    Ok i am a very happy man right now as my 3rd deck has arrived..

    But i am not sure where to connect the 3rd earth cable

    I have a numark DXM09 mixer..

    [​IMG]

    I have currently got the other 2 earth cables in the 2 available slots on the mixer (Channel 2 and 3) but there is not one for channel 1, where does the 3rd go?!

    Please help!!!

    I imagine you just put it on one with the other earthing cable, shouldn't make a difference.

    I'd wait for proven ideas though :p

    Well, you earth them so electricity can run down that and into the mixer, and out the power wire into the earth socket in the wall. Which is the easiest route.

    So its not gonna run up into the other deck, its just gonna go down.

    Is there nothing on wikipedia about earthing or on the web about this?

    The third, little wire with the hook, or bare wire at the end connects to the little screw on the back of the mixer marked GROUND (or GND or EARTH). To do so, unscrew the GROUND connector on the back of the mixer, place BOTH of the metal ends of the ground wires from the decks in the gap you've created by unscrewing, then screw the screw tight again, wedging the wires in place. You've now earthed/grounded the decks.

    All good :D

    cheers mate!

    Plugged it in and it works, but had to whack the gain full and then back for it to not be fuzzy, and then kept switiching between L + R speakers.. Wiring problems? Used to happen consistently with my 3rd channel so guess its just mixer troubles, it doesnt bother me too much tbh.. So really writing all that was pointless.

    But anyway

    Cheers noize mate!
