At low volume it is fine after you get to about 20 on the volume it starts to crack,pop and distort very bad what is making this happen


Your speakers may say 350 watts but that is the peak wattage at which they blow up and not a wattage they can sound distortion free at. Look for the RMS wattage which is probably around 40 watts. If you look at the specs on your receiver you will see it will put out a maximum of about 50 watts but the distortion on the receiver is above 1 percent at anything over 22 watts. That means they are going to start distorting at around half volume. The other thing you might check for is a impedance mismatch between the speakers and the receiver. Is the receiver set up for an impedence output of 8 ohms but your speakers are 4 ohms impedance.

I want to connect an iPod to my Marantz SR 5600, what type of cord do I need?


You need a jack-2cinch (differen name is jack to 2 RCA) cable. Jack goes to your iPod's phones output, cinch/RCA to amplifier (connect it to CD or DVD analog section at the back). While playing set volume to 50% to avoid distorted sound. This way you can connect any MP3 player to your amplifier.

When i turn on my yamaha f20 guitar amp, it produces a hissing/ static radio sound. Is it the power capacitor or something else?


Possibly interference from another electrical source. This can be compounded by high gain or the use of a distortion pedal. Try moving the amp to the middle of the room or away from things like appliances, lighting dimmer switches computer, tv etc.
Hope this helps.

Str-gx800es sony receiver problem- right channel speaker sound is 'static', low and distorted. I have checked checked all speaker and output/input source cable connections with no luck. All left channel...


If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

This sounds like a power supply problem. The high voltage for the tubes is not right. Either you are missing an amplification stage because this or one of the coupling caps is faulty. I'd have to see the unit itself to give you any more details.

Bandmaster head volume is low and distorted


Hi Joanne

Check that you do not have a faulty quaddy or speaker lead first. by plugging the head into another box. If it is distorted on another rig, then you have a fault in the head. This can be a number of things, least to say that it will need some electronic repair work done to it. I suggest you take it to a guitar amp repair doood for a look. Sorry I cant actually fix it for you in the medium, but is will need some expert attention, so advice is all I can do.,

Hi i use a peavey 6505 Amp head and when i run a seymour duncan pickup booster through the effects loop it blows the amp (possibly the pre-amp fuses) i want to get a volume boost in a distorted setting...


Hi bmwz43

Odd that you keep blowing the head... and with 5 12axl preamp tubes even more surprised that you cannot get enough gain... :) Get the correct pedal for the 6505 and change yo levels that way. Hard to beat classic tube amp for tone:)

Check the the amp has the correct impedance setting for the quaddy you are using.

One more thing, what sort of cable do you have connecting the amp to the speaker box. If you use a cheapo guitar jumper lead arrangement, expect that to give you trouble AND **** tone. The 6505 has 120watts of cranked up tube output. Tube output stages need a solid at least 18 gauge cable and quality connector jacks, like Switchcraft. They can blow fuses if you don't use a decent speaker connector lead.

Get back to me here if it does it again, and check to see exactly which fuse you are replacing. It can help sort out the problem.

Distortion/noise and buzz in front left speaker


Try to see if the reciever will make the buzzing/noise without anything connected to it except power, and speakers. Tune into a local radio station and see if the noise continues. If the noise has stopped, then you know there is an issue with the player or cable.
