Question about Samson Resolv 65a Main / Stereo Speaker

2 Answers

No highs in one speaker and no lows in another

I bought the samnson db 300a about 2 months ago for a small karaoke gig. just 2 days ago I lost bass in one and all the highs in the other. I checked my power sources and they were fine. I am afraid to open the back as I am not that versed in pro audio or electrical.
Thanks in advance

Hi Rob,

I would like to inform you that the problem might be with the karaoke gig. To isolate this issue connect the speakers to another system and check the functionality.

If the problem still persists I suggest you to contact the samson for replacement as you have the warranty period. Just provide them serial number and proof of purchase, let them isolate the cause after all these they will replace the unit for you. Please do not experiment on the product.

Hi there,

There is no problem to open and check it, but better if you go for a warranty (coz. it's new speaker).

I would say, that it probably needs a new 9V battery. It had some time to gain some juice after the gig. If a fresh one doesn't help, then the problem could've been the equipment or power outlet distribution at the gig site.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer

Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

It has something loose on the board or where the speaker wires connect. Combo amps are really bad about doing this. The vibrations from the speakers loosen the components on the board.

Is the bass boost the gain or frequency knob?

Bass boost simply adds DB or gain to the bass signal. Some like it, some dont.
The frequency knob is the Low Pass Filter (LPF) that cuts off the amp output above
the set frequency. A bass system usually cuts off below 400 HZ and more often 200HZ.
A good, rattle your car bass note is in the 25-80HZ range or lower but most amps and audio
input devices cant attain a good low note with clarity.
"Low-pass filter allows only frequencies below the crossover point to be amplified. A high-pass filter allows only frequencies above the crossover point to be amplified - useful for keeping low bass away from small speakers, so they can play more efficiently."

Clearly, it thinks you're overdriving it.

Blinking Power Indicator every 2 seconds means the internal temperature is high. (Page 76 of the manual)

Every half-second - speaker impedance too low.

Consider the load presented by the speakers and what their minimum impedance might be.

Check for loose speaker wires.

How much air space is need for a sealed encloser

are you sharing the air space or building a divider to give each driver its own air space

these speakers or not made for low end bass these woofer are meant for mid bass high bass
  • 6.5'' High Power Subwoofer
  • Non-Press paper Cone
  • Specially Treated Foam Edge Suspension
  • 1.5'' High Temperature Aluminum Voice Coil
  • Magnet Weight: 40 Oz
  • Impedance: 4 Ohm
  • Fs: 80Hz, Qms: 4.05, Qes: 1.3, Qts: 1.2, SPL: 87(dB), Vas: 6.8(Cuft)
  • Mounting Depth: 3"
  • Rubber magnet Boot Cover fers are
  • there is only 3 " of mounting depth needed i would build you door pannel out fiberglass a door pod and mount them on the door if you have a factory speaker there . then run to the amp and turn the x-over on to high pass and them use them as a mid bass driver up front for the front sound stage for get about them as a subwoofer get the lanzar 10's or 12's

    i mounted a set of ma audio 8" subs on my 03 s-10 door the speaker fit in the 6.5 location had to trime the door metal and space them out a little cause the 4.75 mounting worked and then i ran the them in 2 ohm stereo to my 4 channel amp and used the high pass crossover to run them as a mid bass driver works great for me . ma audio 500 watt dual 4 ohms 8" subs each i had 250watts to each sub.

    you could build a small enclosure just big enough to fit the 6.5 woofer you could build a dual camber enclosure like 8wx5dx8h internale air space would be 0.18

    15 wx5dx8h would give you 0.347 share the air space this is internal air space
