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.

How can I get an instruction manual?


Hello,

Audiopipe website
http://www.audiopipe.com/pro-audio/pa-speakers
is apparently not very well organized, so that the access to the support area for PA speakers is not available.

You can read how to use your speakers in the review hereafter.

Speaker humms only. what causes that?


Incorrect connections or volume settings.

• In powering up, mixer first then amp

• In turning off , amp first then mixer


If hum still persist, without the mixer connected

then speaker amp may need servicing.

Would I need a mixer or amplifier with this product: Pyle-Pro Rack Mount 8 Channel Wireless Microphone System with 8 Lavalier/Headsets (PDWM8900)


The unit has a built in mixer as well as individual outputs. You would need an amplifier/speaker that could receive from teh mixed output jack of this. Use BALANCED TRS cable.

Peavey XR800F 8 channel - I can't get but very little sound to my big speakers. Help


Troubleshooting is always a "process of elimination." Have you tried hooking up your Peavey powered mixer to another set of speakers? How about connecting the speakers to another audio system? Your term "very little sound" could mean audio input problems, mixer/amp settings or failure and possibly speaker damage (internal passive crossovers). Please be more specific.

How do I connect my behringer mixer desk to


The first thing to do is to swap teh L & R INPUTS to the amplifier. Did the speaker that works change?
If som the problem is with the setting of the mixer deck. If it did not change, then the problem is with your speaker wiring of the dead speaker, the speaker itself, or that side of the amp.
If the working speaker did swap, that means problem is with the mixer. The question then becomes how are you connecting to the mixer. You should be using TRS 1/4 inch connectors or preferably XLR from the MAIN outputs. These are balanced outputs connections.
If the inputs are from one of the mono inputs, the PAN control for that channel will control how much goes to each speaker... If at center, both will get same signal.
There are so many possibilities that I can't evaluate them until you try the test to find if it is problem of the amp or the mixer that I have given you to try.

you can just piggyback the mixers - take the outputs from the mackie mixer (assuming it is NOT a powered mixer) ... those should be line level outputs - send them into a line level input on the digi 002 and then set that channel on the digi 002 and once set, just leave it, and control the mackie channels individually ... should work fine ...

You would need a 2 or 3 way crossover, depending on whether or not you biamp your tops. Simply go out of your main outs on the mixer into the input of the crossover. Go from the low output of your crossover to your low power amp input (subs), and the high output of the crossover to the high power amp input (tops). Then go from your outputs of your amps into the speakers themselves.

Can I use these to Power 2 x 200 w 8Ohms


Hi,
I think you should, the power supply could cost up to that price ( for a good one 13.8v ) and you could have a ground problem for the amps, humming sound if not properly ground.
Your welcome.
