NO, I HAVE HAD TWO PAIRS OF THESE SPEAKERS. tHE SECOND PAIR I HAD FOR TWO WEEKS AND SAME PROBLEM, EITHER LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE GOES OUT.

I Insert a compressor on the stereo buss to protect the speakers from transients and they just loose the woofer everytime.

They cannot be trusted, DONT WAISTE YOUR MONEY.

When setting up xr8600 is it best to start mains and monitors master at 0DB?


1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.

I have recently purchased a set of M-Audio Studiophile BX8a Deluxe studio monitors. I can't register them for warranty because I can't find any serial number on the monitors or box that they came...


Call M-Audio and ask them about it... It is POSSIBLE that your speakers are counterfeit. It has been happening with high value audio equipment. There has been some failures of this product as well. Also contact the company you bought them from. There is a lot of grey market stuff on Ebay... I hope that wasn't your source.

I have a pair of m-audio bx8a deluxe monitor speakers. I need to know how hook my iPhone up to them or just one of them. I tried using a adaptor and plugging into the trs input but the music is distorted....


The conection you made is not quite right. This is because the TRS (and the XLR) connectors at the back of the BX8a are for balanced signal. You have to use either this cable or connect both middle and ground point of the TRS connector at the ground. In other words the ground from the ipod must be connected with ground AND middle ring of both BX8a and the ring of the ipod must be connected with on BX8a TPS tip and the tip of the ipod must be connected with the other BX8a tip. I don't know if you are familiar with soldering connectors, in this case post me back to make a schematic for you with the connections.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

The volume on the monitor doesnt work, even though the computer indicates it does, the test for volume shoes so, and the volume on the mixer is on and optimal. I have tested music, which didn't make any...


magus, Is the "audio cable" connected to the back of the W19B monitor? Are any ear "buds" plugged into the front of monitor??

How do i turn the volume up


Did you turn up the both (at the PC Audio control panel and at the Monitor control panel) volumes up?
Try using MP3 player or any audio sound sources feeding the monitor audio input to see what happen also.

My volume is not working correctly. I have it turned up to 100 - the highest and I can barely hear it.


Monitor volume is affected by TWO volume controls (or even three...)
1: Volume on the monitor can be set to 80%
2: Main Volume on the COMPUTER can be set to your liking.
3: Wave volume on the computer mixer settings should be set for 80% (See Sound on your control panel or right click your volume control near the clock)

If all these are right and the volume is still low, check that the audio is not set for surround 5 or 7 channel and the monitor audio connector is plugged into the REAR green connection on the computer.

Still problems, the audio driver in the monitor is shot.

I cannot increase the volume and it is very low. I have tried using all the tools that I can find but to no avail.


I know this is an old post, but since it's the first Google result that shows up, here's the solution:

On the Q19wb press the '1' button, then use the arrow buttons to highlight "Audio Adjust" and press the '2' button to select. Then highlight and select "Volume" using the arrow keys and the '2' button. Then, adjust to a higher volume using the up arrow button.

Note: if you aren't getting any sould from your monitor follow similar steps above but select "Mute" and "Off" in the options.

Connect BX8A speaker to PC


Hello waddragon,

First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be.
It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine.
Let me know how it goes.
