Question about Samson Live 612M 12" Powered Stage Monitor, 300 Watts

Open Question

Samson l612 I have two Live 612 main pa speakers. One unit does not have any high frequency output. The compression driver checks out ok. The other unit's power module will continually shut down and then open up and there is an audible clicking similar to a relay closing and opening. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

SOURCE: Hi, I have one Samson Auro

If you read the TRUE specs on this speaker it is really a 200 Watt RMS unit. Make sure you are using balanced lines to the speaker XLR or TRS cables. The mixer should NOT be a passive mixer as these do NOT generate true balanced lines. Make sure the mic can't "hear" the speaker or you may be getting supersonic feedback that is above your hearing range that saturates the amp. If *********** can't stand to be ain a 15 foot square room with teh level you are generating, it is TOO loud for this unit to handle.

I have a Peavey XR 8600 PA, I have tried adding an external vocal effects module into a mic line but it drops the output volume of the entire PA by about 75%. Any ideas why this is?


Well, I would say it isn't dropping the level of "the whole pa", it is just dropping the level of the input you have plugged the fx into. Check the settings on your fx unit, there are usually input, output and mix controls that are independant of "the pa" and affect the amplitude of the signal going into your mixer from the fx unit.

You have to double check the cable from Ipod to PA system. Most probably the audio out cable from ipod is not correclty fitting the output port of ipod.

A high pitched ringing through the PA associated with strumming


You are proabably getting regeneration. This is nothing more than feedback as these acoustic guitars are good microphones. Make sure the guitar CANNOT "hear" the speakers of the PA system. Crank the high frequency EQ for that channel all the way down. This is common when soundment decide they ALSO need to boost the high frequencies of the PA up when they shouldn't. Regeneration is a feedback that is below that to fully sustain, but will cause a ringing "tail" on notes.

I'm using the Peavey XR 8600 with two EV Force i 25 speakers. My question is this, what is the difference between the two outputs on the Peavey? I naturally assumed one was left and one was right....


DO NOT parallel more than two 8 ohm speakers on either output and you will be OK. You could also use one speaker on each output. That would be easier on the equipment as it would be an 8 ohm load on each instead of a 4 ohm load on one of the internal amps. If you want to drive stage minitors, then you existing setup is fine and you will connect the monitors to the second speaker output and set the Mon switch as MAIN/MON.

Power dont *** on


It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.

When I connect my cables from the TRS outputs to my direct-field monitors, the latter seem to be unbalanced: one monitor plays more higher frequencies than the other


Plug in one a at time using the same input. Take the left speaker and the left input wire. Plug the wire from the mixer into the one speaker if it sounds ok then unplug the speaker and replace it with the right speaker. If it sounds ok replace the wire with the right wire. This will tell you that each speaker is working and each cable is working. If you switch speakers and they sound different then the possibility of a blown high end driver in one. If they sound ok each by it self but the high end suffers when they are both hooked up then the possibility of the speakers might be. Not sure what the sub has to do with the whold setup. Any further questions call me at the store.

Testing the driver with an ohmmeter is incomplete test. Sometimes the magnets break off the drivers rendering no sound. Sometimes the voice coil shorts and if you don't interpret the ohmmeter readings correctly you can overlook a faulty driver. Remove the horn and look for damage such as lost magnet from the back. Also the peavey cabs have a protection circuit so if you did not try another speaker to the same wores going to the driver, it may be the Polyfuse on the protection circuit or other components.

Titanium high frequency drivers not working. Is there a fuse in crossover?


i) I believe you can access the fuse by removing the Input Jack Panel.

ii) If fuse is OK, then unscrew the horn unit, take off one speaker wire & measure resistance. If it is open circuit then you can order a replacement horn diaphragm (if you feel confident to fit it to the horn).

When we are trying to get a reasonable level of sound for vocals before it gets loud enough to be able to hear clearly with the band playing it starts to clip at the speakers now we are only using this set...


Proper level setting of the mixer is important. HOWEVER if the clipping is occuring at the speakers the only possible problem MIGHT be that you have a supersonic feedback that is saturating the speakers above your hearing range, Be sure you don't boost the highs too much with the EQ as this can cause the feedback that you can't hear. Also make sure that you power the speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer, even if it means running an extension cord to bring power to the mixer. This is to avoid a low frequency hum and common mode distortion/damage. A low frequency hum could cause the clipping.
It would be a good idea to get a sound meter to check the sound level. You should be able to reach 85 Db from this system without clipping. If you need more than that, you MAY need more speakers if the band instruments are too loud. Also if the band has amps that get into the vocal microphones that adds to the clipping level... make sure the mics don't "hear" the band instruments. Make sure your speakers are toward the audience from the mics to avoid the supersonic feedback problem. If the vocalists can't hear themselves with that configuration you need to set up seperate stage monitors.

There are some pretty good videos on YouTube about proper mixer level setup.

How do I attach power amp to 1832 mixer


There are a number of configurations for a mixer like the 1832, the most common are PA system and Recording system. There are Main output jacks which carry the mix as summed in the main faders. These in a PA system would feed the pa amplifiers which drive the house speaker system for the audience. These connectors are XLR 3 pin type on the rear, intended for professional pa amplifiers which use balanced +4dbv line input level. Amplifier which have 3 pin XLR connectors for input signals can accept that high level signal. For home style HiFi amplifiers, the signal level is nominally -10DBv and balanced or unbalanced signal lines with 1/4in diameter phone plugs which are connected to the mixer by way of a second set of Main output connectors which are 1/4in phone jacks. Use whichever amplifier input level your amp has.
If you are not using it as a main PA house mixer, but using it for recording, the main output connectors go to a 2 channel recorder or computer sound card recorder. The power amp and your monitor speakers are connected to the connectors labeled "Control Room" (CTRL Rm). These output are useful for recording because the signal through the mixer can be monitored from several buses, Solo, main mix, selected by buttons provided. The buttons only affect the signal heard through the control room monitors, and not the main output which only sees the main mix so selecting "solo" does not interrupt the signal going to the recorder while the engineer in the control can be checking other signal paths through the board.
