First,try switching to a different output(if this is the left speaker,switch it to the right)if it does the same thing,then we need to pull the back off the speaker.to make sure the crossover is not bad your gonna want to unplug the horn & put a signal to it from your source(do this at a low volume with the bass turned down & trble turned up)if you have sound then there is a problem with the crossover(this is the pc board in the enclosure that connects to the speakers)if not your horn is gone.hope this helps,thanx for using fix.please rate all replys

I have just purchased a pair of EV speakers. Just a minor problem - the light on the front of the speaker (near the logo) works perfectly fine on one, but is not working on the other. Help would be...


If the speaker is working then the "power on" LED has a broken wire/bad connection or the LED has burned out. LED's don't burn out often so I would think it is a internal factory wiring issue. If they're still under warranty, have EV fix it.

You could have blown main lower speakers, loose connection or bad caps or transistors on the power amp. it's hard to say without looking at it. Sme with the selecting problem, sounds like a problem with the tormat.

What type of stereo receiver should i buy


Generally speaking it is always better to have separate amp for subwoofers and separate for higher frequencies.
But why do you want to power PA speakers with home/hifi receivers? You don't 90% of features which receivers have. Look for some PA amplifiers and you will get much more power at similar price. Also most receivers have only about 80 - 100 W per channel and this is NOT continuos power over all 5 or 7 channels! Only the most expensive receivers can do that. You can have 100 W for any channel, but not 100 W to all channels at the same time (spikes yes, but not continuously). And 100 W is very little for your PA speakers.
You should buy amp which has the same rating per channel as your speaker continuous power handling. So if your speaker has rating of 300 W cont. / 500 W spikes, buy amp which has at least 300 W, but 500 W would be better.

Will not produce sound through the top end of my speakers,


While this may sound strange, it is not likely the receiver that is the probem, at least at this point. Remove the "tweeters" from the speakers and measure across the two leads. You should read continuity. If not, then the tweeters need to be replaced. I believe that you may have blown the tweeters.

Connection of a subwoofer to Yamaha ZX-V490


Get a powered sub-woofer that has speaker level inputs, then run your front speaker wires into the sub-woofers speaker level input and then run a set of speaker wires from the sub-woofers speaker wire output to your front speakers. This is a common way to use a sub-woofer with a receiver that doesn't have a sub-woofer output.

Most powered sub-woofers have these connections, just check it out first before you buy one. They look like speaker jacks on the back of the receiver.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Alesis prolinear 720 active speakers for music production. The fuse has not blown, the lead works fine but the speaker is not responding, it doesn't turn on.


open the rear and look on the amp board (you may have to unscrew and unclip this too) next to the small white clip that comes from the power supply.
if it looks something like this:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/9676/blown.png
then the following burnt out parts need to be replaced:
NTC thermistor 5 Ohm (Farnell part No:- 1704471)
and
5A antisurge fuse (Farnell part No:- 951620)

upon these parts blowing should protect the rest of the board, so that should be all.....for at least another year.

alesis will either try and charge you £20 per speaker just for parts or try and sell you the whole replacement board for about £100 each.
(the parts are under £2 each)
get some1 with a bit of soldering experience to do it if unsure.

Can I run two E.V. Eliminators (1-15 and horn...8 ohms) in series from the bridged output? What my wattage be? I have an EMX5000 powered mixer. Jim Price pocket218@gmail.com


Hi pocket218

Probably not the way to go about hooking it up. running speakers in series is not very practical with PA gear. The connections get messy to make as you need adaptor leads, and it is something that is seldom ever done.. When you use bridge mode it uses left and right channel together to drive the one output, combining the power. Best bet is to run the EMX5000 in stereo mode, and connect 1 speaker to each channel. You may have been trying to reel in extra power from using bridge mode, but the power amp stages in the EMX will only ever be able to deliver the same MAX power whether in bridge or stereo. the best way to get maximum power and sound pressure levels from the unit is to hook TWO speaker boxes to each channel, you get the combined increase in efficiency of the extra speakers and run the output stages at 4 ohms to get absolutely all the power available
If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask me, happy to talk to you further about it.

I have a set of JBL JRX125 (s) and the high end won't work on them. Not sure if I blew a fuse or the cone or what. The only audio I can get to come through them is low end.


Hi hoit

They will have either blown high frequency compression driver, or the lamp mounted to the crossover board has failed. Best way to check is pull the horn flare out of the speaker box, and check the voice coil of the HF driver(JBL2412). I think they are 8 ohms from memory. If they are shorted, or more likely open circuit then this is you problem. If they appear ok, then check the lamps. The lamps are there to protect the horns from being overdriven, odd lucks means I have seen it work the other way.
If the JBL part is too pricey for you (they are for me), you can get aftermarket replacements from many places for about $40 each. It is a replacement diaphragm that you need for each HF driver.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.
