Question about M-Audio BX5a Speaker

The volume control on my bx5a deluxe has a short. It has a "sweet spot" where it will play at one volume level. Do you have a part number or a solution?

Part are difficult to find for this unit. I would suggest you take it apart and try to read the value on the volume "pot" and then get a replacement from radio shack parts, just remember to order "audio taper".

The tool of sound check, which can also be found on iTunes, check your iTouch music and video library for the stabilization of the equalizer song for a constant level, the volume limit reduces the volume to grow beyond a set point, which helps the potential adverse effects of hearing loss caused by loud music. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1.

You are in danger of popping the amp. The Fender passport 150 would be capable of covering about only a 20 foot by 20 foot area. If your area is bigger than that, you need more power and certainly bigger speakers. I would NOT recommend the larger Passport systems as the speakers are too directive for what sounds like your use... also there are reliability issues.

Crackling sound in speaker


These speakers have a history of being blown if played too loud. Apparently the higher quality CX version are reliable. If the lows are what is crackling, the voice coils are probably cooked causing it to drag the pole pieces.

I presume you have proven the channel is dead by trying multiple sources, swapping a different speaker onto it and that the balance control is NOT all the way to one side; headphones don't work either and we're down to proving it's dead before you take it in to a tech, right?


There is the slighest chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


If it still doesn't work you might want to prove if its a low-level signal loss or a high level amp failure. One way would be to run an RCA cable pair from the Tape Out to any other device (even a TV with speakers) you might have that accepts an audio input. If IT can't detect receive the DEAD Channel you

This would be burnt out voice coils. This takes some special tools and material to rebuild them. etech.com or ebay or amazon may have the things you need to rebuild it.

My fender hot rod deluxe is distorting in clean channel when I push the volume past 2


Realize that the number on the volume control is only relative... it means nothing regarding what the amp can produce. With a high level output guitar you can easily drive the amp into distortion at very low volume control level settings... what counts is the actual output sound volume and specifically the voltage output going to the speaker. Once the amp reaches saturation, any further input just pushes it into distortion or "flat topping".
An oscilloscope on the output will quickly show when amp starts to flat top.

Low Volume on CDs - Roland 2400 CD


Hey Rick, There are a couple of places to look; I'll assume you have a decent input level near -12db average without peaking. First, ensure during playback upper right meter labled MST is near peak without going over, if you have room push the master level above 0db to +1 thru +6db and recheck for peaks above 0db. (You never want digital recordings to hit above peaks, you lose quality or resolution of the sound) As you find the sweet spot, master rec to 23/24-16 using the elevated level on the master fader. The manual suggest editing and mastering with the master fader at 0db however if you don't compress your tracks individually or reprint them at higher levels, you may have a great mix at an overall lower volume, pushing the master fader should help for a quick fix, but if this cures the level issue, try compressing and leveling each track to peaks prior to the first mix only lowering tracks which are too loud, when you get to mastering, all your signals are at their top potential for the CD. Spend a few minutes burning samples at low, just below peak, and just above peak levels on separate tracks and playback in your boombox for reference to a commercial CD. You'll find little to no difference when you are in the sweet spot. Another trick is to mixdown to a separate pair of tracks (not 23/24-16) and compress again during master mixdown rec. (ultimately 23/24-16) Good Luck Jeremy Yates, Radio World LLC.
