  1. Hi guys and gals sadly i hung up my headphones at christmas and retired from DJing after 28 years. its sods law that at my last gig one of my active fbt maxx 4 speakers packed up. it was working in the afternoon while i was setting up but as soon as i turned it on again in the evening the green light lit up for a second and then died. i tried the usual changing leads and various wall sockets but with no joy. the only thing i can think it is is a fuse on the internal amp. as they are sealed units with gas injection moulding i didnt want to unscrew the amp before getting advice first.
  2. Hi wwfc and welcome to the forum. the advice i was given when i bought my first pair of actives 4 years ago was to set the bass and treble to 12 oclock and the volume to 1 oclock and then use your mixer to set the required volume. even though actives cabs volume can go all the way round to roughly 6 oclock its best not to push them this much as it can damage the cones and over power the amp especially if you are playing for 5-6 hours at a gig. jim
  3. now i thought that was funny tongue out icon :dan: :toot: 999,661
  4. 999,967 will be the price of a gallon of petrol by the time we finish this thread.
  5. 70s gig saturday night. this has been my first gig since new years eve. ive been doing my residency for over 12 years now and have just been undercut by a cowboy. as it was my regular i only charged £175 which is £75 off but this cowboy has offered to do their discos for £100 and as you can guess im not a happy chappy.
  6. the latter Gary. if you look at the last picture it shows the AW-FX screen. you have a drop down menu on the left to choose what you want to change and then just press the colour on the main screen.
  7. you can deactivate any of the lights. youve got the alien head on the lid, the mousepad,the touch sensitive controls and the light pipe around the edge of the screen. i know they are an expensive gimmick but it was the speed of the machine that made me buy it.
  8. its only available on the m15x & m17x the lowest spec m15x costs £951.75 that includes: 15.4" WideXGA+ 1440 x 900 LCD (720p) with Clearview Technology Alienware® AlienFX® System Lighting Genuine Windows® Vista Home Premium 256MB NVidia® GeForce™ Go 8600M GT Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7100 1.8GHz 2MB Cache 800MHz FSB 1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SO-DIMM at 667MHz - 2 x 512MB Single Drive Configuration - 120GB 7200 RPM (8MB Cache) with Free Fall Protection 8x Dual Layer Writer (DVD±RW, CD-RW) AlienCare 1-Year Free Phone 24/7 and Collect & Return why,are yo
  9. yes you can do a pulsating colour change but sadly not dmx :) and just to clarify, yes the capri would defanately be cheaper. i hope your all sitting down as the total price was £2,100
  10. Hi williamrobb88 is this the card you tried. X-Fi Soundblaster i havnt actualy bought the add on to it yet but im sure i was told the adapter would work. jim
  11. Hi guys and gals as the title says, the beast has landed. in other words Alienwares new M15X Laptop. if your looking for a new laptop and youve just won the lottery then look no further. with all the posts lately showing off all the new LED lighting effects i thought id show you something different. the AW m15x is the fastest laptop on the planet (at the moment). the m17x was released yesterday for pre orders only. this laptop has a 2.8 ghz processor with 4gb of ram and 2 graphics cards. the on board graphics card and the indipendant 512 8800gtx graphics card. it also has dual

    70s Music Advice

    lips inc is a strange one to work out. ive got the original 12" but it is stored away with the many thousands of records ive still got and it would mean ripping my shelving apart to search for it. i always thought it was the earl 80s but on the sites i checked it varied from 1976 to 1993. strangely enough the site i took the date from said varified next to the date and that was 1993. oh well,time to dismantle all my shelving in my room tonight.

    i did ask a couple of weeks ago about some of your suggestions (great minds think alike) but was told NO its got to be mainly cheesy disco and we are not allowed to take requests. as its a charity do i will have a bucket behind the decks and if anyone is willing to part with some more cash i will play their requests. anything to make more money for the charity is my main objective. was also thinking of asking some of the girls to bring some waxing strips with them and for a tenner they can wax any willing participants. ohhh the pain tongue out icon
