    I have the EUROPOWER PMP4000. I am trying to connect mains and monitors using the MON 1 / MONO setting to Behringer b1520 PRO main speakers using 2 conductor Speakon to Speakon (output B) and various monitors using 2 conductor speakon to 1/4" (output A). When I do this I get no sound out of the mains. I can reverse the cables running the Speakon to Speakon mains from output A and the monitors using Speakon to 1/4" in output B and everything works, but I have to adjust the mains using the monitor controls and the monitors with the channel sliders. What am I doing wrong?

SOURCE: behringer ep1500 versus behringer eurolive b215 X 2- pa speakers.

The Amplifier will have wierd, notched, circular speakon cable connectors on the back, two, one for main left and one for main right. Press the button in on your speakon cable connector and twist it and lock it into place on the amplifer for right and left attachments, then do the same to your speakers.

Hopefully this helps.

SOURCE: how to send at same time main mix and alt 3-4 outputs signals

The subwoofer MAY only have a single channel. If so, you would just use either 3 or 4 to the subwoofer.

Normally you would just tap off the main mix. The only reason I can see for using the alts is to have seperate sliders for level control.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Behringer pmp4000; not getting much

You would get about 200 Watts RMS per side using 8 ohm speakers. "Not much volume" is very relative. With the two 12 inch speakers you should be able to fill a 600 to 1000 sq ft room nocely.

Effects not working on Behringer PMP4000 monitor


Normally, on mixers, Effects do NOT go to Monitors.
What you have to do is
(check if there is a control for "EFF to MON" before)....
*Make a cable bridge from EFF OUT to any channel of your inputs.
*Now you can send the EFX to monitors as you would any signal.
Be mostly happy....

Behringer PMP powered mixer safety issue


This is applicable to the PMP powered mixers regarding an undocumented issue of polarity of speaker connections.

Failure of the "A" side of these units can happen if Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables are used and IF the barrel of the 1/4 inch plug becomes grounded. This can happen from careless handling or from intentionally trying to parallel another device from the output which results in a ground being placed on the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack on the "A" side of these mixers. The barrel of a 1/4 inch on the "A" side is the "hot" from the amp.

Upon analyzing the circuitry, these mixers internally invert the audio signal to the "A" side and then the speaker connections reverse the polarity again. Behringer does this to easily allow "bridged" operation of the amplifier.

This creates a hazard that can result in blowing the "A" side amp of these mixers.

If one ONLY uses Speakon connectors everywhere it is NOT a problem, but anytime 1/4 inch plugs are used in the speaker cable system, the hazard exists.

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.

Loud Speakers only have 1/4 inch inputs


Get the Speakons to 1/4" cables. If you're concerned about grounding, make sure the amp is turned off before plugging or unplugging the speakers.

HOW DO I CONNECT 2 SPEAKERS TO THE MIXER


Unpowered (passive) speakers connect to the Speakon connectors on the back of the unit. Powered speakers or amplified ones connect to the mains output L/R connectors (1/4 inch) near the upper edge of the panel.

Where (on-line) can we find download for advanced manual for Behringer PMP 4000 16 channel powered mixer? What we found on-line was the exact manual that came with the mixer.


There really ISN'T and "advanced" manual... Everything you need to know is in the user manual that comes with it... Service manual with schematics will not give you much you can use unless you are into electronics detail.

PLEASE read my tip about Behringer PMP mixers on here regarding a hazard if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables or adapters. Essentially, the sleeve, NOT the tip is the HOT lead for a speaker on channel A. Ground it inadvertently and goodbye channel A amp.

Be VERY careful of speaker leads with this amp as it is easy to pop a channel IF a speaker comes loose or shorts. Loop cables through the handlesto avoid cables being yanked out or breaking plugs.

I want to know where i can get a new fuse for my pmp 5000b-212XL powered mixer ?? and waht kind of fuse is it ?


If the fuse has blown DO NOT replace it without repairing the cause of the failure. You will likely do more damage to internal components. Take the unit for repair before applying power again. I have repaired many of these and first a failure occurs in one of the power amps... usually the A channel, then people replace a fuse that protected the power supply and that blows the power supply taking out another $30 of components and $200 labor. (they are hard to change) If the unit is under warranty, exercise your warranty immediately. There is a weak spot in the channel A power amp.

ALSO please read my tip on here about a hazard in PMP series powered mixers. It is in regard to using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... NOTE that the BARREL of a 1/4 inch speaker cable or adapter from the Speakon is the HOT side for channel A and if you ground it inadvertenly, goodbye channel A power amp!!!

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.
