    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.

      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?

      Thanks Rex you've been very helpful.

      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.

    Anyone else have a similar experience? One of my ip2000s started making some extremely audible cracking sounds in the high and mid-high sections. Removing all inputs, turning down the master volume and input gains had no effect.

    I applied a sharp percussive maintenance to the back panel and the behavior stopped and did not return for the rest of the night. Physical inspection of the amp section did not show anything out of sort, but I did reseat the input to power amp ribbon cable for good measure. 

    I'll update here if it happens again.

     

    Thanks!

    Jeff

    Customer support is unresponsive and I have questions. I am trying to replace power supplies for my QFLex16 m-1 and sb pairs. When we removed these from one of our spaces the power supplies were left behind. I have reached out to spare parts tickets, the customer service portal and anywhere I can try to get ahold of people but have had no luck. trying here...

      Hello Vincent, welcome to the community.


       


      The Care ticket is currently the only way to request technical support, service and spare parts from any of the Music Tribe companies. Did you get Care tickets raised? You should be able to see them through the Care Portal. Some people have missed responses because the emails were routed into their spam folders. 


       


      If you tell us the Care ticket numbers, we can get someone to check into them for you.

    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.

    I have had a pair of XT6F for a while but really struggling to get a satisfactory sound from them. They seem very harsh at the top end and have boomy bass. They replaces a similar sized speaker that did not exhibit any of this. 

    Tried positioning and follow as closs as I can the positioning from the manual but it even brigher if I use the severe toe in recommend.

    I'm getting to the end of my tether with them so any ideas welcome. They sounded so much nicer when I heard them in shop. So likely my room is the key but I can't change this.

      Hi there, no offence, do you checked the connection polarity? If it is correct you could try to avoid the proximity from any reflective surface, like windows or mirrors. I hope this help, best regards

    I am a happy owner of a pair of tannoy dmt 12, unfortunately a case has fallen and has been irreparably damaged. I decided to build a new speaker, since speakers and filters are in excellent condition. My problem is that I can't recover Thiele / Small parameters in any way of the speaker 3136GG. You could send them to me so you can listen to these beautiful speakers again. Thanks so much for your kindness.

      Hi @luchien ,


      Welcome to the forum. There is no polarity setting in the DSP (or on the back panel) - I checked. You will need to do that in the console output.

      Well I know Paul is one of the smartest guys I know on this forum but on the dsp crossover button  I believe you can change the polarity 180 for a cardioid use but I'm sure I'm wrong lol

    I have a pair of IQ15 speakers and wanted to downsize my 18" subwoofers to lighten the weight. My question is whether I can safely put an IQ15 on pole inserted into an IQ15B. My concern is whether there's a risk of it falling over due to both weighing almost the same.

      For those interested, I heard back from Turbosound and they stated I can place the IQ15 on a pole on top of the IQ15B. There are no issues with weight distribution and the set up would be secure from falling over.

    Hi, I got a Tannoy Arena Subwoofer from a friend for repair. I managed to get the amplifier board out of the magnificent(!) box and also got the power supply out. When on there’s 7.7V between CD- and CD+. If the amp isn’t in standby I assume that should be much more. 

    Things would get a lot easier from here if I got a service manual or schematics. Any hint will be appreciated! Tia Eduard. Power supplyPower supply
