I only have a vintage Peavey XR600B and I want to connect and ipod and ipad up to it so I can play music. Can I do this or do I need special cables?


Sure you can, but that mixer amp is a mono amp instead of stereo. Head for radio shack and get an 1/8" stereo male phone jack to 1/4" female mono adaptor. Plug the adaper into the headphone output of your device. Then run a shielded cable with 1/4" mono phone plugs on both ends (like an electric guitar would use) from the device to one of the channels on the Peavey. Bring the volume up on both the channel and master on the amp up maybe 1/3 the way. Play a track on your device and adjust the devices out put as high as it will go with out distorting the channel input. Then adjust the amp's channel and main output as you would normally to get the final volume you need.

Rockaverb 50 amp head. 1/4 inch plug tip broken off and stuck in 8 ohm socket. How do I open head & casing to remove tip. Are there any diagrams available online that show correct procedure.


actually there are a few ways of doing this that require no disassembly ( and i better get a good rateing for revealing these secrets haha ) check it out. take a Q-Tip and break off one of the fluffy heads. Apply some super glue to the end you broke off and shove that into the 1/4"jack and essentially glue it to the qtr inch tip. let this sit for a second and pull. should come right out IF NOT you can also try to find a screw ( usually a wood screw ) and you can thread that into the hole of the tip of the connector. if this doesnt get it out post back so i'll know and i'll walk you through how to remove the chassis and pcb's safetly. good luck!

Just bought a Harbinger HX121M 2" Monitor, from Musicians Friend it did not come with a booklet on how to wire into my sound system it has two 1/4" jacks and a strange round plug about the size...


If you don't know how to connect this... well we don't either because you did not tell us what your sound system is. The larger plug is what is known as a "Speakon" connector and is a fairly reliable speaker connection that is used now. For your use you will PROBABLY use either of the 1/4 inch jacks with a cable from the amp that will drive the monitor(s). If you have multiple monitors you will daisy chain them using the 1/4 inch jacks and SPEAKER rated cables creating a string of speakers with input going into one and an output from the same one to the next speaker and so on...USUALLY you will be limited to two speakers per amp output...

How do you use the mixer with a regular combo amp and stereo mic cable?


This is not hard to do, but it will require some adapters. Hosa company makes adapters to accomplish this. For example, if your Stereo mic has "1/4 inch male phone plugs" Hosa makes and adapter that has 1/4 inch female plug to Male XLR connectors. The Mackie, and just about every mixer in the world these days has Female XLR connectors for it's microphone inputs. So that will handle tha.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "combo" amp. If it has XLR inputs you can use Tip Ring Sleve male output jacks to the output. If your amp as conventional 1/4 inch female input jacks. Than a simple
1/4 inch Male to Male Guitar Cable will work fine. DON'T USE A SPEAKER CABLE as it is uninsulated and you will get 60Hz hum.
I hope this helps,
That looks like a great quality mixer you have!
Happy New Year,
Mark

No sound to speakers


There are many things, including hardware failure to cause this.

Make sure that the PFL buttons are ALL up. The LED indicators on the right are shared with solo channel and main output.

REMEMBER that the MAIN 1/4 inch jacks are TRS balanced and plugging a mono cable into these OR st the other end plugging into a MONO will short out the balanced line drivers. Since this also goes to the power amp, that can ground out the signal to the amps. All the other 1/4 inch jacks are pseudo balanced and mono plugs will not cause a problem other than possible hum or noise levels.

Do you get anything out of the PHONES jack?

Note that the standby switch must be UP in the upper right corner... it kills the first 12 channels. ALso with two speakers make sure the MAIN slide switch is in the MAIN A MAIN B upper position.

Start with all your PAN controls at 12 o'clock.

I have repaired two of these units and a PMP3000. Great caution: NEVER pull or insert speaker cables while unit is on. Great damage can be done. IF the fuse blows do NOT replace it!!! Get serviced immediately as replacing the fuse will likely do more damage. The worst damaged one required replacing around a dozen transistors and other components.

The power amps in these have a habit of arcing out... NEVER store in a high humidity area!!!

Try a set of stereo headphones plugged into the L and R MAIN out 1/4 inch jack... If you have audio there your power amps have failed or the +/- 85 volt supply has smoked.

Vintage guitar speaker identification


The C12Q is a 35 watt,12 inch, Jensen replacement speaker.
The C7368 is similar to the C12Q.

These were used in Ampeg amps

the 6920006 is a patent number.

Before doing anything with the speakers check their condition. Check the voice coil resistance and manually move the cone +/- a quarter inch and listen for any rubbing.

Where can I download a driver for Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?


HI, maybe theres been a bit of confusion but your Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers shouldn't need any drivers.
Its kind of similar to you plugging in a pair of headphones into your cumputer, they should work just fine.
Are you not getting any sound? Post the details of your PC (is it a dell?)
model number etc... and describe your problem
You probably need audio drivers for your audio device(inside your pc on your motherboard),
