OK here is my problem I have a small DJ setup, I am running audio from my laptop via 2 usb cables to a numark usbx1 mixer then out via rca with an rca to xlr conector to an xls 802D amp then out to 2 cerwin vega INT-252"s. Now that said here is my problem and what I think might be the solution. I used to have an echo indigo sound card installed in my laptop ran straight to the 802 via 1/8 to xlr cable, it sounded great the amp delivered great power never close to clipping but the sound card only had one output and I needed 2. So I purchase the numark mixer and the problem is that I can't really get the same power I used to without the amp clipping and I don't want to damage my speaker or the amp. I am assuming this is because the signal is unbalanced now being I am using the rca cables between the mixer and amp, is this correct or am I missing something else? I want that great sound and power back, I never had a problem with hum or buzz, just a lack of power now that the mixer is in the equation. Any ideas
