Question about Behringer Pmp3000 16 Channel Audio Mixer

Using Behringer PMP3000 to power monitors??

We have a bi amp set up - X over, two power amps. We used to use a Peavey powered mixer were you could patch the monitor send to power amp in and use the Peavey to power the monitors.
I thought that this would be possible on the PMP3000 ie mon send to pwer amp insert, but it doesn't seem to work.

Can any one help??

Cheers

    Hi, can you clarify your problem a little for me.
    1. Your bi-amp setup, what are you bi-amping mains or monitors?
    2. What are you using the two amps in the PMP3000 for?
    3. Are you still using the Peavey head too?

    I'm sure I can help with this but I'm not understanding what your using to power what.

The power amp INSERT's are NOT intended to be used as inputs for the power amp but are for external effects units. The TIP of the jack plugged in here receives the signal from the preamp section and the inout of the power amp is taken from the RING of this threee conductor jack. If you want to use one of the power amps to run monitor speakers with no less than 4 ohms combine, you can use the built in Mon mode without any additional cables. You will set the mono/mon positon (center) and use the mo1 slider to control the output from the amp side for the mon speakers. The other amp then is used for the main speakers.

What amp setting do you use when you have two passive monitors 1 ea on amp 1 and 1 ea on amp 2?


You have two monitor outputs, each controlled by a fader. Plug the amp(s) you will be using to power the monitors into these, connect the monitor speakers to the amp(s) and you're set up and ready

Where do you have the gain control set on the Mic channel ?
If you have no issues with either the speakers or the Mic, and the gain control for the channel you have the Mic plugged into is set at a somewhat "normal" position, you might have a problem with the mixer itself.

HOW DO I HOOK UP PASSIVE MONITORS TO BEHRINGER PMP4000


If you are using the amp in stereo mode, then you will require a separate amp for the monitors and the input of that amp are taken using BALANCED TRS cables from the monitor jacks. If you are using the amp as MONO and monitor, then connect NO MORE than two 8 ohm speakers to the Speakon plug on the back labeled for use as monitor. Refer to your user manual... they have detailed photos of the connections. If you lost your manual, you can download another from the Behringer site. There are settings you need to do to configure the unit after connecting your speakers. The small slide switch has to be set to the center position for Main/Mon. Make sure it is centered as many people have had it slightlyu off and the system will NOT pass audio. You need to set each channel "monitor 1" level control to send the monitor signal to the MONITOR mixing bus. You will then use the MONITOR 1 slider to control the amount sent to the monitor. Be VERY careful of grounding the sleeve of 1/4 inch jacks that originate at the Speakon power amp outputs as the SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT side and you can blow the power amp for the channel... it is EXPENSIVE to repair.

Try plugging in a set of headphones into each of the mon left and right. If the monitor sliders are up AND the channel monitor knobs are up you should be able to hear in ONE SIDE only of the headphones. If not, then you may have failed to power your monitor amp or speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer and this can result in ground bouncein building wiring that will blow out the driver chips for the mon signals.

I want to know how to send the signal from a Europower pmp 3000 to two external amps


Plug a balanced TRS (tip ring sleeve) cable into either main or monitor 1/4 inch jacks and then into the amp. ALWAYS use balanced lines AND power the mixer AND the amps from the SAME receptacle to avoid damage from ground loop bounce,

Can i hook up a seperate power amp . to the pmp 6000 powerd mixer . for more over all power.


You can add extra amps driving ADDITIONAL speakers... you CANNOT parallel amps driving the same speakers.

Drive these seperate amps from the MAINS OUT connnectors using TRS and balanced lines to those external amps.

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.

I Have a behringer pmp3000 16 channel mixer amp. the problem i have is that one side is weaker than the other considerably. using the desk in stereo mode. tried and checked leads and speakers but alas it...


As a test, plug ONLY into the RCA stereo inputs and test for equality. Have no other connections when testing other than the speakers. Make sure the Speakon cables for the speakers connect correctely and that the

This unit has some TRS inputs and one must use cables designed for that. Often a person may plug a mono into a TRS inout and the barell of the mono grounds out the ring of a TRS connector. Make sure the slide switch is clear up to Main L and Main R position.

The amps in these units are "class D" which are like the Peavey DECA amps, that is are switching type with filter. They are very efficient pwer wise. They usually are all there or totally dead, not just weak.

Make sure you do not go below the load resistance they specify. (Usually 4 ohms)

The power supply is a switching regulator and has lethal voltage present so use caution if you open the unit. They are hard to work on and Behringer doesn't supply schematics. I had to trace out the circuitry in a PMP5000 I repaired.

You want the mon1/mono setting. The center position of the slide switch to use each half of the power amp seperately. Then fiddle with the controls BOTH in the strips and the faders to get desired result.
