  3. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I have been researching some of the ins and outs of XLR cables. I have a decent understanding why they are better than a unbalanced RCA cable. What I am a bit confused about is the bare wiring itself. I have seen snakes that are about 5' to 20', but none as long as I need. Plus having the...

    Hello. I am sure this is a super newbie question, but I just can't figure it out properly. So, let's say you have to active speakers. Each speaker has 1 AUX input, two XLR inputs and one XLR output. Then I have the computer/or bluetooth adapter that only has 1 AUX output (3.5mm jack). I want to...

    Hey guys, So I've set-up my new mackie MR624 monitors to my computer using a 3.5mm to dual xlr splitter. The sound works but half of the source is missing. For example, when I listen to a song the instrumentals are fine but the vocals are turned all the way down. I've checked the balance...

    I have heard alot of good reviews about this amplifier and yesterday someone offered me this amp for 50 bucks. I accepted it and I'll have the AMP tommorow. However I do have a question. The A-500 has a 6.3mm jack, RCA's and XLR's. My preamplifier is the NAD c740, that one only has rca outs. So...

  12. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi All, I just purchased a Marantz pre/pro combo (AV8802A, MM8007, MM7705 and Pioneer ELITE BDP-88FD) and I am wondering if the brand/type of cable really matters? I am using this set up for a home theater (7.4.4) and I will not be using this for music. When I look the price of cables the...
  13. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi! I recently purchased four genelec 8030B speakers to use for my home setup where I work in sound design. I thought I'd take a gamble and buy an "xlr to mini jack cable" to plug into my macbook pro rather than having to buy a whole i/o box. Unfortunately it seems this gamble hasn't paid...

    Hey everyone, Last week I got these speakers from a friend. He didn't know what to do with it and they were standing in his garage for the last five years (2x RCF compact 100w): imgur.com/CNdXyTB and imgur.com/qYw4S3V (those are links but I don't have 5 posts yet...) I'm a total noob when it...
