Question about Behringer Pmp3000 16 Channel Audio Mixer
Absolute maximum is two of these per side. The speakers are 8 ohm and two on each of the outputs would be 4 ohms which is the minimum allowed for the amplifier. You will get about 400 Watts RMS per side doing this. Please note that the stated 1200 watts for the amp is the PEAK (fakey) values put forth in all the ads we get now. With 4 total B212XL's you should be able to fill an indoor venue of about 10000 square feet with sound at the OSHA limit.

The speakers would receive about 250 watts max each from the PMP3000 since they are 8 ohms.
That is quite a bit and should fill a 1000 square foot venue with plenty of sound. The type of program material will affect what sound level you can get to. I would recommend you procure a sound meter and measure the sound level. You should be able to get 90 to 95 DB out of these easily. I use a PMP 3000 with two Peavey 15 inch with horn cabinets and can get 98 DB in a 30 by 40 foot room easily. You need to respect the OSHA sound level limits and a sound meter will help you comply. The 12 inch speakers would probably be too small if you are running a lot of bass through them. Please read my tip on Fixya regarding a hazard of the PMP mixers. Essentially, when using 1/4 inch adapters or plugs from the speakon connections of the PMP's, channel A sleeve or barrel is the hot whereas the tip of channel B is the hot. This is not documented in the user manual and if you inadvertenly ground the sleeve of channel A you will likely blow the amp.

The unit should drive 400 Watts RMS into a 4 ohm load per side.
The amount of sound power you get will VASTLY depend on speaker efficiency. You would likely use at least 15 inch speakers with the unit.

The passive speakers connect to the main outputs using Speakon connectors on the back.
You will use Balanced connections (TRS) to the main L and R connections on top to the active speakers. Daisy chain 3 active on each of the L and R top connectors.
You can download a user manual if you don't have one.
ALSO PLEASE read my tip regarding a hazard when using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables on channel "A" in the FIXYA tips for PMP mixers. The barrel of the channel A 1/4 inch is the HOT side of the signal to the speaker instead of the tip.

No preference, just use mode that fits your venue. As far as system safety I would run in Stereo A/B rather than bridged mode.
Now please read my tip about PMP units on Fixya regarding a hazard if you convert the Speakon outputs at some point to 1/4 inch plugs. If you do this, please note that the SLEEVE, not the tip on channel A is HOT to ground and shorting this to ground will often fry channel A. Channel "B" the tip is the hot speaker lead. Thsi is done by Behringer to facilitate switching to bridged mode.

The answer is "Not Much"... they upped the rating for power out and added 1000 to the model number... I don't know of any circuitry difference between them... it would probably be minor. Functionality is the same.
