    Hi the main fuse for the MPM5000 is no blown.Possible it could have been in the past.
    Do I understand the the board will not accept dynamic microphones like the Shure SM-58? And will only accept condenser microphones ?
    Thanks GL

  • glorance Jan 12, 2009

    No, I am using Shure SM 58. Microphones .I have used the same microphone and cord.on the Allen-Heath board as a test and they work great.I used my Morley test box to and sent a-50 Mic.test tone to the PMP5000. and do not get any output untill trim is just about all the way up if I back it off the lest little bid the channel goes dead. Microphone gain is marked +10 to +60db so I should be able to get a 0 db at the pfl indicator lamps ?I may be totally mixed up but this is the first time in 15 years of running Pro Sound that I can not get a board to work ,but I must say this is my first experence with Bahringer.
    Thanks
    Gl

It actually sounds like the power supply lines that run the input op amps ( related to the level controls) are not where they should be.
If say, you lost the +12 V on a +/- 12 V op amp, Almost no sound would be processed. Or if the supplies were at +/- 8 volts instead of 12..big problem there too.

To a point this is normal. The microphone puts out what is called mic-level which is then amplified defore exiting the mixer. The 1/4" inputs are expecting line-level (similar to the output of a pre-amp). You should expect that the input trimmers be set higher when using mics. You should be able to see the output on the LEDs though. Does the output from the mics seem clear and loud enough? There may be a problem with the inserts or something else that may be the cause of this symptom. There could be a fault or the unit may not be set up correctly for your input type.

Please update this with as many details as possible. Also update me on the quality of the output when using the mics.

Thanks,
Dan

    This mixer will accept both types of mics. Please indicate whether or not the sound quality is OK. You should be able to use both line level inputs and microphones. Yes condenser mics will provide a higher level than non-condenser types. These condenser mics will also require phantom power. You have not blown a fuse or the unit would not be wokring at all. Please update this with the requested info and we'll get this resolved.



    Thanks,

It's normal.....
I also had the problem with blowing the fuses on this one. Furthermore for people who aren't really technically knowledgable you might be tempted to plug a dynamic microphone directly into the back of this unit since it has an XLR plug. This seemed like a reasonable thing to do at the time but I suspect this may have been responsible for blowing the fuse on this unit. When I talked to a customer service representative he said I should have known it was not rated for this... I read the damn manual and it didn't say that...


thanks.

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

Fm works, am does not


Check the antenna connection. A poor connection will often be good enough for FM but make AM reception so bad the the radios auto-gain circuits will mute the output unlike old AMs that would just produce loud static in poor signal conditions.

Can't switch to the auxiliary


try useing it.. plug your aux cord into whatever your using (mp3 player) as maybe your radio won't switch to aux until it senses that there is audio being played through the input aux cord?
