    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  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.

    We have an upcoming conference with 60 participants in an overall space of 105' W X 18' D X 10' H.  Orientation may switch with screen and speaker along short wall.  Spoken word only.

    I wanted to find out if this system might suffice for this volume of space?


    advTHANKSance.

      Hi Pavneet ( @usonianhorizon ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  It should work just fine although you'll want to consider proper speaker placement. Those room dimensions are almost a hallway so I definitely would present from the short wall.  Assuming the audience will be sitting in chairs, you'll need about 10 rows of 6 chairs each which puts the back row at least 30 ft from the front row. No problem for a 500W PA. 


       


      I'd recommend you get a pair of speaker stands and also consider the ULM wireless mics if the presenter isn't standing at a podium. Most presenters, particularly those with less experience, prefer the wireless freedom. However, you need to make sure to place the speakers far enough forward so the presenter (and mic) never get in front of the speakers. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      Thanks for your detailed reply, @KenMitchell .


      Yes, we would like to use ULM mics, but haven't found an update to the dongle weakness problem posted on this video (suggested on the Behringer product page):


      Behringer ULM Ultralink Mic problems at Northern Beaches PA Hire


      Plus, I am not clear on the difference between the 200 and 300 series mics.


      Regards.

      RichardYClark Basically the 200 series use the USB dongle as the receiver. And yes it does stick out if connected straight into a USB socket on the back panel of a Behringer powered speaker. Answer. Use a short USB extension lead so that it can be kept flat to the back panel with Velcro or similar. The 300 series comes with a proper receiver rack with analogue audio out like any other traditional wireless mic.

      RichardYClark To put your mind at rest I only thought of it as I answered your post. I have been using it sticking out and liable to damage. Doh!

    I sent back a Samson VX8.1 line array pa unit that was not working properly and decided instead to buy a Turbosound IP1000 which I rec'd 10/12/2019.  I only ran the IP1000 a few hours to practice on my Roland RD-2000. The rear metal plate where inputs plug in, gets almost too hot to touch.  Should I be concerned about internal heat build up as I don't see a visible cooling fan nor any air vent ports.  On the Samson VX8.1 I returned, plus many other models I've researched, do have a visible cooling fan and or air venting with some having possible non-visible internal fans. On this blog somewhere, I read someone was asking IF there was an effective way to retrofit a cooling fan solution for their speaker.  I do "know" that excessive heat does in fact break down electronics over time.  IS there any internal fan or any air porting/venting in any of the Turbosound Inspire IP1000 thru IP3000 models? I like the sound I'm hearing, I'm also thinking about pa system longevity too.

    I bought a subwoofer THRUTH B2029A (fairly used) on eBay, and after carefully reading the manual and following the voltage selection procedures, I powered on the subwoofer. After awhile (5min) I discovered the woofer was seriously heating, and shut down after some minutes. I thought it was disconnected from the mains but not. I troubleshoot (checked and replaced the fuse) but it was not coming up.
    Later I discovered the toroidal transformer is faulty.
    Now I want to replace the transformer, what’s the specifications I should be looking for.? And what’s the voltage that enters to the PCB of B2029A?

    Hi, I have a pair of Eyris 2 floor standing column speakers - which are truly magnificent and have been for some years now, but, I am not so sure that I have placed them in the best position - specifically, what distance from the wall should I place these rearward facing bass reflex ported speakers?

    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.

      @buskerer 


      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.
