Active Speakers Volume Help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have some active speakers which don't have volume controls on them and I don't know how to control the volume on them. The only way I have been able to do it is when plugged directly into my phone via adaptor. The speakers input via RCA connections and I don't have any way to control the volume when connecting to say a turntable. I looked online at volume controls but can't find anything suitable which allows audio input via RCA and outputs to RCA. Also I don't know if this would even work, any one have a solution??

What u want is a Level controller with RCA in/out.

You can make one yourself with a stereo potentiometer. Just cut an RCA stereo male to male cable and insert the potentiometer :D 

  

Or get a cheap one https://www.amazon.co.uk/CHELINK-Universal-Amplifier-Motorcycle-Speakers/dp/B076DBCGB5/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_bs_lp_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=VRKDQYHE6A5R535ZNY47

That setup with the pot would be very jank and could cause interference. Would be easier to buy a preamp with volume control on it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nobsound-Vacuum-Preamplifier-Digital-Control-Black/dp/B071VSTDQY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1552758782&sr=8-4&keywords=preamp


If you have any questions about ultra high end audio, dont be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Yes my audio stuff is 650,000 USD, I'm a dedicated audiophile/mastering engineer

 

(if you want to see my audio stuff, check my profile, it's too much to list here)
