What not to do if you want your sound system to sound good and last longer

Common Dj Sound System Mistakes

...All the Information here can also be applied in Clubs... 1. Mismatched power -   One of the most common mistakes made with mixer-amplifier-speaker combinations is the use of components that are not evenly matched. For example, say you have a pair of speakers rated at 300 watts continuous power and 600 watts peak. This gives you an operating range in which to place the amplifier that you’ll use. Check to see whether the speakers are eight ohms or four ohms in impedance. The next step is to check the power rating on the chosen amplifier at that specific impedance or ''load.'' It is very easy to do speaker damage by using an amplifier with insufficient power. The lack of &ldq

You should always keep equipment Backups

SYSTEM FAILURE

BE PREPARED! You should keep equipment backups (as well as other essential items) on hand, ready to go should you have a problem. You should also carry a toolbox that has screw and nut drivers, pliers, cutters, jumper wires, plenty of audio adapters, fuses and light bulbs.For the average system you should have at least one backup cable for every type of cable in your system. The most common system failures can be traced to bad cables. You plug them in and out, you step on them and run over them with your hand truck. Do yourself a big favor and carry backup cables. If you use a wireless mic, keep a wired mic handy as a spare. I find that a Sony Discman can be your best friend when a CD player fails. Toss one in

Re: top 40 crapola

Pete I think what the general rule is.... if you work as a Dj and play music (CD's not computers) and get CAUGHT without a licence making money from the record companies then dont say you wasnt informed in the first place if you want to know about Dj licences then best to get one at www.ppca.com.au and this way you can use CD's at work - it does NOT cover mp3's as its illegal to use a computer in Australia have a nice day

This means we get to cover a lot of ground. We average an arrest every two weeks. By way of example, we currently have over 134 DJs, Jukebox operators and venues (and their operators) in the process of being prose
