    I've got a pair or Citronic PD1 Mk3's that i usually take to parties, just incase of an accident. The only problem is that one of 'em feeds back all the time when the volume is cranked up. I've checked all wiring inside and the mixer wiring and everything seems to be fine, what could it be?

    You say one of them. How do you know it's not both?
    Feedback is caused when the needles pick up vibration from the speakers.
    The louder the speakers become the more likely this is to happen.
    It sounds like you need to issolate your decks from any vibration.
    You could try putting half a tennis ball under each turntable foot.
    Or put a sheet of (thick/strong) glass under your decks as it has very good vibration damping properties.

    Cheers man, makes a lot of sense really. I'll try that the next party I play. I know it's definately not both because I've checked the fader levels on both decks. It was the one behind the speaker that was I was having trouble with. Thanks again man, I'm such a noob.
