Check Mate SPL Meters

CM-170

Today, there is a need to know just how loud your surroundings really are. The CM-170 is an affordable IEC 61672-1 Type II SPL meter that competes with some of the best SPL meters on the market. The CHECK MATES are inexpensive tools that everybody working in loud environments should own. Windscreen and protective case are included with the CHECK MATE models.  The CHECK MATE series SPL (Sound Pressure Level) meters, first introduced in early 2003, allow musicians, sound contractors, and others to measure SPL in decibels (dB). A decibel is defined as the unit for measuring relative loudness of a sound. We have expanded our line from one CHECK MATE SPL Meter to four products in the category. We have sold thousands of units to working musicians, DJs, police departments, sound contractors, racetracks, etc... The CM-170 is the latest in the line of Galaxy Audio SPL Meters. The CM-170 is similar to our CM-160 model, except that it has Data Logging with Clock feature, Fast/Slow Time Weighting, and Electronic Calibration. The CM-170 comes complete with a carry case, windscreen, USB cable, and software for computer. Freq. Range 20Hz - 8kHz Freq. Weighting A/C Fast/Slow Time Weighting Data Logging with Clock USB Mini Interface Includes Software and USB Cable for Charging IEC 61672-1 Type II Range 30 - 130dB Accuracy ± 1.4dB Electronic Calibration

Cricket

CPTS Cricket

The CRICKET Polarity/Continuity tester is great for sound contractors, musicians, DJs, and many others. Polarity, should it become reversed, can play havoc with a sound system. If two sources are emitting the same electrical or acoustic tone (frequency), and one of those sources is in a state of inverted polarity, those tones, when combined at a given point, will cancel each other. This severely alters the sound of a system. Polarity can be reversed while soldering cables, adding components to a sound system, reversing 'Banana' plugs, or replacing a component in a speaker cabinet improperly, to name a few instances. The purpose of the CRICKET is to test the polarity of a sound system each time it is used to insure it is working properly. Galaxy Audio's battery powered CRICKET Polarity/Continuity Test Set makes it easy to determine whether every component in an audio system from patch bay to console to speakers is in or out of polarity. The CRICKET tests balanced and unbalanced cables of up to 2,000 feet in length. It will drive a “snake” (even one with transformers), and indicate which of a microphone's XLR connector pins is hot. The CRICKET can also plug directly into a speaker cabinet and drive the components. A glance at the CRICKET's red and green LED's can save hours of troubleshooting. No wonder it's an indispensable tool for sound system owners, operators, installers, and sound rental companies. The CRICKET Polarity Tester is a two-piece unit ('Send' & 'Receive'). The Send unit generates a 'pulse', which is sent through the speaker, cable, microphone, or the device being tested. The Receive unit interprets that pulse and indicates if that pulse is positive or negative. The bottom of each unit has a quick reference guide on how to understand the readings given. The CRICKET Polarity Test Set is easy to use, necessary to own, and not a lot of money. The CRICKET is suggested for anybody working with sound systems. Checks continuity and polarity 1/4" TRS and XLR in/out  Tests speakers, mics, cables and wireless systems Tests mixers and signal processors for polarity inversions Internal speaker for testing mic polarity Internal mic for testing speakers High level output for testing miles of cable Battery test on Receive module saves troubleshooting time "The Galaxy Audio Cricket is a life saver- allowing simple or very complex systems to be checked for phase all along the signal path. The Cricket has been it my toolkit for over 20 years and during that time has checked and helped me phase multiple amplifier stacks for Megadeth, White Zombie, Stephen Stills, Bon Jovi, E Street Band, Paul Simon and The Who. We have also used it to solve the "mysteries"of rental equipment and house PA's sometimes finding simple cabling faults which had remained undiscovered for years. When all your "stuff" works together, it works it's best." - Michael Kaye, Touring Guitar Technician

JIB/PA50

The JIB/PA50 is designed to meet the demands of the school, commercial, industrial, and pro audio installations. Its compact and lightweight form allow for a wide range of applications that need noiseless amplification. The JIB/PA50 has a 50 Watt (2x25W) Energy-Star rated Class D amplifier in only a quarter rack width design. This design allows for the amplifier to be placed where conventional amplifiers cannot be.   The three stereo inputs, microphone input, and separate line and mic gain adjustments allow for connecting the JIB/PA50 to a projector, wireless microphone receivers, and other sound sources quickly. The Energy-Star amplifier automatically goes into standby mode if no input signal is sensed for 20 minutes, dropping power consumption to only 0.8W, saving energy and money, while extending the JIB/PA50 life span.   Great for classrooms, boardrooms, conference rooms, and small systems Output 50 watt (25 watts RMS per channel) Three stereo inputs, two on RCA connectors and one on 3.5mm stereo jack Balanced sub-line level input summed to both channels Stereo input can be controlled externally with 10K pot Energy-efficient amplifier

JIB/MM

+24V Phantom Power 7 Input/4 Channel Headphone Output with Volume Multiple Outputs Metal Construction Portable - Runs off of 2 AA Batteries* High Gain/Wide Dynamic Range The Multi Mixer (JIB/MM) is a great tool for live sound, home recording, field recording, audio/video, and many others. This unit features 4 inputs; Chan 1&2: XLR/1/4" combo w/ 20dB pad, Chan 3: Stereo RCA and Stereo 1/8" mini (3.5mm), Chan 4: Stereo RCA. Each channel has its own volume control.  The JIB/MM also features numerous outputs; XLR, 1/4", stereo RCA, and a stereo headphone output with a volume control. The “Mic/Line switch” located between the XLR and 1/4" Balanced Mono Outputs allows for selecting either a “Mic Level” Balanced Mono Output or a “Line Level” Balanced Mono Output.  The JIB/MM will run off of 2 AA batteries for about 15 hours or an optional DC power supply (JIB/UA4.5-14). The JIB/MM will supply +24V phantom power to microphones.  The JIB/MM is great for:  Adding inputs to an existing mixer by creating a sub-mix of two or more sources before sending the signals to the main mixer or powered speaker.  Serving as a sophisticated cable adapter that not only adapts the connector type but also provides the correct impedance with adjustable level control.  Serving as the main mixer for solo or duo acts as well as AV presentations.  As a mixer for rehearsals when its impractical to set up the entire PA.  Interfacing pro audio gear with consumer audio gear.  Battery operation allows remote location use where AC power is unavailable.  As an emergency back-up mixer to have along just in case.  Great for Use in Churches, Schools, and Bands.

Life Saver Sand/Water Bag LSR38

The Galaxy Audio Life Saver is a unique equipment stand stabilizer that may be used in a variety of ways in Audio, Video, Lighting, and Theatre applications. Any mic or speaker stand may become unstable because of a top-heavy center of gravity, a boom extended laterally, or simply because the stand is set on an uneven surface. When filled with Sand or Water the Life Saver provides enough weight at the bottom to stabilize most mic and speaker stand applications. The doughnut shape of the LSR38 ensures that the Life Saver will stay on the base of the stand, even if the stand is pushed or bumped. The LSR38 weighs 38 lbs. when filled with sand, and 22 lbs. when filled with water.
