Hi r_drain

great choice of speaker, always liked MS gear. They are designed to be biamped, or rather have a separate amplifier for bass and treble frequencies. You can just jumper between the terminals. They originally cam with a plate that connect the 2 black and red terminals together making effectively one black and one red. The speaker still has a crossover in line internally.

    wow, came up blank on that one. Have checked all my usual haunts on audio forums, but there is virtually no info about at all. They may not have been a widely distributed model. I say that they are capable of handling what ever power they can handle. Speakers are most often damaged by being underpowered. If an amp is driven to clipping, a 20 watt amp can burn 200 watt voice coils. Using a decent sized amp means you don't run out of power. Transient power handling is high on most small well made speakers. What sets the limits generally is the mechanical excursion of the woofer. If you drive the boxes to the point they are running out of "mechanical headroom" then that is too much power. You will hear this sort of problem as loud clacks from the woofer(voice coil hitting the magnet!!), or muddy distorted bass. So unless you are listening to death metal, I would be confident in hooking them up to say at least 100rms.

    I use a QSC 500wrms/ch power amp to drive my Alesis Studio One monitors(rated 150rms) on the end of my console for recording bands, never had a drama. The MS 5-30 are perhaps not as commercially tough as that, but with care, they should handle any sort of power. Just don't let teenagers use the rig!! :)

How do i find out what sound card my p.c is using? i'm on windows vista, and need to change the bass and treble level ?


Most laptop sound card do not have a setting for bass and treble.
You can use external powered speakers that have bass and treble settings and connect these speakers to the headphone socket on your laptop.

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound


There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

Alpine do have a repair centre if the unit is not old it could be worth you getting them to refurbish it. It will comeback like new if you ask them to go that far. They will quote you first.

I have set up a BOSE Accustimass System with my STR de485 receiver. How do I adjust the treble/bass?


hi,
if u are using bose speaker system then remember one thing. go to speaker setup and select all the speakers as large not small. then only u will get a good tone. bose speakers will handle the output power of ur amplifier.
u can only adjust the bass and treble of ur frond Channel speakers. for that
select multi channel surround sound and the increase and decrease the bass and treble
ok

I Have a buzzing mordaunt short avant 916i cone


Hiya, its the cone. The former is touching the magnet inside. Realignment is really tricky and dont know many people who can do that so you may either have to live with it or see if someone can recone it in your area.

Best of luck
