  1. Thanks for that suggestion, I will check it out Wed before practice and will report back what I find out. We did have some sound out of his amp again this week, probably about halfway between what was first noticed and last week where there was very very little.
  2. sorry i hadn't gotten more information on this since my previous reply. It is a carvin amp, the speaker he runs off the amp itself has just a slight buzz/hum, but the DI out is quite loud in the mains. This past Sunday I went back to the previous channel and mic cable as changing channels the week before did not get rid of the sound. I did have just a slight buzz/hum from the bass, but it was pretty quiet. even turning off the gate it was there but not very noticable even if it was quiet between songs. I don't know what would have changed. His gear was plugged in to the same outlet t
  3. Thanks for your thoughts. Much appreciated. If at some point I get more funding, I will probably leave the speakers in the stage there, and just put the subs on the stage and the mains on top of those. Until then, I will probably make some sort of speaker stands for them for now. IF i can figure out the best way to build them.. I have an idea but want a bit of input on the structure of the stands before I build anything.
  4. I will look into his amp some more, but I cannot say if it is a balanced DI out on his amp head or not. I don't hear the buzz/hum when standing by his gear or whether hes playing or not. I will def look more into his amp and find out if it actually is balanced xlr outs on it. Even so, i may still get an iso box. I thank you both for your thoughts and suggestions, and will try to post an update tomorrow afternoon, and go from there.
  5. hello folks, I am in serious need of help. With some changes in the worship band at the church I run sound for, we have a different bass player than before. I had mic'd the previous bassist amp, as that was what the worship leader at the time wanted and had no issues with buzz or hum. Now when they left, they took all of their equipment with them, so I had to scramble to get the new bassist into the system, and he has a DI out on his bass amp head. I just plug in an xlr from that to the snake to the board. I cannot for the life of me get rid of the buzz/hum at all. Plugged his amp into a
  6. Happy new year and belated Merry Christmas to all. I know its been a few weeks since I've posted, and wanted to give an update/ask for suggestions. We had a bit of a mess a few weeks back as someone decided to quit doing worship music, and they took all their gear with them, which included quite a few mics and most all of the mic stands, and we were left with old clunky ones. We have filled some of the void, and I am working to get us back into a good spot again. I have our mains as the community cabinets sitting on edge of stage where they yamahas had been, along with the mtxs where they
  7. I forgot to add to that last update post. I def need a crossover, and some actual dedicated subs. I think I will get a behringer super-x pro cx3400 crossover. I just need to figure out what subs to get without breaking the bank as I am buying as I get paid from the church. All of the gear i've gotten for the church I have gotten from ebay and gotten pretty good deals on things. I was thinking of going with 18's for subs, probably 2 18's per side under the community cabinets. Any suggestions on true sub speakers? I am thinking of going passive subs and get another 3402 to run them, just
  8. Thanks for the information. I actually was able to score a 3402 on monday for 400 bucks and no shipping as it was local so picked it up tuesday. Last night I was able to get the community cabinet repaired and swapped out the rmx 1450 for that. Yes the rmx was able to run 2 ohm, but it couldn't keep up very well. Now with running the communities and mtx cabinets together as I had with the yamahas/mtx was night and day difference. It was like i flipped a switch and it sounds LOUD. I have a handheld spl meter and on the rmx amp running the yamaha/mtx I could only get to around 102 db "a" we
  9. Thanks for the reply. And yes trying to KISS as possible while having the best sound I can get as well. I am currently the only person running sound, and want to get as much of the stuff set up and dialed in as I can before having someone else start working with it who may not have any clue about whats going on. The more I get set up and dialed in, the less someone else may need to mess around with outside of setting up gain and mixing on the board. I think for now, I will just get a crossover, and a 3002 for the community cabinets now that i have funds for an amp and possibly crossover
  10. As an update. I had time to to a test with a wire, and wow, it worked. It sounds just like the other speaker, so I went ahead and got 4 bulbs on order and will swap out the bulbs in both crossovers so that I won't worry about the other ones bulbs going out on me. From what i can figure out amp wise, I am looking to try to score a used plx 3402 or 3602 for the community cabinets, as well as a decent crossover. Use for now the qsc rmx 1450 for the mtxs as subs. Does that sound alright? Or should I be looking into picking up a plx 3002 for the mtx speakers? Yeah i know I've got a qsc amp f
  11. Thanks for the suggestion of a piece of wire to test it out without replacing the bulb. I did find on full compass website that they have in their community speaker parts lists an sk3 bulb used for community and jbl crossover networks. I haven't ordered bulbs yet. I will try to do the test with the wire Sunday morning during rehearsal and see what I hear. i've got plenty of wire at home to take a bit and use for a test. If that works, i'll order the bulbs. Looking at both crossovers there does not seem to be any parts that look burned or caps that are bulged, or windings that look damage
  12. sorry for the delay in getting back with some updates, was quite busy and also didn't have much time to look into things until last night. I was able to hook up the community cs70 speakers and run sound thru them. At first glance they sounded quite a bit better than they yamahas. However, after doing some more listening to them one at a time and really paying attention to the sounds, myself and another person there at practice who was just hanging out we noticed that on one of the speakers there was quite a bit of the high end missing from the stage left speaker compared to the stage right
  13. Hello all, it has been over a decade since i've been here. I had gotten out of running sound, got married, have 2 boys 7 and 4. Now here comes the important parts. I have gotten involved with a church as the sound tech about 3 months ago. I have been slowly getting things squared away and forgotten about this site until just today. The church runs a contemporary service with drums, bass, 2 electric guitars, acoustic guitar, 2 or 3 vocals, and they are looking to add a keyboard player. The current gear for FOH and Mains are this: behringer mx 2442a(about to be taken out
