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.

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

How to turn sound on phillips plasma 32 inch tv


Hello
I thinks that you want to tune your TVs sound parameters, and answers. As you know, when the TV is switched on it will display picture as well as sound, according to the volume level setting. If you want the qulality of sound much more better, by pressing Menu button and higlight the opton 'Sound'. As you select, there will be a 'tick' mark appears, indicating that sound option is selected. On to the right side, there will be Bass, Treble,and balance control displays. Use "Cursor Up" button to go box 'Bass", and increse or decrese Bass lavel as you likes. If you wants to adjust treble, use "Curser Right" button and do as previous to your taste. Come to the "Balance" option by using "Cursor Up or Dn' keys and set it to mid position. There will be indication for its mid position, and it should be in that position, so that you can hear sound from both speakers equally.
All jumpings and adjustments can be done with 'CursorUp, CurserDn, CursorLeft, CurserRight' Ok.

Having Trouble Assessing Bass and Treble Controls


Bass and treble can be adjusted via the sound menu only when the z-enhancer is set to off.

To change them while the Z-enhancer is on (B-Boost, Excite, Impact) choose the enhancer mode, then press the play/ent button. You can then use the up/down arrows to adjust bass and treble to -3 to +3
