Hi my name is MIchael and I repair the following amps JBL PB10, PB12, TSS-1100, TSS-1200,PS12, PS12, E250P, SUB12 Venue. If it has the screw near the on/off switch. If your amp is blowing the fuse, has bad sound, no sound, doesn't power up or if the output is low or muffled. We can fix it - please check ebay and search WE REPAIR PB10 PB12 - you will find us ...

Willing to bet you've blown the amp, or fused the coil. I've had it happen twice, apparently when running off a power source that apparently couldn't handle the load. Hope it's under warranty - if so Loud Technologies (deals with all Mackies warranty stuff) should be able to replace the unit. Otherwise, you'll need to take it in to a service department and have it checked out.

Good luck, you'll have to arm wrestle with them to get them to replace it.

Mackie 450 thermal light on no sound


could you give some more info? what are your running into your speaker? and how exactly is it run? once we weed out common issues like switched up cables, than we can move on to internals.
which on that note, I think this is a manufacturing defect


here's a link to the schematic if you want to go poking around the circuits.....

Dont know how to hook up srm1801


Go from the main outs on your mixer to the input on the 1801. With an XLR, connect the 'high pass' output on the 1801 to the input on the 450 on top of it.

Mackie srm450 not making any sound at all


It sounds like the thermostat didn't shut the speakers down before they were damaged. There is probably a very fine wire leading to the speaker coils which is burned/broken. Fixing this broken connection my solve the problem unless the coil itself is damaged.

Another possibility is that the crossover circuitry in the speaker cabinet is damaged from overheating.

Sounds like you need a service tech to look at the bad speaker, unless you want to tackle the job.

Mackie 1501 sub immediatley shuts down after powering up.


Hi There, There are 3 internal fuses to check that clip onto the main amp board. You can access them by undoing the two screws that are on the top and the bottom of the sub. They have flat large heads and you will need a hex key to unscrew them. If it is one of the fuses that has gone it will either be discoloured as in burnt or you will see the metal inside has split. Simply replace these with a new fuse and hey presto you should be back up and running. You might also want to check that none of the push on cable ends have dropped off fom the board as this may also stop connection going through. If you need any parts for the sub or fuses then www.LondonSpeakerShop.com will be able to supply them (that is if you're in the UK). Hope this helps. Grant (from www.LondonSpeakerHire.com)

Sub remote works with two passive satallite monitors but sub has no sound


If sub has two signal outputs and if the monitors are full range (passive crosover built in), put mixer outputs to the sub and signal outputs of the sub to amps in.If not mixer outputs to th amp and its signal outputs to the sub in.Or you can use main out of the mixer for the monitors and rec out for the sub.Its just few XLR or jack cables extra.Just make sure that the mixer,sub and the amp are on the same power phase otherwise you'll have brrrrrrrrrrr on the speakers
