Question about Mackie SRM450V2 POWERED SPEAKER

1 Answer

My speaker sounds like it is blown

This is a self-powered with a 12" speaker and a twitter. I have this speaker for 2 years and use it with a small Mackie mixer. Now is just making ugly noise when I play music. What are the chances that replacing the 12" speaker will fix the problem? I learned that the V1 version could be reconed but this V2 version cannot.

Take it to a Sound Production company and ask their opinion. If they use Mackie gear-even better. They will better be able to tell you what's goin' on if they hear the speaker. Good luck.

SOURCE: No volume control with 2 faders on Mackie CR1604 mixer

If all other functions work for those channels, the most likely problem is the fader itself. These can fail and operate more like switches rather than faders. Without witnessing the behavior, I can not state that for sure. While these mixers are not the hardest to work on, they are time consuming. The faders can be purchased from Mackie directly. If you need to have this repaired, any shop that repairs audio gear should be able to erpair this for you. Where are you located?

Yes, there are chips in the unit and any COMPETENT tech should be able to repair.

Since both the XLR and the jack are bad, this implies something more.

USUALLY Mackie drives the XLR and the unbalanced jack seperately so the problem would be what drives the unbalanced jack.

CHECK if you have output at the UTILITY left output jack. If you do, the driver chip for the left output main is the problem.

If you don't, the problem may back up farther into the EQ.

A LOT of troubleshooting can be done on these by using the block diagram in your manual showing signal paths.

If the hum is observable in headphones, then it is likely a power supply problem, usually a dried out electrolytic filter capacitor.

SOURCE: How do I replace the fuse on a Mackie SRM 350 v2?

The fuse is inside and is to be replaced ONLY after you repair the cause of it blowing. Additional damage may result if repair is not made first. Power it up with a 150 watt light in series with the power cord as a resetting fuse. When light remains out, unit should be good.

The fuse is mounted on a circuit board behind the power input connector.

Here is a link to a service manual that is probably close to your unit:

Scroll down at the web page to a small link that says "Get Manual" Click on that and after download unzip the file... it is free... ignore the winrar thing...

What causes buzzing in speakers?


There are many causes of buzz, so it should be checked step by step :
- Bad connection on the input connector, or cord.
- Amplifier, basically have the block diagram like this:
25850676-l1qpqmriditabltrjczr2eku-5-0.jpg If in one block damage, buzz can be heard.In the amplifier.
Generally occurs in the PSU and / or power amplifiers.
Fix it to the experts,because it requires a good knowledge of electronics.
Blown speaker cone, does not cause a buzz.
Short circuit along the wires supplying the audio, it will not cause any sound in the speakers, including the sound of music.
Try also, disconnect the input connector, whether the buzz is still audible. If after the input connector is removed, the buzz disappears, the possibility of buzz came from another device before the amplifier.

Peavey problems


I assume you mean the Pr-12RX passive? That seems wrong to me, too. Put an ohm meter across the terminals of the horn driver and the woofer seperatly to see which, if either, is blown. If they're OK, look for a bad solder joint on the crossover.

Can I connect a Soundcraft Efx12 to a speaker without using an amplifier?


Yes, but it could be pointless.
Headphones are just small speakers so it is usually possible to drive a small pair of "computer/iPod" type speakers from the headphone output.
True balanced outputs should have a fair amount of drive so try connecting a speaker between pins 2 and 3. The higher the impedance of the speakers the better.
Ultimately, the results will be very quiet and the cost of a small amp or powered speakers for low level use is quite reasonable.

Hi there.You may have a blown fuse.Unplug the amp then undo the screws that hold it all together.Remove the wires off the speaker and put an AA battery across the speaker connections(of the speaker).You will hear a clicking sound if the speaker is ok.If not then the speaker is blown.This could also damage the circuitry.Check the fuse(s) and replace with exactly the same rating.Assemble and test if still no go then the circuitry is faulty.You could then take it to a repair shop and ask for a quote to repair it.
It might be cheaper to buy a new unit.

Another person posting on here I suggested opening his unit and he had blown speakers. I think these that are DOA after previous use may be blown during the previous shutdown of the amp driving them and those with built in amps are blown when mixer is powered down putting out a large pulse. Hopefull the amp is blown rather than the speakers... cheaper to repair. Open and check for a fuse, but dont' replace it until you find out the cause of it blowing as additional damage can occur.

Cease using the mixer until it is repaired. One or both of the amps have blown. Further use MAY result in power supply damage. 1 to 6 switching power transistors will have blown and often a Zener diode or two. If the metering resistors smoked, there will be two small surface mounted transistors per channel blown wide open as well. These are all in the HCA2400 amplifier module.

Plug your keyboard into a line input. Run a cable from the stereo out put jack into a separate amplifier with a speaker e.g. a self contained powered monitor.
