    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

    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

    I am considering buying NuQ 118B-AN subs and I have a question regarding that model. In the picture presenting back of the speaker there are 4 bolts in each corner (16 in total). Are they indented for wheels? Does the speaker come with wheels in the box, as the iQ18B does? Manual nor product page says nothing about attaching wheels, so I am a bit confused.NuQ118B-AN_P0B4K_Rear_L

    Thank you in advance for clarification!

      @MateuszI'm not an employee but those holes are for the wheels and I would be very surprised if the wheels were not in the box-I would protest loudly if not

    These two lights now only come on, when I turn on the power for my speaker. Why? Thanks for an assistance in advance.

      Do the come on briefly then turn off, or do they stay on. If it is the latter, you have a hardware problem.

    We're using a pair of B115Ds as our PA system for our three piece band that plays rock covers in bars. We only usually put one vocal mic and a guitar DI through it, but occasionally we mic up the bass drum (but we're looking to buy a sub for that).


    My question is on where to set the level control. If I was using passive speakers with separate power amps, I'd have the power amps on full (ie 0dB) and then control the volume from the desk. With the B115Ds, does the same principle apply? Shoud I have the output set to Max and then control volume by limiting the signal from the desk? I guess the quustion is whereabouts on the dial is 0dB? What has confused me is the marking that says "Line" and then "Mic". Am I risking damage/distortion if I put a line level signal inand have the level set way into the "Mic" region of the control?Capture.JPG

      The best way is to first set a good gain structure on the mixer, set the output fader to 0dB and then raise the gain on the speaker to get the required volume level. Setting the speaker gain too high could result in distortion with line-level signals.

      Certainly yes to Rex's reply. But as a rule of thumb I have found that with Behringer mixers and various powered speakers I have found the 12 o'clock position to usually be a good starting point.


      P.S. Why are the latest posts not word wrapping properly all of a sudden?
