Speaker humms only. what causes that?


Incorrect connections or volume settings.

• In powering up, mixer first then amp

• In turning off , amp first then mixer


If hum still persist, without the mixer connected

then speaker amp may need servicing.

Something blew-up in the speaker cabinet. it turns out it's the protective lamp overload. May I know if you carry that? Thank you


Usually that lamp part ONLY protects the tweeter. If the woofer doesn't generate sound, then you probably blew the speaker as well. This speaker is rated at 250 Watts PROGRAM... that means your amp you drive this with should be no bigger than about 150 Watts RMS or you can blow the speaker. You should be able to get reasonable sound for a 20 foot square room with this unit.

Hi, I have one Samson Auro d412a active speaker plugged into the output channel of a 12 channel passive mixing board. When I sing into the mic, the speaker shuts down and the red light on the back...


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.

After working great for over a year my speaker seems to only have treble with no base. Not sure what to do


This is a bi-amped speaker. That means it has a separate power amplifier driving the bass woofer and treble horn. They have a low-level electronic crossover to separate the frequencies to the appropriate speaker. The electronic crossover is the least likely to fail... so you need to do a test:
You will need to open the unit and using an ohmmeter check if the woofer speaker voice coil is open or has continuity...It should be around 6 to 16 ohms. If it is above that, the speaker itself is blown and will have to be replaced. If the speaker has continuity, then the bass amp has failed and will require repairing by person that is adept at electronic repair. Before opening the unit you MIGHT be able to diagnose whether the speaker itself is blown by seeing if the woofer generates a thump when power is turned on or off. If it does, then likely the speaker is OK and the problem is the amp, otherwise the tests above need to be done. Usually these plastic cabinets are held together with seveal scrwes from the back. Some are in :deep "wells" and will require a very long shaft phillips screwdriver... and they often are long screws that wear one out unscrewing them. A genlte pry after removing the screws will separate the back and the front.

Played samson 412 aura speakers for about 6 hours today with the volume at 1/4 of the way turned up.. the speakers became very hot and turned off by them selves.. I have them mounted on stands in a corner...


The volume setting on the speakers has LITTLE to do with how hard you are driving them. Your source might be extra hot and overdriving them. Read the specs on the speakers and use a sound meter to check your level. The speakers, being only 12 inch, should fill a room 20 foot by 20 foot to about 95 to 100 Db which you are only allowed 2 hours in MAX to prevent hearing loss. At 6 hours you should keep it down to 85 Db SPL. I know several deaf musicians that were exposed to high sound levels in rock bands... a deaf musician is kind of washed up.

What do I need to hook up to our church pa system


Connection all depends on what type PA system you have. Here are the rules: Power this device from the SAME receptacle your mixer is powered by, even if it means running an extension cord. Use ONLY a balanced line from the mixer... either TRS cable or XLR cable.

Hey, i bought a new pair of samson auro D415 speakers and i connect them in parallel because one of my main mixer outputs ain't working.but even if al my signal gains and fader levels are low,the peak...


Check only one active speaker at the mixer output and report the results.
Connect only one of the audio inputs from the power amp at the mixer output (and the passive speakers at the output) and report the results.
Sometimes (in parallel connections) there are interferences from the volume controls.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

HOW DO YOU TURN DOWN THE HISSING NOISE


You can cut the treble gain some BUT most importantly is to send adequate signal to this speaker so volume level does not have to be set high when sending LINE LEVEL signals to it. Hissing noise is a product of the statistical noise that occurs in electronics. Running any device at high gain invariably brings up the hiss level. Managing thee signal levels is the responsibility of the sound engineer.

ALSO feed ALL interconnected equipment from the same receptacle or power source, even if it means running a power cable to a mixer alongside the snake. ALWAYS USE BALANCED audio cables whenever possible.
