So when you aren't using the sub woofer there's not enough bass, so you need more out of the other speakers. Chances are the front speakers are set to "small" in the receivers menu, change it to "large"if your front speakers have a 6 inch woofer or larger. Note: If you leave the sub on, the input signal to it will be greatly reduced when the speakers are set to "large". Hope this helps.

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

I Have a buzzing mordaunt short avant 916i cone


Hiya, its the cone. The former is touching the magnet inside. Realignment is really tricky and dont know many people who can do that so you may either have to live with it or see if someone can recone it in your area.

Best of luck

My mordaunt-short avant 908i front left speaker aluminum tweeter stopped working... no sound coming out, however two midrange speakers functioning just fine.


I had similar problems my tweeter was blowen and it had to be replaced... I actually blew the speaker many times using a NAD amp as there were spikes coming from the amp. I changed the amp to a Marantz PM7200 and have had no problems since.

Mordaunt Short Avant 309i subwoofer set-up


Lots of ways. To set it up properly you will need a decibel meter, Radio Shack makes a nice one. With the meter volume can easily be set as well as phase. I'm assuming frequency is the crossover frequency, generally set at 80Hz. This one involves some trial and error as I am not familiar with your speakers. Don't know much about the notch filter. A good resource for setting up subs can be found at: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/bfd-rew-forum/index3.html

No Power - LED not lit.


Open up the back of your gale 3080 and check the 2 fuses situated near the transformer.They look like 2 silver cylindrical shapes.Check that they have not blown if they have the will cost you around £2 to replace.Better than the 50 quid you will pay when you take it to your hi fi dealer to open up the back of it.
