Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s

I am playing with a six string Artisan Cort bass guitar, connected to the Peavey Bass Amp TKO115s. Set to smiley face EQ settings and played around with the Low and High gains
Near the amp the clarity is fine
When listening to the notes about 30 meters away the notes are distorted
How can I overcome the problem?

Start with a clean setting - zero cut and zero gain on the Eq. Play a song close to the amp, and then move away, playing the same notes. Do you still get the distortion? Change lower the input gain and repeat the test. Lower the output gain and repeat. Are any outboard distortion pedals in the mix, such as overdrive? Eliminate them. Run straight through from your axe to the amp. Check for any distortion settings. Set everything including reverb to zero. When the distortion disappears, this is your base setting.
Change only ONE parameter at a time. When the distortion comes back, you have found your problem.+

I recently bought the yamaha rx-v567 and I own a yamaha EQ-70. How do I configure and hook up the EQ to the receiver?


The EQ is connected via one of the Tape loops on the amp (rec out from EQ to play in on amp,rec out on amp to play in on EQ). You then switch "Tape Monitor" on to hear the sound with the EQ settings applied. You can also connect it across Pre out and Main in should you have such sockets. I'm pretty sure it will only affect the main two front channels and not the surround channels.

The settings on my Peavey Q215FX dual 15 band graphic equalizer w/fls have been changed and I am unsure where they were set at and what the correct settings should be.


Assuming that you eq is installed in your system correctly add a source like a cd of the type of music you will be putting through the system. Now starting at 0 on all frequencies adjust to your liking. Try to avoid going above 0 as much as possible because this will be adding to that particular frequency and could damage your speakers if done incorrectly.

If there is too much bass lower your sliders to the left. If there is not enough highs boost the sliders to the right up to about half way then start decreasing the bass to get the desired effect. Small increments is important.

I found that if you go to your local music store the people there are more than willing to help you.

GETTING BETTER SOUND QUALITY


An equaliser is, put simply, a more complex tone control, giving you the ability to cut or boost more specific frequencies than a tone knob, or bass & treble controls.

It comes in handy for tweaking the sound from your hi-fi to just the way you like it. But beware, as it can make your hi-fi produce sounds that are so bass or treble heavy, that you can damage your speakers if you're not careful.

Adding another compnent into the chain (like a graphic EQ) can add a little background noise but this Technics EQ is a pretty quiet one & you probably won't notice the noise apart from when there's no music playing & you've got the amp turned up high.

Bass frequncy


Hi there,
Although I am not familiar with the Zoom HD 8 Track I am a former sound engineer so may be able to offer some general advice.
Firstly, because the wave pattern of low frequencies is very long, there are a number of things that will greatly effect bass response caused by standing waves.
1) The position of your bass monitors. Ideally these should be low down but not directly on the floor, especially if the flooring is wooden.
2) Try your monitors/speakers at a slightly different angle. Bass can bounce off walls, back towards the sound source and phase out the signal, rather like a noise cancelling system.
3) Try listening to the sound in different areas of the room. You will be amazed at how the sound pressure level will vary, simply by you moving from one position to another.
4) Never put bass tracks exactly at centre, always offset them slighly by a few degrees left or right.
5) Do some of your mixing using headphones, you will not have to worry about standing waves. But remember that things sound very different on speakers in free space.
Strangely, the reason you are getting distortion when you turn things up is probably because your bass is on the verge of over modulation to start with. Really bass is felt, not heard. You could try is to decrease your mid and high frequencies a little. The ratio between high frequencies and low ones will then increase by default and your bass may feel heavier.
What are you mixing?
