Do you hook up the speakers to amp from the

Without know what your devices are it's impossible to answer the question. Also an Amp will have speaker terminals and since a receiver is an amp with a tuner, that two will have speaker connections.

I am trying to hook up a RX-B503 amplifier to my KAWASAKI receiver. I have taken the output of the KAWASAKI to the input of the RX-B503 but I'm not getting any sound. I have talked to tech pro and they...

You're already playing around with it and trying to blow it up. Amps/receivers never feed back into other electronics in a continuous loop back to themselves. What 'output' were you trying to run to the the unspecified Kawasaki? Speaker, Tape Out or Pre-Out?

The RX-B503 is a receiver, so it has its own sources.

You don't say what you're trying to accomplish with the Kawasaki. Is it to drive more speakers, slaved to the TechPro, which is stereo-only by the way?

Use the Preamp OUT on the TP for volume-controlled STEREO programming to anything downstream.

Do you even have manuals for any of this?

PYLE PT2001X 3300 Watt Professional DJ Power.just had question about running this amp in bridged mode 4 ohms, here's some amp info 3300 watts total power bridged in 1 ch only.1650 each ch in stereo mode...


In bridge mode the minimum load will be 8 Ohm.
If you are using 4 Ohm speakers, it will mean you will give each side of the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Thats to much for this model.

Kind regards,

You guys was helpful last time so I thought I would ask more!!!! DJ equipment Gem Sound amp EVA-3955 at 8ohms 2x250w blew 2 Tr-150 15'' 8ohms rated at 600w blew. what replacement should I go with same size...

Typically large speakers like that blow up because you are trying to put frequencies into them that they can not reproduce. How are these units connected? Is the crossover frequency correct for these 15" speakers? Putting signals higher than about 1000Hz will start to heat them up. too much heat = blow-up.

Also, I'm not familiar with the tr-150s. Is the 600W rating a PEAK rating or continuous?

Need to know if we can hook a phantom powered microphone to our shs audio amplifier

Does your microphone have it's own built in phantom power? If it's just a regular mic, you should be able to connect into any MIC inputs on your Amplifier. Otherwise, you'll have to utilize a mic/line mixer to provide the phantom power your mic needs. Then you would connect your mixer to the amplifier.

Which SHS Audio amp do you have? The ones that I am familiar with do not have any MIC inputs.

How do i hook two dj amps together


If you have speakers that are rated to handle at least 600wrms, then I would run each amp in bridge mode, with left going to one and right to the other. If you have 2 pairs of speakers, then you may have to invest in some Y splitter cables or adapters to send right and left to each amp running in stereo.

check out the different configurations you can do in the instruction manual here

The details of exactly the connectors/cables you will need to do this are also all in the manual. the only special thing you need if you go the 2 pair of speakers in a Y adapter. Most electronic hobby shops sell these. Happy to answer any questions you have about this.

Hiya dan thanks for reply but heres more

In that case, you have a valid argument for a defect that has pre-maturely fried you speakers. You will need to talk to a manufacturer's rep about this. The local store will not have the authority to change the decision. Unfortunately because of the way the warranty stuff works, the local servicer's hands are tied a bit. You need to speak directly with the manufacturer.

Keep us posted.

Vintage Stereo Connection ???

Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)
