    Default Help Needed Really Bad! (PA/Speakers)

    So.. Today i finally got my Traktor Kontrol S2 and i am really happy with it i have been messing around with Virtual DJ for a while now and i wanted to get serious with DJing, BUT i have no knowledge at all when it comes to setting up speakers and stuff with soundcards etc..
    i have 2 problems,

    1. is there any way i can remove or replace the audio system thing for something smaller for easier transportation?

    2. with my RCA cable if i put both L and R in my S2 i have no bass at all but if i turn the audio system balance knob all the way to the left or right it works fine, or if i remove either L or R so i keep just 1 in my S2 it works perfect too did i connect my speakers wrong or something?

    please look at the pics i attached to see how i connected everything and thanks in advance for your time and help

    Sounds like your system is goosed. I'd seriously consider some new speakers.

    Plug the RCA's from the S2 into the RCA In on the back of the receiver. Might just have a bad channel. Also try a different set of RCA cables they could be faulty.

    Take a pic of the whole back of what you are plugging your RCAs into. You have it in the VCR input, might have something to do with it....

    You can pick up the alesis m1 520 pretty cheap and they get good reviews.
    Usually each speaker has an input on the back so you just run a cable from the controller to the speaker.

    Take a look at this for the m-audio http://www.amazon.co.uk/3-5mm-Stereo..._bxgy_ce_img_b
    You just plug one speaker into the wal socket, plug the other speaker into it and run your RCA (although Id use trs) into the main speaker
