Shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.

I have 2 main yamaha speaker for my house and 2 other speaker acting as a monitor for the stage. the stage speaker has it's own mini all-in-one-installed-power-amp-mixer connected to the main mixer. the house speaker is connected to the power amp and then to the main mixer. so the problem is, the house speaker has poor sound quality(almost like it's covered with some sort) compared to the stage monitor. shud i get an external equaliser? i'm using MG166CX 16-Channel Mixer as the main mixer.

An external equalizer will not help this at all. The problem is likely within the amp (feeding the main speakers), the connections from the board to the amp, or the speakers themselves. In other words, the answer would be "NO." Best of luck!

SOURCE: what do i need in a mixer? i want to connect my

For dj use, industry standard would be something like a Pioneer DJM600 mixer. 4 channels w/ effects and a mic input. To use kaoss it's best to go into Send/Return input through the effects. By tapping on Send, all sound is sent out to the kaoss pad, and comes back into the mixer into the Return inputs. By doing this you can have the kaoss pad on sitting next to the mixer ready to apply effects all the time. Then connect the master outputs from mixer into your amp, or straight to powered speakers. Kaossilator is more of an instrument than effects unit, so plug in to channel 3 after your 2 cdjs in channel 1 and 2. You still have a spare channel left. I use 2 x 1200s and 2 x cdjs with kaoss pad through effects channel in this way. A 4 channel mixer is plenty.

SOURCE: how to connect mixer to a crown power base 2 amp

just use the main left and right outputs of the behringer to run xlr (3 prong balanced) to 1/4 inch (looks like a big headphone plug) cables into the inputs of the crown amp. the mixer has the xlr outputs and the amp has 1/4 inch inputrs, sop the cables will have to reflect that on both ends. run the outputs of the amp (rca outputs, i believe, you may have to get a rca plug to 1/4 inch jack adapter, and then use a 1/4 inch speaker cable) to the inputs of the speakers, again, the amp has rca outputs and the speakers will likely have 1/4 inputs, so you will have to address that wil an adapter. have each speaker in its own channel.

SOURCE: can i connect the pv 112 to the pv 118 subwoofer

Generally speaking you should only send low frequencies to subs. The highs, while lower in power than the lows, will over time harm the voice coils. The ideal way to do this is to use an external crossover netween the main output and the amp input with the higher range going to a general set of speakers. Send the lows through the second channel of the amp and then to the subs.

In short, while not recommended, yes you can hook them up in parallel.

SOURCE: Im useing the Yamaha MG24/14FX

The MG24/14FX is a mixer only, with no amplifier built-in. It can't drive speakers directly. You'll need powered speakers or separate amps and speakers.

Just bought the mixer and when i hook up the mixer to the amp the amp showing it clipping and no sound to the main speakers


If you are getting signal from you mixer at leaves tha are clipping your amp, then the mixer is working and at least the front end of your amp is working to register the clipping. In that case, your problem is-
1. The amp outputs are blown, check by hooking up to a different amp.
2, The speaker wires are connected incorrectly.
3. The speakers are not working. Try a different set.

Just bought the mackie 1604 vlz3 mixer and cant figure out how to get sound to the main speakers, the speakers and amps are connected correctly


Simplest is to use the LR button at the bottom of the channel strips you want to send to the main mix. Make sure you set the gain for each channel in use so that the clip light just occasionally blinked then back off a fraction.
If you want to use sub channels assign the strip to the appropriate one 1/2 or 3/4 and the assign the sub to the main mix and bring the subs up.

Soundcraft efx 12


Good luck. Your mixer only has one aux out to supply only one stage monitor out. Only way to make it work would be to use the panning controls of each channel to different outputs to the Left and Right main outs for stage monitors and aux out as front of house speakers. I would get another separate mixer for monitor such as another efx 12 with every input connected to both mixers, then use the panning and main outputs to that. Sorry. Just not enough of mixer. You need an aux out for each individual's monitor.

I don't have a problem. Just a question. I have a behringer pmp3000. Where is the best place to connect two mackie active speakers for maximum results.


There is no such thing as "MAXIMUM" results... Connect the speakers to the MAIN L and R jacks on the face using 1/4 inch TRS (balanced) interconnect cables. DO NOT USE TS unbalanced cables!!! Also an absolute requirement is that the connected active speakers are powered from the SAME receptacle as this mixer. Yes, this means running extension cords, but unless you can tolerate noise due to ground bounce and damage to your equipment respect this requirement... it isn't in the manuals but is well known among professional sound people. Also please read my tip in regard to a hazard for PMP mixers on Fixya tips regarding Channel A when using 1/4 inch adapters from the Speakon outputs.

Aux1 and 2 are not working...what is the fix on the emx5016cf yamaha board


You are NOT trying to drive speakers from the aux outputs are you? These are LINE outputs that should be using TRS balanced lines to either powered speakers or amplifiers. Often these are used for monitors. The monitoors MUST be powered versions or use external amplifier if the speakers are passive..

Can i hook up a seperate power amp . to the pmp 6000 powerd mixer . for more over all power.


You can add extra amps driving ADDITIONAL speakers... you CANNOT parallel amps driving the same speakers.

Drive these seperate amps from the MAINS OUT connnectors using TRS and balanced lines to those external amps.
