Likely you haven't got the levels set properly. Start with the trim controls (head end gain) Make sure you are not clipping there. Also verify you aren't overdriving your amps. Remember that the outs are line level, not mic level so the gain oof following equipment needs to be set for line level.
ALWAYS USE balanced audio line from this unit... either XLR or TRS type cables. ALWAYS power ALL interconnected equipment from teh same receptacle or source to avoid ground bounce damage to circuitry. You don't say what you are using to record with. Make sure it has balanced inputs. For instance, connecting cables from this to the audio input jack of a PC which is unbalanced would be a disaster in audio quality. There would be a problem of levels and the unbalanced thing... You haven't given us enough information of your hardware configuration to analyze the problem more than what I have said here.

Check the settings in your computer in the control panel "sounds and devices" under the "Voice" and "Audio" tabs. Check that all are set to the Mackie instead of the computers default input.

Just use balanced audio interconnect cables (XLR or TRS) between the mixer and the M-Audio interface.

Hi my mackie thumps 100 watt aren't delivering a decent volume ,,I,m using mackie mixer please help


Is this a new problem? In other words, was it working correctly at some point?
You ned to isolate the problem. Plug a different source into the speakers and plug the mixer into a different amp/speaker. See which part isn't working correctly.. Either way, it's likely you need to take the part that's not working to the shop. You can contact Mackie to find the nearest service center. Service Locator Mackie

Hi there, my relatively new Mackie Thump wont power up despite being plugged in / on etc. When I do with it on all i hear is a very low pop sound every 5 to 10 seconds or so


Your best bet is to contact Mackie Tech Support. Here is a link to their Suppot page. Mackie Tech Support
it's likely it needs to go to a repair shop. Here is a link to their service center finder. Mackie Service Center Locater

No problem. just bought it and a pair of thump 15s what cables are best. and we want to play our accoustic gigs through this and dont know how to set eq i know its different each room but a starting point.


Use balanced lines for the audio interconnects. Use XLR low noise mic cables or TRS type cables. IMPORTANT: Power the speakers and the mixer from the SAME receptacle, even if it means running extension cords. Ground bounce in building wiring can destroy the circuits in the equipment.
