The volume setting on the speakers has LITTLE to do with how hard you are driving them. Your source might be extra hot and overdriving them. Read the specs on the speakers and use a sound meter to check your level. The speakers, being only 12 inch, should fill a room 20 foot by 20 foot to about 95 to 100 Db which you are only allowed 2 hours in MAX to prevent hearing loss. At 6 hours you should keep it down to 85 Db SPL. I know several deaf musicians that were exposed to high sound levels in rock bands... a deaf musician is kind of washed up.

I'm running my Peavey Vypyr 15w through this cabinet with a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter and a speaker cable, and the cab is producing sound, but the volume is very low and stays the same at every setting


This is a VERY low level output designed for headphones and will not drive a cab directly, you'll need an amp, take it to line in of an amp and all should be fine (REMEMBER This is designed to drive stereo headphones so is a TRS Right,Left,Screen. If you plug it into a mono input you will probably be shorting out one side of the peavey's output so get a splitter.

Speaker humms only. what causes that?


Incorrect connections or volume settings.

• In powering up, mixer first then amp

• In turning off , amp first then mixer


If hum still persist, without the mixer connected

then speaker amp may need servicing.

I would try using another speaker to see if you can get the sound back, this will help you narrow down the problem, you can also use the effect send to feed anothe amp to see if you get the sound OK.

Hey, i bought a new pair of samson auro D415 speakers and i connect them in parallel because one of my main mixer outputs ain't working.but even if al my signal gains and fader levels are low,the peak...


Check only one active speaker at the mixer output and report the results.
Connect only one of the audio inputs from the power amp at the mixer output (and the passive speakers at the output) and report the results.
Sometimes (in parallel connections) there are interferences from the volume controls.

HOW DO YOU TURN DOWN THE HISSING NOISE


You can cut the treble gain some BUT most importantly is to send adequate signal to this speaker so volume level does not have to be set high when sending LINE LEVEL signals to it. Hissing noise is a product of the statistical noise that occurs in electronics. Running any device at high gain invariably brings up the hiss level. Managing thee signal levels is the responsibility of the sound engineer.

ALSO feed ALL interconnected equipment from the same receptacle or power source, even if it means running a power cable to a mixer alongside the snake. ALWAYS USE BALANCED audio cables whenever possible.

My Korg c15s has a lot of grating staticky noises when played ....I'm told it cannot be repaired as Korg no longer makes parts for this model?


I have a Korg C-15s and also experiencing loud crackling sounds when I turn it on. The problems seems to be either the sliding volume control or the amplifier itself. Honestly though, I believe the issue is the volume control. I opened my piano to get a closer look and attempted to clean the contacts on the volume. Unfortunately after cleaning the contacts, the crackling sounds became somewhat worse. After I turn the piano on, the volume control is generally rendered useless......volume set to low volume and the noise is quite loud and other times the volume control is set high and get very low volume crackling noise. No real consistency. The noise does diminish after a few minutes but so does the piano sounds to an inaudible level. There were a couple of instances where I turned it on and surprising enough, no no noise and perfect sound. For these reasons I believe the issue is within the volume control and not so much the amplifier. I have an electronics background and noticed that the volume control is very unique in design and is not something that can be substituted with another volume control from other sources.

My recommendation is to check the sound quality of the audio from the RCA L/R audio outs on rear of the piano by connecting to a stereo receiver. If it sounds fine you're in luck. If the crackling sound does not diminish after a few minutes like mine does, I would suggest disconnecting the internal speakers and using the audio out only. You can connect a pair of studio monitors or high quality computer speakers, preferably with a small subwoofer to deliver the full audio range and deeper tone of a real piano. I'm currently using a basic pair of Logitech computer speakers and is quite acceptable until I can afford a high quality set of monitors or relocate my piano closer to my high quality Yamaha receiver.

I hope this info helps a bit.

I have a rumble 100 bass amp which used to work fine until now! I've had it about 2 months and have only played it about a dozen times. Today, while practicing with a new band, 90% of volume got lost. Now...


It unfortunately sounds like a blown speaker. Try getting at the speaker and gently moving the cone with your fingers. If you feel a rubbing sensation you will most likely have to consider a new speaker. Make sure you get one with the same impedance (ohms) and the same or better power handling.
