Can i use a graphic equalizer with a yamaha as-500


My Yamaha Equalizer is Model GE-30. Review the manual for this unit and on page 3 you will see the connection procedure "Line Out" on the equalizer to "tape deck in" on the amplifier. In the case of the A-S500 user manuaI on page 5, I used the "line 3 " also identified as "tape deck" to connect the equalizer.
The front control(s) from page 2 on the A-S500 manual are then set :
Control(5) input selector set to Line 3 (Graphic Equalizer)
Control(8) REC OUT selector to CD (for CD), line1 (my blu-ray player, or tuner (my DVR/tv)
The only thing I lose is "PURE DIRECT" does not fuction if the equalizer is on, otherwise;
I simply set Control(5) input selector swith to the desired input source, the equalizer no longer
functions and "PURE DIRECT" can now be used.
The rest of the tonal controls for bass, treble, balance, and loudness work as they should.

Live Mix - Kick Drum


I go to a lot of live gigs where the mix is all "there" but it lacks overall.<br /> <br /> Most engineers I find underestimate the importance of a really solid kick sound in their overall mix. The audience, while probably not knowing why, will respond much better if the kick drum has real presence.<br /> <br /> There is a simple way to do this:<br /> <br /> 1. Boost the Bass (as far as you can push it without clipping or "*******" for maximum "RUMBLE" )<br /> <br /> 2. Cut 315htz in the low mid (this is the "BOOM" sound, bad for a kick, fill it with Bass guitar)<br /> <br /> 3. Leave Hi Mids flat<br /> <br /> 4. Boost treble for good definition (The "CLICK" sound)<br /> <br /> 5. Build your mix around this. I like to have it up far enough so that you can feel the kick drum as well as hear it but not much louder.<br /> <br /> I will leave most of the other drums flat unless the toms are too boomy in which case I cut a little of the low mids in them. You can also add a bit of extra 2000htz to the snare for more "crispness".<br /> <br /> Remember a good live mix has a good wall of sound:<br /> <br /> (If youre going to boost, boost these approx frequencies depending on the room)<br /> <br /> Cymbals 5000htz-20000htz<br /> Snare 2000htz<br /> Vocal/Horns 500-3000htz<br /> Guitar 300-1500htz<br /> Toms 300-500hz<br /> Bass 100-400htz<br /> Kick 20-200htz, 5000htz-20000htz<br /> <br /> Another simple mistake is not having headphones, I see this all the time!! You need them to isolate channels so you can quicly find out where any unexpected problems/noises are coming from.<br /> <br /> Don't forget to have EQs on all your AUX/Monitor sends and Front of House to cut feedback!<br /> <br /> Hope this can help out any engineers starting out.<br /> <br /> Thanks,<br /> <br /> Doomface

Thanks for the answer - If we have 3 controls as Bass, Mid and Treble. If we keep those in 12 O Clock position, will the output level be equal. In using the Bass and Treble control only (if we have...


If all are in 12 o'clock position they are "flat" (nothing has been added or subtracted foam input signal) If you only have bass & treble, yes adjusting will affect "mids" but Mids change can go both ways dependent on increase or decrease of Bass and /or treble. By increasing bass you will pull some mids up also. By increasing treble you'll subtract some mids.

In most of the Amplifiers we have only Bass and Treble control (Bass works on 100 HZ and Treble works on 10KHz - approximately). In some Amplifiers we have Mid range control also. What is the frequency...


The frequency of mid range control is about 1KHz. The bass and treble are usually enough to set the tone of sounds and music, and if the customer has high quality speakers connected to the amplifier it is almost unnecessary to modify any tone. In my opinion you are right that x-band equalizer became less important now.
Thank you.

Hi. my YAMAHA DSP-A1000, works well only the input selector does not to select. its all static noise and does not seem to lock onto an mode. i have to use the tape 2 monitor to hear music.


The INPUT SELECTOR is defective. Order part number VT148000; it costs $51.04. As of 14 Jan 2011, the part is on backorder until the later part of Feb 2011.

Register online to order the part yourself, or you can place your order by phone at the Yamaha Parts Department at (714) 522-9011 or (888) 892-6242, Monday - Friday, 7:30 am - 5:00 pm PDT.

I hope this post also clarifies the problem from the posts above.

IMPORTANT: After installing the new Input Selector switch, place the knob at 1230 position (between LD and DAT/Tape 1) BEFORE turning the unit ON. The Yamaha Tech said this procedure ensures the input source is properly programmed and aligned.

Amp powers up but just hums


The output transistors are probably shorted. There should not be any DC voltage going to the speakers. DO NOT run it this way for long or you will damage the voice coils of the speakers. This unit needs service. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range.

Bi-amp


After examining a picture of a 5802 ( I have been servicing adcom for over 20 years ), these are not bi amp posts, but bi wire posts.

Bi-amp means that 2 amps are being used, one for highs, one for lows. This means that you have no crossovers in the speakers, instead, you have an electronic crossover between the amps and the pre-amp. The highs and lows are separated in the electronic crossover. One amp handles the lows, one handles the highs.

Bi-wire means that you have the crossovers still inside the speakers. The amp handles the full range of music ( highs-mids-lows ). Different kinds of speaker wire produce different results. If you have bi-Wire terminals on your speaker, they come with shorting wires, that tie the tweeter + to the woofer + on the back of the speaker, and the tweeter - to the woofer - . When the shorting wires are removed completely, you have now electrically separated the tweeter and woofer from each other, while maintinaing the crossovers ( inside the speaker ) for each.When this is done, you can now bi-wire the speakers and amp, and use different kinds of wire for the lower frequencies and the upper frequencies, depending on your ears ( everyone hears a little differently, thats why there are so may makers of components, and wire ).

Why do we have crossovers?.....the tweeter voice coils ( the things that make the sound ) are made of hair thin wire. This wire cannot handle much power and if you were to put bass in to a tweeter, you would burn the tweeter out almost instantly. A tweeter is a very light, fast moving device which can react very quickly to high frequency sounds ( symbols, triangles, guitar strings....). Woofers are more rugged. They have voice coils made of heavier wire and are designed for larger movements that Bass demands. Subsequently, woofers aren't very good for high frequencies because they are slower devices.

So what do we do ?.....Keep the lows away from the tweter and the highs away from the woofer.....thats the job of the crossover.

In the event that your speaker has the crossover OUTSIDE the speaker box, you should check ( as always ) with the manufacturer of the speaker to see how it can be changed to suit your needs. Remember to always read and follow your owners manual. Good luck....Rob

Bass amp settings


For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.
