Question about Kustom KSC10ML PA Monitor

1 Answer

Hi! I need two input/output plates for my Kustom floor monitors (KSC10ML). By input/output plate, I mean the unit that has the volume knob plus the two input/ output jacks that is screwed ino the side of the monitor which in turn attaches internally by wires to the horn and speaker. Where can I order them from, and how much will that cost, please? Thank you, Joe Wright

    I can make this connection for you. I simply put a wall plate with two 3.5 mm female plug holes and mount inside a surface mount box. It's just soldering the connections. $75 Call Nick at 404-402-4266

The KSC10ML has NO volume control... only two 1/4 inch jacks. To get a matching "jack cup" you will probably have to go to Kustom. I have searched for the item on the web and only jack cups that seem to come up are for Marshall or ones that use binding posts. I found one blank one but it is 5 by 7 inches... too big for that Kustom cabinet. In a pinch if you don't need it to be recessed, cut metal or ABS plastic plates and drill for two jacks.

    That's funny!
    I copied the number right off my monitor plate, and my two cabs DO have a volume control!
    Maybe they don't anymore. I bought my monitors used in Sedona, Arizona ten years ago! Thanks for the advice on the 'jack cup'...

  • Fred Yearian Apr 16, 2011

    Those must be very old units... they don't make them that way any more... here is a link to the only ones I found and they are probably too big:

    The only other thing I can think of is to temp remove the woofer and mount a plate on the backside with machine screws and try to finish the raw edge of the opening.

I have a Kustom KPM8420 PA mixer and the monitor channel comes through both the monitor and main speakers and vice versa. The two channels are not separate.How do I fix that?


On the back panel there is a section labelled Patch Bay
There are 2 small switches which assign each Power Amp to either Monitor or Main Output.
It would seem you have them both set the same at present. Set one to Monitor and one to Main, and use the corresponding Power Amp outputs direct to speakers.

Note you can send signal to external amps or powered speakers from the preamp outputs. This is really handy.
Download and print the manual from https://www.manualslib.com/manual/90516/Kustom-Kpm-8420t.html
and keep it with the mixer.

( Of course don't send speaker outputs to other amps or powered speakers )

How to Set up Auxiliaries on a Mixer.


Here are some tips to set up the auxiliaries properly on your mixer:
  • Step1:
Your auxiliaries allow you to send the signal from a channel strip to somewhere else while maintaining the signal on the channel strip. For instance, you can use auxiliaries for monitor mixes for performers in a live environment. You can also use auxiliaries for external effects processors or a number of different situations.
  • Step2:
Set the auxiliaries to pre-fader to allow you to change the level for the auxiliary with the auxiliary knob but not with the channel fader. Most mixers have a "Pre" button that allows you to enable pre-fader mode. If you don't have the button pressed, your auxiliaries are in post-fader mode, which means your channel fader will affect the signal level of the auxiliary output. For monitor mixes, you usually want to use pre-fader so you can control monitor mixes independently from the front of house mix. Some effects processors will be better to run post-fader, though, so don't always rely on pre-fader.
  • Step3:
Send out your auxiliary sends. On the back of your board, you there are the auxiliary outputs. For a monitor mix, you will use these outputs to connect to the inputs of the monitors. When using an effects processor, you will use the auxiliary output to connect to the input of the effects processor.
  • Step4:
Plug in a return if necessary. If you are just doing monitors, you do not need returns to the mixer. When using effects processors though, you need a way to get your effected signal back to your mixer. Take the output of the effects processor and connect that to the return input on the back of the mixer. Now you will have to adjust the return section on your channel strip to get the desired signal.
  • Step5:
Use the auxiliary knob to set the desired level. Once you know if you are running pre- or post-fader, and you have your inputs and outputs all correct, you can start sending signal to your auxiliary output. Turn up the auxiliary knob until either your monitors are set correctly or until you have the desired amount of signal going to your effects processor or other outboard equipment.

I'm using 2 different power amps and the monitor (M) will not work unless I have the L=R sliders up or I can put the M send in the R and it will work the monitors separately. Why and what am I doing w


1st....the output section, "M" stands for mono. The A&E does not have "monitor" sends per say but instead calls them "Aux's." Adjust the proper Aux for the input channel 1-16 and use the Aux output section (row of knobs above output sliders) as the master volume. By using Aux 1-4 (and with more amps) you could send 4 discrete monitor mixes to four different band members. Bass likes his monitor strong but doesn't want to hear other members while guitarists want to hear only himself and the singing drummer...etc.

Not reconizing input of guitar


Read your manual good and check settings. Look for master volume and pan outputs. Make sure it is connected properly to you amp. You have a left and right output, also check the amp/line switch. You can find your manual here http://line6.com/support/manuals/

I have 2 Kustom KPC10MP powered speakers - very new. One has developed a hiss that increases with volume, regardless if there is signal going into the speaker or not. This is a new development as of today....


Hopefully you were powering ALL interconnected equipment from the SAME receptacle. People can destroy the input circuit of powered speakers by plugging them into a receptacle at the stage and then powering the mixer from another receptacle... Pro's know to power ALL interconnected equipment from the same source, be it a receptacle or a power conditioner to avoid ground bounce damage to equipment. They carry power from the stage back to the mixer on an extension cord. You may have had a static discharge that blew one side of the balanced input of the speaker. The parts are inexpensive, however the labor to get at the amp is usually not fun. I have the dual 10 powered Kustom's and one gets at the POWER amp via removing the speaker after the grille... HOWEVER that is to get at the power amp. The Preamp is probably the failure and it is right at the input plug area and you can get at that by removing the panel with the plugs and power switch and volume control.
I don't have the schematic. Look for shorted RF bypass caps on one side of the balanced input circuit and possibly a damaged input op amp.

I have the Phonic powerpod 820. I ordered a Kuston powered floor monitor to add too the system. I know not to hook it up too the speaker outputs on the back of the mixer. So where do I hook up the powered...


You will plug an UNBALANCED 1/4 inplug cable into the MONI jack on the front of the unit. The other end will probably need to be an XLR plug to connect to the Kustom POWERED monitor. Please note that the UNBALANCED output of the Phonic is NOT good engineering practice. The Phonic stuff is normally low-end and they don't do everything correctely, although for a small system it should work. IF you get excessive hum from using a long cable to the Kustom with a "Kludged" unbalanced to balanced cable, you MAY need to use a DI box at the Phonic end to convert the unbalanced Phonic MONI output to a balanced line (XLR to XLR) for a longer run to the Kustom monitor. You might get a 1/4 inch TS to XLR balanced plug that has a transformer in it and use an XLR to XLR cable to the Kustom. Please note that having this plug in the Phonic hangs out and is easily bent over so I would recommend using a right angle connector at the Phonic and plug the 1/4 inch TS to XLR adaoter into that so the yanking of the XLR cable won't break the 1/4 inch adapter off in the Phonic.

My Epi valve jr v3 burns up jj el84 tubes, but the solvteks work fine...is it the amp or the tubes?


Check the bias on the tubes! Some brands can run with bias set wrong. Also some amps have 4 output tubes and people don't know that MATCHED pairs have to be seperated to each side of center of the group of four tubes.
You probably only have a single EL84 tube in your unit.
I could not find the schematic for this unit... IF the plates of the EL84 are coloring, the bias is set wrong. The plates should remain BLACK and not coloring to dull red or orange. Telling if the tubes are "burned up" can only be done with a tube checker or electronic test equipment or by seeing a bright purple glow between the elements.
Now this is supposedly only a 5 Watt unit so that means it is for LOW volume practice only... If you overdrive this small amp you can PROBABLY burn almost any tubes you put in it. The sound you can expect out of this will not be louder than most of the consumer boom boxes at full volume.
If you overdrive and "flattop" the unit the power tube will overheat and fail... this amp runs the tube in "Class A" which makes failure under overdrive more likely than in Class AB or B. I can't go into the engineering details other than to say at volumes above the design the output transformer will saturate and the tube will have to dissipate way above its ratings.

You didn't mention what brand powered mixer you have, HOWEVER MOST powered mixers also have a line level monitor and main output jacks. These are almost always 1/4 inch jacks. In any case you should be using BALANCED lines to the powered speakers using either XLR or TRS connectors on the ends. Please tell us what powered mixer you have so we can give you better answer regarding which connections to use. IF for some reason your mixer does NOT have line level outputs, you can use a high level Direct Box to condition the powered outputs to be sent to the powered speakers..
Also make sure ALL your interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or source to avoid damaging due to ground bounce on utility lines and circuits. This often means running an extension cord from the stage where the powered speakers are along with a snake of the audio cables.

You haven't mentioned what model and manufacturer the mixer is. I will have to guess and say that the monitor out on the board isn't providing signal to the powered monitor or the monitor out on your board is powered and is now damaged by plugging a powered monitor into it. Carefully reread your manual and determine if the monitor out on your mixer is powered or line level. Reread also and make sure that the signal you are monitoring is assigned to monitor out, levelled correctly etc. If you find that the monitor out is passive (line level) try hooking it up to an external power amp and speaker. A guitar amp will do for testing purposes. Start with a low input volume on the amp. Also make sure that if it is passive to use a shielded cable from monitor out to input. If your board has powered monitor outs you can use a speaker cable from monitor out to speaker input (non powered monitor speaker).
