    Default Wiring Help

    Hello,
    I just got a KRK Rokit 5 and I am having some issues when it comes to wiring it up. I mostly use it with my computer but on occasion use my Traktor Kontrol S2 on it. I started first with a simple 1/4" to 3.5mm cord (Hosa Mono Interconnect 3.5mm TRS to 1/4" TS)there was often a bit of distortion (fuzziness) when I listened at louder volumes. Now it set myself up with a 1/4" to two RCAs (LiveWire TRS-202) then those into a Y cable into 3.5mm (LiveWire YRA-154) and I can only hook one half the RCAs together or I lose all bass (lows). I'm pretty confused to say the least. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    THANKS!

    plug S2 into computer via usb, set S2 as soundcard for all sounds, plug KRKs into S2 via the RCA or 1/4in,

    This is because you are connecting a balanced output into an unbalanced input. Each TRS socket on the rear of the S2 is a mono output for a single speaker. Use standard 1/4" TRS leads to connect each speaker to the S2.
