  • Can't get passive speakers to come on

    I have a problem with a system that installed in my house before I bought it. Forgive me if I misstate something - I am not an expert on how all of this works. I have a BEOSound 9000 with two active speaker sets (BEOLab 8000 and BEOLab 3500) and three passive sets (CX100 and two others) with transceivers. The passives route through a ML/MCL Converter and a relay box (MCL 2A BLI). I can not get the passive speakers to respond to the remote at the transceiver. Nothing seems to happen. I have this problem

    Thanks for all of the suggestions to this point. I'm traveling until the weekend, so will re-engage on Monday. But if anyone has any ideas in the meantime, specifically about why my transceiver red lights are all opposite of what they should be, I'll be checking in here. Thanks!

    Our postings apparently crossed somewhere in the Atlantic. I did not do the Powerlink thing, so will need to look at doing that later. On the red light, it is currently off when in standby, and only flashes on when I hit mute of any other command from a remote. Any idea what this means?

    Not sure if I did what you suggest correctly, but here's what I tried. Right now, The cable from L and R speaker out from the MCL/ML goes to the Link Cable connectors on the MCL2A (where the 6 wires and shield are also twisted with another cable/wires which I believe heads off through the wall to my 2 upstairs bedrooms). The third set of speakers is connected to the L and R speaker out from the MCL2A - this set has similar plugs to the ones coming out of the MCL/ML so this is the set I tried

    Thanks Peter. I have power to the MCL/ML and all of the connections look fine as far as I can tell. Again, I'm in over my head a bit here but are there any tests I can do to isolate whether one of these is working correctly (or incorrectly). For example, is there any way to bypass the MCL2A and test whether there is signal available to go from the MCL/ML to the speakers?

  • Passive Speaker problems

    The house I purchased 4 years ago came with a BEO system, which all worked fine until recently. Now my passive speakers are not responding and I can't figure out why. I'm no expert with this system so bear with me - the system is comprised of a BeoSound 9000, 2 active speaker sets (BeoLab 8000 and 3500, both working fine), 3 passive speaker sets (CX100 and 2 others), an ML/MCL converter, and an MCL X-TRA speaker kit for each passive speaker set (transceivers plus one MCL2A relay box). Now
