How to check if dip switch is faulty?

Youngling Viestejä: 6 Liittymispäivä: 14.8.2017 Viimeisimmät viestit


I just got a pair of 8030C and even though unlikely, I thought that the dip switch may be faulty.

I turned on the treble tilt and didn't hear much of a difference. Previously, when I am using the 8020C, switching on any dip switches produce a soft 'boom' sound from the speakers (which I know isn't right but at least I got audible confirmation that I've changed something), and the treble tilt is easily audible. 

This time round, it did not produce any sound on the 8030C. I tried with the most obvious bass roll-off and it works just fine so I was wondering if it is only the treble tilt that has some issues (I know it is unlikely though)

Is there anything I can do to be 100% sure it is working just right?

We have changed the dip switch operation in the new revisions, for example 8030C. They will operate more silent now and there is also a small delay (0.5 to 1 second) before they active after you have changed the dip switch position.

Tweeter tilt might be difficult to hear. Taking a frequency response measurement would be best way to see the effect. But typically if there would be a problem, all switches would not operate, not just a single one.
