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.

SOURCE: not enough sound, im using a pmp 3000 with rhino

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.

SOURCE: my behringer pmp 3000 has litle power i thing is

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.

SOURCE: i want to connect two passive b212 and 6 active

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.

SOURCE: I have a pmp 3000 and a pmp 6000. what is the best

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.

I have a behringer PMP 3000 mixer, on e of the channel is gone, it is not under warranty, can you tell me who can repair it ? what causes the channel to blow.


Often the A channel power output blows. CEASE using the unit immediately until repaired as continued use can have additional damage to power supply.

Any problem with speakers can blow the channel as there is real weak insulation on a multi-layer circuit board in the rear most amp (channel A). It burns and takes out three transistors on the HCA2400 module inside.

ALSO read my tip on here regarding a hazard of Behringer PMP units due to the channel A connection when using Speakon to 1/4 inch plugs or adapters having the BARREL being the hot lead instead of the TIP of the 1/4 inch plug. Short that barrel to ANY ground and goodbye channel A.

Hello...last night at a show, i plugged up my syst...


Hi, first get a battery and a wire to comfirm if the speakers are still working.
If the speakers work that means one of your connecting cables is bad and it needs to be replaced.

You can just do a general troubleshooting of all the cable for connecting.

Good luck.

Fuse and fuse holder needed for Behringer 3000 pmp mixer


Try this Behringer support:

BEHRINGER USA, Inc.
18912 North Creek Parkway, Suite 200
Bothell, WA 98011
Tel.: +1 425 672 0816
Fax: +1 425 673 7647

I just repaired a PMP3000.

A bit of warning on these. Do not let a speaker leads get pulled while powered. They can arc out the power amp causing extensive damage.

If the fuse ever blows do NOT replace the fuse as much more damage will result. Service the unit before using.

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.
