This speaker is not an active one. This means that it hasn't integrated amplifier, so you need an external one. The cable from the amplifier goes to the speaker. Remove the woofer in order to get access at the inner parts and check these points:

  • In case that there is a crossover present there must be a burned out coil or capacitance
  • In case the cable from the female jacks at the back panel goes direct to the woofer, there must be the woofer destroyed or the cable disconnected. Check the cables, it's less expensive than to replace the woofer.
Post me back if there is a crossover in use or it is direct connected and any other points of interest you came up, in order to guide you further.
In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.


An external equalizer will not help this at all. The problem is likely within the amp (feeding the main speakers), the connections from the board to the amp, or the speakers themselves. In other words, the answer would be "NO." Best of luck!

Sound keeps turning off after ten muients


I've had this problem with other sound equipment. For me, it was a heat issue and there was an auto shut off feature to save the unit from over heating. I would especially think this is the case if it turns back on without problem after another 10 minutes of being off.

You could try turning off phantom power if it isn't needed to run your mics. Or making sure it is in a spot that allows maximum air flow through the head.

Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate!

How can i get more volume on my onstage monitors thru my mackie 2404 vlz3 mixer or what is the proper way to connect the monitors


Without more information of your speakers and amps we can't really help you. The Mackie board puts out line-level signals and that should drive any connected amp or powered speaker to the full capability. Make sure you are using BALANCED interconnect lines either XLR or TRS cables. Use of TS unbalanced cables costs you 6 DB and also noise pickup. Make sure ALL your gear, amps, speakers etc are powered from a SINGLE receptacle or power conditioning module. Normally you will use the AUX outputs of the mixer by way of TRS cables or balanced lines in a snake to power amplifiers onstage which then connect to the stage monitors. If you have powered monitors the returns of the aux to the stage go to the powered monitors. A heavy duty extension cord brings power back from thee stage power to the mixer.

Just bought a Harbinger HX121M 2" Monitor, from Musicians Friend it did not come with a booklet on how to wire into my sound system it has two 1/4" jacks and a strange round plug about the size...


If you don't know how to connect this... well we don't either because you did not tell us what your sound system is. The larger plug is what is known as a "Speakon" connector and is a fairly reliable speaker connection that is used now. For your use you will PROBABLY use either of the 1/4 inch jacks with a cable from the amp that will drive the monitor(s). If you have multiple monitors you will daisy chain them using the 1/4 inch jacks and SPEAKER rated cables creating a string of speakers with input going into one and an output from the same one to the next speaker and so on...USUALLY you will be limited to two speakers per amp output...

I have recently acquired an XR600B . I printed out the documentation. Conversely to what I have seen answered here, it looks to me like they are suggesting the best/most powerful output will be acheived...


The speaker connections are on the BACK and are "Speakon" connectors... These are special plugs and these apparently can also accept 1/4 inch plugs. It appears that the MINIMUM impedance should be no less than 4 ohms, NOT 2 ohms. One of the back connectors is for the mains, the other ois for the monitor soeakers. The FRONT connections are line level which doi NOT drive speakers,

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.

I have speakers plugged into my phonic powerpod 820 right now but I want also to have the output of the mixer to go through an instrument amp, is this possible? If so, where do I connect the instrument amp...


Hi,
Yes it's possible. I'm assuming you'd like to use the keyboard amp as a "monitor". In which case, take a 1/4inch TS (instrument cable) jack out of "Aux Send" into the input of your keyboard amp. Make sure the keyboard amp is turned up to a good level and that the Master SEND is turned up on the Desk.
Now you can make your own "monitor mix" for on stage use without effecting the F.O.H mix by turning up the aux pot (knob) on each channel you use.

You can use the CTRL ROOM output also, but make sure it's not giving a "Powered Output" from the internal amplifier in the mixer as you will damage the keyboard amp.

Bought a powered monitor as it said to do even though I thought it was weird as you usually use a passive monitor with a power amp. Purchased Kustom 10" powered monitor, hooked it up to monitor...


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 will need at least a 24 channel mixer to give you spare channels. You also need an active crossover and a snake. The advice you need is too much to include here so I am including some links:http://mixonline.com/live/FixIts/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_sound_mixing, http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/tag/outdoor-concerts/,http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/, and http://www.scribd.com/doc/11435651/Beginners-Guide-to-Mixing-Sound. You may need more monitors than you are planning on and you might consider in ear monitoring.

Phonic Helix Board sound problems


You don't specify which model Phonic mixer in question.
Is it a powered mixer ? And are you plugging your speakers into the speaker outputs ? If it's not a powered mixer and you're plugging speakers into the Line Outputs, you're not using a power amplifier between the line outputs and your speakers - this won't work.
If it is a powered mixer and you are plugging speakers into the speaker output connectors and still getting little or no sound, check your speaker cables and the speakers themselves by plugging them into known good amps.
