Audix D6 mic problem/repair
Posted 12 November 2006 - 08:38 PM
My church has an Audix mic set in which the D6 kick mic is playing up. It was used by someone in a battle of the bands competition and since then keeps cutting out. It was working fine when I sound checked it this morning but then 5 minutes later it stopped working again. No signal was coming through at all. It did the same thing the previous week.
1) Has anyone got any idea what may be causing this?
2) Is it possible to open up the D6 mic to look inside/repair?
I left the mic at the venue so can't answer my second question by looking right now. Oh, and we've tried the different cable, multi channel desk channel etc and it doesn't make a difference.
Thanks in advance.

If your set is out of warranty it may still be worth getting in touch with the company or at least where you got the set from to see if they can give any advice. A poor connection would be a guess, with the high input and vibration a kick drum mic is presented with would explina an intermittent fault like that you describe.
At the times where the mic IS working, is it working as normal or is it a weak signal? perhaps a distorted signal? or a signal different to that of a normal D6?

I think the mics came direct from Audix and are over a year old so are out of warranty. Think it looks like I may have to some how take it apart. If anyone knows how to do that, please let me know.....

I would contact the lead UK Audix dealer http://www.stirlingt...ducts_audix.htm and see if they can help.
If that fails - why not drop Audix a line and see what happens?
Just a couple of thoughts.

I'd guess that's why the OP said:

I picked the mic up earlier and just opened it up, you can't really do much with it though. Most of the connections that I could see seemed to be intact. I'll try contacting the lead dealer over the next couple of days.
Somehow I doubt that I will have it working by next Thursday when I need it for a gig! Oh well.
Thanks for your help guys.

Just I really like the sound of the D6.

I work in Shoreham, so not a million miles away... Got some Audix Tom mics too - D4s I believe.
Eitherway, I hope you get it sorted.
