4K,6K,8K Series / SSL 4048E,all channels flickering
« Last post by toolstudio on July 01, 2024, 06:29:41 AM »
Hi,

this is my first writing.

I have a big problem with my SSL 4048E. In my actual production, the 4048E startet "flickerings" on all channels.

It switchs Line / Mic.
When it switches, also the "to routing" gets of.

I switched the Main Bus off, then its not "flickering" anymore. The EQ led is not "flicking", so I guess its not a PSU thing.

I just could video this, and here is a Link:

Does anybody has an idea ? The Main Bus lamps are usual, no "flickerings" and it could switch the Status's.

thanks, Wolfgang

He sends drums to DRE 2000, rev1, EMT 246...  with use of sends on his console, at least one send is sending to 2 reverbs

FX returns coming up on the stereo channels bucket to the left for each fx.

All channels is not going to all fx,vocals is not going to the drum reverbs, thats another send which sends to Lexicon 480, REV5...  and then those return on unik stereo channels

it depends (as always),

I also use them at lower voltages when I am after lowest possible noise.
There are external controls buyable which change the voltage depending on the temperature.

One thing to mention though is, I read that you have to be careful not to break them when installing.
The whole thing is very light and because of that the material is easy to bend or break.
I didn't have any of these problems so far with these fans - in total I might have about 10 of these installed and never had a problem.

You get quite some information about these when reading carefully through the manufacturers description.

Cheers,
Matt

Looks nice, and pretty cheap compared, and you run those on 12v ?

For PSU purposes, I usually use http://www.silenx.com/de/ixtremaprofans.asp

They do have the best airflow / noise relation

As I dont know the 4000 (I am a 5000 user) I recommend checking the current fans for their airflow and go as near as possible to these values.
I use the above mentioned fans in my SSL 5k regulator racks.

They are not PWM controllable (afaik) but the deliver high airflow at pretty low noise.

Cheers

Can anyone recommend a less noisy fan to replace old ones in the PSU`s for SSL 4000

You will probably need to split it off an existing BICC power cable in the centre section area. Typically there is one connected under the keyboard (wire colours red, green, blue, orange, brown).

From there, make a cable with a BICC one end, and a d-Sub 9 the other, as per the S152E pinout.
