Better way... Connect the main speakers via the Speakons and then put a Power Subwoofer to one of the Monitor connections IF you are not using both stage monitors. If you need to kill the lows to the mains, use the EQ in the PMP-3000.

Use the EQ that is USUALLY on the subwoofer to kill the highs to the sub.

Lot less cables and hardware.

REMEMBER for equipment safety, power ALL interconnected equipment from the same source be it a receptacle or power distribution system.

Powering parts of a system from receptacles strewn around a room is asking for trouble of ground loops and ground faults.

There is no crossover arrangement. On the PMP5000 they have a tunable filter INTENDED to do low pass for a subwoofer. When selecting this mode for a subwoofer The frequency of the low pass filter can be set between 30 and 200 Hz. This feature is NOT available on the PMP3000.

There is nothing related to a crossover in these amps other than what is mentioned above.

The MONO out is merely an analog summation of both the L and R channels.

SOURCE: I have a PMP 3000 and 2 B212XL. I want to know how many more B212's or other speakers I can connect to the PMP3000. The current setup lacks power at the moment.

Absolute maximum is two of these per side. The speakers are 8 ohm and two on each of the outputs would be 4 ohms which is the minimum allowed for the amplifier. You will get about 400 Watts RMS per side doing this. Please note that the stated 1200 watts for the amp is the PEAK (fakey) values put forth in all the ads we get now. With 4 total B212XL's you should be able to fill an indoor venue of about 10000 square feet with sound at the OSHA limit.

We are trying to purchase a pmp mixer for our church choir. What's the difference between the pmp 3000 and the pmp 4000? Thanks!


The answer is "Not Much"... they upped the rating for power out and added 1000 to the model number... I don't know of any circuitry difference between them... it would probably be minor. Functionality is the same.

I use a Mackie 1604vlz board. I have Passive EV Speakers that I use a QSC power amp for. I want to add one Powered Subwoofer to this. How can I hook up without buying a crossover? Can I run out frome the...


You can, but I would not suggest it. Depending upon the input design of the powered sub, the highs might not get filtered out. Many subs assume that they are only receiving the lows. You are better off using a crossover between the mixer and the amp for highs and the powered sub for the lows. Please note that the crossover will give you much more control over the sound quality.

MAckie 1604 VLZ Pro Mixer, running QSC 1850 with jbl's from main outs. I would like to hook up powered subwoofers. What is the correct pathway? kenshireman@msn.com


The best way is to use a two-way crossover between the mixer and the amplifiers. In your case, the low output from teh crossover would go to the powered subs, the highs to the QSC. Use the crossover adjustment to set the frequency crossover point to get the sound quality you require.

Where to connect my Subwoofer to PMP 2000


This is NOT convenient with the 2000 unit...ASSUMING you subwoofer has mid and high frequency cutoff built in, what you should do is to mix the two preamp signals in a small mixer and send those to a POWERED subwoofer OR to an amplifier that is driving the subwoofer.

My behringer pmp 3000 has litle power i thing is 3000 or how much power it haveit? I put 2 speaker only ,,,, thankyou


The unit should drive 400 Watts RMS into a 4 ohm load per side.

The amount of sound power you get will VASTLY depend on speaker efficiency. You would likely use at least 15 inch speakers with the unit.

Fuse and fuse holder needed for Behringer 3000 pmp mixer


Try this Behringer support:

BEHRINGER USA, Inc.
18912 North Creek Parkway, Suite 200
Bothell, WA 98011
Tel.: +1 425 672 0816
Fax: +1 425 673 7647

I just repaired a PMP3000.

A bit of warning on these. Do not let a speaker leads get pulled while powered. They can arc out the power amp causing extensive damage.

If the fuse ever blows do NOT replace the fuse as much more damage will result. Service the unit before using.
