Question about Mackie MR5 MR5 Reference Monitor

Open Question

The tweeter on the top part of the monitor works just fine. The sub on the bottom part does not work when I try to put music through it. What is weird is that when I'm getting a text message, the weird sound that comes from electronics happens, but it goes through the sub. I have no clue to what the problem is.

Pull the input plate off of the back, there are usually light bulbs in there that act as fuses

The tweeters are not working


The crossover caps may have failed, or the tweeters themselves burned out. Using a small 1.5 volt cell touched across the tweeter leads should produce a sound. If not- they are burned out.

My monitor is styill for working but the tweeter dont make any sound. i think its blowed up, is there a fuse a something that could be replaced in the amp?


no fuse in there unfortunately.

The problem could either be a blown tweeter (but that would likely cause distortion rather than silence) or a fault with the amp or crossover. Often it seems a relay is at fault in these instances with dynaudio monitors. In any case, unless you have considerable electronics knowledge (which I think it's fair to assume you don't ?) you won't be able to fix em yourself. Give dynaudio an email or call - they're helpful.

Hi, I have a problem with both of my Mackie MR8s. They both play really quiet, like ridiculously quiet with no low end at all. They don't make that "clicking" sound when you turn them on either....


The woofers were likely the problem in the first place. DO an ohmmeter check on them.

Note that the ohmmeter often doesn't work for testing piezo tweeters, but does work for the woofers with voice coils.

Has anybody ever replaced an entire crossover assembly (circuit board) in a Alesis Monitor One? Specifically, does the woofer need to come out, and if so, how?


Look here:

http://www.instrumentalparts.com/crossover-pcb-board-for-alesis-monitor-one--mk-1-and-m.html

and here: http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-15436568105612_2091_46855693

See that 8.2 mfd bi-polar and one of those white ceramic cased resistors???. Those parts feed your tweeter... One of them is bad. You can buy the board for $30 or spend a couple bucks for those parts.

http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Xicon/140-NPAL100V47-RC/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtZ1n0r9vR22WuTsnx9Abs03070dCRY8QE%3d

http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Xicon/140-NPAL100V33-RC/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtZ1n0r9vR22UhSjrTM10DE0iKGiddcDi0%3d

Put one each of the above two capacitors in parallel to make 8 mfd to replace the 8.2 mfd and it will work fine. They only cost 74 cents each. You can find the resistors as well from Mouser.com.

IF YOUR crossover is potted in a hard material, that probablly destroyed the caps. The caps would have to be encased in a foam before hard potting as the shrinkage of the potting material would crush the caps a bit and cause failure.

What type of fuse would you use for Mackie tweeter?


I would contact Mackie and see what they say. The MR5 is already protected internally by the built in amplifier circuitry as far as I know.They can be reached here:http://www.mackie.com/support/index.html

Replace High Frequency Transducer (Tweeter) on


You should order an exact replacement from Mackie since this is a reference monitor.

Consider putting a limiter or fuse in series to protect the speakers if this was due to overdriving it.

Hi there. Search "top hat". There are 2 different depths. Compare measurements to space available in and on the enclosure where you plan to install it. (bottom)
Thanks
