Alesis Monitor Problem

Hi,

Just been reading your solution to the Alesis monitor problem. I'm having problems finding the exact capacitor. I have managed to locate a bunch of 25v 470uf @ 85deg will these be of any use?

Thanks in advance.
Mike

Hi Mate, Im no electrician so Im not 100%, basically I think it would last but it wouldnt be a long term fix as it really needs to be 105c.

Cheers

I lost the treble on both Alesis Monitor 1 speakers. The treble is good on the amp output toward the speakers. I'm thinking they went out one at a time and I didn't realize it until I lost the...


It's probably blown tweeters. But if you want to spend the money on a hipshot guess, try to find the the crossovers somewhere first; then find the readily available tweeters if/when that doesn't work out. Google "alesis monitor one MK2 tweeter".

You could test the tweeters by just removing one non-functional tweeter and wiring it directly to the speaker leads and with REALLY LOW volume containing NO BASS see if it makes any sound, which would prove it does/does not work.

Going forward, if the speakers sound stressed at high volume - THEY ARE. Too much power or too much distortion (overdriven amplifier) will kill speakers.

How do i go about connecting the alesis monitor one mk2's to my my laptop? i do not have an amp and there are no cables or connectors with the speakers when they arrive


You can without an amp in between. They are non-powered speakers and need an amp to drive them. If you connect your laptop to a mixer, mixer to an amp, then amp to speakers THEN they will work.

Buzz on Alesis M1Active 520 Monitor


Check your output conections and shielding, try swapping over l for r and see if the problem moves.
Check each monitor on some other source ipod etc.

if it always the same unit with fault then you need a tech.

Alesis M1 Active Mk2 Speaker won't Power Up


Hi, This is usually the Capacitor C8 on the powerboard it usually bulges and pops, its becuase its right next to a resistor which gets very hot and sometimes puts the capacitor into meltdown, yours might have gone past that stage but this is worth a look; http://www.neufeld.newton.ks.us/electronics/?p=232

Hope this helps

Cheers

Fuse blows found bad parts on the board...


Hi, Email Alesis and ask very nicely and they might email you a copy of the schematics, which also has the parts listed, etc.

I had the problem of the blinking LED's a few years back, really odd, and fixed it, and now I do a search and all I can find is people with the same problem or similar. Depending on how bad the damage is, it should be repairable unless its done extensive damage to the PCB board. PCB boards are still available to buy, dont bin it, they are too good to be binned ;)

Alesis 620 m1 active studio monitors sound cutting out


It could be a power problem, unless you have blown the driver ?, carefully pull out the power supply board, and look to see if anything looks melted, burned, or capacitors popped etc. Be carefull though as I do not want to be responsible if you get an electric shock, etc. preferably look and dont touch, just use common sense ;)

Need a M1Active MKII diagram


Hi, You will need to contact Alesis direct and they will decide whether to email you a copy of the schematics, as they are copyrighted, etc.

Alesis M1 ACTIVE MONITOR amp circuitry board is ticking


The flashing blue LED and loss of sound on the Alesis M1 powered monitor is caused by failure of capacitor C8 (220uF, 35V) on the power supply board. It dries up due to its proximity to resistor R4 (47K, 2 W) which gets very hot. This is a design fault.

Remove the power supply board (4 corner screws and 2 mains connector screws) and disconnect the two plugs. Carefully desolder C8 and replace it. Its value is not critical (220 to 470 uF will do) but it should be a 105 deg. type, preferably at 50V.

Remove R4 and replace it with a similar resistor with its leads bent so that it is nowhere near C8, otherwise the fault will return. One end may be connected to one of the existing R4 solder pads (furthest from rear of board), and the other to the top end of resistor R3. Check that you have connected it correctly by inspecting the PCB tracks.

Replace the board and all screws and plugs before testing.
