    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.

How do you wire it in? Orion 300 prq equalizer


the prq can be used after a head unit before crossover and amps. it is a preamp/equilizer and you must have an orion amp in the signal chain that uses the 5 pin din plug to provide power to the prq via phantom power. if you have a crossover it must be a brand with the same 5 pin din pinout input and output. the din pinout is 1\+15v, 4\r. ch input, 2\ground, 5\l. ch input, 3\-15v. left to right or clockwise on din. the power can be supplied to the prq with an optional 100 pps power supply unit. rca from head unit feed the input and the 5 pin din is the output .

Peavey 3/4/5w crossover and Peavey Compressor CEL-2A


While not familiar with this unit I beleive you are right assuming that
you need to be working with a line level signal(post preamp) not a mic
level signal
there are several ways to do this
I also do not know your board or how convoluted a layout you are willing
to go through
Most boards that people who use compressors own(for live pa) have post
preamp "insert"points
failing that you can put your mic on channel 1 and send its signal to
the comp via the aux buss(not raising the channel one fader, but instead
send the signal out the aux to the compressor, then take the out of the
compressor into channel two(which you will not send any aux singal
from) and use the channel 2 fader as your mix level
or you could route the mic to a outboard preamp then compressor then
mixer input

if you hav e subgroups the mic channel could send out a subgroup to the
comp
the only thing you do not want to do(for live pa) is place the comp
after the main mix out

Another conundrum


To check for yourself, get an Ohmmeter and see if the outers of the amplifiers RCAs are connected to the ground or each other. If so then it cannot take speaker signals directly.
I suspect the 'High Level' the manual speaks of are the 4volt auxilliary audio signals that can be found on some newer head units, not speaker signals.
Speaker level signals from a bridge amp CAN be used on grounded RCA inputs if the signal is first passed through a simple decoupler and attenuator.

Do you plug the sub woofer outputs to another amp?


Yes, for best results. Your subwoofer should have a seperate amplifier because it has low pass filter that produces low frequency signals. It is done by connecting the sub woofer output to the input signal of the amplifier and then connecting the output signal to the subwoofer speaker terminals. Hope this helps.

Page 7 of the manual gives you all the different configurations of this amp, and it's MAX power. FYI; Kenwood rates their amps at MAX power, not clean. Hope this helps.

Can't get sound to speakers


No preamp required. I just repaired one I got from Ebay.. There are a lot of buttons on the unit and you need to have several of them set correctely to get output. This is a powerful amp and you can blow speakers easily so be careful. Make sure the standby switch is up. Most important: The slide switch should be clear UPWARD to the L/R speaker position.
The white trim control(s) need to be up to match the input source levels. Advance the faders for the cahnnel(s) being used. Advance the MAIN to control overall volume. That should get you started.
MAKE SURE your source is plugged into the CORRECT input jack as there are "inserts" and you will get not output or very weak output if you are in the wrong jacks.

LA-1030 Protect Mode


you have an unloaded channel,so the voltage is exceeding what the protect circuit is supposed to see.you have to connect an 8 ohm resistor across the output of the unused channel.
do not drive a signal into it or you will smoke the resistor.
a 10 watt will do ok with zero signal input

I cannot find the specs or user manual on the JVC archived items list. A few sites want to charge $10.00 for the user guide info, but I think that is too much to charge.
