Question about Bob Mackie SRM350 Main / Stereo Speaker
I have an 808s I use for karaoke gigs,I use peavey 1015 impulse speakers for mains and srm 450 for floor mon. I run my player through the aux in on front of the 808s, floor mon. to mon.out on front, mains on far left and 3rd holes on back. System use to sound wonderful, I useto have something going from the eq send on the front plugging back into the front somewhere but can't remember,its been awhile. Anyway,with it hooked up like I described I can't get music sound to come out as I need it without humming , I do get plenty of vocals. can anyone help me out here????
Try a couple things
Try plugging the player directly into one of the stereo channels using correct cables (just go to Radio Shack or someplace like that) - you'll probably have to get a stereo to mono "Y" adapter that terminates in two mono mini or 1/4 inch male jacks ... if mini, then upsize them with another adapter ... it's not as rigged as it "sounds" ...
The benefit is, it is actually simpler and you will be able to use all of the channel strip controls for the player just as you would for a mic or guitar plugged in to a channel, and the volumes will behave more as you expect them to ...
Just be absolutely sure the cable you assemble is correct, meaning stereo single 1/4" (or whatever it is, two RCA's whatever) going into the player, and terminating on the other end with two MONO 1/4 inch jacks ...
I use this kind of "Y" connector to play my iPhone through my 808s and it works very well, and I have full control and no confusion.
I'm not sure what you mean by running your player through the "aux in" on the front of the 808s - there are different versions of this mixer, but mine doesn't have anything labeled "aux in" - if you mean the tape inputs on the right front ... RCA jacks ... that should also work, but I prefer just using the normal input channels ...
For example, use input 8 - it's labeled "mic 8" - but if you use the two 1/4" jacks above the Canon jack the mixer will automatically adjust to line level ... on my 808s these 1/4" jacks say "stereo mic/line" ...
Also, I would bypass the effects section completely unless you need it and understand how it works ... and
Make sure the "Power Amp Routing" switch is in the correct position ... since you are using mains and monitors you probably want the "mono" position, which disables the stereo outputs and instead uses one of the power amps for the mains and the other for the monitors ... on my 808s this is the "in" position
On the back, you'll use the speaker outputs labeled "left/main" to go to the main speakers and "right/monitor" to go to the monitor speakers
It's actually pretty simple - with the Power Amp Routing switch pushed in, you no longer have stereo, so ignore "left and right" on those speaker outputs, and follow the labels for "main" and "monitor" .....
Hope that helps!
