Question about JBL EON 15-G2 Powered DJ Speaker With EQ Speaker

1 Answer

Hiss from the tweeter nothing from the sub

"yard sale" purchased, hoping for a diagnosis. I have ran my bass through a 4 track mixer into the speaker and through a mixing board into the speaker(with and without phantom power) I have to turn the volume on the speaker up to about 3/4 of the way to hear anything then its a hiss and the bass (or guitar) sounds awful with a high pitch coming only from the top horn. Invest in repairs or trash?

    I have the same problem from my new JBL EON 15-G2's. I bought a pair brand new and when you turn the power on you get quite a bit of "hiss" noise from them. It's distracting and dissapointing coming from a top name such as JBL and the high price of these speakers. These are supposed to be top-notch speakers yet they have this awful hiss to them. It's covered up when actually playing a signal through them, but during the pauses they do hiss a lot. What causes this and why did JBL allow them to be produced with this noise?

Trash. Don't run your bass through speakers not designed for it. Likewise (from personal experience) don't allow microphone feedback to get into consumer speakers. Bye-bye tweeters in either case.

Hi i have a few questions. I have bought a dual 12 " sub box and i need 2 subs and one amp to go with it. I want intence base that will impress! I am currently looking at 2 Alpine SWR-12D4 they are...


It's been my experience,that intense and low bass comes with a price,always remember u get what u pay for,so on that note,Try to get Rockford Fosgate Competition subs with a punch 250 or 500 trust me that it is a powerful combination.and if u can afford it get a choke to put on ur subs so they will only kick bass put tweeters in the dash and mid range speakers in the door u could use a dual rca jacks to install 2 amps at once and get a punch 45 amp for the tweeters and mids.hope this was helpful

I put a sub in my 2002 Altima but when I turn it up the bass cracks on the door speakers??? What do I do to get all the bass on the sub


Hi Ethan,

What you're looking for is called a "crossover". A crossover is an electronic filter for an audio or speaker circuit. In an audio circuit, a crossover is used to prevent or pass certain frequencies or a range of frequencies from passing through it. Since your sub will reproduce the bass or low frequencies, you don't want other speakers to reproduce them. A band pass filter on your door speakers will do this for you. A band pass filter passes only a range or "band" of frequencies and blocks those that are above and below the range or band of frequencies selected. Installing a band pass filter will prevent the very high & very low frequencies from getting to the door /dash speakers. Likewise, you should consider connecting a low pass filter to your subs, too. The low pass filters work a little differently from of the way band pass filters work - they only allow low frequencies to get to the sub - blocking all the other higher frequencies (your other speakers are better suited to reproduce those). Lastly, you would install a high pass filters on tweeters. Tweeters are designed to reproduce only the high frequencies - sending mid and low frequencies to them is wasting power and can cause damage to them.

You purchase the filters for specific crossover points (the block / unblocked point) as determined by the individual speakers. If a sub has a frequency response of 20Hz - 100Hz, a low pass filter of 100Hz would be ideal. Remaining filters would need to begin at 100Hz - assuming the mid-range speakers have a frequency response beginning at 100Hz. A band pass filter of 100Hz - 3KHz would fit the bill nicely if the mid-range speakers go up to 3Khz Match the high end of the band pass to the high end of the frequency response of the mid-range speakers. Next, a high pass filter at 3KHz would allow only the high frequencies to your tweeters. Basically, you want to have the entire audible range 20Hz - 20KHz covered by the speakers and have the crossover points that match the frequency response ranges of the speakers.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My jamo d115 speaker tweeter distorts or rattels when any serious bass kicks in, how do you stop this?w


Possible this is a distortion from the Amplifier if the speakers are not damaged. however it is important to switch the speakers to confirm if the fault is relative to the particular channel in which case the amplifier is faulty. If not the speaker can be the culprit. All what is needed is to reduce the BASS level a bit lower when the volume is increased so as to allow the cross over to work. Also if teh cross- over network is faulty within the speaker the bass can vibrate on the tweeter.

Mackie SRM 450, the main speaker has stopped working but the tweeter is OK, there is nothing coming from the speaker at all, no hiss, or clicks.


It could be 2 things:

*Blown Speaker or,
*Fried power amp output stage of woofer, since this speaker operates as a bi-amplified system it has separate amps for woofer/tweeter...

I want bass that can pound


What kind of speakers are they? Liquid cooled speakers? I am assuming you are working with the bazooka speakers? Honest sugguestion: get different speakers. Bazooka is not that good of a brand. looking at bazooks's webiste the magnet size is only 30 ounces! The only good thing I have seen that have come out of bazooka was way back in the day their "P. Miller" series (a.k.a. Master P) And I never tested the subs, only the amp. What kind of car are you putting them in?

Next, a 4 channel amp is usually designated for the midrange/tweeter speakers. If you want good hard bass, only a mono or duel channel amp will put out the ohms that you need. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you get 20 dollar speakers and a 50 dollar amp, do NOT expect to hang with the big boys, even if the speaker is a 30 inch and the amp claims to be a 10,000 watt. Stay away from sony, stay away from bazooka, stay away from unknown brands.

My ideal set up would be Alpine type R or type X for subs, a Fosgate or memphis amp, and mb quart mid/tweeters. All are readily available, so competition keeps the prices affordable. Look at magnet weight when choosing subs.

Outta phase? if a tweeter is out will make sub distort?


A Tweeter being out of phase should not have any effect on the sub.

If one tweeter is out of phase with the other there will still be sound in the room as due to the high frequency the unequal time to your ear will mean you won't get perfect destructive interference and the signals won't cancel. Also the two tweeter signals convey much less information in common than a subwoofer or bass speaker.

Andrew

You can purchase a bass cd with test tracks....just be careful, these tracks can damage speakers not rated to handle the stress of extreme bass.

Car sound system. only sub is giving off sound. other 4 speakers dont work at all


Could be bad outputs from the back of your head unit or also could be bad rca cables. Make sure the amp is on and powered.
