Ten weeks ago we started to post a new FAQ from our database in our blog every week… Here is the newest one!
Q: Why is there noise coming from my monitor controller?
A: It is important to calibrate correctly the audio equipment in the monitor path. All SPL controllers have very low noise values. In fact, their specs prove that noise is far below the hearing threshold. However, if you notice too much noise it might have to do with the calibration of the audio equipment connected.
Just so you know where you stand, here’s a simple rule of thumb: common volume levels are achieved when the volume control is set somewhere between 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock. If your system sounds too loud even before reaching 10 o’clock, it indicates that your power amp’s or active loudspeakers’ sensitivity is too high. Please refer to your SPL monitor controller user’s manual to find out how to calibrate your system.
