Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Used banana plugs for my amplifier, but bare ends of cable were too long, and then my amplifier short circuited. Silly. I would like to know if the IC is toasted or the power supply (or both). Is this something I could fix myself? Amplifier is a Marantz PM 75.(Digital amplifier with DAC on board

How do I attach banana plugs to my receiver's binding posts?


Easiest would be to remove banana plugs on one end of wire and put eyelet on or wrap bare wire around the post and tighten nut and washer down onto it to secure it as in the older days of posts and wires.

No low end from speaker. Sparks came out of backplate when switching the plug from jacks. Now the horns are only thing that works


If you failed to turn off the amp before changing speaker cables you have fried something. Since the plug shorts when unplugging, if the amplifier were on, the amp would sense the short and will often fry the amplifier or the speaker. You don't mention what the amplifier was. If the speaker were daisy chained to other equipment a ground loop probably formed and blew out the woofer. The horn often has Peavey's "SoundGard" circuit so it probably survived. NEVER change speaker cables while amp is on. ALWAYS secure the 1/4 inch type cables through the handle of cabinets so they can'tbe inadvertenly pulled out and burn up equipment. Your amplifier driving one of these should be rated at no more than 200 watts RMS. These "400 watt Prrogram" ratings are for the birds... fake advertising. Put 400 watts into this RMS and it blows out.

The speaker cables has "banana


If they're a fixed spacing that doesn't match the spacing of the black and red speaker terminals you'll need to either chop them off and replace them with individual tips or just wrap the twisted bare wire ends around the base of each post and crank 'em down. Make sure no strands are touching anything but the intended post.

Speakon cable to amp


Check the wire's insulation for ridges or striping; if the insulation is clear check the color of the wire inside. Then check the source of the wire to determine which polarity is connected to which wire. Once you know the polarity of the wires at the source, it should be easy to determine the polarity of the wire at the destination. The wire closest to the particular banana clip is most likely the one connected to it. If all else fails, you could use an OHM meter.

first check your input cable-disconnect it and check if the problem finished---you will have a problem in input(cable or device)-start with another cable then your input device.
if the problem still check your out put cables(speakers cables)for short circuit or touch the bare wire with amplifier body.-try to clean volume controls with spray contact cleaner---confirm good connection in amplifier rear and in speakers rear.

About my amplifier


check your speaker cables for short circuit cable---or the bare wire of cable touch amplifier body----short circuit of cables close to each other---------bad input cable----or defective input device-----.
disconnect all things and check then connect it again one by one from input to output until you find the bad one.
