Saturday a week ago My Band played at a nice venue which had their own PA and a sound tech. Anyway, when I got there, the sound guy didn't show up, so they asked me if I would help them out. God, what a mess, I have never seen a bigger mess of chords, tangled and wrapped around each other. I've seen over cooked spaghetti that looked better. I noticed there wasn't any low end, but I thought I'm not going to bother with this mess. So I went ahead and dialed everyone in, the best I could. Put my wife on the mixer, tuned up my bass and just played some music, got paid and went home, end of story. Nope, I get a call this week, sound guy a no show, asked me to run sound. I said, OK but I'm not going to trouble shoot at the last minute. I get there 5 minutes before show time. Anyway, checked things out and no low end. I walk over and look at the rats nest and I could see the pw amp was getting a signal and that's as far as I went. No way was I going to try to get behind that rack. So I finished the night, got paid and grabbed my stuff and was about ready to go home and the manager ask me if I would stop in soon and see why the subs weren't working. They offered to pay me, but I said, I would take a look as a favor. It seems that the speakers (subs) are gone. I unplugged one sub and plugged the speaker cable into another speaker and it worked. So tomorrow I'll take the speaker out, test it with my ohm meter. I wonder do those subs have a fuse or any type of protection before the speaker? PS they have a crown xls or xti 4002 on each sub bridged, from what I can see, way way to much power right?
