Way back in the disco 80s we witness a new specialist music audio power amplifier setting new benchmarks in industry standard of power amplifier requirements with bulky thunderous racking model units like the pro Crest Audio 8001, Crest Audio 9001 and a massive mighty monster the Crest 10001. It’s possible that they will set fresh rival standers to QSC rmx and Ecler Pam with there new upfront designed CC series amps.
This two channels Crest Vs900 audio power amplifier integrates a well structured cost-effective electronic layout design with great degree of component precision providing a stereo sound audio exceptional sonic accuracy. Crest is well known for its long-term working reliability and the sort after down to earth features that are frequently required in a variety of sound system rental environments of professional disco entertainment applications.
The crest audio amplifier Vs900’s has a really remarkably pleasant pricing to performance ratio this is mainly resulted from the innovative acoustic engineering and highly efficient state of the art manufacturing process at the Crest’s modern USA factory plant facility accompanied by nearly two decades of being at the forefront of sound equipment professional amplifier designing. There has been no cutting of corners or compromises in the electronic PCB component selection or the testing quality control.
In every single respect, this audio crest Vs 900 endorses the legendary mobile disco Audio tradition of on tour roadworthy ruggedness and strait up sound reliability.
The Vs900 amp owns the same control type of circuitries components the Tour Class protection switch out features as used on the Crest’s CA 12, CKS, CKV 400, CKX and crest audio cpx 2600 Series power club amplifiers. This is reason why the Vs900 can easily endure and overcome virtually any sort of mishap, sound problem or PA system stress coming from uncontrolled ‘upstream’ sound frequency oscillation to extreme club nightlife ambient temperature heating or accidental DJ speaker monitor shorting it without damage to internal component circuitry PCB or other connected dj speakers on the sound system.
Each one of the sound channels can deliver a minimum of 250 watts at 8 ohms, 450 watts at 4 ohms and 550 watts at 2 ohms 1kHz 1% THD+N. In the bridged mono mode, it is able to comfortably deliver 900 watts at 8 ohms and 1100 watts into 4 ohms 1kHz 1% THD+N. The vs crest audio power amplifier is front to side panel fan cooled, with a two speed AC fan units. The VS 900 crest audio amp has circuitry to protect itself and the speaker inductive loading from output short circuits so no DC voltage on outputs and thermal cutout overload protection.
The amplifier dose also include circuitry to gradually increase gain to attenuator setting levels at the point the vs amplifier unit is first turned on, and circuitry for impedance sensing and automatic active clip limiting.
The main downside to this amp is on the back panel there is only one quart inch jack input this makes it hard to slave a second unit and not so versatile for wiring up with no XLR’S or even a extra phone-0 input would be better nothing at all. I personally would rather pay a bigger price to have these extra facilities onboard.

The Lighting safety wire cables are manufactured from flexible 4mm steel with a safe working load of 35 Kg which is quiet adequate for most Tri-lite stage rig lighting system effects.
It’s defiantly not worth the risk of penny pinching you should have one safety wire anchor for very thing that can go with a swing.
What if your main disco centerpiece light fell and killed the bride at the wedding, where would you hide your head or what would you say on the mic. “Ha the silly thing could have cached it, that’s broke the lamp now”.
Eyeleted carbine hook and loop lighting safety wire are something all mobile Lighting engineers and Karaoke Dj services should be using.
The Dj pro Stanton 680 v3 cartridge stylus needle is legendary in the sound scratching club world with its superior high quality sound reproduction and extremely responsive to the low end frequencies. Here we have a top classic club Dj pro cartridge needle that is most forgiving suspension design format. This Dj pro Stanton 680 v3 cartridge is considered to be one of the topnotch mixing cartridges on the planet for hip-hop dance groove scratching.
The Dj Stanton 680 v3 wide band 20Hz to 18 kHz frequency response can provide the high energy record sound playback and giving you an extra power punch you require to erupt and quake the party nightlife dance floor whether playing 80s funk dance or mix scratching hip-hop or 5HQ jungle.
It’s a very strong and robust piece of kit the Dj pro Stanton 680 v3 cartridges can function equally as well as a scratch needle as it can as a disco stylus.

There is on such thing as a car Subwoofer bassbox the word sub come from subsonic below the human earring range.
The inside of a large car in only about 15 feet max across the diagonals, now look at this frequency to distance example 50 Hz has 22.6 foot wave length and 25Hz has 45.2 feet wave length. So a 15 foot car will have a maximum low frequency of its physical internal dimensions of about 80 Hz and that is well within the earring of even an old age pensioner. The audio sound waveforms lower then 80 Hz are just physical to large to fit in to a small car. So that has proven the point that you can not have a car subwoofer bass-box well unless you had a covetable car pulling a 20 foot trailer and had the big bass sub woofer mounted right at the back of the trailer then that mite be ok.
So next time you bump into Mr. Car tires wheel spinner and you hear him giving the full Monty about his boy race Alpine car subsound system, you can now shoot him one in the foot with what I have just told you.
I must say this about car subs in my Subwoofer bassbox review they are first class in appearance, but perhaps not the pink one in the speaker picture unless your a new disco girl racers.
The Reflector disco panels can be easily stuck to any flat or curved surface (e.g. box light diffuser panels disco frontage) to create an eye catching and spectacular feature.
Another great point to the Litepanels is they only will take a small amount of room in the music mobile dj van and are very lightweight to carry which makes a most nice refreshing change for professional sound equipment rental gear.
The Reflector reflex disco panels are available in sheets of 17 inch squares.

In the 60s hippie disco vintage era the was a increasing demand for component high fidelity home music systems has focused attention on loudspeaker enclosures. The enclosure is designed both for appearance and as a component of an acoustical system. A properly designed cabinet however cannot make a poorly designed speaker operate satisfactorily nor can a well designed speaker perform efficiently when housed in an inferior enclosure. The retro disco vintage stereo speakers and the enclosure must be of good design and work together in harmony as one unit. When this is accomplished response of the system is uniform and the efficiency is good down to the very low bass and up to or beyond the highest frequency the ear can hear.
The prime reason for an enclosure or baffle is to separate the sound radiated from the rear of a speaker diaphragm or cone so that it dose not cancel the radiation generated by the front of the cone. A baffle then is a separator that increases the distance between the sources of the front and back of the diaphragm to such dimensions that the wave length of the lowest useful frequency is small in comparison to the distance of separation.
This type of 1960 hippie disco vintage stereo speakers sound cabs were just the ticket to make the Wild psychedelic flower power festivals go with a 60s hippie groovy man swing.

From their Bangor, Co. Down, base, EL&D have developed a commitment to modem design techniques and as such are well equipped with the latest in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and drafting facilities. This allows the company to offer the client an economic use of often limited time.
"We recognize that our job is to bring projects to life," comments EL&D's Harry Filmer. "Whether you commission us to design, supply and install the whole interior and lighting audio system or simply ask us to consult on the project, you can be sure that our know-how will result in success. Our commitment to "Excellence through Accuracy' has helped build a reputation which has taken us to projects throughout Ireland and into popular clubs in Europe and North America."The project management provided by the company includes regular site supervision and co-ordination of contractors ensuring that the project programmed and budget are adhered to, and that the work is carried out to the desired standard. This level of service and commitment has not only been instrumental in the longevity of Exciting Decor thus far, but will no doubt maintain their profile for many more years to come.
As part of a special DJ disco hire Philippines blog magazine feature, we take a look at just some of the recent projects that have been completed by Exciting lighting Decor
Those of you familiar with the nightclub industry in Ireland will be aware that most discotheques operate as pan of a hotel. What began as a way of tackling the obtuse licensing laws has developed into standard business practice with obvious advantages- and not just for the amorous clubber who manages to take advantage of the sleeping arrangements,
Venue club OTO (which apparently stands for Over Twenty One the target audience) is situated in the Farnham Arms Hotel in Cavan and has benefited from the huge amount of commercial traffic the hotel has enjoyed. Oliver Sheils, its owner, has attracted plenty of business to the hotel with its restaurant, pub and function room, Now Club OTO is increasing trade with a fine blend of powerful sound, interesting lighting and fresh design - all provided in one package by ELGD (formerly Exciting Lighting and Decor Unlike many clubs in Ireland with affinity to top hotels, OTO is a sizeable venue. Its huge cavernous interior gives it the feel of a proper club parties as opposed to a space that is doing its best to imitate one. This is because OTO was purposely built as an extension 10 the hotel and was designed as to make it an easy option to add another floor above. The signs are that this will eventually happen because the club events has been so popular, regularly filling its 2,000 capacity.The nightclub feel is also helped by the sheer physical presence of the loudspeaker system-always a benefit if a promoters club is to be taken seriously. The system represents the first installation of Court Acoustics c2 bi-amped full range cabinets designed with the installation market in mind. However because of its combination of powerful output and clarity Court hope that other applications, such as cinema, can be met. Harry Filmer, proprietor of ELGD is particularly pleased with the results as it is the first time they have worked with Court speakers The Count dance system that we installed has excelled in every aspect and it is pleasing that it offered a lot more than its spectacular light technical specification suggested.
The cabinets are flown from the specially constructed balcony whilst the Court DSB 2000 sub bass units are positioned under the movable stage which is utilized for fashion shows and live events
One of the advantages of having Exciting lighting Decor provides the whole lighting package is that they realized the importance that the best stage effects lighting play a big part in the overall design of the luxury nightlife club atmosphere. The special effects lighting has been thoughtfully incorporated both above the dance floor and in peripheral areas. Six custom frames made wrought iron lighting rigs surround the dance-floor as opposed to one singular structure hanging directly above it. From these is suspended Clay Paky Stage Light 300 moving heads and a range of Genius effects - all controlled by an ALS Enigma Micro 1024 desk? Great lighting Decor swear by the controllers estimating that their installations make up about 75% of the total Enigma installs in Ireland.
In the three bar areas Abstract AVR's instantly create different environments with atmospheric lighting in six different colours -particularly effective when downlit on to the glass block wall on the balcony level. This feature does a great deal to fit in with the overall design which is very colorful and has a Mediterranean feel with its orange/ terracotta wall finishes. Practical measures are also incorporated into the design such as the decorative wrought iron meshing which is used to great effect on the balcony to act as a net for any falling bottles or worse.
Oliver Sheils estimates that the OTO project has cost something in the region of 2.5 million to gel this far - and this could only be phase one if profit margins continue to rise. But he's delighted: "I'm overwhelmed by the results of the whole project and the positive response from clientele to love in this Club dancing OTO has been staggering." Roll on phase two.It's not often that you get to visit a nightclub in such an idyllic setting as this. The Lakeside Manor in Virginia, Co Cavan, overlooks a lake that is particularly renowned for its fishing qualities which, when combined with the fact that it is in Ireland, makes you understand why this is such a popular tourist attraction. My visit coincided with a snow storm in February and one hell of choppy water but I still wanted to stay here for a few days just to chill out. Alas, the Night budget wouldn't allow me such an extravagance so a quick visit to the Icon club hot spots here had to suffice.
The Lakeside Manor consists of a fun pub, a food restaurant, a party function room, the Icon discotheque and as of the summer time it will also feature a much needed in a luxury hotel resort. As such, the event venue has something for everyone and is understandably very popular location for wedding receptions. In fact, Exciting lighting Decor began work on the complex from scratch about two years ago as part of a five year plan but icon proved so successful that the project has raced ahead with the capital it has generated.Owners Jim and Meabh Brady wanted something for the younger crowd so the music policy reflects this and generally attracts a younger age group than both OTO and Vibe. The interior is also youthful in appearance with vibrant colours and zebra skin patterns on the top of columns dotted throughout the luxury bar and grill club lounges Being so close to the lake, EL and D came across a few problems when digging down to create room for the sunken dancefloor due to the ceiling's low height. The water table level was such that the specified txd118 Turbosound bass bins could not fit so the shallower OHM BR-215 bass enclosures were used instead. A txd Turbosound Floodlight Skeleton system was still the preferred flown mid/high option however. The sound from Icon can be zoned throughout the complex and is often employed to give the function room which has a capacity of 250 a fun club atmosphere.
The floor lighting is an eclectic mix of moving heads, colour changers and scanners. GLP Patend 575 HMI Lamp moving heads are combined with effect style Coemar Versatiles. Genius Spectra colour changers and Super Quark projectors. Once again, the control comes from an ALS Enigma -this time the Micro 2. All this gives the small, sunken dancefloor a very busy feel in a good dress code club house that has a capacity of 900.
With their step by step approach to developing this site, the Bradys and EL&D have sensibly created a professional operation with room for further expansion. The introduction of the hotel rooms will surely increase business to new heights so perhaps Icon's takings will speed up the building process once again. Who knows where it will all end?Situated just 20 minutes down the road from Icon is Vibe in Kells, which is once again part of a hotel - The Headford Arms - that also has its own very profitable bar. When EL&D were asked to refurbish the existing club building, a lot of space wasn't being utilized. The entrance to this popular club night was a long corridor with toilets which was criminally underused so EL&D set about creating the Kelltic Bar in the space. Now the whole operation is so popular, that the Celtics is used both as a feeder and overspill bar as well as, operating a very popular Thursday night independently with a DJ until 2am.
Vibe opened in June and, under the careful management of young entrepreneur Vincent Duff, has attracted an affluent crowd of over 25s. Consequently there is no competition with Icon. Vincent requested a very intimate and intricate venue so his customers could find their own corners to socialise - an experience enhanced by the array of Abstract AVR's that have confused the odd imbiber towards the end of a night.
Again very vibrant in design, Vibe's curved walls are finished in a pink stonewash effect with a raised area featuring floor-to-ceiling lighting.
Some colour wheels Abstract Futurescan 2 and VR8 plastic scanners were retained from the existing job. These were added to with Clay Paky Stage Light 300 moving heads and PSL Multibeams as well as a custom made Argon Ion neon display lasers. Control, inevitably, comes from an ALS Enigma Micro 1024 channel desk.
Sound throughout the dance area of the club is provided by OHM BR-2I5 bass bins and BR-15 mid-top cabinets fitted on OHM CFE BR flying eye kits. OHM is also used in the Kelltic Bar with a touch of effects lighting to give it a clubby feel. The existing peripheral system consisting of Dare 15" cabs has been retained. Like, OTO and Icon, Vibe also benefits from RA2000 C-Audio amplification and a BSS Omnidrive reflecting the professionalism EL&D undertake in their installations.
Vincent Duff is a young man with big ideas. He is determined to make Vibe a luxury club for the more discerning clientele even though he admits that it breaks his heart when he sees queues of desperate locals clamoring to get in to the 650 capacity venue. It is an important point for any club operator to remember however, that in order to attract the right paying customers you sometimes have. To turn away guaranteed income to do it.

If your head unit amplifier circuit has completely stopped functioning then, the problem perhaps will be very easy to do the diagnosis repair work on it.
The first thing to do in a systematic diagnosis is to switch it off open the lid and have a look to see if there is some thing overuse to the eye. If you see a burnt out resistor on the PCB write down the resistor color coding before you touch it, if you place your fingers on the old resistor the burnt-out paint will most likely flake of then you will have no idea what the color coding band rings are to replace it.
The next task at hand is the cleaning out of the QSC amplifier layout its semiconductor components on the printed circuit board (PCB), heat sink and cooling fans. Get a new 1 inch paint brush and dust off the entire box so there is no old dust remaining. Then clean down the PCB with some PCB fluid cleaner from an electronics shop do this in a well ventilated room because there are fumes from the cleaning fluid, this should only takes 2 minutes to evaporate and it will be all dry. A spring clean will do it the world of good.
One of the main reason why sounds disco electronics apparatus is failing, it is because of over heating, a component can burn out but still half work a bit like a bucket with a small hole in the bottom. It still holds sparkling water but not very good. If you find your amp to be working but sounding terrible there’s a good chance that it has half burnt-out electronic amplifier component a resistor or a transistor. The electrolytic capacitors or condenser look a bit like tiny coke cans and don’t usually blow they are normally ok unless the amp has been in storage for 3 months. The electrolytic capacitors had any power applied to it for a long time the electrolyte inside will start to brake down.
The circuit diagram show how to Reforming Electrolytic Capacitor.
The electronic manufacturers of component declare that Reforming Electrolytic Capacitors is possible. Most broke down electrolytes can be recovered with following the correct Reforming procedure, this is regardless within reason to how long a time period have been in storage and unused. The repair process of Reforming is to a set rated voltage applied a cross a 30k ohms at 10 watts resistance for 5 minutes with a additional thirty seconds for every week of storage time. When the Electrolytic reforms its measurable voltage applied over the circuit resistor will begin to start dropping down. If the resistor voltage does not go down lower than 10% of the applied original corrective voltage succeeding an hour has past, then the cap is most likely past rescue.
The circuit schematic diagram shows the amplifier power supply layout.
Have a look at the main power supply and fuses, the plug on the back on the box and the two fuses for each power rail. The on tour disco power Amplifier Fuses normally blow for a reason so it’s best practice to try to find out why they have blown not just swap it for a new one.
How to test an amplifier power transformer this check requires identifying the transformer power supply (direct current) DC rail voltages to find them is simple look for a bridge Rectifier and large capacitor combination immediately located after the primary transformer, there will be the two power fuses 20 mm on the PCB. Test the transformer output range voltages, they will be approximately 94 -0- 94 volts dc but take care, this can give you one big belt and I mean big you will remember it 20 years later. If one of the voltages is much lower than the other then it’s the power supply or some thing is pulling it down so disconnect the sup from the main transistor circuit board and test again. If now the voltages are the same then the problem in on the circuit board. The power transformer will most likely look burnt and dark brown if it has stop working. You can replace it with the same size or a bigger VA one as long as the rail output voltages are the same.
How to test a bridge Rectifier, this is really just 4 diodes, so you must have the power off short out the main Capacitors with an insulated screw driver because they will still hold there charge. Rectifier circuit layouts mostly are half wave or bridge. Then put the digital multimeter across one of the individual diodes in one direction it will have a high resistance and in the other direction a low resistance if no then its faulty the same goes for test a zener diode as well. That’s about it for the 2450 QSC amplifier power supply diagnostic investigation.
Testing the transistor’s characteristics, the check is about the same procedure as the diodes test but there are 3 component legs Collector, emitter and base you will have to find (Google) the specifications characteristic for each transistor from its coding number but there is a good chance there will be two of the same on the PCB so you can compare one against the other. But if the semiconductor transistor is still in circuit you will find funny readings on, you’re across auto multimeter. It’s best to have an oscilloscope with a component test function. If you find a field transistor switch that is faulty when your ordering a new one remember the case number if its connected or strapped to a metallic casing heatsink, you can have the same transistor but in a different case shell it will work but if wont fit and you mite have to do extensive modification to get in place. It’s possible to replace a transistor with high voltages but not higher gain to change the gain you really have to know a lot about electronics but it can be done but far out of reach for the average DJ amplifier repair work to tackle.
The best format for the on tour disco amplifier circuit schematic layout should be arranged so it starts with the physically smaller transistor parts moving up to the larger higher current transistor switching components of the main output.
