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???!!!!)

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!


In Topic: Dead Amp!

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?


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 to the speakers anymore. Its a good bet that the last thing you connected is faulty/incorrectly adjusted/ switched off!!"

Simple i know, but if you follow that train of thought it really helps. Especially when you are technically inept like me!! wacko.gif

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.

How are you wiring in the crossover to the mixer?

You should be going Mixer (Main Out) -> Crossover -> Amps
It could be you also have some of the output channels muted? give us a bit more info on the crossover (make/model) and how you've wired it in.



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 like the high output side of the crossover has gone belly up. (Am getting a signal from the low outputs no problem.)
