Yorkville UCS1 candle snuffer
« on: March 24, 2017, 12:37:47 pm »

I have noticed that when I am directly behind a UCS1 (DJ mode with a table just above the NL4 inputs between it and me) that the unused NL4 port is like a fan blowing on me.  Should I pull the plates and silicone the input backs to stop the air from escaping?

Just plug in a spare NL-4 (you do have a couple of spares, right ?)

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

Are they the NL4's with screw terminals?  I only use the spade terminal style inside speaker cabinets.

Could be an easy swap/fix.

According to the components list, it is PCB mount.

I've got a couple of NL4 connectors here that whistle if you push the cone (sealed cabinets). Plugging something in helps a little, but I'd probably just coat the whole thing in sealant.

The leak certainly can't be helping performance.
