Pro 2 with grounding problems..
« on: April 17, 2012, 04:00:30 pm »

Ran into a act carrying a Pro2 and was excited. Started line check and he was getting buzzes down quite a few lines. In the bottom of the console case was a 1RU UPS. After pushing back Soundcheck for over a hour they decided to turn the UPS off and his desk cleaned up. Anyone else seen this?

I can't say I've seen it with a Pro2 (not yet had a Pro2 visit us), but it sounds very much like MOV surge protection that has taken it's lumps.  If you're in contact, suggest a review of the specs to see if the unit incorporates MOVs.

Power strips with MOVs will exhibit the same symptom once the MOVs have been sacrificed to the surges.

Tim,
Hey I'm not 100% positive, but it looked so similar to a Tripp Lite 1500 LCD. I have one under my SC48 and have never had any problems, but I'm starting to wonder now?
