Hi guys,

In one of our church buildings we have an APG PA system which has worked really well for a number of years.  However all of a sudden on the speaker controller I have a bright red ‘X’ light come on in the sub bass section and it has turned off my subs.  Firstly does anyone know what the ‘X’ light even means, and secondly is this a silly fault that I can fix myself or do I need to take the unit into someone to be fixed?

The unit is an APG SPDS15S controller, the main speakers are DS15S tops with Sub238S subs.

Many thanks for any light anyone can shed here.

Shaun

Hi Shaun, sorry for taking so long to get back to you but have been out of touch for a short time.

So your X light is glowing. This little thing will shut down the speakers when it things that there is a problem. It is designed I think to stop you over extending the cones or just driving them too hard. It seems to be similar to the Celestion set up. It monitors your speaker cable and if the ohm-age is wrong shuts down to protect. So have a look at your cables maybe one is not seated right or may have a break in it.  Or one of the sub drivers may be on its way out.

I have got a PDF of the owners manual if you need it I can email it to you.

Hope this helps

Hey Steve, thanks for the reply mate, and no worries on the delay.

I will get the cables checked tomorrow and see if I have any joy with that. Thanks for the help – if you could send me the manual that would be useful please. Should I post my e mail address on here, or can you see it anyway as admin?

 

Cheers, Shaun.
