Yamaha DZR12 has died
« on: October 15, 2023, 01:46:29 AM »

So this happened at the beginning of a show tonight. Both were on and playing then one of them quit. No power lights or anything. Turned off, unplugged, swapped power cables, just would not turn back on. Has anyone ever experienced this issue with these? Lucky the venue had an old pair of Mackie SA1521s to use.

I have a dead one too, stuff breaks.  Between the two of us we have a pair.

This is a major downside to powered speakers.  The amps inside of them sometimes die.  The problem is, replacement parts are proprietary.  In order to get through a show, you need a full speaker as a spare.

I've had FAR more failures of amps inside of speakers than I have had with external amps.  I've NEVER had a passive speaker just up and die with no warning.  When an amp in the rack dies, it's easier to patch around and get back up and running, or drop in another amp in its place.

It's a trade in convenience of initial setup vs being able to get the show back online if something goes awry.

This is a major advantage to powered speakers. Each one is a complete system. Whatever fails, amp, driver, signal processor, input jack, oops I dropped it and it exploded, all you need is another unit as a spare.

The best sound system is no sound system. Everything else is compromise.

No and mine is a DSR not a DZR.  I was not the original purchaser and it was truly a challenge to obtain out of warranty repair.


It's still under the bench.
