Does anyone know how to remove the electronic hum from a paging speaker?

I've got a 12 watt pager speaker. I took this really old black G3 Western electric Telephone. I've wired them to a 1.8 watt dc power supply for the moment. Does anyone know how to remove the eletronic hum from my PA system? Plan on getting a better power supply soon.

I got a siren!

A little over a month ago, my dad got a siren on eBay. It's the Wolo Model 345, about halfway down the page. Note: if you want one, go through eBay, Wolo wants $64, but this was brand-new for $20. It's not Instructable-worthy, and I don't have enough pictures to make a Slideshow, so I'm using the Forums for their original use. We were originally going to put this on my mom's ZAP Xebra, because it's completely silent and we wanted a way to warn walkers of her approach, but she didn't like it, so I got it to put in out Ford Courier. Since it's electric, I only go 39 in a 40 mph-zone to save range, so I'm often cut off by people going 45. Being electric, the truck has no radiator, just a flat plate of steel. We were already going to paint it black, so we mounted the horn speaker in there. There is an instrument bay overhead, so I stuffed the control box inside an empty slot. Eventually I'll take off the plastic case and mount it in the aluminum sheet to make it much cleaner, but this is fine for now. There were already two extra switches that did nothing, but already had an always-hot line running to them, so I wired it in to that. It can do sirens, animal noises, or a PA. I'm leaving it set to a police-style siren, so if someone cuts me off, I can just flip the switch and give a short blast, then watch them look around for the police car. If I have more time, I can just use the PA to yell at them. Other potential use: I'm going to make a CD of engine sounds. That way I can make my electric sound like an idling Harley at a stoplight. Or a turbine engine. Or a semi. Or a whatever.

Possible to build a Powered PA Speaker myself?

I am a musician, so I've been talking about guitar amplifiers, tubes, microphones and all kinds of gear for over 20 years. I've never really gotten that much into PA's, so I know nothing about speakers, heads, mixers, power amplifiers, etc. Now, I'd like to build my own powered PA speaker. I have zero experience with building anything that involves electronics. I'm not a dummy. I know Ohm's law, and I believe I can handle the physics of electronics, no problem. I just do not know where to start. Schematics for power audio amplifiers? Where does one find them, and how do you read schematics. These are the things I need to know.  Let me preface this by saying... I do not expect to build a top-of-the-line PA speaker. I don't even expect to build something that would be considered crappy. I just want to know the theory, and where to start. Anyone got any help? Thanks!

Circuit to connect stereo output to 5.1 speaker system?

Hi all! I am after a circuit that will mix a stereo source together (into mono) then pipe it out to a 5.1 speaker system. Obviously the simple solution is to wire the left and rights together and then patch into each speaker on the 5.1 speaker system. However it causes noise and other audio artifacts. I am thinking some form of op-amp type circuit to mix the L and R. That then either can be directly split between the speakers or goes into another pre-amp circuit for each speaker output (maybe even a band-pass for the sub woofer). Just to explain what this is for: I want to have music in a workshop. At the moment we have a standard radio which, to be heard the other side of the 'shop, is quite loud. Those near it then turn it down and arguments start (not quite but you get the idea!). I want to use my old 5.1 computer speaker system to spread the sound around the 'shop evenly so the volume is constant no matter where you are - a poor mans PA system.

Lightweight Speaker Enclosure

Im looking for something pre-made like a square pipe or storage box etc, that i can use as an enclosure that has flat ends large enough to mount 6.5" PA speakers onto, is no wider than 8" and no longer than 2ft. It needs to be as lightweight but rigid as possible. Any ideas/links?

Matching speakers to amplifier

I have purchased 2 Maxamp20 amplifiers ( and i am trying to match speakers to them, i've searched audio forums for information (that i mostly don't understand) and tried asking questions (that have been mostly ignored) and i think i've found appropriate speakers but i want to get a second opinion before i purchase stuff i might not be able to return. i don't have the space for and can't afford the weight requirements of a large enclosure but i want fairly high volume and wide dispersion so im looking at getting 2 of these PA horns ( to mount on top of a shallow down firing enclosure for 2 of these subs ( i know the subs work with that amplifier because they are used in Boominators ( but i have no idea about the horns. also assuming this setup is okay do i need some kind of filter or crossover (not sure of the difference) to split the sound safely between the midrange and the sub speakers?

Behringer B212D PA system main driver works for 10 to 20 minutes before stops every time

Behringer B212D PA system main driver works for 10 to 20 minutes before stops working. but the compression driver continues to work. If I power off the amp for a second and switch back again, the main driver works for minute or so. After couple of hours if I switch on the amp again, same process repeates. I am able to hear the main driver working for 10-30 minutes only, every time I use. after that, just the compression drivers shrill sound continues.The amp is also not that Hot at that time. It is an unit from 2009.Is it a thermal issue? Or any capacitor weak? Or any other weak component?Thanks a lot in advance.

Where can I buy a premade vox / PA-style voice-override circuit?

I have a pair of hearing protection headphones.  I want to play radio & walkie-talkie through them.  However, when the walkie talkie plays, I want the radio to cut out. This is a basic PA-style circuit.  Some sound mixers have this too.  I can find circuit schematics online, but no time to build a circuit. Is there a pre-made device I can buy to do this?  Ideally it'd be a small box with 3 audio jacks - 2 inputs & 1 output.  One of the audio inputs would override the other. This would also be great for things like music + GPS in the car.  Is there something premade that I can buy?  I'd rather not have to build & debug a DIY circuit, as I really don't have the time right now.

How to Disable Headphones-Speaker Mute of a Guitar Amp? Answered

Hello! See, we have a nice digital guitar combo amp with a headphones/record out jack. We'd like to connect the amp to the PA system. The thing is, it automatically kills the speaker once you insert something on it like a headphones.  We swish to use the jack as a direct line out without killing the speaker. In addition to this, I also wish to do the same thing on our electric piano with built-in speakers. It does the same thing of muting every time you plug it to the PA. QUESTIONS:: 1. How do you tweak and bypass this mute function on some combo amps/instruments? 2. Does the same principle/switching applies to these situations? Hope to see your post soon! Thanks!
