    We're not spring chickens either. Our bass player is 75, our main vocalist is a youthful 34 and the rest of us are in our 60s.

    another (dumb?) question...

    A follow up. What are the line inputs expecting on mixers that don't have said switch? Examples are the 302, 502, 802 and UFX1204 mixers that I have. Are they designed for -10 or +4?

    +4 -10 button on Xenyx mixer

    I'm sure this will enter me into the dumb question of the week contest, but is the +4 -10 button on some Xenyx mixers (eg, my QX1202USB) anything other than a pad?

    Cheers!

    Done this plenty of times at band practice. When you use both channels the two signals do pan hard left and hard right though, so take that into account.

    Wedding bliss

    If anyone's interested, the combination of a pair of B210Ds and a Xenyx QX1202USB worked a treat.

    As expected, my daughter did need to push up the volume for what she called the 'doof doof' part...

    clip or limiter?

    Thanks Robert. For the wedding gig I mentioned earlier, I decided to be cautious and assume it was a clip light, per the label. Better safe than sorry!

    Thanks for that Steve.

    The specs for the mixer say it's max output is 21 dbu. I have no idea how this relates to the 0 and +6 led indicators, but had naively assumed this means there is a +15...

    Thanks Robert.

    I did wonder whether it was a clip or a limiter light, given there's only 1 on the speaker. It's labelled 'clip' though, just to explain my initial terminology.

    My daughter is about to use these for a wedding reception (smallish) where she will be singing and playing guitar. Afterwards they want to use them for recorded music.

    I suspect the latter use may...

    comparison with Truth B1031A

    There was a rather irresistible special offer on pairs of Nekkst 8 inch monitors, so despite already having a pair of B1031A 'Truth' 8 inchers, I succumbed.

    Level settings too conservative?

    I've just bought a Eurolive B210D speaker and would appreciate any thoughts on setting the level knob.

    I plan on running this via a small Xenyx mixer (either a Q802USB or a QX1202USB). After much...

    We use the xm8500

    You can only record a stereo mix. So you can get 4 mics to record, but only as stereo, not 4 separate channels.

    As part of the zero latency tip, the issue I think you're raising is addressed. It's with a 502, but may work with yours.
