  1. Punter-"Put something on we can dance to". DJ-"any suggestions?" Punter- "Errr, no." or my alltime favourite Punter - "I know a song which will get evrybody up......." If you have never been in this situation, whatever they suggest do not play it! Its usually out of character with whats currently playing with people on the dancefloor, the main age group present, and usually lots of other things too. (Is anybody thinking "that happened to me too, and i agree???!!!!) Bob
  2. Might be a bit late with this, sorry , but for future ref, bought a great album off i-tunes called 101 dinner party songs. As the title suggests there are 101 tunes on there, all suited to be played at low volume while people are stuffing their faces. It was very cheap and i just connect up my iphone to the pa and let it play! Running length is plenty long enough. Google it! Bob
  3. Yes, i now have a spare amp! Oh well, i often thought about getting a spare one anyway just in case.... And the moral of this story is? BUY NEW CABLES PERIODICALLY AS THEY DO NOT LAST FOREVER!!! And buy some spares too! The thing that helped me most in order to fault find, was a paragraph from an article i found on the internet, which was very simple and obvious. "Unplug everything except the speakers. Start with the source of the music and make sure that is giving an output, then carry on connecting/adding your components and cables until the music does not get t
  4. Well, I have now found the fault. A pair of faulty cables. A pair! There must be only me and mr unlucky of sods lawville who this could happen to....has anybody else had two cables ( xlr patch leads, xlr one end, jack the other) go down at the same time, leading you to think that it must be equipment failure? Aren't I blessed? Dear me I do not believe it. Bob
  5. Sorry for quote reply with no reply attached, bloody Iphone! Anyway, yes it is all connected properly (mixer mains to crossover, crossover to amps. Low signals to subwoofer amp and highs to mid range speakers amp.) It has actually worked in the past, sounded very good as well! The cross over is an L2 Audio X0223V item and it is about 2 months old, its been used twice. I am going to check that everything works as it should directly from each of the amps, that should then tell me that it is the crossover unit that is faulty and not something else (hopefully). Sounds to me lik
  6. Ok. Further to my Dead amp problem..... I have bought a new amp. Still got the same problem. No output to my top speakers. I recently bought a crossover.........could this be the culprit? I know all 4 speakers work. When the problem raised its ugly head originally i was setting up for a gig, so being short for time, i plugged the speakers directly into the amp (as before the cross over was fitted) and it worked. (albeit i only used two speakers ASSUMING that one of my amps had died....) MMMMMM.... So, is my best course of action to check that the new amp, my other newish amp and all
  7. Thanks for that. To be perfectly honest, as I was typing my question out, it got me thinking that I should replace it anyway. I probably would not trust it again anyway. It's amazing how writing something down helps you to think more clearly! Thanks anyway, eBay here I come! Bob
  8. Does this sound (A) Terminal (B) Expensive © Stop messing about and buy a new one? Warrior IS600 amplifier, approx 6 years old, bought new initially. When power switch is turned on, there is a click from the amp, the fan keeps running but there is no sound output. (power on indicator light bulb blew ages ago, so there are no visual clues.) Is it repairable? Is it worth it at that age? The only reason i ask is that if anyone has experienced a problem like this and it turned out to be nothing more than a blown fuse..........
  9. Ok, crossover fitted........... UNBELIEVABLE............. :Thumbup: Anybody out there running subs and full range speakers and using seperate amps for the full range and subs,(which i believe is called Bi amping...) buy an active crossover. Do not think about it, just buy one. (I bought a cheap one just to try, £69.00 including 2 XLR cables, best £69.00 i have spent in ages.) :good: :good: :good: The difference is quite frankly stunning. It sounds exactly as i wanted it to sound like now. Very crisp highs, proper chest thumping ba
  10. Thanks Nik, I was hoping someone would come back with an answer like that. They are doing their job. Brilliant! Ok, roll on the x over and i will report back! Bob
  11. Ok everyone, had a fiddle with all eq's etc etc. Sounds a lot better now. Am definetely going to invest in an active crossover though. Am I right in thinking that no proper volume as such comes from the subs? With the volume at 3/4 on the mixer I could put my ear very very close to each sub without any discomfort at all. Is this right?
  12. Nik you are absolutely spot on there! 30hz to 200hz it says on the mixer knob! The last few gigs i have done the knob has been up at 200hz and there is another knob that says min-max. This knob was at max. I am going to try the hz knob at halfway tonight and see what difference that makes. I think a crossover is going to be the way to go. Thanks to all for fantastic input. (if you forgive the pun...) Bob I am doing a gig tonight
  13. Illegal downloading, well, i suppose we have all had varying degrees of association with that. I have got to say that i use i-tunes and play straight from my I-phone through the PA system. I have heard some examples of illegally downloaded music and the sound quality is not the best. So, for me, its usually legal downloads, ripped from CD mp3's or CD's.
  14. Its near enough! (Blu Cantrell- Breathe) Let it BREATHE - Hootie and the Blowfish.
  15. Thanks for that! Hope the head is ok this morning! Leeds eh? My home turf! Now i have got my head round it from everyones helpful comments i feel i can explain my problem a bit better. What i am actually trying to do is make the subwoofers louder and punchier if possible. At the moment they seem to be only playing the really really low frequencies, and the noise coming out of them is just a very very low "wumf wumf" with no kick to it at all. I am going to adjust the low pass knob on the mixer and see if i can let some higher low end frequencies through. In your post you s
