Maybe funny voltage on that circuit ?   My old (and gone) PRs 612ms would not start once when everything K Series was happy.  Moved circuits and the PRXs came to life and the K series still worked....  very odd but the K series being sold world wide may have a more robust and flexible power supply.

A&H Qu Pac

Got ya.  No shrill with the Qu-Pac

Was curious what Steve was using where he hears them being shrill.

And there-in lies the problem Jay - It hasn't happened since. I can keep trying it out but no issues each time.

And those are the worst problems!

Maybe I will sell my DSR's when I have a conclusion to this and get a set of DZR's.

The last time you posted that you were getting DZRs, you ended up getting a mixing board instead.

The shrill I mentioned is with the DSR on the floor for FB (Aux mix). I did use them once as mains, but didn't care for the lack of low-mid punch as compared to the PRX's 15's I have. My mixer is a Mackie DL1608, which does not sound remotely "shrill" when used with my SRX and PRX mains. I now have a Souncraft Ui24 that I'm still in learning mode with.

It has to be a voltage sag issue. i have one that will stay on 90% of the time. But some rooms it will go off. Comes right back on. I have to watch where I use it. It's on injured reserve as we speak... ;D

Hi Debbie,

Wow... just ...wow.

Maybe you should pick up one of these:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L58BDG7/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07L58BDG7&pd_rd_w=T2jhJ&pf_rd_p=733540df-430d-45cd-9525-21bc15b0e6cc&pd_rd_wg=OUvLu&pf_rd_r=8FEADDV8CQ6M9Y6P4MNR&pd_rd_r=1444f1e8-3a2e-11e9-8857-518f15906d37

You could check out the socket for good wiring and voltage.  Hopefully Kemper Watson had it right and that is all it is.

I haven't had any issues since I got my rattling woofer fixed.  Both my DSR's have been performing beautifully.  I really hope you just had a bad socket doing that.

I have plugged into tons of different sockets and have even run on a generator that was obviously not keeping up with the load (lights dimmed every time the kick was hit) and still never had a DSR go out.

Maybe you should get a paper trail going for this speaker so if it happens after warranty, you can claim it is a pre-existing condition :)

I hope things work out for you.  You don't deserve this bad luck.

FWIW, I have heard some people say that the ribbon cable inside the DSR can get dirty contacts and need to be cleaned up.  If your speaker is in warranty, maybe you could suggest a repair shop do it under warranty for you?

No - the last time I posted SHOULD I get DZR's and based partly on the advice I got here to perhaps upgrade my mixer and the fact a SQ6 became available at a great price - I ended up getting a board instead.
Also at that time my DSR hadn't crapped out on me.

I was wondering if it could be something simple like this.
I hope so but I am wary of trying them out anywhere unless I take it in to have it checked out and if he finds nothing wrong I'll do what I suggested in my earlier post and take the offending speaker with me to a bunch of shows along with both my SRX's and set it up as an extra on one side.

Yeah I'm still well inside that 7 year warranty so I'll drop it off and have it checked out.
