    I don't quite understand the TFT rating. I repair Mackie boards as well and have found that Mackie is very helpful. A quick call to them can get you part numbers, pricing and availability. Unless there is some other issue for which I can assist further, can you please rate the provided info as helpful. Thank you.

Whats the correct order to run my mackie mixing board EQ and crossover together

You didn't mention any model #s, however, a typical set-up would be the following:
  • A Crossover is the last processor in-line before your amps. Always use a proper protection capacitor on your high end (horns, mid horns, tweeters, Piezos or High Horns to protect the diaphrams)

  • The equalizer can be placed anywhere between your mixer and crossover but should generally be placed after all other processing equipment and before your crossover.

Hope this helps.

How do i repair if the product has no power

It only cost 140 euro new and you get way to much gear for that money, allways buy a mackie, without sound dsp, i\'ve tried most and the mackie onyx 1220i was expensive, but the new model comes out and the 820i is allready good enough . Those sounds on a behringer are bad and the monitors, especially the 3031a is real good for the money, way clearer and the tweeter is amazing for the money, but the mixers were crap The mackie 820i looks small but it has way more option then you think. Don\'t send the behringer for repair, waste of money, since the airflow in the unit ain\'t there and if you want effects: buy the new alesis nanoverb 2, way faster then your mixer and it sounds good, costing 70 euro.But i\'ll go search for the schematics of your unit and you can take it apart, but keep making pics whole the time, so you know where what to put where if you put it together. I think it is just a capacitor which has blown up. Or the top stands bold, then doesn\'t repairing won\'t cost a thing

How to hook up the wires of Mackie CR-1604 mixer, to Alesis ADAT xt20 recorder

If memory serves correct you have rca and outs, 8 each. Using rca to 1/4" cords work the best. Connect each of your cords from the "in" on the alesis to the channel access 1 through 8 I believe to the first click. Run the "outs" from your alesis to channels 9 through 16. Use 9 through 16 as playback and 1 through 8 for instruments. This is one good way of doing it with our limited gear. Good luck!

Why does sound have a muffled sound to it

It sounds like you have a bad ground connection on either an input or output. Try wiggling the cables and plugs that connect to it. If you can figure out which cable is bad, try a new one. If it still has the problem, then the problem may be inside the mixer. If so, I can fix it. Contact me at

Whan connecting a graphic equilizer to a mixer do i go from my mixer to graphi inputs then from my graphic outputs to my amp

You could do that if you only need to EQ the end result of the mix.

Or if your mixer has an external processor loop you could place the EQ there and use the EQ on the mix first, or on a source within the mix. It would all depend on the mixer's capabilities.

It sounds like you may have a bad cable. The most common place for a small gauge cable (such as RCA, TPS, XLR, etc) with metal connectors to fail is in the stain relief which often fails to live up to its name. An easy way to check this is to grab the cable near the connector and wiggle it. If the sound crackles and changes volume levels suddenly then you may want to try a replacement cable. If the replacement doesn't help, you should use a contact cleaner such as "Blue Shower 2" that is approved for electronics use. Make sure your mixer is switched off and disconnected from its power source before using any cleaners to avoid any risk of electric shock. Apply the cleaner to all exposed output connectors on the mixer. Hope this cleans up your output prolems

I repair DJM 600 for many years. :) The reason for the burning of IC 557 (+8V H 600mA ) is invalid amplifier for headphones!!!
Replace IC 310 and IC 312 (in big mainboard), and replace
IC 557with original fuse 600mA
!!!!!CHECK YOUR HEADPHONES!!!!!! This is the cause burning amps.!!!!!

Behringer SL3242 Mixer has a noise problem.

It sounds like you have ground loops. This is noise generated by having interconnected equipment grounded at different physical locations. Especially a problem if you have a cable from your cable TV provider connected into your equipment.
Remove EVERY connection into and out of the mixer. Plug in headphones. Noise? If so, mixer needs repair. If not, re-connect equipment 1 piece at a time and assess for noise. If it slowly increases as you add connections you will need expert on-site help to fix it. If it is sudden, what was just connected is the source and steps need to be taken to lift the ground on the connection to that equipment.

Outputting high pitched sounds and master balance switch problem

Maybe the issue is not with your mixer. Maybe its with one of the units you connect to the mixer. Does this happen in all the channels?

If the service company could not duplicate the problem, then the problem might be somewhere else. Double check and replace your cables going to your amp, as well as the cables coming from your CD players and such.
