  1. cheers for that megasong, never knew you had to do risk assessments for them. makes you think twice about using them.
  2. Hi all , just looking for a small hazer for dance floors 10m x 10m , would like just enough so I can see the beams without annoying people ... Any recommendations would be appreciated. Haze scent ??? Is it dangerous / related to cancer or has times changed , are there any safes ones out there ??
  3. Ended up buying db 915 actives , Turns out the 715s are only 400rms which is well hidden in all descriptions I have read . Crafty these speaker mobs
  4. good shout on the db speakers , the altoblack 15" sounded good(though a little light on bass) but they are far too heavy and mounting on a pole is a no no, I listened to the db 715dx opera speakers 700w and was suprised how good they sounded and how light they were and eneded up buying.
  5. yeah thats the ones , might go check them out as i did like the sound of the ts115a ....., will give them a dumbell lift as well cheers j http://www.glasgowsoundcentre.com/bargain.php#black
  6. hi , got a chance of a pair of alto black 15" speakers for a grand , 1200w rms ! .... have you heard these by any chance ? im guessing i will get more power out of these than my 400w altos even though i cant seem to find the db rating. cheers j
  7. cheers for that , some good info in there and very much appreciated , speaker shop is it then . cheers j
  8. interesting , for someone thats keeps his eye on a db limiter every week im suprised ive never really looked at db readings on speakers, .... now then .. the 515xt have a 132db rating but only 625 rms ,... so does this make it louder than the 700rms 129db rcf ? , jeeez , and they say football is a funny ole game haha . is it just sound quallity you dont like on the jbl ? or have you heard any other horror stories as i thought jbl would be very reliable, if so i suppose im best to go and give them a listen and see what i think . cheers j
  9. cheers for that , yeah like the look of them but just a bit too pricey for me , i have a resident place and only do maybe 10 mobiles a year so dont wanna go too expensive, how about these i seen , do you think they would give a bit more power than the altos, cheers j http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121280149954?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  10. Hi all , I got some alto ts115a speakers last year and as good as they are they are just not powerful enough for me ? For some reason I am alway clipping them , and when the sounds starts to fade on them it takes forever to get the sound back to the stage where you basically need to turn them off ?? ( any advice on that would be nice too:) I would like just a little more power and have a grand for a new pair of actives , 15" ones for the times I leave the boom box at home but still have a bit oomph. I was told to get jbl eon 515xt but have read some bad bad reviews from djs ???
  11. Cheers for the advice and help , will give the settings a go, cheers j
  12. cheers fester , i should of said i had it at the half way position 0db to start with, its when it started its muffled sound that i turned it down. should the mixer master be high with the channel volume sliders low or should the mixer master be low with the channel volumes high for best results
  13. Cables are good , got 4 year warranty with dv247 so should be ok for a return .cheers for help. It scared me that much I'm gonna get rid of the 15" bass bin and get a spare speaker instead (what i can fit in car reasons) , never want to go through that feeling again ....gut wrenching. Can I ask u what setting do you have your gear on ? Ie speaker volume knob on back , master on djm600 mixer and volume slider. Should the volume knob on back of speaker be as low as you can get away with ? Right now my speakers are on quarter strength ,master on mixer at no1 ( of 10 ) and Cha
  14. ... you know its hard to tell , it defo sound like it but maybe it just happening to one sounds like its both when your behind the speakers ? ..... can it happen to both if its defo not the mixer or cd players as i changed both and it still happens , cheers j
  15. hi all , i have a couple of 15" 800w active alto speakers , the last 2 discos i have done have had the same problem... after an hour into the gig the speakers suddenly lose all treble and sound muffled and horrible, if you turn it down the good sound comes back again after about 20 seconds, i only have the speaker knob on back at 25% power so im not blasting them..... scares me every time. any ideas what it could be ? cheers for any help , jason
  16. cheers again , will dig out the idiots guide and have a look which i should have done in the first place :)
  17. Hi all, got my 2 actives speakers running from my active bass bin outs xlrs....what volume level should all 3 be at using the volume button on the back of each one, ie should the bass bin be at full volume and the speakers half way, or should bass bin be half way and speakers be at full volume, or should all 3 be full volume and just control from mixer ? Cheers for any help
  18. cheers for help guys.... i was guilty with the iec cables aswell , ive got a sticker on the cables now with what bit of kit it is meant for, makes life easy
  19. Hi all, just got a djm600 wirh euro 2 prong type plug on it, I have cut this plug off and stuck a uk plug on, it works fine but it has no earth wire yellow/green on the cable, so the plug just has the blue and brown wires wired up..........it might be working ok bur I would like to know if this is saf e to use like this?? Cheers for any help
  20. Thanks for that, where is best place to buy a decent protector then, had a look on eBay but just cheapos on there,"......... One more question. :). I have the 2 ts115 active speakers and I have only room for 1 boom box in the back of my civic.... Should I buy the alto 15" active or should I spend an extra 100 pound on the 18" active...will it make much of a difference ? Cheers again jas
  21. sorry my mistake the speakers are only 800w max , the rms on the speakers are 400w and the rms on the bass bin is 600w ( alto ts115a and 15inch active subwoofer) . so am i right in saying 400 + 400 + 600 = 1400 dived by 240 = 5.83 ........... so i can use the 3 of them in one 13amp socket and probably fit my mixer ,decks and radio mic in there as well ?
  22. cheers for that,so i need to keep my lights on one socket as long as its not over 13amps and 1 for speakers, mixer/decksand radio mic and 1 for the bass bin so i need at least 3 wall plugs , should be fun in some places, better get a few 25metre reels and a bucket full of duck tape, cheers for help guys.
  23. thanks for that, if the lights went out due to a bulb blowing would it be the fuse in the power bar/gangway extension or a trip in the venues fuse box ? also would i be able to plug my 2 x 1000w max power active speakers and 1200w max active bass box into one socket ? or do most djs split the gear into 3 or 4 sockets, cheers jas
  24. been adviced by a pro dj friend of mine....naming no names :) that i should get a conditioner/power surge protector for all my delicate gear...... my question (s) is do you really need one doing pubs and clubs? has anyone ever had equipment fail due to not having one ? would a 6 or 8 gangway with protection do the job? my thinking is his gear is worth 10s of thousands of pounds and a lot larger than my little numark/american dj outfit :) any help appreciated
