NADV AUDIO PM-200 A POWERED STAGE MOINTOR 115/230 VOLT SER#...


UPS will not help this. Make sure you are using GOOD quality balanced cables, preferably XLR to connect to powered speakers. Make sure ALL (read that "ALL" closely) of your equipment is powered from the SAME receptacle or power module... this means run power to your mixer or speakers alongside your audio lines or snake between the units. This includes ANY other devices tied into your mixer with the exception of truly ground lifted DI's.

Good way to pop speakers is to run them on stage power and mixer from plug at the rear of a room... The common mode ground noise will exceed the common mode capability of the audio inputs and fry them.

I feel like a dork asking this question but how do you connect the amplifier to your mixer. I see that there are places for a banna plug however my mixer will not take a 1/4 banna plug.


In case you don't have one, here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80300573.pdf I don't know if you are using a separate crossover between the mixer and the amp but here is the simplest explanation.I just reread your question and I don't even know whether you have a Peavey amp. Run proper cables from the main output of your mixer to the main inputs of your power amp.They will be 1/4"shielded cables or Balanced XLR cables. Do not use unshielded speaker cables to hook the mixer and the amp together.Run speaker cables from the speaker outputs of the amp to the input jacks of your speakers.Make sure the impedance of your speaker cabinets equals or exceeds the impedance rating marked on your amp. Here is the link to the newer model PV2600 manual:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/media/pv2600_doc_manual.pdf Don't use Speakon cables unless your speaker cabinets are equipped with Speakon input jacks. Banana plugs aren't as solid a connection as the binding posts are.

Always check your cables and connectors on them to make sure the cable is good and the connectors are not loose. This sounds like a bad cable or connection between the line output of your mixer and input to your stereo.
