No sound at all, or just to the "r" (rear / right?) speaker? Can you be a bit more specific? Will be glad to help.

SOURCE: we have a pmp6000 mixer hooked up to our ep 4000

MAKE SURE the cables you plug into 1/4 inch mains are TRS plugs, and not mono cables (TS). The main output 1/4 inch jacks are TRS balanced outputs and if you plug mono (TS) cables that shorts out the ring connector reducing the power by 6 Db. USE ONLY TRS balanced cables for interconnects !!!! Also read my tip on Fixya regarding PMP mixers. If you use 1/4 inch SPEAKER cables or adapters, if you short the SLEEVE of channel A output to ground you can pop the channel A amp. The TIP of channel B is the hot BUT the SLEEVE of channel A is the HOT. The ttip I posted explains why this is and it isn't mention in the Behringer documentation.

SOURCE: how do i hook up

You have to make a choice... you can tie two main speakers to the "B" channel and the two monitor speakers to the "A" channel.
The speaker configuration slide switch is set to MON1/MONO. The main slider controls the volume of the mains and the MON1 slider controls the level of the monitors in conjuction with the rotary MON1 knobs for each channel.
Each output should not be loaded heavier than 4 ohms. This would be a max of two 8 ohm speakers for each output.

SOURCE: Will a Behringer UB2442fx-PRO run

ALL the speakers will either have to be POWERED or have external amplifiers. The mixer has NO power amps capable of driving speakers. When connecting, make sure that the mixer is powered by the same receptacle as the speakers or amps. Used balanced line for interconnection.

SOURCE: I have a Behringer PMP6000 Board. It is connected

Since all your speakers are passive, indeed there is a problem like what you describe. This is because with the same amount of signal from the board's speakers outputs, the 2520 can't play the same amount of audio with the PASW18. I don't know what other equipment is available (if any) so let me give you some suggestions.
1. Connect in parallel the 2520s at one of the board's output and do the same with the PASW18 at the other channel output. Doing this you will be able to handle one channel (e.g. left) for the main speakers level and the other channel (right) for the sub speakers level. No stereo playback, so set all the inputs to mono.
2. Use another separate amplifier to drive the subs. You have to provide signal to the amp from any LINE LEVEL OUTPUT from the board (using mono is a very good idea since low frequencies have no stereo separation and in this case you could use a single channel amplifier for both subs, parallel connection)

If there is available more equipment post me back in details to give you guide lines.
In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed (connection diagram e.t.c.), don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards
Stelios

What is the actual watts per channel @ 8-ohms and 4-ohms on the Behringer PMP3000?


Those specs would be right - I have this same board but the amp was fried by a previous owner. I pulled the amp board out and tossed it and use the mixer now to drive an external amp. Great board. This amp is rated at 1200W "peak", bridged into an 8ohm load. That would equate to about 900W RMS bridged into 8ohm or 450 per side into 4ohm loads per side. You can't daisy chain all 4 speakers....impedance would be too low. You can run two of your 8ohm speakers per side - that results in a 4ohm load per side for the amp. That would give you amp delivery of 450W per side. Your speakers are rated to handle more than that so you're fine. For the record.....you could run one speaker per side no problem....just lower power output.

I have two B215 600 watts speakers. Smoke started to come out of one when it was in use. I continued to use the other one, and about an hour later, the bass on that quit working. Any help with...


Sorry, those speakers are rated at 250 Watts RMS continuous, NOT 600. The speakers are nominally 8 ohms. The PMP6000 will deliver about 250 watts RMS to an 8 ohm load so the speakers should be able to take this as long as you had one per side and NOT using bridged mode of the PMP6000. It is possible that you fried the amp, although the PMP amps have a speaker protection network that shorts the output should the amp hard over. It is strange that you could draw smoke with the setup. Hopefully you were not generating very low frequencies that were below what the speaker could handle OR that you did not crank up the bass with the EQ such that frequencies below the speakers rating were sent at high levels. Your speakers are rated for a low end at 55 HZ. You should have the eq cut the gain below that. The leftmost EQ (50 Hz) should NOT be higher than center... if you boost that one, you likely will be buying new speakers. If you need power below that, then you need to be using subwoofers. Hopefully you haven't damaged the PMP6000... I assume that was the amp you were using, although you haven't stated that. At this point, unless the stuff is under warranty, you nee to open the speakers and see what has blown... could be the woofers or the crossover network...Use an ohmmeter to check the woofer DC resistance... should be between 7 and 9 ohms. If it is open circuit, the voice coil is blown.

Hi i have 2x ev sx300 speakers (speakon) and 2x peavey es 315 (1/4 jack) can i daisy chain the ev's from channel a and the peavey's from channel B (all speakers are 8 ohm). Also should speakon...


Yes, you can put two 8 ohm speakers daisy chain per side MAX. The Speakon should have ONLY two wires on the +1 and -1 terminals unless you are using bridged mode which is NOT applicable in your configuration of speakers. Also be careful is you use any 1/4 inch speaker plugs in the sytem as the SLEEVE, not the TIP of channel A is the "hot" lead... get this to ground someplace and goodbye amp.

We just got a PMP6000 and this has to be the worst manual ever written. Not a word about bridge mode except that it has one. Do I have to rewire a speaker cable or what? Which fader would control the...


Yes, in bridge mode you will wire ONE Speakon that will have the two speaker wires connected to pins "1+" and "2+". You do NOT need the manual to do this, the info is right on the back of the PMP6000 itself. You will plug that Speakon into channel "B".

PLEASE note that you CANNOT go below 8 ohm speaker impedance. If your speakers are 4 ohm you MUST connect two in SERIES which requires special cables and the speakers MUST be identical. You can connect TWO 16 ohm speakers in parallel by daisy chaining, however 16 ohm speakers are NOT very common. With 8 ohm speakers you can connect EXACTLY one in bridged mode UNLESS you connect four of them in series-parallel which requires special cables and great care. Believe me you do NOT want to have an accident with this amp as repairing is extensive.

Lastly, put the speaker configuration switch down to the bridged mode.

This is how bridged mode works: Sliding the switch down basically configures the two power amps in monaural and one amp is inverted so there outputs are out of phase by 180 degrees effectively doubling the voltage.

Remember that BOTH wires in bridged mode are HOT and grounding one while amp is on will likely blow out one side or more.

What is the best powered mixer to go with my b215xl 1000watt speakers


The PMP 6000 or 4000 depending on how many channels and effects you need is a good match.

READ THE SPECS... the speakers are capable of 250 Watts RMS (not 1000 as that is PEAK) power... like the ridiculous claims of 4 Hp for shop vacuums that run on 120 volts.

The 4000 and 6000 will generate about 250 Watts per side into 8 ohm speakers so is well matched for the B215XL speakers... by matched we mean the speakers are not likely to get blown out.

Connect a 500 Watt per side amp to the speakers and you will be buying replacements in short order.

ALSO realize how much sound you will get from the speakers.. they will cover a 2000 square foot venue fairly well. I suggest you get a sound level meter so you have a metric of levels when you are using the system. If you need more sound, you can add a second set of the speakers in parallel.

I want to connect two passive b212 and 6 active b215 , i will use two active b215 for monitors ..... i am using a PMP 3000 Please advice,also where can i get a detailed numbered illustrations sheet for...


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.

I just both the Europower pmp6000 powerd mixer and Eurolive b215xl speakers and i need help conecting the speaker to the mixer. I will be using it with some mics at a function in an hotel. How do I connect...


use 1/4 inch speaker cables. hook one speaker up to "main 1 R" out and the other to "main 1 L" out. if you have additional main speakers, hook them up the the "main 2" outputs.

look for the "bridge amp mode" switch and move it to the "main L- main R" position.
