    Thanks for the help. Yep, certainly were made in NZ and later in Australia. I am hoping to get a 4 x 10 box and see how it goes. It ran a 4 x 12 box guitar really well. Way loud enough.

    Thanks again

Hell yer, built in New Zealand... or Aussie, cant remember. Best sort of speaker box for bass is 4 x 10inch quad box. Next. a single 15 inch, or use both together. The head you have I think was more of a PA system than a bass amp, but will certainly do the job. So long as you are not trying to keep up with a Fender twin, or a Marshall stack. 100 watts don't go far for bass. I would go for the single 15 inch driver to more the most air.

Can u tell me what amp I need to run my 2 x 400w EV sb122 bass speakers and 2 x 300w EV sx300w top speakers


The wattage listed on the speakers is the peak wattage the speakers are rated to handle. You need amplifiers that do not exceed that maximum. A 50 watt amp would drive them fairly well but you would do better with a 100 to 200 watt amplifier. Note: the speaker rating is peak power handling. Amplifiers these days are usually rated at peak output too but sometimes (old or very high quality) amplifiers are rated at sustained power (RMS). If you are working with one of these amplifiers you will need an amplifier with a lower rating. Also make sure the amplifier is designed to run the same load as the speakers. This is usually either 8 ohm or 4 ohm. Make sure the speakers and amplifier are rated the same.

I bought a pair of Mordaunt Short Qviano 1 speakers from Richer Sounds 18 months ago and now find that the tweeter in both units has failed. The amplifier I am using is rated at 70 watts which is within...


Specs refer to UNdistorted sound. Send square waves to any speaker and it will die eventually, perhaps even the amp.

You are more likely to blow up speakers with an under-powered amp pushed to hard than a monster amp running well within its capacity. Distortion percentages rise vertically once the amp's useful range is exceeded. Tweeters are usually the first casualties.

It's tweeter hunting time.

What size fuse do i need to use for my speaker protection kit


This will be based on the 501 model as you did not give a model Also I am assuming speakers are 8 ohms which I have no firm information for the Tannoy, but they should be marked when you open the unit. We are allowed 40 watt RMS for the woofer and 20 watts RMS according to the specs. They do not tell us what impedance the speakers are so we will do calculations based on 8 ohm speakers... if yours are different, then recalculate; P = I^2 * R so for 40 watts and 8 ohms then I squared = 5 or the current is about 2.3 amps max... You COULD use a 2.5 amp fuse, but if they were my speakers I would use a 2 amp fast blow which gives a bit of margin for the woofer. Now for the Tweeter we have I squared is 20/8 so this comes out I squared equals 2.5 or taking the square root we have 1.58... you could use a 1.75 amp, but if they were mine, I would use either a 1.5 amp or even a 1 amp as the tweeters seem to get blown in these. ALL of these calcs are based on the specs of power for the 501 model and ASSUME 8 ohm speakers... Recalculate if your units have different impedance thaan the assumed 8 ohms.

MTX Lolita Sub amp defective power transformer (open primary) What's the transformer voltage?


Without Knowing the Output Chip or transistor Numbers, I don't know but Most 100 Watt anps use 60 to 70 Volt Centertap Sacondarys. Also if You Take the Cover off The Transformer you will find a Thermal Fuse in the Primary. I have bypassed the Thermal Fuse and went with a external fuse, Go for it.

Car Ampli Problem


forget hooking this on a subwoofer. this amp produces only 50 watts per channel at 4ohms or 70 watts per channel at 2 ohms RMS...
If you try bridging the sub, it will only give out maybe 100watts bridged.
So..... if your sub is, lets say 1000watts RMS, youre just going to bust your amplifier to smoke...
Find a more decent and powerful amp. This amp is only intended for separates and lowend subs with an RMS of 80 to 150 watts

Why would i spend a 100 to 120 dollars on a car amp?


any amp will work with any speaker, you just need to make sure it is a mono amp if you are running 1 speaker and a stereo amp wither 2 or 4 channel if you are running 2 or 4 speakers, the ohm rating on the amp should match the speakers also, on the back of the speaker it has the ohm rating, most will be 8 ohm, but you still find some 4 ohm, depending on the speaker if it has a lot of throw (the in and out movement) you may want a higher wattage amp so you get clean sound, it is up to you.... if you are installing lower price amps to you may hear engine wine or noise while car is running so a grounde loop isolator installed on the system will remedy that... also with the amp the directions will tell you the ohm rating of the wire to use, follow that.... and keep the ground short and clean where ever you put it.. try not to go directly off the battery cause you will get a lot of noise... hope this helps..

Fender Stage 100 dsp, solid state amp volume (or power) problem


The Deluxe may have more efficient speakers....which would cause it to sound louder. Also, the EQ settings could play a part in this. If the EQ's aren't set the same there could be a noticeable difference in sound.....usually the mids can have quite an effect on overall amp volume....

Gem Sound clipping problem


First of all the EXA-3940 is rated at 350watts per channel in to 8 ohms. The 1400 watts is bridged into a 4 ohm load. Second, the speakers can handle 1000Wats peak with an average of 600 continuous (i'm guessing). That tells me that the amp is underpowered for the speakers. The sensitivity of the amp is such that the mixer is overdriving the input stage. That is what is causing the clipping. If you are looking for more volume, you are probably better off purchasing another amp and running them in bridge mode, 1 per speaker cab. Be careful though, not to overdrive the speaker cabinets either.

Size of speakers and amp recomendation for JVC KW-AVX800


you need to find out what size speakers you have now and upgrade them with that size the amp you get will be based on the rms rating of the speaker. Example if the speakers rms rating is 100 watts the get a amp that puts out between 100 and 120 watts rms also to add bass you could go with a subwoofer that will add all your low freq. If you want something that doesn't take up alot of room try a bass tube you can get one amplifed or not.

Good Luck
