The two times I've heard a rattle, it's turned out to be a speaker pole component or similar. Those little units put out a lot of watts. Make absolutely sure it's your speakers and nothing else.

For home use, it's still possible to open ( a few screws to unscrew ) and disconnect the fan, it's not soldered, there is a connector, a 'plug'.
It's not getting hot while I don't really push the volume at home.


Hi frantz,
Can u you share or post a pic which screws to unscrew to open the k8 amd turn off the fan for home use? Of course also dont push volumes at home, so should be fine. How long have you been playing like this?

Thanks, Cheers Johannes

I noticed a rattle last night while using my K8.2 in the basement. I found that the mic cable release tab on the speaker was the culprit. The release tabs are spring loaded but plugging in the XLR cable makes the tab loose. I ended up putting a small piece of self-stick velcro on the tab to create pressure between the tab and XLR cable. Cheesy but it is solved for now.

Just checking in with all the K8.2 owners. Are you still happy? Does this work for you?

Reason: I'm still recommending these units to other keys players, just want to make sure it still floats your boat?

Absolutely love them. That low volume distortion I asked y'all about never went away, so I brought it into my local QSC auth repair shop and a new amplifier is on it's way. I had to gig with just one speaker last week, and although I missed the stereo spread, I forgot how powerful just one of these little beauties are.
