You always keep your sound in line. what i mean by this is if your powerpod is a PA then you would want to run your instrument-pedals-amp-PA. Not saying this is the only way but it is the standard way to configure your components.

This mixer has a multi-effects processor onboard, but the key is understanding the audio signal chain. There is a chance that you have your input audio going through an undesired effect, but without knowing your setup (input source, connections, mixer settings), it would be difficult to pinpoint the problem.

SOURCE: I have speakers plugged into

Hi,
Yes it's possible. I'm assuming you'd like to use the keyboard amp as a "monitor". In which case, take a 1/4inch TS (instrument cable) jack out of "Aux Send" into the input of your keyboard amp. Make sure the keyboard amp is turned up to a good level and that the Master SEND is turned up on the Desk.
Now you can make your own "monitor mix" for on stage use without effecting the F.O.H mix by turning up the aux pot (knob) on each channel you use.

You can use the CTRL ROOM output also, but make sure it's not giving a "Powered Output" from the internal amplifier in the mixer as you will damage the keyboard amp.

SOURCE: Mixer does not sound "clean"; almost distorted

If more than one input is bad, then problem has NOTHING to do with the preamps. Check list:
1. Make sure you are using BALANCED lines everywhere... either XLR or TRS cables.

2. Make sure ALL interconnected equipment, mixers, amps, powered speakers, CD players, etc. are ALL powered from the SAME receptacle or power distribution unit.

3. Do proper setup. Select each channel PFL and set the trims so the indicator never goes into clipping, but is in the 70% range during max volume input to mics, etc..

4. During operation the sliders should be at least 50% up on used channels and the mains. Setting of levels throughout the system is important for noise free operation. Using EXCESS gain at some point results in distortion and noise. Using sliders near the bottom position results in poor signal to noise ratio.

Now re-read #2 above... and believe it. I have seen a lot of equipment blown due to ground bounce of building power. That is why the pro's run power back to their mixer from the area where the amps are powered.

Which inputs are you using? If you are using the 2T RTN, you will need to engage the 2T RTN button under CONTROL ROOM SOURCE and engage ASSIGN TO MAIN.

My band plugs into the input channels on the SX2442FX mixer, which we then hook up to the PMP2000 to use as a PA. Since the SX2442FX is not a "Powered" Mixer, I figured that we should be going...


Either way will work, however your friend's method probably would be slightly better since it goes through less stages within the PMP2000. The "left and right power amp inputs" are the INPUTS to the power amp in the PMP2000 and hence are the best places to connect the mixer if using the PMP2000 as only a power amp. Note doing this will LIKELY disconnect any other input to the PMP2000 from the power amps in it... that is all the preamps in the PMP2000. DO USE TRS cables!!! and power both units from the same receptacle to avoid ground bounce.

I have the Phonic powerpod 820. I ordered a Kuston powered floor monitor to add too the system. I know not to hook it up too the speaker outputs on the back of the mixer. So where do I hook up the powered...


You will plug an UNBALANCED 1/4 inplug cable into the MONI jack on the front of the unit. The other end will probably need to be an XLR plug to connect to the Kustom POWERED monitor. Please note that the UNBALANCED output of the Phonic is NOT good engineering practice. The Phonic stuff is normally low-end and they don't do everything correctely, although for a small system it should work. IF you get excessive hum from using a long cable to the Kustom with a "Kludged" unbalanced to balanced cable, you MAY need to use a DI box at the Phonic end to convert the unbalanced Phonic MONI output to a balanced line (XLR to XLR) for a longer run to the Kustom monitor. You might get a 1/4 inch TS to XLR balanced plug that has a transformer in it and use an XLR to XLR cable to the Kustom. Please note that having this plug in the Phonic hangs out and is easily bent over so I would recommend using a right angle connector at the Phonic and plug the 1/4 inch TS to XLR adaoter into that so the yanking of the XLR cable won't break the 1/4 inch adapter off in the Phonic.

I dont know how to set up the sound board


What board are you having to use? What do you need to do? What equipment do you have with it? Amps/ F.O.H cabs, Monitors? Outboard? etc,etc. If you are unable to answer these questions you really should not go near it and get someone in.

Hi, i have the powerpod 820 and i turned it off abrubtly and now the audio wont go throught like on the right where the green lights are for the audio nothing is lighting up what could be the problem?


After seeing a LARGE number of the Phoniic things listed for sale as defective, I suspect the amp has a failure and requires repair in a shop unless you are adept at electronic repair. There probably is a design weakness in the unit to have the high failure rate.

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.
