      Hello Analiza, welcome to the community.


       


      We should be able to help if you tell us the make/model of your mixer, TV and powered speaker.

      You should be able to connect the 1202FX Main outputs to the BP10 channel 1 inputs using TRS/TRS cables like these. Without knowing the model of the TV, it is not possible to say how it could be connected to the mixer. Some TVs have two RCA output connectors for sound. If so, you could use a cable like this to connect to one of the 1202FX stereo inputs (5/6, 7/8, 9/10 or 11/12).

    I have the umc204hd playback ports 1 & 2 wired to a fostex sub woofer with its passthru outputs connected to two mackie mr 524 speakers. I'm using Hauptwerk to supply the audio to the umc204hd. I  have the latest version umc204hd asio driver, with it's output set to the max. The audio volume is lower than expected even with the speaker's volume controls set to the max. Any suggestions are most welcome!

    I've submitted two tech support requests for the umc204, both were closed with no apparent update from support that I can find...

      Hi David ( @dlgabry ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  I've seen a few posts about the RCA level being lower than expected our of the PB outputs.  I have a 404HD which also has balanced PB outputs and I've always used those.  I think it depends on the input sensitivity of the amp. In situations like this I usually put a stereo line pre-amp in between the output device and the input of the amp.  Something like this should work fine: https://www.amazon.com/STEREO-LINE-PRE-AMPLIFIER-15DB-12VDC/dp/B00I01ZNUS.


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

    Hi,

    Someone to tell me what is internal wiring of DC-8?

    I think to bi-wire them (2 runs per speaker), but dont know what gauge and cable type to looking for.

    The amp is Marantz PM11S3.

    Thank you,

      Hi, Use a thick multistrand cable for the LF and a good quality solid core for the HF to yield the best results. The amplifier sends exactly the same signal through single or bi-wired cables. The difference comes in the separation of frequencies at the speaker end of the cable. The internal components (crossover) of a speaker sends the high frequencies and low frequencies to the correct drivers/tweeter. Even though the difference is minimal, many audiophiles claim this bi-wiring method increases the stereo separation and perceived level of detail.

      Hi Chris, welcome to the community.


       


      They look like the glue spots that hold the connections between the voice-coil and the flexible leads on the back of the cone. They are present on most loudspeaker cones but are sometimes hidden by dust covers.

      Thanks for the reply Rex. And I apologize for no formal intro to the community. Yes I thought that was the area where wires from voice-coil connect. Those spots were not visible before. When I turn Amps on those areas are warm and pliable as though melting, like a short or something!!?

      @C-liv 


      Voice-coils do get warm when producing sound. If they get warm with the amps on but no music playing, I would worry about the amps. A short in a voice-coil would severely reduce the output - and is unlikely in two drivers. High-frequency oscillation in the amps could cause excessive heat in voice-coils.

    I have an old pair (40 years old!) of Tannoy Berkeley speakers. They have the 12" dual concentric speakers. Sadly, I now have a great deal of distortion in one of the speakers I'm not sure if these speakers are even available anymore. Does anyone have an idea of how I might fix/replace one/both of these speakers?

      Hi, send mail from Japan. I also have a old Tannoy.


      Your case is 2 way buy new one or repair.


      Even if the old speaker is distorted, it is difficult to answer because we do not know whether you are the same distortion, but the treble or bass or both, most often the edge supporting the cone deteriorates (always due to gravity For example, the voice coil relative to the magnet pulled down) does not maintain the correct position.
      It's actually more complicated, but from the experience of JBL LE8T, this is probably the one thing that's wrong.

      cost is only in Japan, from UK is much more, you should consider first my word.


      anyway my mail is usefull for you very grad to me, RGDS

    Hi, 

    I am very novice with audio but usually once I can play with things I'm very good at learning. I inherited a DEQ2496 and some other components. But there is no way for me to tell in what order I should hook them up in. For example, the amplifier, receiver, etc. If you could send me what order to hook things up, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks.

    I have made a basic setup using tv audio-aux out for music-source and microphones for vocals. I found music was noisy. So, I did lot of debug and the summary is as below:

    I started using only 1 channel out of 5-10, say M, keeping all other chanels mute i.e. all channels from 1-12 are mute except M. Even then I get quite noisy output on my soundbar. Source of music is youtube karaoke track from TV audio aux-output (of course TV audio is muted). Only weak point in connection I can't debug is the 3.5mm-male to 6mm-male cable or 3.5mm-female to 6mm-male converter. I have checked tv audio out using RCA cables to my soundbar and the music is perfectly alright. So, source is perfectly fine. Assuming the cables are alright (as chances of cable and adapter both being bad are low), its the mixer XR12. I think its my settings (.scn) as microphones sound alright but when music is entered through same mic-channel, noise is there. Any suggestion?

      Hello Anand, welcome to the community.


       


      What type of connector is the TV output? If it is a stereo 3.5mm socket, you would need to use a cable like this to separate the two channels and connect the 6.35mm mono plugs to two adjacent channels - e.g. 5 & 6.


       


      If the TV output is RCA sockets, use a cable like this and also connect to two mixer channels.


       


      In both cases you should stereo-link the two channels in your XR12 setup using XAir-Edit.

    I run the sound at church and know very little about what I am doing. We have had this mixer for about 1.5-2yrs. The issue has been on and off but continues to get worse. The mixer generates its own WiFi that we connect to with an iPad. Very often the iPad will not connect. Sometimes it won't even be able to find the XR WiFi. 

    We have tried a few different troubleshooting ideas and nothing helps. There is nothing else (phone or computer) trying to connect to the WiFi. We have also tried other iPads. What am I doing wrong?

      Nigel67 The XR16 internal wifi uses the 2.4GHz frequency which is the most common and it could be that with all the mobile phones around, etc, the frequency is becoming log jammed. Have you tried using an external router which also uses the 5GHz frequency. This also gives the advantage that you can place the router higher up as having the antenna low down will also affect the wifi range. Please see this video that may be helpfiul.

      • Behringer x air 16 not connecting to ipad
        Fbch I will try that this week. I have an Ethernet cable run to the sound board but I do not have a computer over there. So if I connect the mixer to my modem, I can connect to the app via the church WiFi? (Like I said, most of this goes over my head)

      Hi Fbch. many apologies for the delay in getting back to you. For some reason I only received the notification that you had replied this morning. How did you get on connecting to the wifi. I would advise probably using a separate router rather than the church wifi. if you don't move around the church, have you thought about getting an adapter for the ipad so that you can connect it directly to the ethernet port and charge at the same time. You can purchase Lightning to ethernet port adapters which also have a power adapter as well. A long as the ipad isn't moved around a lot for the cable to be pulled out, then this would probably be your most secure connection followed by the external router.

    Hello, Can anyone help me out with a user manual on the Voicelive Touch? I lost mine in a move. I noticed they do not have it in english on TC Helicons website. Thank you in advance!
