I have an old Behringer mixer here at the house that I had plugged them into and that mixer will take your head off. I will have more time this week to see if I was doing something wrong but is the Studiolive weak in this dept? I will also get an adaptor to turn them into mono and try an aux out just to try it. I will buy a headphone amp as well but I just found it weird that while listening to the entire mix with the headphone turned up to max the in ears were not even close to loud. Any thought's guys?


Did you make sure that not only the headphone knob was turned up, but also the Cue knob? I have forgotten to turn the Cue up before and wondered why the headphones were so quiet too.

I think the 16.4.2 does have a pretty weak headphone output. I believe they must have had some complaints before the 24.4.2 came out, because the 24's headphone output is quite a bit louder. djeror is right though, make sure the cue volume is cranked, and use PFL.

Well I thought I tried everything but it was over 100 degress outside so I may have missed something. I am not sure what the impeadance on the E2'S is but I would bet it's up there so I can't believe the board would have any trouble keeping up. At this point I am wondering what the wattage is. Like I said no biggie I won't be using the headphone out anyway but I thought I saw a post where someone was using it for their drummers in ears and if this is the case I am doing something very wrong or their drummer has super duper hearing!!!!!!

My setup is this:


  • Run TRS to XLR female loom (8 way) into an 8way 30metre muliticore

  • Then from the box end of the multicore I run XLR male to TRS 8 way multicore into the back of my sonifex rack headphone amp

  • ( i recently sold the behringer powerplay - cause it was inducing bad noise in the mix - the sonifex does not do this - neither does the presonus)


  • This mulitcore runs separately from my main multicore - this one is purely for headphone returns to stage from my SL24.4.2
    Everyone on stage has their own independent mix and I have a master control

    I use talkback from the desk to go through levels with them as normal
    This works for everyone on stage - and I still have two main monitors to roll with.

    Works for my team and I.

    I wouldn't like to try connecting the Aux outs to a Mic input with phantom. Use the line inputs on the small mixer instead, I do this for the drummer too with a little Behringer Xenyx 502 mixer. Works well!

    Also, I plan on getting some of these Jangus AudioLink systems, on paper they look to be excellent, and there is nothing else I can find on the market that is like these.

    Don't forget to let us know how you like them . I'm particularly interested in the latency.

    Anybody else using the Jangus WI wireless system for an IEM solution. I have a set, my bass player has a set and we rehearsed and had nothing but problems with them disconnecting.

    I picked up a set, but I haven't messed with them too much. I think the main issue you'll have with them, provided you cane keep them connected, is latency. Most people that have tried them for IEMs have reported the delay is just too much too ignore.

    I would try just one set and see if you can get it stable. Make sure to rule out any other radio frequencies that may be floating around.

    Hi technology is not my strong point.

    I am a bass player who also sings a little. I need to improve my backing vocals but I have a hearing difficulty.
    The Band only puts the vocals through the PA. My thinking goes that if i could get the monitor sound into one of my ears then my vocals should improve. The other ear i would keep free so i can hear bass and everything not going through the mix.


    I was wandering whether this would make sense as a solution and whether the Rock on Audio Rockbox could do this (or am i missing a trick

    Cheers

    HUH? Say WHAT? No vocals in the monitors? What the heck kind of rinky dink outfit would not allow vocals in the MONITORS? THAT is the primary function of the foldback, to allow the singers to HEAR themselves...I generally try and get the performers to arrange their instruments arranged so that they wash the stage in such a way that the other performers don't need them in the monitors.

    But, since you asked the question, yes, that is a variation on the dual PA technique, where one PA has NOTHING but instruments, and one has NOTHING but vocals. This works with monitors as well and is a GREAT way to do things IF you have time, energy and equipment to do dual anything.

    Some people however can't get used to the one ear thing... try it, you might just think it's the best thing since sliced bread!

    That will work. You will need to pipe the things you need to an aux (other vocals most likely) and then route that to the RockBox.
