Question about Allen & Heath Xone-22 2 Channel Dj Mixer

1 Answer

Only half the volume on the left channel of the mixer. Why? :(

I have an almost new Xone 22, macbook, ESI Gigaport interface, good RCA cables, and 2 XLRs running from the mixer into powered speakers. The volume of the left Deck on the mixer is only half as loud since yesterday. Is there something wrong with the mixer or its inputs? I'm using brand-new cables and powered speakers. Please help :(

    Thanks all for checking out. It's ok now! Basically, outputs 1 and 2 on the interface weren't working properly! What solved the problem was using outputs 5,6,7,8.

Does the left meter do the same thing? If the meter matches the right one, I would suspect the volume potentiometer on the powered speaker. Try exercising the volume knob. There might be some oxidizing on the potentiometer.

Indeed i would suspect something around your Final Output semiconductors, and any associated resistors?
You really must obtain a service manual, here there are the troubleshooting steps required to isolate and hopefully allow repair of your unit.
Look for any discolored components etc, check if any are overly hot... use a temperature probe on suspected components. Freeze spray may also be useful in diagnosis.
Use your eyes & nose to isolate the bad burnt overheated components, I sometimes use a straw up a nostril and selectively go over suspect parts, and "Sniff" to try and detect the overheated smell... it works.

Usually the connector that is board mounted is the problem. I would OPEN the unit as there may just be broken solder at the connector inside. If the connector requires replacement, find one at Digikey.com by searching for "power connector coaxial".

Hint: In the future install one of those little lamp switches that are in a little plastic box with knurled knob sticking out the sides. ONLY break ONE wire from the adapter to avoid getting the connections reversed. Since the wires are smaller than lamp cord, tack solder the wires to the piercing points of the switch .

SOURCE: Hi there. When I power

Make sure ALL interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or power conditioner. Do NOT use separate recptacles at opposite ends of a romm for example. Run power extension back with your snake. There may be a failure in the unit. Since it is so new, exercise your warranty... do NOT risk voiding the warranty. Do verify that your power is clean.

SOURCE: I would like to buy

Cases are being sold on Ebay, new, from several sources, and if you can't find one specifically listed for your unit, contact the sellers as they custom build them. That is a big unit... expect to pay around $150 to $200 for an ATA type case for it.

Here is an example for a Heath/Allen 420. http://cgi.ebay.com/ATA-CASE-ALLEN-HEATH-ZED-420-ZED-420-ZED420-MIXER-/400127078772?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d296eb174

I have bought from them before myself and there are others on Ebay so shop around... You can contact the companies and ask for a specific one and DO compare the size to your unit that they specify as all the companies do not accept returns...

I get a static buzzing noise out both speakers. it stops if I hold the plug cable or master out cables? turntable wires are grounded. help!


If this is stopping when you grab a connector then you have a bad solder on the connector. a short or break in the wire or a ground is bad.

How do you connect tape deck to pmp 4000


Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

Hello,

Carbon track on fader 1 is open because of wear or just broken, if you are getting sound then the ground carbon track is out but certainly the problem lies in the pot.

Behringer mixer Eurorack UB802 is losing partial stereo signal in one channel. When I record (audacity software) I can hear both channels but displays one channel. Is it my computer's audio jack t


Sounds like the output cable from the 802 is not correctly pinned to your input on the computer. Fred is on the right track but you may need to take it a bit further.
It may also be helpful to use a Pro USB audio interface such as the Digigram UAX220v2 (line level version).
If you wish to use the computer's on board sound card consider an IHF/Pro interface that converts balanced audio to unbalanced , and the proper cables. Two 3-wire balanced 1/4-inch from the 802 to the left and right inputs of the interface (XLR Male), then RCA (Red and White) to a 1/8-inch TRS Plug cable onto the the computers audio input.
Henry Engineering's Matchbox HD comes to mind.
Good Luck.

Have a Behringer 1202 Xenyx FX, balanced cable into a new windows 7 PC and keep getting hiss. When I raise the gain, mic or master volume the hiss is more awful. my internet broadcasts sound awful. what am...


You are running your balanced cable into a windows 7 PC? What interface are you using... not the line input on the PC I hope as it is NOT balanced... it is Stereo input with UNBALANCED input. If you tie the mixer using a balanced to 1/8 inch balanced connector you will get plenty of hiss since you are driving the stereo channels oppositely. For high quality, get a good audio interface that runs on the USB of the PC. If you can tolerate a bit of noise but wire it correctly, then you will need to use two UNBALANCED lines out of the mixer for L and R and merge them to a stereo 1/8 inch plug for the PC.

Hope you guys can help... I have a laptop Karaoke system. I connect from laptop to 6 channel mixer to speakers. I use a stereo phono to RCA from laptop to mixer. I am experiencing a buzz coming through...


Yep! Get a decent audio interface that attaches to the PC with a USB connection and uses BALANCED lines to your mixer. I use a UA-25EX Roland/cakewalk as an example. (about $200 and there are cheaper units such as M-Audio Fast Track MKII ) Note these interfaces BOTH record and playback with two channels for stereo.
Essentially the audio board that is in PC's and Laptops are too near the switching noise of the processor and some of that is just bound to get into the audio lines as they don't even have balanced audio lines from the computers. Make sure you use either TRS or XLR balanced cables from whatever interface you get. Also connect ALL interconnected equipment to the same power source or receptacle. You can try to reduce the buzz with the mixer EQ's with what you have, but that sacrifices audio quality.

What exactly do I need to connect a Mackie 402-VLZ3 to a Macbook Pro ? Where can I buy the cables? Thanks!


The internal audio systems in the PC's are inadequate for high quality work. You should get an external audio system that attaches via firewire or USB to your MAC. Then use balanced cables from the mixer to this audio interface. There are MANY different audio interfaces... Search the music equipment suppliers in the "recording" section of their catalog...

How to connect mixer to a crown power base 2 amp and speakers


just use the main left and right outputs of the behringer to run xlr (3 prong balanced) to 1/4 inch (looks like a big headphone plug) cables into the inputs of the crown amp. the mixer has the xlr outputs and the amp has 1/4 inch inputrs, sop the cables will have to reflect that on both ends. run the outputs of the amp (rca outputs, i believe, you may have to get a rca plug to 1/4 inch jack adapter, and then use a 1/4 inch speaker cable) to the inputs of the speakers, again, the amp has rca outputs and the speakers will likely have 1/4 inputs, so you will have to address that wil an adapter. have each speaker in its own channel.
