Question about Mackie SRM-450 System

1 Answer

Reason and fix for distorted sound?

SRM450 V2 - at low signal level, no sound is produced, then after passing a certain threshold sound does come out but is very distorted. Speaker cone is moving smoothly, looked at the amp board and there's no obvious sign of physical damage.

Your amplifier circuit is in serious need of repair. If both amps are responding the same, then the likelihood of two separate amps going bad at same time is remote. Look at something they both share in common such as the power supply. If you do not feed the amp the correct "juice" it is not going to do squat!

Power supply circuit diagram


There is almost certainly a reason the PSU has blown, these are not very reliable units and the amp has probably gone and taken the PSU with it. You are better off taking it to a dealer and getting it fixed. If there is no power on the seecondary and there is no short the transformer must have blown (assuming you're not trying to check with a DC meter)

Kenwood kax-38 amp. distorted sound from turnatable if connected to the phono rca plugs, but ok if connected to the CD rca plugs.


The phono sockets for this are at different line levels for that reason. Phone is for the turntable depending on the type. If it is a later model stereo and an older model cheaper turntable, it uses an older type of needle cartridge called ceramic. The signal output of it is higher than the later magnetic cartridges and may need a preamp (radio shack) to match the line level signal, allowing it to clear the distortion. If this scenario were reversed, using an older cheaper stereo with a later, better quality turntable, the opposite would happen. (signal to low) This preamp would amplify the input. I think you need what is called a matcher to lower the input signal instead of the preamp. I've seen these at radioshack. BTW, the CD input doesn't distort as much because a cd player puts out a high signal and the amp is matched to accept it.

What size internal fuse on mackie srm450v2 speaker


Mackie say this is not a user service part. If the fuse has blown there is probably a fault in the unit being their reasoning. I know for certain they tend to blow for no apparent reason so it is worth giving it a go. They are 5 x 20 Slow or time fuses. 7A for 120V and 4A for 230V

Hi, I'm dealing with a problem on my Mackie ProFX 8 mixer. For no reason that I can discern, I am simply not getting any signal out of the mixer. I've adjusted the appropriate levels and gains,...


Are you getting signal into the mixer? Do the level meters light up?

If so, check your speaker cables. If not, check the mic cables and mics (try with phantom power on and off).

Also, try plugging a speaker into an Aux out to see if you can get level out of that.

Hope that helps...

ONLY GETTING MUFFLED SOUND FROM ONE OF MY MACKIE SRM V2 SPEAKERS,HAVE CHANGED DIAPHRAM BUT PROBLEM STILL THERE


If you've changed the tweeter and the sound is still muffled the fault is with the HF amp, or the cross-over. You will have to send the amp assembly for repair as it is all surface mount components in there -nothing you will be able to fix yourself. Sorry for the bad news!

Seems you might have a gate inserted on that mics channel. Or if you are going to a computer, the program you are using might have an insert activated with a gate. Which means when signal gets to a certain threshold, the gate opens and the mic signal passes thru, below the threshold...the gate stays closed and the mic signal will not pass thru. Hope this is helpful.

3 Take the back off and turn the amplifier circuit board to face you.
4 About 2" from the left and about 4" from the bottom you will see a sort of tab. pull it off gently and widen the 2 prongs slightly.
5 Put the jumper tab back on and re fit the amp.

Playing songs at certain volume


Several things can effect the quality of your files. 1. Check your headphones by comparing them with others. 2. The file quality may be too low, you can test that by getting a higher quality MP3 file and comparing the two. 3. If you are creating the MP3 files yourself, be sure to watch the sound recording level. Allowing it to stay in the red can produce distortion while recording ay too low of a level can result in low voulume as well as possible distortions. If none of these correct the issue, you may need to replace the player.
