Woofer not working on new bx8a speaker

Hi, I recently bought a set of BX8a speakers and the woofer does not work in one of them. I have tried switching the xlr cables but still only get a sound through the tweeter. The speakers are brand new and have never been used. I would really appreciate your advice. Thanks a lot. Eric

Hi ermo

Your new speakers are BiAmped, and if a woofer is not working then it is probably a fault in the amp or connection for that woofer, or the the woofer itself has a problem. If they are brand new, I suggest you take it back to purchase point to get sorted out. There is nothing that you can do that will NOT void your warranty. If you do not have a warranty, then get back to me here and we can work through the problem. Cheers

regards
Graeme

Hi i have a set of bx8a and one of them when it is on the woofer pumps out uncontrollable even when no music is playing please help


If the woofer is motor boating....going in and out, like a flutter,
likely a power supply issue on the power amp board, in back of the speaker. This would need to be repaired. Since these are powered speakers, if for example, a power supply capacitor were bad,
it can do that. If under warrantee, find an authorized repair center near you. Contact manufacturer.
Hope this helps.

I have recently purchased a set of M-Audio Studiophile BX8a Deluxe studio monitors. I can't register them for warranty because I can't find any serial number on the monitors or box that they came...


Call M-Audio and ask them about it... It is POSSIBLE that your speakers are counterfeit. It has been happening with high value audio equipment. There has been some failures of this product as well. Also contact the company you bought them from. There is a lot of grey market stuff on Ebay... I hope that wasn't your source.

I have a pair of m-audio bx8a deluxe monitor speakers. I need to know how hook my iPhone up to them or just one of them. I tried using a adaptor and plugging into the trs input but the music is distorted....


The conection you made is not quite right. This is because the TRS (and the XLR) connectors at the back of the BX8a are for balanced signal. You have to use either this cable or connect both middle and ground point of the TRS connector at the ground. In other words the ground from the ipod must be connected with ground AND middle ring of both BX8a and the ring of the ipod must be connected with on BX8a TPS tip and the tip of the ipod must be connected with the other BX8a tip. I don't know if you are familiar with soldering connectors, in this case post me back to make a schematic for you with the connections.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Speaker comes in and out... woofer blown im guessing.. what can i do to fix it before i end up sending it to m audio to be repaired


Does the tweeter keep playing when the woofer cuts out?

It is rare for a speaker to cut in and out, check all wiring connections and if possible connect it to a different amp to test, the amp can cut in and out just like a speaker. Try switching it with another speaker and see if it cuts out aswell.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

M-AUDIO STUDIOPHILE BX8a (woofer)


Hi David

The fault may be the bass driver itself or the Low Frequency power amp built into the speaker box. hard to determine which it is because it is intermittent. There are a couple of things to try. when the fault occurs.
  1. just lightly touch the cone on the bass driver see what happens. If it fires up again, it has failed soldering on the spider wire connections from the terminals to the cone. This can be repaired by a decent sound guy the does speakers, or a specialist near you that can be found easily enough. A new replacement driver is also an immediate option if you don't mind spending the bucks.
  2. if the above didn't work, to prove to yourself where the problem may lay, you could swap the bass drivers from one box to the other and see if the fault follows the driver, or remains with the speaker box. If the electronics are faulty, unless you have some decent experience with soldering and fault finding, you may be best to get it to a repair guy,
If you cant get it sorted, please provide me with your location(not address:)) and I will be able to locate a decent guy that knows what he is doing for you. Cheers

Connect BX8A speaker to PC


Hello waddragon,

First, let's start with the BX8a. Those are powered speakers (built-in amplifier in each) so, you do not need a pre-amp. What you need to connect them to your computer is a 3.5mm to XLR cable OR a 3.5mm to 1/4" TRS cable, also known as 3.5mm to two 1/4" mono plugs (the back of the BX8a has inputs that accept either type). Cables are available at most any electronics stores. Make sure you buy a long enough cable to run from the back of the computer to where the speakers will be.
It sounds that you only have one BX8a which means you'll be listening to only one channel of the stereo output. In any case, make sure before connecting the speaker(s) to the computer that speaker power is off and volume control is at minimum. Connect the 3.5mm cable end to Line Out 1 jack of the X-Fi sound card and either the XLT or TRS ends to the speaker(s) input(s). Play some audio content on your computer, turn on speaker(s) and slowly increase volume to a safe level. Everything should work fine.
Let me know how it goes.
