  1. Dumb question, but is a CE 1000 amp enough power for a pair of JBL EON 1500's (passive) running into a Mackie CFX-12 live sound mixer, mainly for vocals/pa? Thanks for the help!
  2. No concerns whatsoever. Btw: I believe these speakers are 4ohm but I am yet to see any specs on the vega website. Thanks.
  3. Can you recommend an amp that will power a pair of these? Legendary Cerwin-Vega Bass Performance Custom 21-inch Cerwin-Vega Stroker Woofer 2,000 watts continuous, 4,000 watt peak power handling 1/4", Neutrik Speakon connections Cast Aluminum Grille Hardwood Enclusure with Coolex Paint Finish 3 top-mount Pole Sockets Weight: 147 lbs Btw: The system will be bi-amped and used mainly for music playback/dj. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the reassurance. Btw: About the amplifier power. That was going to be my next question. Not only does Crown make great amps and have great people working for them, some of them can read minds.
  5. I have a pair of 12 gauge/2 conductor neutrik speakon to speakon NL4FC speaker cables. Each speaker cable is wired as +1/-1 at both ends. I have a pair of passive JRX-118/4 ohm subs http://www.jblpro.com/JRX/JRX118S.htm The system is being bi-amped and I'm going to use the CE-4000 to power them for stereo operation, ch.1 for one sub and ch.2 for other. Before I hookup the speakers to the CE-4000 and power anything up. Is my speaker wiring configuration correct? Speaker cable #1 (wired as +1/-1 at both ends) to ch.1 output of the CE-4000 and the other end to the left input of the sub. Speaker cable #2 (wired as +1/-1 at both ends) to ch.2 output of the CE-4000 and the other end to the left input of the sub. Here's a pic of the back of the sub. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/document?cp...=600433&index=4 I hope this description isn't confusing. Help is much appreciated, thanks.
  6. I have five amps. 3 - CE 4000's 1 - CE 1000 1 - XLS 602 with the round/bubble front grill Is it better to use individual rack cases for each amp or one rack case for all the amps? Thanks for the advice/help.
  7. Another dumb question but. How can I tell if my amp is an after-market?
  8. Replying to myself. I guess this is a cable tie? This is what happens when you drink to much alcohol. You ask stupid questions.
  9. I feel really stupid asking this but here goes. I removed that white plastic piece that's attached to the power cord/chassis on the back of my CE-4000. Is this ok?
  10. These guys might have or make what you need. http://www.markertek.com Good luck!
  11. Let me rewind. I know where to get the parts from. Duh, from Crown! Question is, can i replace this myself? Thanks for the help people.
  12. The settings i was referring to were the crossover settings. Also, what are the best input cables to use for the CE-4000? All i need are 3-6 ft. cables. Any particular brand i should use/buy? Thanks for the help. 2286[/snapback] It would be best to ask the speaker manufacture their recommendations for a crossover setting. However, in general, subs crossover in the range of 80 to 120 Hz. As far as cables go any good name brand should do fine like Whirlwind. ProCo, Hosa or Monster. They all make low cost and higher cost cables, that will work, it would all depend on how much you want to spend. 2292[/snapback] Problem... I hooked up my CE-4000 (brand new, bought 8 days ago!) to the above system & everything worked fine, i turned the system off (all levels down, shut off power conditioners etc.), unplugged power conditioners from the wall outlets, next day i power up and now ch.1 doesn't work. I checked all cables, there are no fault indicators lit. Help, please thanks. 2318[/snapback] I would try to isolate the failure by doing some basic test procedures. Swapping the speaker cables will verify they are not the fault. Then Swapping the amplifier input cables will test channel 1. If everything checks out there you know the failure is ahead if the amplifier and speakers. Keep going back to your source to find the failure. The system you describe has many interconnection cables, that always adds to the complexity of locating a problem especially if it is intermittent. Please post when you find the problem. Bob.... 2320[/snapback] I done all of the above you mentioned. I tested the amp by directly plugging into the mixer by itself with no other devices hooked up. Problem found. It's the DBX crossover (piece of crap anyway) on channel 1 that's not getting a good connection and it's not the cables because i have new ones. Can you or anyone recommend a good crossover? Ashly? Rane? or maybe a DBX driverack? Here's the thing though, if i get a new crossover then i want/need a limiter/compressor. Btw: Price range is not an issue. Thanks for the advice/help.
  13. CE-1000 fan not working... Warranty expired. Can i replace this myself? If so, where can i get the part(s)? Thanks for the help.

Monster Speakon to Speakon & one 25 ft. of the same that say NL2FC on the connector. In the CE-4000 manual it says for outputs use male Speakon NL4C connectors for output. Can i use the speaker cables i mentioned above? Thanks for the help.
