Please bring a good brand lubricant contact cleaner from near radio shack and apply it in the sockets(the place which you put your jack).and insert your jack in-out many times-also you have to check cable for the bad channel(try with good channel cable).

How to connect behringer xenyx 1204usb mixer to a numark mixtrack pro II dj controller?


you have to tell your dj or studio program which device to use as output, but the dj controller doesn't have an audiocard so now i first have to search myself since my mixers have built in serato and another that annoying native i. No i'm just doing difficult while a numarkx5 stands in front of me and the main outputs go to your mixer and your usb is just for recording , but plug the mixer out in the mixer , main out in your monitors and calibrate the sound, but your studie or dj gear wants to know which channel to use and there fore you need to read the manual of your mixer and behringer. It's easy, but not from here.

Hello....spectrum RS232 cube speakers vs bose red line double cube speakers sound wise what can i expect.....tkx.......scott


Bose Redline day in and day out, twice on Sunday. Spectrum RS232's are "Flea Market" quality speakers. If you really want to spend money on speakers go to a "Boutique"! I hope this is helpful.

Low output with high volume


sounds like distortion is being caused by trying to amplify a low volume level from the input device. try putting the ipod volume at a medium level and try again to see if the distortion goes away/reduced

How do I connect my bose equalizer to my pioneer amplifier


The manual is at Bose.com.

In any question regarding connections the exact models of all parts in the scenario should be defined.

"Pioneer amplifier" is not unique nor revealing. Integrated amplifer? Power amp? Tape Loops available? Pre-Outs? What's involved as a preamp?

The key thing to know is that any amplifier channels driving 901's must not drive other speakers as the Active EQ severely modifies the Line Level source input. If the EQ (or any sound processor) is used in a Tape Loop on a modern multichannel digital-audio-capable AVR, ONLY 2-channel analog sources will function when the Tape Loop is engaged; and all downstream speakers will be affected by the processing. That's par for the AVR course.

Bose 901 use in multichannel applications (which I have) will require access to Pre-Amp outputs for the chosen channels (likely the Front) and you will need to get a separate amp for the 901's, placing the EQ in series with the chosen amplifier. I currently drive mine with a Carver MT-200T.

Volume control of system output is not stable with sudden high volume output bursts. Any ideas?


Sounds like a faulty / worn fader. If it does it on all channels then look at the master fader 1st.

A good source of parts is available here :-

Technics SH GE70 : 1 bar doesn't do much


I would want to know if it's just an indiction problem or an actual notch.

Let's prove the signal is pure going to the EQ.

Tune between FM stations with no automatic muting on your receiver so you can hear a loud hiss. Monitor the EQ display. There should be a lot of energy across the bands. If you see the notch swap the inputs to the EQ to prove it's in the EQ. Otherwise the signal is being affected upstream.

Let's prove there's no audible notch in the bandwidth. This is the fun part.

Set your system to just play Stereo with the FM hiss and if there is a Stereo Direct setting that bypasses internal circuitry, engage it. Adjust the EQ for equal level and flat response on both channels.

Disconnect the two front speakers. Wire just one front speaker across just the Positive leads of the Left and Right amplifiers. This is not dangerous. (**)

** Back in the day we used this kind of wiring (with some proper resistance and circuitry to prevent interaction between the front channel speakers) to extract ambience (difference) information from plain stereo to drive a speaker at the rear of the room. Adjustment was done by selecting MONO and turning the Balance control for Minimum output, then going back to Stereo for listening. Ah, the old days.

What this does is make the speaker play only what is DIFFERENT between the channels. If the source is truly MONO as it should be there will be a minimal output presented to the speaker. In an ideal world a true mono signal fed to both channels in this manner would result in total silence. There will always be some difference in the real world.

You can prove the accuracy and fullness of the EQ signal by adjusting one channel of the EQ to be different and as you do the sound should start to rise as the Delta increases. Returning the controls to flat and equal should provide minimal output. If there is a solid audible difference in the treble range the EQ might actually be showing the 6.3khz deficiency accurately. To see if it's at 6.3khz adjust the LEFT channel downward to match the display of the RIGHT and the difference program material should become very low as heard from the speaker. That would indicate a true deficiency in the LEFT channel.

Fixing it might not be possible but you might be able to use the EQ to offset it.

Bose 901 and Tube amp


Yes! When the Bose ~Steve901 first came out that was the amplifier of choice -like the McIntosh classic amps. The 901s have their own equalizer as that speaker system is a phased-array,
