      Hi Ross, 


       


      Welcome to the community.  The "S1803" at the beginning of the SN means March 2018.  You'd need to figure out the cutover date to determine if it's a V1 vs. V2. 


       


      EDIT: Based on Amazon "first listed date" of December 3, 2015 for the V1 and January 9, 2019 for V2 I suspect that's a V1.  Certainly not scientific by any means. I'd probably reach out to Turbosound to confirm the SN you have. 


       


      Hope this helps,

      Hi Ross, 


       


      The onnly way to reach any Music Tribe company these days is via the CARE portal.  You'll have to create an account and open a ticket.  You should get an auto-reply telling you someone will contact you within one business day. Be patient as that's more like a week these days.

      If you are in the US, you might also want to give Sweetwater a call. They may be able to tell you the V2 "release date" which would be more definitive. 


       


      Hope this helps,

    Hey all! New to this, please be patient. 

    I Just purchased a pre-owned VLTouch2. When I received it all of the presets have been erased and I’m wondering if there is a way to restore these? Are they downloadable once I have the unit up to my computer for updates? Any tips or tricks would be appreciated I am new to this piece of wonderfulness and my hands

      Hey @DblMoonChild,
      Welcome to the fold!  You can use our free VoiceSupport 2 software to update your Touch 2, manage presets, and download new presets from our Cloud library.  To restore factory presets, all you need to do is use VoiceSupport to "delete" whichever preset(s) you're trying to restore, and the factory presets will repopulate themselves.  That is to say, the first 200 preset slots can never be empty, they either contain their respective factory preset, or they can be overwritten with user presets, and deleting those edited user presets will restore the slot back to its factory preset.  Experiment lots, store your own edited presets, and also check out the additional presets you can download from VoiceSupport.  Cheers!

    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

    Just inhereted a nice pair of Revolution XT 8F's. There are no signs of the floor spikes or protectors anywhere. Where can I purchase a replacement set of said floor spikes as the speakers seem a bit unstable without them.

    I'm located in Scotland in the UK

    Thanks in advance

    Hi. I recently bought Tannoy 802 Monitors from a reseller and one of my monitors make this pop sound on tweeter when monitor is turned off: https://www43.zippyshare.com/v/9d4hHvwO/file.html

    1) Is that normal ? or I should send it back for repair or replacement ? 

    2) Do this pop sound damage the tweeter ? 

     

    PS: I tried to turn volume down and also to disconect from audio sources and also tried to change power source.

    Thank you vey much.

    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,

    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 2 Behringer MX882 Ultra Link Pro mixer splitters and the audio level LED display lights up to 0db on all channels with no audio input.  Slight hum audible in the audio output channels when audio is present. Need schematic of at least the power supply section.

      Ive tried everyway possible to a) contact Behringer directly, b) contact anyone who might have a similar problem, c) contact anyone who can supply repair parts for Behringer products


      All I get for my efforts is a total run around.  I have opened 5 support tickets but the
      Care Portal shows all of them as "problem solved"  I have never even come close to a solution nor received any feed back from anyone from the Music Tribe forums.  Does anyone really ever get help on this site?


      Right now it looks like I need a power transfromer for my Behringer MX822 but havent a clue as to how I would get one via the Music Tribe or the Behringer support web site.

      Found the problem!


       


      the 2 units Ihave were wired for 220V operation but had a US 120V plug installed.


      I rewired the power transformer for 120V operation and the LEDs acted normal.


      The issue was that the circuitry wasonly getting 10V DC to the circuit boards, not evenclose to the 18V it needed for the regulators to work.


      If you have my problem, read the units top cover and see what voltage it was made for.
