Hi,

On teh back there's a mode switch, you can put this one on stereo. Then you have a normal stereo amp.

    Hi,



    You can take line-out or rec. out of your receiver and connect them to the amplifier. You can connect the left chan. to input 1 and the right channel to input 2 of the Inter-M. Then you can connect your speakers to the binding post outputs. So output 1 will be your left. chan. and output 2 your left channel.

    Please watch the inputs on the Inter-M, those are XLR connector's.

    If you are using them, then you have to have to solder the inner cable to point 2 and the shield on point 1. Then you have to make a link from point 1 to 3. That's the right way to connect a unbalanced pre-amplifier to a balanced amplifier.

    Maybe you can also use the jack inputs (if there are some on the amp).



    I hope my story is clear, if not, please let me know.



    Regards,

    Gerard

Fisher CA-885 Integrated Stereo Amplifier stuck in stand-by mode


Given the heat/cold cycles of the storage area along with humidity, I would first suspect poor solder connections. This is not unusual for units of this age. A general overhaul should restore this to operation. This should be a labor only repair unless the output STK is bad. These units are known for having poor connections at the voltage regulators which cause a DC voltage offset triggering the protection circuit. The overhaul should address this as well.

Keep us posted on your progress.

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...


Hi,

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,
Gerard

I have a carver M-2050i amp that I am putting in my truck. Want to hook it up mono to one of my 15" subs. Looking how to wire it for mono. do I use the L - and R - or L + and R+ or something else. I have...


to wire up your sub in mono bridged mode it's either L+ and R- or L- and R+ it should say this on the body of the amp in front of the speaker terminals. If it does'nt i would check to see if your amp is bridgeable if it is not i would advise against it as this could damage the amp.Hope this is helpful

3 8 ohm speakers 1 stereo amp 2channel a 1 channel b will this do dammage


If you only have 3 (8 Ohm) Speakers and want to hook them all up, you will need to balance the impedance of the sides or you will be too loud on one side and not loud enough on the other. This will cause your amp to work harder on one side. (Not Good)
I did not see the speaker A and B in the instruction manual.

Because of that, I will state the following.
I would not recommend that you hook up anything that is unbalanced. I would use just a pair in two channel mode (This would give you an 8 Ohm load on each output). The manufacture recommends a 4 Ohm load for the best output of this amp. But the most important thing to remember is that your speakers must be able to handle this much power or the speakers will be permanently damaged.
This amp has Protection to cover: Full short circuits, Open Circuits, Thermal and HF protection, and stable into reactive or mismatched loads.

You could hook up all three speakers and the amp will work, but, I would not recommend that type of hook-up.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Hooking up in Stereo


You'll need to use one of the four stereo inputs on the mixer and make sure you wire the speakers separately to channels one and two of the amplifiers. Assuming both of your amps are xti series amps, that's all you have to do.

Good Luck,

A home stereo system is not complete without an amplifier which drives the speakers. A preamp cannot drive a speaker. Try to read the labels at the back of the system...if it reads speaker then that is the amplifier output. Would you mind giving us what model is your system?

Proper mode settings


Hi bongodboss

The user manual for this amp has good instruction on how to connect it. You can download a copy from here.

Page 9 has info about using the amp for "bi-amping" The amp is only a stereo unit, so to do a 3-way system, you will need at least 1 amp mono in bridge mode for lows, and other stereo amp for mods, and another stereo amp for highs. You could use the internal low pass filter for the bottom end, and a 2 way crossover for the mids and highs. Much simpler doing a 2 way system with composite bins for mids and highs, and subs for lows. You only need the 2 amps and use the low and high pass filters inside the EP2500. If you need anymore help on this, I am happy to talk to you more.

Most amps will only power two sets of speakers direcrly hooked to amp (A&B). If you want audio throughout the house, I would recommend a PA system set up with individual room volume controls

Hooking up speakers to amp


YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.
