its not a pot, it works great, but sense my PC audio card can deliver bigger power over the audio jacks if i turn up the power and volume over like 60% in windows, i can't max out the volume knob on the mixer it starts to distort and input indicators on the mixer are only blinking -20db

i think before i had the mic i had it hooked up in a different way and it worked perfectly and VU meter went all the way up to +6db till it started to distort. now i have input as CD/Tape, maybe those are not designed to have such high power input like my PC can give. without the mixer board the speakers doesnt distort even on everything set to max

can't wait to test it out, hope it works like i think it should :D

actually lowest power mode for audio and 60-70% volume in windows is max the mixer can take on that specific input (sound card says it does "120dB SNR stereo playback output" :b_nidea: )
Image

every stage adds like +3db (guessing, no idea how much it actually adds but it gets louder by quite a bit on each one without touching volume in windows. I dont have an oscilloscope to see where it actually starts to clip and distort :emoji28: to my ear it sounds clean even maxed out, so :b_nidea: )

got the cables, but it looks like the way i have it hooked up is the best possible way to hook it up, so... oh well, have extra cables now :D

probably gonna order new better mixer, that one has more outputs and EQ for all channels :emoji28:

So i measured how much power AC is pulling from the wall, oh boy... :b_ow:

Fan Low - 91W
Fan High - 115W
AC with Fan Low - 930W+
AC with Fan High - 1000W+

:b_hcrap: well, going to see if i can find my wallet now lol

I mean i know AC needs lots of power and this is rated as 950W unit, but still, damn :D
Still worth it, when its 31+C outside and im sitting in front of a monitor wall not even breaking a sweat :emoji23: turning off AC for 5-10mins and its RIP

cool site btw, tells me how much money is going out of the AC exhaust vent :emoji23:

Yeah running an AC costs a lot of money! Luckily ours runs on solar power.
