Question about Mackie Audio Players & Recorders
Hi there, I have had a pair of Mackie HD1521 for a few years now and at a party last weekend one of my speakers ceased to play - with the thermal like coming on. When I tested the speaker at home, I heard a pulsing sound beating through the speaker - but no music playing through. Also, when the speaker was switched off - the lights on the back stayed on for a good 15 - 20 seconds. Can anyone please help me diagnose this / recommend a solution? Thanks Steve

Liamog, i bought the exact same speakers and sound card, and i had the exact same problem as you. I tried for days to fix it and it turns out that its only a setting you have to enable in your sound card settigns. If you go into your EAX console for your creative sound card you will find a thing that sams CMSS 3D, and all you have to do is select the button that says Enable CMSS 3d surround. I hope this will fix your problem. Alex.

you have a poor connection somewhere in your signal path. This sort f problem could be anywhere from inside the speaker box to the output stages of the amp. speaker protection relay in the amp, or even a noisy vol control or dry solder joints in the output stages of the amp. eliminate anything external to the amp by swapping right for left and test, spray the speaker protection relay in the amp with 2-26 or burnish the contacts with a piece of white business card cut to fit into the contacts. You will see deposits on the card that you have cleaned from the contacts. Carefully inspect the soldering about the output stages(heatsink area) and re-solder any poor or cracked solder joints. Good luck... these are the most common problems. I can go further in if the problem remains after you have done this. Good luck
