Blowing up IEM by using a powered mixer?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, this is my first post, and I discovered this forum by listening to a google talk on youtube with Jerry Harvey.  Anyway, I bought some IEMs with a transmitter.  It is the JTS branded mono system.  

 

I tried it out at a gig and it sounded really good, but then the last time I tried it, it wasn't sounding so good.  I was wondering if I blew it up somehow?  I use a Yamaha EMX512SC powered mixer, and without thinking, I plugged my transmitter into the back monitor output on the system which supplies power to passive speakers which I normally use.  I have another monitor output on the front that I am meant to use for powered speakers.  So, basically, if I supplied too much power to the transmitter, would this then blow up my IEM at the receiver end?  Should it blow up the transmitter?  I know this is probably a dumb question, but it is hard to find the answer online.  So I have only used this IEMs about 3 times, so would they be blown from using them this way, or are my ears just not hearing things consistently?  (this does happen to me)

 

Thanks

I think it is a matter of whether the IEMs received too much voltage.  If the transmitter has a set volume output and this volume was much too high, then the IEMs could be damaged.

 

Can be you more specific about what they sound like?

 

Can you try them with a portable player this way you will know if the IEMs are damaged.
