How loud do you expect it to be?

More watts doesn't mean more loud but it gives you more headroom for cleaner reproduction of very loud passages. Distortion will kill a speaker faster than clean signals will.

My amp turns on good but after a while of too much bass causes a ugly sound too loud what could it be? Can it be repaired?


If you have over driven the amp by playing it real loud with the bass control turned up, it is very possible that you have toasted the output stages of amp.
Every time you boost a tone control by 3 db you have doubled the output power at that frequency. So if you are "coasting" along at a nominal 75 watts, the moment you boost the bass by 3 db the amp has to put out 150 watts at that low frequency.. Go to +6db and now the poor amp has to kick out 300 watts! And so on.

Rule of thumb - you never use your tone controls at very loud levels. Tone controls are there to compensate for the poor frequency response of the human ear at low volume levels - the Fletcher Munsen effect. At low volumes our hearing with the lows and high frequencies so when you play something at low volume you boost up the bass and treble to compensate for poor hearing. At loud volumes our ears respond properly.

How do i get my speaker to work at high volume with out them cracking,popping destort


If you are using the factory installed speakers they aren't made for the wattage output of your receiver. Factory stereos only put out about 5 to 10 watts. If you want to play it really loud you need to replace them with speakers that have a higher wattage that what your receiver puts out, which is a maximum of 50 watts

Where do I start testing?


I would check if the amplifier somewhere gets hot. Most likely with a certain temp the amplifier will go into protection, Avoiding damage to the vital parts.
When you can find the place where it becomes hot, perhaps you can see if a transistor, or am integrated circuit is not correctly fastened. Before fastening it, perhaps you should apply cooling paste. (Like you use between a microprocessor and the van)

Perhaps it is only running hot, because you want to much power?
To loud.

Audiosource amp 100 on lower volumes right speaker louder than left speaker 2.1 setup


The problem is not due to how the circuitry is configured; the problem is due to failure of some element in the right channel amplification circuit. This will require detailed troubleshooting to correct.

I have a Peavey Renown Solo Series guitar amp. It's 450 Watts. It's a great sounding amp. My problem is that now when I turn it on, the light comes on but there is no sound. This used to happen a few times...


You'll need to have the amp in for some troubleshooting. It's not easy to say what the problem is and it could be a number of things. Also, that 450 watts is the power the amp uses, not how much audio power it puts out. The Renown was originally made in a 160 watt format and on the back of it, it says "450 watts" on the left side of the back, but that is the power it uses... This is why I say you should take the amp to a shop...

How can i connect 2 12''s pioneer premier too an jl audio amp n make the bass loud???


Hello m1k377060,

Having your subs in well-designed and constructed enclosures will make as much or more difference in their output than how you connect them to an amp.

The TS-SW1241D's are single voice coil 4 ohm shallow subwoofers that are rated for 350 watts RMS. For maximum loudness, your JL amp needs to be 2 ohm stable and capable of delivering 700 watts RMS into that impedance. Wire the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load and maximum power from the amp.

Hope this helps.

Ultra 350 Power supply very loud fan


Hi,
It's not normal for the fan to be loud, what makes them loud is either a build up of dust on the fan blades or the bearings are going on the fan itself.
If the PSU is working fine then you can replace the fan itself from an identical PSU. It does mean taking the PSU out of the computer and fitting the fan yourself.
Alternatively you can purchase another PSU.



Regards.

Mic feedback. I sing on a shure beta 58 mic, into a 350 watt peavey amp, into 2 - 200 watt peavey speakers. My band is loud, and I simply cannot get my mic loud enough for them to hear me, without constant...


It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.

Amp 100 Line 1 in problem


Hi JamesOBrien

That is a strange problem you have indeed. The amp switches automatically from one input to the other, with default to input 1. You say the source sound dips low, is this a source from another integrated amp, where the AMP100 is working as a zone 2 device? . Are you using it as a zone 2 amp, and plugging other devices in the zone 2 area? and lastly, are you using auto on functions? Let me know, and we may be able to figure it out for you.

If it is new, then it may be worthwhile swapping it over for another by the supplier of the amp

regards

2 12" Hitron 600w subs in a BandPass box


Remember that driving a load with an underpowered amp will probably cause more problems than having a more powerful amp that is not running flat out. 200-300W amp would be ok, but I would suggest going for the biggest you can afford. If you crank up the volume on the smaller amp you will probably get a fair amount of distortion, which may actually damage the speakers. A larger amp will not give as much distortion for the same loudness/volume and give better control of the speakers for a tighter bass..
