Apr 4, Pro Tools , Reader Question , Tips comments If you ever venture into the world of external mic preamps to compliment the ones built into your audio interface then you may be wondering what is the best way to hook it up. It is a common issue, but an important one to address. Subtle but much more rich. One question…If you need more level into ProTools, do you increase the ART preamp output or the audio interface input? Set this to Line. Proper Gain Staging Now that you have your preamp hooked up to your interface, the last thing we need to look at is your gain staging and signal flow. The gain knob on your interface controls the preamp on that interface. If you have a line input with no gain knob associated with it, use that one. If not, follow this advice. Start by turning the interface gain knob all the way down.
Sub and amp hook up
I did try this recently with the AV amp The volume control on the AV amp is suppose to control the level on the remote amp, otherwise, how could you ever keep the system balanced? Consider this, if you use a power only amp with the AV amp, what controls the volume on the power-only amp.
1. Power off both the speakers and the mixer board. Position the speakers where you want them to be and lay out the speaker cable so that the excess cable is coiled at the bottom of the speaker.
All you need to do to lower Imedence in a speaker is use less winds of a larger wire, you dont need the complications if have 2 seperat voice coils! Dual voice coils is what makes a sub a sub, otherwise it would just be a normal woofer. True that you dont get Stereo sound out of the Sub, but it maintains the 2 seperate signals so that they dont get mixed. You got to remember when and why Subs came about. By adding 2 voice coils to a single speaker you can have a single Stereo Amp in your car, a single large Woofer and still maintain the seperate stereo channels.
This si why Subs have 2 seperate speaker hookups, one for left, one for right, they never mix. We dont really need Subs like this nowdays as everything is done all in a single inexpensive AMP and it utputs the 3 differant channels and keeps the 2 stereo channels from mixing. The Subs in 5. Where do you get this stuff? Subs are called subs because of the frequencies they produce, it has absolutely nothing to do with voice coils.
There were really no available dual coil subs until the late 80s when they were introduced to increase power 2 4 ohm coils could be wired as 2 ohms and driven by a high-end amp such as an Orion HCCA to increase sound levels. Subs almost always were and still are mono in cars because they are mostly designed to be used in PAIRS, just like tweeters, mids, and woofers. You can however use a blended sub channel combines sub freqs from both l and r channels to drive a mono sub from a standard multi channel amp.
Back in the 80s people didnt have money for multiple amps and there were no multichannel amps?
NEED TO CONNECT 2 AMPS TO ONE SUB, NEED IMMIDIATE HELP!!!
I have a much better understanding of ohm cooking. I have two combo amps. One is a Fender Superchamp X2. The one speaker out jack that the internal speaker is connected to says Minimum 8 ohms. The other amp is a Vox AC10 with a speaker out jack of 16 ohm. I found the Bugera TS
I think I’m settled on a pair of EV ZLX 12″ tops, and a ZXA1 Sub later I will add a second sub, and at some point down the road I’ll add a 3rd backup 12″ top, and a set of something like the Cerwin-Vega P-Series, 2 tops, 2 subs, 3rd top.
How to Bridge a 4 Channel Amp by Joseph Eitel Bridging a four-channel car audio amplifier will effectively double your amp’s output watts so that you can drive more power to your speakers or subwoofers. It’s relatively easy to bridge a four-channel amp as long as you have a very basic knowledge of car audio wiring and how to connect an amp to your car’s audio system. The most common application when bridging a four-channel amp is to connect the amp to a pair of 4-ohm subwoofers.
There will be four speaker wire terminals, or channels, which consist of both a positive and negative terminal with a screw-down clamping system to hold the speaker wire securely in place. Again, run speaker wire from the positive terminal of channel 3 to the positive terminal of subwoofer two. Finally, run speaker wire from the negative terminal of channel four to the negative terminal of subwoofer two. Tip Keep in mind that when bridging an amp, the resistance load measured in ohms is effectively cut in half.
For example, if you are powering a 4-ohm subwoofer with a bridged amp, the resistance load would drop to 2 ohms. It’s important to make sure that you’re amp is capable of handling a 2-ohm load.
How to Hook Up a Mixer to Built-In Amplifier Speakers
Speaker Connections for proper impedance match A note about amplifiers: You should always use the recommended load for your amplifier. However, if you must use a load other than the recommended load, here is a short guide. Most solid-state amplifiers would rather look at an open circuit no speaker at all than a load. Therefore, you can usually use a load that is higher than the recommended load.
Do not use a lower impedance load, as this could cause serious damage to your SS amp.
· 2. Run speaker wire from the positive terminal of channel one to the positive terminal of the first subwoofer. Use the wire stripper to strip about ½ inch of insulation from both ends of the wire, and clamp the speaker wire down securely in the amp’s terminal using the ://
Laguna Blue Pearl As armand1 said, it’s easier to ‘tap’ the speaker wires behind the factory radio. To do that without cutting or splicing the factory radio harness, get two after-market harnesses: Wire the these two straight through so your radio sees all the wires like before , and tap off between these two harnesses to send 2 or 4 of the speaker outputs to your LOC or amp s. You’ll need to make sure both harnesses have all 14 wires. Most of the ones out there lack one of the illumination wires.
Without that your stock radio won’t light up. Here’s a where to find one with all 14 wires: Forward and Reverse Radio Wiring Harnesses Lots of useful information here listed at the top of this forum’s sticky: Stock head unit information — pin-outs, aux inputs, and more Quote: Originally Posted by pudnana does the LOC just wire in series with the rear speakers and still allow the rears to work off of the headunit?
Can i hook up car subs to a car tv, dvd, player that has no hookup for it? and how
They may get hot due to the extra stress and work at. You should look for an amp that is watts at 2 ohm. I recommend wiring the sub voice coils in series this will produce 8 ohms and then when you connect your amp the subs will be running in parallel and cut that down to 4 ohms.
· The remote for the Marantz also worked the Arcam (and vica versa) so when I turned upthe volume, it turned it up on both amps at the same time, which got me a big telling off from another poster because I was only supposed to be turning up the AV amp ://
Again depending on how new the player is it will most likely have a HDMI output This connector handles both video and audio and makes it very easy to hook up. Go into the receivers menu and find the setting that assigns the input connections see manual for information. In the Players menu you will need to set up a few things that normally are not set properly.
First find the video settings in the players menu and select the “aspect ratio” Most new TV’s are what is called If you have an older more square stile of display CRT Tube type you should select 4: Next, under the “Audio settings” you need to select two very important things. These composite video cables come with three cables that have rca connectors on each end that are color coded Red, Blue and green and attach to the same colored connections on both the player and the receiver.
Hook this up to the connector labelled Digital optical. Hooking up satellite or other set top receiver we will call these Set Top Boxes or STB ; If you receive cable or satellite you likely have some sort of receiver that acts as a tuner. The issue here is that some people dont want to have the receiver on all the time if watching TV so you sometimes have to make a choice; go directly to the TV with the output of the STB or go through the receiver first.
Next run an audio cable from the STB to the receiver using optical or coaxial to the satellite input of the receiver this will let you listen to the audio of the STB through the speakers of your system in 5. Using the pre-outs of a receiver, what are they for? Pre-outs labelled in Pink in photo above are not always available on all receivers with the exception of the sub out Pre-outs are line level signal rca jacks that allow a person to hook up an external amplifier to your system.
So instead of using the built in amps of the receiver you use your own external amp.
Can you use a Subwoofer in place of a woofer?
Hope you’re only using one amp, not both for one sub. The cap has to be charged just before you supply power to it. It’s best to install it as close to the amp as possible.
Apr 23, · Can I hook up 30 amps to a 50 amp plug (2 for hot wires and 1 for ground) while the male end of the RV cord will have 4 prongs (2 for hot wires, 1 for neutral wire and 1 for ground). Using #10 wire to feed a sub panel. Back feeding a 30amp breaker. The inspector will shoot it down every time, and no sensible electrician would wire it.
Certified Quality Entertainment 3: If it’s too bass heavy, turn down your booth, not enough bass, turn it up a little. That’s more of a trial and error than saying keep them at the same level. As long as you are keeping your signal clean no red on your line meters and no red on your master meter, no clip lights blinking on your speakers you will be fine with adjusting as you need Ulrich von Hurtem 4: You need an active crossover.
I use and recommend a pre-owned Rane AC22B. Don’t just Y two outputs to one input, to get mono for the sub. Hooking up sound systems: Your powered sub, likely has a low pass filter, but it’s still important to high pass the tops. Because I don’t have a crossover now and it sounds just fine Ulrich von Hurtem 4: By not asking your tops to produce frequencies, you don’t want or need them to make, you free up cone excursion for the sounds your tops are good at.
How to setup 2 Speakers, 1 Sub, 2 Channel Amp?
Amps one for each room. That is a very good way to do it. Now the only way with just those 2 Connect: Amps that you would get TV sound in those rooms would be if your TV sound is hooked into the inputs of one of those Connect:
· 2 amps to 1 sub? – I have 2 of the Memphis Ds. unfortunately they are the reference series and cannot be strapped together. Is there any way I can safely run both amps to one sub? Basically, I wanting to run a single sub of the New Orion HCCAs. They need about RMS. My amps ?tid=
In reality, a lot of these variables are mutually exclusive: If you want maximum power output, be prepared to pay more for the drivers and sacrifice some frequency response. Keep these things in mind as you read over the next sections. A Note on Speaker Selection Don’t skimp too much on the speakers: However you can have all of the above qualities without spending a fortune. A word to the wise:
