    I think I found the solution! mine is completely silent now! I had an output RCA on a channel from my sd player with a cable to XLR and had 2 pins Bridge on the XLR and that in he sq5. it turns out that the mixer can’t handle that and this is the solution

    Was the RCA to XLR on an input on the SQ or on an output.
    Using it on an input you would tie XLR pin3 to pin 1 ground, using it on an output
    you would only connect to XLR pins 1 for ground and Pin 2+ for the tip of the RCA.
    Ideally you should be using a transformer or an active isolation / balanced to unbalanced
    conversion between the RCA and the mixer.

    I have another question! , we are tape artists, and often plug into other mixers for a new act, but several colleagues have already plugged into another mixer, now they accidentally had Phantom power turned on, and yes then you blow the sq5’s output! how can you prevent this “secure”

    You need to use transformer isolation be the output of your mixer and the input to another mixer….unless you are fully in control of the mixer you are connecting to and keep the phantom power off on the input.

    Something like this……https://www.radialeng.com/product/twin-iso

    The transformer will block phantom power.

    Hello I have the same problem with my SQ6, a pop that comes out on my auxiliaries in a short and loud way as if someone had just unplugged a microphone without having mutated it. It does this every 15 minutes or so. It’s quite annoying whether live or recording studio. It startles everyone and it’s not at all pleasant for the ears. Not to mention my returns that get this clicking noise. My firmware is at version 1.5.4

    j’ai le même problème avec ma SQ6, un pop qui sort sur mes auxiliaires de manière bref et fort comme si quelqu’un venait de débrancher un micro sans l’avoir muté. Ça fait ça toutes les 15 minutes environs. C’est assez gênant que se soit en live ou studio d’enregistrement. Ça fait sursauter tous le monde et c’est pas du tout agréable pour les oreilles. Sans compter mes retours qui se prennent ce bruit de claquement. Mon firmware est à la version 1.5.4

    Hi peterzoetermeer, your video is inaccessible can you upload the video again?
    Perhaps can you describe which cable you found faulty?
    I suspect a similar error with me, a slight bump sometimes causes the error which indicates a hardware failure.
