Are you sending the main mix to the monitors or are you giving them their own mix? What about using the sub groups, use 1 for your monitor send.

Hi there. Search "top hat". There are 2 different depths. Compare measurements to space available in and on the enclosure where you plan to install it. (bottom)
Thanks

SOURCE: stand for Mackie MR5

My best advice to you is to get your stands where I get mine - on eBay. They usually have a great selection of stands, tripods (although I personally would not put my nice Mackie reference monitors on tripods - too unstable).

Also, you will most likely find them for quite a lot less on eBay.

However, I believe Musiciansfriend.com (my favorite web site) may be having a fall sale very soon, or end of summer sale, and they have been known to reduce their prices heavily on things like stands, sound reinforcement, and other accessories during a big sale.

If FixYa sold such things, I wouldn't be sending you anywhere off site, but since you cant get them through us, I am giving you my absolute number 1 and number 2 choices that should solve your problem well.

If looking on eBay, be sure to measure your monitors, or get the information from the literature that came with the monitors. It's bit easier on Musiciansfriend.com, and here is a link to the stands they havce available there:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=monitor+stand

Another option is monitor wall mounts, as we have to two of four reference monitors in our home studio wall-mounted, and it's great getting them out of the way and not taking up floor space or valuable desk space.

I hope whatever decision you make will be one you are happy with.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: What type of fuse would you use for Mackie tweeter?

I would contact Mackie and see what they say. The MR5 is already protected internally by the built in amplifier circuitry as far as I know.They can be reached here:http://www.mackie.com/support/index.html

SOURCE: I have Mackie SRM450v2 speakers,

Chances are if the fuse has blown, there are failed electronic components that caused the failure.

Here is a service manual that will be CLOSE to your unit, though not exact:

http://elektrotanya.com/mackie_srm450_active_speaker.rar/download.html

Scroll down to the "Get Manual" on the site and click on the link. The file is compressed. The first part is the schematic, the second the assembly and parts list. Likely the main low freq power amp has shorted transistors.

I have a set of peavey pv215s. One will not get as loud now and has a slight muffled tone to it. I have tried all the easy obvious stuff. I am positive it the speaker. Blown fuse? Something else?


You might try checking the capacitors and inductors wired inside. A blown cap is usually obvious, the inductor might be less so. But it shouldn't be too hard or costly to replace either. I don't have experience with this brand of speakers (or large high end speakers in general) but unless there is mechanical damage to some speaker component like the coil or cone, the electronics might be the next thing to check.

One speaker stopped playing bass


Sound like either the crossover or the driver has blown or, if you're lucky there is a loose connection internally if you have only checked external connections.

Do i have the right fuse


This speaker at full power draws average 1.3A at 230V and 2.5A at 120V. Mackie's recommended fuses are in line with this so your fuse is actually too high a rating. It is possible you are using cheap fast blow fuses or are over-driving the speaker (which should cause the fuse to blow) These speakers are only capable of 118db sustained (@1M) so cannot be expected to cope with anything but small venues or gentle music.

Have a hartke lh1000 head . played about 5 total hours then blew the fuse. is this something i shoud be worried about?


If the fuse is correct ( check manual) it shouldn't blow under normal operation. Once in while a fuse will break internally and thus blow the fuse. look close at the blown fuse If it is a "violent" blow (totally black inside) then you have an overload condition. I would use an ohm meter to check the connection to the speakers. Usually it should be between 8 ohms and 4 ohms if the number is lower than 4 ohms your speakers or wiring are putting to much of a load on the amp. If the fuse was not a "violent" blown fuse then replace with a new fuse of the exact proper value. many amps use an MDL fuse that is a slow blow fuse and has much different in circuit function than a ACG fuse so use only the exact proper furse that the manufacture recomends. If the load (speaker and wiring) is correct and the fuse is correct and still blows then you have a component problem and the amp will need repair

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.

The power amp section has blown parts. You will likely find they use a chip like the TDA7293 as the power amp output and it will be blown, shorted causing the fuse to blow. These cost $6 from Digikey.com. Find a competent tech to replace it and use heat sink compound. Verify the part before ordering one. They come with leads bent either way so make sure you get the one with a matching suffix letter. When firing up after repair, put a 60 watt light bulb in series with the hot power lead to act as a current limiter... saves blowing fuses if there is another problem.

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.

How do i hook up my mackie mr5 speakers to my interface? Should i plug the cables in the trs (balanced ) section at the back of the speakers


yes - trs or xlr inputs will give you the same result, as long as you use the correct cables.

Make sure the mackies are off when you plug them in or you'll get a nasty thump. Equally, make sure the volume is down on your interface initially.

Hi ther the fuse has blown on the speaker out circet on my new amp any ideas why this would happen?


The fuse blew because of excess current. The cause of the excess current is either excess volume, a short in the speaker, OR the amp has failed and is shorted to one of the power rails internally and is driving DC current out.

Replace the fuse and use a meter to check the output voltage with NO speaker connected. It should be under 1/2 volt period. If it is, then check the resistance of the speaker. The DC resistance should be a little less than the rated impedance. Otherwise if the amp is kicking out a higher voltage or blows the fuse again, have the amp repaired.
