Speakers keep cutting out,

Postby Stoney » Wed Apr 30, 2008 3:37 pm

Hi,

I have a very basic entry-level monitoring set up with samson servo amp and tannoy reveal speakers.:o

The problem is, the speakers keep cutting out - often at really crucial times. Then if I turn the volume up, they often cut back in. The volume I initially have the speakers at doesn't seem to affect whether this happens though.

I don't have another amp to check whether this is the problem and I'm pretty sure the wiring is fine....(I always check this). It's also not anything earlier in the chain as I've checked this too.

Anyone know how I can figure out what the problem is??? Would really appreciate any suggestions.:headbang:


Thanks,

D

There have been some similar problems mentioned regarding Samson's Servo amps in the forums before.

Check out this thread:

Samson Servo thread

Hope it helps

it's unfortunately a fairly common issue with the Samson servo range...

(offhand I think googling Samson Servo relay issue or fault might reveal something )

Thanks guys, that's good to know. I'll look at getting a different amp.

Which ones are decent?

I deleted this because you already have a thread asking the same question.

It can get quite confusing when people start answering in both.

Don't mean to take over here but a quick question on the same topic...

I have been having the same problems with my Digi002R. It seems there are cuts in the signal at the outputs. Anyone with experience on this?

it's not "the same problem" matrix.... it's a different problem with somewhat similar symptoms.... unless you're using a Samson Servo amp.....

start a new thread..... you'll probably get more traffic that way mate...
