I just added a Temblor T8 to my Sceptre S8 monitors. While mixing, the T8 stays on. However while listening to music at low volumes it goes to sleep. What are some possible remedies? Could this be a gain staging issue? Nothing I adjust on the T8 itself seems to have an effect.

Update: Even with my audio interface volume at maximum the T8 still sleeps while listening to music.

Aaronrussell,

It sounds like you may need to take a look at page 7 Section 3.2 of the T8 Manual " Level Calibration ".

https://pae-web.presonusmusic.com/downloads/products/pdf/TemblorT8_OwnersManual_EN_08102014.pdf

By properly calibrating your T8 with your full range monitors, you should not experience this standby mode as you have described.

Power User Tip: Once you have matched the levels of your full-range monitors and T8, don’t use their volume controls to adjust the overall level; instead, use the volume on your audio device (computer, iPad, TV, etc.). This will ensure that your speaker levels remain matched.
