I have a lot of Alesis gear that I truly love and from the minute I stated my home recording studio I always went with Alesis Monitor One and I upgraded to the MK2 Active Monitor One. However, since I got these I have noticed that I have to keep the right speaker set to 8.5 on the back input to match the left which is set to 10. The channels led's on my Mackie Onyx 1620 are showing and even signal being sent out through both channels. Can anyone advise cause this is a real problem that is causing me to think I have crap speakers.

BTW I am using identical xlr cables between the Mackie and the speakers

Hi AJ,

Thanks for your post! Have you tested other speakers with the outputs of that Mackie mixer? We just want to be sure of where this conflict is coming from, whether it's from the MKII's inputs or the outputs of the mixer. If it's definitely coming from the Alesis speakers, please reach out to our Technical Support team. Their contact information can be found on
