  2. Hi All, I have been using a customized table which has sides etc to hide all the wires etc, unfortunately it is very heavy !

  4. Hi All, I seem to have problem with my speakers or do I ? I had all my kit out yesterday as I had problems with my main Amp during a gig on Saturday. The amp is clipping on the left side at low volume yet on Sat it was the left, so is it the speaker or the amp ? I decided it was the amp and thought I would run a few test with my second amp, What I found confused me. The amp worked okay but there is a difference between the quality of the left and right side. So I changed the speakers around, I changed the speaker leads, I changed the phone leads and even cut out the mixer a
  5. Thanks for all the advise. Geoffers
  6. Hi all, I have read a few threads on this site which say that some head room is advisable (larger amp than speakers) .Last night my main (newer amp and larger) let me down :damn: . Towards the end of gig, the left hand channel started clipping even when turned very low, so I turned the amp off. Fortunately, I use two amps and four speakers, so was able to complete the gig, surprisingly without any one noticing. My back up set of speakers are only 150 w each but have a good sound ( although heavy to carry !) I have decided to get a new amp and bin this one despite it only being
  7. Thanks to everyone for the advice ! I got my dj software and hope to buy a soundcard in couple of weeks. thanks Geoffers
  8. Hi All, I am thinking of making the move to pc djing and have been reading all the other threads which have been very helpful.

Thanks Geoffers

  10. Hi I have used front page to set up my web site, it looks okay but does not show up on any search.

    http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/wallbash.gif sorry I was being very thick not thinking to remove one of the speakers to find the size. okay I have removed the large round speaker and its 150 w 8 and a sign whick I am assuming means ohms. there are three tweeters and another horn does this mean my speakers are 150 watts ? if so does this mean the largest amp I can use is 150 watts per channel ? All advice gratefully recieved !

    Hi I bought all of my gear second hand in the summer and they guy I bought it from did not know what size the speakers are. They are big speakers with tweeters include in the case and they have a good sound, I have been using them with 200 watt amp.I want to buy a new amp and keep my other as a back up. I would like to buy a bigger amp as I always seem to have my amp close to full power. Is there any way of working out the power of the speakers from thier measurement ? Also I am not very technicaly minded and I do not understand the difference between ohms and watss per channel. Ple

I learnt a lot to. I did suffer from some feedback problems in the later part of the evening as the volume went up. ( I have never had this problem before) I have since been told to keep the singer behind the speakers, however I am concerned t
