M80 volume slider does nothing
I have just purchased an M80 and installed it with a stereo jack along side my Anthem StagePro for a stereo setup. I quickly realized that the volume slider does absolutely nothing. I have only tried it in passive mode, I haven't even installed the battery in it yet.
Is the volume slider supposed to not function in passive mode?
That sounds like a pretty extensive setup! The Anthem and the M80 in stereo should give you a ton of tonal possibilities.
The M80's volume wheel is only connected to the Active portion of the M80's circuitry. So if you are in Passive Mode, the volume control will not work.
I'd love to hear more about your setup, if you ever get a chance to post more.
That sounds great!
You might also want to try inverting the phase on the Anthem preamp. If the two systems are out of phase, the sound could have some odd overtones.
Feel free to post any recordings or videos of your setup, if you get time to put anything together.
Thanks for sharing!
