Question about Alesis M1-Active MkII Main / Stereo Speaker

1 Answer

Speaker will not turn on

Hi guys, was using ableton and it crashed, with three channels maxing out the volumes and making a really high pitched noise. When I exited I noticed one of my Alesis M1 MK2s wasn't working.

It won't turn on now. A friend suggested it's just a fuse blown and I could replace it myself. If this is basic I can certainly do that, but otherwise I'd rather get it repaired professionally.

Anyone got any tips/suggestions?

How do I replace a fuse if this will fix it, or how do I find out if this is the problem? If I need to replace a fuse what fuse do I need to buy?

I have a very limited technical knowledge so all advice greatly appreciated.

Actully the problem is your speaker which is shorted. The speaker assembly or the one who crashed out always, when you excited the volume to max it feedback to amplifier Ic to cut the fuse blown. The amperage goes up and sent to either left or right amplifier power supply.
Even you replace the fuse with a new one it will repeat the situation and story.
later sooner it will damage more.

You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

In turning up volume on eon g2 15 I get crackle sound and then when I mess with switch it finally works. The speaker has been used probably 10 times max. Its not a cord problem..perhaps its the control?


This model has very cheap pots. What really happens is the center pin on the pot breaks leaving the wiper that rides on the carbon track to lift, causing this problem. Use caution as this condition continues the pot will go bad enough to send max volume to the system causing severe damage to the speaker, and maybe the listener. THE GREAT OZ.

Hi...i have an rxv663 yamaha receiver... when i turn on the volume from -7db to max i hear a noise from my speakers even if i dont have any input on the reciever...what can i do?


How loud? Just noticeable if you focus or could it be buried by music? I've heard of and had noise from other electical devices in room like a light dimmer. Try headphones. Make sure your signal and speaker wires aren't running near power cords or sources of high current or magnetic fields like TV's and other speakers.

I purchased a JBL PB12 (120v) subwoofer from a friend. It worked excellent for a month or so, but completely went on the fritz yesterday. Whenever I turn it on, I get a loud whining noise, that starts high...


It sounds like something on your main board of your amp is going out. It is most likely the finals, or as you said a capacitor. Test the port with another speaker, if al is well then the wooferis bad. if not you will have to go inside the amp for repair. Depending on the brand it can be a little complicated. Try and narror it down to the proper componet, post back the results and we will go from there. Also is this sound comming from all channels or just the woofer?

Speaker stops after a few minutes


I was having the same problem but I seemed to solve it by having the laptop volume maxed and using the dock to control volume. I think that it has a sleep function where if it is not getting a signal it powers off and for some reason the laptop isn't putting out a strong enough signal to keep it awake. Maxing the laptop volume seems to give it a constant enough signal so that the problem went away.

Hiss from the tweeter nothing from the sub


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.
