Re: bx8 monitors problems

You will need to REPLACE THE WOOFER / DRIVER on this unit. Cost for a new driver is about $80.

Make the sure the cables are connected properly to the monitors, as in Left Positive to Left Positive, Left Negative to Left Negative on both ends of the cable. Having one polarity switched can burn out your speaker and internal electronics.... I'm speaking from experience. When you burn up a $400 speaker by incorrectly connecting them... it's a big OOPS that makes you feel pretty dumb. Even as a professional A/V guy, it happens.... and sucks. If this doesn't fix the problem, contact Yamaha or an authorized dealer about it. Could be bad electronics internally, but my guess is it's the cables being improperly connected.

I have been using 901 speakers and eq with onkyo tx-8522 av. but now when i turn on tape 2 monitor on, the sound become very weak, even i turn the volume to the max. when i turn off tape 2, the sound come...

Qualifier: I have 901's in a 7.1 setup and have written many posts on Fixya regarding how to do it right.


ONLY now it does that? "VERY WEAK" as in attentuated somewhat or is it signal leakage, effectively silence? How is the EQ wired in? Check its own Tape Monitor button.

If you DO NOT have a separate amplifier for the 901's the EQ will affect EVERY speaker and we know that is NOT desired.

If the EQ is in a Tape Loop of a modern AVR and you activate the loop two things will happen: 1) the 901's will sound better and the rest of the speakers will be at risk from excessive amplitude at the extremes; 2) any digital source will be disabled.

My Tannoy 6d monitor doesn't produce any sound

Hiya, i assume for now that you mean the 16dip switch. If i remember correctly it is solder directly to board (could be wrong). If you are comfortable with doing this, it will need to be opened and resoldered probably for dry joints. If not then suggest hunting out a friend with some solder experience. A word of caution though, shorting out solder tracks etc could result in damage so only do it if you are comfortable. If the dry joints are really bad (sound like they are) you should be able to see them clearly and resolder (look for not so bright and shiny solder that looks cracked. Magnifier helps)

Hope that helps

No sound from M-audio BX5a monitor

I have a pair of BX5a monitors hooked up to a video editing suite. One of the monitors is off. They are powered to a working electrical supply. They are driven off a Mackie DFX-6 with a 1/4" unbalanced connection. No blue light on the monitor, no sound or hissing on that...

M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse

If your monitor is crackling and fizzing, that is not a fuse issue, unless the fuse you have installed is underrated. It sounds like you have a bad driver/woofer, and need to get it replaced. CLICK HERE FOR THE REPLACEMENT DRIVER for this model.
