    Hi I have a TFX122M-AN monitor that suddenly will not power on. I check fuse and used a different power cord and all is good.

    I can't get a resolution about how to get it repaired despite submitting 2 tickets! The first response was go to the reseller which I did and its out of their 2 year warranty. Music Tribe has a 3 year warranty but you will not respond... I will even pay to get it repaired but don't know how to get that done.

    Hey All,

     

    I use a Behringer iNuke 3000DSP for my Mach 5 IXL 18.4 Subwoofer in a 12cu.ft box it is about 3'x2'x3' box ported. I was taking some measurements with REW abnd a uMik and had a partial brown out as I saturated the 120v line with too many things on it at the same time.

     

    Ever since then my Subwoofers readings in REW have been subapr under 20hz to 15hz. now beore the issue I could get a solid 80db from 15hz - 20hz easy so the sub is more then capable but after the brownout something is off.

     

    I was wondering what I can do to make sure the behringer is still performing at is should be? I took it apart to see if I could see any obvious damage to the electrical parts but I did not see any signs of electrical damage to any of the components..

     

    Now I tested with a Different AVR and had the similar issue so I dont think it is the AVR either. I also testeed the IXL 18.4 driver and it read 3.4ohms like the T/S specs stated so it probally is not the Driver either..

     

    The only thing I have not taken out of the equation is the amp and the U-Mik. I did try the A channel in the iNuke as it has a A&B Channel.

     

    Now in REW I can use the signal generator to make the tones and when I made the tones play below 40hz they all sounded and some vinrated the walls but now they do not. I was thinking maybe it is the amp as it is what powers it.

     

    here is the system specs for the Home Theater:

     

    1. Integra 40.3 Audyssey calibrated.

    2. iNuke 3000DSP all DSP functions besides limit turned OFF.

    3. Mini DSP.

    4. Denon 1040ci DVD Player.

    5. Sony Blu ray player.

    6. Mach 5 IXL 18.4 driver 12cu. ft. box..

     

    Now the sub is capable down to 15hz easy and I had the minis DSP Setup and it did measure @80db below 20hz to 15hz.. but after the brownout it does not do that know..  if it could be the amp is there any way to test it with an volt meter or how can I be sure it is not the amp causing my issue?

    I have a speaker that is wired using an nl4 speakon. 1+ 1- is wired to bullet tweeter 2+ 2- is wired to a horn.

    my pre amplifier would be connected to amplifier.

    Bullet tweeters on input A

    Horn on Input B.

    Can nx6000d be used to power both these using 1 nl4 cable from outout a or b? 

    I have ran it this way before using another amp but cannot remmeber the make of it.

     

    if the answer is no, how do i get nx6000d to run so input a outputs on A and input B outputs on B.

    I have read the manual but cannot work it out

    We are replacing the tried and trusted IPD series of DSP-controlled power amplifiers with a new, improved breed of raw power and ultimate control solutions. This move is part of a general strategic leap forward that will benefit you, starting…. Right now!  

    You probably know the feeling: You are planning some fundamental changes, but the time just never seems to be perfect for actually making the big move. But then something unforeseen happens, and suddenly everything aligns, which causes you to pull the trigger on opening a new chapter in your life. That was exactly what happened to us – both specifically when deciding to discontinue the renowned IPD series of power amps and introduce the IPX series, but also on a higher level, as we decided to turn our Swedish facility into a dedicated research and development power house that will be focusing entirely on what they do better than anyone: Design and develop unparalleled amplification and digital signal processing for the future!

     

    Making the Most of an Unfortunate Situation

    As is often the case, unfortunate events tend to occur in quantity. Obviously, 2020 was an unusual and challenging year on a number of levels. First and foremost, the global Coronavirus pandemic took us all by surprise and caused unfathomable human distress across the globe, yet the acute situation also taught many of us new things such as optimizing our collaboration-on-a-distance skill set.

    Fortunately, when entering 2021 it seemed like there was a good chance that things would gradually begin to move back to normal. However, the combination of the pandemic, natural catastrophes and a fire that had consequences throughout the pro audio industry caused severe supply chain problems and skyrocketing freight rates – not just for us, of course, but generally and globally.

    These were the elements that ‘suddenly aligned’ and gave us confidence that now was the time to make some real changes. Transition phases are always painful to some degree, but they are also necessary, and we felt wholeheartedly that it was absolutely the right thing to do – so why wait?

     

    The IPX Move into The Future

    While the IPX series looks very similar to the IPD series that it is replacing, there are indeed a host of improvements to be found under the hood. For instance, the DSP has been upgraded and is prepared to integrate seamlessly with future audio and control protocols.

    Along with sister companies such as TC Electronic and Midas, we have always been a first mover in terms of adopting new technologies, as well as developing them, and this case is no exception. We consider it as a huge benefit to audio professionals when manufacturers across the board agree on standardization and harmonization in order to make your job easier. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that IPX is your bullet-and-future-proof power amp solution. However, this fundamental change of the DSP design also means that IPX is not backwards compatible with the IPD series.

    Further, while specified at the same power ratings as the IPD series (1,200 W and 2,400 W), the new IPX series is more power efficient, and they deliver more power at lower impedance loads. And last but not least, they have a lighter environmental footprint due to their improved power factor load, making them more efficient in terms of sheer electricity consumption.

     

    The Collaborative Move into The Future

    As already mentioned, 2020 turned out to become a year of remote work optimization. However, since Music Tribe has been a global organization for decades, collaborating across country borders and time zones was definitely far from new to us. Along with other factors that pushed in the same direction, we decided to make the move for Lab Gruppen in 2021, ensuring that the engineering staff in Kungsbacka, Sweden, is now allowed to dedicate its every moment of attention to developing, refining, rethinking, improving and designing new products and cutting-edge technologies that will help you stay ahead of the curve.

    This means that production has started taking place in Asia, which may cause concern to some, but please rest assured that you will not experience any changes in terms of quality, sturdiness and reliability. The number one mistake Western companies make when moving production to Asia is more than anything to have missed out on doing their homework properly – on a cultural as well as a practical level. Well, Music Tribe has been present in the region for ages. In fact, far longer than e.g. Apple and other huge consumer goods manufacturers that we have all accepted as high quality vendors long ago. It cannot be stressed enough that this is not a new process of change for us, or a first attempt at dipping the toes in new waters – we have decades of experience with how to manufacture efficiently and reliably out of Asia. And perhaps most important of all, we have a proven track record of successful Pro Audio and MI brands to back our beliefs that this will indeed become very beneficial for all of our customers.

    At the end of the day, all that really matters is providing the finest audio tools imaginable, which in turn empowers you to focus exclusively on delivering stellar results as an passionate audio professional every single day – regardless of whether your field of work is within Touring, Venues, House of Worship, Corporate, Education, or other parts of the Live Sound and AV Install spheres.

    Good Morning, 

    I purchased 2 x iNuke DSP and I would like to hook them up to a DIY Home Theater Speaker.  The Idea is to use the Xover on the iNuke rather then building a passive crossover. My Question is:- Is it possible to have the woofers on Channel A with a 2 Ohm Impedance then the Tweeter @ 8ohm on Channel B ? Would that cause any issues ? Or effect Sound Output? 

     

    Regards,

    Etienne

    I am very new at this but try to have the best system within my budget. Ive recently added a Behringer NX6000D and 2 Lavoce SAN 184.03's to my surround sound  system which consists of a Denon AVR X4200W, klipsch RP-450C, 2 klipsch 280f, and 2 klipsch 41m. I am more interested in ensuring that the amp and subs are set up properly to get the most out of them. Is there a simple guide for setup of the amp?

     

    Thanks

    I find it strange lab don't offer patch panels for their amps... I use the PLM stuff exclusively and there's nothing better than a nicely labelled, perfectly made patch panel. 

    I'm a lab dealer, so yes I would buy one if they made one. Since they don't, I looked for an alternative. For anybody else that may find themselves looking, I give you one suggestion. It's a good one.

    Click this link and see  what I think to be a brilliant artist's work:

    Check out PP+

    For those too scared to click the link, google PP+ Patch Panels.

    No, I don't own the company. No, I'm not getting anything from them for posting this.

    It's a simple heads up that there is somebody making affordable and absolutely perfectly built patch panels specifcally designed for purpose. 

    I bought some. Gonna buy some more. You should too. 

    Music Tribe/Lab guys - throw this guy a bone and swing some work his way. He's not your competition, you don't make the products he does. There are plenty of your customers looking for these things and it's in your best interest to help them out. Steer them his way.

    Maybe a gentle suggestion/push/shove.

    Hello. have some question about setting isvpl in plm 10k.

    For example i have [email protected] (RMS) speaker.

    Then i want to properly adjust MaxPeak,RMS  limiters and also ISVPL.

    As i know - in common mode limiter settings in db are 20log(V/Vref)-amp gain - safety margin.

    For peak and rms V there should be different values.

    For example Vrms (of my speaker)=SQRT(2*400*8) because of crest factor 2 of sine signal.

    For Vpeak there should be another equation - sqrt(4*400*8) because test signal (pink noise) have crest factor 4.

    And finaly question - is Vpeak equals ISVPL threshold? 

    Or there is another equation for find this point?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi.

    hope you are well.

    My need : I am a mixer for movies, building my own stage. I want to power 3 channels (3xLF 3xHF) of JBL 4670D (https://jblpro.com/en/site_elements/4670d-spec-sheet)

    and 8 channels of Top speakers (Atmos) DKAUDIO P12C (http://dkaudio.fr/fr/cinema/3d-immersif/plafond/p12-c)

    Rest of surrounds and LFE are self powered. I am also interested in Dante integration + FIR Processing through lake for at least the front channels.

     

    Thanks

    Oh boy, where to start. Hi there!

     

    Okay, a friend gave me a NX3000D to power my passive sub and told me one channel was inoperable. Right now I have it set to "Bridge" mode using a RCA to 1/4" T/S cable from my subwoofer preout to input A on the amp. I'm using a Speakon to bananas connector from output A to my 4 ohm subwoofer, a RBH SV-1212NR, a passive sub. Everything is working.

     

    My question is about the channel my friend said was inoperable. In stereo mode he said only the B input/output works and there's no signal for the A output (in stereo mode). I have it set on Bridge mode using the A input/output and it's working well. Both green lights above the A and B dials illuminate when I play something. Room correction had me set the gain at about 11 o'clock on the dial. Does this mean I have the amp set to maximize output and have available full rated power, 3000 watts, to my 4 ohm sub? Have I done this correctly?

     

    Sorry for the rudimentary questions. I'm new to pro amps and still a little confused with the menus. Plus my friend added to my confusion telling me about the inoperable channel when in stereo mode.

      Paul_Vannatto If the one channel is not working, you will only get the power output of the other channel, even in bridge mode.
