I have the schematics. Any suggestions whats causing the noise?

I would also be inclined to check all the larger electrolytic capacitors in the power circuits as well for AC bleed.

After hooking up the PA for practice, I heard a loud "pop," then followed by a burn smell, from my Mackie SRM 450 speaker, which I use as a monitor. No sound comes through but static and crackling. Is the...


The pop itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, but a burn smell and the fact that it's only outputting a crackle likely means that the built-in amplifier circuitry has been overloaded. This can happen a few ways:
1) Faulty power, either a bad cord or a bad outlet
2) Plugging the output of a power amplifier into this speaker - because it has a built in amplifier, this speaker only wants a non-powered line input
3) If the Thru output is (accidentally) plugged into anything that provides phantom power, that could overload the circuitry.
4) A short due to liquid or moisture contact - these cabinets are most certainly not waterproof
In any case, the amplifier part of the circuitry IS replaceable. If you're not comfortable buying one and replacing it yourself (I'd recommend eBay), take it to any shop that sells similar items. If you're extremely lucky, it was just a fuse that needs to be replaced, but chances are you'll need to replace the whole amp.

I left my fender frontman 65r on for over a year and yesterday a gentle hum for a few seconds then a loud hum for a few seconds more then no more power to the unit. I opened it and troubleshooted it around...


Why was it on for over a year :D Has anyone replaced the fuse? In the service manual I found it has to be only 2 Amps! Okay let's solve the problem. The power transformer was overloaded which caused the broken winding. It is still overloaded what can be heard by the hum sound. First thought was to check main capacitors or better just replace them! If the hum gets louder, they might also become warm. Check voltages after bridge rectifier and smoothing circuit. They should be +/-42 V (TP3, TP4) and +/- 16 V (TP5, TP6) Let me know which of them is faulty Cheers

Likelly the TDA7293 chip in the power amp has failed. It shorts to one power rail and drags the power down where it hums... this CAN damage the speaker if left on. Verify the problem and replace the chip. Slight chance there are bad electrolytic filter caps but those are easily spotted.

A large amp like this likely has protection circuit (probably a relay) that doesn't connect the speakers until the amp is stable and balanced. You relly need the schematics for the amp.

Useing a Peavey XR 800F Powered PA Mixer/Amp which develops distortion on output after around 60 minutes. Also had gear linked to all inputs at the time, three mics, 2 guitars and keyboard. Any ideas...


First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

Aux1 and 2 are not working...what is the fix on the emx5016cf yamaha board


You are NOT trying to drive speakers from the aux outputs are you? These are LINE outputs that should be using TRS balanced lines to either powered speakers or amplifiers. Often these are used for monitors. The monitoors MUST be powered versions or use external amplifier if the speakers are passive..

How do I hook up two powered 15's and two passive 15's to this mixer(1202-VLZ3)?


You connect the powered 15's using balanced cables. The passive speakers you will have to get an amplifier for as the mixer does NOT have a powered output, only line-level audio outputs.
The powered speakers MAY have audio line level outputs to continue to other powered speakers or, as in your case, external amplifiers to drive your passive speakers.
Remember to power ALL interconnected equipment from the same receptacle or source to avoid ground bounce faults that can destroy sensitive circuits in your equipment.
