    I have  blown crossover.  I thought I blew the horn, but after replacing it, the scratchy sound cutting in and out is still there.  Can someone direct me where I can replace this part?  I can seem to find options for it.

    Hi,

    I have had my 2 EuroLive B115D speakers for a few years. i love them. just the other day i went to turn one on and the top speaker part (called 1.35" compression transducer in the manual/brochure) is not producing any sound only the bottom half of the speaker. it sounds like as if there if a cloth muffling the top speaker part. Does any one know if i can fix this at home somehow or not where i could buy a part to fix it? Thanks.

    Hola estoy a punto de comprar de segunda mano dos eurolive b1500d pro, por 500€. Veo que este modelo no está en catálogo, cuál es el que lo sustituye, porque el vq1500d parece más pequeño en potencia y el b1500xp es de más potencia.

    Me recomendáis la compra o mejor unos nuevos? Gracias

    Hello everyone,

    Would the signal output from a channel's balanced input using a TRS jack on that input be true stereo? I've been running the stereo left/right outputs from my guitar effects unit through the PPA200's stereo channel which has left/right inputs and it sounds beautiful. The thing is I'd like to use that channel for something else, hence my question.

    Thank you for your time.

      No, balanced TRS input is not a stereo input. It uses the same 1/4" jack. But the pinouts are different. A balanced TRS has pin 1 = shield, pin 2 = hot+, pin 3 = hot- (180 degrees out of phase).

    Hello all. I recently purchased the Studio 50USB studio monitors from a seller on Reverb. The package is an unopened package and the speakers were brand new warranty replacements. Initially, when I turned the speakers on, there was a repetetive clicking and the speaker turned on and off with the clicking every second or so. With some work with the power cable, I was able to get the speakers to stay on, however, now there is no sound coming from them at all. I was using the quarter inch input ports as well as the usb ports directly from my computer. Anybody have an idea of what the problem could be?

    TL;DR - Speakers are new but no sound comes out when powered on.

    Hello everyone,

    As there isn't an on/off switch for phantom power on the PPA200, not that I can see anyway, how does the unit know if a dynamic or a condenser microphone is being used?

      There's no magic at work. Phantom power will always be connected to the XLR inputs. This should not harm dynamic mics as long as they are wired correctly with balanced XLR cables.

      Thanks Rex - I was kind of hoping for magic but there you go.


      You say "should not harm dynamic mics", I'd really rather it was "most definately will not harm". I have an expensive Sennheiser dynamic vocal microphone which I wouldn't want to be fed with phantom power in any circumstance.


      Just out of curiosity, and if you know, why was no phantom power on/off switch part of the design of this unit? All my various other units with a phantom power option have an on/off switch or button - in fact the PPA200 is the only unit I've ever seen that doesn't have one.


      All my XLR cables are balanced.

      I would be happy to connect my Sennheiser, AKG and Rode dynamic mics to inputs with phantom. I would be less confident of unknown brands. If you are really concerned, you could get a phantom blocker .


       


      I don't know why the usual phantom on/off switch was not provided on the PPA200. We might guess that it was a design-to-cost decision.

      Blimey! A Phantom Blocker - I'd never have guessed such a device existed.


      Thank you Rex, you've been very helpful yet again.

    Hello to all,

    I've just bought the PPA200 and want to add a monitor speaker to my set-up.

    There is no dedicated output to add a monitor speaker, so I was wondering if a passive or active monitor might run from the headphone output. Would that work?

    Thanks.

      Hello Viv, welcome to the community.


       


      You should be able to run an active monitor from the PPA200 phones output. Some active monitors have 3.5mm stereo Aux inputs so you could connect with a cable like this one.

      Hello Rex,


      Thank you for your swift answer. I thought that might work.


      I've looked at a few active monitors and I'm limited on the amount of power consumption for busking.


      I'm running all my gear from a lithium battery and only a 300watt inverter so a passive monitor would be the ideal solution to keep the power load down. There is a mono direct output and left/right RCA outputs on the PPA200 - would a passive monitor work from either of these do you think?


      I've spent a small fortune (to me) on all the gear I already have otherwise I'd just go with an active monitor and buy a higher wattage output inverter and use the headphones output.


      Again, thank you for your reply.

      @buskerer 


      I'm afraid that a passive monitor will not work from any of those outputs. You could always go for a monitor with its own built-in battery. Something like Samson Expedition Express?

      Just as an update:


      I have a Roland Cube Street I originally intended to use on it's own for busking, but it's sound quality and flexibility leaves a little to be desired in my opinion, which is why I decided on a pa system. The Cube as most probably know can be battery powered so I'll use it as a monitor.


      In case anyone is interested I power my busking set-up with the following:



      This most probably isn't the place to include a list of the gear I intend using for busking but if anyone is interested I will do so in an appropriate place.

    Hi All,

    I'm thinking of getting a Behringer Europort MPA30BT to use away from mains power. However, I need to be able to charge it from 12v DC, USB or other DC supply when mains is not available. Is there a DC charging input on this unit?

    Thanks for looking, Geoff

      Hi Geoff @GeoffL 


      Welcome to the forum. The MPA30BT charges the internal battery from the AC input. Therefore the only way to charge it via battery is to use a sine wave type inverter.

      Hello Geoff, welcome to the community.


       


      There is no DC power input on the MPA30BT. It requires 100-240 V at 50/60 Hz. If that is not available, you should be able to charge it from a 12Vdc supply through a small inverter like this.
