Sound only coming...
Topic: Sound only coming out of headphones no sound coming out of speakers
I have set it to master: mixtrack pro 3 chan 1 and 2 and headphones: mixtrack pro 3 chan 3 and 4 and have also set my speakers to quadraphonic and they are connected from an RCA cable from the controller to the speakers. The aux is in my laptop and headphones in the controller. But...I can only get sound from my headphones and nothing in the speakers. Any help?

Apart from not getting sound from the Mixtrack, have you tried getting sound from your laptop (use the 3.5mm mini jack of your main sub connected to the audio Output jack of your computer) and see if speakers work actually ?
Can you post a screenshot of your Audio Setup of VirtualDJ ?
also try to set your computer's built in sound card as default audio device for Max OSX instead of the Mixtrack (which probably has been auto-selected) from Audio Midi Setup (Utilities)

That's wrong! Did you not bother reading the manual for the speakers?
Have you never used a speaker system like that before? The large cab is the bass speaker, and also contains the amplifier. The 'output' sockets on the back will therefore be the amplified outputs to connect the small left & right speakers. CONNECTING THOSE TO YOUR LAPTOP COULD DAMAGE IT!
Read the manual for the speakers. Don't guess - you could break something!

Besides, if you're sending audio from the computer to the speakers, you do not need to send it back to the computer again! The speakers are the output.

here is the screenshot ^
The speakers work with the controller but not in correspondence with the headphones. Either the music plays with the headphones and not speakers or vice versa but i cant get one deck on the headphones and other playing through speaker. Yes i need to have a play around with the audio midi setup and work out the soundcard thing

- The audio settings in VDJ are correct;
- The Master Output of the Mixtrack is connected to the Input Left and Right on back of your speakers, and your headphone the front Headphone Output connector. This is also correct, and nothing else is needed.
Now, moving the Crossfader between left and right should give you a balance of the two songs on your speakers (Output 1/2). Don't forget to also set the Master Gain on the Mixtrack to an appropriate level (and obviously the volume control of your speakers).
As for headphone, press the CUE/ PFL button for the specific deck you want to hear. Also keep an eye on the Cue Mix knob on the Mixtrack to decide what exactly you want to hear in your headphone:
- When in the CUE position (far Left), you will hear the deck for which the CUE/ PFL has been activated
- When in the MIX position (far Right), you will hear what comes out of Output 1-2, according to the Crossfader position.
- If you want to hear a bit of both (when preparing a track for example), simply put down the middle position.
