I am available as a sound system designer.  Your request is a bit simple.  Given the complexity of the situation there are way too many factors involved to give a simple one or two paragraph solution.    Installing a sound system involves several areas of expertise.    1. Acoustic analysis of the venue. 2. Analysis of the electrical system. 3. Budget! 4. Procurement. 5. Rigging 6. Operation and maintenance protocols.      Fixya is an advise site for do it yourself solutions.  If you want advise. My advise is to find a consultant, pay them to give you a sound system design, buy the equipment new or second hand. Hire a competent sound engineer, carpenter, rigger, licensed electrician who can build and install your PA in your venue.  Best of Luck!

How to set up a pmp 2000


What you need will depend on what you are doing with it (what sort of venues and how you are making music - what sort of band/solo with backing track etc.) You will need a monitor with an amp or a powered monitor. The key thing is that you'll be able to hear the monitor mix over the rest of the PA. If you are just putting vocals through it you would possibly be best with a 12" but otherwise go for a full range unit with 15" and horn. Power wise I would suggest you need something capable of generating at LEAST 125dB unless you are in a quiet acoustic set. The SPL from the monitor is much more important than the power since power has little bearing on SPL.

When we are trying to get a reasonable level of sound for vocals before it gets loud enough to be able to hear clearly with the band playing it starts to clip at the speakers now we are only using this set...


Proper level setting of the mixer is important. HOWEVER if the clipping is occuring at the speakers the only possible problem MIGHT be that you have a supersonic feedback that is saturating the speakers above your hearing range, Be sure you don't boost the highs too much with the EQ as this can cause the feedback that you can't hear. Also make sure that you power the speakers from the SAME receptacle as the mixer, even if it means running an extension cord to bring power to the mixer. This is to avoid a low frequency hum and common mode distortion/damage. A low frequency hum could cause the clipping.
It would be a good idea to get a sound meter to check the sound level. You should be able to reach 85 Db from this system without clipping. If you need more than that, you MAY need more speakers if the band instruments are too loud. Also if the band has amps that get into the vocal microphones that adds to the clipping level... make sure the mics don't "hear" the band instruments. Make sure your speakers are toward the audience from the mics to avoid the supersonic feedback problem. If the vocalists can't hear themselves with that configuration you need to set up seperate stage monitors.

There are some pretty good videos on YouTube about proper mixer level setup.

What is the ideal speaker specification to match the 8 channel Phonic Powerpod 820. is it possible to play live gig using this set up ? what is the maximum possible set-up ?


to get the best from this mixer output wise, you need to use 4ohm speakers rated at 150watts each. The 200 wat rating is at 4ohms. You can use 8 ohm speakers, but they recomend speakers at 70watts.

Gig wise, you could do a small location that will cater for about 40 people, but that would be pushing your system to the max.

Maximum possible set up? well there is a way to work most scenarios you are given, but it is not best practice.

Ideally, you know what instruments and vocals you want to go through the system, a rough idea of the size of venues you wil play and then ask questions on a system to suit.

I have an older Pyle 10" PA speaker and somehow it's completely blow itself to smithereens ...after lending my PA to an away band for a local gig, the band however they claim they never used the...


You need to search for a service that can "recone" speakers... However, you might be better to just replace the speaker in the cabinet. A 10 inch speaker is not that expensive.

No vocal sound


It sounds like the guitar level input to the unit is too low.

NOTE: With this product you MUST use an amplified or electric guitar that has a preamp within it.

If you have a straight guitar that does not have an amp in it, buy a preamp to first run the guitar through.

Loading an MPC5000 with midi files


if the mpc has GM soundbank then this should be possible. You might be better off recording the audio from a suitable GM unit first of all before gigging with it, then you can make it sound the way you want and change the key to suit etc.

Hi, the speakers are unpowered, but that desk is also unpowered, so you need an amplifier in the circuit. This can either be in the desk, in the speaker, or a separate device, there are advantages to each.
