    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.

    I have a new pair og Tannoy Legacy Arden. They came with some vax for maintenance. However it did not come with any instructions on when and how to use it. Could you provide some guidelines and tips?

      Hi, apologies for the delay in getting back to you, there is no set times or guidelines as to when to use the wax.  Personally i would just dust your speakers with a soft cloth andmaybe one or twice a year give them a soft waxing to keep the cabinets in a tip top condition.

    Hi,

    I am currently set with Tannoy RX8F. I Would like to ask what size of cable (mm2) will be enough to power them for 2 meters run? I mean 2x1mm2 or 2x2mm2 or 2x4mm2 etc...

      Hello Tsvetomir, welcome to the forum.


       


      For a 2 metre run, the 1.0mm2 cable should be OK. 2.0mm2 cable is theoretically better but you probably would not be able to hear any difference.

      Hi,


      Thank you for the answer. You might laugh but I currently use 4mm2 and I notice too much low frequencies...


      I think it's an overkill to use such a thick cable...shall i change it?

      The thicker cable should not cause a problem with the sound. These speakers can give too much bottom end in small rooms. If you have the space, you could try moving them away from walls and corners.

    I have the X32 Rack in use with the firmware version 3.11. Now I found the firmware version 3.12 for X32, dated with November, 8th 2019. The firmware 3.12 for X32 Rack is dated with July, 2nd 2018. Is that also the newest firmware, only with the wrong date?

      I think you are right. They changed some of the dates today. I noticed it when I was looking for firmware 4.0. I think it's release is immenent. M32-Edit 4.0 was released today.

    Hello!
    I'm interested in using Lake Processing LM-44 for my home audio stereo setup that required one crossover point at 200hz (high pass @12db and low pass @24db)

    I have few questions.

    First, does the LM-44 have built in volume control for attenuation?? Since the LM-44 has 2 pairs of analogue XLR outputs, can I assign one single AES digital input connected to the Music Server and set the crossover at 200hz with one pair of analogue output for above 200hz and the other for under 200hz??

    Thanks!

    I am looking at an NX6000, I need to know if it can accept and output various waveforms, like sine, square, sawtooth etc

    and what frequency range it has ie 0.1 hz to 25mhz,no details are inlcuded in the manual.

    Also how does warranty work if needing repairing? do I have to use couriers to send back?, if so I need a local dealer (I am in Doncaster, England)

      @Ozzie666 


      The Behringer um2 doesn't have balance outputs so there is no cable to make a balanced connection.

      Ohh I see... Thank you for your kind answer, if I may ask? What is the best way to connect Presonus eris 3.5 to my laptop? Should I look for a DAC with balanced output or go for Behringer um2 or just use the headphone jack and don't bother at all?

      How about an RCA (normal Hi-Fi stereo) cable? That's the easiest.

    I'm trying to set up my new equalizer but have discovered that the RCA inputs are a little too wide for the plugs! Which means that the plugs slip out of the inputs. Should I return it, or is there a remedy?

      Hi Gary ( @Ratnaguna ), 


       


      Welcome to the community. This is usually caused by a worn out cable not the input jacks themselves.  Can you take a picture of the plugs and jacks so we can have a look?

      When this happens to me , I take a pair of needle nose pliers or a pair of small wir cutters and put a slight kink/bend in the RCA plugs outer shell in order to get a tight fit.  The RCA plugs center pin usually fits tight enough to not bother with.
