    I'm interested in the Behringer NX3000 Power Amplifier. What is the RMS Continuous power output of this amplifier into 2, 4 & 8 Ohms? Is the amplifier 2 Ohm stable? What is the Peak/Maximum power output also at 2,4 & 8 Ohms? Do i need an equalizer for this amplifier? I am interested in the Behringer FBQ3102 Equalizer, Is this equalizer compatible with this amplifier, and is it a good EQ to match this amplifier with? Can i run this amplifier at 2 Ohms continuously? Will that cause any damage to the amplifier? Can the amplifier be run in mismatched loads/impedance, for instance if i want to run channel 1 at 2 Ohms and Channel 2 at 2.67 or 4 Ohms? I'm interested in the 220-240 Volts variant of this amplifier, Do I need a voltage regulator for the device, since AC Voltages tend to fluctuate world wide? Or is the amplifier designed to withstand voltage fluctuations without issues? At maximum volume, what would the power consumption of the amplifier be? If I buy the 220-240 Volts Variant of this amplifier, Can it work on the FBQ3102 Equalizer if it's 120 Volts? I can buy a step down transformer for the EQ so it can plug into 220-240 volts just as the amplifier, Would that be okay for the amplifier to be 220-240 Volts and the EQ to be 120 Volts? Will they work together or be any compatibility issues? Or can they damage each other in any way due to this configuration?

    I've read online that there was an issue with the Behringer iNuke Seriess, Especially the iNuke NU3000 where they go into protection mode, also I read that there were some Schottky Diodes issues in the iNuke Series amplifier, Were these issues addressed and corrected the the NX Series amplifier? The NX Series is the newer version replacing the iNuke, right? What is the input sensitivity of the NX3000 @ 2,4 & 8 Ohms? What's the difference between the red and amber light on the unit, one says limit and protect, isn't there a clip light? Can tell me how to match my gains between my equalizer, source unit and amplifier? Is there any documentation?

      Hi Mark,


      OK wow lots to get through here, let me take a deep breath aannnnnnnd...


      What is the RMS Continuous power output of this amplifier into 2, 4 & 8 Ohms?


      2 Ohm - 2 x 1500W
      4 Ohm - 2 x 900W
      8Ohm - 2 x 440W


      Bridge 4 Ohm - 3000W
      Bridge 8 Ohm - 1500W


      You need headroom though, its allways best to aim for a MINIMUM of 20%, so take your loudspeakers RMS power rating and ensure it is AT LEAST 20% lower than the above figures.


      Is the amplifier 2 Ohm stable?


      Yes in normal operation, No in bridge mode.


      What is the Peak/Maximum power output also at 2,4 & 8 Ohms?


      You can assume this to be double the RMS rating.


      Do i need an equalizer for this amplifier?


      I would reccomend some kind of loudspeaker processor yes, but it really depends on the application. What speakers are you planning on driving with the amplifier?


      I am interested in the Behringer FBQ3102 Equalizer, Is this equalizer compatible with this amplifier, and is it a good EQ to match this amplifier with?


      I think you are better off with a loudspeaker processor such as the DCX range, the FBQ would work as an overall system EQ.


      Can i run this amplifier at 2 Ohms continuously?


      YES! (But not in bridge mode)


      Will that cause any damage to the amplifier?


      NO! (Unless you run it at 2 Ohm in bridge mode or over load it by driving speakers with too high a power rating)


      Can the amplifier be run in mismatched loads/impedance, for instance if i want to run channel 1 at 2 Ohms and Channel 2 at 2.67 or 4 Ohms?


      Yes you can do this.


      I'm interested in the 220-240 Volts variant of this amplifier, Do I need a voltage regulator for the device, since AC Voltages tend to fluctuate world wide?


      No you shouldn't need a regulator, unless you are somwhere with truly unstable power! 


      Or is the amplifier designed to withstand voltage fluctuations without issues?


      As long as they are in the 220-240 volt range you will be fine. It's generally worth testing your power source before running a show!


      At maximum volume, what would the power consumption of the amplifier be?


      This is a very subjective question, you are better off looking at an average as music is inherrently not maximum power all the time. 1/8 rated power is pretty standard. 350W is a sensible figure.


      If I buy the 220-240 Volts Variant of this amplifier, Can it work on the FBQ3102 Equalizer if it's 120 Volts?


      If the power sent to each is from a seperate and appropriate source then yes, the FBQ will immediatly blow its fuse if given 220 volts and the amp will simply not turn on if its given 120 volts.The line level outputs will remain the same voltages so you can feed the 220 volt amp from the 120 volt EQ if thats what you want to do.


      I can buy a step down transformer for the EQ so it can plug into 220-240 volts just as the amplifier, Would that be okay for the amplifier to be 220-240 Volts and the EQ to be 120 Volts?


      See above answer, be careful please


      Will they work together or be any compatibility issues? Or can they damage each other in any way due to this configuration?


      Again, be careful! The power input will not affect the line level output or input voltage.


      I've read online that there was an issue with the Behringer iNuke Seriess, Especially the iNuke NU3000 where they go into protection mode, also I read that there were some Schottky Diodes issues in the iNuke Series amplifier, Were these issues addressed and corrected the the NX Series amplifier?


      I am confident that this is resolved.


      The NX Series is the newer version replacing the iNuke, right?


      Kind of yes, its a new range of amps.


      What is the input sensitivity of the NX3000 @ 2,4 & 8 Ohms?


      For rated power into 4 Ohms its 0.775 volts or 0dBu


      What's the difference between the red and amber light on the unit, one says limit and protect, isn't there a clip light?


      Amber = careful now your close to limit
      Red = Please turn me down! I am limiting and will go into protect mode shortly.
      Loss of audio = I am now in protect mode, you hurt me.


      Can tell me how to match my gains between my equalizer, source unit and amplifier? Is there any documentation?


      Research gain staging, generally you want to feed the amplifier with as "hot" an input signal as you can without clipping. This will ensure that when you come to turning the amplifier gain up your input signal is nice and far above the noise floor. Amplifying a low input signal means the noise floor is closer to the level of the input signal and you end up with a noisy output as you are gaining up the noise floor.

      Annnnnd breath out...

      Hope that helps

    How do I connect the mixer 802 to Bose PA speaker pro S1 to sing karaoke. 

    thanks

      Hi Vuphoto,


       


      Simple! Just connect the main outs from the mixer to the inputs on the Bose, use ballanced TRS jack cables for best result.

    Hi all,

    I know this has probably been addressed but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for, so here goes.

    M32R set as 32in/32out, DL16 connected. Everything feeds into Logic, I can hear live playing and hear playback of Logic Output (channels 1&2), I have these routed to last bank of inputs on Midas.  This is what I need:

    1) How can I record into Logic, post fader?  I want the EQs, Comp, Gate, effects... ect...   OR... Can I monitor with effects from the board while sending clean signal into Logic ?

    2) Playback- A) Best solution for multiple musicians hearing a multi-track recording session?  DP48?

     

    Any other solutions or help setting up the best routing is much appreciated.

     

    Thanks

      You can do either.  Selecting Local in the Routing : Card tab only gives the direct out signal from the preamps. Switching those to a combination of Out 1-16, Ultranet, and Aux In, will enable you to define where the signal is tapped. If you use a mixbus (or two) for monitoring, you can select where in the channel the mixbus taps its signal.


       



      2) Playback- A) Best solution for multiple musicians hearing a multi-track recording session?  DP48?


       





      DP48 is a good solution. A lot of people will use pairs of Mixbusses for monitoring in conjunction with a tablet/phone app (MX-q, Mixingstation) for the musicians to build their own mix.

      @Gletterle 


      Try using the Ultranet menu/Outputs 1-16 menu for the sources of card out 1-32. Set them up as direct outs of each ch. That way you can choose the tap point for each ch to your daw. Using "local" card outs takes the signal at or just past the preamp, basically flat. You can set the outputs of all the daw ch's to be stereo out 1+2 and use aux remap set for card 1-2. You can then monitor the daw tracks on aux 1 and 2 while hearing your live inputs 1-32 in their normal ch position. For daw playback, that will be the usual card 1-32 for the mixer inputs.

      @Gletterle 


      Under Routing : Inputs , you could set the Record button (for basic tracking) to have 32 (or 24)  inputs as mic preamps and 0 (or 8) inputs as DAW playback and then set the Play button (for over dubbing) as 8 inputs as mic preamps and 24 inputs as DAW playback. It depends on your desired working style.

    I'm trying to create a repair request for a Tannoy HTS101XP, but every time I submit the form it says "encountered an error. Please try again". I've tried three times, so, urm, that doesn't work. What do I do now?

    Hi. With the Linn Selekt room optimisation there is an opportunity to specify which speakers are being used. Unfortunately Linn have not tested the Ardens but do have optimisation profiles for Canterbury, Berkeley, Westminster etc. Would it be ok to take any of the 15" driver models and use this as a starter? Any advice please as I love my Ardens and the Selekt but have limited technical knowledge. Many thanks

      In general, Linn's optimization profile should be replaced by Berkeley, which is the most similar, given the age group before 1980 and the enclosure type.


      This is a Linn profile (closest) that optimizes the air spring force of a similar enclosure and the Stiffness relationship of the speaker cone.


       


      Before 1980


      Arden                                                                                                                       


      Berkeley 


      After 1981


      Canterbury15


      Westminster

      THAC0 Hi Terry, did you make any progress with this?

      I also have a pair of Tannoy Legacy Ardens and would like to use them with Linn's Space Optimisation technology. I understand from Linn that they supply their dealers with software to aid them in performing measurements for customers, but it would be useful if Tannoy could submit measurements for the whole Legacy line directly to Linn themselves.

      Can anyone from Tannoy confirm whether this is possible? As Terry states Linn currently support some Tannoy speakers already, specifically:

      Tannoy Canterbury GR
      Tannoy Canterbury SE
      Tannoy Kensington GR
      Tannoy Mercury M3
      Tannoy Mercury V4
      Tannoy Precision 6.4
      Tannoy Revolution DC4T
      Tannoy Revolution DC6T
      Tannoy Revolution XT6F
      Tannoy Sensys R
      Tannoy Westminster Royal GR

      It would be great to see the Legacy speakers added to that list (https://www.linn.co.uk/technology/space-optimisation#compatible-speakers).

      Thanks

      pendragon Hello. I have heard nothing further on this and set my Linn to use the Berkeley model. The optimisation setup is quite simple and having run it once I simply tweaked the parameters until I got the sound I wanted! It would be so much better if Tannoy and Linn sorted this out but in the meantime I am happy!

      • Legacy Arden Speakers and Linn Selekt
        THAC0 While Linn had already told me they provide software tools to dealers I followed up RE: manufacturers are they told me:

        "We are more than happy to provide manufacturers with the tools to measure their speakers, if they wish to do so."

        It would be good if Tannoy could work with Linn to supply them with official measurements for this line. I'm assuming they must have already done this for other loudspeakers since so many Tannoy models are already listed on Linn's website. I dunno what I need to do to encourage them to measure the Ardens and other Legacy models!

        But thanks for the update!
