First solution is to lower your gain setting, lower it down all the way till all signal fades then start from there. In your eq settings, filter out all frfequencies below 80 that will eliminate alot of sensitivity. Lastly try not to fidget with your hands too much, or swing the mic around. And as always, check your feed wiring. Especialy if your reciever runs stereo into the pa

### How to convert from cubic meter into square meter

You don't. Cubic meter is a measure of volume while square meter is a measure of volume.

For example, consider a room that's ten meters by ten meters, The room is 100 square meters. Now consider a ceiling that's two meters high. The volume is 200 cubic meters. Then raise the ceiling a meter so it's three meters high. Now the volume is 300 cubic meters, while the area is still 100 square meters.

### How to set onboard fx processor

Which clip light on what and what mics are you using?
The small room settings are from 10 so just turn the know to the setting you require and press it, this should set it.

The stadard way of setting up mics is to set the channel gain so the channel clip light just blinks occasionally when you are making the maximum sound you can into the mic.

For effects repeat this process using the aux send FX for each channel you want fx on (turn the rest to 0) and doing a balancing act between these and the aux send fx master so you can only just get the FX clip light blinking occasionally.

Next set your gain/attenuators on the amp(s) so its clip warning can just trigger when you are giving it 0db when you are playing the loudest you ever will.

A mic fading away could be the battery dying (in which case try using phantom power) or if they're radio replace the batteries before each service. If they're wired dynamic mics then it is possible there's some protection circuit somewhere that's reacting to the constant clipping and backing off the amp.

### Hi i need to know how to convert 80 sq ft to cubic meters

You don't. Square feet is a measure of area while cubic meters is a measure of volume.

Consider a room 8 ft by 10 ft. The floor area is 80 square ft. What's the volume of the room in cubic feet (let's not worry about converting to meters yet). Well, that depends on the height of the ceiling, doesn't it? If the ceiling is 8 ft high then the volume is 640 cubic feet. If the ceiling is 12 ft high then the volume is 960 cubic feet. Without that third dimension, you can't calculate the volume.

### Infared won't work unless room is brightly lit

Just to provide clarification regarding the IR remote control- unfortunately its the opposite. A brightly lit room can negatively affect the infrared signal the remote uses to transmit the signal from the remote to the receiver- additionally interference may also be caused by fluorescent lighting. Another recommendation regarding IR signal interference is to; power everything off but leave the receiver & your TV on. Then proceed by powering one component on at a time, then testing the remote after each component has successfully been turned on. This process will also help you determine if a component may be causing the interference. Hope this helps! -Kirstie DISH Network

### Both the fan and light have ceased to function!!!

As an electrician, this is a fairly common problem with any kind of fixture - not limited just to paddle fans. The problem is likely a loose connection in the ceiling box, or even elsewhere in the circuit, as the chance that both the fan and light failed at the same time is very slim. Since the fixture is a paddle fan - when it is operated it causes movement and is a dynamic load - as a opposed to a static load that a non-moving simple light fixture would present. The constant movement can loosen a connection over time. Before we go any further, operate any speed control / light switch on the fixture itself to make sure they haven't been accidentally set to the off position.

Shut off the power. Loosen the screws on the cover or canopy that that will allow access to the wiring compartment in the ceiling. LOOK for anything obviously loose. You may need to have someone hold the fixture once you remove it from the hanger to see the connections - or simply disconnect the fixture wires from the house wiring completely. There may be 2 or 3 wires besides any bare or green ground wire that supplies the fixture. Photograph or otherwise mark the wires before removing the fixture wires.

Turn the power back on, and use a tester (preferably a meter) to see if power is present on the ceiling box wires that supplied the fixture. If present, the problem lies in the fixture wiring or individual fan / light pull chain switches. Wires do not fail along unbroken lengths unless cut. They will fail at places they are joined together. There may be a wiring compartment in the light fixture that has a loose connection. Inspect for loose or bad connections with power off and continue testing as above until you isolate the bad connection.

If there was no power in the ceiling earlier when the power was restored, there is a break elsewhere between the power source and the ceiling box. You'll have to look in switch boxes and outlet boxes in the room and possibly adjoining rooms to find the loose connection. It may even be in an adjoining room's ceiling box, too. This is a labor intensive job - and can take some time to locate and repair. Take your time and only turn power on when ready to check for the presence of power.

Of course, you could call an electrician to do the work for you. I hope this was helpful - good luck!

### Camera worked fine for the first 2 weeks i had it and now all of a sudden when i take pictures it makes the pictures darker than they are, for example ill take a pik in a fully lit room take hte pic and...

There are a lot of possiblities. Here are a few:
Flash is off.
Flash is not getting sufficient time to recharge after firing. Usually caused by low battery.
Camera is set to manual mode and either shutter is too fast or aperature is too small.
Film speed is too slow.
Light metering is not reading proper light levels.
Custom exposure setting is reducing exposure.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

### I have a cobra 29 ltd cb radio> when i click the mic i dont get transmission> do i need to tune my antenna or do i have a problem with the mic or radio?

It's the mic or radio like you said try this
unplug the mic the RX (receive) will stop
working there are 4 pins take a small screwdriver short one pin at a time to the
side of the plug an watch the meter if you
find one that makes the meter jump over
then short 2 pins together and not to the side
of the plug. there is nothing that will hurt you
or the radio.hope this helps.I have worked
with radios and outher electronics for over

### Why does my Hampton Bay fan light goes on by itself

I had the same problem as well.....It turn out that there was interference from some other electronic device, garage door, microwave, digital phone etc etc etc who knows for sure. I removed the fan from the ceiling and pulled the small remote control box out, changed the code on the four tiny switches...changed the code on the remote control to match the control box...... Completely solved the problem with the lights. Hope this helps..

### Cd vs. microphone

A few possibilites.

1. Even though you have some kind of peak limiting on your mics, the signal might still be peaking somewhere along the audio path and causing distortion. Gain controls might be set too high somewhere along the way.

2. The amp you are using might simply be driving too much power for the speakers to handle.

3. A faulty connection, connector, wire or input could cause distortion of something like distortion which is of course would be more apparent at higher volumes.

4. Equipment placement could be picking up sounds or interference from other sources.

5. If you are able to discern level peaks but they are occasional and not flat out, then a compressor placed in the mic signal path could certainly help - otherwise see # 1 above.

Best of luck in solving this.

Cheers.

### Keys up and everything dims and does not transmit.

Moving the volume/on/off knob to make the radio work again is interesting and a good clue. On most CB's, the pot is probably soldered directly to the printed ciruit board.

It's possible that there is a bad solder joint to the power connections on the pot that turn the radio on & off. If the solder joint is bad, it can still make a connection but the connection will have added resistance in line. The on/off switch can be bad too.
Switches arc each time they are used and over time, the contacts become pitted and make poor connection.

I had a stereo receiver where the tuner lights flickered and there was electrical noise in the receiver. It turned out to be a bad on/off switch.

This resistance may be low enough not to affect the radio when in the receive mode but when you transmit and draw more current that resistance will be noticable during transmit.

The fact that you rotate or move the volume/on/off knob and the radio starts working again, tells me that there may be a bad connection in the radio.

A cheap thing you can try is spraying some electrical contact cleaner into the pot and rotate the pot back & forth several times and turn the switch on & off several times to clean it.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
