Common. The sound board should have a mute button. Activate when turning it on. You may have a stand-by position, you can turn to this position, and turn sound back on. From the stand-by to on, it should be gone.

Logitech speaker feedback

Feedback is a sharp, loud noise that can come through the earphones of a headset unexpectedly---it occurs when the headset is getting sound (feed) from someone else speaking or playing music into a microphone. This sound can create a dangerous situation for someone who is operating expensive equipment or flying a plane at the time since it can disable hearing temporarily.
If you experience feedback often, it could also lead to serious hearing problems.

Mic Too Close to the Speaker or Volume Too High
The main cause of a feedback sound in a headset is proximity to a speaker. If a person holding a microphone on the other end gets too close to a speaker, it creates a loop of re-amplified sound that results in the loud, screeching noise. When the volume on the other party's microphone is too high, it is more vulnerable to picking up unwanted noise and feedback from speakers and sound output devices in the room. So make sure that you ask the other party to turn down the microphone to a normal level and stay far from speakers. b> Two Microphones Gathering Same Sound b> When the other party places two microphones too close to each other, it could cause feedback. When positioned toward the sound source (such as a person speaking) the microphones will both pick up the same audio and compete with each other when creating the output of sound, causing a sharp noise in your headset. This problem, called acoustic phase interference, is resolved by simply ensuring that the other party uses one microphone at a time. Poor-Quality Headset or Microphone b> One common cause of feedback is simply a poor-quality headset or microphone. Most modern headsets and microphones have noise-canceling features that manage and kill feedback before it has a chance to occur. These noise-canceling headsets are essential for pilots and aviation crew members. If you hear sudden feedback that is strong enough to hurt your ears, the headset or microphone is simply not properly equipped to actively cancel that unwanted noise before it hits your ears. Buy a higher-quality noise-canceling headset to manage the feedback noise when you're going about your tasks. Hope this helps.

My xbox microphone makes a loud noise at random times which then my friends tell me microphone is making a noise i disconnect but then it comes back soon to make the noise

The wire on your headset could be loose. Every time you move your wire, you could either talk through it clearly or otherwise it will make a static noise.
The only solutions I have for you are:
  1. Buy a new compatible headset
  2. Fix the wire (NOTE: It is difficult)

Intermittent "popping" sound through the PA

Hiya, try to isolate the fault first, ( amp, mixer, whatever else is in) Easiest way is to switch of mixer, if still there, then probably the amp if those are the only 2 items in the PA. Once isolated, it might need repair as this often power supply issues. Before sending it in though just make sure all connections, plug wires etc are good as well. Bets of luck

We have a dbx Driverack PA unit with a Crown CDi1000 amp in our church. Recently, we starting having problems with the output to our main speakers dropping out. We found (by accident) that if we unplugged...

Check the speaker wires coming out of your amp. Chances are you have a problem with a speaker wire and this is just a coincidence. I say this because the same thing happened to me during a live show and I about had a heart attack. We lost the front of house for about 15 minutes while I tried to troubleshoot the Driverack, the board, and everything but the speakers and speaker wires. The cables were a recent purchase and were premium grade with light wear so I mistakenly ruled them out. It was intermittant so it took me a while to figure out. Now I understand that that's the weakest link in the chain and from now on I start there and work backward through the chain (that is, if all sound is cutting out).

Do you use banana plugs (two metal pegs sticking out of a plastic rectagle) coming out of the back of your amp? There are little screws inside the holes on the back of the banana plugs. Those can vibrate loose, especially if they're just factory tight. Get a little standard screwdriver and tighten them down. That will probably solve your problem.

Okay, wait a minute -- could be one more thing. You mention that the loud popping can be heard. Do you have any gates turned on? Most compressors have gates. Check your compressors to see if you have your gates turned up too high. A gate set too high would allow the loud pop to go through to the PA but would cut off everything low to mid-volume.

I guess you can see that I don't think it's a problem with the Driverack. I don't work for dbx or anything, I just think these other things are far more likely than a problem with the unit.

Make sure your speakers are not the "shielded" type ( aka guitar microphone cable ). Alot of people think there is no difference between a guitar cable and a speaker cable. The speaker cables should be at least 14 gauge with good soldered connections and NOT SHIELDED!

Microphone makes a popping sound

Dear friend,
Do you remember if it did that before you have dropped it?
As far as I remember, all mics I have worked with would do the same thing: an unmistakeably loud burst when you turn it on and monitors/PA are outputting.
My suggestion is that you kill the audio output (through channel mixer muting), turn the mic on and then bring the audio back on.
That should avoid unpleasant surprises.
