Hi Matthijs,

Thanks for the reply. I just discovered the bridged setup in the manual and also read the page 28 of this thread. Sorry!

I will use one Beyma 12BR70 per module which has 8ohms.

Me again.

I tried the configuration like discribed, but the modules both show up as Master. What am I doing wrong?

I can't seem to get any audio out of my unit...

I've done everything right according to the manual, and I like to think im no idiot with electronics.. I'm using the analog input, and I've forced the input in the control software.

When I touch the other end of the analog cable connected to the amplifier I should get a buzzing noice, but that doesnt happen.

There is signal to the drivers for sure, since there is a very low amount of backround when I put my ear right next to them.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Default volume is very low at first startup. Have you pressed vol+ _many_ times on the control panel PCB?

I am getting towards the end of a 3 way project using two AS2.100 Digital units and separate plate amps for the bass woofers. I have managed to configure the AS2.100 units correctly but I have had a few issues, some of which are ongoing.

Firstly, I was unable to connect to the AS2.100 units from my Macbook Pro running Windows 7 64 through Bootcamp. The software runs, but saving of filter settings doesn't appear to work. Attempting to access the settings page hangs the software.

I then went to another old laptop running XP professional. I was able to connect to the AS2.100 units, create filters and load them. Saving of filters didn't work on this platform either, and nor did the settings page. I'm using the current 2.3 version of the software.

I'm very happy with the sound and they can be made to work, but I was wondering if anyone has found a way around the saving issue, as it's pretty inconvenient to recreate the filters every time I want to tweak the speakers. Or am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions?

Regards,

Tom

Just to let users know, I talked through the issues above with supports at hypex and you can get around the saving issue if you make sure you are physically plugged into an AS2.100 when you first create your filters. After that you don't need to be plugged in.

Also, if you're having trouble getting to the settings page, just make sure you're doing your measurements at 48kHz. That's all you can really change through settings really, and it's probably just best to measure at that sample rate.

I still haven't had any luck with connecting from my macbook running Win7 64 through bootcamp, but this probably has to do with my laptop more than anything else. I'm using an ancient HP (XPSP3 32bit) laptop to connect and that works fine

I am really impressed and happy with the AS2.100s. I've made many changes to my crossover settings and have been able to tune my speakers very nicely to my tastes. It does allow easy tweaking and this has meant weekly (sometimes daily) adjustments to the filters, and the permanent presence of a measurement microphone and stand in my living room

I've set up the AS2.100 without the keypad, because I really dont need it. It seems however that this is not possible, as the input selections and volume settings programmed with the HFD software is not saved for the next power-up. When the unit is powered off with the power switch, all settings go back to default, meaning there is no sound.... According to Hypex support, saving of the settings is done only when the unit is placed in standby with the remote keypad.

I have asked Hypex to change this, so that input selection and volume is saved also when they are set with the HFD software.

I'd like to add that the unit (when it finally works... the HFD is a bit buggy), sounds really good. Fabulous performance for a very low price tag I think.
