    How have you got the speakers attached to the firestudio? Also are the firestudio volume (main knob on front) and speakers volume controls (on front of speakers) up? Also the dsp Mixer that the firestudio uses can be a bit of a pain sometimes. have you tried any other outputs on the firestudio?

Make sure you have your speakers connected to the main output. Also, in the "Universal Control" "Mixer" window, make sure that at least one of the mixes are assigner to "Mo", which stands for main output.

Clicks digital !!! I have problems with my D8 connected to " firestudio 26x26 ". Noise of clicks random only in the tracks of the D8. Clicks foxgloves apparently CLICKS of milliseconds...

Make sure all background processor hogs such as Antivirus, Antimalware, Anti-spam, automatic defragers as well as internet accessing program are either removed or disabled on your computer. These processor hogs cause overuns and underruns causing data loss which appear as clicks caused by discontinuities in the data stream.

Crackling and popping during playback/recording, latency issues. Using Firestudio Project, Windows 7 and Cubase 5.

Turn OFF all resource hogs such as Anti-virus, Anti-pop-up, and other background programs. Disconnect all internet access such as wireless and Ethernet service programs. All these resource hogs and programs for instance that keep track of when to run scans just cause interrupts of the servicing of the high speed audio grabbers. Your machine should be BARE of all these hogs.

With my pc, the presonus firestudio tube got solid blue light but it makes audio cripples, with cubase it can't make the asio multimedia setup. i have latest driver and firmware

Check your latency settings and try something higher that what it is currently set to. 1024 samples is usually a good starting point for most newer PCs.

Hellooo There, I need to convert my FireStudio Project from 120v (US) to 240v (Australia). Does anyone have a circuit diagram or assist with the process for this conversion?

On the back panel, beneath the socket that the IEC mains cable plugs into, the legend says 110-240v A.C. so I believe that the unit is already dual-voltage enabled.  the spec sheet on the manufacturers website confirms it is factory configured to work with 90-230 volts.
However if you are not prepared to risk trying it I would simply purchase a separate voltage converter capable of delivering 20watts output. In the UK these cost about £10 (AUD$20) and  would be a lot cheaper than wrecking your  kit
