  1. You are correct. They are attenuators, just like those on the D-series amps of that day. Well I have a standard Fluke meter and it reads nothing when I send the signal through. If there is anyone that would mind sending me there phone number I will call you and maybe you can walk me through this. Thanks, Brett Artvandelay1@verizon.net
  2. Ok, thanks I will try that and post back. By multipliers you mean set the frequencies to 0 or off right? I am going to re-read the manual for the forth time. To me the maunal is not the easiest to understand. FYI: this is the first timie I have ever worked with an active crossover Brett Still struggling to understand the manual but I think if I just turn the range/ vernier switch off the signal should pass straight thruogh.

  4. If your source is unbalanced then using the balanced i/p's will make no difference. The signal will remain unbalanced, unless you use a balancing transformer prior to the amp's balanced i/p. Unless you are having interference or some sort of noise issues with your amp, balanced is not really necessary. It's benefits are mainly noticed with long cable runs where sometimes a cable can turn into an aerial, and receive unwanted RF. If you were to patch your leads in then change from the unbalanced to balanced inputs while listening to something, then you more than likely will notice no difference with your current set-up. Cheers, G. I wiould still like to make sure the gain settings are set up right. Is there any other way that what you described? Could I do it with a meter?
  5. Can I ask, are you actually feeding the VFX2 with a balanced source? If not, then just use the unbalanced i/p's which are unity. Otherwise, there are a couple of other options, 1) you'll have to use a signal (eg White/Pink noise) and use a microphone plugged into an RTA to measure the output of your speakers, (the hard way, especially if you don't have that sort of stuff lying around), or 2) pull the unit forward a tad, get a small screwdriver and use your ears and just listen to something. If it sounds good, you're done. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the controls run at unity when fully clockwise, so there's no extra gain to be had. (Correct me if I'm wrong somebody.) Cheers, G. Well I am running from an unbalanced soure but made custom cables to run into a Balanced input. I was prior using the unity gain with and unbalanced signal. Is there a way of runnning pink noise and the reading with a meter at the output of the crossover? If I measure at the speakers then the different amps I have come into play. My McIntosh also has adjustable gains per channel and the tube amps do not. I would much rather know that the signal is balanced coming out of the unit then down the line. Is there a way of doing that? Thanks
  6. There are (2) screws on the back of the unit beside the balanced input that control the input gain. How can I make sure that the gain is equal on both left and right channels? The screw is basic in that turning it one way increase the other decreases and there is one for each L&R inputs. Thanks
