SOURCE: Can I hook up 2 separate power amps to PMP3000? I

Better way... Connect the main speakers via the Speakons and then put a Power Subwoofer to one of the Monitor connections IF you are not using both stage monitors. If you need to kill the lows to the mains, use the EQ in the PMP-3000.

Use the EQ that is USUALLY on the subwoofer to kill the highs to the sub.

Lot less cables and hardware.

REMEMBER for equipment safety, power ALL interconnected equipment from the same source be it a receptacle or power distribution system.

Powering parts of a system from receptacles strewn around a room is asking for trouble of ground loops and ground faults.

SOURCE: My Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer blew

Probably the channel A went. If you are fortunate, the power supply is still OK. There are protection circuits for the speakers, however you MUST use speakers that are rated at over 400 Watts. If you use smaller ones, they can get blown. There is a weakness primarily on insulation for channel A and an arc between layers of a circuit board can wipe out several transistors and a zener diode and sometimes a metering resistor. Once this happens, have unit serviced before using it again as further damage can result.
ALSO PLEASE read my tip I posted on FIXYA regarding a grounding hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... essentially the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack of the A channel is the hot lead, NOT the tip for that channel.

SOURCE: how to connect mixer to a crown power base 2 amp

just use the main left and right outputs of the behringer to run xlr (3 prong balanced) to 1/4 inch (looks like a big headphone plug) cables into the inputs of the crown amp. the mixer has the xlr outputs and the amp has 1/4 inch inputrs, sop the cables will have to reflect that on both ends. run the outputs of the amp (rca outputs, i believe, you may have to get a rca plug to 1/4 inch jack adapter, and then use a 1/4 inch speaker cable) to the inputs of the speakers, again, the amp has rca outputs and the speakers will likely have 1/4 inputs, so you will have to address that wil an adapter. have each speaker in its own channel.

SOURCE: where do you connect wires from mixer to stage

Judging from your mixer, I would connect your stage monitors to your SUB outs. Your mixer has 4 of them, allowing you to make 4 separate mixes to 4 monitors.

Oh my... the EMX512SC does NOT have any "sub busses" there fore there is no way to just hear YOUR vocals where there are other vocal present. The way to connect this is to run YOUR mic into the B205D and then run the line output that is intended to run to other B205D's from the B205D into a channel of the EMX512SC.

I have a Kustom KPM8420 PA mixer and the monitor channel comes through both the monitor and main speakers and vice versa. The two channels are not separate.How do I fix that?


On the back panel there is a section labelled Patch Bay
There are 2 small switches which assign each Power Amp to either Monitor or Main Output.
It would seem you have them both set the same at present. Set one to Monitor and one to Main, and use the corresponding Power Amp outputs direct to speakers.

Note you can send signal to external amps or powered speakers from the preamp outputs. This is really handy.
Download and print the manual from https://www.manualslib.com/manual/90516/Kustom-Kpm-8420t.html
and keep it with the mixer.

( Of course don't send speaker outputs to other amps or powered speakers )

How do I plug mixer into pa speakers, monitors, instruments


Without knowing what make and model of the gear you're looking to connect, I can't give you a definitive answer. However, in general, if you have a powered PA mixer, meaning it has both a mixer section and a power amp section in a single box, the main speaker outputs will be on the rear panel of the box and marked as such. There will also be a jack for monitors, but some mixers have an amp for monitors, some just have an output for the monitor mix, but not an amp for them, and on some you can switch the main outputs to feed either a Left and a Right speaker, or a front mono speaker and a montior speaker. Instruments will go into the individual channel inputs.

Soundcraft efx 12


Good luck. Your mixer only has one aux out to supply only one stage monitor out. Only way to make it work would be to use the panning controls of each channel to different outputs to the Left and Right main outs for stage monitors and aux out as front of house speakers. I would get another separate mixer for monitor such as another efx 12 with every input connected to both mixers, then use the panning and main outputs to that. Sorry. Just not enough of mixer. You need an aux out for each individual's monitor.

Hi i have an Allen and Heath ZED 22 with no onboard effects. I would like to use an external Behringher unit but am having difficulty in connecting the processed signal back to the mixer. i would like to...


Send audio from board via the "Aux1 Out" to the input of the effects unit. Now connect the output of the effects unit to "ST1" and control the amount of effects to each channel via each channels "Aux1" control. Adjust the Aux1 controls in the output stage (controls on the right side) for proper levels.

Older boards called this connection "effects send" for the output to the effect, and "effects return" for the effects out back to the board. The better choice was to use "effects send" into the effect but connect the effects output to an unused channel on the board. Using this scenario allowed EQ adjustments to be made before mixing it out to the amps and speakers.

Shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.


An external equalizer will not help this at all. The problem is likely within the amp (feeding the main speakers), the connections from the board to the amp, or the speakers themselves. In other words, the answer would be "NO." Best of luck!

How to wire up outboard effects, poweramps to mixer. Out to sub, mains, monitors each with own poweramp, and several outboard effects, eq's, comp/lim/gate, sonic maximizer, quadraverb, crossover.


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.
Don't feed amp outputs into powered speakers

How can i get more volume on my onstage monitors thru my mackie 2404 vlz3 mixer or what is the proper way to connect the monitors


Without more information of your speakers and amps we can't really help you. The Mackie board puts out line-level signals and that should drive any connected amp or powered speaker to the full capability. Make sure you are using BALANCED interconnect lines either XLR or TRS cables. Use of TS unbalanced cables costs you 6 DB and also noise pickup. Make sure ALL your gear, amps, speakers etc are powered from a SINGLE receptacle or power conditioning module. Normally you will use the AUX outputs of the mixer by way of TRS cables or balanced lines in a snake to power amplifiers onstage which then connect to the stage monitors. If you have powered monitors the returns of the aux to the stage go to the powered monitors. A heavy duty extension cord brings power back from thee stage power to the mixer.

The speaker connected to my Yamaha EMX 312 SC is not bringing out any sound when we use the microphones but the displays on the power mix shows there is activity.


Assuming that you have checked the speaker leads for broken connections and that you know the speakers themselves work okay (test with a different amp) and that you can hear sound on the headphone socket
  1. Check that you actually have the power amp switch in the right position for the outputs (monitor jacks or main neutrik/speakon sockets) that you are using (see page 25 of the manual)
  2. That your speakers are connected to the speaker outlets on the rear panel and not the 'main outputs' on the front panel, which are for use with a separate power amplifier
  3. Check the mute button is not in
  4. You have turned both the master volume controls up.
If none of the above solves the problem it is likely that the overload protection fuses on the amplifier output stage have blown and need replacing - take to a repairer

Bought a powered monitor as it said to do even though I thought it was weird as you usually use a passive monitor with a power amp. Purchased Kustom 10" powered monitor, hooked it up to monitor...


You didn't mention what brand powered mixer you have, HOWEVER MOST powered mixers also have a line level monitor and main output jacks. These are almost always 1/4 inch jacks. In any case you should be using BALANCED lines to the powered speakers using either XLR or TRS connectors on the ends. Please tell us what powered mixer you have so we can give you better answer regarding which connections to use. IF for some reason your mixer does NOT have line level outputs, you can use a high level Direct Box to condition the powered outputs to be sent to the powered speakers..
Also make sure ALL your interconnected equipment is powered by the same receptacle or source to avoid damaging due to ground bounce on utility lines and circuits. This often means running an extension cord from the stage where the powered speakers are along with a snake of the audio cables.
