You will need 2 y patch cables 1/4in to make this happen, they need to be about 3 ft long, set one head on top of the other...then use a y patch cable and plug it into the main output on both heads, then plug it into the graphic input on the head you want to use for the mains....then take a y cable and plug it into the monitor output on both heads...then plug it into the graphic input of the other head, this one will run the monitors.

I can't seem to independently control effects on my mains AND monitors.

We'll need the make and model of your mixer in order to help you.

No sound from F1220D monitor if you "daisy chain" onto next active monitor.

I see no reason why this should happen, assuming you are going into the monitor through the Line In input and going out through the Mix Out jack. As long as the monitor is turned on and the indicator is lit, and the Line level controll is turned up, it should work. Does the monitor work on it's own, with no daisy chained monitors plugged into it?
I would suggest contacting Behringer customer service for an explaination. here is the link-

Cannot daisy chain when i try speaker goes dead

This is not correct. Call Peavy at Meridian and ask them. The PR-12 is intended to be Daisey chained... I know it well. If you bought it (them) new, it should be straight forward. If you bought it used someone may have tampered with the second 1/4 " phone plug in the back. The 1/4" phone operate in series, so this couldn't be a resistance issue; i.e., Ohms.

Can I connect my peavey 600b amp to aux or to my existing hifi

If you connect the Main 1/4" out on the front to you HiFi aux input it should work. You will need to play with the volume controls to set the proper level so as not to overload the aux buss. The XR-600B manual is here-

3 monitors required for emx5016cf-- daisy chain? Any way to EQ monitors?

There are several ways to solve the problem. Probably the simplest technically is to connect a powered speaker (or separate amplifier) to one of the ST OUT jacks in the master section of the top panel for the third speaker, and connect the other two speakers directly to the speaker jacks on the back. The drawback to this arrangement is the possibility of problems with setting the frequency correction (automatic equalizer adjustment). You would have the same problem with paralleling speakers (more on this in a subsequent paragraph) on one channel. It may help to use a second speaker from each channel for the "third" monitor so the automatic EQ is working with the same setup on each channel.

Another method is to daisy chain the mixer by connecting another mixer/EQ amplifier to the pre-EQ SUB OUT jacks to drive the third speaker. This permits independent equalization and level setting for that monitor. (You would probably set this EQ first with the main outputs all the way down, then set the EQ on the two primary monitors.)

Regarding multiple speaker connections to the speaker out jacks: Do not connect them in series ("daisy chain"). Unless they are very closely matched, varying responses in the speakers may cause distortion, and each will be running at about half power. You can connect them in parallel (the + terminals are both connected to the SPEAKER jack + terminal, and the likewise the - terminals are all connected together), if the total impedance is as least 4 Ohms. Note that when two speakers are in parallel, the impedance is calculated as follows: (X1*X2)/(X1+X2), X1 is the impedance of one speaker, and X2 is the impedance of the other. In other words, parallel connection reduces the impedance, and too many in parallel will overload the amplifier. If both speakers are 8 Ohms, this works out to 4 Ohms. See page 29 of the owner's manual.

How to fix extra speakers to peavy xr 886 and get the same power to each sperkers not just daisy chain each extra speakers

This powered mixer can only drive 4 ohms a channel...two eight ohm speaker cabinets daisy-chained makes one four ohm load. Ampifier wattage output ratings are usually higher driving four ohms than eight BUT never drive a lower rating than advertised by the manufacturer.

If you need more power than the mixer can provide, connect the "Master Out" or "Mono Out" connections (next to the speaker output jacks) to an external power amp. Connect additional speakers to this external amp and you're done.

I'm a guitar player, never had to mess with the PA system. I needed to come up with a monitor system to work with a non powered mixer used for powered mains. I can't afford good powered speakers, so I...

This mixer will run 2 8 ohm cabinets per side, if this is an older unit, it has only one NL2/combo jack per channel....with the button on the front panel in the Main Monitor position you can run 2 main cabinets and 2 monitor cabinets, you will have to daisy chain your speakers.All speakers powered from the back of the unit must be passive, no powered speakers.....if you want to use this head just to run moitors and run a pair of powered mains then connect the jack on the front that says main out to input of your powered speakers, hopefully your powered speakers can be daisy chained at low level, then if you want to use the 8600 to power only monitors, get a 1/4 in y cable and plug it into monitor out on the front of the mixer and then plug it into PA 1 and PA 2 to the right there and both sides will now be the monitor mix from this mixer and it will run 2 speakers per side, as long as the cabinets are 8 ohms.

How do i use the effects loop on peavey xr 600b?

plug the effects out into the input of your reverb/echo unit, plug the out put of the processor into an unused channel in the mixer, do NOT turn up the effects in that channel, to hear the effects in the main use the main level, to hear effects in the monitor use the monitor level. you must turn up the the effect send in the channel you want to hear the effects on and also the effects master.

First off it's outputs to your speakers. If you had an extra set of powered or amplified speakers you could "Y" cable your speaker outputs. Your passive speakers won't work without an amp. You really need powered speakers or an amp for your extra speakers. (if you had powered/amp'd speakers you could run them off one of you "aux" out for monitors. Do not daisy chain your speakers connecting twi together, you'll change the resistance/ohms and damage your speakers. Trust me, I do this for a living.
