My LSR 2325 speaker rattles

I have a pair of LSR 2325 monitors in my control room, and one of the monitors suddenly developed a rattle / buzz on low frequencies. As a bit more info, If I play nearly any note on the low E-string through the monitors at a reasonable volume, the rattle / buzz is persistent until the source volume decreases below a certain level, then the buzz disappears and the monitor performs as usual. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: I have just bought a

1000 Watts? Well, those are peak values. !000 watts RMS into a 12 inch speaker and it would smoke... this is some of our inflated advertising. But that is beside rhe point... now on to your problem: What you are having is a ground loop. You may have to do more than one thing to correct this here is the things to do in the order to do them to solve the problem:

1. Connect the piano and the speaker to the SAME power source or receptacle, even if you have to run an extension cord, three wire of course. Plug all of this ONLY into a grounded outlet, if your house has only two wire plugs, then you need to get an electrician to install a grounded receptacle.

2. Use Balanced lines. This means XLR or TRS balanced cables between the piano and the speaker. Use the 1/4 inch jacks output, not the RCA ones.

3. Since the AUX outputs do not support balanced lines, the next step require you use DI box. They are about $20 from Guitar Center and others. With very short 1/4 inch mono cable connect the piano to the DI box from the L/R mono piano to the high impedance input port of the DI and set the ground lift switch to "LIFT". Use an XLR to XLR cable from the DI box to the speaker. This last step if needed is the last thing in our bag of tricks to break the ground loop that can cause the buzz. Dirty power, if you have lamp dimmers can be a source of the noise.

Woofer rattles at low volume...when i turn it up it sounds pretty good...still has bass and highs


May be a couple of things; The first is a resonance in the cabinet, which may not be noticeable at high volumes. If the speaker cabinet was ever dropped,or got cracked from dropping , dry weather,or whatever, there may be certain frequencies that make the cabinet rattle. Try holding the cabinet when it rattles and look for anything loose,from a side wall to a loose foot, or the speaker itself. Tighten up loose items and seal any gaps or cracks On the cabinet.
The other problem could be a partially blown speaker. Test by lightly pushing in on the outsides of the speaker to see if it moves in and out freely. If there is a scratching sound, or it drags slightly , it might be blown. Also,the dust cap or another part of the speaker may be loose. Check that, and reseal if loose. Replace or have reconed if blown.

Yes, but you need to replace the entire speaker. The 1505 and 1508 use a different magnet though they look similar..

you can either drop out the woofer by removing the screws holding it in or remove the back panel ( #2 phillips screwdriver ) those are the easiest ways into the cabinet.

The noise MIGHT be a resonance in the cabinet. The way to find out is to sweep a frequency upward to see if something rattles at certain frequencies... Don't be surprised to find several. Within the cabinet are the usual culprits: Wires rattling against the cabinet, loose debris, grilles and the logos on them, circuit boards with crossover hardware, cabinet wood that is not glued and rattles against itself. Things like bass port tubes can rattle.
Find an audio generator and sweep the cabinet from 50Hz to 10KHz and you will be surprised. Some speakers may have resonances as well. Expect things in your room to start rattling as well.
This is really the only way to find the problem. PLEASE wear hearing protectors at levels above 90Db.

I have noticed a buzzing sound generated from the amplifier when I play my low e string


Several possibilities come to mind:

The speaker is driven too far mechanically causing the voice coil to go into a non-linear region.

The cabinet, stuff inside, grille cloth, or even a logo on the cabinet is resonant and rattles.

You are "flatopping" which means the amps are saturating at the two extremes of voltage output. The speaker cone goes to the extremes and can't go any farther and the cone will rattle at each end of its excursion. I would reduce the bass so you don't get into this situation lest you damage the amp and or speakers. They probably have an indicator that you have reached this clipping level... it is a warning... best to heed it... amps and repairs are expensive.

I've got a Behringer Ultrabass Bb410 1200w 4x10 Bass Cabinet in which 2 of the speakers rattle. I know the speakers have been removed and rewired. How can I get an internal wiring diagram to check...


The cabinet is listed as a 4 ohm unit.

We would exoect to see four, 4 ohm speakers in series parallel or four 16 ohm speakers in parallel.

If teh unit seems to rattle, first put an audio oscillator into it and sweep the frequency. It is common for grilles and also logos attached to them to rattle.

Open the unit and power each speaker the same way individually for a test.

I suspect you will find either the grille or mounting hardware is actually doing the rattling OR possibly the wires inside are vibrating.

If the sound is a scratchy buzz, then the speaker(s) have probably had voicecoils damaged by overheating.

In this case, buy 4 new speakers and replace all. It is not likely to find replacements for the Buggera brand they put in these cabinets. Also the word on the web about that brand of speaker is not very good.
