Cleaning may be an issue, maybe try putting something under it to air can get to the bottom. I've had to do that with my mixer.

SOURCE: hooking up powerd monitors to a Mackie 1604 VLZ3

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.

SOURCE: wirings connections from mixer to equalizer to

The connections can be accomplished in 2 ways: Direct or using insert cables. The most common way is directly as follows:

Mixer L/R ===> EQ Input L/R ==> Amp Input L/R ==> Speakers L/R

Using insert cables you would have a single 1/4" connector at the mixer end (inserted in to the "insert" L or R) and the other end into the EQ. If you need more details about this method, please post the model of the EQ so I can determine the type of insert cable required.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No sound

Your power amp should be connected to MAIN OUT left and right. NOT the MAIN "in".

The CD is connected correctely as you described. Make sure the CD has a line level output to match the input expected by the mixer.
Note:Walkman style CD players require a special cable to go between 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA plugs.

You have to advance the MAIN fader.

You should be using TRS interconnect cables from the mixer to your amps OR using XLR cables.

SOURCE: How can I connect my mackie mixer 1202-vlz3 to my

use the xlr (3 prong) main left and right outputs of the board. get xlr to 1/4 inch cables. one end will be 3 prong, to plug into the mixer, then the other end will be a mono 1/4 inch plug, like a big headphone plug. Then you have to get a dual mono 1/4 inch to stereo 1/8 inch adapter and plug it noto the line in. if there is no lone in, but a microphone jack instead, you will get a mono signal instead of a stereo signal. in this case, just use 1 channel of the mixer, instead of both of the stereo outs, and use a single mono 1/4 inch to mono 1/8 inch adapter.

the xlr to 1/4 inch cables can be purchased at a music store. the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapters will probably need to be purchased at radio shack.

My laptop is feeding through my Xenyx 1622fx mixer and output to my Mackie SRM450's. Getting the 'hum' which is a fuzzy noise. Is this solved with ground loop box?


Try hooking your mixer up to your Mackies without the laptop. Does the hum go away? Try hooking your laptop output up to the Mackies without the mixer. Does the hum go away? Make sure that all your power cables run from the same outlet and have the ground or third pin intact on the plug. Also make sure that you are using shielded cables for any connection that carries an audio signal. This includes the cables going to your Mackies as they are powered amplified monitors. Make sure that the cables to your Mackies are balanced and haven't been altered to unbalanced. You will need to use unbalanced cables from your laptop unfortunately but try to find ones with a shield and three conductors ( right and left signals and a common or ground) that have a separate shield from the common. The shield should only be connected to common at the output of the device where the signal starts. A better explanation is at these links:http://www.epanorama.net/documents/groundloop/ also http://www.epanorama.net/documents/groundloop/cable_shielding.html
