Make sure your useng a balanced out put from your mixer not phono.

I reckon there is a good chance you've got a dodgy mains transformer, or perhaps a blown internal fuse. Sounds very much like the problem is on the AC input board.

Need a wiring diagram to hook up two 10 inch subs and 15 inch sub a kicker 250.1 amp


Series or parallel? Single, dual voice coil? I'm not sure you have the right size amp for all 3 speakers. And I wouldn't wire the 10's together with the 15. The larger sub is going to have a larger power demand. You could wire the 2-10's together on this amp, and get another mono amp for the 15.

Mackie 15 inch replacement speaker


To determine polarity of a sub, take a 9 volt battery and two one foot pieces of wire. Connect each wire to each terminal on the sub. Then touch one wire to one side of the 9 volt battery terminal and the other wire to the other side terminal. If the subs cone pushes upwards that is the correct way to hook it up(in phase which is normal). If the subs cone pulls down, is is 180 degrees out of phase. I hope that this answers your question.

My powered sub is humming


Does the humming go away if the cable is plugged in but you wiggle it? May be a bad connection on the input jack.

I use a Mackie 1604vlz board. I have Passive EV Speakers that I use a QSC power amp for. I want to add one Powered Subwoofer to this. How can I hook up without buying a crossover? Can I run out frome the...


You can, but I would not suggest it. Depending upon the input design of the powered sub, the highs might not get filtered out. Many subs assume that they are only receiving the lows. You are better off using a crossover between the mixer and the amp for highs and the powered sub for the lows. Please note that the crossover will give you much more control over the sound quality.

Major hummimng noise when sub is connected to receiver.


Is the hum in the receiver-attached speakers or the sub?


Self-powered sub?


How is the sub attached - RCA or speaker-level?


Disconnect the input(s) and see if it hums in the absence of an audio source. A bad audio cable shield or unwisely-routed audio cables will allow entrance of unwanted signals from external power sources, magnetic fields, even dimmer-controlled track lights. Sometimes, simply reversing the orientation of the ac power plug can eliminate humming.


If it hums with the sub attached, unplug the sub's power cord. Differences in AC ground potentials will generate hum across linked devices.

Hi I have Mackie DFX-12 Mixer along with 2 Power


Run your speakers cables to your stereo "outs" (L/R) then run your sub off of one of your aux "outs" or sub group "outs" (make sure you assign channels to sub group out).

The TV will not power on with remote or manual button


Have you had any major power outages in the days leading up to this issue? It could be a power source, cable or outlet. Try different outlets if you can and see the tv responds.

Best of luck,

My computer sound system


Most likely the sub has the crossover in it, most likely the 2 input cables from whatever device you want to play through the system will plug into the sub then the 2 speaker cables will come out of the sub and go to the speakers, just be sure to have everything connected into and out of the sub and make sure the power cords for the speakers and sub are plugged in, I am assuming this is a self powered system wich means the amplifiers are built into the speakers and sub.
