Hi! <BR>i just bought a spacexpander "kit" everything is original, but i can`t make it reverberate, the audio signal goes through the preamp, so when i set the switch on it to "normal" it sends back a signal, but when i set it to "reverb only"i get nothing. <BR>The tank makes thunder sounds when i shake it so that works too, and i get a small buzz when i connect the cable that goes from "to input" to "input" that probably means that works too, the potentiometer only adds hiss noise (quite a lot of it) when i turn it all the way up, no reverb... can somebody please help!! thank you
without potentiometer there will be no reverb. <BR> <BR>here is how to <A HREF="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... 4922">make one</A> <BR> <BR>bless
Hey, thanks for the advice about adding the potentiometer to the Spacexpander. However, I did what you said and it still didn't work. It did add some buzz, which seems like a good thing because I know the Spacexpanders are supposed to be noisy. <BR>Possibly I am wiring the potentiometer wrong, but I tried a few diferent combinations. The sliding contact is the middle one, correct? <BR>In your explanation, you said that the other two contacts from the plug go into the ring contacts, but the way I am familiar with stereo plugs, is that there is a tip contact, a ring contact, and a sleve contact. Does it make a difference where on the plug the two other contacts from the pot go? <BR>I'm incredibly thankful for your help, and for your efforts in having the website and message board. Oh yea, and great music too.
ok.. i probably used the wrong terms. the sliding contact goes to the tip. the two other contacts go to the ring and to the sleeve (that's what i meant with "second ring") if you swap the ring and the sleeve i guess your pot will work in the opposite way - i.e. turn counterclockwise to get more reverb. <BR> <BR>if this still does not work i can't help. maybe you really have a defect in the circuit. try to find a radio repair guy who can check it <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /think.gif"> <BR>in this case show him the schematic in the <A HREF="http://www.interruptor.ch/images/spacex ... .htm">user manual</A>.
