    HI...
    Can security try a diff channel on their radios?
    Some amp designs have a sneaky way of picking up radio signals
    Another try could be to use a shielded speaker cable so it doesnt act as an antenna.

Hi,

You can try to use some toroids in your speakerline.
Your speakercable can be a fabulous antenna depending on the length of it and the frequenty off your two way radio.
So, it's important that you don't have a quarter or half wave cable comparing to your radio system.

Kind regards,
Gerard

I think Radio Shack has a kit for this problem. Not sure about the cost, it's been awhile since I dealt with this problem. Good Luck.

How can i get rid of the hum?


It sounds to me like you could have mains hum breaking into your system because the large Electrolytic Capacitors in the power supply of your amp have failed.

Powers on then immediatly shuts off


Sounds like your missing your power control wire that activates it threw the radio. When you turn the radio on a hot wire activates and runs to the amp turning it on. Search for it.Remember to rate my solution this is how i earn my achievements also testimonial Thanks much in advance.

Sound interference and sometimes loss of sound. If we turn off lighting source it improves but also happens if no other power on except normal supply into our house. Speakercraft is being used in...


Oh boy, you have your work cut out for you. With a whole-house system you have a zillion opportunities for noise and hum to creep into those miles of wire. Start with total disconnection of as much as possible and see what source or output opens the door for the noise as you add it. Then evaluate the cabling for routing near or parallel to power sources, motors, magnetic fields, shielding in general.

The track light thing plagues me, too, for analog sources only. I just work around it by not using track lights when critically listening.

Can not get certain radio stations, when you turn yes


Hello, your solution is to simply upgrade the antenna. this is especially true if you are using the wire loop antenna that came with your unit.

Do a search for "Terk FM antenna" on ebay or amazon. They range anywhere from $20 to $100 depending on how strong you need it to be.

You can also check out radio shack or see what your local wal-ly world (walmart) has just remember you want an AMPLIFIED antenna

Hope that helps

Crest Audio CA 9 Static/Interference


hello

The humming sound that you have mentioned may be due to following reasons.

  • There may be some connector which is not connected properly. Check the connectors which connect the speakers to the audio system.
  • Any of the connector may be damaged. Again check the connectors.
  • Check your power supply.There may be some sparking or adapter not connected properly.
  • If these are not your solution then your connectors are damaged internally.
Hope this will solve your problem.

Thank you

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?


This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.

Lots of hum from both speakers


Well folks I solved my problem and the amp has never sounded better. It had always hummed and now it close to stone quiet. The secret was it really never a problem with the amp. The problem was the result of either the pre-amp, interconnect cables, or the combinations of them. The solution came when I added a "drain wire" or ground to the cable I was using. There must have been a ground loop or some in-balance that required a wire to be connected to the earth (-) side at the source on the interconnect and then left unconnected at the other or receiving end of the interconnect. Anyway, no more hum, and the solution took some spare wire and solder.

Radio channel coming through on cd zone


Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

I receive a radio channel in one of the outputs of the preamp


I would use sheilded wire on the mic with the least amount of cable. You can relocate the pre amp with aluminum foil wrapped around the pre amp. also turn the gain on the mic down as to eliminate any interference from your strong radio station nearby. Randy
