Hi. I work at a church, and I've been appointed a position to handle the media portion of our services. Ever since COVID vaccines have been given out to the public and churches started opening up for face-to-face worship, we decided to pull out our Bose F1 Model 812's from storage.
This is our setup:
- Bose F1 Model 812 (Just speakers, no subs (We have the subs, but we're trying to be as portable as possible. Since we're renting out spaces.)
- Yamaha MG16XU Mixer
So this past Sunday, we hooked up XLR cables from Stereo Out to the Left & Right speakers. Plugged in the XLR for microphone to Line 5, turned the channel "on", but nothing... We tried inserting RCA to 3.5mm to Line 15/16 and playing music from a smartphone. The monitor/equalizer on the mixer, showed green lights going up and down, but still no sound... We tried then, by connecting the smartphone directly to the speaker via TRS to 3.5mm and it played the music from the smartphone.
Does this mean our mixer is fried? It was working fine the week before when we operated YouTube Live out of a office space. We've changed the selectors on the back of the F1 - Front LED > Power, EQ > Full Range, Signal Input > Line Level (I tried changing the Signal Input to Mic and I just got a loud buzzing noise). No dice.
*Apologies for the long explanation. I'm new to all this. I'm more of a "setting up" guy, than a "technical" guy.* All answers will be appreciated, while holding back on any negative feedback/answers please. Thank you in advance!
