You would need a 2 or 3 way crossover, depending on whether or not you biamp your tops. Simply go out of your main outs on the mixer into the input of the crossover. Go from the low output of your crossover to your low power amp input (subs), and the high output of the crossover to the high power amp input (tops). Then go from your outputs of your amps into the speakers themselves.

Peavey XR 1212 You may find helpful info from the Peavey site. I'm not sure how you want to configure your setup, but the tape out may be able to feed the power amp.

Run an active subwoofer with a Xenyx 2442fx


Probably the easiest way is to run a balanced 1/4" TRS to XLR Male Interconnect Cable from one of the AUX outputs from your 2442 board.
Here's a link to an example cable: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BPBQXM20/

Good luck! :)

I purchased a PV12M monitor and was wanting help connecting it to my Behringer xenyx 2442fx mixer


You will have to have an amplifeir between them since the PV12M is an unpowered speaker. The Xenyx 2442FX is likewise an unpowered mixer meaning it cannot directely drive a speaker. You will wire with a balanced line (TRS cable) between the 2442 and the amp and then from the amp to the speaker using a speaker type cable.

Can i connect the pv 112 to the pv 118 subwoofer since the powered mixer i bought it only has 2 main outputs? The powered mixer I bought is the PV XR 8600D powered mixer...


Generally speaking you should only send low frequencies to subs. The highs, while lower in power than the lows, will over time harm the voice coils. The ideal way to do this is to use an external crossover netween the main output and the amp input with the higher range going to a general set of speakers. Send the lows through the second channel of the amp and then to the subs.

In short, while not recommended, yes you can hook them up in parallel.

I want to use both speaker outputs for loudspeakers on my Peavey 8600 without splitting the watts. How do I hook up monitor speakers in this situation? Can another mixer be patched into the front? I have...


Sorry, but this unit does NOT support "bridged" mode. You will have to drive seperate speakers from the two seperate outputs. You would NOT get any more power if you could do bridged mode than you could with 4 ohm speakers on each of the two output channels.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

Shure sm58 mic does not have full power


You should consider a microphone with more power to get the volume you need. I can personally recommend the CAD C195 Cardoid Condensor microphone. It has great output. The only downsidefor most people is that they don't have phantom power. This is what gives the mic its boost. In order to get the most out of any micrphone, you need to have a preamp, an equilizer, and an output. The output is your PA system that drumbanger mentioned. 

But since you are using a Peavey, here is my strong recommendation. Get a mini preamp, and hook it up to your Peavey. You can use a Behringer 2mic mixing board for your preamp. It's small, and it can sit right on top of the Peavey.

CAD C195
http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/CAD-C195-Cardioid-Electret-Condenser-Microphone?sku=270775

The reason why I suggest the two-mic XENYX 802 and not the 1 channel 502, is that the 1 channel doesn't have phantom power.

In order to connect the XENYX to your Peavey, this is all you need. You can get one at radio shack for pretty cheap.
