Hi rockbert

Yes you can do this. the only drama you may have is at high levels where one amp may begin to clip and distort before the other. If you are trying to run a stereo setup, you could counter this to some degree by adjusting the bigger amps gain down to the same level as the smaller amp if needed, giving you control over the "stereo balance".

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Could be just a bad soldering joint, especially if it does so when touched or moved.

While playing, my Roland KC-550 will make a loud pop and the sound will stop for a moment. It then starts right back playing. Sounds almost like a short???


Sounds like some solder / component connections have failed
Have a tech check solder joints on the power supply and output amp
I see this on a reg basis

Roland KC-500 has power but no sound.


You need to determine if the power is getting to the audio amp section. For instance with the volume full up is it humming etc?
As a 'rule' it's unlikely that both left and right channels will fail at the same time (unless you have done something silly with the amp) you are looking for something that is common to both channels. Which is why the power section is first suspect. The exception to the rule (above) is where amps use say an IC power amp for both channels. You will find this IC on the big heat sink. Check whatever is on that anyway for damage or burning.
The only other area could be the pre-amp part. Again this could be a single IC controling both channels, so it's failure could cause a loss of sound. By the way if you can hear music/sound coming through when you put it up to full volume the pre-amp will be generaly good.

I have a roland keyboard mixing amplifier, KC-550. With an ipod plugged in, its only playing one channel, regardless of which channel I plug into, and the keyboard is also not sounding full. Not sure if...


The KC-550 is a MONAURAL amp and since the Ipod emits STEREO you have to use a special cable to MIX both the left and right from the Ipod into a single, monaural signal.

You can MAKE a cheapy mixer that will serve your purpose by using a series resistor, say 1K from each of the two Ipod output channels to go to the single mono input to the KC-550.

I would build it this way: Find an old IPOD cable or any 1/8 inch stereo cable and seperate the two wires and the shield. In a 1/4 inch plug, connect the shield from the Ipod cable to the shield (barrel sleeve) of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect one lead of each of TWO 1K resistors to the TIP connection of the 1/4 inch plug. Connect each of the two signal leads from the Ipod to the two remaining floating resistor leads. Insulate the splices.

DON'T forget to put the shell for the 1/4 inch plug over the cable before connecting the cable to the 1/4 inch jack. All parts should be readily available at Radio Shack.

I don't know that I have ever seen a suitable ready made mixer cable for this function.

Try a different guitar and cord. If still problem, give the amp a bump without guitar plugged in. If amp makes noise, there is an intermittent internal connection,

Roland AC90 crackles when using a slide.


It is because the AC-90 is not grounded. If you look at the power cable, there is just + and -, no ground/earth. This is because ground is not usually needed when using acoustic guitars/ mikes. If you use an electric guitar, or a slide, there will be problem. I have a AC60, that does go to ground. No hum. AC90=hum. Can probably be fixed by attaching new power cable and soldering earth to the chassis, like on the ac60.
