Uneven link output on behringer active PA speakers.

Postby forumuser939686 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 4:49 pm

I have 2 behringer powered speakers set up as monitors out of a mackie MK16. They are set up through a mono aux channel that is pre fader. one speaker has the original signal, the other gets signal through the link out of that speaker. This weekend while a band was playing the main speaker dropped in volume by 25percent and one with the link out signal gained 25percent volume. I have evened out the signal by adjusting the level knobs on the speakers .
I am trying to find out what caused this problem. The signal coming from the board is fine and normal. The power sources to the speakers are separate and not the issue. Has one of my speakers gone bad? I am not sure what behringer speakers they are but I think they are an older version of the B215D. Any information you can give me would be helpful. Thank you.

The most likely reason for a sudden loss of level is a broken XLR cable where one of the signal wires has broken.... but that wouldn't explain the sudden gain in level of the second linked speaker... Nevertheless, I'd start by checking that all your XLR cables are intact!

After that, it would be worth swapping the two units around to see if the first speaker has become faulty.
