If you use 1/4 inch cables they MUST be TRS cables (balanced lines). Guitar cables that do not have the third contact (ring) will have buzz and hum. Use either XLR or TRS cables. Also power the speakers and mixers from the SAME receptacle as the speakers.

How can I reduce white noise / hissing I'm getting over the mic on a Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB setup?


Hi, you didn't say if the mic actually passes sound? The C-1 is a condenser Mic & needs phantom power - switch on the rear of your mixer. If that's no help, what happens if you disconnect the mic, then turn the levels back up? Still hissing or gone? If it's gone then it's the Mic - must use a 3 wire cable, preferably XLR so it gets the phantom power. If the hiss is still there without the Mic then sounds like the mixer is faulty - try some of the other channels..... How loau is the hiss - just in the background or as load as a vocal "one, two" test? A few things to check anyway...... Good Luck!

Loud buzz/hum started on jbl eon 1500 powered speaker one side only after power cut off and sudden power back on makes same noise on it`s own as well as with mixer etc could this be a transformer...


For some reason the soft on protection circuit has failed. it is not a simple fix and would require the amplifier module to be removed from the speaker to assess the damage.

I have a mackie cfx 16 mixing board.My problem is that , the only way I can get a good signal to the led's for each channel (0 db) is to turn the gain up so high on the channel that it constantly...


No reason to worry about getting signal to the LED's... you set the trim gain so the loudess sound or signal that can happen barely clips or is slightly less. That is the starting point. Watch videos on mixer setup on YouTube. DOn't worry if their mixer is different as the principles are the same.
Mixer fadrs should be around 80% up when system is balanced. ALWAYS use BALANCED cables... eithrt XLR or TRS.

Hi, when using the gain control on my amp I get a buzz and an 'osilating' sound. I've tried several guitars and leads but still the same problem, any suggestions?


Hi.

If the amp is working, then most of the time the buzz is given by a bad grounding. Test the amp using different wall sockets, and possibly test it in a different home (there may be an earthing problem with the home network). If the problem goes away, then it was the wall socket or the home power network. If the buzzing is still there the problem is with the amp. Check the earth connection at power cord and psu and test the amplifier's PSU components. Check also the audio connections inside the amp (the back of the female jack input sockets). A small contact in there will result in a loud buzz.

This sounds like fret buzz caused by improper setup of the guitar. Likely the intonation needs to be set and the string height... possibly a truss rod setup as well. Take the guitar into a shop for setup unless you are adept at setting. There are a couple videos on guitar setup on YouTube, however do NOT try a truss rod adjustment yourself.

Hello I recently bought a jbl eon 315 to amplify my roland td9kx2 drums. when i connected it, the volume was really low. Far to low to practice with a band, let alone gig with. I only connected one mono...


I know this is late, but... I ran into the same issue. Apparently on some models, there is round hole further to the left than the square on the diagram in the manual. You have to stick a paper clip or similar object in and depress it. It would be nice if they would tell you that in the manual. I had to call JBL.

I don't understand how to use the 'tone' controls


Watch vidoes on "mixer setup". Don't worry if they are not your exact model as the principles are essentially the same among the various types. EQ controls for the channels are "flat" when they are all set to 1 o'clock. The lower one reduces or boosts the bass, the next the midrange and the high the trebles. SOme have a midrange EQ frequency which adjusts the cnterpoint of the midrange frequency. Leave this at 12 o'clock until you get familiar with the rest if your unit happens to have that extra control.

Been looking everywhere for this... i just hooked up my PMP6000 to my brand new JBL EON's 305 (non-active), stereo (one cable for A and B) using Speaking to 1/4" cable. My output level was also VERY...


The JBL EON 305's are 8 ohm speakers. The PMP5000 wi;; produce 400 Watts per side into a 4 ohm load (600 Watts peak). Into your 8 ohm speakers, the peak current will be halved while the voltage remains the same so you ACTUAL power per side is 200 Watts. It is hard to know how much you expect to get out of the amp. This power would fill a venue of at least 2000 sq ft. If you need more sound, try borrowing another 8 ohm speaker for each side and parallel them with the EON's as a test. That will double the power and add 3 Db more of sound. Your main slider should be around unity typically. This amp is a class D switching type (very efficient) and runs on +/- 70 volt rails. giving about 45 volts RMS output. At 4 ohms, this is just over 10 amps giving 450 Watts... at 8 ohms this is around 5 amps or 225 Watts.


Please read my tip on Fixya about the ground hazard of channel A when using 1/4 inch cables out of the PMP units... essentially the BARREL of the connector from channel "A" is the HOT,... NOT the tip of the PLUG. Ground the barrel IN ANY WAY AND YOU FRY CHANNEL "A" AMP !!!
