  1. I believe this looks like an upgrade to the X/M32 line. More to add value and channel count to it. I know 40 Stereo inputs looks nice. I also heard rumors of more coming out in this line but time will tell. Looks like a loaded desk for $3500 retail.
  2. $3500 U.S. price (Retail) Pretty loaded for what it is.

  4. Got it. So it wasn't " Feedback " as in a feedback loop between a microphone and monitor it was some ringing coming out of a damaged unit in a internal feedback loop inside. I had 3 Peavey Cex5 digital crossovers. Two of them suffered from "Tin Whiskers" Basically the Tin in the solder used to manufacture them was too high. They grew Whiskers and shorted the PC board. When they first started to go they let out a wine sound that got louder and louder. Not fun. Glad you found your issue! https://nepp.nasa.gov/WHISKER/background/index.htm
  5. I'm trying to wrap my head around how you can get feedback with all the channels muted. I'd swap each component out. Change the board, change the crossover, change the speakers. Could you describe the feedback, record it and host it on youtube etc.? Positive its from FOH and not monitors? I've seen mutes that mute the mains but leave the monitor system unmuted...Or check to see if the monitor system/FOH system somehow got swapped around by someone trying to "Help" you ..
  6. The manual shows it has 2 , XLR outputs that should have L , R Main out labeled on them. Should be on the top, right corner just above the headphone jack. https://assets.peavey.com/literature/specs/116919_13044.pdf
  7. If the stage is high enough place the SP2 upside down on top of the sp1 to better couple the horns. Have the horn drivers inside as close to the same plane up and down as possible. ( Forward to Back )
  8. I had the sp1"split" ( MFx-1 and FH-1 sub) Something that sounded good was FH-1 sub - SP2A-Mfx-1 horn on top. The whole load was 4 ohms and they sounded , for what they were , pretty good. This was in the late 80's , early 90's. Seen in this 1991 brightened picture. The box was a SP1 split by someone and the crossover out to feed to the sub was in the horn box.
  9. I like the IG4T's enough that I picked up a set of IG2T's to go with them for side,front fill or even a delay stack. A smaller speaker with about 2/3 dbs less output. Sound is very good! Doug
  10. Had to search and change my bookmark but I found my way here. Everyone else make it? Glad to see the whole site is up! Doug
  11. Rather than wade through and rewrite the same thing I thought I'd just leave a link. https://forums.prosoundweb.com/index...PX4ni9986X7JT0 Douglas R. Allen
  12. Not sure where your located but if in the USA some states have a 90 day replacement guaranty policy. This supersedes any company guaranty. If they sold it to you in your state they have to follow the rules your state has as far as return policy. I think a 3 month delay for repair is way too much and they should issue you a new one. Doug
  13. I don't know if the racks XLR's are setup on 1 PC board or in sections of 8 but it sounds like a possible ribbon problem. Could be xlr's 17-24 are on their own PC board and a ribbon cable interconnects them with the others. If its under warranty send it in before attempting to fix it yourself . If not then open it up and try reseating the ribbon cable (S) that feed 17-24.
  14. 1. You've been mixing more than 35 years or so. Check 2. You have a X32. Check When I said you went to digital I meant for your Sub Mixer and not a lot of money meaning buying a proper Router etc. 3. Your an Electrical Engineer for a long time. Check You purchased the Yugo of wireless mixers that everyone on the web has stated here and elsewhere for years that the built in WIFI isn't any good and yet you trusted it for a mission critical job. It sounds like it worked fine for a few gigs yet failed this 1 time (I'm guessing) and now its not a good product. Although I don't have a paper in a frame I've done a few Heath kits and been around electronics for a few years. ;-) There's no way I'd go out with any digital rack mixer and trust its built in WiFi. Common sense and experience wouldn't let me do that. I've been mixing wireless for some time now with yamaha and midas products. No issues. For someone who has been developing communicating products for years and with all your other experience I'm surprised you trusted such a entry level product with known questionable built in WiFi. Sorry you have had bad luck with it. I'm betting if you picked up a external router or better you'd have great luck but I understand that is one more step to frig with and takes up space so its not what your looking for. There is the X32 Rack as I'm sure you know that has accessible controls on front but it is a step up in price. I haven't looked in the used market for one but there may be some at a reasonable price. Regardless now that you have it I'd pick up a low cost router and maybe give it another try in not such a high profile show. You may end up liking it. Also it doesn't sound like you were using every input on the mixer. Maybe setup a few channels for "spares" so if this came up again you could swap channels out. I realize it would be a Hot Swap and you may have to ask the FOH to mute your send for a moment but it may get you through until you picked up a analog sub mixer. Doug
